Everyone has an opinion – and the topic of stock photography is not exempt. There is much written about why you should avoid stock photos, and in the world of big business brands, that is good advice. But this blog post is not being written to the gurus of big business marketing. This post is for the small church “do-it-yourselfer” [truncate](is that even a word?). The one who is trying to keep-up with posting to their church website while working a separate full-time job, juggling their growing family, and preparing their Sunday School lesson to teach each week. Yes, you! You have a servant’s heart, and making sure that your church website stays current is part of your passionate service unto the King. So let’s take a quick look at why stock photography is exactly what you need!
Stock photography provides for you the opportunity to utilize gorgeous, clear pictures on your website. No need to pay expensive photo shoot fees to obtain the same feel for your website guests. Some stock images may have a small price tag, but there are many free options out there. If you are lucky enough to have an “in-house” photographer, the ChurchSpring team has created a spot for you to upload your own professional-looking photos!
A quality photo shoot is not only expensive, but it’s also time consuming. Your time is valuable, and your time spent face-to-face with people is important. Royalty free stock photography will save you time! It is available for immediate download, and the variety from which to choose means that you will find the perfect fit for your website. Our ChurchSpring designers have gathered many stock images that will fit the needs of your ministry and they are completely free. Take a look at the variety in your ChurchSpring Photo Library!
Beautiful photos immediately draw people in a way that words alone can’t accomplish. Using appropriate stock photos will allow your message to come across loud and clear. Visitors to your website should not be distracted by fuzzy photography. Their eye should be pleased with the harmony created by a great background, and their focus should be on the written content. The image is primarily there to help your guest remember the subject matter.
