Do you Flickr your items and what is your Flickr Profile URL ?
Alright, we all know Flickr is just another great place to showcase your items and creativity, but i was interested to find out how many of you guys use Flickr for this purpose. Me personaly, i didnt use flickr much for this, but i find flickr also good inspirations recource and to follow whats new etc.
Cool feature is, you can also add friends like on MySpace or Facebook and build some sort of friends community (i have only a few friends on there, but i am working on it to increase the number LOL ). We can start adding eachother as friends on there, here is me on Flickr ...I did a small research and find out that there is no Envato Authors group yet (what a shame) and decided to create one, you can view group here http://www.flickr.com/groups/envato_authors . We can start to build our own “better exposure” community on there by adding some of our items to the group pool. Within time when the number of group members and items in the pool grows, we will start to gain extra online exposire…i think this is another good way to advertise our stuff. Not to forget to mention that these items in the group will be also visible at the new authors community site we are building, you can see details about this project at www.graphicriver.net/forums/thread/i-have-a-dream/15750 (if you didnt yet). For now there is only 1 forum topic as “welcome”, but we can create some other in future when things goes on.
All this is ofcource just ideas on expanding the alternative promotion ways and extra exposure for our items on envato. Join Flickr and add your items to your profile, then join the group and add your items to the group pool. We will randomly select 18 athors who add 10 of their items to the group and award them an 40×40 pixels micro-banner space for 1 month located at the sidebar on graphictuning site.
Any thoughts and new ideas for the group are welcome
I’ve never thought of flickr as a tool for promoting my items, but it’s worth a try thanks:)
I’ve joined group and added you to my contacts
Thanks rzepak ...yeah, me also i never thought of this before, but just thinking logicaly and considering the number of all authors, i am sure this can turn into another great alternative to promote our stuff. There are some groups on flickr with huge numebr of members and they stay always on top of groups…why the “envato authors” group not? …all depends on us and we authors, are the only one who can make this happen.
Just a small tip, dont forget that flickr photo descriptions also supports anchor text…you can easy enter the URL of your item located here with your Affiliate ID
Nice idea.. worth to try:) Joined..
great … GARRO i discovered the psdtuts group through your flickr and joined. Also i leave there a message about “envato authors” group, hope it doesnt get considered spammy LOL
I never thought of this, but yes, it’s a great idea
I’ll join in a bit
Great idea, Gunay!
Just joined the group
