I hope you’re doing great! I’ve had a busy couple of weeks – I just got back from a fantastic weekend trip to San Diego and a very restorative week in Kauai, Hawaii with a good friend.

I’ll be in Pennsylvania for about 9 more days before Don and I head to California again to escape the humidity and visit some friends. Of course I’m going to hang out with my nephew as much as humanly possible in the meantime. :)

Today I thought I’d send you some websites I get a ton of value from. They all have royalty-free, commercial use allowed, great-looking images that you can download for free.

Of course you can use images many ways – here are some of my favorite uses:

First, you can pop them on items you sell on UseGearBubble. For example, I grabbed a penguin image from one site and popped it on this mug:

It’s ugly, but it DOES sell – though I recommend letting it sell passively and not running paid ads to something like this. :)

You can also combine images to make more intricate designs. For example we’ve sold 100+ units of this mug, which is the combination of 2 stock photos:

 

Where to find Royalty-free stock photos


You can use these sites to f
ind mockups for your sales material. For example, I found a t-shirt mockup on a stock photo site, then put another royalty-free photo on top of it:

These photos can also be used for blog posts/books/any training material or to create engaging pictures for your social media posts/ads. Posts with images always do better.

There are lots of photo sites but I like these particular ones because they have easily searchable databases, tons of options, high quality pictures and there’s no signup required:

If you ever exhaust your options on those sites there’s also http://www.kozzi.com. You do need to sign up for that one but you get 5 free images and then there’s a flat fee of $1/image.

To be clear, I don’t get financial benefit from sharing any of those – just thought it might help.

Have a great day!
