Stock pictures are an invaluable resource for media marketing, particularly digital marketing. Stock photos address issues such as time limits and the hunt for specific photographs to match specific settings by supplying excellent quality, editorial-like photography without the need for several weeks of planning, filming, and editing. Every year, stock media saves advertisers millions of dollars while also saving them time by providing inexpensive b-roll, material to use as pitch decks, and critical graphics for brand campaigns. Creating current branding requires consistency, which stock photography excels at. By using stock images from the same shot, the same model in multiple circumstances, or an individual photographer with a defined aesthetic, advertising efforts and branded material can achieve the consistency required for recall of the brand and identity.
