Collaborating with Getty Images is a great way to start earning a passive income and expand your earning opportunities. This article gives you the rundown on how to start collaborating and earning.
Getty Images is the world’s largest photo agency. They are a supplier of stock images, editorial photography, video, and music for business and consumers. It targets three markets—creative professionals (advertising and graphic design), the media (print and online publishing), and corporate (in-house design, marketing and communication departments).
Webfluential wants to help our influencers by giving them an opportunity to market and monetize themselves through Getty Images. This collaboration will allow influencers to fast track their way to becoming a Getty Images contributor. Only influencers who are signed-up to Webfluential can be put forward for this collaboration.
How it works
Getty Images releases a mass brief to influencers via the Webfluential website. The brief has a specific theme to which Getty requests influencers to create content around, for example, in the latest brief the theme is Human Touch.
This theme prompts influencers to create content (images) around what they perceive as human touch. This could be literal, figurative or suggestive depending on what your angle to the theme is. You can create as much or as little as you like.
Once you have created content around the theme, you can submit your proposed content to Getty images via Webfluential, which will then be accessed and curated. If your content is approved, you will be notified and it will then become available on Getty images for licensing by consumers with a Getty Images membership.
Currently, the briefs are only available according to region. If the brief isn’t available in your region, it won’t appear on your profile under earn, but keep an eye out for when briefs do become available in your region to ensure that you don’t miss out on the opportunity.
How you earn
The great thing about collaborating with Getty Images is that it’s a long term earning opportunity. Each time your image gets licensed you will earn royalties on that image. This means that even years after the image has been uploaded, you could still be earning from that content.
Sounds great right? Let’s get you earning.

All you need is a basic understanding of social media marketing and a curious mind!
The passion of an influencer is captured in their content. Their writing, their videos, and their images are all expressions of their opinions and are held in high regard by their followers. Webfluential analyzes the impact of content on an audience and compares this to the content of similar audiences, as well as the historical performance of an influencer’s content. This helps us to spot trends over time like the newest rising stars, the most consistent content creators, the latest “trending posts” and helps match them to the brands working with influencers.
Once an influencer search and collaboration are completed, the third and probably most important, a pillar in any influencer marketing effort is measurement & reporting.
As the influencer marketing industry becomes bigger, Influencers have started investing not only in content but also in analytics. Why? Because they want to be able to track the success of their content, and thus be able to understand what they need to do to improve on.
Brands, on the other hand, want to be able to see exactly how well an influencer’s posts perform historically before booking them. Brands can now see the influencer’s engagement rates and the type of content they produce straight from the Snapshot report (and media kit) when searching and booking influencers on Webfluential.
Webfluential is constantly working to give brands and influencers the tools that do the work for them, in this case- The Snapshot Report. This tool tracks all the relevant data around influencer’s content and produces a real-time online report that brands can see.
