What are stock content options for small and medium businesses?

As the owner of a small or medium business, you need to make your marketing dollars stretch as far as possible. You probably know that using images in your marketing materials is one of the best ways to engage your audience and attract interest, but photos can be expensive. If you’re not ready to hire a dedicated team of photographers and graphic designers to create your own unique images, you may want to consider purchasing stock content for your marketing needs.
There are a variety of stock content options for small and medium businesses. What’s ideal for one business may not be ideal for you, so it’s important to do your homework and select a plan that’s a good fit for your needs. Here are a few of the more popular purchasing options for stock content for SMB.
Single Projects 
If you only need a few images (up to 25) for a single marketing project, you may want to buy your images on demand. Once you make your selections and purchase the images you want, you’ll have an entire year to download them. That’s plenty of time to finalize your marketing project and put it into action.
Ongoing Projects 
For ongoing projects, you can purchase stock content for SMB on an annual or month-to-month basis. Shutterstock offers plans for individuals and multiple users, so whether you’re working on your own or with a team, you’ll be able to select a plan that meets your needs perfectly. Our annual plans offer the best price for the images you receive. If you’re more comfortable making a short-term commitment, our month-to-month plans are also priced competitively.  
Do you only anticipate needing a few images each month? Try our 10 images-per-month subscription option. If you have a lot of marketing projects going on at once and need access to as many images as possible, you can select a subscription option that offers up to 750 images each month.
Team Plans 
Need affordable stock content access for multiple users? Our team plans allow you to share up to 750 images with four or more collaborators. Our team plan subscriptions are a great way to save money while providing every specified member of your team with legal coverage and full access to stock content.
