For some, posting photos to Instagram is a passion and EyeEm is an app that helps phonetographers make the most of what they love to do. Like many apps, EyeEm has a place for users to try on different filters and connect with others, but what really sets this platform apart is that it also serves as a marketplace where you can make money from the photos that are shared.
The marketplace provides a place for brands to source content to be used in digital ads, magazines and other forms of media. Through licensing, photographers are able to hold onto copyright and ownership, but brands are able to make use of the photos for marketing purposes. EyeEm takes 50% of the revenue, but this is still a great opportunity to get your name out there and make a buck.
