My First Year Cost Me
Every website needs great photos to draw attention and attract clients. During my first year of private practice, I received a fine for copyright infringement. I made a rookie mistake. Like many do-it-yourselfers, I just did a Google search to find some pictures to post on my website. It was too easy to do a right-click and save. What a mistake that was. The fine cost me more than I made in a month.
As the business owner, you are responsible even if you hire a website designer. If you do not take your own pictures, make sure you purchase the license to use the photos on your site or download them from a royalty-free site.
Since that time, I learned to look for royalty-free websites. I’ve collected a few of my favorites and have posted them for your benefit. Don’t be like me, get your royalty free photos, click here.
If you know of other sites to add to my collection, please add them to the comment section.
