Lookstat is a web service that automatically lets you track your online sales by image at multiple sites. We've already written about its Analytics functions in a previous post. They've just launched a new home page to focus on the new stock photo backoffice services. The features and services they have been developing are summarized by the slogan:
You Create the Images – We Do the Rest
We’re committed to reducing friction and making life better for photographers and our goal with our Back Office services is to allow photographers to focus on doing what they do best, which is creating great images. We provide a flexible, cost-effective way to take care of the rest.
The full menu of Back Office services for stock photographers includes:
- Keywording (SEO friendly and IPTC-embedded)
- MR management
- Analytics (still free, some enhancements in the next couple of weeks)
First information about pricing is that there will be a flat fee per image. The service is directed to stock photographers interested in microstock, active microstock photographers, photographers who want keyworded images for their own sites.
