Dreamstime has entered into an exclusive partnership with the Korean agency ImageClick to make professional-quality images available to the Korean market at microstock prices. ImageClick will launch its exclusive brand (www.i22.com) that will make it possible for Korean visitors to search the content in their native language.
Established in 2000, ImageClick was Korea's very first online stock library. Voted the favorite image library just seven years later by Koren graphic designers, ImageClick is now one of the country's top three image libraries.
"This is a rich target market for microstock," said Serban Enache, CEO and co-creator of Dreamstime. "Partnering with ImageClick provides us access to a clientele that might not otherwise have been extended the opportunity to take advantage of this easy and accommodating service at an affordable price."
Revolutionizing the relationship between the traditional distributors and microstock collections, the alliance follows Dreamstime's strategic efforts with similar online portals, such as Brightqube, Stockvault, Openphoto and Picfindr.
With the success of this contributor-level and outside-the-box alliance strategies, Dreamstime has experienced its most notable growth rate to date. Within the last six months, the increased collection exposure has nearly doubled its own traffic of more than 160,000 unique visitors who browse the site daily.
