Veer Offers Cash Contributor Incentives

Posted on 5/5/2010 by Julia Dudnik Stern | Printable Version | Comments (2)

Veer has announced “Dash for Cash,” a supplier incentive program the Corbis-owned company says will give away hundreds of thousands of dollars for images contributed to the Marketplace between now and June 30.

Contributors have the chance to earn up to $1.40 per approved image. Other than the existing Marketplace maximum of 100 images per week, there are no caps on submission volumes. An additional $500 cash bonus prize will be awarded to a winner chosen from among Veer Marketplace’s Twitter followers (@veermarketplace).

Cash incentives per image will vary for new and existing contributors and based on how many total images are approved as part of the “Dash for Cash” program. As contributors have more of their images approved, their per-image-payout increases. For example, new contributors will receive $0.35 per image for fewer than 200 images, $0.70 per image for 200–399 and $1.40 for more than 400. Existing contributors with large Marketplace collections reach higher per-image rewards with lower image approval totals.

Veer promises to make payments in September. Senior director of creative content Aaron Booth said the company is also a few months away from launching a revamped Web site.

    $.35 to $1.05 per image, huh?
    A guy approaches a beautiful woman at a bar. He says: "Hi, will you sleep with me for a million dollars?" The lady thinks for a second, and replies, "Sure, why not." The guy says: "How about $20?" Horribly offended, the woman turns red and huffs: "What kind of girl do you think I am?" He says: "We know what kind of girl you are, now we're just negotiating price."
    Moral: if you're going to sell out, don't sell out for cheap.
