Posted on 4/22/2013 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (1)

Alamy has introduced a new forum for contributors as part of their continuous improvement strategy. Access the forum here or here. Following the website redesign in April, the new forum has a fresh interface, enhanced features and is encouraging positive engagement within its community of photographers.

Check here for an explanation of why they found it was necessary to update the old forum and why they are focusing on social media more than ever. They are also looking for feedback on how they can improve the structure of the forum, or general suggestions for Alamy overall.

James Allsworth, Social Media Manager, commented: “Our old forum had over 20,000 registered users and was a popular tool amongst photographers. We’re keen to build an even stronger community and see this change as the first step. The forum is a great place to get honest advice from real photographers who really understand Alamy.”

The forum includes a ‘suggestions & ideas’ area to actively encourage contributors to feed back on how the Alamy experience could be improved.  Alan Capel, Head of Content, commented: “We’re known for our honest and transparent communications with contributors and we’ve been looking for ways to actively engage with the people that help make Alamy successful. The message for our contributors is ‘we’re listening’.”
