User Spotlight: How the brand Tidy Mango used SC Stockshop lifestyle stock images to build her visual brand

About a month ago we received an email from our friends at With Grace & Gold telling us about their client who was needing images for the website they were building for her brand. Kelly from With Grace & Gold shared that this client was building a business and she didn't have access to the professional images that she hoped would be the polishing touch for her branding. Kelly and Andra recommended the SC Stockshop and our Lifestyle Collection images as a solution (thanks friends!) and the client was thrilled with the results!

In Kelly's words, "Your work totally calmed her fears about not having professional photography as she starts her business journey - so thank you!!!"

We were so thrilled to hear this that we reached out to Jenna of Tidy Mango directly to get her take on using lifestyle styled stock to build her visual brand. Below is our interview with Jenna!

1. What type of work do you do?
 
Tidy Mango is a full service professional organization business helping people to organize where they live & love. These days, everyone is so go-go-go that organization becomes more of a dream rather than a priority. Clients seek out Tidy Mango to help create their dream space so they can live more intentionally and be surrounded with only what they need and love. 

2. Why did you choose these styled stock images?
 
I recently just launched a whole new brand and website for Tidy Mango. I was looking to have a brand appearance that strongly represented the level of luxury service and customer experience that Tidy Mango provides. I had strong content and a strong message but I was lacking all imagery to put the last big BANG on my website. I was working with the brand and web design company With Grace and Gold and they suggested images from Stockshop. The minute I saw the images, I knew I had to have them. Their simplicity, elegance,and luxurious feeling completely brought the perfect final touch to the design. Once they were added everything was simply lovely. 
 
3. How many images did you purchase?
 
I purchased 3 images for my website. But, I am totally signed up for the monthly image freebie's! I even utilized one of the images that was provided in June's email subscription for one of my blog posts. I just can't get over how beautiful ALL the images are. 
 
4. How many different ways did you use the images (i.e. homepage banner, buttons, contact page, etc)?
 
The images were featured in my home page, service page, contact page, and in a blog post.

5. How do you think the use of styled stock will affect the launch of your business/website?
 
The images brought my whole website together. Since Tidy Mango is a professional organization service, clients are dreaming of clean, bright, lovely spaces and that's exactly the feeling that these images portrayed. When clients visit www.tidymango.com they understand that they are going to experience a high-end luxurious organization service that not only makes their spaces more functional but also creates an organized space that reflects their style. 
 
Thank you so much Jenna for sharing your SC Stockshop experience! We hope that as a reader you feel encouraged and inspired by how with only 3 images Jenna was able to build out all of the imagery on her website! Take a peek at Jenna's site to see how everything came together and be sure to grab your own Lifestyle Collection images in the shop!

THE SERIOUS LEGAL STUFF

With this transaction Buyer acknowledges that the purchase comes with a non-exclusive limited use license so that the Purchaser may use the image for personal or professional use in the normal course of Purchaser's business.

Purchaser may crop the image and overlay the image with text or pdfs of product designs as fits Purchaser's needs, but Purchaser may not otherwise alter, edit or manipulate the image.

Shay Cochrane remains the sole and exclusive owner and holder of the copyright in the image and the Purchaser may not sell, lease, loan, transfer, assign, or give away the image or a derivative thereof or otherwise allow a third-party to use the image in any way.

The Purchaser may not use SC Stockshop images to promote styling related workshops, webinars, classes, how-to-style blog posts or newsletters, or any styling related training.

NOW, IN PLAIN ENGLISH

These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.

As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!  

Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!  

By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.

It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.  

Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited!  This is not meant to scare you.  

If you have any questions or concerns about the legal use of our images please don't hesitate to shoot us an e-mail! We don't bite!
