Recently I cam across a brand new digital platform that has an all new take on generating revenue through the concept of displaying curated art digitally on peoples flat panel displays in their homes. The company is called WindowSight and they provide an opportunity for artists to share their work and get paid ‘per view’. This is a very different take to the more or less defunct stock image market and is the first company I have come across that actually offers something fair and tangible to the artist on an ongoing basis.
The company offer the opportunity for any artist to submit their work and subsequently get paid as people view it around the world in their homes. The concept of being paid per view is not new, but this particular take on it is the first I have seen that offers a revenue sharing system for artists.
Signing up as an Artist (or a user) is simple and straightforward. If you are keen to get paid for your art you can use the following link that includes 3 months premium user access for free. https://windowsight.com/invite/POLAR That gives you the ability to try it and see if it is suitable for you.
To be clear, I am not affiliated with WindowSight in any shape or form. I just think this is a really interesting and unique way to earn revenue from art and am currently in the process of trialling the platform with some of my own Antarctic photography. If you give it a try, please let me know what you think. I will do a follow up post with my own experiences once I have had more time to see how it goes.
