Web design resources are often cheap, but they add up: stock photography, fonts, a sound file or two; before you know it your assets for a project have taken a fairly hefty bite out of your profit margin.
The answer used to be to increase your prices and pass the expense on to your client. But in this economy that will often price you out of the market and lose you the job.
Wouldn't it be cool if you could reduce some of that cost? Maybe claw back a little of the hard earned cash that you're spending on stock? Well, this could be the answer...
Lootback is a brand new service that offers cashback on purchases you make from some of the biggest names in the stock industry, including iStock; Shutterstock; all of Envato's marketplaces; DepositPhotos and Thinkstock.
How does this work? Let's say you're going to top up your account by buying 650 credits at iStock, that will cost $967; Lootback will provide you with a 14% discount code, reducing the price to $831.62; then once you've placed your order Lootback will send you 8% cashback via PayPal, reducing the total cost to $765.09. With no effort expended you've saved yourself $201.91!
There's also a hidden benefit on top of the cashback: Lootback has aggregated the search functions of these sites, meaning that you not only save money, but time too. And time is... yep, you got it: money.
