We had a great conversation with CEO Keith Gentile and VP of Marketing Linda Whitehead. The information they gave our listeners was great and well informed. If you do not know about Agency Access and are a photographer, they are a great resource for photographers to help market and maintain a successful business.
Our sole purpose is to help freelance commercial artists, like photographers and illustrators, their reps, and stock agencies find new clients. Through the marketing services we offer, artists are able to find and contact buyers of commercial artwork like ad agencies, magazines, corporations and more. We have members from across the globe who have found work using our services.
We started back in 1996, when technology was very different than it is today. We began with a database of creative buyers, though it looked much different than our database does today!
As technology has changed, we found ourselves able to do more and more online. As we added new services, we discovered something – artists need more than a database to market themselves. We realized they needed to know how to market. Today, we offer many services to guide, encourage and educate the artists who use our marketing services so they get the most from their membership.
