You’d better also try your best to uphold image quality when republishing their visual content if the website has embed code for that visual, use that code.
This is why we try to make a point of creating embed code when we create visuals.
It makes sharing easier for those that choose to republish the visual, and helps them maintain the quality and resolutionin the process. It’s no wonder proper source attribution is built right into the platform with their Repin button, pinterest is all about content sharing. However, sometimes the original creator has included a URL, hashtag, and similar indicator of authorship, when you go to repin content.
Since they have filters that allow you to select images you can use for commercial purposes and also modify, adapt, or build upon.
You do not, you can’t always trust those filters users was known to upload photos and images that perhaps they have the license to use.
I recommend purchasing a license to a stock photo site, if you need to be totally safe. Lots of marketers are attempting to find images for content just like blog posts, and don’t wantto pay for a stock photo each single time. Many people go to Google Images and simply find an image they like. Now look. You certainly gonna be giving them credit for their efforts, Therefore if you’re publishing a post from a guest blogger.
In a few ways, as a matter of fact.
So thing is, sometimes marketers get a little protective of their stuff as there are ‘less than scrupulous’ people out there who take content and later try to pass it off as their own. All that hard work, and none of the credit. One of the concerns to have in mind when quoting text from someone else’s website is that many companies have content usage guidelines that will make it pretty easy for you to know how, or if, they look for you to use their content. Take a look at HubSpot’s content usage guidelinesto get an idea what these might look like,but in a nutshell, they’re the guidelines laid out to try to ensure you use the right stuff in the right way. As a result, well, it depends on the terms you’ve worked out together.
Therefore in case, however, you’ve agreed to give credit to a designer, there could be some space in the visual that gives them credit for their work.
In that case, you don’t ought to worry about attributing the design work to anyone.
You could hire a ghost designer so that the content looks like it was designed in house by your company. I want to ask you something. What happens ifyou hired a designer to create something for website how do you give credit to the designer? Remember, if you’re creating a SlideShare, you have the benefit of being able to make links clickable within the SlideShare. Perhaps to a lesser extent since the volume is typically lower, and turnaround times longer, gated and long form content assets are prone to very similar attribution problems, problems, probably just being that the sheer volume of content the format offers.
His company is mentioned with hyperlinked text to his website, not only does David Meerman Scott get credit for his quote.
Certainly a nice gesture, an added bonus is the link to his Twitter handle by no means necessary. That’s the entire point. They’re ghosts. Maintaining a blog takes help, sometimes from guest authors orghost writers. You don’t really need to give credit to that author, I’d say in case you’re using a ghost writer. That link, however, shouldn’t just go to their homepage. Oftentimes eMarketer also receives a link back to their site, the copy around the statistic not only gives credit to the company that published the data.
Point that link to the actual page on which that data lives. Sometimes it is not a matter of people being jerks they might just not knowhow the internet works.
