At work, I often hear people talking about anything and everything. This time my listening ear noticed a story about how to earn money by taking photos?The name: “Scoopshot“, an app where you take photos which you can then automatically upload and submit to P2S Media Group Ltd. This ensures that they end up with the editors of Metro. If your photo is chosen, you will receive a reward very quickly!
Scoopshot is a result of modern society. Everyone has a cell phone, so why should it not be possible to use it? The application works very intuitively. You start the app and after a simple registration you are immediately presented with assignments that are served to you, taking into account the country in which you live.
The name says it all, if you see or experience an important event, take a photo of it right away. This is an initiative called crowdsourcing and this can turn into a win-win situation for both the company and the person. Companies easily get hundreds of different photos from which they can choose the best. In addition, the individual with the winning photo takes money out with very little effort. Tip: an interesting photo is more likely to be chosen. In addition, it is often requested to have a minimum number of people in the photo.
In the Netherlands, Metro is the partner of P2S Media Group Ltd. and therefore your shot photos may appear in this newspaper. An assignment can differ from shooting a picture of the new spring sun to spotting a celebrity. The reward for the assignment differs from a few tens to € 70 to € 80, or a nice pocket money for everyone. Tip: photos of important or intense events are also greatly appreciated without the need for an assignment. This is obvious, since you are one of the first to know the news.
The interface is neat, simple and effective. No unnecessary information, a large button to be able to shoot the photo right away for the moment and below that 3 buttons: tasks, photos and me. When you press ‘tasks’ the assignments are immediately shown to you and if you still want to shoot a photo there is also an icon in the upper right corner of the action bar. This button is immediately available in every screen of the app, which is a smart decision from Scoopshot. The photo button leads you to your photo collection that you have taken with the application. It is also possible to import photos from your normal photo collection. You can do this easily by pressing the menu button and then choosing import. Tip: photos may not be more than 48 hours old, after which they lose their topicality. You can also use the ‘me’ button to enter the menu where you can choose whether you receive a notification when there is a new assignment, what information you have entered on your profile and whether they can publish your name under your shot. Here you can of course also adjust your profile or log out if necessary.
When you register with Scoopshot you are not immediately asked for your financial details. These are only necessary if your photo is actually selected. If you really have a photo that is newsworthy and also looks perfect, it goes as follows.
Assuming that you have taken a photo without immediately selecting an assignment, it can be found in your Scoopshot collection. Press the photo and then you can choose to send it as a special news photo or to submit it for an assignment.
After this, you go through a number of steps which you have to complete in order to hand in the photo. First, if it is a special news photo, you will have to determine your price which you think the photo is worth. If this is not the case then you will have to choose for which assignment the photo is intended.
After that, in both cases you will have to provide the location where the photo was shot, you can enter the address manually if necessary. In addition, you will be asked for a description, possibly for a category and a confirmation of your data. You can then send it and, if you wish, also share it on Facebook.
Tip: if you press the menu button, you can press FAQ (frequently asked questions). It contains all kinds of tips, but unfortunately it is in English.
The person at work said that he had earned € 50 a few days ago. You would think a nice extra, but this has been a lucky one. Your photo will really have to stand out, think of composition, news value, color, etc. Yet I recommend it to everyone, because who doesn’t like to find his or her photo in the newspaper? An easy and intuitive application that does exactly what it should do and nothing more. Try it out and let us know if you were lucky.
