What is the difference between premium listing and standard listing?

Premium listing gets you preferred placement on the pages as well as the blog. These listings are placed strategically before standard listings for maximum exposure to potential buyers. Some partners report that premium Listings get 10x-20x more impressions than standard listings. 

Premium Listing

In the premium listing, you get both -

Page listing

  1. Placement on the page (example-food photography) with a link to your profile.
  2. Your photos will be showcased in the gallery. 

Blog listing

  1. Premium placement in positions 1-8 on the blog with 5 photos for your listing to stand out
  2. Direct link to your profile

Standard Listing

In the standard listing, you will only be featured only in the Category-specific blog listing (see the screenshot below).

  • Placement will be after the premium listings
  • No listing on the category page
  • 2 photos in your listing
  • Team discretion to add you to the blog.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get a premium listing? How much does it cost?

There are only 8 premium listing spots for each category that will be given on a 1st come 1st serve basis. Also, only Shutterturf approved photographers who have at least 1 active listing are eligible for a premium listing, so if you don't have an account with Shutterturf yet, please apply here - https://www.shutterturf.com/form-submission/ . 

However, If you are already an approved photographer with Shutterturf, please send us an email at [email protected], and we will send you all the details there.

What happens when I pay for a premium listing?

Positions are allocated on a 1st come 1st serve basis. If you are the 1st to pay, you will get position 1. However, if someone else has already paid and secured that position, you will be allocated the next available position. Once a position is paid for, it will only be available again when the buyer cancels, which can be many months. So, if you are interested in a position, it is best to pay and secure it early on. For details on availability, please email us at [email protected]

Can I cancel anytime?

Yes, you can cancel anytime. All accounts are billed every month, so you will not be billed from the following month if you cancel timely (at least 3 days before billing). 

Do I need to be registered with Shutterturf to be featured on the blog?

Yes. Whether you are featured as a premium or standard listing on our blog, you need to have a Shuterturf account with at least 1 active listing. Also, please be advised that we do not provide external links (to your website, etc) all links for premium listings will point to your Shutterturf profile.
