If you are a broker and you want to enlarge your portfolio, and you don’t have enough pictures to show on your site, you may appeal to the original site of the brand you’re selling. But there might be a problem with that. The great majority of brand yacht name manufacturers has the samples uploaded in Flash, which is making things difficult for you. I know from experience that the petty brokers have minimum experience with site design, and with stealing pictures as well. In certain countries, they steal from each other, more than from the original sites. Not once I met selling customers who doesn’t have their boat pictures taken, I mean professionally taken, showing everything interesting for a potential client. You hook your client with the pics. They may even be modified, I’ve already talked about this in a previous post. But let’s come back to the brokers.
If they have difficulties using Photoshop either (oh, I’ve seen color blind guys who can’t even erase a name on a digital photo, they didn’t “blend” colors to smooth the difference, they just used a “pen” with the default color in whatever program they have to upload the photos from camera, and that was it), it is better to run a search on the engine they use, specially for that brand. It’s impossible to not find an official dealer of that certain brand, who already made the job of extracting the pics, or even having them from the company directly, they being “official dealers”, right? For pricing and evaluating, yachtworld is a good reference. They can have good samples of the market prices at a certain moment. And also, a good broker has a page there for himself. It’s not cheap at all, but if you’re good, you can afford it. What is that “good” meaning, we’ll have to clarify in a future post. If there is anyone who didn’t understand what I’m talking about, I’m open with answers. I’m not sure I’m open with examples too, but let’s say I’m gonna help as much as I’m allowed. My examples are inspired from reality, and it’s not gentlemanly to give names, except for the proven crooks.
