If you are a designer you should be aware of Lootback. You see, like any other craftsman, a designer also needs the tools of the trade. You cannot work without your tools like images, videos, audios, templates, etc. And designers will need such stock files in bulk.
Lootback is there to help you. Lootback serves two main advantages to designers. One – It saves their searching time by centralizing things. Two – It helps them get stock files at heavy discounts.
Here is how the system works.
Unique Search Engine
Lootback has developed a unique search engine which lets you search for stock files from many different websites right from a single place. They have partnerships with some very big names of the stock industry such as iStock, Shutterstock, Depositphotos, Thinkstock, Themeforest, etc.
So when anyone uses their search bar to search for anything, Lootback will display them a list of results from all these partner websites. Not only will this save you on time but will also help you in another way.
It happens sometimes that you liked and purchased a stock file and then discovered later that the same file was being sold on another stock file website at a much cheaper price.
Because Lootback lets you search for multiple files from multiple sites from the same place, this risk is minimized.
Lootback offers two steps how you can avail discounts on stock files. Since they discount the price two fold therefore the discount offered by them is usually higher than what you will find elsewhere.
Firstly when you like and click on a stock file you will be taken to the download page of the partner website where the file is hosted. You will also see a window which will display the discount coupon.
When I searched for the term “physics” on Lootback I got results from many different websites. I clicked on one and I was taken on the host site which in this case was iStock. I was also displayed the coupon code window.
The image below shows what I mean.
When I will enter the code “LOOTBACK10″ I will get 10% off on my purchase. Then when I have completed my purchase, a few days later, I will again get 8% of my money back as cash back into my PayPal account.
The workings behind this are simple. Their partner websites give them a commission whenever somebody uses Lootback and makes the purchase through it. Lootback then divides the commission between the customer and themselves resulting in cash back into the customer’s account.
It is somewhat akin to the famous Amazon affiliate program. Amazon gives publishers i.e. site owners a commission whenever they send them customers. But the difference here is that those publishers keep the commission for themselves while here Lootback is sharing a percentage of that money back with the customers.
