Known as the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, this special month of fasting is practiced every year by Muslims worldwide. According to Wikipedia, the word Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ramida or ar-ramad, which means scorching heat or dryness. Ramadan is considered a period meant for inner reflection to improve spirituality and to practice the teachings of Islam.
As the month of Ramadan is fast approaching, we’re on the lookout for good content. Buyers are constantly evolving with the current seasonal trends or celebrations for marketing and advertising campaigns, purchases for clients, or for branding.
We know what you’re thinking – why submit these stock images and vectors now?
The truth is, lots of buyers tend to look for these sorts of content a month or two before the actual celebration, event, or festivity. So, it’s always better to submit your stock content one to three months earlier. It’s all about getting your content out there sooner than later.
Interested to know how you can earn more from your stock contributions? The key to earning more is simple: submit your stock content related to these celebratory events or festivities and pepper them with the right keywords so that they show up in a potential buyer’s search results.
Here are the trending keywords to use for your content:
From A Photography Perspective
Eid Mubarak is all about celebrating the end of Ramadan’s fast. If your artistic specialty is photographing food, try shooting different angles to create a more interesting atmosphere. For stock content themes with people in them, think ideal family moments, family fun, people praying or having spiritual worship, and enjoying festive food. Take a look at our examples below.
From A Vector Illustration Angle
On the topic of vector illustrations, try designing with your desired customer’s needs in mind – what would they be looking for?
What are the colors you should be using?
For Ramadan and Eid, shades of green and gold should be at the top of your color palette. That doesn’t mean you can’t add in other colors that match well with your color setting. Eid Mubarak or Aidilfitri is always about the colorful, celebratory vibes – as with any other religious festivity.
Next, what is the theme you’re going for?
Think food, invitation cards, greetings blended into stunning posters that can be used across print and online media. Submit your stock illustrations as vector EPS files for easy adjustments. Your customers will make a purchase based on the versatility of a single illustration, and if they can use it for both online and offline… they’ll definitely convert. They’ll come back for more of what you’ve got. They will want to explore more of your portfolio. Take all of these into account when you’re pouring your creativity into your designs.
