At Firmwater we continuously strive to enhance customer experience. In the spirit of ‘Kaizen’ the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement, we have explored new ways to revamp our marketing approach. In our quest to kick it up a notch we came across Burst.

Most of our customers are entrepreneurs that are building a strong business from the ground up. We know how important online presence and branding is to drive sales, especially for e-commerce sites. That is why we want to share how Burst – a Shopify value-add feature can improve your online store, website, blog or Social Media post.

What is Burst?

BURST is a stock photo platform with high-quality images that are available free of charge under the Creative Commons Zero license. You can use them without having to credit the photographer or the platform (but feel free to do so if you wish). The site encourages you to edit any images to your liking. You can crop them to your preferred size and add text or filters with your preferred photo editor.

Together with other Shopify tools such as the drag-and-drop store builder, website editor, image resizer, and even their business card builder you can now make the most of your Shopify experience.

You may think that there are other sites out there that are offering stock photos for free, but we believe Burst was built with the e-commerce entrepreneur in mind. You notice this targeted approach when browsing through the themed collections. Brand consistency is an important part of a premium marketing approach. A uniform look across all your channels characterizes your business as more reliable and improves brand recognition.

Let’s get started!

Now that you know where to find great images for free, it is up to you to take advantage of them. Let your creativity flow and improve the look and feel of your online store.
