Shutterstock Deal Gives You Free Images for Facebook Ads

Facebook has been actively courting small businesses  for some time now. And three new features in particular should appeal to smaller companies with limited resources.
First, Facebook and Shutterstock have announced a deal  that will give advertisers free access to Shutterstock’s huge library of images for use in their Facebook ads. This feature will be introduced over the next few weeks.
On the official Shutterstock Blog, Vice President David Fraga explained how the free images for Facebook ads feature will work:
“Shutterstock will be integrated directly into the Facebook ad creation tool, where advertisers will be able to test multiple images — including their own photos, visuals from their previous ads, and professional stock images from Shutterstock — across Facebook’s mobile and desktop advertising products.”
The screenshot shows how you chose images for ads, right from within Facebook.
The new arrangement will mean the most to smaller companies without the budget to hire big marketing firms.
Of course, you can still choose your own images for Facebook ads. It’s just now you will have an additional option built right in.
In a post on the official Facebook for Business blog, the company introduced two other  feature improvements.
