Distribution & Monetization

Getting your content out to the widest possible audience is a key part of your organization’s mission. And monetizing your digital assets through licensing is a powerful way to create a recurring revenue stream to support your operations. It’s no longer enough, though, to simply put content online and hope that visitors will use or buy it. Instead, it’s crucial to actively promote your content, and to ensure that it reaches a worldwide audience.

What We Do

Gado Images works with leading media companies to distribute your content to creatives worldwide, and where appropriate, to monetize it through licensing. Our distribution network includes world-leading media company Getty Images, Sheet Music Plus (the world’s largest marketplace for sheet music), and the Internet Archive. Our partner archives’ images and films have appeared in media including CNN, The New York Times, People Magazine, Rolling Stone and Time Magazine, and have been used everywhere from the US and UK to India, Taiwan and South Korea. We monetize all types of collections, and can work with you to distribute your Public Domain and free content as well. If you already do licensing on a small scale, we can work alongside your existing process and give your content a new, global reach.

Getty Images

Getty Images is among the world’s leading creators and distributors of award-winning still imagery, video, music and multimedia products, as well as other forms of premium digital content. With its advanced search and image recognition technology, Getty Images serves business customers in more than 100 countries, and is the first place creative and media professionals turn to discover, purchase and manage images and other digital content.

Gado Images works closely with Getty Images to distribute and monetize our partners’ content. We have worked closely with Getty Images since 2013, and have tens of thousands of digital assets on Getty’s marketplace.

Getty Images’ worldwide reach allows us to distribute your content to a global audience, and their dedicated network of editors, image researchers, and salespeople ensures that your collections reach their full revenue potential.

Sheet Music Plus

Sheet Music Plus is the world’s largest marketplace for digital and print sheet music. With more than 1 million titles in their marketplace, Sheet Music Plus is the go-to sheet music source for musicians, choirs, singers and other performers.

Gado Images works with Sheet Music Plus to monetize and distribute our partner archives’ sheet music assets. Through Sheet Music Plus, Gado Images has sold our partners’ digital sheet music scores to thousands of practicing musicians, creating valuable revenue streams and ensuring that historic music continues to be actively performed.

Internet Archive

With a mission of providing “universal access to all knowledge”, the Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides free public access to more than 3 million books, 200,000 audio recordings, and nearly 1 million images.

Gado Images works closely with the Internet Archive to distribute our partners’ public domain and free content. Even if your organization is not able to monetize its assets, we can work with you to distribute your public domain and free content to a global audience through the Internet Archive, your own web systems, and other channels.
