SquidGuild members have the opportunity to sell their content on the SquidGuild Network, a hub of partners and affiliated sites that specialize in the sale of 3d models. The value is really clear: publish once on TurboSquid and be automatically syndicated to other sites with no further work. You can opt out of any sites for any reason.
As a member of the SquidGuild network you will be expanding your product visibility and have specialist industry related teams working to sell your content. TurboSquid works closely with these partners to ensure your content is distributed into their system. All of this all happens without you having to lift a finger.
SquidGuild artists can choose to not distribute their content through one or all of the networks. The Dashboard shows your current options on the networks and will link to the SquidGuild Network page where you can choose to opt out of the network.
Sales through the network will be displayed in the Reports section, alongside any TurboSquid.com sales. In the same way, your payments from the network sites will also be incorporated into your regular TurboSquid payments.
Besides staying opted-in, artists do not need to do anything to push their content to the network sites. That will all be done automatically, in some cases filtering which content is distributed
The actual product content is not distributed to network partners. All product content is only on TurboSquid servers. Only product description and thumbnails are pushed to the network partner.
SquidGuild Network Partners
The SquidGuild Network is rolling out with our Japanese network partner, amanaimages. This partnership will open up the opportunity for members of the SquidGuild Network to distribute their 3D models to the rich but largely untapped market in Asia.
Soon the network will include Falling Pixel and Exchange3D. For now, artists can publish on those other sites manually and still get paid for all sales through TurboSquid in a single payment starting with payments made in July 2011.
