I have been selling stuff online for a while now, so I know my way around the web. I know what works and what doesn’t. I know what to avoid.
To be honest, many people are looking for photos…
Sure, you can sell your photos offline. You can get them printed and framed nicely, then approach art galleries to display them. How many do you think you would sell in one gallery? How much time and work would it be trying to get your photos displayed in enough galleries to make any decent money? Quite a lot I would think.
If you had your photos available online, you could reach a LOT more people instantly.
One way you could do this is to submit your photos to stock libraries. One thing I definitely would NOT recommend is Get Paid Taking Pictures because that is a scam. So instead you could search on Google for various image stock libraries and submit your photos to them. However, this can be tough for a couple of reasons:
- The really good image stock libraries can be tough to get into.
- Many of the easier image stock libraries don’t pay much per photo.
Also, they are going to be taking their cut. Wouldn’t it be nice to actually remove the middleman and sell them on your own website? Do you realise how easy it is to start appearing in the search results, particularly Google Images, if you do your keyword research well enough?
It’s actually quite straightforward once you know how…
THREE Simple Steps to Selling Your Photos Online
Step 1: Build a Free Website
As I said above, there is no reason why you have to sell your photos through other websites. By having your own website, you can be in complete control of prices, etc.
Not only that, you can use your website to engage with your customers. They could sign up to your email list to be notified of new photos, which means repeat business and, therefore, more money for you.
One of the best places to build a free website is SiteRubix.com. It is really easy to set up, and you can choose from many different website layouts at the click of your mouse.
Are you inspired yet? I expect you are keen to get started and try out your new website right away. Well, the great thing is, a SiteRubix website is so quick and easy to set up (and free!) that you can do just that right now.
