Making the move to selling your photos online is easier than you might think. Before you take the plunge, ask yourself a few basic questions:
With billions of photos uploaded to the internet every day, having a niche can give you a strong platform on which to build a business, whether it’s full time or just going in the background. Are you a street photographer who wants to sell art prints? Do you want to break into family and school portraiture? Are weddings and events calling your name? Whatever your passion, narrowing it down to something you can market is key to successful selling.
This one may seem like a no-brainer, but really focusing on who you want to market to can also help build your photo selling business. Friends and family are a great place to start, but really understanding who’s in the market for your landscapes, portraits, or abstract avant-garde photo compositions will help you a lot in the long run. Be ready to hunt down referrals and power your own word-of-mouth marketing if you want to go pro.
Some photographers are hands-on all the way from shooting to shipping. Others prefer a more hands-off approach, letting the experts at the print shop make sure everything is in order. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, make sure you have a website that lets you control the things you want to, and relax about the things you don’t.
