Tips for Selling Prints On-Line
I recently updated my aerial photography web site to show potential customers my full and half day rates for drone aerial photography services. Previously, I suggested they call for a custom quote. With the new rates published I'm giving potential customers a heads up on what to expect for their aerial video and photography projects.
I'm expecting my aerial photography business to grow in 2017. The coming of warmer weather brings improved aerial photography opportunities.
In addition to aerial photography for real estate I also offer ground based photography for marketing both residential and commercial real estate. Call Jim Harrington at 781-244-5655 for superior photography services.
A couple of years back I signed up with Zenfolio to sell prints of my photography. Sales have been sporadic, but profit from these photo sales has covered the hosting cost of $100.00 per year.
Now my account is up for renewal and photo sales are slow.
I need to drive more traffic to my Zen pages as well as widen the variety of images available. Driving more traffic to my pages is one of the reasons I'm starting this blog. I'll use it to add more links to my pages and share my experiences as a Zenfolio user.
Ironically, my main page here at Zenfolio is currently coming up in the number 4 slot for the generic search term "photos for sale" on Google. However, I presume most print buyers don't search for that simple term, they likely add a more specific word. "Boston Photos for Sale" might be a more common search string.
Unlike many other Zenfolio users, I'm not a wedding or event photographer. For this reason I don't have captive clients who'll be print prints. I depend on search engine traffic for sales. I shoot images to sell as stock and also to sell as prints.
