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.
