Sell your photos online to sites that are the same niche as your photos. This will increase your photos sale-ability.
– Upload, upload, and upload. When you are selling your photos online you want to upload as many as you can to as many stock photography websites as possible to get the best income results. But make sure that you read their payment requirements before submission to make sure that it is worth your while to post your photos there.
– Use your best judgment concerning your photos. Always try to submit photos that are in your opinion of the best quality. By the end of the day you are most certainly going to attract the eyes of someone out there in the online world to buy your photos by using your best judgment.
– Don’t get sued. If you fail to get permission from people in your photos when you sell photography online you can get sued by them for more than what you will be paid for by the site. Write up a release form and have them sign it before you submit any of your photos that have them in the pictures. Selling photo online can be a great source of income but if you got sued for the photos you sell, you are most likely to loose it all.
– Keywords. Keywords are a great method to use when selling your photographs online because these keyword phrases will assist in directing your searchers to your photos from the search engines and websites online.
