In this post, I want to show you the steps to making money selling your photos online from home. Ever since the beginning of the internet, people have been looking for ways to utilize the Internet to make money. Whether it’s selling your photographs or some other product, never before has there been so many ways to do just that.
It is so much easier to do now than in the early days when people had to build their own websites by creating images, writing code, hosting their own website, creating content. Most of that stuff, Except the content, has now been made much simpler to accomplish.
Four Essential Ingredients
You want to sell your Photographs online and Perhaps you are interested in developing your own website to just that. Here are what I think are the four steps that are essential, that we need to do to build a website.
Step 1. You need to choose an interest. In your case, it’s photography. It’s your passion and you want to share it with the world. Perhaps you have many years experience and you want to share your expertise and help train others to take better pictures.
Step 2. You would need a website. Your website would be the foundation and the medium with which to promote your pics and your training
Step 3. Attract Traffic. You would need to learn how to draw traffic and visitors to your website. The focus would be on attracting FREE traffic to your site and, there are billions of people out there looking for stuff online every day.
Step 4. Earn Revenue. This is the best part. Once you have traffic and people coming to your site you can start earning revenue and there are lots of ways to do that online. Not only can you earn from your photos, you can also earn by promoting things like cameras and equipment through something called “Affiliate Marketing”
What is Affiliate Marketing?
What is “Affiliate Marketing,” you say? Many businesses on the Internet have what is called an Affiliate Program where you can sign up for free, collect an “Affiliate Code” or “Link”, which would be placed in your content, in the proper places, as you write training and review products associated with your niche.
When those who visit your website click on these “Links” they are taken to the website that sells the product and, If they purchase something from that particular site, you will earn a commission. Pretty cool eh? (Yes, I am Canadian).
Places like Amazon.com, Fujifilm, Nikon, Polaroid, and others have affiliate programs that would be great for a niche such as yours.
Of course, this is just an example but the essentials are the same for all websites. If you want to earn money on the Internet you must have an interest or passion, have a website and, attract traffic and visitors.
You’re probably saying, “I’ve been thinking that I would like to try this but, I don’t know the first thing about how to create a website let alone create training or??? and, my computer skills aren’t that great either. In fact, I have no idea where I would start”!!!
I Can Relate
That’s exactly where I had been almost 2 years ago. I had been laid up and not working and wondering if there was a way to make some kind of income on the internet. I had been 66 years old and didn’t hold out much hope of being able to work much longer especially with a bad back.
So I started a search and came across a platform of training that said they would teach me everything I needed to know in order to become successful whit a website of my own.
You may have come across some of these programs already and found some of them to be a little less than forthcoming with the truth. I thought so too. Their claims about the amount of money that could be made just seemed too good to be true.
Then I found Wealthy Affiliate
During my search, I found several reviews for an Internet Entrepreneurial training program called “Wealthy Affiliate”, also known as “Wealthy Affiliate University”. The reviews spoke of WA as being one of the best, and probably the best, place to learn everything about how to build a website and become a successful Online Entrepreneur. Click here for more information about Wealthy Affiliate.
And I have come to agree. WA offers website hosting, website themes, training in SEO (search engine optimization), support, video training as well as weekly “live” training seminars with a “Q” and “A” at the end of each seminar.
The first thing they will tell you is, that this is not a “get rich quick” program. WA is a training platform that it will take time and perseverance and dedication to the training to be successful.
