Get Paid for your Flickr Photos

Photo consumers are now browsing Flickr and contacting photographers and offering to pay usage fees. The amounts might not be huge, which is probably one of the reasons that the sales aren’t making headlines, but they are being handed over at the end of email offers and modest negotiations.

I noticed a discussion of this titled: How to Get Paid for your Flickr Photos over at Photopreneur.

Marketing the Flickr Way
But to increase the chances of making a sale, you have to market. Like anywhere, it’s not enough to put your goods on offer — however good your photos might be — and hope that photography-lovers with bucketloads of money spot them. You have to let people know they’re there.

On Flickr, that doesn’t mean spending vast sums on pay-per-click advertising.

It means investing time in networking.
