Are You looking for Where to Sell Your Photos? Do You Need Help Selling Your Photography and Artwork? You Can Sell Your Photos and Artwork on the Pictures With Passion Website!

Welcome to the blog for the Pictures With Passion Website. We are glad to say that most of the kinks are out of the website and we have had our first sale! Recently we had our first photographer post some of her work and that was the first milestone. We have now reached the second milestone of having a sale. What will be the next milestone? What do you want out of the website? I am going to advertise the website in the next few days with hoping to get more photographers and artist on board and some sales as well.

If you are looking for a place to sell your artwork and photography then you are in the right place. We are looking for you and hoping you will jump on board with us. Pictures With Passion was started so that the photographer that no one knows can have a shot at selling their artwork. Maybe you draw and would like to sell your artwork on the site. You know, some artist are “found” that way. Just scan your drawings and upload them as a jpg, or png, then price them to sell. Right now, people are looking for doodle art for websites, short books, and they will hire the artist for more work later. Maybe you want to sell a group of pictures that tell a story. Those opportunities for photographers and artists are why Pictures With Passion came to be.

Pictures With Passion was thought up by my niece, which after I designed and got the website up and running, has still not uploaded any pictures. But, as I explained to her and now explain to you, the Pictures With Passion website is a chance for the community of photographers to help each other make money. I take a percentage of the sales and use that to market the website URL That marketing brings in more sales and more members for a the community to help bare the burden of getting sales.

Looking to market just your pictures? Create and share links to your storefront. Vendors can have a profile that helps them market and sell not only their work but themselves. In marketing any product, it comes around to how well you can sell yourself. Here on Pictures With Passion you have that shot. The best thing about doing it here, your artwork is right there so your portfolio will show more of your work and be less burdened by your flaws. So join the tribe here at Pictures With Passion and learn as we go to market your work and yourself as well.

Where do I start you ask? I am looking ways to share your artwork on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more, I am trying to add share links so that you can share links from your profile on Pictures With Passion to your profile on your social media accounts. That is part of marketing as over time I will explain. Just about all job seekers and entrepreneurs have to have social media to make it these days. More on that in the next post. Everyone have a blessed week and I will try to post again soon the results of the marketing of the website. If you have any ideas to help me help you make sales please comment below!

Making Site Changes For The Next Few Days

I apologize for all the layout pages and the site being down. The platform that I developed this site from, WordPress, has made changes and I am trying to keep up. With the new updates some features needed coding changes and so on.

I have fixed the New Password link so you can get into your accounts without me have to personally send you an login password. The Vendor Dashboard can only be viewed if you are logged in. In the last two days there has been almost 500 visitors to the website and sadly it was down much of that time. I will work on, later today, getting new directions up on the blog here to tell how to work the website. I added Social Media links to the website. You can click on them and share a message to your accounts and that will add a link back to the website on your social media account and help you spread the word about your work.

Again I can’t thank all of you enough for your patience as I work the bugs out of the website. I admit that I made mistakes and I have things to learn about working this platform. With that said I will continue to keep my head in the books and strive to keep the website up and running correctly. To be honest I can’t check that all the features work without having to login with another account. So any flaws found you can report to me and I will get on them. All of you have a blessed weekend and I will be back later.

The Pictures With Passion Website has a new look!

I have changed things around and made the website ready for the public. I noticed somethings were not working so I fixed them. I apologize for them not working before. I can’t take screen shots from this computer so I can’t show the steps for selling pictures. Truly that has not changed. Just go to Shop Settings and follow the rest of the instructions in the former blog post. You just don’t have the Seller/Vendor dashboard on the front page.

While I hope that you make a lot of money selling your pictures, I mostly pray that you have fun and use this site to display your talent. You can reference your pictures on this site and use it in your portfolio for jobs, school, whatever you want. You have permission to print business cards and promote your work on this site as well.

As of right now I have only made one purchase on the site to make sure the PayPal works and everything is good to go. I will do my best to post and announce when we have our first true sale that is not my picture or me testing the site. Have a blessed week both you and yours!!
