Here’s yet another thing you can sell online to make some money on the side – photos. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional photographer or just some ordinary person with a phone camera. With an ever-increasing number of high-tech and powerful yet easy-to-use cameras at our fingertips, it’s never been easier than now to capture high-quality photos wherever, whenever, and by whoever.
And on the demand side, things are looking very photogenic, too. With millions of online businesses, bloggers, social media influencers, and more looking to populate their websites and social media accounts with winning images, the demand for photos has never been greater than now.
In fact, there are a ton of places online just waiting to buy all of your stunning shots and snaps, from stock photo companies, creative agencies, to arts and crafts marketplaces. So, if you’ve got some quality photos just gathering dust in your phone memory or external hard drive or wherever, here are some of the best places to sell them online:
Now how much you’ll earn depends on the stock photo website you sell your images to. You could be earning royalties, commissions, or a set price for each photo. But if your photos prove extremely popular, and you get a ton of sales or downloads, then you’re on your way to earning a decent income each day – all passive.
But if you’re not too sure about handing over your photos to some stock photo agency, then why not build your own photo website and sell your photos there? It barely costs anything to start your own website – a couple of dollars a month and you’re good to go! Besides, with your own photo website, you can control how much you charge for your photos and who you sell them to. So if you know what you’re doing, you can definitely make more money doing the selling yourself rather than let some stock photo agency take care of the process.
