I'm a photographer and I have some Photoshop skills, how can i monetize them? Ideas?
You can make money via fiverr.com & freelancer.com etc..
i know about fiverr and freelancer , but i posted my gigs and nobody bought. must make reviews for first? it's a strategy or something?
Get yourself a gallery site, easy with WordPress, launch a facebook and instagram account and build a following, get your name and skills out there. Take a look a stock photo sites also
definitely going into photo stock sites
register as contributor on these sites
Beside fivvr, freelancer you can try marketplace on BHW and other different type of forums as well you will be surprised on how much work you can get on forums as BHW.
Offer real life course in your Area. Just Post your announce in your local newspaper and communities. There are lots of people interested in learning photography and photoshop.
It helped me a lot.
Best of luck
@clarkcant That is really a good idea, may be it can be expanded as an online course as well.
I have a friend who got his start in IM by offering basic course on website development so it might worth a shot.
Exactly. With every course you make, people will also engage online and post there newest work on your site (if you have one) and refer potentially new costumers to you. Once you have enough follower you can push you online courses drastically
Register your account on
Post your service packages and promote on social media. Participate in contests also.
i never had luck with thoes sites :/
Hi Amy, I would suggest setting up a nice portfolio or small website, so you can showcase what you can do. That way people can see your work and it will be a lot easier to post or send the link to potential clients.
Offer to do headshots for actors or portraits for businesses. Theres good money in it.
Photographer? Dude you could make a killing!
Check it out.
I'm sure you have a network of people. Some of them are getting married, some want photos for their shitty music album. So you market these folk and provide the service. Since you're new, start cheap.
Maybe $30-$50 a shoot. Yeah the price sucks for you but that's not the point. You want to build a solid portfolio displaying your skils for more higher end clients.
After you make that portfolio, create a website and raise the price a little bit.
Hope this helps!
The above stuff is too good. Thank you all for this.
You have a skill, build up your portfolio and earnings will come to you
Hmm If you can find other photographers that need someone to help edit large batches of photos, usually they like photoshoppers with some photography background
use upwork to work as freelancer
if you need passive income, make stock photo and sell on stock photo markets. But it's not easy. photos must have a best quality
