Lesson Info

Selling Your Prints in Person

So where are the best place to sell these prints will immediately. The very first physical spot to sell them is a local market place. A lot of places around the world will have small setups like swap meets and fairs and art exhibits and stuff like that. Where you can kinda go and set up a booth and sell your prints there. And the cool thing about that is that you can really target your area. Like I said if you're trying to sell near a beach and sell a lot of beachy photos, you might look up a festival or an art walk or a block party where you can set up a booth and sell your photos. The pluses to this is that you actually interact with people and you'll get to be able to sell and see people buy your images and have have the excitement there in front of you. It's like a really fun market place to do it. And something I highly recommend you do. The downside is that you can't really, you can't really uh sell it quickly. You kind of have to go through the process set up and wait for a day.

You have to sometimes get business permits for certain fares. You have to apply. Sometimes you have to pay for the space so it's a lot of time and money to invest and where you may or may not sell a decent amount of products. I've seen places where they'll just put up a tent, put up all the prints inside and then you'll just take orders and you'll go make them that way you're not putting in extra money to stuff that you may not celery or you can sell the priest is on the walls for a little bit extra. That's a really fun way to sell your prints and you get to be outside and interacting with people. The next place I've seen a lot of people selling is actually local coffee shops. I've seen a lot of mom and pop stores, mom and pop coffee shops where if you go in, you get to know the owners, you talk to them and you ask them if you can put your photography on their walls. Sometimes they'll let you do it and they'll let you put little prices in the corner. A lot of coffee shops in Los Angeles and in bigger cities will sponsor different photographers for like a month. If you give them a cut of the, of the takeaway or you pay them a little bit to put up your photos, you're gonna exposure every day every day every day. You can have an opening night. Um, it's a really cool way to sort of find a way to locally sell your prince. And I think if you're in a small city or a small town and you can partner up with a coffee shop like that and create a theme that looks really nice in the coffee shop. I think it's a really good way to not only learn about getting new clients, but also learn about selling prints in a live spot. I think it'd be really fun to do. And I've done it a couple times before, back when I was starting out and I've always had really great experiences with it. But I did know the coffee shop owners so see if you could talk to local shops, it doesn't have to be a coffee shop. It could be anything that's mom and pop on that is willing to put up your work.
