Hey everybody,

as the title suggests really.

I recently came accross this article
http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffbercovici/2014/03/07/this-photographer-made-15k-in-one-day-on-instagram/#6af3691d38cc

it's got me wondering a Little. I have a small port on the usual agents, but what if it would be possible to self sell a limited run of prints as the chap in the article done, WITHOUT Setting up your own Internet site?
That's how ebay popped in to my head - as it's possible there to set up a sale with a specific number of products available.
In my case, both mehtods would be difficult as most of my personal Image library is airplanes, and therefore covered in copyrighted designs and logos.

But, i'm sure someone out there has attempted such a Thing before - any experiences out there??

thanks
Ant

From what I've seen it's possible if you are already famous and have a large fan base.

im sadly 19000 followers short of the amount of followers the guy in the article has.

What about if the subject of your Images had a large fan base (not sure what i mean by that, but its an angle nonetheless)

Even if the subject is popular, that does not mean that your pics will pop up in searches. We are not all equal in the eyes of browsers. Perhaps there are people on this forum who were successful in driving traffic to their own online stores, but I am not there yet, so can't really comment.
