Over the last two decades, the internet has dramatically changed the way photographers market their businesses and reach potential clients. Because of the web, it's easier than ever before to make your work available to everyone in the world. This has helped numerous photographers increase their brand's presence, sales—and, importantly, helped with the passion many photographers have to share their best art with others.
At the same time, the web has become increasingly noisy. The good content is mixed with the bad, and the "content explosion" means that a lot of photographers have to fight to get exposure for the work they've worked hard to create. Photographers end up paying for ads, spamming their friends, and other suboptimal techniques to share their work.
Today we're announcing an attempt to help photographers share their brand and work with others, and we're calling them featured blog posts. Basically, you'll submit one of your blog posts, photo stories, or other photo related content to us, and we'll feature it on our site. We'll credit you and your site, thereby hopefully giving your work a bit more exposure and helping to bump your site's search ranking! It's free, and I'm very excited to see the interesting content that we'll help promote. Oh, and it doesn't need to be strictly prism/Fractals related content, but—sure, bonus points if it is. 🙂
I think a lot about the photographic community and what could have helped me when I was trying to turn my photography hobby into something more closely resembling a career. I'm hoping that this speaks to a chord that all photographers feel—so if it does—great! Our site gets a lot of traffic, so it'd be nice to be able to tunnel that into something that could give back to the community. With that said, I would love to hear other suggestions on other ideas and/or ways we can help.
Please send the content you'd like featured to my email in the following format:
- TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
- SUBJECT: Featured blog post submission.
- BODY: Either a link to your existing blog post with the relevant content, OR a zip file including images AND a text file including a story or relevant details about the images.
- Please also provide social links that you'd like us to link back to. Those could be your Facebook/Instagram page, website, etc.
- Please make sure the images you include are AT LEAST 2880px wide.
We'll do our best to get back to you! If all goes well we'll feature your work on our site.
Thanks for reading! I'm excited to see how this experiment plays out.
