Selling photos online is a kind of business, so every industry has its pros and cons.
Before starting a business like this, I would recommend you to have a look at the pros and cons of selling photos online, including feet pictures.
Pros to sell feet pictures (Or any kinds)
There are many pros of selling photos online, but I tried to cover the most common and prominent benefits of online photo selling business.
When you capture your photos, you can see yourself how you look. You can feel what needs to improve your personality.
So capturing your selfies, again and again, makes you more confident.
Especially when you shoot your feet pictures, you become more hygienic, neat, and clean.
Photography is a leading industry in the digital world. Every SaaS company, as well as other leading companies, are always in need of photographs for their marketing campaign.
If your photos fill their needs, you can build a passive income funnel.
Selling feet pictures is another case. Some people are foot fetish, and some just love feet pictures to decorate on their bedroom walls.
They are all willing to pay you $10-$50 for your single feet picture.
Work from home:
Most of the females prefer to work from home, so this kind of business is best for them.
You can make your home as a studio to shoot your portrait, and run your photo selling business by working from home.
Cons to sell feet pictures
You can sell feet pictures all over the world, but it has some drawbacks. If you can overcome it, you can dominate this industry.
Requires beautiful feet:
No matter what your intensity is to sell feet pictures, you must need gorgeous feet.
It’s a showbiz industry, so if you don’t have beautiful feet, then why would the business owner be interested in endorsing you to represent their products.
Possibilities to be scammed:
There are so many foot fetishists who can take your photos without paying you, so I recommend you to be a professional and always interact with professionals like marketers or business owners.
Restricted for some countries:
Some countries, especially Islamic countries, condemn the showbiz industry. So if you are in an Islamic state, then you may have the restriction, but still, as long as it is modest, you can run this business internationally, and 100% legally.
Five Tips to Sell Feet Pictures
Selling feet picture is safe as long as you can keep it safe. If you think of doing it for fun, then no tips and suggestions are required, carry on as you want. But, if you’re going to do real business by selling your photographs, then in this section you will find some useful tips.
1) Take care of yourself:
It doesn’t matter who you are, either male or female, you have to take care of yourself to create an impactful image for this industry. In this case, females are always in by default mood. They keep themself fit and tidy.
Males should think of themself as a model and always keep themself fit and good looking from the start.
Develop your dressing sense and always have a good haircut that fits your personality.
To sell feet pictures, females should pedicure regularly to keep their feet beautiful.
2) Know who your customers are:
Not everyone is going to buy your pictures, so you have to figure out who your customers are.
If you try to sell feet pictures to the wristwatch company, then it will not work. You should present the right offer in front of the right customers.
Other than you can target a group of customers and ask them for their requirements.
Divide your customers into various sectors like corporate level customers,
marketing agencies, ad agencies, small companies, stock libraries, and more.
To narrow down your target customers, first, decide what your goal of business is.
Where do you see yourself in the next few years, I mean do you want to run an agency, or you want to carry on your freelance photography business.
Based on the resources and the capabilities you have, target a particular group of customers.
If you have beautiful feet, then you can target foot fetish(last option), shoe companies, jewelry companies, beauty salon, beauty products (like nail polish), and more.
Similarly, if you are a traveler, then you can target different hotels, event managers, amusement parks, travel agencies, transport companies, and more.
3) Be the best version of yourself:
You are the model of your targeted customers, so always be the best version of yourself.
Never underestimate the size of the business you are targeting because all you need in this industry is exposures of your images as much as possible.
Always be nice to all of your customers.
When you communicate physically live with your customers, they can see your body language, can hear your tone of voice; overall, they can feel your intensity.
But, when you communicate online via text chat, they can only see your writing, so improve your writing skills to communicate in a better way.
Good writing instantly gets you accepted in your proposals and leaves a good impression about you.
4) Avoid feet fetish:
I don’t know why people like feet, but yeah selling feet pictures is a million-dollar industry just like the porn industry.
Although different people use feet pictures differently, as I mentioned in the previous section, the feet fetish is some kind of extravagant.
It’s entirely your choice whether you want to deal with feet fetish or not.
I recommend you to avoid those people if you are a modest girl and prefer modesty, because they may ask you the pictures of the other parts of your body.
5) Always Learn what works:
Now, you have a complete business mindset, so you have to learn what works and what doesn’t in your industry.
Gradually do a little research about market trends. Know what is the current situation of the world, and how you can capture the best moments that click the emotions of your target audience.
Learn some digital marketing skills and how to convince someone.
Always be in the know of your customers’ needs and try to give your 100% whatever you offer.
