As an experienced photographer, I can tell you firsthand that making money with your content online is never one-size-fits-all. Figuring out where to start can be one of the hardest challenges. But as modern-day creators, we are adamant about monetizing our talents, and in this blog post, I am going to tell you one of the newest ways of doing so.
If you’ve been active in the stock content sphere, then you have probably heard of selling your photos on Wirestock. The platform offers one-door access to the world’s largest stock content marketplaces, helping creators sell their content easier than ever before. However, this is not a Wirestock platform review. In this article, I am going to talk about the platform’s newest feature—the Wirestock personal shop.
How do you get a Wirestock personal shop?
Wirestock provides all its users with a free built-in portfolio designed for creators to flaunt their best work. And while this is great, the personal shop takes things one step further; you can actually sell the content you are showcasing.
Essentially, the Wirestock personal shop is an upgrade to a regular portfolio. It allows creators to sell photo prints, collections, and digital licenses with complete price control and zero commission. Another cool feature is the ability to have your shop SEO optimized, making it both client-friendly and search engine-friendly at the same time.
How does the Wirestock Personal Shop compete in the market?
As stated above, what’s neat about the Wirestock personal shop is that it comes with zero commission. This means that, as an artist, you are going to be able to make 100% of all your sales. It’s even better when you count in the additional money you’ll be making through the platform’s primary feature; one-door access to marketplaces like Shutterstock, Getty, Adobe, Alamy, and many more.
Owning a Wirestock personal shop comes with zero commission, meaning that you will be pocketing 100% of the sales you make. Not to mention, that the shop is an add-on to Wirestock’s primary features, meaning that you will be able to earn more by combining direct sales with those made by being featured on marketplaces.
Who can use the Wirestock Personal Shop?
The Wire-shop has recently been included in the platform’s Premium Plan. Without being subscribed, you can only use the portfolio version of the shop, meaning only showcasing your work, and sharing your link via social media pages. But with the Wirestock Premium Plan, you get all the functions of the shop on top of other Premium perks like more easy submissions, faster review and support, and the ability to download files with metadata up to 500GB.
Share your shop link on socials
In our digital age, you need to keep up your social media presence and promote your work whenever you have the chance. Sharing your Wirestock shop link with your friends, clients, and followers is guaranteed to take you one step closer to earning more. Simply copy the personal link the shop provides you with and share it across all the platforms you use.
Write a bio for your shop
And finally, letting your personality seep into your work is another way to ensure a distinctive presence. Wirestock’s personal shop has a bio section, which I highly encourage taking advantage of. Write something short and sweet about yourself, your working style, and let clients get to know you more.
