    I've got a friend who's interested in selling their photos on their website but they don't know if it's worth it etc. He's no idea how many he'd actually sell. So.. if it's not rude to ask ;) How many photos do you guys with galleries and "buy this photo" buttons sell? Are we talking 4-5 a year, or lots lots more? :)

    Any other advice you can give would be great to. :hug::

    We sell a few every now and then, but don't have a proper online shop. I'd be interested if anyone else has results, and how! Rob

    One piece of advice I would give is only display small or watermarked images on your site so they cant be stolen.

    I get some chatter through my site, but my sales are mainly in person, at arts festivals. :)
