Setting up Shop – Planning

Well, I think I’ve done it. I think I have made the decision – I am going to sell framed prints of my images online!

I’ll admit, I am quite nervous, I will need to invest in a few things up front and the whole project might just be a total flop, but I also thought it would be a great opportunity to write about the process. At the moment, I am very much at the planning stage.

I need to think about:

  • the platform for the shop
  • how do I produce the printed photograph
  • where will I get the frames from
  • how will I package the finished product
  • how long will it take me to prepare an order
  • how will I post the finished product
  • how will I price the images
  • should I just offer one fixed size of print, or a range of options
  • how will I manage the accounts to make sure all relevant earnings etc. are declared
  • how will I market my shop so people actually know about it?

I am certain this is not a comprehensive list! Hopefully along with my photography I’ll be able to write about each of these as I come to them.

Will you come with me on this journey?
