Started at the Biz Marketing 54, the Ezine Acts Photography is a long article to help you use your camera to generate extra income, even during the recession hard economical situations. All you'll need is a good camera and camcorder and brain and motivation to use the tips included on the two pages and other linked pages to do just that… generate income offline and online too.
The second part of the article is just below this preamble, if you wanted to continue from the Wise Biz 54 smoothly. But, the insights here at this section of the Ezine Acts Photography is good for you to see how to get it online.
The process involves photography passion to use, if photographing is your hobby, or profession. The shooting pictures, or videos, as work, or hobby could easily be developed to engage doing one of the professions explained on the Ezine Act's Photography page to make your life more better.
For example, from only this passion, you could be a professional freelance photographer and find freelance photography vacancies in your area, as explained on the article and at the Ezine Acts Freelance Photography, or build that profession on a website using your knowledge about the topic to generate income from it.
Whether you take the first approach, or the second, the income potentiality is amazing. The very important question is...
If it is, then you have a rendezvous at the Ezine Acts Photography page to read the guidelines and understand every step you should take to do more than just shooting pictures. You'll absolutely learn how to use your camera to earn extra income from a small business you work at home and succeed.
Start by the guidelines provided on the first part of the article at the first link above and then read the continuation of the Ezine Acts Photography article:
On the right hand side of this coupon, have your business name, address and telephone number, plus a quick outline of the different kinds of photography work you handle, and perhaps a business slogan such as "Satisfaction Guaranteed or You Don't Pay."
To add a little bit of class to this coupon, take the basic outline of this idea over to an instant print shop. Tell them what you want; show them your outline; and have them typeset everything.
Then put a fancy border around the whole coup on and have it printed on colored paper. The best color of paper is a "dollar bill" shade of green.
If you want to give it even more class, you could have it printed on green, lightweight card stock. You'll want to divide the "information" side o f this coupon from the "business card" side with a dotted line and perforations.
If you layout this coupon properly, you should be able to get six of them on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper or card stock. This means the printer can print and cut 6,000 of them for about the same cost as printing 1,000 circulars or flyers.
On your printing, shop around for the best deal, but in the end, it shouldn't cost you more than about $60 for all 6,000 coupons which will come from those 1,000 sheets of paper or card stock.
Now, when you pursue your photography passion and take a person's picture, regardless of whether it's an "in-store" set-up, out on the golf course, or along the street, give your customers your coupon-receipts.
Then tell them their prints will be ready in a couple of days. They fill in the information part of the coupon and give it back to you, retaining your "business card" portion of it.
When the prints are ready, you can phone the customer and remind him - volunteer to deliver and collect; send them through mail with a bill; or make arrangements with a store to take care of them until the people call for them and pay at that time.
Most stores, golf courses, bowling centers, and other retail merchants will be glad to handle this part of it for you, because it brings the customers back into the places of business, and provides another sales opportunity for them.
By all means, while you carry on your photography passion, be sure to include an advertising circular with each set of pictures you deliver. Read more at the Ezine Acts Advertising, after you have completed the Ezine Acts Photography page.
This circular should explain how the customer can get more prints, how he can get enlargements of his favorites, and details relating to all the other photography services you offer.
Back to the original "in-store" picture taking set-up during evening shopping hours and on weekends for extra income. You can call attention to your "in-store" set-up and bring in more business with a few merchandising promotional ideas.
In the following paragraphs on the Ezine Acts Photography we give the highlights of a few ideas about photography that have worked well so many times.
However, you should keep your eyes open to observe additional promotional ideas that could be adapted to fit your new photography business. See iWatchBesTV.com.
Dress a helper in a clown suit, and take pictures of the kids on his lap or with his arm around the kids. Put a sandwich advertising board on a helper and let him stroll through the shopping center advertising the fact that you're in Kiddie Clothing store taking pictures.
Promote a "Baby of the Year" contest where you take pictures of babies, display the pictures on a "show board" and offer $100 cash plus a merchandise prize in a big drawing at the end of the year.
Set up a booth in the mall and promote "Instant Snapshots." Be a Roving Photographer and take candid shots of shoppers and promote a "Shopper of the Year" contest.
Work with a clown and have him "attach himself" to the kids, and ask if they'd like to have their pictures taken with him. This is absolutely the funniest tip of the Ezine Acts Photography, but its productive too.
Build an inexpensive and portable set, such as an air plane, a race car, bucking bronco, hand-shaking scene with a famous person or "balloon figures" and take pictures of people standing in or on these sets.
Get out to the golf course and take pictures of the golfers teeing off. Get over to the bowling centers and take candid shots of the bowlers in action. You see, the guidance is very clear through the Ezine Acts Photography.
Do the same thing wherever there's a sports event taking place. Pursue your photography passion. Be on the spot and ready whenever there's an opportunity to take team pictures.
You might follow, or hire someone else to follow a Little League team through its season, take candid and action shots. Your clients will love the way you run your photography business.
You then arrange the best of these pictures in a photo album with the team's name and year on the front. You should be able to sell one of these albums to each member of the team.
There's also the idea of "just strolling through the park" on a Sunday afternoon. You take candid and interesting pictures of couples, children and people in general spending time with their relatives.
Keep tabs on the announcements of new births. Send advertising literature to the new mothers, and follow up with phone calls efforts to set up photography sessions.
Keep tabs on the engagement notices in the weekend papers. Send your sales literature to the brides-to-be, and follow up with phone call efforts to take the wedding pictures. See weddings photography at the linked pages on the Ezine Acts Photography below.
Set up household and business photo inventory service. With this idea, you contact the insurance companies and determine if they will approve and endorse photographs you take of their policy holders' household, personal and business property in loss claims.
Most will, and from there working either with the help of an insurance agent, the agency itself, or on your own, contact owners of property and sell them on the idea of your taking pictures of the household goods they have insured.
You take pictures - a pictorial inventory of everything they're claiming or would like to claim on an insurance policy - and then identify the pictures, giving one set to the property owner and the other set to his insurance agent or company.
Picture inventories of household and personal property is still a new thing, but everywhere it's been introduced, it's definitely proven to be a super money-maker for the people willing to get out and hustle.
If this idea arouses your interest, you might want to check into a going franchise operation that gives you a complete business manual, operations guidebook, and ongoing consulting services: Photographic Inventory, PO Box 4046, Morgantown, WV 26505

Once you decide that using your camera to generate extra income is what you're going to do, get out and use your camera, start taking pictures, and allow yourself the opportunity to build your business, as explained on the Ezine Acts Photography.
Give yourself the chance, and you'll quickly beg in to think of hundreds of ideas for taking pictures, merchandising ideas for promoting your services, and sales angles for increasing your profits.
The important thing is to get started, regardless of how small you start, and begin chasing in on an idea that's still in its infancy. This is an idea that can produce new concepts for profit every day of the weak, as you learn from the Ezine Acts Photography. An idea that can be fun, as well as financially rewarding for you!
