This week is a little different. Instead of telling you what to do, I want you to tell me what to do. More specifically, I want you to feel free to ask me anything about marketing. And I will do my best to provide a clear answer.

We call this our Photo Marketing Q & A. It’s time for you – the readers – to steer the conversation.

I'm going to get into marketing my photos very soon. Even tho I'm a store manager for a major retail home improvement store, I find myself in a while different area. I knew I would, but my fear is that I'm not knowledgable enough yet. What's the best peice of advice you can give me on what to expect?

The best piece of advice I can give is that marketing involves a lot of trial and error. Your experience as a store manager may have shown you that there is not surefire way to succeed, and that different things work for different people or business. To help you get over your fear, I recommend spending some of your free time reading up on marketing. Look at blogs on marketing tips, join a few photography forums (like NYIP's public forum at, and ask around. Anyone can market themselves online, and with a little research, you will be just as prepared to do it as anyone else.

Any advice on business cards? With photos or without? 2 sided or tent fold?
