Scott Wyden Kivowitz is a New Jersey Photographer and the Community & Blog Wrangler at Photocrati, NextGEN Gallery and the Photographers SEO Community, teaching other photographers on how to increase business with their website.
These days, websites are so important for photography businesses. They can be used as a marketing tools, a sales tool and even an accounting tool if so desired.
WordPress is the most popular website platform among the industry, and most industries for that matter. After picking from WordPress photography themes, many photographers are looking for advice on what to do or where to go next. With WordPress being such a flexible platform for websites, it is understandable that someone can be overwhelmed at first.
This is where a new eBook comes into the picture. (pun intended) 10 Tips To Supercharge Your Photography Website contains advice from ten photographers who have done the legwork of figuring out some secrets to website success.
For example, Jamie Swanson of The Modern Tog talks about local marketing and SEO by using a website. Justin Balog, of HOSSedia, talks about using your blog as an education resource to attract clients. Brian Matiash, of onOne Software, talks about using social media to further promote your work.

Even with the three examples and the tips from seven photographers, Photocrati has added their own advice to the mix.
“Choosing a WordPress theme is very personal, even when choosing for a business. As photographers, we are visual people and tend to lean towards more visual themes, which completely makes sense. Of course, you can pick between free and premium (paid) themes, but premium themes provide a lot of advantages.”
So as you can see there is a lot to be learned in the ebook. Did I mention it's free?
Aaron Hockley is a photographer (and speaker) in Vancouver, Washington. He downloaded a copy of the photography website eBook and sent me an email saying:
“Great tips for photographers of all sorts – whether you shoot people, artwork, or landscapes, these website strategies will apply to your site.”
So with that, I urge you to visit the eBook page and download your free copy, because it's only a few clicks away.
