Free of any charges
Publish your profile, articles, images, and galleries on this website and get links to your website.
If you are selected and you have registered as a member you will have received the password to enter the protected pages where you can submit your profile, your articles and/or your pictures. After every submission a unique post will be created and published, free of any charges, on this site and several social pages which are connected with this website. This creates links back to your site and will slightly increase the amount of visitors.
Besides the member registration form there are 2 submission forms.
Price: FREE (only selected photographers)
What you get: Two links / submision from Photographersselection.org and other social sites to your website.
Limitation: The links are coming from one domain only and related social pages
Results: an increase of your website's credibility.
Price: $ 30 / month
Publish here and also on a network of websites and blogs related to your business with a subscription to work with professional SEO companies.
The basic plan is fine, however, when you want a huge increase of visitors to your site you can also publish your profile and/or article and/or your pictures on a network of websites, blogs and social pages related to the market of your choice. (the categories you choose on the forms to submit your images and articles)
How does it work?
All of the websites (approximately 7,000) connected in the network have a minimum of 10.000 visitors / month. Twenty positive articles written by you or the SEO companies are sent to these websites and they can accept or refuse your article. This is conforming with the rules of Google, Bing and Yahoo. These websites are allways looking for good content related to their visitors that they can publish. Do not expect that all websites will accept your article. There are 12 main categories and more than 50 subcategories. It is realistic to expect that your article will be published on 3 to 5 websites that are highly related to your business. However multiply this with 20 articles per month. This gives you between 60 to 100 highly related one-way backlinks per month of different high quality domains with a minimum of 10,000 visitors each.
So the chance for you to get noticed by someone in your market is very realistic, plus over a period of time this will create an unlimited amount of high related one way back links to your website and galleries. After a while the result will be that someone in your market who is surfing on the internet gets your website on his first page of his search engine. This work is done by professional marketing companies, and because we buy their services as a group, you pay only a fraction of the price. A subscription to this service costs only $30/month.
More details about this plan: Some questions and answers.
Note that you can cancel whenever you want.
Note: Because we buy it as a group, the SEO companies sees us as one client. You do not have to write any article yourself, go and make some pictures. You are a photographer. The articles the SEO people write are based upon your profile and images. However if you want to have full control about the content you have to write 20 articles yourself. 20 positive articles each month will always be published. For example, if you write 2 articles, the marketing writes additional 18. If you write 0 articles, they write 20, if you write 15, they will write 5 and so on.
Pro: Unlimited backlinks and a lot of visitors to your site.

Note about the services explained on this website.
This website only allows a small selection of professional photographers with impeccable skills to show their work. These are photographers of different niches, however all have outstanding quality. This website is not an agency. It is a group of individuals. All potential customers deal directly with you, the photographer, not with me. You retain all rights for your pictures. My only right is that I have the permission to present the picture with a link to your site. I hope that this is clear. I do not ask for any commission on your sales. The whole site is totally free of all charges. However, when you take advantage of the deals I make with marketing companies you pay a part of the total price because we buy it as a group, and I take 20% of the fee you pay for the work I do on your behalf. A subscription, which is optional, to make use of the tools provided by the marketing companies costs $30, I take $6 as a fee and $24 goes to the marketing companies.
With $30 a month you cannot buy these tools as an individual in the market place. However, when we buy in a group, for example with 600 photographers, we have a budget of $18.000/month. With this kind of budget you have many more options available. I love photography, so you can use everything, which is semi-automated for free. However, when you want me to work for you, I ask for a fee to cover my costs and an affordable share to pay the SEO companies I work with. Please note, I don’t do the SEO for you, professional SEO companies do it. My part of the work is only coordinating everything and searching for a good quality SEO for you. Your part is to make exceptional pictures and put them somewhere that somebody can see them and can buy them.
