Assuming we are talking about selling to Parents. I have an online site (Smugmug) and yet in my market, (small town) it doesn't seem to generate a lot. I do have parents approach me, asking to buy my photos. I'm considering just using pbase as a shopping gallery, and having parents contact me directly, and I can order from Mpix (which I've been VERY pleased with). This gives me more control over my pricing, and I don't have to pay 15% on every sale to Mpix. Of course, I lose credit card sales, but that may not be an issue. Again, I realize markets are different, and in my case it's a small town. What has helped market my images more than anything is having the local paper publish my stuff. So does a combo pbase (where they can view pics) then contact me, make sense? Stick with smugmug? (or the like) Thoughts, suggestions, comments?
