Use of PhotoShelter as Contact Point

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from PhotoShelter.com in which a message from a man, whom I “met” through Flickr, was enclosed. I was wondering why he could not find my e-mail address and I discovered that I had hidden my e-mail address (slightly modified so that the sender has to correct) under the text link of “E-Mail.” Today I’ve found that I could embed the contact URL for myself at PhotoShelter on my contact page on my website.

If you know enough javascript, you might find a way to modify the script on the page, but I just took the URL called up by the javascript under the contact photographer link on my PS homepage.

Those of you who don’t have a contact form on their website might use this PS route. It might increase the chance of your getting contacted. The response is very fast.

Look at my Contact page in which I added the linked URL to Photoshelter.:

I also updated my PS profile with the contact form included.
Please note it is possible to include your current location info from Lightstalkers.org and underneath that, your form contact. Have a look at my profile:

Today, I received a check from the man who contacted me on Tuesday morning by the form through Photoshelter first and subsequently called me on the phone. It was the first contribution I’ve ever received solely from the Internet exposure.

This was the first time my photos and comments at my Flickr account brought about a financial gain. It was also interesting that he used the PhotoShelter form on my PS Public Home Page although he could have used a Flickr mail which he had used to contact me in the first place. I might add that he also visited my LS profile according to my stats.

That’s very interesting, Tomoko. I’ll probably query you stuff about PS sometime later as I just made myself a member intending to sell photos through it. But before I embark fully on PS marketing, I’ll have to register my images with the US Copyright office and I’m right now in the middle of that process.

Max, I’m leaving on Tuesday, the 19th for Europe from where I also fly to Japan for three weeks. I won’t return to the US until August 21.

I might be able to do something while in Japan since I have access to the Internet through my niece’s Mac, but in Europe I’ll access the Internet whenever I have a chance since I won’t be traveling with a laptop.
