->> I use and love Photoshelter.

It really comes down to how well you tag and keyword stuff on there. PS is nice, because it has a little, green SEO button next to sections that help boost your search engine views on Google and such.

Legendary baseball photog Brad Mangin ( uses Photoshelter and sells a lot of stock imagery from years past (similar to the stuff you probably have in rock & roll) during the off season.

Check out how he has his site on PS.

->> I have made many sales from my website. You can get found a lot easier through your blog and then have your photos on that blog and website linked to your Photoshelter archive. I usually get inquiries about photos and then the client can do a search of your archive via Photoshelter. Make sure you have a contact page where a potential client can fill out a form and make an inquiry, they usually want to negotiate price directly with you.

->> I drive a fair number of sales to my PhotoShelter site through Facebook and Twitter. Facebook is an especially useful source for getting noticed by opposing team players/fans in my sports galleries.

Nuthin' fancy. PhotoShelter makes it easy. At least the front end. Still not entirely sure how the back end is supposed to work since there huge upgrade snafu of a few months ago, but I muddle through.

I like the versatility of it and if you like you can make it your main website.
