Does anyone know the best way to advertise a free photography service?

Post your WANT. It’s like Craigslist, but reversed. And really different. At Ubokia, you’re the rockstar. Post exactly what you want and sellers respond to you. Only talk to sellers you choose.

Question by Charlie Brigante: Does anyone know the best way to advertise a free photography service?
I’m looking to broaden my photography portfolio and as I’m experimenting and gaining more experience, I’m looking for ways to attract subjects. All my services are free. Does anyone know the best way to advertise my free photography service? Thx.

Craigslist. this is where people go to find free stuff (and prostitutes).


Good luck…

Just make sure you NEVER intend to charge when you start offering your services for free.

The best way is CraigsList. Because it is a hugely popular website, not just can you attract potential clients on the website, but CraigsList also ranks pretty high in the google search engine rankings which means if you have popular keywords in your ad, when people search on google for something such as “CHEAP WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN BOSTON, MA” … a link to your ad on CraigsList will come up in google helping you to be found quickly.

There is also another website much like CraigsList which is called BackPage… and you can also advertise there, but it is not yet as popular in the search engines as CraigsList is.

By the way, if you advertise on CraigsList, your best bet is to put your ad in the Creative Services section on the website. You will attract many more people in this section. I am a wedding photographer in boston and I get a lot of business from these sites, good luck to you!

Picture2Life is a free online photoediting tool, I am guessing you can try to advertise your service(s) there.

Take a peep….
