Help with selling Photobook!

Post by outsider » July 23rd, 2015, 2:40 pm

I am in the beginning stages of creating a photobook of photography. It will be a simple presentation with an introduction about my philosophy and who I am and perhaps a reference guide at the end for more meaningful photos. The photo's will not have commentary on the same page because it's being presented as art and not storytelling or journalism. A few questions I have are: If I use any photo book company, is there an easy way to sell it through sites like amazon? I see lots of self published books on amazon, but I have no idea how I would get my book displayed on the site if I were use the photobook maker, Artisan State or Shutterfly. I want something easy, that people can see, use their credit or debit cards and have the book shipped to them, quick and easy. I do know that blurb.com offers some kind of selling option, which you can link to a facebook page or website, but i'm not sure which company i'm going to use yet. As you can tell, i'm new to this and any information you think may be helpful is very welcome! I really like the idea of having a company that will take orders from anyone and ship the book to the customer. Thanks so much!
