Find your inspiration and your domain.
No matter what your interest is when it comes to cameras, express it with the perfect camera website.
Before you start building your website, figure out what your focus is. It could be:
Selling cameras and accessories
Reviewing models and their functionality
Teaching others how to use their device
Discussing the latest releases
Drone footage vs stabilized DSLR cameras or GoPros
Best body and lens combinations
Once you’ve zoomed in on the purpose of your camera website, come up with a domain name for it. You want to choose something that clearly reflects your interests, is simple and that helps you to stand out from the crowd. Don’t limit yourself to thinking inside the .com box when it comes to domains. You can now get creative with domain extensions like .camera and .photos, so make sure to consider all the different options that are now available.
Pick the right website builder.
To make your camera website stand out from the crowd, make sure you choose the right platform to build it on. Choose a website builder that provides you with the elements and features that you want on your site. Website builders that let you add an easy-to-use online store are a good choice if you’re looking to sell cameras. A simple, user-friendly platform that makes it easy to add a blog or a forum might be a good choice if you’re focused on reviewing cameras and their features or want to create community discussions around specific camera topics. No matter what the purpose of your camera website is, be sure to select the right foundation to build it on.
Sell your merchandise online.
Who doesn’t love buying new equipment? Many photographers are looking to upgrade their old camera to a newer, more professional model. Creating an interactive, easy-to-use online store will appeal to those in the market for a new camera. Your online store should feature the price of your cameras and as many product details as possible. Include information about pixels, resolution, focus type, shutter speed and more. Adding a few customer reviews and actual images taken with the camera is a good idea as well.
Basically the more details you add to the products you’re selling, the higher the chance you have of making a sale.
Put your knowledge on display with a blog.
There’s a lot to learn when it comes to working a camera. Offer your readers some support by featuring tips and tricks on your site. Post blog articles, photos or videos on how to get the most out of a camera. Show your readers the best way to clean a specific DSL lens or which setting on a GoPro works best for an underwater shot. Not only will your readers love the advice, but they’re likely to share your content with other photographers.
Be sure your blog includes a wide range of advice, like:
- Cleaning techniques
- When to use specific camera settings
