Many ask this question. The answer is that most likely you can – but the amount of money you can make varies a lot and it depends on the uniqueness of your photos, their quality and your selling abilities. Here are a few hints and concepts when it comes to making money from your photos.
First of all you need to set expectations as to how much money you can make. This article is for readers that are looking to make some extra cash from their photos not looking to turn their photos into their main stream of cash. Such extra cash can be used for example to cover the spending on their photography hobby or selling photos can just be a fun experience.
One thing you can try to do with your photos is to sell them online. There are many websites that let you sell photos. The basic idea behind most of them is simple: they let you upload your photos, showcase them and set their prices. The site users can browse through your photos and purchase the ones they like. Addition features allow users to write comments about your photos. This is a fun way to get feedback from viewers and to connect to new people with the same interests as yours. Some of these sites are free to use and only collect a commission from the proceeds. Other sites charge a setup fee or a membership fee. Examples of such sites are: http://www.photostockplus.com and http://www.smugmug.com
In addition some sites allow you to set two prices: one is for a non exclusive right to use the photo – this is the price someone pays to download the photo and use it – while others can download the same photo and use it too. An exclusive price is usually much higher and means that once a user buys the exclusive usage rights for the photo you can not sell it to anyone else (or use it yourself). Once a photo is sold under the ‘non exclusive” option – it can not be exclusively purchased.
You can also decide to build your own website to either sell your photo on it or make money from advertisement on the site. If your photos are unique and can attract viewers you can create a blog or a site with your photos alongside with some text describing them and the story behind taking them. Spread the word about your site to your friends and family and post information about it in forums and chat boards. Once you generate traffic add advertisements to your site. To create your site you can use tools such as http://www.blogger.com and http://www.typepad.com. To place advertisements you can use advertisement syndication networks like http://www.google.com/adsense and publisher.yahoo.com.
Another more conventional method is to sell your photos in coffee shops and galleries. It requires more legwork and a more significant upfront investment. Print and frame a few of your best photos. Go to local galleries and try to convince them …
Recently launched is a brand new social networking site with a bit of a twist. Huzo although similar to sites such as Facebook and Twitter, also combines the facilities to download movies, music, games and e-books, so it is Amazon, iTunes and Netflix all rolled into one. It is the creation of Terrell Samuels. Samuels calls it revolutionary and it is a one stop shop for entertainment and media.
So how do you make money?
In these tough economic times people are still surprisingly spending money on entertainment. However rather than go out to a restaurant or to watch a movie at the cinema they are entertaining themselves in the comfort of their homes through downloading and watching movies, listening to music, reading books and playing video games
It is totally free to join the site but when you refer someone to Huzo you get paid a commission, and on top of this, you also get paid two percent of the cost on all films, games, music and books which that person downloads. The company is able to not charge a fee to join because some of the revenue from the books, movies and music etc is redirected back to the customers. On top of this the company also sets out two percent of its entire revenue stream and is able to put that into its own personal charitable organization
One of the benefits of a company such as Huzo is that in effect they are not targeting new money. The money (all $ 120 billion of it) is already being spent. Instead Terrell says that his company is simply providing a richer experience for the end user. They call it entertainment 3.0 the whole idea of combining entertainment on all levels is a good one.
Facebook is now the number one most visited internet site on the planet and Google's reign as top dog has come to an end. It seems that social media is here to stay and it is only going to grow. There is no business who can take advantage of this or at least try to be on the upward slope of a trend will probably make some serious money.
There are plenty of social media sites jumping on the success bandwagon that is Facebook and Twitter and a result it is now a competitive marketplace. However Huzu looks like a breath of fresh air. The idea of one place where you can tap into all your entertainment needs is pretty clever and in this respect will probably go on to give the guys a run for their money.
Speaking of money realistically you probably will not be able to make life changing amounts of cash from this unless you build up a huge team of people and know how to market the opportunity to its full potential and in this respect it may not be a full Time business prospect. However Huzo is a good way to make some money on the side while …

According to the plan chosen, the insurer pays the medical costs of the insured if the insured becomes sick due to covered causes, or due to accidents.
Florida heath insurance companies mainly offer two types of insurance – indemnity plans and managed care plans. With indemnity plans, the insurer reimburses the insured for medical expenses no matter who provides the service. The indemnity category includes three different plans, which include reimbursement of actual charges, reimbursement of a percent of the actual charges, and indemnity. With the first plan, the insurance provider will reimburse for the total cost of the service, the second plan covers a percentage, while the indemnity will cover a definite amount daily for a specified number of days.
There are mainly three types of managed care plans – HMOs (Health Maintenance Organizations), PPOs (Preferred Provider Organizations), and POSs (Point of Service plans). According to the HMO plan, the insured has to pay a flat monthly rate. PPOs are paid on a service-by-service basis. PPOs are usually sponsored by insurance companies or employers who reimburse the insured for the service. In a POS plan the insured pays a small co-payment as long as the service provider is a part of the network.
The rates for Florida health insurance vary from one insurance company to another. It is advisable to compare various insurance providers before selecting any particular health insurance plan. Most of the insurance companies also offer online insurance quotes. This helps the customers to select the ideal insurance policy that suits them the best.…
