I don't recall who made the recommendation but last year there was a post by someone that was very similar to my situation. The OP had taken a ton of high school sports pics, put them on his website and hoped for orders. Their results were slim, as were mine. I had hoped to make enough to pay for my website, maybe a little extra. It was close, call it a draw.
Someone replied that maybe a good idea would be to create fliers preseason to be given to parents so they could sign-up in advance. I sure wish I could remember who so I could give them proper credit. I'll admit, I was somewhat skeptical as I live in a very low-income community.
We have a winner! I've gotten enough orders that I've had to turn some away, offering to still take pics but not making guarantees and collecting only if I can manage to fulfill their need.
So if you're reading this and it was your idea, thank you.
