Making business with USA is a doggy thing
I just lost $590 USD because of liquidation of DRR and I also didn’t receive a check of about $700 USD for a job that I’ve done for a magazine from Texas.
I’m reluctant to do any business with clients from USA, because it’s far worse then here on Balkans!
I’m standing before a decision should I buy a new on-line archive or should I invest that money in a good site like aphotofolio.com? Only bad thing about aphotofolio is that they are USA based and that makes my hair stand up!
Do you know any good internet site provider from EU? I mean a professionally designed website with hosting for photographers in the budget range between 500 and 800 EUR?
I’ll check again what Robert Benson has to say about it.
I go with the tip from Leslie Burns Dell’acqua that when times get hard spend more on marketing!
PS: Update 31.10.2008
My DRR.net/borutpeterlin account is still running, although it’s so slow it’s practically useless.
Only good thing is that sites that offer hosting for Hi-Res images are fighting for us, former DRR members, offering discounts. We’ll see what I will decide. For now, I’m lingering towards a decision to buy really posh portfolio site from aphotofolio.com and use http://www.me.com/gallery for distribution of images. I am trying out other services like photoshelter, smugmug, http://www.sitewelder.com/, newscom.com and others. I’ll let you know in a week time or so.
