Other Tips for Success
In addition to getting to know more about the foot pic industry and arming yourself with the right equipment, here are a few other things that can help catapult your sales.
Pamper Your Feet
When it comes to selling foot content online, your feet are your canvas, which means you need to take care of them. Just like J-Lo’s booty is insured for $28 million, you need to invest in the health and appearance of your money maker – your feet! This is one of the fun parts of selling feet pics online. It’s a good excuse to get manicures, massage your feet, and buy lots of sexy and flattering footwear.
Start by creating a daily foot care routine. This should include regularly clipping your nails and cuticles. Keep your toenails at an attractive length. Avoid cutting them too short, which can cause unsightly ingrown toenails, or leaving them too long where they take away from the beauty of your toes. Always keep them painted and neat. If you’re going for a natural look and want to skip on the nail polish, keep your nails free from dirt, debris, and discoloration. Anti-fungal treatments and a whitening cleanser can help treat yellow toenails.
But it’s not just your toenails that need some TLC. Most people aren’t turned on by cracked heels or dry skin. To avoid this, apply moisturizer to your feet every day. The best time to do this is after you take a shower or bath when the skin is warm and can more easily absorb lotion and other skincare products. You can also massage lotion into your feet before bed and wear a thin pair of socks to lock in the moisture and treat them effortlessly overnight. Soaking your feet regularly can also help soften and remove dead skin.
How to Upload Your Photos
Taking gorgeous foot pics is only half the battle. Now, you have to upload them properly so that you can eventually send them off to interested and eager buyers. Each platform may have different rules and protocol for uploading your content so be sure to follow their specific instructions. In general, you can upload your pictures from a DSLR camera or your smartphone directly to a computer for additional editing. If you’re taking pictures on your smartphone, you can use editing apps and post them directly to your social media pages, website, or other platforms directly from your mobile device.
The most important thing to consider is the resolution of your pictures. High resolution pictures have a higher concentration of pixels which creates better-quality pictures with increased clarity. If you want to show all the details of your feet, high-resolution photos are the way to go. Resizing your photos can sometimes change or lower their resolution, so be sure to export your images using the right file type to prevent any distortion.
You should also add watermarks to your feet pics if you’re selling independently on social media or through your own blog or website. Watermarks help protect you against scammers and those looking to score your foot content for free. Avoid using a watermark that’s too large, placed in the middle of your picture, or that takes away from the quality of the photo. Instead, place a small, inconspicuous watermark at the bottom or corner of your photos. This way, you’re protecting your content without taking away from the customer experience.
You put in the work to create flawless feet pics and now it’s time to get paid! When it comes to selling feet pics online, getting scammed is one of the biggest concerns for both sellers and buyers (check out more info on buying feet pics below). While this is a valid concern, taking the appropriate safety measures to securely and safely receive payment ensures that you can run your foot pic business without worrying over getting taken advantage of.
Most established platforms dedicated to selling feet pics also have their own payment system and method in place. This adds another level of protection and safety since you can contact the website’s customer service team if something goes wrong with the final transaction. Additionally, these websites screen both buyers and sellers to verify their identity and help protect both parties. Even if the site charges a registration fee or overhead for posting your feet pics, this is a small price to pay for peace of mind and protection over your assets.
On the other hand, (or should we say, foot?), if you’re selling your foot content directly to buyers via social media, OnlyFans, or other private platforms, it’s your job to protect yourself. Here are a few ways to do just that.
- Always accept payment first before sending customers any pictures
- Never share your banking details
- Use reputable payment platforms and apps like CashApp, PayPal, Venmo, Stripe, and Patreon
- Never share your personal information including your full name, phone number, email address, or location
- Don’t accept overpayment for your feet pics
- Never make a payment if a buyer asks for you to verify your identity or legitimacy
The only time it’s acceptable to make a payment for selling your feet pics is if you’re paying a reputable website to host your page.
Create a User-Friendly and Engaging Sales Page
Your sales page should be attractive, professional, fun, and user-friendly. Don’t make your customers work for what they want. Create a visually pleasing page that showcases all your best foot pics from the start. Organize them into different categories and collections. For example, “BDSM”, “high heels'', and “feet worship” are all popular categories. This makes it easier for buyers to find what they’re looking for.
You can also create collections and foot pic packages. For example, if you generally sell your feet pics for $10 a piece, offer a discount by creating a 5-picture package for $45. This saves buyers $5 and helps you earn more, faster. You can also offer limited-time discounts and specials to attract new buyers that may turn into repeat customers.
