    Inked,

    Says you and I dont agree. I agree with Jorge.

    Actually that makes a lot of sense. I've never sold anything here but have purchased items from a few people hopefully they contributed someting. From looking at his site it looks like the magazine has some interest in addition to just photography. It is probably not that expensive to advertise here and might be a good idea for him.

    Gerald,

    He has already been down that road, he was an advertiser, but me thinks he had different motives.

    I hadn't really been following that closely to remember.

    While Inked is on the chopping block has anyone seen an issue? I have participated in some advertising but wonder if the thing has been published or not.

    The guy supplied a pdf of the second issue where your ad is placed. If you contact him I am sure he will be glad to send you a copy, is the least he can do...

    [QUOTE=Jorge]Well, I always thought it was presentation and marketing of prints not of web sites. But then, it seems you only participate on this site when you want something. Isnt there any magazine web sites where you can discuss the marketing and presentation of your magazine?

    I'm once again, not marketing my magazine. I entered into two forums asking questions, one was about film, another was about my website. If people wanted to view my website, they have the ability to view it anytime they want. If you ask me to stop putting my website in my signature, then you'd have to ask all other photographers to do the same.

    How is your site analog photography based? Sure, you include analog photography, but by your own admision the moment you get more digital advertisers and photographers, you will drop analog photography like a hot potato.

    Please go back into any of the previous posts I've made and quote that sentence exactly where I have said "The moment I get more digital advertisers and photographers, I will drop analog photography like a hot potato." If you cannot find that quote from me, verbatim, then please retract it. We have a law here in America that protects businesses and people from false claims made by other people or interests. It's called slander, Jorge. I have never said I would drop analog photography from my magazine, I have said numerous times that traditional/analog photography would be the main emphasis for the magazine, but that we also need to pay attention to the future. The traditional photography market has shurnk so considerably that only people who have a love for analog photography, mostly black and white, will continue to purchase it. Digital photography will become the future of mainstream photography...but art isn't mainstream. At least the art I market in my magazine isn't. I've shown statistics before that show even though most photographers have experiemented with digital, the long-term future will prove that most art photographers will continue and prefer to use the traiditional photography process and so will my magazine.

    I, once again, came onto this forum to talk about marketing photographers and their prints and asked a simple question about one of the ways I market them.

    Nothing wrong with that, but it sure would be nice if you stopped advertising your magazine here. Simmons was asked to stop advertising his magazine here, and his is a far more relevant magazine to analog photography than yours, so it is only fair you abide by the same code.
    I'm not advertising my magazine, I'm asking simple questions to which other people bring up my magazine. The last time I started a thread and advertised my magazine was in the Sponsors Forum about two months ago.

    Actually, I have taken most if not all of your answers into consideration and have acted upon them...in fact, I have completely altered the original strategy I had based upon the feedback I received here. I was going to do away with HTML, but I decided to keep it and offer FLASH to those who want to use it. I will continue to update and refreshen the HTML side of the site to make it look more appealing. I've spent thousands of dollars on that website, from marketing it, to desinging and re-designing it. I'm going to make sure that my rankings stay in the top 5 with the best looking photography-based website out there.

    To be honest, I would love to support Sean and this forum with a monthly financial contribution. That choice was removed from my options two months ago, by Sean because my website contained photography that was digitally based.

    I also post and talk on a lot of digital photography forums, and it''s so interesting how professional digital photographers are more accepting of a magazine that, for the majority, doesn't adhere to their own way of photography. I guess if you even mention the word "digital" on an analog based photography forum, which in this day and age it's foolish to pretend it doesn't exist, people feel threatened that their way of life is going to be taken away from them. If anyone would care to take a look, I am not here to threaten anyone's analog ways of life, I market and talk about many more traditional photographers than I do digital. I myself am about to begin experimenting with analog photography and will upload my results when I am done developing them...or when the lab is done at least.
