- Less is more. Most people think that using a highly bogus or outdated theme would make their website look catchy and fun. But on the contrary, it makes you look archaic and too flashy.

- Blog regularly. If you are too lazy to blog regularly, then don’t start blogging at all. Blogging once in a while would make you look scattered and lazy. Blogging often will drive lots of traffic to your website which is very beneficial to you. Post content that goes in line with what you are doing (photography). For example, you can post content on what to wear, the benefits of taking photos, how to create a family album and so much more.
- Have a beautiful store front. Your website store front window is one of the first things a person sees when he/she visits your site.

Use your answers to these inquiries to create a magnificent storefront.
- Make sure your contact information is on your site. Many customers will leave your site for another if your contact details are confusing or null.
