How to show your online photo gallery and gain money at the same time

Every photographer out there, hobbits or professional, uploads sample photos into online portfolios. Nowadays, there are a lot of website platforms that offer the possibility of creating wonderful galleries and gather likes, shares and followers amongst the rest of the photography world.

An online photo gallery is a great way to build up reputation and stand out. To make your picture visible in the right circle of people. But, for most of the performing photographers, gaining money from this occupation is a frustrating dream. Photos don’t sell as much as we would like.

What if I told you that I found a picture sharing platform that not only allows you to create that great photo gallery in a low-competition photo community, but also offers a new way to monetize your page, other than the classic image-selling option?


Fliiby (the name stands for File Library) is a digital content publishing and monetization platform built for creative artists and developers. The platform provides an easy-to-use free service for multiple picture uploading, publishing and aggregation, enabling automated file conversion to playable web formats, with built-in options for online file sharing.

Here are some of the features of Fliiby, which make this place unique:

  • Private sharing – Share your private files and folders via unique share url’s. Track usage and revoke access when you want to.
  • File monetization – With Fliiby revenue sharing program you can start monetizing your music, photos, videos, ebooks and files. We take care of everything, from file hosting, ad delivery and timely payouts.
  • Advanced statistics Track file views, likes and downloads, breaking down data by domain, device, location, and more.

  • Embedding – Use Fliiby Player with advanced customisation and styling. We make sure your files play on any device, with HTML 5 & Flash fallback.

Fliiby File Monetization Program

On Fliiby platform, you don’t sell photos as stock, instead, you will receive money from the ads that will show up the page where your photos are hosted. This means that you will start gaining by practically doing nothing else than what you were already doing on other platforms: you stay back and enjoy the views and favs that your photos receive.

It’s very easy to join the Fliiby File Monetization Program. Once you have uploaded your pictures/files and made them public, you will have to turn on the monetization option. You will be prompted to fill in an application, but don’t worry, the approval comes very quick! Watch this video to see each step of the monetization process.

You will get paid via paypal as soon as you reach an accumulated amount of $25. This is a 50/50 revenue share coming from ads displayed at your page. However, clicks on ads must result from genuine user interest. Other details about this program can be read in the terms and content guidelines from the monetization menu of your account.

TIP: Make sure you have many relevant keywords, a clear related description and title, for each photo. This way, your images will show up at the right side when other people browse the archive of Fliiby.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
