We want to let photographers know that the earlier you list your photography business in the MegaPixeld Directory the better off you’re going to be. This is for a number of factors but for the purpose of this post, the biggest factor is on your wallet.
Lets go over a couple reasons why you are holding back:
- As a photographer you expect to be overcharged on everything and if you’re not, then the product or service is probably a joke. Some Directories are out there charging photographers $50/month. Yes, that’s PER MONTH and adds up to $600 per year. Sure compare that with a print advertisement or other advertising and that’s a pretty good deal. However, what are you truly receiving for that cost? Perhaps these directories that I’ve come across started like MegaPixeld and offered a really low cost. I am not sure but what some are offering is nothing new. If you’re holding back because MegaPixeld is too cheap right now, that’s okay because eventually the prices are changing. They will be changing appropriately though and offering new ways that are current and forward thinking.
- Most photography websites like to flood you with the same information and product pitches time and time again. Perhaps you’re holding back because MegaPixeld isn’t offering prizes to win Kevin Kubota actions or A Triple Scoop Membership for a day. You ask yourself “How boring is this place? I want free stuff!” Perhaps we’ll be offering some really rad contests but not for the same old things you see on every website and feeding the same photographers families. As much as we love to know that top photographers are feeding their families, we also want lesser known photographers to gain exposure and have the ability to grow. We look to help the socially engaged photographers that are working so hard to grow their business and a listing in our directory could give just enough boost to shoot photography for 1 more month into the future. We need you to do your great work. We promote you and not just the same old photographers seen everywhere.
- I’m not an A-List Photographer and starting this project is nothing special to you. This could be worst assumption you ever make. As a photographer myself, I built this website and photography directory because I was upset with how hard it is for emerging photographers to build search engine ranking and gain the exposure they so deserve. Our passion to help people live a remarkable life through photography is overflowing and MegaPixeld is only going to become a greater resource as time goes by. As the resource grows, the price for everything here is going to change.
So What’s the Price to List your Photography Business Today?
Free Photography Website Listing

When will Prices to List Your Photography Business Change?
This is a super awesome question. There are a number of factors that are going to come into play for our future pricing adjustments and we want to share them so that as changes happen, they don’t seem random.
The biggest reason for a price increase to list your photography business in our directory will be related to Page Rank and our growth as a website. As we grow and our page rank increases, there is a greater value to every single photographers website listed within the directory. The authority being sent to every website linked from us will be stronger. The earlier this relationship is built, the better it becomes over time. We have no idea how quickly page rank and growth will happen here; however, we’re applying a slow and steady, organic method because it’s the only way we know how to do it. Let’s look at an example:
Right now, MegaPixeld sits at a Page Rank of 1 out of 10. This sure beats no Page Rank and a 0 out of 10. I don’t know when the Page Rank will change and when it does, the pricing will change. The same will happen if the Page Rank falls. This change is only fair; however, there would be no refunds or partial refunds if a photographer listed at PR4 and the next month the website became PR3. With a monthly or annual subscription the fee would adjust with PR though. The change from a ONE TIME fee to a monthly or annual subscription wouldn’t happen until PR3 is reached. Anyone that listed during the one time fee structure would never have to pay subscription model though. The one time fee model would simply become grandfathered and no long an option for new listings.
With PR1, you’re seeing the prices at $9 and $17. A change from PR1 to PR2 would increase the prices by $3 – a Pro Listing would become $20 and a Plus Listing would be $12.
A change from PR2 to PR3 would increase the prices by $5 and the structure would move from a one time listing fee to a new subscription model with the choice of Monthly or Annually. A Pro listing would become $25/year or $2.49/month – A better deal going to those that pay on a yearly basis. A Plus Listing would become $17/year or $1.99/month.
Let’s Wrap This UP
The point of talking about the price of listing your photography business in our directory is to let you know that right now is a key time in our existence.
We’re looking to provide a huge value to photographers that are early adopters of the vision that is MegaPixeld. We want to create a world class photography directory for socially engaged photographers to build their photography business and increase the serendipitous benefits that can occur from being engaged in the photography industry. We want to promote the up and coming photography business so that it grows in the area it’s trying to work within. We want more people to be able to live a life that involves photography everyday! We want you to have the ability to grow your business without being obsessed with if your listing is getting hits or not.
A number of photographers are already experiencing boosts in their search engine ranks! This means more eyeballs are finding their websites for the specific keyword of which they want to be found. It’s not just more traffic, it’s more traffic searching for what the photographer is offering.
We hope you consider listing today.
