Danny Outlaw recently made a post to The River Current where he talked about other ways to promote your stock files and services. He had this to say about Flickr:

“I had always heard about how Flickr was a good way to promote your website designs, templates, and design work, but always took it with a grain of salt until I tried it for myself.”

So here is my question, which photo website is the best to promote yourself and supplies the best tools for Developers and Designers?

I know that Flickr has an API and other helpful tools, but does anyone know about the other sites?

Behance and flickr make a good combo.

When I finish a project, I make a behance page that consists in multiple screenshots of it (advantage of behance). Flickr though, is nice when you’re not very well known because you can include it in flickr groups that people visit, thus generating exposure. So i just save another screenshot, put it in flickr and add a link to my behance page, where they can see more photos of that project.

People like deviantart too, but I don’t use it.

In time, i stopped adding to groups in flickr, and my behance portfolio has kicked off. If you get a front page feature, that’s a lot of attention to your work.

Clients generally contact me through behance, because they don’t need an account to email me. I think you need one on flickr to do that, but i may be wrong.

i do use Flickr most times and join related groups on there. Thought, asking authors “how do you promote your envato items” is sort of tuff question. I feel authors doesnt need to advertise their items at all, as this is the reason we use envato marketplaces…to benefit from the traffic envato drives, not to drive traffic to the marketplace and still pay 60% commissions.

Behance is aimed at all creative fields. I checked the creative fields list, and yes, web development is included.
