If you’re new to the world of selling feet pics, you’re probably wondering where to start. While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to how much you should be charging, this article will give you some general information and knowledge on how to price your quality feet pics so you can turn a profit and generate a consistent income.
So hold onto your tootsies as we take a closer look at how to price your feet pics.
How Much Do Most Feet Pics Sell For?
While there’s no set number that will guarantee you sell your feet pics and make money hand over fist (or should we say, foot?), most feet pics sell for between $5 and $100. As long as you’re producing quality photos and selling them at the lower end of the spectrum (between $5 and $15), you’ll probably land quite a few sales. But are you selling yourself short?
Once you’ve established yourself in the foot fetish industry or produce high-quality, niche photos that people are dying to get their hands on, you can start charging more. These rare photos can earn you upwards of $50 or more. Another category that brings in the big bucks is custom orders. When buyers contact you directly asking for very specific, personalized pictures and videos, you can start charging $100 and beyond. Remember, you’re doing all the work, plus editing, which takes time. And you should be paid for your efforts!
Factors that Affect the Price of Feet Pics
When it comes time to price your sexy feet pics, there are several things to consider. Everything from the type of photo you take to what you’re doing in it and who your target audience is can help determine how low or high to set the price.
Who the Client Is
When it comes to sales, knowing your target audience is everything. Understanding their needs means knowing not only how to market your product to them (in this case, feet pics), but how in demand what you’re selling is and thus, how much to charge. Here’s a closer look at who’s buying feet pics, why, and for how much.
One of the largest groups of people buying feet pics is foot lovers. 1 in 7 people report having a foot fetish. Foot fetishes vary from wanting to touch, rub, lick, and suck feet and toes to simply wanting to view them in photographs and videos. Some people practice foot worship while others dabble in the kinky side of foot fetishes and partake in foot bondage. As you can see, even within the foot fetish category of buyers there are even more specific subcategories to consider.
When it comes to price, this varies depending on how badly the person wants your content. The more followers you have on social media and subscribers on platforms like Instafeet and Onlyfans, the more you can charge. Start at the low end of things, charging between $5 and $10 per picture. Once you become more popular and well-known, you can start charging $20, $30, or even $50 per photo.
Using teasers is another popular way to gain more followers, subscribers, and paying customers. Share a teaser picture that shows just a single part of your foot or a blurred version of the image. Fans who want to see the rest will need to pay. There’s a lot of wiggle room when it comes to charging for feet pics in the foot fetish community. It all depends on your popularity, negotiating skills, and how badly the person wants what you’ve got. Subscription sites charge users a monthly fee to access your content. This can range from $4.99 per month to $15.99 per month.
Artists and Bloggers
If you’ve ever downloaded a picture from a photo website like Shutterstock, Unsplash, or Pixabay, you know that the Internet is flooded with stock photographs for just about everything and anything you can imagine. Artists, bloggers, and other creative minds are constantly on the lookout for affordable, high-quality photos to use for inspiration and to grace the pages of their websites.
These feet pics are often more generic and less kinky. For example, artists including sculptures and sketch artists use models as their muse and need a focus. If they can’t get a real-life model to pose for them, your beautiful feet pics are the next best thing. Take high-quality photos of your bare feet in a variety of poses and positions like arching your foot, your feet crossed at the ankles or even your hands resting gently on the tops of your feet. All of these images can act as creative inspiration for the right artist. While some “starving artists” might have a tight budget, others might become repeat customers if they like your work. Start pricing your photos around $5 to $10 a piece and go up from there. The same rule applies to bloggers. Most writers are simply looking for a generic photo to accompany their article. Unless the blogger needs something very specific, they may not want to pay more than $10 per photo.
Magazines, Doctor’s Offices, and Other Professionals
Websites and magazines have to get their photographs somewhere, right? Why not from your feet pic platform? As with most other clients, the price you charge is directly related to how in demand your pictures are. Doctors’ offices will use generic photos depending on their specialty and may pay top dollar for niche photos. The same can be said for magazines and product creators. While you don’t need to be a professional foot model to sell feet pics to professionals, they may ask for a portfolio of your work so keep that in mind. You may even get lucky enough to land a long-term contract that brings in consistent work.
What Platform You’re Selling Them On
As foot fetishes rise in popularity so is the market for selling feet pics. People are constantly looking for new and unique ways to make money from home or a lucrative side hustle. Because of this, an increasing number of foot pic platforms have been launched in recent years. Some of the most popular include:
You can sell your feet pics on one or all of these websites depending on your availability but don’t compromise quality for quantity. Managing multiple platforms takes time, effort, and consistency.
Each platform has different rules and regulations about selling feet pics. While some let you charge a subscription fee, others ask you to sell your feet pics individually. Some websites keep a percentage of your earnings while others let you keep every last penny of your payments. Most feet pics platforms also let fans and followers send you monetary tips for your hard work.
If you’re selling feet pics on a site that keeps a percentage (usually 20%), you’ll want to calculate this into your listing price. For example, if you sell a foot pic for $10 and the website keeps 20%, you’ll only receive $8. If your goal is to earn $10 per foot pic, you’ll need to charge more. Just keep in mind that each time you increase your prices, you may lose a few customers looking for acceptable quality pics at affordable prices. Sometimes, pricing feet pics is about calculating quantity over quality. While you can sell about a dozen low-priced feet pics in a single day or week at $10 a picture for $120, it could take you months to sell a single foot pic priced at $100.
You should consider how many users each platform has. The larger the audience and higher the traffic, the better chances you have of selling multiple feet pics, gaining followers, expanding your audience, and earning tips. But it’s not just users you need to worry about. Size up the competition on these websites and see what other creators are charging. You want to price your feet pics competitively but fairly.
The Category of Feet Pics
Kink sells. Generic feet pics are a dime a dozen, which means most amateur sellers are taking ordinary photos of things like their recent pedicure, a new pair of high heels, or their toes curled. Because these pics are common, you probably can’t charge as much for this type of basic content. These average feet pics are priced right around the $5 mark.
Now, if you delve into more exotic and kinkier types of feet pics including foot bondage, dirty feet, humiliation, and specific parts of the foot, you can start charging more. These types of feet pics aren’t as common and might fetch you anywhere from $10 to $30 or more, depending on the client. Some more unconventional categories include:
- Asian/ebony feet
- Foot accessories (tattoos, jewelry, etc.)
- Measuring feet
In the end, the final selling price is often based on just how bad the person wants your pic.
More on Custom Orders and Foot Videos
One of the best ways to make money selling feet pics online is to take custom orders. As previously mentioned, the more unconventional and specific the foot pic request, the more you can charge. Providing rare content is the key to charging big bucks for your content. You can sell both feet pics and videos to private clients with some willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a single image or video.
When pricing custom orders, consider the following things:
- How difficult will it be to create?
- What supplies do you need? (backdrop, accessories, etc.)
- The time it will take to edit the content
- How rare the category is
Most private clients will contact you via private messenger on one of your accounts. When it comes to landing sales, you need to be personable and even a little flirtatious at times but never do anything that makes you or the buyer uncomfortable. Strike up a conversation and find out exactly what they’re looking for and what they’re willing to pay. For your first order, consider charging between $50 and $100 and then negotiate from there. If the request is for a video, you can definitely charge more. You don’t want to sell yourself short but, in the same turn, you don’t want to scare away potential buyers by charging too much. It’s a tricky balance that comes with experience. In time, you’ll learn which clients are willing to pay what, and you can negotiate and update your prices from there.
Tips for Increasing the Value of Your Feet Pics
Whether you’ve been selling feet pics for a while and want to increase your prices or are new to the industry but want to start at the top, these tips can help increase the value of your pics and your chances of earning top-dollar for your content.
Only Post Quality Photos
The term “quality” is pretty subjective, even when discussing feet pics. What one person may deem as a beautiful foot pic, someone else might notice minor imperfections. While you can’t please everyone, focusing on these factors can help you produce gorgeous feet pics that people are willing to pay for.
- Backdrop and setting
- Including your body or face (check the website’s community guidelines)
- Only using small, inconspicuous watermarks (check the website’s community guidelines)
- Experiment with different angles and poses
- Add accessories and a variety of feet pics
- Edit, edit and edit some more
Don’t just snap a quick photo and post it without taking the time to review it and make necessary edits. Potential buyers will spot shoddy, rushed work from a while away and will simply scroll to the next seller who took those few extra moments to polish their work.
Add Variety and Be Diverse
They say variety is the spice of life. If you continue to post the same types of feet pics over and over again, one of two things will happen. Either you’ll see an influx of sales at the beginning that will slowly peter out as people get bored of the repetition or you’ll only attract one type of client willing to pay one, small, fee for your pics. The more diverse your pictures are, the more diverse your clientele will be and you’ll drastically increase your sales.
Think outside the box – literally. Take feet pics outdoors, at the gym, in a pool, on the beach, or in your vehicle (while parked, of course). The possibilities are truly endless. Get creative with your feet pics and take notice of which type of content does best and replicate it, just not so often that it becomes repetitive.
If you want to become an established and trusted creator in the foot fetish industry, your work needs to be consistent. No one wants to spend a lot of money on feet pics from a seller they’ve never heard of or one that posts sporadically. Instead, post on a consistent basis to establish authority. Once buyers know they can rely on you, they’ll be much more likely to pay for your feet pics and stick with you when your prices go up. This also increases the likelihood that you’ll receive custom order requests, which is where the big money lies.
Market Yourself and Your Work
Selling feet pics is a freelance business. If you don’t market yourself, you won’t attract buyers, followers, or subscribers. Without a following, it won’t matter if your feet pics are priced high or low because no one will see or buy them. The best way to market yourself and your feet pics are to be active on social media. While some platforms like Twitter are more lenient with adult content, you need to be careful on both Facebook and Instagram. Use these platforms to promote your feet pics but then direct buyers to your personal website or blog. It’s best to negotiate pricing via private messenger, a messaging app, via email, or through your website to avoid violating community standards. Doing so could result in your account being banned and you losing all of your content and hard work.
Once you and the buyer agree on a price and method of payment, be sure to collect your money before providing any content. This protects you from getting scammed or wasting your time and effort on producing high-quality content only to get robbed of your earnings.
Price Your Feet Pics Competitively but Fairly
Whether you’re selling feet pics online as a side hustle or as a full-time gig, how you price them plays an important role. Priced too high and it could take you months to sell a single image. Price them too low and you won’t make a profit. Unfortunately, pricing feet pics is highly subjective. Especially since they say you can’t put a price on art and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Take a good look at what other creators are selling their feet pics for. Establish yourself as a reputable and trusted seller to earn recognition as an authority in the industry. Once you do, you can start charging more for your content. And, remember, the more custom orders you generate, the higher you can price your content.
