Effective but FREE marketing for your Zazzle shop and products

Chapter 5: Zazzle Itself

What other website would be better for promoting your items than Zazzle itself? The basic goal for a fairly new shop should be to get your shop and your designs noticed. That is why I consider it utterly important to browse around other shops. Maybe you find them while browsing interesting products or while checking potential topics and tags (or rather your “competitors”). If you like a store, why not show that like by clicking the “thumb up” for that store?

Most stores have this feature activated and when you like a store, you are also asked whether you would like to be informed about new products. It is up to you to use this feature or not. I have it activated. When receiving the daily (or weekly/monthly) newsletter, I take a look at the new products and when I like a design, I go there and also click the button on the product page. Sometimes I also leave a comment on a new product to show the Zazzler that I apprechiate his/her work.

Now you might be asking yourself how this will help you.

That’s pretty easy: When you like a shop or item, the Zazzle member will receive an email notifying him/her about it and the chances are always high that you will receive a “like” and/or comment in return! The more people like your shop and your items, the more popular you and your designs will get. Perfect for our goal!

So, why don’t you start with liking my Zazzle shop?

I have sold another postcard this month.

It really honors me that from all the photos with the very popular Golden Gate Bridge, Seymour from Laguna Woods (California) has purchased a post card with our photo 🙂

Thank you so much for this honor!

This is the card we have sold:

I think this is an unusual angle and an extraordinary photo of the famous bridge. Maybe that makes it successful?

 

I had concentrated on promoting my postcards and I do see sales picking up.

I had concentrated on promoting my postcards on Pinterest and other photo loving websites and it seems that it did work. I am selling a lot of postcards at the moment and I see this as a success. The next items I will concentrate on will be posters to test whether I can change the trend. I have never sold a poster before, so December will be my poster testing month *lol*

Anyway, Heike from Dornstadt in Germany was so kind to purchase this postcard:

We had shot this photo on our USA vacation somewhere in Arizona on our way to the Colorado river. The donkey was really hard to spot!

Heike has earned me €0.08 with this purchase which is about $0.11. Thank you, Heike! Vielen Dank 🙂
