It’s finally here, after almost one year of uploading to and selling on Amazon Merch, my first ever customer review and it is a blasting 5 stars review! I am beyond happy to see it!

Amazon Customer Review of PopSocket

It’s for one of my PopSockets that keep selling on a regular basis. I hope this review will push sales upwards!

Being a working mum with two lovely mini-mes has drastically limited my screen time. Four years ago, I had almost endless hours free time to create new items on a vast variety on print on demand websites. But it changed after the first pregnancy. I once considered myself the leading artist for digital artwork around the Santa Monica Pier with a broad selection of unique travel souvenirs. And BAM, I have been overpassed by now.

So I need to get back into the saddle, uppload new designs, promote my Santa Monica Pier gift ideas like crazy and slowly increase my sales.

In case you would like to help me promoting them free on Pinterest, maybe you’d like to check them out in my Santa Monica Pier Travel Souvenir Board?

So, what are you concentrating on at the moment?

 

Today (April 17) is World Hemophilia Day. It’s supposed to raise awareness of the “not as rare as you might think” hemophilia A genetic decifiency which results in bleeding. It affects males and there is no real cure yet. You can (and should) fight to remain living an active lifestyle, do not let this genetic disorder hinder you in what you can and want to do!

I have created a simple text based design to help raise awareness. I am too late for this year, but maybe someone will buy it for World Hemophilia Day 2020 🙂

Zazzle, Spreadshirt and Cafepress Designs to follow – will add them later 🙂

Artsadd is one of many print on demand websites and when I had created my account in 2016 I was hoping for the best. After a few disappointments regarding sales at CowCow, ForUDesign, Design by Humans and Live Hero, I would have needed a successful new website to sell my designs. After all, sales on Zazzle, Cafepress and Society6 seem to decline from year to year.

So I put all hopes into Artsadd and created thousands of products – one by one since there is no mass designer tool. The prices were and are great, free shipping worldwide must be nice for customers and I had even ordered some of my products myself. But it did not help in the long run. It tool me TWO YEARS to reach the cashout limit of $100 for weeks and weeks of uploading, creating and sharing online. NOT worth my time!

I think the worst thing they could do is to hide the search bar for potential customers. Even I have to search for the search bar although I do know the website well. How should a customer find a product or design for a certain topic?

I have stopped to design new products in 2018 and guess what? I only had one sale in 2018 – one sale in one year!

Nope, not worth my time anymore. I will not delete my products but I doubt I will EVER make any more sales and I will probably never ever reach the $100 again…

I am uploading older designs to Redbubble like crazy to fetch up with my evergrowing pieces of artwork. I could bite myself that I had removed all works from there about two years ago. That was a mistake. I should have set it all to private instead *sigh*
