Having been accepted to Amazon Merch to sell t-shirt designs on Amazon’s own Marketplace has been pretty challenging for me since I do not consider myself a designer and have no skills in software. Even GIMP is too complicated for me, Photoshop is something I will never even begin to grasp.

But for Amazon Merch and the biggest marketplace in the western world, you NEED png files with 4500 x 5400 px or else they will not even upload your graphics. What to do? I tried to find something as easy as possible to create designs in no time with my photos and I also wanted to find something that lets me add text to it since typography is a huge trend you should not miss.

That’s where I came across Fotor.com which seems to fulfill all my needs: You can add funny stickers, a transparent background or any image/photo you want plus great fonts to add stylish text. There is a very comprehensive free version of it that is everything you need in the beginning.

I am thinking about compiling an ebook about how to effectively use Fotor’s service to create t-shirts for Amazon Merch, would that be of interest to you?

Please let me know, I am still undecided 🙂

Since Christmas is approaching extremely fast, I thought it might be nice to share one chapter from my Zazzle eBook with you. Totally free of charge, I hope you enjoy it!

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?

Many Zazzle sellers and affiliates fail to get many sales to earn them decent money. Read this article to receive some help.

Zazzle is an international print-on-demand service. You can shop millions of great gift ideas and presents. But they also let you design your own items with your photos or art on them and then you can sell them in a free shop. You earn royalty for every sale of your own products or 15% when you refer any sale as their affiliate.

I am actively designing and selling on Zazzle for less than one year and have several sales per week. My articles and blog entries on Triond or my blog Zizzling Zazzle are my proof that you can earn a decent amount without having much to do.

Many Zazzlers keep asking me what I am doing and what they need to do to increase sales and earnings on Zazzle. I have written some articles about it and I have also written my first pretty comprehensive eBook that might help you, too!

It is available on Amazon for the Kindle and on Smashwords in many more formats:

Effective but FREE marketing for your Zazzle shop and products

The good thing about my method is that it is absolutely FREE but EFFECTIVE! Before I thought about promoting my work the way I promote it now, I had maybe one sale per month. Now I have several per week and sometimes even one or more per day!

Isn’t this cool?

The second good thing about my method is that everyone can do it! You don’t need much time, you don’t have to invest any money. E with 5 minutes per day, you should be able to see an increase very soon. Furthermore, the eBook is written for everyone to understand it. I write about things everyone can do. If you have signed up for Zazzle and have already created one or a few items, then you have all it takes to understand my eBook! You don’t need to be an IT expert.

Here are some excerpts from reviews that I have received:

“So much information, clearly stated and easy to follow, I am going to use these tips to help promote my zazzle shop.” Review by: Diane H

“This book is very good for a beginner or one that has yet to figuring out how to market themselves.” Review by: Tina Shaskus

“Making a store on zazzle is very easy, but if you don’t know what to do next, what’s the point? Even for a beginner, such as myself, this book is very easy to follow. In this first book, she walks you through the steps to help make your store successful. Drawing on her own experiences, this book will help guide you on the best ways to promote your products.” Review by: Ann LaMar

And do you know what’s absolutely BEST about my eBook? It does not only work with Zazzle products! It does also work with Cafepress, Etsy, FineArtAmerica, RedBubble, Society6 and every other shop you want to promote!

My eBook is published, read all about it here:

Yesterday, I had made a decision. With half of my book finished, I have published the first half and the second half will be published later this year or next year with even more advice about this topic.

Please note that my eBook is not written for people who have not yet started selling designs on Zazzle. My target are people who have already created a few (or many) products and now seek for a way to increase their sales and to spread the word. All all this free!

I am selling things almost daily and am active on Zazzle for less than a year! And all this with no penny investment, my marketing is FREE.

If you would like to find out what I am doing, you might be interested in my eBook. As of now, it is available on Smashwords.com with a huge variety of formats to choose from. I plan to also have it included it popular shops like Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble very soon.

I hope it will help you increasing your sales and enjoying Zazzle. Don’t forget to tell me what you think 🙂
