Tag Archive: increase sales


Can you see the crystal ball ๐Ÿ”ฎ? Let’s take a journey together to have a look into it. Let’s crack the code on how to increase your sales on Society6. But be warned: I might enlighten you a bit, but I cannot promise that it will work for you as it does for me. And when talking about “it does work for me”, it certainly does NOT mean that I am getting stinkin’ rich with this. It just means that it enables me to have 1 to 5 sales per month on that darn site ๐Ÿ˜†

Have I not discouraged you yet? Great, let’s start.

First of all, Society6 is as buggy as it can get for most of us most of the time, all year round. Some people can’t upload for days or weeks and when it seems to work, Society6 does some wibbly-wobbling in the background that makes their search in the background work totally differently to before and you cannot find your own works in their search bar. They stopped showing descriptions, they do not show tags and no one really knows whether it is still important to use a good description and a vide array of relevant tags. My advice would always be to go that extra mile: Use a good description, explain your image as if you were explaining it to someone who cannot see it. And use those tages to describe it. I usually upload a new design to several sites so I do need to create a title, description and tags anyway. Do that, too!

This first advice is pretty much valid for all print on demand sites, Society6 does have one thing you have to consider when you want to sell your work in their shop: Collect those effin ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–โค!!!
As soon as you upload and publish a “work”, it can be bought. But it cannot be found in Society6’s shop yet. People could buy it via a direct link or from a Google search but it will not be included in Society6’s search. And this is why you need HEARTS or promotions as they are often called. You need other Society6 members to click on the top right corner of the product. How can you get them to “heart” your works? right, heart theirs first. You can follow people, randomly heart their stuff and hope to get noticed. Society6 does not send out notifications that tell an artist “Hey, user xyz has hearted your “123” artwork, wanna return the favor?” Nope… Would be way too easy. It’s your task to get heard and get noticed.

For this task, I do recommend Facebook groups like this one (my favorite – non-public):
Society6 Sharing Group

Share your works and other users will 1) heart it and 2) post their links in return which you 3) NEED to also promote with a heart!

In addition you can also scroll through the other user’s shared links, leave a heart and leave your shop link for them.

It is absolutely vital to return every heart or this system would a) not work and b) you might be removed from the group. And come on: It should be common courtesy, right? ๐Ÿ˜˜

I have spent most of January exchanging hearts in this group like crazy and I have generated two (make that THREE 4 hours after posting this) February sales already – after zero in January.

In addition to this exchange on Facebook, you are free to leave your Society6 shop link in a comment below and we can exchange hearts – just the two of us ๐Ÿ˜œ

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!

How to Earn More on Zazzle

Although I had started to sell stuff on Zazzle less than one year ago, my earnings are already pretty good. Read this article to find out how you can make Zazzle work for you!

[Removed reference to Triond and Gather since both sites are a thing of the past]

In this article I will try to tell you what I am doing to increase Zazzle salesand you can do the same!

All you need is a Zazzle shop, some products and a bit of time.

First of all, the more Zazzle products you have up in your store, the more you will sell. Alternatively, if you don’t want to sell your products or simply don’t have photos you want to use, why not promote other products from Zazzle? You earn 15% for referring a buyer to ANY product on Zazzle. So there is no excuse anymore, you just have to promote!

I write articles about Zazzle and some products and even about my sales. I use social networking and social bookmarking sites a lot plus traffic exchanges. I won’t go into detail too much now as I am planning on writing a comprehensive book about my success which will include all dirty little secrets about how to increase your Zazzle sales and earnings. So you might want to stay tuned *whistle*

In addition to that, I strongly recommend visiting my new blog:

Zizzling Zazzle – Home of stine1 on Zazzle

for far more information about me, my store and what I am doing to earn more with Zazzle.

Selling unique gift ideas through Zazzle with your own pictures really is a great way of earning money online. But what to do to increase your sales?

Zazzle is a great opportunity for earning money for people taking photos or drawing their own pieces of art. Or maybe you are into digital art and are looking for a way to sell your creations on t-shirt, skateboards, bags, plates, mugs, mouse pads and so much more?

If you are already selling your stuff you are probably eager to know what you can do to promote your products for free and thus increasing your sales.

In this article I will share what I am doing to increase my sales on Zazzle. So far it is working great with not much effort.

Here are my tricks, all legal and allowed:

  • To create products a lot quicker, invest one afternoon of your time for making reusable templates. When using templates, you add your picture to several items at once and can add the same text, categories and tags to all these items at once.
  • Your tags should always be as descriptive and detailed as possible. You can add a lot of tags and you should use them! If you are lacking creativity (like me) use a thesaurus to find synonyms.
  • Join groups on Facebook that let you share your links and use them!
  • Share new products on Twitter and your own Facebook wall. You can also use many other social networking and bookmarking sites.
  • In case you still have your default royalty percentage to 10%, why not increase it slightly to 10.1%? This way, the customer only has to pay a few cents more but you earn a few more cents royalty. This can make a difference over a longer period of time!
  • Use traffic exchanges (manual or automatic) to increase views on your shop or specific products.

I will update this list whenever I find something new. In case you do have more ideas, please feel free to share them in the comment box. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
