May has been an exceptionell month on Society6, my sales have increased a lot!

I have had a few duplicate sales with various (frame) sizes or colors, I will only share items once per design:

And I even had another curator sale which earned me 15% for referring:

April 2015 was a rather successful month on Society6 and I even referred two sales and earned 15% extra due to the curator link πŸ™‚

These two are the sales I have referred:

Both works are really unique and beautiful pieces of art and I am very happy that I was able to refer these two sales!

And these are my own sales during April 2015 on Society6:

I was able to sell the Prismatic Palm wall clock three times during April with different handle and frame color combinations. And the LOVE photo from Philadelphia is also beginning to get more and more popular.

This article will feature a few ideas about what you could do with your first payment from Zazzle.

First of all, the road to your first Zazzle payment will be a rocky one. Zazzle is not a very beginner friendly site and its definitely not a “get paid to” site. Zazzle is a print-on-demand website that pays you a percentage (royalty) when you help them selling their products. If you are an artist or have photos you think are good enough, you can even design your own products and market them through Zazzle without any investment.

The payment threshold is $70 €50). Below that, you can still be paid once a year but they may deduct fees then. So it is important to earn more than $70 per year. This is not one of many articles about how to reach this goal and how to earn money with Zazzle. Nope, this article will collect ideas on what to do with the money you have earned from Zazzle.

Here are some ideas:

  1. One idea means to treat yourself or your whole family. Why not go to the movies or to a restaurant? Do something fun and spend it with your loved ones.
  2. You can use your earnings to pay for Zazzle products before reaching the payout limit. So you could get birthday or Christmas presents for zilch, nada, niente – for FREE. I know that many people like to collect Amazon gift cards over the year to cash them in for Christmas, so why not do the same with Zazzle?
  3. If your payment has been a bit more generous and you sell mainly photo products, why not invest the earnings in a better photo camera? That way you can ensure improved quality and keep earning more and more, don’t you think?
  4. For bigger earners (like me), why not save the earnings of a year for a small vacation or at least a weekend trip? In 2012, I have earned over $600 online with Zazzle and Gather. In 2013, I am trying to reach $1000.

Which idea do you like most and do you have any other ideas for our fellow Zazzlers?

 

The first half of 2013 is almost over, read more to see my sales of week 25.

The negative first: I had a total of 3 cancellations during week 25, I’d like to post them anyway:

Painted Ladies in San Francisco (Tilt & Shift) Square Wallclocks

I had been really, really happy about selling these two clocks. What a pity that they got cancelled!

And also this beautiful scenic post card got cancelled:

But now on with the successful sales. I sold 3 products which seems to not be much, but I had a ton of referral sales, so it evens out. Here are my direct sales:

This tropical scenic beach is “Rockly Bay” on Tobago. The first beach we had been to on our Caribbean cruise – swimming was not allowed 😦

Santa Monica Pier - Grey Sparkles Photo Edit Post Card

This is still one of my most popular designs on any item and I am working like mad on new versions (photo edits) of this photo.

Wuppertal Floating Train Refrigerator Magnet

This floating train is a famous unique method of public transportation in Wuppertal. I am also currently working in Wuppertal, so expect more photos of the trains, soon πŸ™‚

And now on with the massive referral sales I had. In total, I had 5 referral sales but 3 of them are not accessible anymore. Probably products that had been custom designed without being listed in the public shop. So here are the two you can look at:

Evil Flower Bug Vintage iPhone 4 Cover

Check out another iPhone 4S Cover at zazzle.com

I have no idea where this lead came from as I have never advertised this case, but it’s cute – in a creepy kind of way πŸ™‚

This photo definitely is unique and funny, don’t you agree?

So, what have you sold on Zazzle lately?

 

Hurray, finally another referral sale!

But first things first. I have sold two of my own products. The first one is a mug that goes to Fabienne in Munich, Germany:

Fabienne has earned me €1.29 EUR in royalty. Vielen Dank!

The second sale is a whole bunch of stationery – I have sold 150 sheets to Amanda in Petersburg, VA!

This huge sale has earned me $4.50 in royalty. Thanks for buying that much paper!

And then I also had a referral sale that earned me 15% royalty:

Beautiful vintage NYC Empire State iPhone 4 case

15% equal $3.24. Unfortunately, I don’t know who has bought it. But I am glad I could help a Zazzler selling something πŸ™‚
