I finally have the proof how to skyrocket your sales on Society6 and it’s the theory I have been testing on and off for quite some time. Actually, I tried to do this since I had started with Society6 back in 2014.

Are you ready for this unveiling?

Are you ready to invest a few minutes daily to increase your earnings?

Yes, of course you do need some investment. But you do NOT (I repeat NOT!) invest any money! You do not need to pay for advertising, you do not need how to use Facebook ads, you just need a few minutes of your time. Works best if you try to do this daily!

The key are the promotions 💖 and I can finally present you some proof!

Selling your art on Society6 has always been hard – as it is with every print on demand website, to be honest. You need to get exposure for your art and products, you need your designs to get ranked high in search results. Ugh… you can have the BEST designs, photos and artwork in the world. They are rather useless with no one seeing them.

Let’s take a look at the first screenshot and let me explain what we see:

On this screenshot you can see my sold items from September to December 2019. It is not zero but it is not really good either. One sale in December, November and October each. I did do lots of pinning to Pinterest during that time because hey, Q4 should mean increased sales due to Christmas… well, as you can see social media like Pinterest did not really help me. One sale per month is not worth the hassle.

But can you see September? 4 sales during that month – what happened? What did I do differently? I can tell you: During September 2019, I concentrated on exchanging hearts (promotions) on Society6 with my favourite Facebook group.

You post a link (use your curator link!) to the group and receive promotions and sometimes even comments from the other group members. And then it is VITAL to return the favour! Give and take! You can also comment to other people’s posts after promoting them – with your design link added to get the favour returned. Receive 15 hearts (comments count, too!) to get your work added to the public Society6 search engine and to receive a chance to be added to Houzz where it can find more potential buyers.

During January 2020, I did not do much promotion of any kind and I had zero sales. I was dumbfounded and had to change that. I made February 2020 my “Society6 promotion month”. I exchanged hearts almost daily, I worked my Facebook group a$$ off and guess what? Let’s take a look at the result:

BAM! $33 in total and we still have a few hours to go 😉

So if you are really looking for tips and advice how to use social media to increase your Society6 earnings, this is all you need! Join our Society6 sharing group and exchange hearts with us 💖

This post is not only useful for Zazzle sellers, it does also apply for Cafepress, Etsy, Ebay or any other website or product you want to promote.

Most Twitter members make one simple but huge fault:

They join Twitter, tweet some messages and are crushed that their “promotion” does not have any effect.

If this sounds like your experience, you did it all wrong.

Sorry to say this but Twitter is an easy website for free promotion but you need to do it the right way!

It has no use sending out tweets and then hoping to sell something. Twitter is a social website, so you need to be social!

What you have to do in order to generate success through Twitter:

  1. Find Twitter users with similar interests and related tweets. Use the search box on tip of the Twitter page and search for a relevant topic, e.g. Zazzle. Then follow some users who share the same interest.
  2. When you see related tweets (e.g. about Zazzle), click on “retweet” and share their tweets! That way you spread their word and most Twitter users are very likely to go to your profile, follow your tweets and retweet what you had to say!
  3. When you receive a notification from Twitter that someone followed you, check out their profile and follow them back!
  4. When you receive a notification that some has re-tweeted a tweet than it is your duty to retweet one of their tweets!

Once you get the ball rolling, your “circle” of retweeting users will grow and so will your influence!

I myself make it a daily habit to check my emails for notifications and then I actively follow back and retweet.

What I do not like at all are people who do not return the courtesy of re-tweeting. They got it all wrong, are probably still hoping for some success through Twitter and will eventually fail.

So, let’s all retweet and grow our success together, shall we?
