|What advice that you received as a shopkeeper or learned from trial and error - would you like to pass on to someone else? *|
When I first started Zazzling a year ago I didn´t have any experience with POD sites and I didn't really grasp the whole customizing thing. Intially I made my products with my own background color fixed into the design, so they weren't very customizable and I may have lost sales. Now I try wherever I can to ensure that the customer can change the background color on my products, and I mention this in my product description. This definitely makes my products more easy to sell to those customers who like my product but want it in a different color.

|If you came into $100,000 tomorrow what would you do with it? *|
I would definitely want to do something to help animals where I live - conditions for animals in Spain are not generally very good and there are a lot of starving stray dogs on the streets. I would really like to open an animal shelter here, or at least give some major assistance to the only animal shelter in this area as they are really struggling.
|What is the last product you added to your store? *|
|What would you do if you saw an actor on TV wearing one of your shirts, or one of your products on the set of a popular Tv show or movie? *|| |
I would probably spontaneously combust with disbelief and excitement!!
|Do you have any formal art or computer training? *|| |
No, I taught myself
|What programs do you use to create your designs? What do you like about them? *|| |
I use Adobe Illustrator. This is the only program I've ever used seriously. I love it because I cannot draw very well freehand and this gives me the opportunity to create designs that people actually want to buy! It's been a painstaking learning process and I have definitely not found it easy, but now I have a skill that I'm proud of and it´s starting to make me some money. There are no job opportunities in the small rural village where I live, and so Adobe Illustrator and Zazzle have been a God send for me!
