|What advice can you give to someone who wants to become a proseller? *|| |
Make quality, unique products. Learn to make templates that work correctly. Learn to layer designs - you don't have to know PhotoShop, there are free programs. I use Paint[dot]net. Work on having quality blogs or other places to advertise off Zazzle. These are the things I've had to learn over my 3 1/2 years of working here and it does take time, but ProSeller is not hard to reach.
|How many stores do you have? *|| |
|What benefits do you see for choosing this number of stores? and what do you recommend for others who are just starting out on whether to choose 1 store or multiple stores? *|| |
I wish I didn't have the 7 stores I have. I work most on only a couple of them at any given time. If I had known when I started what I know now, I would have one store (maybe 2 or 3 at most) broken down into easy to find sections for the other niche items. Once a store begins to grow it's harder to keep up with the others and I spend about 60 hours a week working on Zazzle.
|What types of advertising do you do? *|| |
|What types of advertising do you recommend for someone just starting out and why? *|| |
Squidoo isn't listed above, and that is one place that is very helpful for advertising. I use it to show off my best selling and new designs and update it as I go. It's very easy to use as well. I advise adding some info to the Squidoo pages and not just slapping up designs. Talk to the customer. I do not pay for any advertising.
|Not talking dollar wise, just volume & frequency of sales do you... (select all that apply, some answer may be contradictory based on seasonal sales) *|| |
|What product in your store are you most proud of or what product in your store is your favorite? Include link to product page and why it is your favorite. *|| |
I don't really have a favorite item, but I love flowers and worked hard on this design. I haven't advertised it much so no sales yet, but I think it has potential. I like the invitations because the paper type can easily change the look of each design.
