How has zazzle changed your life? *
It has allowed me to work from home in my own time. It also allows me to travel and be there to help out friends and family when they need me, since my work schedule is easily rearranged...
Zazzle is a... *
  • Hobby
  • Part Time Job
  • Full Time Job
  • Addiction
What advice would you share with a friend or family member if they wanted to join zazzle? *


your shopid will be your url can you read it out loud and people know exactly how it will be spelled? is it easy to spell or write? does it sound like it looks? while "Teez4U" may look and sound like a fun play on words when you say it out loud to a friend or stranger they may hear "Teas for You" and think you sell tea....or "Tees for you" a golfer paradise with billions of golf tees...or even worse "Tease for you" a new naughty nudie site...

So once you have thought about it and picked an appropriate is time to add product


read everything and anything you can about copyright, trademark, and intellectual property laws...breaking these could mean not only time lost when products are removed but big law suits

Decide how to organize your shop....having to move everything around later is a huge undertaking. listen to advice given by other shopkeepers and read WHY they choose to organize one way over the other, yes some of it will be complete opposite of each other, but you need to hear both sides of the issue then decide which is better for you based on why those people do things the way they do them.

decide - do you want to be an artist and stick to your artistic integrity even if it means less sale, or do you want to be a business person and know your art may not sell in the ideal format as you want it but you will be drawing a paycheck....this will help you choose if you are going to offer just a small selection or a large one...

Read about SEO and make sure you follow the advice from the beginning as you write descriptions tags and best advice in this is that search engines cannot see pictures you have to tell them about the picture...using as many words as you can

now you have your store and you are adding products so it is time to start getting sales...


read everything you can about self promotion...

there are a lot of ways to get promotion free...some are beneficial some can actually hurt you...learn everything you can before you start

What other PODs do you use? *
  • Zazzle
  • Skreened
What do you do when you are not zazzling? *
I love to travel and take photographs, but then that all leads back to zazzle since i sell those photographs on my store!!
How many stores do you have on zazzle? *
25 or more
Which do you prefer and why? 1 Mega Store or Several Niche Stores *

I have both, 1 mega store for my original designs that do not have anywhere better to go....and then i have niche stores for different themes.

some of the themes are separated because they could be offensive to a selection of shoppers so i keep them separate.

some are separate for SEO reasons...a shop with just 100 designs with a very closely tied set of keywords will appear to search engines to be an authority in that field and will therefore rank higher in a search engine on that topic then another store that also has 100 designs in that field but also has 10,000 designs in other niches so the keywords are more diluted.
