I recently added some Chosokabe Mon Zazzle merchandise to my store with he help of the quick create facility of Zazzle. The reason is that I really want to put more products in the store and maybe create a bit more revenue. Quick create of Zazzle allows for the creation of a whole range of products in one go. One of the results is this example:
Earning a steady income from Zazzle is more difficult then I previous thought. I did some research in order to find some successful Zazzle sellers and I found one particular seller on which I’ll blog perhaps later. A couple of things I found out was that to be successful you really need more products than a couple of hundreds, more likely in the thousands is desired.
“Do you want to know more about Japanese family crests? Interested in Japanese mon and kamon? Use this affiliate link and buy this book about Japanese design motifs with more than 4000 examples. A great way to start your print-on-demand business.”
Another thing is marketing your products. Most often a successful seller has websites specifically to sell categories of products. Or a blog to attract traffic to your merchandise. The blog or website can also be used for advertisement, such as Google Adsense or sponsored links in the blog post itself.
Obviously my marketing is pitiful and I need to come up with a solution. This website is unfit for specifically marketing for instance Chosokabe Mon Zazzle merchandise. The website name and URL is not very interesting for this purpose. The design of the website is a bit old and not very suited for displaying product.
Therefor I was thinking to start a new website with a new URL, geared towards selling stuff on the internet. I’ll use a standard template, because I don’t want to waste time and energy in building a website. I just want to configure it. It’ll be only a small investment and a good experiment. It should be possible to create a steady income stream from the internet, so I’m not giving up yet.
