I recently created these Zazzle products.
I have gotten a few questions about using Zazzle and making money with it.
I thought I’d answer a few of those questions.
- Do you actually make money with Zazzle?
-Yes, but you get out of it what you put into it. If you write for sites like Squidoo or HubPages, you’ll know that you need quality content, time and increasing quantity to make money with it. The same goes for Zazzle. The more products you have, the better. You can expect to make decent money with thousands – yes, thousands – of products. Sure, you can make money with less than that and it happens. But it’s a bit of luck combined with quality products.
- How long does it take to make money with Zazzle?
-Again, time is probably the most important factor. You need to expect that having 100 products might make you a few cents if you’ve only been at it a few months. The longer you’re on the site and if you update your subdomain and products regularly, you can expect your earnings to increase over time.
- What sorts of products do well?
-It depends, actually. I think it’s more dependent upon how well you market your product. You have to stay true to what you’re good at and, in time, people will look for your products because they’re uniquely you. For example, if you’re a photographer, and you suddenly start doing cartoon-like products, you might actually want to open a different store. Having all sorts of different types of genres of products can be counter-productive because people might not know what to expect. No, this isn’t a hard and fast rule. However, I personally have two stores: one where I create fractals and one where I feature my photography, and even one that has my paintings-turned-into-pictures. That last one doesn’t do well, though, because it’s hard to churn out new paintings all the time.
- Should you have more than one store?
-If you have vastly different products, it’s a good idea to have different stores. But, it’s not a hard and fast rule.
I am really enjoying Zazzle. It allows me to use my photography to create beautiful and artistic products.
