Zazzle is a wonderful site which lets you customize t-shirts, keychains and mugs among other things. What is really great about it is that you can then sell your designs and earn a big commission on the sales.
The first thing you need to do is open an account with Zazzle and then start coming up with ideas. If you really want to maximize your sales you should look to cover as many different categories as possible. As well as attracting different types of customers, this also means that your stuff will be easier for people to find as they search online.
As well as taking time over the images and designs you choose, you also need to look carefully at the product sizes and types that you put them onto. The important thing here is to try and picture who would want to buy your finished product. Asking a few friends to have a look and give their honest opinions can help you reach the final decision.
With your products now ready to go on sale, you need to decide upon the level of commission you are going to take from your internet sales. This is a rather delicate balancing act, as putting the price too high can lose you sales while making it too low could result in great sales figures but little profit.
The best thing to do is check out rival products to see what kind of price would be reasonable for what you are selling.
Now you have to see how many different products you are going to offer to the public. As many as possible without sacrificing the quality is the best approach. You should make sure that your gallery is nicely organized and easy to navigate, as this means that people who come across your products will be more inclined to search for other things that interest them.
The Zazzle site also has some pretty useful help features, and joining in with the community is a good way to make contacts and pick up tips and ideas. And, of course, your next step is to get word out about your fabulous products and let people come and see them and buy them.
