Zazzle and Patience

I know a number of us here also have zazzle stores. I love making things on zazzle and for a long time I wasn't selling anything. 2013 ends my third year on zazzle. Just thought I'd share with you how things are going. I don't remember exactly when I opened my store, but my very first earning came in Nov 2011. I earn with both sales of my own designs and referrals on squidoo and wizzley articles. Here are my figures:

2011 - $3 in sales

2012 - $5 in sales and $43 in referrals

2013 - $107 in sales and $17 in referrals

While I'm sure many of you are doing a lot better than I am, I do not spend much time on this and at the same time, I am pleased with the trend. If I were to promote my products more, I would likely increase this. Toward that end, I just opened a facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/by.oz.designs .

How are others doing on zazzle?

Here's wishing all of us a wonderful 2014!

Congrats. I haven't made anything through Zazzle yet, but I tend to forget about it. I don't have a store on there yet, but it's part of my 2014 plans.

Good for you Sheri.  I "liked" your FB page and I think you will see some sales from it.  I have three FB pages for different stores and it does seem to help, although I don't use it like I should.

While I am not going to post my earnings, I will say that in 2007 when I first began at Zazzle I think I made $30 total.  The next year I made around $600 and the following year it doubled.  After that it kept going up to the point that I was making very good money.  I was also working at it approx. 10 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Over this past year my income has decreased substantially since July, when Zazzle made some big site changed and also took away our Volume Bonus incentive.  I feel like I have stumbled backwards by years and now I'm starting over again.  It's just the nature of having a job like this.  Nothing is guaranteed. 

As you have said, if you promoted more you would see more sales.  It's nearly impossible to have your stuff found on the Zazzle site alone.  The same stores / designers seem to always get those coveted landing page spots, so the rest of us must fend for ourselves.

I also wish you and everyone here all the best in the new year ahead!
