As many of you know, Pete has had Pro Seller status with Zazzle, the business partner for our online store, Your Shop of Shops, for several years. Recently we’ve noticed that Zazzle has made a big leap in the external marketing efforts by expanding into different channels. In Minneapolis, we’ve heard radio spots for Zazzle, for example. Or, if you’ve ever purchased anything from a Zazzle store, you may have recently noticed smarter email communications from the company that are more customer-centric. If you’ve had other business partner relationships, you may find it as amazing as we do that Zazzle helps sellers with marketing in all these different ways at no cost!
One of the best ways Zazzle helps sellers is by prominently featuring their designs on the Zazzle home page and other landing pages within the Zazzle site. With thousands of sellers competing for the customer’s attention, an individual Zazzle store can be lost in all this activity. When Zazzle selects your design as one of “Today’s Best” your product gets center stage prominence out of the thousands of products that are created every day.
This morning we received notification that one of Pete’s iPhone case designs (available for Android, too), Vibrant Pink and Purple Floral Bells, is going to be featured as a “Today’s Best” design within the next few days. He’s been busy adding hundreds of new designs in the iShoppe in our store in the past several weeks.
There are several new iPhone case styles that have just been added. As well, new Android cases for the Samsung Galaxy and other phones are available. Pete anticipates with all the Christmas cellphone gifting there will be folks who will want new cases. It’s true, whenever you get a new phone, you need a new case. Sometimes you just want to change out your existing case for an update. When I got my new iPhone 5, I ordered the Pastel Liquid Dots iPhone case because I liked the three dimensional effect of the design. Pete ordered a new iPhone case with a skull design.
Currently, we have over 15,000 total phone cases available in our Zazzle store – 15 different phone case styles. This means if you’re looking for an iPhone case, you’ll find it rendered in over 1000 different graphic designs. When Pete adds a design, he makes sure it is available for as many different phones and styles of cases as possible, using the same techniques he shares in the “More Products, Less Time” e-book.
As we’ve mentioned before, working with Zazzle helped us reach our goal to diversify income and become location independent. Whether your goal is to supplement or replace traditional income, or express your creative gifts via attractive products for sale, or maybe a little bit of both, Zazzle is a quick and easy way to see results. Pete’s Quick Start e-book can help you have your very own Zazzle store up and running in a couple of hours! With all the new ways Zazzle helps sellers, now is an even better time to get started!
