Zazzle is a great website for individuals to design and customize all types of merchandise that can be sold on the site. Zazzle has thousands of products that you can customize and post for sale. Each user is assigned their own “storefront.” Zazzle does everything for you. When you design an item and post it for sale you set the commission you want to receive. I have had some success with Zazzle selling photos that I’ve taken and turned into wall art, postcards, t-shirts and other products.
This site is particularly great for those of you who want to tap into a niche market. For example, there is a niche market section that features products geared towards nurses, grandparents, republicans, democrats…and on and on. The possibilities are endless.
Graphic designers can make a lot of money developing and selling a great design, but the site also offers great design tools that can be used by someone who isn’t trained in graphic design to make great products to sell.
As with anything, the real key to success is how you market your storefront on Zazzle, and the number of products you offer. They have good tips and they even offer an email newsletter with great design suggestions, hot niche markets and marketing tips.
This site is worth checking out. Spend some time browsing through and then sign up and get ready to sell!
