Latest Zazzle Sales

I have had a few successful sales on Zazzle this year so far, but overall my sales are so very disappointing.

I guess (hope?) this is all about promotion, should I be getting more of the right keywords in product titles and especially descriptions. I will have to think very carefully about keywords when adding new products and try to add more keywords as well as the simple desription of the image which I have been doing so far.

I shall also be promoting more heavily on certain social media sites. I need to consider which ones I shall be working with. I have a facebook page called Pastel Landscape Paintings which I am using to promote my main preoccupation, namely my pastel paintings. Why not slip over and take a look at my page and give me a like to keep up with postings.

Some of my sales this year have been:-

Tree and blue evening sky - pastel painting on Zazzle products

I hope that you caught my last post, I mentioned a new pastel painting which was available on Zazzle as a canvas print. I have now done as I promised and made it available on a range of products. I am really pleased with this painting and have used it as is and also after editing in photoshop. The edits are quite simple just colour and saturation but they do provide a series of products which I think may please a wide range of people. If those people were in the market for the products I am offering then that would make a very happy circumstance.

First of all, there is the original printed image on canvas:-

A poster of the same image:-

A pack of playing cards with a unique design on the back:-

A Greeting card, the messages can be personalised by customising the product:-

You can sell greeting cards , invitations, stamps and more on!

A post card, of course with the same design again:-

A throw pillow, just to provide a different image:-

I think by now you get the idea. If you like the image, I can probably design it onto any of the Zazzle products. Why not take a look at the whole range?

Some different edits next time around, perhaps. See you then.
