Be inspired and make money from your designs
If you have artistic tendencies, there is now a fantastic way to make money from home by turning your creations into commercial products. A new online store offers budding designers the opportunity to upload their designs and have them printed on a wide range of products and it will market them for you – all for free. When they sell, you make money. You can design everything from handbags, hoodies, t-shirts, sweatshirts, kids clothing, iPhone cases, greetings cards and even household products like mugs – the list of products you can create is continually growing.
Designing your own products made simple
Create your designs as an image, upload them to Zazzle and then choose from a wide range of products to have them printed on. It’s entirely up to you what designs you create – you can simply upload your most artistic photos, create simple texts designs or go the whole hog with a program like Adobe Photoshop where you can create stunning designs and add text, as well as applying a range of interesting special effects. If you’re not too computer savvy, you can simply photograph your art work or scan it to create the image. You don’t even need to do this – Zazzle has a built in designer which features thousands of images as well as a text editor for you to create your own designs.
Create your own free online store and kick start your brand
Perhaps one of the best features of Zazzle is that you can set up an online store and kick start your own brand. This is a very easy process to go through and there are a range of shop templates for you to choose from and customize. For those who are more technically able, you can even write the css code for the store design and customize it completely.
There are also useful tools like widgets which means you can display your Zazzle store or designs on other websites or blogs that you own.
It costs absolutely nothing to set up and get started
The best thing, of course, is that Zazzle is totally free. No set up costs, no accounts, nothing. Quite simply, when you create a product, they tell you how much it costs and then ask you to add your own royalty on top. How much is entirely up to you. That’s it.
Enormous market waiting for your designs
Will you make money? They have over 25 million visitors a month and growing and have products for many niche markets. In the end its down how well your designs work, but certainly, Zazzle take a great deal of the hassle out of setting up. And don’t underestimate the chance of sending all your Facebook and Twitter friends in the direction of your store.
Just think of it – instant access to 25 million customers, no start up costs, no raw materials to purchase, no stock to buy and sell and a massive range of products to put your designs on, everything from t-shirts, mugs, greeting cards, bags, ipad cases, posters, fridge magnets. You name it.
