Some time ago, in a lifetime far away, I created an account on a site called Zazzle.
When I first joined Zazzle (in 2003), it was a site for creating photo greeting cards, T-shirts, mouse pads and coffee mugs. It has since grown into a social community that allows you to create customized items ranging from shoes to postage stamps and everything in between.
I used it mainly because I was playing around with photography and creating greeting cards, coffee mugs and such. I completely forgot all about the account until I received 3 emails yesterday telling me that three of my items were sold. Huh????
Earning Zazzle Money
The items I created on Zazzle were an experiment and I never actively promoted them. They’ve been sitting on the Zazzle site forgotten and ignored. After receiving the email I went to the site and was amazed at how different everything looked.
I guess I should spend some time sprucing up my Zazzle presence and adding a few items that don’t make me cringe with embarrassment when I look at them (It’s amazing how we mature and develop and get so embarrassed when we look at our earlier work). Unfortunately, I don’t have the time right now to spruce it up. It’s been embarrassingly unattractive for so many years, another few months won’t kill me.
The purpose of this Post?
I went through all of the above verbiage to say this:
- If you have a hint of creativity and would like to sell a few items on Zazzle, as a freelance writer, you have the ability to write about and promote anything.
- If you refer someone else to the site and they either sign up to create an account or purchase something as a result of your referral you make money from the referral.
