I may be an online entrepreneur now, but I haven’t always been one. Here is a bit of my background on how I became one of the top ProDesigners on Zazzle, and why I am now putting my energy and passion into reaching my goal to inspire millions.
My Success on Zazzle:
from 29 cents to a 6 figure annual income
It is hard to believe, but earning 29 cents as my first royalty through Zazzle changed the direction of my life!
A single sale that netted me 29 cents in royalties was the catalyst that I needed to give me the faith, courage, desire and drive to follow my dreams to build my own successful online business.
Through Zazzle, a print-on-demand company located in Redwood City, California, I have sold over $8 million worth of my designs on Zazzle and I have earned over $850,000 US to date (as of November 2016). I am living my dream of doing what I love while running a location independent business and earning a 6 figure annual passive income.
So why Zazzle? How does it work? This is my story.
I wanted time to spend with my kids and earn money doing what I loved!
Several years ago, I was at a cross-road in my life – I had a career in the pharmaceutical industry that was challenging and rewarding, but I also had a young family that I wanted to spend more time with. While I was advancing in my career, I was also missing out on attending my children’s dance recitals, karate practices and school plays.
My life was becoming an never-ending whirlwind of getting kids ready for school and daycare, going to meetings or traveling for work, rushing to pick the kids up from daycare, eating dinner with my family, getting kids ready for bed and school the next day, putting in some more time on company work and ultimately slumping into bed exhausted. As they say, “Wash, Rinse and Repeat”.
This is, unfortunately, the day-to-day existence of most modern families. Too many responsibilities and too little quality time.
I needed to find a new direction for my life, one that would allow me to set my own working hours, be able to work from anywhere there was internet access and still earn a decent income.
My Business Objective:
Design Once, Earn Forever
Although my university degrees were in science, I also loved being creative. I was an avid photographer and had some commercial success with my abstract paintings. I had always wanted to make money using my creativity, so I took a leap of faith. I quit my job and began building my online art business.
I showcased my paintings through online art gallery sites such as Yessy.com, Absolutearts.com and the SaatchiGallery.com and sold my art to customers all over the world.
But I was in a “make once, sell once” business. I could have tried to sell professional prints of my art work, but there was a substantial up-front cost in having high end limited edition prints manufactured.
I wanted to be in a “design once, earn forever” business with little to no inventory costs.
I had recently found an online site called Zazzle, because they were promoting artists through their ARTSPROJEKT, initiative. I discovered that Zazzle was also a “print on demand” company, where anyone could start a store for free, upload their designs onto products and earn royalties if they sold.
Zazzle would take care of the marketing, sales, production, order fulfillment, billing and customer service.
Wow! Zazzle was a perfect solution for me.
I make a virtual inventory on Zazzle, have no costs except for my internet and personal time, and receive a monthly payment for my royalties earned.
So I created my first Zazzle Store. I made my first Zazzle product using a picture of 2 polar bears – a button about Global Warming. Three days later, I sold one button and made a 29 cent royalty!
Make money online with Zazzle!
I was hooked on Zazzle!
If I could make $1 (or in this case, 29 cents), I could make more money! Even though this button was geared to a small niche market, I still sell these buttons every so often.
So far this button has provided me with royalty earnings of $43.89 since April 2007.
Since that day in 2007, I have built my business on Zazzle to the point where I consistently make a six figure annual passive online income from selling products with my my designs on them.
I had found my “design once, earn forever” solution.
My steady growth in earnings took time and effort
My purpose is to show you that with hard work and time I built a viable online business through Zazzle. As you can see from my yearly earnings, it took me a few years to catch on to what worked and what didn’t to achieve the level of income I desired.
This is a business opportunity which requires time and effort even though it is a passive income source. I want to make it clear that the rewards are many but it requires work and is not an easy, get rich quick scheme.
As you can see from the above graph, I made nothing in my first year, and it took me three years before I made over $50,000. I now have the expertise on Zazzle to consistently earn a 6 figure annual income online.
For the past 5 years, I have earned over $100,000 annually, with 2015 being my best year ever (earning over $175,000 US).
I have learned a great deal on how to make money on Zazzle. Now I would like to share that knowledge with you.
