How To Achieve Your Dream Zazzle Earnings Goal

How To Achieve Your Big Zazzle Earnings Dream Goal by Elke Clarke Top Zazzle Earner

Do you have a big dream Zazzle earnings goal? If you don’t, you should set a goal for yourself. Why? Because if you don’t have a big goal, you will not achieve it. When I first started on Zazzle, I set my ultimate dream goal of 1 million dollars in Zazzle earnings. It seemed a crazy high amount, especially since I was brand new, just learning and had not made a single sale. But I knew someday I would achieve my million dollar goal. I just needed to do the work and put in the time to set up my Zazzle business correctly. That is why, with my ultimate goal in mind, over the years, I set smaller achievable stretch goals, each of which would bring me closer to my final big Zazzle earnings goal.

On my journey to Zazzle success, I learned many valuable lessons of what to do and what not to do. Keep reading to find out what you can do today to start achieving your big Zazzle earnings goal.

How To Achieve Your Dream Zazzle Earnings Goal

In 2017, I reached my million dollar Zazzle earnings goal. Crazy!!! Right??? I am not telling you this to brag. No. I am telling you this because I want you to know it is possible to achieve a goal that seems unrealistic. I want to be clear. Zazzle is NOT a get rich quick scheme. Absolutely not. It took me 10 years of hard work, many failures and overcoming many obstacles before I made 1 million dollars on Zazzle.

But now that I have achieved my goal, I am proud of my accomplishments and feel empowered to set even higher goals for myself.

I hope my story inspires you to do the same.

Do What You Love and Actually Earn a Living

Imagine doing what you love, being creative, and earning online income from Zazzle. It is possible. Many people who sell their designs, photography and art on Zazzle earn good money.

But it can also sometimes seem impossible to make money on Zazzle. Why? Because we are creative people and don’t have business training or in some cases don’t even like anything to do with business or selling. So when we don’t see sales we think it will never work. Disappointment sets in and we give up, thinking that we gave it our best shot and nobody wants to buy our beautiful work.

But here is the secret. You must run your Zazzle store like a business to be successful. Keep reading to find out what that means.


My Zazzle Earnings Goal Journey

When I started on Zazzle, I figured I could just upload my art and photography and people would magically buy my products.

I never considered the business side of things. Can you imagine? I did not even think about whether the customers even wanted what I was offering. With no plan to achieve this wild goal I had set for myself or any realistic expectations on when I could achieve my goal, I was destined to fail right from the start. I was unorganized, without direction, yet figured I should just make money because my stuff was great and I had it on many products for sale.

Over the years, after much disappointment, I realized I was so wrong.

I learned that in order to achieve my big Zazzle earnings goal, I needed a plan of action, realistic expectations, a better understanding of how things worked, in addition to believing I could achieve my big Zazzle earnings dream goal.

Use a Proven Plan of Action to Achieve Your Zazzle Earnings Goal

Over the years, I made a lot of mistakes and did not see the earnings I wanted. It was only once I had developed a complete plan of action that I began to see big increases in my earnings. I went from making $2,380 in 2008 to $37,000 in 2009. (See the graph below.)

That was when I knew my plan worked. I kept seeing dramatic increases in my Zazzle earnings every year after that.

My plan involved making sure I actually took action and worked hard but also in a smart way.

I also addressed 5 key areas that are vital to the success of my Zazzle business. These areas are planning and  set-up, mindset and goals, product production, promotion and analysis. This became my 5 Step Profit Plan, because by implementing the 5 steps, I started to see big profits, as you can see in the chart above.

My profit plan has worked for me to this day. In fact, for the past 6 years, I have earned over 100K every year.

My 5 Step Profit Plan even helped me keep my income up after the Volume bonus change at Zazzle in 2013. It truly has stood the test of time.

Set Realistic Expectations

If you set your Zazzle earnings goal as 1 million dollars in your first year, you would fail. If you take up running today, you can not run a marathon tomorrow and expect to win or even complete the race. You have to be realistic. You will eventually achieve your goal to win a marathon but you first have to run a shorter distance and then gradually work your way up to your higher goal.

This process is exactly the same with earning money on Zazzle. It takes hard work and time. You need to have many things in place in order that sales become consistent and continually increase.

How Long Did It Take Me To Start Earning 5-Figures?

It took me 2 years to achieve an income of $2,380. It was only in my third year that I earned $37,000.

Today, I think I would not take me so long to see a more substantial income, because now Zazzle has a wider reach, more product types to sell and there are more people who shop online compared to 10 years ago.

My Advanced Zazzle Course Member is on Track to Earn 5-Figures in His First Year

In fact, it is possible to reach $2,500 in 5 months, because one of my Advanced Zazzle course students has achieved this. Brandon, started the course in July 2017 and by the end of November he had made $2,500. He achieved this with a brand new store and followed my 5 Step Profit Plan (which is taught in my 30 Day Profit Plan Advanced Zazzle Course). At first he made a few sales. Then in month 3, he made a few hundred dollars. After this, his sales took off and continue to grow.

With his Zazzle store and business set up properly using my 5 Step Profit Plan (planning and set-up, mindset and goals, product production, promotion and analysis), Brandon is on track to reach $10,000 in his first year after taking the course. With the right steps to follow, you can begin to see how you can reach your Zazzle earnings goal.

Dream of the Possibilities

Do you have a big Zazzle earnings goal?

You will only achieve the goals you set for yourself. So why not set a big goal?

What would have happened if I had not set this big goal for myself? Or no goal at all? I certainly would not have had the opportunity to share my experiences and mentor you, like I am doing now.

I could have never dreamed of all these amazing things that have come from my setting that big Zazzle earnings goal so many years ago. But I am so glad they did. Now I can dream of even bigger possibilities.

Life is too short to dream small.

Dream Big!

You just never know what you can accomplish until you try.
