I’ve also been getting the updates for soulbearing.com ready, so there will be more new art to purchase soon!!


When I began offering merchandise on zazzle.com about a year ago, I thought customers were likely only purchasing items printed with their own images, but I decided to post a few things anyway.  It didn’t cost anything, it was easy to set up, and at the very least it would be another forum in which to display some of my work.  Any publicity is good publicity; free publicity is fabulous.

Of course, I did order a couple of things first.  After all, if I’m adding my name to something, I want to make sure it’s good.  Plus, I needed an unusual gift for a family member anyway.  The folks at Zazzle do great work.  They’re fast, the quality is excellent, and when they made a minor mistake, they were quick to correct it.  (When a company handles such a large volume of transactions per day, there is bound to be the occassional error.)

I do not know what percentage of Zazzle’s customers are buying products with their own images, but I do know that many people also purchase the designs of artists and designers who offer items on Zazzle– when they can find the images.

With nearly 40 billion (yes, billion) products being offered on Zazzle, making sure people find a particular store or product is a challenge.  It helps to have the right category names & descriptions, product names & descriptions, and tags.

Since I’m not really so tech savvy, it took me some time to realize the importance of tags.  If the tags are good, more people will find it.  It’s that simple.

But adding tags manually is a chore; I think it could be made easier.  So, here is one of my Zazzle wishes:  When images are uploaded or edited, along with the areas to add the name and description for each image, include an area to add tags for each image.  This way, whenever a product is created with that image, the tags will be automatically pre-filled the same way titles and descriptions are.  (I’d also like to be able to pick categories for images the same way!) 

Also, it would be nice to have tags for store categories.  For example, one of my store sections is for floral images.  It would be simpler if I could select tags like “flowers, floral, floral photography” to be automatically added to all items in that category.

Call it laziness, but it would be a time saver, and time is money.  I have more ideas, but I am out of time for now.

You can support the artist (that’s me) by visiting http://soulbearing.com, where you can purchase original paintings and find links to customized merchandise on zazzle.
