Hey there, amazing Zazzlepreneurs!
I know it's been a bit of a rollercoaster ride lately with all the changes Zazzle has thrown our way. From the latest platform updates to the increased requirements for designers, it feels like we've been pulled in a thousand different directions, away from what we truly love – designing and creating awesome products.
But guess what? You are not alone in this journey, as the Zazzlepreneurs (and me) have your back!
Let's talk about some of the challenges we've been facing.
The new covers and mockup requirements, the demand for video content, and the new need to curate collections – it's a lot of work! It can be frustrating when all you want to do is let your creativity flow, but it feels like you're buried in administrative tasks.
And let's not forget about those Editor's Picks.
They seem to have a mind of their own, don't they? The wedding invitation niche, in particular, has seen major shifts, with Editor's Picks dominating the pages and some of us feeling invisible if we weren't among the chosen few. It's disheartening when your best-selling spots suddenly vanish. Some top sellers have even reported massive income losses, with drops as significant as 75%. It's a tough pill to swallow when products that used to sell like hotcakes suddenly hit zero.
The struggle is real, and for many of us, Zazzle is our main source of income, the means by which we support our families and pay our bills. That's why it's a huge cause for concern.
But here's the silver lining – we are in this together. I've brought together a community of Zazzlepreneurs who are facing these challenges head-on.
I'm actively working on strategies to ethically overcome these hurdles and I am sharing my insights.
