Tag and Description Help Please
Posted: Sunday, December 15, 2019 5:14:25 PM
I have been using this slow time to update some of my other designs.
THere is one design that I think is just beautiful but it doesn't get very many views and I don't believe it has sold.
I have it on many different items from home decor to paper items.
I think the problem must be with the title, description or tags.It is just too pretty to be a problem with the actual graphic.
Suggestions please.

I would take "three dimensional look" out of the title. I would write the title as "Daisy floral pink maroon heart with monogram key chain" as title.

I would go with mostly multi word tags, as they any word can be combined with any other word in tags.

delicate daisy flowers, pink flowers, maroon floral, beautiful open heart, romantic monogram, lovely feminine artwork and so on

Good suggestion. Randysgrandma, what the suggestion uses is the idea of picking out those words a customer might search on. Sometimes it's truly difficult to get into the minds of customers, and it seems particularly difficult with a design that contains flowers and hearts because they're popular, meaning searching on those two things brings up many thousands of designs. You still have to have those words, but you have to make room for what's unique in your own design.

Yeah, it's one of my own big struggles too.

add coral to the pink... it's a very trendy color right now.

Also if you can incorporate "flourishes" in there somewhere.

It's a lovely design! I agree with everyone's recommendations. I'd think about adding some words like girly, romantic, pretty, love, lacy... Also I'd use "initial" in addition to "monogram."

I notice that no collection comes up underneath it on the product page. Do you have all of the products with this design in a collection? That can help to cross-pollinate your views.

I would also consider putting it on products with a more specific purpose. Like maybe design a wedding suite built around this image. That keychain would be a great bridesmaid's gift. Maybe add a name & the word "Bridesmaid" in curved text around the bottom? How about a "save the date" card with a cutout inside the heart for the couple's photo? You could build invitations, and all sorts of wedding décor around that image.

How about putting it on valentine's day stuff... a party invitation, a "be mine" card, something like that. Maybe do a version that has "x+Y" inside the heart and/or "joanie loves chachi" beneath it. It would also work well for a girly birthday suite - invitations, plates, napkins, party favors etc.

I think for general merchandise you might do well marketing it for girls rather than women... so things like school notebooks, backpacks, guitar cases, etc - and I'd put a name underneath the heart in addition to the monogram.

Off the top of my head, those are my thoughts. It's really beautiful, so it would be a shame for it not to sell!


ETA: I noticed that your description is full of wonderfully descriptive words. Remember that Zazzle's algorithm doesn't search the description, so maybe try to incorporate some more of those words into your keyword phrases.

zingerbug,
I do have a tee shirt with that design and the word "Bridesmaid" (customizable) it has sold once. I do have a keychain with a photo that can be customized. I gave up on the photo idea when I realized how hard it is to fit a picture in a heart shaped frame without having the upper point of the heart looking like it is sticking in the top of the head.
Your other hints are something I will consider; Good ideas.
I did put some in my "Love" collection and in my "What's in a Name" collection for customizable names and monograms. But I don't have a collection for that specific design. something to consider since I do have the same design in a different color.
Thanks everyone. I never thought about hearts and flowers being so common, but did realize that the tag "daisy" seems overused.
Time to put my thinking cap on and give it another try. I don't want to give up on that particular design yet.

I've a small collection of heart-shaped frames, but they're meant to be used for pets. I tried using them with people and the point ends up like a dagger through a person's skull just as you've indicated. If it were easy for a customer to move a photo within a frame, it would be a whole different ballgame.

All good ideas, I think!

I'd change the marketing view to the larger size so you can see the intricate design better, because it doesn't cost that much more.

Also the preview is showing the top of the graphic trimmed off for some reason - when I went in the editor and clicked "crop" it suddenly expanded to show everything, so maybe that needs to be adjusted and reposted?

I'd move the word intricate out of the title, as well as "open" to make room for more commonly used descriptive words. Maybe add something about 'swirls' which is how clients would commonly describe that style to me for custom work in the past.
It could be considered vintage which is a good keyword
Dusty Rose Pink Flower Heart with Swirls Monogram Keychain

keywords
Pink, Dusty Rose, Floral, Vintage, Cute, Monogram, (maybe because of the darker letter?) Burgundy, Romantic, Daisy, intricate (or ornate), swirls.

It also looks like a good "Mother's day" gift idea " for mom"

maybe on a mug or a card...if you don't already have them.


If it was mine I would tag it with "pretty feminine floral design" "coral pink daisy flowers" "monogrammed jewelry for her" "fancy heart with flourish" for mom on Mothers day" "sweet love motif"

That is 6, I would try to come up with 4 more...

Bwahahaha! Well, that could be appropriate for certain people! Happy
Seriously though, it would be tremendously helpful if it was easier for customers to position a photo within a frame. There's just no good way to do it with the top layer always active thing.

Even when you temporarily hide or lock the top layer, you can't grab the layer beneath it. VERY annoying!

I did figure out a sort of heart frame after considering the heart problem this morning:

Purdy, maybe, but not at all my usual style. I'm blaming it on RandysGrandma.

If the Products in the "Other designs you might like" panel on your Published Product Page aren't similar to the one you've Published, you might look at those for Title/Description/Tag suggestions. The Designs/Products in that panel would typically be similar/competitive.

Great idea. I will try that. Lately I have been using a thesaurus to help me when I run out of ideas for tags.
Based on what another girl did in Medical Administrative Assistant school. When she wrote an essay she wrote the required amount of pages by saying the same thing over again and just using different words. She got an A on our final paper that way

When I zoom in on that product it looks like part of the design is cut off.

Are you talking about the keychain with the heart design. None of it is cut off. That is the whole design; I put them all in a collection hoping to get some views going.

I actually see what Monoshoppe means...zoom in and look at the top and the bottom where you can see a white cut off where it looks like the flourishes should have continued. do you see it?

on the original post.

Yes I do see it. I will see if I can figure out what happened. I think I may have been something I made long ago in Quick Create and clicked the fill which sometimes cuts off part of the design. I had to zoom in on the product to see it. Thanks for the heads up


I fixed and set the old one to direct only with a note about the correction, and took it out of my collection and put the new one in.
Thanks for the sharp eyes.

Looks great! I tweeted it for you.
