Beginners Zazzle Course by Diamond ProDesigner is Now Available 3 pages: [1] 2 3
Posted: Saturday, December 03, 2016 9:26:44 AM
Hi Everyone

For those of you who do not know me, I am a Diamond ProSeller. A few years ago I decided to share my Zazzle earnings results to inspire others who wanted to achieve similar goals.

I wanted people to know that, if I can do it, they can too.

Over the past few years, I have been truly honored that so many of you have allowed me to privately make suggestions and answer your questions.

Many of you wanted up-to-date, hands on video instructions, on how to get set up on Zazzle and feel confident that your efforts were going to pay off.

I have designed my course so that you get all of that and more in an easy to do, 7 day video course.

My course for beginners is available for purchase until December 17, 2016 at 50% off, as an introductory offer. "7 Days to Success with Elke Clarke : A Beginners Guide on How to Make Money on Zazzle"

If this link does not work, go to my website at elkeclarke dot com to get more information.
You can also email me at elke @ elkeclarke dot com.

Thank you for your time,
Elke

I am finding this course very helpful. It's very interesting and useful to see the way you organize your work flow among products. You also show very clearly how to add titles, descriptions and tags. After being overwhelmed by the choices here, I now feel like I can make better decisions about choosing a niche and the products I put in it. Looking forward to more from you.

Thank you sbclark!

It has been a week since I launched the course and I have had some great feedback from people who purchased.

I wanted to give everyone a few updates in case you are thinking of enolling in the course, but not sure when to do it:

1. I am only going to have the course available for purchase until December 17, 2016 at midnight EST at the 50% off price as an introductory offer.

2. If you enroll now you will have unlimited access to the course in 2017 and beyond
(as long as it is still possible for me to make updates)

3. I will be updating the step-by-step product creation videos with the new product design tool as soon as Zazzle is finished making changes.

4. You can do the course NOW by switching the new design tool "Off" under:
Profile / settings / advanced settings / Zazzle Labs / On or Off

5. People who signed up for the course in 2016, will have access to all the new videos in 2017, showing how to use the new design tool.


It makes sense to get the course now, because you will receive future updates and you will have taken advantage of the one time, never to be offered again, 50% off price.

You can email me at elke @ elkeclarke dot com if you have questions

Thanks
Elke

Hi Everyone
There is only one week left before the cart closes on my Beginners Zazzle Course.

People are loving the course.

It helps beginners stop feeling overwhelmed.

They are spending less time searching for answers on the forum because the course covers so many of the basics.

If you want to run your Zazzle store as a business, then the Beginners Zazzle Course is a great investment to get you set up for success.

You can click here to get more information or visit my website at elkeclarke dot com.

For those of you who do not know who I am, I started out like you back in 2007. It took me a long time to figure things out, but now I consistently make a 6-figure income every year from sales from my Zazzle stores.

In fact, I reached the 100,000 US dollar earnings mark even before the Black Friday sales.

I am telling you this only because some people think it is not possible. I am proof that it is possible. In fact, I have made a 6-figure income from Zazzle for the past 5 years in a row.

Zazzle has so many opportunities for all of us. It is an amazing platform with such great people working at Zazzle who are always improving and expanding, creating more and more opportunities for us designers.

I want you to have the same opportunity that I have had, in being successful on Zazzle.

I have taken my knowledge and experience and created the course as a roadmap for people who want to get set up quickly and know how to move forward to be successful on Zazzle.

In my course, "7 Days to Success with Elke Clarke: A Beginners Guide on How to Make Money on Zazzle" I do my best to give you the knowledge I use, even now, to generate my Zazzle earnings.

In 7 days with this course, you can be set up and feel confident to move forward on Zazzle.

Elke

Sounds very intersting! But too expensive for me :/
Posted: Monday, December 12, 2016 5:34:34 PM
The poster has exceptional designs.

Has zazzle featured you,poster? Or are all your sales from organic searches on Zazzle or Google search. Have you paid for advertising? Is your work generally at the top of results and when one clicks on a category?

When you first started earning a substantial amount was that all from you, without the help of stuff I mentioned above.

I can see why you have earned 6 digits. Based on how good your designs are.

Hi Steph

Zazzle featured me 2 years ago when I wrote a guest post on the Zazzle blog.

I have not been featured otherwise. By then I was already making 6 figures.

No, I have NOT paid for advertising.

My work is only at the top of the results because I have sold those items or it is labelled correctly in the tags and tiles to come up through an organic search.

Yes. I earned money without the help of paid advertising and being featured on Zazzle. It is only once every 8 months over the course of past 10 years that my product would be either on a Zazzle email or on the Zazzle home page. It was wonderful to be featured, but it did not result in significant sales.

Many affiliates have promoted my products because they are good sellers. So that helps make more sales.

Over the years, I have learned good design, titles, tags and what products and niches to design in.

My course touches on all of these things so that as a beginner you get a good start using my knowledge of what works.

You have until Saturday December 17, 2016 at midnight EST to enroll.

I bought it and like it; went through all the modules and picked up some tips. Do you have intentions of making a follow up Intermediate course? Your latest blog entry dated 12/14/2016 seems at the Intermediate level. More like that?
Posted: Wednesday, December 14, 2016 11:04:28 AM
Elke - I've really enjoyed your blog entries - especially the one from today. I too am interested in an intermediate, advanced course. When do you think that will be available?

A few topics that are of particular interest to me . . .
- what works for you as far as generating referrals - where/how do you get most of your referrals
- does having your own website help - in what way - do you suggest categorizing by product type or theme
- what type of social media has worked best for you
- I see you have a few stores, do you think it's better to have one main store or many for each niche
- your thoughts on Zazzle rank and what has worked for you?
- how do you use your sales reports (the CSV downloads)

I really appreciate you taking the time to put these courses together and am looking forward to the more advanced one. Thanks!

Hi
Thank you for purchasing the course. I am so happy you found it helpful.
Yes, an intermediate course is in the works.
There may also be a few different types of options, such as master classes or critiques.

I would love to receive specific details about what people want to learn.

You can also email me directly at elke @ elkeclarke dot com.

I am not always in the forum.

How do first time users login? I was not given a password nor will it allow me to create a password.

They email you your password. The email containing my password went to my spam folder.

The email with password was in my spam folder too. I have no idea how that happened. Look in your spam folder.

Yes. We are trying to resolve this small issue of people receiving their login information in their spam folder.
Sorry for the inconvenience

I wish you all the best for the holidays and may you have a healthy and happy new year!

All the bestLove
Elke

PS: ONLY 1 DAY LEFT TO SIGN UP Smile
Posted: Wednesday, January 04, 2017 3:27:47 PM
Definitely worth it. I am only just starting Day 4 of the lessons (yea, I'm slow), but from Day 1, even with things I thought I had figured out, there were some "I did not know I could do that" moments.

Still doing the lessons, but already I have learned stuff that will increase both quantity and quality of product I can make. Glad I signed up. Grin
Posted: Thursday, January 05, 2017 6:21:11 AM
I just pre-registered for the 2017 course coming soon. What I'm wondering is, will this course help an older, misguided for awhile person like myself?
Laughing

I tend to make too much stuff, and I can never find that narrowed down "niche" everyone seems to easily find! That's one of my biggest problems is narrowing down. I seem to always have a broken arrow when it comes to that.
Laughing

Thanks in Advance Elke! I know I'll learn a lot. Also, I'm still reading your blog in the meantime.

I found the course to be absolutely awesome - I'm in my second year and learned loads from Elke .. my problem is that I am a watercolor painter with over 100 paintings that I can upload and I don't know if I should create a 'monogram' niche or just make my products customizable for verbage .. i.e. "happy birthday" or "good luck" ... my head is spinning with ideas - I need someone to hold me down and tell me just concentrate on .................. (whatever it is) ... I am enjoying Zazzle - altho just a hobby .. but it is fun to see my paintings featured on so many featured products .. I don't do anything comical or whimsical so I don't have an audience for that. Smile Love Smile Love Smile Love THANKS ELKE!!!!! and to see encouragement from other 'newbies' ... Cheers! Sue ...

Thanks much Sue. I paint in watercolor too, my other store is http://www.zazzle.com/watercolorpets

Adding your dog's paw prints to your art sounds really creative and unique, and the result you achieved look fantastic! Maybe I should make a pattern out of my chihuahua's nose print, ha, ha.

Wishing you success with your stores and especially with your paw print designs, they look so cool

Thanks for chiming in Waterart and complimenting fellow Zazzlers, but please stay to the topic of my post.

You are welcome, Sue.

I am so glad I could help.

The course did cover researching niches and product types that sell well so you can at least use that information to narrow down your focus so that you see more sales from your efforts.

As you pointed out though, you are having fun. Sometimes products designed while you are on a roll and just having fun turn out to surprise you and sell. If you have the time, make all of your ideas on a few select product types and then if they sell expand your design onto more product types.

I will also be addressing this more in my advanced course.

Happy New Year
Elke

I can't wait to have you join the course. It covers how to narrow down to a niche so you will find that part especially helpful.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback of my course.

I designed the course specifically to help people new and not so new get insights to help them decrease the learning curve and see the potential for growth. You explained it so well. It is exactly what I wanted people to say after completing the course. You have given me the highest of compliments.

Thank you.

I wish you great success.

I am glad you did not put a time limit on finishing the course. I am afraid this 7 day course will turn out to be a 7+ week course for me. I need longer days!So much to do - so little time.
