Am I setting up my affiliate store and account correctly?
Posted: Thursday, January 09, 2020 4:43:14 AM
I have a few questions - I'll start with this one, is it okay to create a zazzle store with collections from related products and promote these only as an affiliate? When I look at my account, it says I am a designer... I'm just a little confused if I set this up correctly.

I have a little more store work with banners before it will even show the products... so I am not sure I am even doing this correctly...

Here is the store - it is new and rough...

https://www.zazzle.com/store/fun_mugs_and_prints

I want to create mug collections of curated mugs that appeal to me and others I promote to. I think there are a ton of fun designs on Zazzle but hard to find... curated content, I believe, is a way to generate interest.

I'm new at this, but I hope to make this happen.

Any advice on setup will be helpful.
thanks.

You don't earn anything promoting others from within Zazzle. Promotions need to be done on outside sites in order to earn a referral, which is the purpose of affiliating.

Well, my thought was to create collections and then promote the collections outside of Zazzle, like on Facebook, and websites.

That is a good plan, be aware that collections have been off and on regarding funtionality. When they work correctly they are beautiful to promote with but they have been having a lot of issues lately. I saw a post in tech yesterday saying they should be fixed now... Should being the key word.

I haven't tested them myself to see but I hope so.

I just wanted to warn you about it and maybe by the time you get up and running they will be all better.

good luck. Roses

It is also important to know that entire collections "disappear" when any item in the collection is updated in any way. So if the designer of an item in your collection updates the tags on that item, your entire collection will disappear until it is indexed.

Sometimes the indexing period is very short, a matter of hours, sometimes it takes days...

What your planning on doing is something I've considered multiple times. The consistent issues with collections is what has stopped me...

I would be curious to hear from you in a few months as to how successful you've been.

Best of luck!

Cheers

Thanks for the feedback about collections. I was not aware of the issues. I still have a ways to go before I can finish my banners - my designer wife is too busy at the moment and I have no design skills haha.

So, if you have a prod that would fit my collection, and you would like to create a banner with your item that fits, let me know...
