Do you promote all your products or just some of them ?
Posted: Wednesday, April 19, 2017 9:23:58 PM
Okay so it has come to my attention that when I create new products, I stress out about promoting them all. I really can't promote 100 products every single day. So the real question is, do you guys choose specific products to promote or do you promote them all ? I am really confused. Thanks in advance.

Often, I design for a while and then I take a "break", only it's a break filled with promoting. I find not just my own but also other people's products to promote. And, regarding my own, I choose both old and new so that I don't end up promoting thirty products in a row with the same pattern. I have no idea whether it's true, but I feel like mixing it up is better.

Nor could I. It's yet one more reason I've never used Quick Create. I design a product and then promote it at least on one or more of the social media. Occasionally, I might wait until there's enough of a design to create a collection, which is what I then promote.

If you're producing 100 products a day, within a year, you'll have over a third of your allowed number of products. Is that truly your goal?

Just some. There's no way I could promote each one individually. It would look like spamming. Actually... it might BE!

A good way to do it is not just to focus on promoting single items but collections or even categories. Collections are super easy to promote, just like items with the social share buttons.

CW, Stop copying me...Laughing
I promote each new product to at least one place like Pinterest or Twitter as soon as I create it. I also wait sometimes to just promote a collection all at once, but I don't use QC anymore and I only create a few products a day sometimes 10 or 20 on a really good day. I also have 60+ boards between mine and group boards I can pin to on Pinterest, 5 collections and several groups on Google+ and Twitter, Tumblr and Wanelo. so I never run out of places to promote and I don't have to spam.

Shellibean, once again we see an example of great minds. Grin

I'm not sure what the attraction is to QC unless newcomers believe that quantity is what will get them sales. No, quantity is not what does it. If a company produces a thousand black rubber duckies and another company produces one yellow ducky, just guess which little rubber ducky is going to sell.

I wish I could say I promote my products all the time but the truth is that sometimes I just can't push the button, I've been raised to work hard behind the scenes, and that to be seen is for other people, so I find it hard to promote my own products, but every time I manage to do it, I promote 15 in a few minutes lol and then I really feel relief for a week or so, till the urge to promote starts within and so my struggle...
I am very happy and grateful with the Marketplace and the affiliates because people find my products no matter how much I struggle to overcome my fear and manage to promote my products or notLove

This is a battle for many, but we must overcome! Affiliates are great and I appreciate them and I even am one... but the truth is they can only promote you so much and they are also promoting others besides including themselves. When you are promoting you, it is an exclusive and you shouldn't feel funny about it because everybody is doing it. If you are going to get seen in the ocean of competition, you need to put yourself out there.

Possibly, though it might have been to the choir.

That is so wonderful about being with Zazzle, by overcoming our fears we grow our way to the top :-)
I don't believe in competition, I believe we all attract our own customers, sometimes they are ready looking for our products but we are not ready yet, and sometimes we are ready but our customers not yet and then there is that beautiful time "we" call "match" :-)
