Romney and Ryan Best-sellers at Zazzle

I was just looking down the list of the top 100 best-selling products at Zazzle right now. There isn't a single pro-Obama product anywhere in the top 100 right now.

All the political items are pro-Romney except for one, and it is a yard sign that is anti-establishment this is also anti-Obama (sitting at 93 right now).

Most of the best-sellers are Romney and Ryan themed bumper stickers.

Casablanca 70 Years Old

I watched Casablanca yesterday and was reminded it was the Best Picture in 1942. The movie is turning 70 years old then. Movies might make more money these days, but I think it'll be awhile before Hollywood comes up with a movie that appeals to so many people for so long. Description from Wikipedia: "Casablanca is a 1942 American romantic drama film directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, and featuring Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Dooley Wilson. Set during World War II, it focuses on a man torn between, in the words of one character, love and virtue. He must choose between his love for a woman and helping her Czech Resistance leader husband escape from the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis."

Zazzle is so good

What a nice video! A young shopper that loves her dogs talking about a photo clock she made at Zazzle.

If you'd like some numbers for your personalized photo clocks, I have a growing number of options in my online shop at Zazzle.

Earning Money Online with Zazzle Referrals

Today I saw one of the less common, but regular enough, referral sales go to some nameless person out there on the Internet that had been promoting my products (or stickers in general and the customer picked out mine). Someone bought 120 sticker packs from one of my stores. The sale was just shy of $500, so someone earned over $50 for leaving a link somewhere that lead to Zazzle.

Do Something Poster

A motivational poster that was picked for Today's Best at Zazzle today. Designer said: "This is a realization I had while sitting in a cubicle at my tedious job and feeling like something needed to happen. I've personally got this one on my wall."

I know a lady that has been unemployed for several years. She ran out of extended unemployment benefits long ago and is living off her retirement I suppose. It would be impolite to ask.

She has told me she wants to start her own business ... someday ... after she has a job. She says that she doesn't want to have to rely on working for people or government. It would also be impolite to remind her that somehow she allowed herself to rely on other people to create her future and I don't see how that kind of independence will ever happen in her life. If being unemployed for two years wasn't enough to kick start the entrepreneur within, that entrepreneur probably isn't within.

Here is a perfect sign for the milli…

Spam Tags are Useless

I was wandering about the Zazzle marketplace today and saw some products where the designer used every holiday in the tags of their newest products even when there was an obvious mismatch in design and holiday, and despite the bright yellow box on the publish page that reads "Zazzle now follows a strict no-spam policy as reflected in our updated User Agreement."

For those of us that want to succeed at selling art and photography online via Zazzle, following their user agreement is a no brainer. Period. Nothing much else to say.

Except I will because despite the rules, people still use tag spam. Here are reasons that those of us that want to succeed at Zazzle should think about so that we try our hardest to tag properly.

If someone is looking for a Halloween clock for their wall, they won't buy a Santa Claus clock no matter now cute it is. And, if someone really wants to buy a Halloween clock as a Christmas gift, they will never search the store for "Christmas gifts…
