Challenges

May 29, 2018

This new venture has been challenging and I still have a lot to learn.  Although I have quite a few designs now on both Redbubble and Zazzle, finding time for all this has been difficult.  Some challenges I'm facing:

  • Finding time to create designs

    • While I've found some time to come up with new designs, mostly I then apply that same design to a variety of products.  Applying the design to a product and adding it to my shop if relatively quick.  Coming up with the design in the first place then perfecting it takes a bit longer.

  • Marketing via Social Media

    • I have a Twitter account, Facebook page and Instagram account just for 'KPcaptures'.  And, while both Redbubble and Zazzle have options for sharing a product or collection via Twitter and Facebook, they do not have an option for Instagram so that takes a bit longer.  I've been doing a page save, editing the image in Paint or Photoshop, saving it as a .jpg file then uploading it to IG.  Not exactly a smooth or quick process.  If anyone has suggestions I'm all ears!

    • I've also been trying to find templates to match some of the products.  I found some templates that have been published in Redbubble's and have played with one or two but haven't posted to social media using one yet. 

  • Finding time to read about selling with Redbubble and/or Zazzle

    • Both sites have information about selling on their site.  In addition to their Help/FAQ pages, both have Blogs.  This is where I found the Redbubble templates I mentioned above.  But finding time to take in all the information to be found about these sites is quite challenging.

    • I've also done some internet research just by googling things like 'selling on Zazzle' or 'selling on Redbubble', 'biggest sellers on Zazzle (or Redbubble)', 'promoting Zazzle designs', etc.  There's a lot to take in!

I'm beginning to realize this part-time venture into trying to earn a little money from my nature/landscape photography by selling on Print-On-Demand sites is almost like having another full time job!
