Making Money On Zazzle – How To Add Tracking Codes To Your Zazzle Referral Links

Making Money on Zazzle by Avalon Media.org

Every Zazzle designer has their own Zazzle Associates ID code, via which you receive referral pay when you promote your own work or that of another designer on Zazzle. But did you know that you can also add a tracking code to
your referral links? This can be particularly helpful if you are running a promotion or are testing a new strategy in your Zazzle sales.
While it might be a little time consuming, it is quite simple to execute.

Let me show you on this example

The following is a completed link I would use to track one of my items ( A Spooky Heart Halloween Pillow)

http://www.zazzle.com/heart_pillow-189963342484307757?rf=youruniqeassociateidhere&tc=Halloween

This section is your product code:
http://www.zazzle.com/heart_pillow-189963342484307757

?rf=youruniqeassociateidhere  is where your unique associates referral id would be – which is unique to you, and will be assigned to you by Zazzle. Your Associate ID can be found in the Associates tab of the MY ACCOUNT section within the Zazzle website.

&tc=Halloween is the unique tracker I added in order to keep track of my Halloween sale stats. You can create your own combination of letters and/or numbers to create whatever tracking code you would like to use, and makes sense to you. I highly recommend that you keep it simple, though.

Put together, you can use this uniquely created link to check up on your promotions and sales.

If you want to add a tracking code to your Zazzle Pinterest pins, you will have to manually add your tracking code AFTER pinning it to your board. This can take some additional time, but it is really worth it, if you are serious about tracking the performance of your individual campaigns or products.

Have a wonderful day!

Stop That Re-Pin! 4 Things You Should Consider Before Hitting That Pin Button

4 Things You Should Consider Before Hitting That Re-pin Button

Whether you are a Print On Demand Artist, a writer or have your own business, the power of owning a Pinterest Business Account is great and should be utilized to its fullest potential by everyone. But because it is easy to fall into the trap of spamming your followers, you have to have a certain level of other pins on your boards that are not advertising your products or services. One of many ways to so is to repin what other people have posted.

Cute dresses from LuLu*s!!!

However, repinning a great infographic without too much thought can be counter-productive. Here are four points you should consider when repinning content to your Pinterest business account (or any Pinterest account):

1. Read the comments to the pin thoroughly. Just because the information is great, does not mean that the pinner’s thoughts on the subject matter fit your needs, the needs of your audience, or are views you want to convey. Better yet, change the description of the pin completely, and include your own information on it.

2. Check the link. A great graphic or image does not make a great re-pin. Make sure the pin does not lead to some questionable content or is a dead link.

3. Get rid off hashtags. While hashtags are wonderful for facebook, twitter, Instagram and a host of other places, Pinterest is not one of them. Get rid of all the cluttering hashtags before re-pinning the pin.

4. Keep your followers in mind. Consider if the majority of your followers of this board would benefit from the content you are about to re-pin. If it is only of  interest to you or is only re-pinned to not look spammy, don’t bother. Every pin you share should have a purpose and bring value to your followers. No exceptions.

Happy re-pinning!
