Bigger Than I Thought

I’ve been working on selling cards for acupuncturists and doing artwork for them. I have been focused on how I want to sell them. Now I’m on Zazzle but it’s not how I really want the business to work. For one thing I think the customization arena can be confusing to those who haven’t used it. For another, I think Zazzle is a bit expensive (particularly considering what my cut is). While I plan to keep that store, I’ve been working on my own branding.

And it’s growing! I have tons of ideas and implementing them just keeps taking me down new steps. I think one reason that I haven’t done this before is that I was thinking too small. The idea was always big but I was trying to make it work small and that’s why it wouldn’t.

Does anyone else have places where they need to think bigger than they?

  1. I agree about Zazzle. I sell a couple of cards on there on month, which hardly compensates for the time it takes to set up. Wish I knew what the secret sauce was.

  2. Karen, I think you are selling far more consistently than I am! My advantage is that I’m gearing to a business which means I typically sell more than one card at a time! I think your cards definitely show popularity, but getting them noticed is the hard part (I can’t believe after being on Huff Post that you didn’t get a ton of sales off of that!)
