Recommending products – Cross-selling to optimize your Zazzle store and increase your sales.
A great way to increase your sales is to add cross-sale recommendations into the product description. Say you create a greeting card or an invitation; you could cross-sell matching stamps or envelopes and increase your chances that they’ll buy more from your store. It’s also a great way to promote your other stores, if you have multiple Zazzle stores.
This is how to add recommended products to your product pages – Find the products you want to cross-sell, and click the “Link” button underneath the share this section on the product page. In the pop up, copy the html code – this is the code you need to put into the description in the 2nd product.
Once you’ve copied the code, go to the description section on the matching product and paste the code in the description area.
Now, once you hit “OK” you can see the cross-sell.

Holiday Prep tips from Zazzle sellers:
Reflections06 – I have found that people shop for Christmas items ALL year long – so why wait until the fall to begin promoting or designing them? It’s been really hot this summer and to have a little “cool” winter fun I’ve been in Christmas mode for a few weeks now already, designing, organizing the shop, blogging the new goodies (just blogged a new Christmas post today, in fact). Especially for those planning Christmas parties, your Christmas party invitations and address labels should be in your shops NOW.)
TheInspiredEdge – There is a rule in photography called “The Kiss Rule”
It means “Keep It Simple Stupid” a not so gentle reminder that simplicity is a beautiful thing!
That’s what I try to do with design. Keep it simple, clean & elegant. Keyword, keyword, keyword!
