Zazzle makes a great side hustle!

As you know, I’m a mom blogger (that goes without saying, right? since you are reading my blog). It’s an outlet for my creativity and my biggest and most long-running side hustle to date. And, you probably remember that I also write ebooks, and I upcycle furniture and antiques. Yet another side hustle I REALLY enjoy is Zazzle.

Zazzle is an online store where users create and sell their original designs, while the company handles all the printing and shipping. I love it because I can be as creative as I want (and stack benjamins), without having to store, package, or send any physical products to my customers. It’s free to open a designer account, and there are no monthly fees.

If you think it’s just another scheme that sounds too good to be true, think again. I’m living proof that you can make money through Zazzle. I’ve sold several items on the site so far in my brief time there, my best seller being a deck of personalized playing cards I designed. Here they are:

I’ve had my Zazzle designer account for only 6-8 months, and have pretty much forgotten about it until the past month. I made the mistake of throwing some designs up with the quick create option, and they weren’t that high quality. I’m in the process of cleaning up my mess now that I see I’m ACTUALLY making sales! My sales this week include someone buying 40 copies of a Christmas ornament I designed (for a winter wedding maybe? or a Christmas party?). I was floored by that sale! I also sold some New Year’s Eve paper party hats for someone getting ready to ring in the new year.
You can see my sales below. No, it’s not a million dollars, or even a thousand dollars (YET)! But, this is FREE MONEY, and I’ll never turn that down. It’s free to set up an account, and all the designs are images I made myself, so the only cost to me was my time. And, the profits below required nearly no effort at all. Once the initial work of inputting my designs is done, it’s residual income I make in my sleep. I am confident that with a little more effort on my part, within 3 months I will be elevated to “zPro” status at Zazzle, which means that I’ve made $100/month for the past 3 consecutive months. It’s amazing how motivating it is to start getting sales!

Make Money From Zazzle as a Side Hustle

If my tiny income report isn’t exciting enough, check out the story of Elke Clarke, a Zazzle designer who has made millions on the site, and was able to leave the corporate world behind her.

Additionally, all you have to do is take a gander at a few sellers’ stores on the Zazzle website to find tons of designers who have a little “zPro” icon behind their name. This means that they have made at least $100 per month for three consecutive months. Not too shabby for a side hustle, right?

It seems like everyone’s got a side hustle these days. What’s yours? Tell me about it in the comments below!
