My First Pattern Sale: A Face Mask

Imagine the surprise when I open my email and read that I made a sale. My heart leaps for joy!

It was in 2016 when I had my first sale on Zazzle, it was a postcard with my hand lettering I edited in Photoshop. I stopped posting products since then because there's a lot that happened-- I had a baby, we had to start a business then, we moved from the province to the City.



It was only this year that I brought my store to life again. I realized the importance of a passive income when the quarantine started last 2020. I almost lost my job that time. It took me several months before I was able to have it again. I was really afraid that time, I regretted the days when I neglected my online ventures because if I continue them, the passive income will be able to help us float in the uncertain times.

Now, I can say that the feelings I had are the same, I am very happy, excited and motivated to create more products, especially now that I learned a lot about pattern making. I am so fascinated with it, really and I love how each pattern amazes me every time I complete one whether in an old fashioned way or in Photoshop.

Based on the advised I heard from a lot of sellers and even in this video:

 

It would take up to 70 - 100 products before you will be able to make a sale on Zazzle. Lucky me, in less than 50 products with almost the same designs, I was able to make my first sale. 

The problem is, I don't even know who bought my product. Zazzle is asking me to log-in to the country where it was sold before I would be able to see who buys the facemask. Of course I could find out about that but for the meantime, I better off savor the moment of getting my first sale 😁
