Seller To-Do List: Father's Day

Seller To-Do List: Father's Day

Now that you've made it through Mother's Day, it's time to start designing for Dad. Here's a to-do list that you can use to prepare your stores in the coming weeks:

1. Cover the Basics

At the very least, you'll want to cover the basics. Father's Day t-shirts, ties, cards, and mugs are always popular gifts for Father's Day, so be sure that there are a few of each product in your store.

2. Be Funny

Show your sense of humor with funny Father's Day t-shirts and cards. Let loose with a few funny designs, and you might see more sales from shoppers looking for something a little less sentimental.

3. Be Creative

In addition to covering the basics, you'll want to be creative with your gift designs. Make iPhone cases for gadget-loving dads, or get ahead on your Doodle speaker designs before the official launch.

4. Write Excellent Descriptions

Set your products apart with compelling product descriptions. For each product, explain what's in your Father's Day design, and why it's awesome.

5. Avoid Spelling Errors

One tiny spelling mistake can really ruin a design. Here are a few common slip-ups:

Your ≠ You're — Correct: Dad, you're the world's greatest father!
Then ≠ Than — Correct: My dad is better than your dad.
Its ≠ It's — Correct: It's Father's Day!

6. Tag Your Products

Tags will help shoppers find your Father's Day designs. Check out our recently re-vamped sell section for tutorials on tagging and more.

7. Promote

Promoting your products is just as important as creating them. Once you've added new designs, be sure to spend some time blogging and tweeting your creations. Promote your favorite Father's Day gifts made by other sellers, and you could earn even more referrals, just don't forget to add your Associate ID.

8. Have Fun!

It may feel like hard work sometimes, but Zazzle is about having fun! If you're ever feeling stuck, take a breather and chat with other Sellers in the forum. Not only will you receive lots of support and encouragement, but you'll also find lots of great advice.

Father's Day is June 19th, so don't procrastinate on this to-do list. Earlier is always better, when it comes to being a Seller, so be sure to get started soon!

Get Inspired!

Based on recent user trends, here are a few design ideas for the coming week:
