Published : 6 July 2015

Framed PhotographIn my previous post, I looked at a number of Print on Demand (POD) companies that can be used for selling artwork on t-shirts and gifts. In that post, I briefly mentioned RedBubble but up until now, I’ve not had any direct experience with RedBubble. However, I am currently setting up an account on RedBubble so that I can help a photographer showcase his work on their site, and of course, then be in a position to sell his work.

Now, of course, RedBubble is for artists, designers, slogan writers as well as for photographers.

And the good news is that it is free to join.

So here is a simple straight-forward tutorial to help you do the same if you are keen to try out this platform as a way of making some additional  money online: [Read more…]

Where to Sell Your Artwork Online: POD Companies Compared

Last updated : 15 June 2015

Making that first sale can be one of the most exciting moments for an artist. Someone has been so impressed by the artwork that they have decided to take out their wallet and make a purchase. What a stamp of approval!

If you haven’t already started selling your artwork, then a Print on Demand Company (POD) could be just what you are looking for, to experience that type of excitement.

This golf ball character design that I have created, for example, sells on mouse pads (as shown here), on t-shirts, coffee mugs and a whole range of other gift items. All of this is courtesy of a POD company that handles printing and shipping for me. In this case the POD company is Zazzle.

If you have a blog or a website but are not sure how to best monetise it then you too could start selling t-shirts or gift items featuring your own designs and slogans. This is a great way to add interest to a niche site.

Promoting Products Currently UnavailableRegardless of whether you manage just one or several Amazon affiliate sites, it can prove tricky when it comes to keeping track of products that have dropped out of production for some reason or are simply no longer on offer.

You have probably already noticed, to your horror, that a product you have been promoting is no longer available. That is, it is now listed on the Amazon site as “Currently Unavailable“.

Now, obviously if you are promoting just a few Amazon products then you can easily manually check from time to time to make sure that each item is still being offered for sale. 

However, a soon as the number of products you are promoting starts to grow and grow, then checking each item manually becomes less feasible. [Read more…]

Are Your Web Pages Slow to Load? Identify the Real Culprit.

Published : 21 November 2014

Slow Loading Website

A slow loading site is an issue that can rob you of a large percentage of your website traffic. People won’t wait for slow loading pages.

There are a number of different tools that allow you to check on how quickly your site is loading and most include suggestions on how to go about making improvements to your site.

But, sometimes finding the real culprit can be a touch tricky!

WebsiteTips4U has been loading way too slowly and it has been getting worse over the last couple of months.

Actually, I should clarify that statement: its slowness has been spasmodic. Sometimes it loads in what seems like lightning speed. Other times it almost times out.

So, if you are reading this post, then hopefully you didn’t have to wait too long for it to load OR you are reading it after I have implemented the fix that I have identified as the solution below. [Read more…]
