Zazzle speed-sharer improved with hashtags made from product tags

screenshot showing the hashtags generated from the product type and the product's first 5 tags

We’ve tweaked the speed sharer so that it offers you hashtags created from the first 5 tags of the product currently on view.

It also tries to extract the product name and make a hashtag out of that. This fails when the designer has added the product name to the title instead of letting Zazzle add it automatically. It also fails for the “Create your own” products that Zazzle provides.

Next planned tweak

We’re still not very happy about the text that is auto-generated at the start of that copy area, so we’ll be looking at improving that next.

Edited to add: That’s done now 🙂

New tutorial added for free WordPress Blog owners

If you’re an owner of a free WordPress blog, you’ll know that it’s really hard to make posts that help to promote your Zazzle store’s designs.

That’s all changed now with (some) support for them added to Nifty. What’s this support? Nifty now makes it easy to share product grid sharer pages on them, with a really attractive image automatically generated form the first five products in the grid.

If you want one for your free WordPress blog, follow this tutorial and never look back.

Want to see one in action? Have a look at this (opens in new window)

New multi-product sharing image for Product Grid Sharer

We’ve updated Nifty and the Product Grid Sharer so, when you share to pinterest, facebook and twitter, you get an image made up of the first five products from the grid. It’s a bit like the image you get when sharing a collection directly from Zazzle.

We’ll give it a chance for any bugs to surface before doing the same for the Slideshow Sharer.

We’ve chosen an image proportion that works on Twitter and Facebook, and one with a vertical format for Pinterest.

Here’s what it looks like on each:

Facebook

Nasap – the new Nifty tool on the block

😭

We’ve had to withdraw this tool – IFTTT refused to play nicely with the approach we used. The random selection that made sure everyone shared different products just didn’t work out properly and very little was actually being shared after a handful of days.

To those of you who tried it, we’re sorry it ended up this way.

You can leave your exisiting pins / tweets / shares. They’re all fine and may actually lead to success in the “long tail” – ie over a period of a few months or longer. See Wikipedia’s entry for long tail.
