New Shop

So today on top of trying to calm to fears of panicing shopkeepers i decided to launch a new shop. I launched a new shop - it has about a dozen designs so far and I am hoping to have another dozen added tommorrow. It is time for me to throw myself back into my work and make some major changes to bring in the big bucks, i have been slacking off the last few weeks and i cant afford to keep doing that.

Shake Up Today

So today cafepress announced that the Volume Bonus & Affilaite programs will be undergoing a change.

Personally I have always seen the volume bonus as just that, a BONUS. So not a big deal for me, but some shopkeepers consider it part of their regular income. So they are not so Happy. Some shopkeepers have even begun closing shops, which personally I think is a very rash decision to make. Everyone needs to first wait it out and see how it works. Yes bonuses may go down - but comissions will be going up with the changes in the affilaite program. And with the new lower threshold for base bonuses - there is a chance bonuses will not really be as adversely affected as people are thinking.

All we can do right now is wait it out and see where it goes - and remember a Bonus - is a Bonus - and should not be taken as anything more!

ok so...

ok so i haven't done much in the last week. i have been catching up on some long deserved sleep and getting some house work done. i did add about 15 new designs last week, but that is not nearly enough. i really need to get motivated and just spend a whole day adding stuff and get this stuff all loaded. i do need to make some more designs too, i have loaded just about everything i have had lieing around for a few months (or years)...back to work i guess

so yesterday

i got nothing new added to my shops - well no new designs - i did add some new products into one section that i noticed has been getting sales that can use some beefing up - and i realized it was mixxing some important products - i also created a few dozen new images to beef up one section that i am hoping will do very well - and placed some ads on google adwords for this section - once the section is set up i will post a link to show you what i mean!! stay tuned

this morning already

so far today i went through and added the "my friends" link on a few stores i did not realize were missing it, and then i went into my website and added a new friend and removed a friend who cannot seem to keep his banner running, i have warned him a few times before but he never seemed to fix it, and it has been about 6 months, so oh well i can't keep him if he cant keep his own site running! i need to get some more done on adding those designs i made yesterday but right now there are some issues with uploading new images to cafepress so i will wait, most likley the servers are just overloaded, it happens on weekends sometimes. maybe i should go to the beach for a while??


i feel like i accomplished nothing today. I did prep about 40 new designs for one of my shops, but i did not get them loaded. I did get more stuff loaded into google base, i have gone back to unsing instant cafe reather then cafetoolbox since it seems to be working better for me right now. ever since the new cpextract change cafetoolbox has stopped working. i have reported it a few times but nothing seems to have changed oh well. i also worked on some meta tags for my shops. oh well guess ill do more tommorrow
