Not many Zazzlers know this special promotion tip

Did you know you can change the name or greeting when you promote one of your Zazzle products? It's got to use a text template for it to work.

This is really cool when you want to personalize something to show to a potential customer.

Unfortunately this tip doesn't work to change images.

Official way

Here's the official way. Did you know this technique?
  1. Go to your product page
  2. Change the name as appropriate and then click away from the box so the display updates to use what you just typed. This is important.
  3. Click share and then you've got all the ways you can post to pretty much anywhere you want.

Here's an example using one of my products. Here's the product with a monogram as it shows by default.

And here it is using a name instead of the monogram:

Behind the scenes method

But it's a good opportunity to learn a bit about what goes on behind the scenes.

This assumes that you've used the default text0 as the url parameter, as I have done with the above (if you haven't, then change the 0 to 1 or whatever you've used).
All you have to do is add the following to the end of any product page link or any image link:
  • If there's already a ? in the url, then put: &t_text0_txt=Jenny on the end
  • If not, put ?t_text0_txt=Jenny on the end
So let's say you're starting with:
Note that, to keep things simple, I'm not using my rf id and tracking codes in those links.
The links will open in new windows, so go ahead and try them. Change Jenny to something else and see how cool it is!

I mentioned above that a good use would be to personalize for a particular customer. Maybe you've got a friend on Facebook and you want to show them what your design looks like with their name on it. Simple, adjust the product link above to use the right name and then paste it into a new post on their timeline.


Happy Promoting, fellow Zazzler :)
