Remember how I posted about using Quick Create in Zazzle to put my designs on more products. Yesterday, I realised that I didn’t choose a particular option in the Quick Create process which affects the ease of customisation for customers. And ease of customisation is actually quite an important deciding factor for purchase in Zazzle.
To rectify the problem, I need to re-create the products and delete the old ones. On the other hand, all the marketing and promotional activities that I have done for the old products would be gone and it is going to be a huge effort to do it again. As my mind is going back and forth trying to work out the pros and cons on the course of action and kicking myself for making such a mistake that affects about 300 products, it suddenly hit me…
“I am overthinking and simply procrastinating
on what I knew I should be doing! ”
What I am trying to say is, sometimes we already knew the course of action to take but we just delay taking action by saying we need more time to figure things out because we dread the efforts that we need to put in. Yet things are solved the sooner we start instead of delaying.
So I bit the bullet and comb through the 300 products and make the necessary corrections. And I did whatever marketing and promotional activities I could yesterday to cover what I have lost. It is a tough day yesterday but I got through it! Not to mention, the whole thing inspired the doodle above! 🙂
