The Christmas holidays have provided an opportunity to take a breath and consider new ways to monetise the site. At first I considered donations like many other do, but then decided a you guys should get something out of the deal as well. This leads to the launch of the techAU Merchandise Store.
If you like the content on techAU and want to support its future development, then head over to http://techAU.tv/store and buy one of the techAU branded products. There’s plenty to choose from, coasters, t-shirts, stickers, hoodies, key rings and even a calendar made from tech photos. On each purchase, techAU collects 10%, there is an option to increase the percentage, but this would increase the overall cost, so 10% it is.
The techAU Merchandise Store uses zazzle.com.au as the backend. If you’ve not heard of it before it’s definitely worth checking out. It’s pretty simple to setup a store and create new products using your images and text. If you get in before the end of today (3/1/2011), you’ll get 20% knocked off as part of a new years promotion.. so be quick!
There’ll continue to be new products added over time, also happy to take requests and suggestions.
