I want to start this post by stating that I am in no way a big Teachers Pay Teachers seller. You won’t find me on the top 100 list and might never, but the things that I have learned while selling, creating, and blogging I would love to share with you! I have made a list of 5 Teachers Pay Teachers Tips and Tricks that I think all big and small sellers should do.
My top 5 list for Teachers Pay Teachers Tips and Tricks:
1. Print out your product stats and start studying! Go to your dashboard and click on product statistics. I always export to excel sheet and then I make notes on the paper. What do I look for? Well, I really focus on my conversion rate. If it is lower than 8% then I start looking at the product and see if it needs…
- price change – higher? lower?
- deleting completely
- a pinterest image
- a facelift for the cover
I make necessary changes and then wait a month before I do the same thing again.
2. Did you know you can find out exactly what your ranking is in your state and overall sales for TPT? Yep! It’s totally true! I love this! I keep track of what page I am on so I can quickly find if I am moving up or down the rankings chart. Why do I think this is important? I want to know if people are out selling me and if so what I am doing in my store that isn’t up to par. If I am passing and moving up, then I know that I am doing something right!
3. Want to see growth? How do you do that if you aren’t keeping track of your stats? Being an RTI coordinator it is probably no surprise that data is super important to me. I love it! I keep track of number of likes, followers, etc for all social media, blog, and TPT. I track sales daily, monthly, by the year, etc. It is just part of my routine to see where I am and how I am working towards goals that I have set for myself.
4. Why would you want to be someone else’s store? That’s super confusing to your followers. Don’t copy other products, posts, etc. Be creative! Once you find what brings in lots of sales, then do that over and over again in different ways! Find your niche and stick with it!
5. Find other bloggers like you who live close by and meet up. Get together and share ideas. I love the social aspect of TPT. No, I didn’t make it to Vegas this year, but I will eventually. Meeting other sellers who share your passion is always a great way to network and market. Some of my best stats have come when great friends share my posts for me. How sweet!!! I know other friends are cheering me on and that is so important! Find a group and make friendships!
