(TpT Seller) re: 20 Quick Questions No. 5 - Multiplying and dividing by 10 or 100
I saw your posting on the Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! You wanted some feedback; so, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.
Add some clipart to add color or just color some of your font. (I add clipart, even on high school math tests.) For some reason buyers like color on the original even though they may copy your product in black and white. Also, create a a second page/slide which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use this? How much time do you give? Do you grade it? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.
Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page/slide. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Here is how to do that. Use the insert and go to the right. You should see symbols there. Insert the copyright symbol, your name and date. It should look something like this: Â© V. Rauch (Scipi), 2011
Also number your pages/slides. Finally, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.
It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below to gather some ideas. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.
Keep checking the Sellers Forum under for tons of ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!
