(TpT Seller) re: A Region by Any Other Name - The Middle East lesson plan w/ PowerPoint
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.
Add a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. Make sure you have at least two thumbnails for your product so buyers get an idea of what they are purchasing. I thought your preview was excellent.
You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do? Why? 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. Also number your pages/slides.
It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.
Check out the Sellers Forum under Communication on your dashboard page. There are tons of ideas and helpful suggestions given by TPT veterans. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!
