(TpT Seller) re: 10 Things to do without worksheets for Sarah, Plain and Tall
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! Since you are new to TPT, 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 do 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 cover page for each of your products (even those that have just one page) which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use this? When? How is it graded? 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. 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. 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.

Was you photo taken when you served as a missionary or did you teach overseas for a short time? I wish you the very best as you sell on TPT!
