(TpT Seller) re: Young and Old animal names
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. Since you are a newbie, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market this product.
Create a different cover page for each of your products 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? Is this a center acrttivity? 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.
You might look at one of my freebies listed below to see what I mean. Remember your free item represents your whole store.
I am now your very first follower, and hope you will reciprocate at my store as well. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/SciPi/Products
Be sure to take the time to add your picture or a clip art image that represents you. It helps us get to know you and it allows buyers to connect you with your products. The best of luck as you sell on TPT!
