(TpT Seller) re: Literature Circle Jobs for Elementary Students
I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your store and a couple of your freebies. My first thought on one of your freebies was that it was only one page with no directions or clip art and therefore would have trouble competing with other free resources offered by TPT sellers.
Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products. First, make a cover page for EVERY product you create which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers, even if it is only a one page resource. Add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page. 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.
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.
I hope this was the kind of feedback you were both looking for. Good luck with selling!
