So, you want to sell your curriculum on TpT, but the question is: How do you price your products so you can actually make money?
The Everyday Learning Price Calculator offers you a comparison option to help you determine a fair retail value for your products. Once you fill out the yellow boxes on the Price Calculator (found on the 1st tab of the excel file), the program will automatically generate suggested retail prices based on an hourly rate calculation as well as a per-page calculation.
The Price Calculator will also determine how many unit sales you will need to make, using the suggested per-page retail price, to ensure you earn your hoped-for hourly rate. For example, based upon the data you input for total number of pages and price-per-page, the Price Calculator may tell you the suggested retail price should be $5.30 for a new product. If you hope to earn $15/hour for each of the 8 hours it took you to create the new product, then you would need to sell 23 units to reach that goal. Every sale you make after that break-even point is just extra money in your pocket.
This Price Calculator is a tool that you can use to help you quickly calculate and compare different price points. Doing so will help you determine how easily you can earn a fair market wage for your time and effort.
In addition, you Excel file also contains a Time Investment calculator that allows you to easily determine how much time you spent creating your fantastic new teaching material.
Finally, you also receive an Hourly Wage Price Tracking Chart so you can record your pricing information. The chart automatically calculates your first year hourly rate earning for a particular product, as well as your Year-To-Date earnings.
