I honestly started out as a buyer on Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT). I have about 10 years experience and can plan fairly quickly, but a new job and a 3rd child happened in my life nearly at the same time! Time management became a major concern.
As things settled down I decided to list a few things myself and open my own store. I started out with 1 simple upload of a not to fancy worksheet. I wanted to learn the ropes and see how hard it would be to be a TPT store owner.
The whole process only took about 3 minutes. Shortly after this first product post, I posted a few other items. The sales didn't roll in that was for sure. In fact, I would say it was a good month before I received an email saying that I had sold something! But when I got that email, man was I stoked! Another teacher had seen and bought my item! It was a type of professional excitement and motivation that I needed to fire up my career again.
In future posts I'll start sharing things I do and what I've learned about creating products, posting, driving sales and using tricks to help you cross sell! Thanks for reading!
