I began to produce TES resources in August 2015. When I look back at some of my early resources I cringe! I made so many mistakes…. Since then I have come a long way and learned so much. I have consistently been one of the top-selling authors on TES and have 47 TES recommended resources. One resource made over 900 sales in the space of a few weeks and earned nearly £2000. I was also shortlisted for the TES 2017, Bev Evans, Author of the Year Award. In this 26-page, step by step guide I share my mistakes and my successes to help you avoid making the same errors and to become a successful author sooner than you would have done without this guide. I do not claim to have all the answers and my way might not be other people’s way. However, whether you are a potential author, an author starting out or already an author; I am sure that this guide can help you in some way and will prove a worthwhile investment. The guide includes advice on: - Making resources - Maximising the selling potential of resources - Creating a cover page - Sourcing images - Copyrighting your resources - Pricing your resources - Product Descriptions - Adding links to other products and your shop in descriptions - Creating your TES shop - Branding - Increasing the visibility of your resources - Promoting your products through social media platforms - Promoting yourself - Dealing with reviews - General advice The resource contains hyperlinks to useful sites and tools which will help you in making and promoting your products.
