How to create resource bundles

Increase your sales by packaging and discounting your resources

Haven’t tried creating resource bundles yet? To help you get started, we've pulled together some quick steps to creating your first bundle, plus frequently asked questions and handy links to just some of the many popular bundles created by authors.

Why bundle your resources?

Well, there are a few good reasons. You can increase your income as, on average, bundles sell just as well as individual resources and for three times the price. You can also make teachers’ lives easier by helping them to find and buy all the resources they need to teach a particular topic, or a series of lessons, in one place, for less.

Who can create bundles?

Simply share 10 or more paid resources to become a Bronze author and bundle away!

Creating your first bundle

Creating bundles is quick and easy, just follow these six steps:

  1.  Log in to tes.com, head to your author dashboard, click on ‘Resource management’ and select 'Create bundle' from the tabs along the top. You can also go direct to the bundler tool here.
     
  2. Click ‘Add resources to the bundle’ and select the resources you want to bundle together in the pop-up. NB: you can include up to 20 resources in a single bundle – at least three of them must be paid.
     
  3. Next, add a title and description. Try to use a clear, detailed title that includes the keyword “bundle”, so teachers know to expect a bumper resource pack at great value. Write a thorough description including: who your bundle is for, what's included, why it's useful and why you've grouped this particular set of resources together.
     
  4. Nearly there! Now it's time to add a price. Just type in the box how much you'd like to sell the complete bundle for. NB: a bundle must cost at least £2.00 and must not cost more than the total price of the resources included. Tes doesn’t subsidise bundle discount, so the price you enter is the price you'll earn royalty on.
     
  5. Finally, you need to add a cover image. Click ‘Browse files’, choose your image (sized at least 400x300 pixels) and click ‘Done’. NB: choose an image that shows the style, format, theme or content of your bundle so that teachers can see what they’re getting.
     
  6. Share your bundle! Simply click ‘Publish bundle’ and it will be live on the site. It will also appear in your resources dashboard.


Happy bundling!
 

Questions and answers

How do I change the age range on my bundle?

The age and subject tags for your bundle are pulled through from the resources you've included. If they’re not quite right, you'll need to edit them via your individual resources.

Can I edit the resources in a bundle once it's published?

Of course! You can add more resources, or replace a resource with a more up-to-date one, by editing bundles from your dashboard. NB: teachers who’ve already bought your bundle won’t get access to the new resources – they’ll only have access to the resources that were in the bundle when they bought it.

What happens if I delete a resource which is in one of my bundles?

Provided you still have three paid resources in the bundle, the bundle will stay live on the site and the resource will be automatically removed. If deleting a resource means a bundle ends up with less than three paid resources, the bundle will be put into your drafts and won't be available to buy until you update and re-publish it.

AN INSPECTOR CALLS Key Quotations POSTERS Revision GCSE - SEVEN CHARACTERS!

There are seven character posters in this bundle: Eric, Sheila, Arthur and Sybil Birling; Gerald Croft; Inspector Goole; and Eva Smith/Daisy Renton.

Each poster features multiple relevant quotations, linked to character traits. These traits serve as the 'point' in a PEE/PEAS/PETER style response.

The posters work equally well printed in A4 or A3, and you could even miniaturise them further to serve as individual GCSE revision resources.

The posters can be bought individually on TES but this bundle allows you to save £4. Please look at the other resources I have available (for sale and for free) and if you have downloaded one that you have found useful I would be really grateful if you could leave a quick review. Thanks!
