'How to Become a Successful TES Author - Step by Step Guide' - A 'Must Have' For Authors!

I began to produce educational resources for TES in August 2015. When I look back at my early resources I cringe! I made so many mistakes…. Since then I have come a long way and learned so much. I currently have 36 TES recommended resources. One of my resources made over 900 sales in the space of a few weeks and earned nearly £2000 in royalties.In this 26-page, step by step guide I share my mistakes and my successes to help you avoid making the same mistakes 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 resourcesMaximising the selling potential of resourcesCreating a cover pageSourcing imagesCopyrighting your resourcesPricing your resourcesProduct DescriptionsHTML codes for creating bold, italics, underlining, bullet pints and numbered lists for product description pageAdding links to other products and your shop in descriptionsCreating your TES shopBrandingIncreasing the visibility of your resourcesPromoting your products through social media platformsPromoting yourselfDealing with reviewsGeneral advice The resource also contains hyperlinks to some very useful sites and tools which will help you in making and promoting your products.Another valuable author resource.Author Calendar and Planner Nine out of ten of my top selling resources are seasonal resources and special days resources.

SaleTeacher Excel Markbook

Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.
