Summertime is right around the corner and your Teachers pay Teachers sales have likely come to a screeching halt. The decrease in sales is enough to make you second guess everything you’re doing, but the reality is that June and July are likely going to be slower than any other months throughout the year. The good news is that August is coming and the customers will be back in full force.
This summer I’ve already put in a plan into place to start pumping out some new products. That’s not to say that I’m going to put off having some fun also. There is plenty of fun on the agenda, including a cruise and a trip out to Vegas with my wife for the TpT conference.
If you remember back to my e-book I talked developing a system to achieve your goals. It’s great to have a goal to create 5 new products this summer, but if you don’t have the system to make that happen then you basically have nothing.
Do you have any products that are almost done? 90% of a completed product is still 0% to a customer. Get those suckers wrapped up and move on to the next one.
Tips to Streamline Your Product Creation Process
- Write item descriptions first and then build the product from them.
- Schedule blocks of time that are specifically dedicated to creating products, and creating products only. No email, social media, browsing allowed.
- Batch schedule my social media updates, blog posts, and tweets so that I can free up time to create more products. In fact, this post was actually written about two weeks ago and scheduled to post on this day.
- Create units/products that can be bundled together.
How do you plan on spending your summer? Are you going to focus on TpT? I would love to hear some of your favorite tips in the comments.
