This article is for TEACHA! SELLERS.
We know how much effort and care you’ve put into creating a quality resource for other teachers to use. That’s why we want to help you to turn your resource into a good online product that comes up easily in search results and which encourages downloads by customers.
When uploading your resource, it is a good idea to:
Name your resource
Include the grade, subject, term and topic. This makes it easier for users to see if this resource is relevant to them, at first glance.
Include a resource description
This is your space to flesh out the value of your resource. Include grade, subject, term, topic and any additional information on the resource.
Add more detail to your resource
Adding detail makes your resource easier to find. Define the grade the resource is designed for, the resource type, the CAPS subjects it's based on, the language it's created in, the term the resource should be used in, and whether a memorandum is included.
Add additional curriculum details
If applicable, you can also identify subjects from the IEB curriculum for your resource. This is optional.
Upload the resource files
Ensure that you have double-checked that the file is ready for selling before uploading it:
- Ensure that the content in your file complies with copyright law.
- If you have used this file at your school, be sure to remove any school information.
- Give the file a relevant file name (i.e. name the file according to grade, topic, etc.).
- Ideally, upload a PDF, as well as the original file (in case your customer wants to edit it).
Upload a featured image
The featured image is the cover image that customers will see when browsing the marketplace. The minimum size of the featured image is 700px width x 700px height.
Although many sellers have a generic feature image, we find that unique images that highlight what is being sold catch the customers’ attention a lot more (grade, subject, topic, image, store name).
There are plenty of free online tools, like Canva, that you can use to create a great featured image.
Add resource gallery images
Gallery images are previews for the resource. You can do this easily by taking a screenshot of your resource, but is important that you either watermark your images or you lower the quality of the image (so that users do not just print it straight from the preview page without purchasing the resource).
Add a resource video preview
A video preview gives your customers a better overview of what they will find in your resource.
Include a regular price and sale price
Your regular price should be realistic (ask yourself: would you pay your asking price for the resource?). If you would like to schedule a sale, you can set your sale price to be less than the regular price, and enter the sale duration.
