First Steps: Setting Up Shop

Get Started on Teachers Pay Teachers by Setting Up a Great Storefront!

Set Up Your Shop and Start Selling.

We all need a little extra cash each month. Or maybe a summer income. Learn to sell your resources on Teachers Pay Teachers.

We all have a knowledge base of educational resources that goes on for miles! Use what you know mixed with the things you will learn in this course to start creating and selling classroom resources online.

You already create so many things from scratch to supplement your students' education. Selling those same resources to other tired, stressed, and overworked teachers will help make their days easier and put a little "cha-ching" in your pocket!

Are You The Ideal Student?

  • You have ideas that would make great products, but you aren't sure how to start creating them.
  • Starting a TpT shop is on your "to-do" list but you are a little overwhelmed.
  • You are a visual learner or you like to have directions for step by step processes.

What Does This Course Cover?

Wondering how to start this process? Looking at the entire list of things to learn and create can cause you to freeze and not move forward. This course is designed to follow the workflow that I use. From deciding which programs to design my resources with to generating traffic to my store. I cover it all.

Your Instructor

Rhoda Toynbee
Rhoda Toynbee

I’m a teacher who also creates educational resources and graphics. My time is usually spent finding ways to share the information that I have learned with others who would like to learn about technology, creating lessons to sell online, and promoting your side hustle on Pinterest (hint: great graphics!!).

My site offers courses on how to design and sell lessons so you can put a little (or a lot) of cha-ching in your pocket. You have all the ideas in your filing cabinet, my courses will help you share them with your tribe and the rest of the educational community!

Why Sell Your Classroom Resources?

What would you do with a little extra money each month?

  • pay for quality child care
  • pay off debt (student loans anyone?)
  • save for a family vacation
  • not worry about which bill you should cover this month, and which can wait until next month

This is all possible and more. Most likely you are already designing additional activities and resources for your room. Those lessons and displays that you design for your own students could save another teacher loads of time and stress. Dress them up a bit and offer them to the teaching community. Not only will you earn a little extra money, you will be helping out another teacher! That's HUGE!

Realistic Expectations

I started my account years ago as a seller (2013). At the time I was teaching High School Art. My products were clipart that I had already created and that I sold on Etsy as well. My thought process was that "I didn't know enough about teaching art yet to design lessons".

Could I have started creating Elementary resources?

You betcha!!

But I didn't. Instead I put Teachers Pay Teachers out of my mind until 3 years later when I was using it regularly to teach Middle School Social Studies. It dawned on me that I could be designing lessons and selling them too.

I "married" TPT in June 2016. Each month my sales have gone steadily up (with the exception of December) and I am about to bust into the 4 digits for monthly sales. It's not an over night fix. It takes HARD work and TIME.

Should you wait? Or start now?

This is a detailed and helpful resource when you are starting out as a seller on TpT.
