New: Party Posts to Innovative Connections!

"Get to Know Our TpT Friends" Party Posts! 
       Any TpT Teacher-Author is encouraged to be a "Teacher-Author Friend" for Innovative Connections!  My hopes in doing this are for most of us to get to "know" each other ---(via internet I guess--ha!) & learn from each other!!
      The upside for you? More exposure & traffic, not to mention a wealth knowledge from featured TpT Friends!!  Tons of TpT sellers out there have tons of knowledge yearning to be exposed!  That's what TpT is for, right?? 
All grade levels & subject areas are encouraged to participate!
      I contemplate all the time about moving back to 2nd grade & I'm teaching 8th grade!! We never know! So, there's lots to learn from teachers of all grades & areas!  Take a second, fill in the Entry Form (Also Found on Top-Right Sidebar of My Blog), AND...Let's begin our "Get to Know Our TpT Friends" Party Postings!
      Due to the number of entries, I'll be submitting these "party posts" bi-weekly instead of weekly as I had originally planned! I don't want anyone to sign up and it take 2 months to get posted. That's no fun!! Plus, once you are posted, you & your link are on my blog for future access by all visitors!
Thank you so much in advance for your participation!

Your Best Piece of Advice for Sellers?

What is your best piece of advice for TpT Sellers, especially new sellers?
or email it to me:
Include a link to your blog or store in message so people can visit you!
TpT Sellers Advice:
1. Create & Wait!
2. Make your main free item a product that is really amazing so that buyers will want to look at your other products.  -Science Stuff
3. Create a quality freebie that truly represents your work. -Go Figure
4. Getting your links out there so they show up on Google searches is important. If people  can't find your products, they'll never know how wonderful they are! -Tracee Orman 
5. My best advice is to create QUALITY items. I see so many people who make cutsey stuff just to be cute, but not stuff they would use to teach in their classroom. Everything I post is something I would use or have used in my classroom. If you post things you would use, other teachers will want to use them too. -Heidi Raki
6.Offer more than one of your products for free so customers can see the quality of your products! -Lori Wolfe
7. Quality is better than Quantity! -Terri's Teaching Treasures
8.I've been making my own stuff for years--for my OWN classroom. If you need it, chances are, someone else will, too! -Teacher Tam's Educational Adventures
