Come to the TPT UK Conference!

Come to the TPT UK Conference!

I love how connected you can be online, you can talk to people on the other side of the world, meet people you would never have in real live and make strong connections.

On the 20th of February 2020 there is going to be a TPT Conference in Wales! I already have my...

The Dreaded Dip!

This worked well for me and I was happy with it. When I started to treat this as my business I started to look at my analytics, I started to pay closer attention to the products that sold and I realised I was missing something important.  If people were interested in buying my unit on the Ancient Egyptians for example, they would probably also be interested...

What can I talk about on social media?

What can I talk about on social media?

A great question today: Hi Charlee, I want to follow your advice to put myself out there and post on social media a lot, particularly stories. The problem I have is I don't know what to say. If I just talk about my products I feel like I'm just saying my description again. What should I talk about? Thanks I think this is a problem we all struggle with, you don't want to be too pushy and just sound like a sales person but you need to talk about your products. Here are my tips: 1 - Your products rock!...
