Key Takeaways From This Episode

  • A trend is a general direction into which something is changing or veering toward.
  • As business owners, we have to constantly stay informed on what is trending in the industry so that we can meet the needs of our customers and ideal teacher customers who may see our resources in the search results.
  • There are a variety of trends to be aware of in your product listings, marketing strategy and in the type of resources you sell.
  • Offer print and digital resources in one resource or bundle - it makes it easy for teachers to assign! 
  • Use bright colorful mockups in place of photos with screenshots of your resources, but don't overdo it!
  • Try using landscape - 16:9 preview orientation. It's an easy way for potential buyers to see EVERYTHING on one page without having to scroll to see on desktop and on mobile.
  • Offer a variety of differentiated options in your resources to add value to what the teacher is getting.
  • Make your resources easy-to-prep for teachers!
