I Love Meet-Ups!

Sunday, February 22, 2015
When I started blogging and selling on TPT in January of 2013, it was because my good friend Halle told me, under no uncertain circumstances, that I had better start.  Two years, a few dozen products, and hundreds of friends later, I'm pretty glad I listened to her.

I'm lucky to live right between two metropolitan areas- Philadelphia and New York City.  Living here has allowed me to attend 4 different meet-ups with bloggers and sellers from all over the country.  I've met celebri-teachers whose work I adore, and who have inspired me to keep on doing what I do!

Some of the takeaways from yesterday's meetup included: 

Check your Pinterest analytics: if a board isn't working for you, stop pinning to it! 

Join Twitter: lots of professional discussion happening with weekly Twitter chats

Collaborate with buyers and sellers: take product requests and work with sellers to cross promote.

Expand your niche: if you are posting products that can work for grades 2-6, then say that! Choose grades 2, 4, and 6 in your product description, rather than sequential numbers.

Hootsuite: it can manage all your social media.  Kind of like a virtual assistant, but without the expense!

Which of these tips are you going to try? I've been holding off on Twitter, but I guess it's time to jump into the pool!
