Have you created classroom and teacher resources that make the preschool experience better, or the educators job easier? An excellent tool for sharing those resources is to sell them online. Years of experience teach teachers many techniques for reaching a childs mind and imagination, something that is not always taught to young teachers during their education and training.
When young people use resources provided from the experiences of their elders, everyone benefits. You may not realize that your simple methods for doing things can be sold to a young teacher. Well, they certainly can. It may be a better way to create a bulletin board in the classroom, a fun puzzle for teaching math facts, a game for learning the Presidents of the US, a song to learn the states and capitals, or particular process for science projects.
Methods for Selling Online
1. Websites. If you have a great deal of teacher resources, ideas, books, and projects that can be easily and professionally packaged and presented, a personal website might be the best direction for you. You can advertise your website on education sites, teacher resource sites, and educational exchange sites. However, an individual website is usually more costly and time consuming than other options.
2. Auctions. There are several websites where auctions take place 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 52-weeks a year. You can buy or sell almost anything. Because of that your things might get lost amid the vast array of other products available. While that is certainly still a viable source, an auction site that specializes in educational resources and child care businesses is probably a better choice. You simply pay a percentage of what you received for the sell as a fee.
3. Stores on Auction Websites. A possibility that falls between the above two methods are individual stores that are located on auction websites. Your items appear as auction items when a buyer searches a particular product. However, the buyer is then given the opportunity to search yourstore for other products. Its generally less expensive than websites, and easier to manage than individual auctions if you have a lot of items. Educational auction sites are generally preferable due to the enormous amount of products on general auction websites.
The route you choose for selling your teacher made materials depends on the volume of materials available and time you can invest in managing the sales.
