*** or TES?

    *** or TES,

    Which one gets you the most sales? Wondering if being in UK with UK based resources makes a difference?

    I definitely get more on TES but helps that I make a more focussed effort here and my resources are aimed at the English curriculum.

    Would anyone like to say if it's worth the time to adjust resources for ***?

    TES obviously more UK friendly and I've only just joined but more sales in first week here than ***. I'm finding reaching bronze tricky as only putting on a few resources with very large in depth content. Don't want to put any little £1 things on. Maybe I should?
     
  7. I have both and barely get any sales on TES. *** is better. However, my items are more difficult to locate on *** and I'm feeling as though that market is flooded. I usually land on page 1 or 2 with TES. I wish I could figure out the 'trick' here. I've got almost 50 resources in my *** shop and I'd like to get them all transferred over.

    Well I seem to be doing much better on TES but that's because I probably have barely any US Twitter followers and because of time differences. Does anyone do well on *** from U.K.?

    TES only manage 10/15 per month on ***

    Had very little success on *** so don't really bother with it much anymore. TES all the way!

    I find *** not UK user friendly. It is designed more for US market. I stopped shot of listing on *** when I found it very tedious.

    Far and away ***. However, my sales are starting to improve on TES so I'm hoping I can do well on both at some point.

    My sales are much better on TES than on ***.

    I started out on *** for about four years now so I am doing much better there. I only started on TES in December and it's moving slowly but I'm hoping that things will get better soon.

    I seem to be in the minority but I really struggle with TES. I'm hoping the more time I spend on the site the easier it will get to navigate. It just seems much more complicated to me, each to their own I guess!

    I wouldn't give up on either. My Tes sales have been steadily increasing over the last few months, whereas my *** sales seem quieter now but improved compared to the same month last year. So, go figure :)

    I never know how to class resources on *** (not being an American). Got a few on there. I make about a dollar every month LOL! On TES I make a good amount every month!

    Definitely TES for me but I do give it more time than *** and the resources I make I actually use in school so they're aligned to the British curriculum. *** is a massive market but, as notsotypicalteachertpt said, it is pretty saturated!
