    Hi everyone,

    I recently started uploading the many resources I have put together over the years of teaching to TES and have been very pleased with the number of sales I have made in such a short time. After doing a little research on these forums, my numbers certainly don't compare to many others, but still, I never thought that selling my resources would be possible (or selling this quickly at least) and I am very happy with how things are progressing.

    The reason for my post is to ask if anyone else is primarily using Twitter as a way to promote their shop and resources? I have created an account and am slowly building my followers. Here is my link: @HumanitiesBox

    Just a thought, is there anyone else who would be interested in making a "handshake agreement" to help promote each other's tweets? A re-tweet for re-tweet sort of arrangement is what I am thinking. I know that there are many people who have a lot more followers than I do and that I would probably be getting the better deal, but I would really appreciate the support and extra promotion in these early stages.

    Please let me know if this is something that you would be happy to help with. Thanks

    This sounds like a lovely idea, but sadly, I'm in a worse position than you! I've only just got around to making a Twitter account, but I'll gladly follow you and re-tweet your tweets.

    I'm @PrimaryPros

    If anyone else wants to re-tweet or follow, I'll gladly do the same for them.

    I've followed and will re-tweet your posts. Would you mind doing the same for me? I have been setting up my Twitter presence over the past couple of days and am uploading my own resources here on TES with the intention of starting a shop asap.
