Tes is seeing incredible growth across the world in 2018, with huge increases in the numbers of new registrants, downloaders and buyers every week… and with such growth we’re excited about the future. In light of this, we want to reassure you that if your views appear to be in decline, there are plenty of things you can try to boost visibility, stand out from the crowd and attract new customers and downloaders. Read on for some tips and guidance from the team, and we also want to hear your comments and ideas on what works for you or things you’d like to try. Volume of new resources and authors year on year: there are thousands upon thousands of new authors and content on Tes and while demand for these is increasing, so too is the competition. We encourage you to actively update old resources, create both timely and ‘evergreen’ content which works all year round. The most successful authors are constantly tweaking, reviewing poor performing resources and making updates where they can. It can be time-consuming, but it pays off. Quality is king: as competition increases on Tes, the demand for quality resources is higher than ever. In addition to reviewing the content included in your resources, check the resources (and the file names too) for typos and don’t over-tag them. Check your views on your resources: if they are not being viewed, try updating the content, titles and descriptions, refreshing or removing material if it is no longer relevant or out of date. Don’t underestimate the power of Google: The majority of Tes users find their resources via Google searches. To ensure you get the benefit, check out our SEO tips on this thread using SEO to title and describe your resources. Less can sometimes be more: having more content doesn’t necessarily help your visibility, so consolidate materials into sets and don’t forget to create bundles too using the Bundle tool. (Pssst… bundles often sell at up to three times the price of individual resources and save customers time and money in the long run!) Bundle up! Increase your traffic through social media: we say it often, and with good reason; traffic from social media into Tes is increasing so make sure you don’t miss out!
