If you’re looking for a course that will tell you how to make a million dollars selling teaching resources, there isn’t one. We are here to tell you we will never make ridiculous promises or use fake testimonies from our seller friends urging you to buy this course before the “course window” closes and adding an affiliate link so they can make a buck off you as well. We know you’re smart enough to know that the course window is just a sales tactic, the testimonies aren’t actually helpful because there’s an ulterior motive, and that being a top seller, and staying one, takes hard work, a lot of years and a whole lot of sacrifice and frustration along the way. It’s not a beautiful, grateful, #blessed ride the entire time. It’s messy, want-to-punch-your-computer-and-throw-it-out-the-window infuriating, and “why do I ever start a bundle if I can’t meet my own damn deadlines?” stupid at times. So, we’re sharing something that’s helped both of us alleviate some of the stress that comes with being a teacher author.
Here’s where we pitch you our course. Except instead, we’re going to make you visualize it like an infomercial. One of those old ones from the 90’s (i.e. think: Shamwow or that stuff you can spray on the bottom of a your boat that you put a screen door on for some reason).
Picture a classroom. Not a real one, a fake, stock photo one with a green chalkboard and “ABC” written on it in perfect lettering, a stack of books and a shiny red apple on top, complete with that stock photo “nerdy” kid with the black rimmed glasses and green sweater vest (circa 2015).
Jen enters. She’s wearing a floral dress with a yellow belt and yellow cardigan, complete with pearl buttons and matching pearl earrings. She sits down at the wooden teacher desk, looks directly at the camera and says, “Have you ever started working on a resource, only to keep putting it on the back burner every few months? Have you ever taken on a huge bundle and felt overwhelmed at how long it will take you to finish it? Well, I have. And let me tell you, I have just the solution for you! It’s called, Creating Collaboratively, and it is just spectacular. We have three thousand units left, so pick up the phone and wait, who’s knocking on the door?”
Martha, enters, wearing a slick pantsuit and shouts, “Y’all ready for this?!” while the popular Jock Jam plays and they both get jiggy with it. KIDDING. But now you have that fun little visual to think about while we tell you what our course includes and what you can expect if you decide to purchase it.
Okay, so this is REALLY what you’re getting.
After a few years of successfully creating resources together, Jen from Teaching in the Tongass and Martha from Primary Paradise have decided to create a step by step guide to how it works. We’re not making any crazy promises. Instead, we’re sharing actionable steps to collaborate on teaching resources.
In this course, you’ll learn all about:
•Finding a Partner
•Creating the Contract
•Clipart and Fonts
•Dividing the Work
•After the Listing
•Payment & Taxes
WHY would you want to collaborate on a resource? Easy. Two heads are better than one, and it’s a great way to work smarter, not harder, on resources that are long and tedious, or maybe you just need a fresh perspective.
IMPORTANT: This is not a course on how to work with a V.A. (Virtual Assistant). This is not a course on how to get someone else to do all of your work. This is not a course on how to open a separate store with another seller. This is not a course telling you how to make clipart. This is not a course on how to make editable files. This is not a course on how to make sandwiches. Although, we encourage you to eat sandwiches in your free time. This IS a course on how to create a shared resource in an equitable way with another teacher author partner.
If you’re looking for a feel good course that will spout off positive affirmation after positive affirmation, course instructors that are 100% put together and glamorous… well, keep looking. If you’re interested in co-authoring a resource, but you don’t know where to start or how to handle the nitty, gritty deals, add this puppy to your cart, and let’s get started. And as a bonus for even coming to this page in the first place, here is a little cute something from Jen to say thank you.
