An Awesome Pinterest Planner for TpT Sellers!

Seriously? Another Pinterest Post Planner

I’m sure you’ve looked at or downloaded other post planners for Pinterest, but that’s exactly what they are…Pinterest post planners. These planners are more for bloggers. For example, after you’ve downloaded it, you realize the topics suggested for January are Fitness or Healthy Eating. These planners are for bloggers and not what a TpT seller needs. They aren’t a Pinterest Resource Planning Guide for TpT Sellers.

Why You Need a Planner Just for TpT Sellers

You know that your business is different. You may be a blogger, but you’re also are a business that sells teaching resources, and you need a planner that reflects the business you own.

  • Formulating your plan. If you don’t have a plan for scheduling your pins, you'll find yourself repinning the same resources over and over. You may also forget to pin other resources you have.
  • Setting aside time. Probably the biggest reason you need a planner is you don’t have a plan you will find that you dread scheduling pins.
  • A successful Pinterest strategy. You need to have a way of keeping up with your Pinterest strategy, so you know what works and what doesn’t. A planner is a great way of doing just that.

What the Pinterest Resource Planning Guide for TpT sellers includes

What do I pin, and when do I pin it? This guide has all the holidays or special days that are relevant to the classroom listed month by month. It also has the day or date for the days in each month.

Pinterest suggests that you pin 45 days ahead of the holidays and special days so your pin will have time to get into the Pinterest smart feed. I’ve provided approximate times to start pinning your resources now you won’t have to worry about when you should pin a resource. It’s right there for you.

Statistics are at your fingertips. In each month, there is a section to record your number of Average Monthly Viewers, Average Monthly Engaged, and Followers found in your Pinterest Analytics for each month of the year.

Record your top-performing pins. Do you schedule your pins or use a virtual assistant like Polished Tasks Pinterest Management Services? Either way, it’s vital that you know what your top-performing pins are each month for the past year and the current year. With this information, you or your virtual assistant can make informed decisions about what pins brought you the most income for the previous year and repin it. It can also be helpful when you are deciding what kind of new resources you want to create.

If you love to plan ahead, there is a section to list the resources you want to pin for each month.

You can fill in all the information for each month or just the parts you find most useful. When you print this out and fill it in, you have all the information in one easy to find place.

    Wow! Your planner looks amazing! I’ve had a TpT store for awhile with fewer than 25 items in it, and I haven’t really been doing any advertising. I’m amazed that I still make money without even trying…so now I want to step it up a notch and try to figure out how to get my products out there. This is going to be such a huge help to get me started! Thank you so much for the freebie! I will definitely be digging around your blog a little more to see what else you have to offer.
