Using Your TPT Note to Followers

Using Your TPT Note to Followers

Is the Note to Followers worth using? Some sellers say it isn't because they never look at them. I used to think that way as well. Then I decided to give it a try again. I became a believer in using them. Here's why:

1) It's a great way to a) provide an exclusive freebie as a "thank you" without having to do a flash freebie that they probably won't see and b) remind them of your new products, old products, and seasonal products.

2) It's free promotion going directly to people that clicked on the green star. Okay some of them may just be following you because of a giveaway or something, but maybe you'll hook them in with your fabulous notes.

3) Over 50 followers clicked on the download link I provided. Yes, I have over a thousand followers, but that is over 50 people continuing to interact with me. Buyers that aren't sellers don't always act like seller-buyers. Many of them do open those notes, so send them out!
 You can send out a note every 30 days. I would NOT waste it on just announcing a site wide sale. TPT puts up banners announcing the sale right on the site. Also, everyone puts up images on all of the Social Media outlets to announce a site wide sale. So use it for something more important.
 You can access your Note to Followers from the drop down menu or the Marketing tab on your dashboard.

 You can add images to your note. Your image needs a URL. You can host your image on a site such as Flickr or Tinypic. You can also copy from your Mailchimp newsletter and everything copies over (images and hyperlinks). You can also host on a secret Pinterest board. If you are using an image already on TPT, just right-click on the image and choose "copy image address". Click on the tree image in the toolbar and insert the URL in the pop-up box.

 You can hyperlink to products, blog posts, social media, etc. Highlight the text you want to link. Click on the chain link image in the toolbar and insert the URL in the pop-up box. If you want to track the number of clicks, use a bit.ly link.

 Do not use emojis. This evidently causes problems with your post showing everything.
 You should be following your own store. If not, go click your own green star. Once your note arrives, be sure to check it. I had one go out that didn't attach the image even though it showed the image on the preview. If this happens, submit a ticket to TPT. They were able to delete the note and allow me to resend it.

Happy Note sending!!
