Are You Wasting Your Awesome TpT Reviews? (Tuesday Tip)

Positive TPT reviews are one of the most important assets we have as TPT sellers – and yet most of us don’t leverage them as much as we could. The typical way that product reviews help is in terms of increasing our conversion rates – when a customer lands on a product page, the positive reviews help convince them that the product is a good buy. But what if you could use those reviews to also help you get more traffic to your product pages in the first place? Here’s a quick strategy for making those reviews work harder for you.

How to take a review screenshot

  1. If you haven’t done so already, install the TPT app on your phone. It’s best to use the app for this rather than the website, because the app formats the reviews in a way that is aesthetically pleasing. It’s also quick and easy to take a screenshot!
  2. Navigate to your dashboard, and then tap “New Reviews”. The app will show you a nice list of all your reviews, in order with most recent at the top.
  3. Look for a review that you would like to feature. The best reviews feature outcomes for the teacher and/or students (they highlight how the product made the teacher’s life better). From the list, tap on the review to bring up the full on your screen.
  4. Take a screenshot of the review (using iPhone or Android).
  5. Once you have the image of the review, crop it so that the image is just the review and no longer obviously looks like a cell phone screen shot.

How to use your review images

Once you have your cropped screenshot, now you’re ready to use that review to its full potential. The ways you can use this image are only limited by your imagination and your business goals, but here are some ideas to get you started:
  • Use tpt review images in your product thumbnails
  • Post tpt reviews on your social media with a link to the product page (a great way to switch it up if you typically post cover images or thumbnails)
  • Use the image to create a “featured review” image for your store’s quote box or banner
  • Include a TPT review image in an email about that product to your mailing list
  • Use them as images in your blog posts (when relevant)
TPT reviews take time and patience to accumulate – when you do get reviews that sing the praises of your products, it’s important to leverage them as much as you can. What reviews would you like to show off to the world?
