Add Hyperlinks to your TPT Product Descriptions

Hey there Teacher Bloggie Friends!  This is Deniece from This Little Piggy Reads.

Summer is such a great time to get involved in the Bloggie World. This summer Periscope is all the rage.  If you still aren't sure about Periscope, basically it's a video chat app.  You can see the person whose "scoping" but they can't see you.  I think you could use it to flip your classroom.  

If you're on Periscope, follow me....maybe I'll be brave enough to do a broadcast soon.  Leave your Periscope username in the comments and I'll follow you too!  

If you want to grow your business or simply increase your sales on Teachers Pay Teachers, I have a great tip for you!  Include links to similar products in the product description of your best sellers. 

Take note of the red circle around my hyperlinks to other products.  Obviously, I can't track buyers who used the links to purchase another product, but I do know that once I began including links in my product descriptions my sales greatly increased.

If you don't know how to include a hyperlink in your description, the easiest way I know how to do it is by using Easy Hyperlinks.  

Copy & paste the link of your product and then type the words
 that you want to show up.  Press Construct Link 
&'ve got HTML ready to go!  

Copy & paste the HTML code into your product description (when uploading a new product).  You'll see the HTML until you publish the product.  Afterwards, you'll see the Display Text.  

It's easy peasy lemon squeezy!  Good Luck & I'll see you on Periscope! 


  1. I followed you on Periscope. I don't know where I've been but just discovered this about a week ago. I haven't made any yet either. Maybe someday:) @jffahey9
    Are We There Yet?

  2. Thanks for the tip! I had tried it earlier using HTML, but I must've done something wrong, perhaps a space where there shouldn't've been one. I figured it didn't work that way so just gave up. Back I go to try again.

    I so hear you about Periscope. I keep saying it's just because I don't get dressed or do my hair all summer so I don't want anyone to see me. LOL! Deep down I'm just a tad nervous about doing a scope. SOON! I'm one of your followers so I'll be watching for your first scope. My scope name is @teachersdesk6
