I'M TABITHA CARRO
an elementary school teacher by day and a certified #couchhustler by night.
I've created and sold thousands of educational resources for teachers and promoted them almost entirely with my iPhone. We're talking product photos, graphic designs, explainer videos, social media posts, ordering Papa John's - you name it.
If there was an app to do my laundry, life would be perfect.
Initially I started out with all the expensive camera equipment and complicated software "they" said I needed to promote my products.
I sweated, I stressed, I struggled.
And sure, after an enormous investment of time and money, my product photos looked great. But the process was mentally exhausting and I had no brain energy left for doing the things I really enjoyed in my business.
Something had to give.

ENTER THE IPHONE
In 2007 my husband purchased my first iPhone for me - and for him. (It was one of those "one for me, one for you" kind of deals.) At first I dismissed the little silver device as an impulse buy. I had NO CLUE how much marketing potential it would one day hold for me.
As I slowly transitioned from the CCC system (Camera, Computer, & Complicated software) to just my iPhone to promote my business, I noticed I was saving huge amounts of time and brain energy.
And I started actually having fun while creating promotional items for my products.
THE DAWN OF THE
SMARTPHONE MARKETING SCHOOL
Recently I was able to present my top strategies for iPhone marketing at a teacherpreneur conference (TeacherspayTeachers) in Las Vegas. It was there that I discovered another really fun thing to do (no, not gambling or strip clubs, people - I'm a teacher!).
It was the simple act of sharing with other fellow entrepreneurs about how to get things done anytime, anywhere - with just their iPhones.
And so began the Smartphone Marketing School.
I’m super in love with this guy from Argentina - he happens to be my husband, too, so that works out nice.
We’ve done our share of traveling and thanks to him, I’m fluent in Spanish. That skill landed me my current teaching position as a 4th grade Spanish immersion teacher.
I’m obsessed with my dog, Pookie-Lou. She’s a Yorkie-Poo and melts my heart every day. She’s the only one who will watch my favorite show ‘Impractical Jokers’ with me - reruns and all.
