Advertising Information

Thank you for your interest in advertising with HomeschoolReviews.com. We are the largest homeschool curriculum review site on the internet and want to help homeschoolers know about your product or service.

Who will see my ads?

Specifically, people come to our site because they want to see what other homeschooling families think about various curricula. Whether they do this through the Reviews or the Forums on our site, they come with the intent of purchasing. Advertising with us puts your product directly in their path.

In more general terms, homeschooling families are normally two-parent, single-income families. Since many homeschooling parents are of a traditional persuasion, it is normally the mother who stays at home to educate the children. A quick trip to our Forums will bear this fact out. On average, the median income for homeschooling families is higher than other families.

To summarize, the most likely user of HomeschoolReviews.com is probably a stay-at-home mother from a nuclear family with better than average means.

What kind of exposure will my company receive?

HomeschoolReviews.com typically averages 56,000 unique visitors and 1.4 million page views per month. The peak season runs from April through September, but we achieve fairly consistent traffic throughout the year. We have 4 ad slots and your graphical/sidebar ad will run randomly in any of the slots.

We get tons of Google and Yahoo traffic. In fact, search engine traffic is the largest single source of traffic for HomeschoolReviews.com. Most people arrive here by searching a particular product name or using search terms like "curriculum reviews." Chances are the customers you want to reach with your Google or Yahoo ads will end up at HomeschoolReviews.com.

How much will this cost?

There are three methods of advertising with us:

Sidebar/Graphical
These ads measure 160 x 160 and appear on the right-hand side of the page. Pricing is based on a CPM or Cost per Thousand model. In this method, you pay per 1,000 impressions (ad views). For instance, if you purchase 10,000 impressions (ad views) then your ad would run randomly until those 10,000 ads are displayed. If you are worried about the ad views running too fast (i.e. all in one day), you can request that we limit the number of views per day to stretch your ad campaign.

Site Sponsorship:
This program is designed to allow publishers an economical way to advertise across a variety of products. For a flat fee per year, you will have hyperlinks on all review pages of your products. You'll also be able to add an image or product shot and a "buy now" button that will link to your chosen website.

Product Shot / 'Buy Now' button
If you're a publisher with only one or two titles, this option makes the most economical sense. Affordable add-ons, like an image, product shot or company logo, and a 'Buy Now' button can deliver buyers directly to your website.


How do I know how effective my ads are?

Our ad server software is feature packed and allows each of our advertisers to know exactly how many impressions they have used as well as how many clicks they've received in a given timeframe. You will receive a unique username and password so that you can log in at any time and check the progress of your ad campaign. In addition, we will automatically notify you before your ads run out so that you can purchase more if you wish. Site sponsors will need to rely on their own web server statistics for any review links.
