ADVERTISING SOLUTIONS:

Graphical Ads:
First, choose the HSI websites on which you want your ads to appear — exclusively on HomeSchoolReviews.com, Home-School-Inc.com, HomeSchoolLegal.com or any combination. Your graphical ad rotates randomly among the limited advertising spaces (4) within each site’s ad tower. Ads measure 160 x 160 and acceptable formats include JPEG or GIF. Ads are purchased by impression/ad view and pricing is based on a CPM or “cost per thousand” model. Our minimum ad buy is $100 per month for three months or a total of $300. Current rates are posted below, or contact us for a customized advertising plan that will fit your budget.

Current Rates (effective October 1, 2010):
January: $6 per 1,000 ad views
February - March - April: $3 per 1,000 ad views
May - June - July - August - September: $6 per 1,000 ad views
October - November - December: $3 per 1,000 ad views

As an added-value service, all Advertisers receive a free listing and page in our vendor showcase known as the Homeschool “MarketPlace.” Copy for any MarketPlace page is at the sole discretion of the Advertiser. MarketPlace is accessible via the homepage of Home-School-Inc.com.

Site Sponsorship on HomeSchoolReviews.com (Price: $1,500 annually)
This advertising program is designed for curriculum companies that have products we list for review. In this program, the title of the curriculum, the ‘more information’ link to your website, and an image or logo will be featured in tandem with posted curriculum reviews for all of your company’s products. In addition, your company will be listed as a Site Sponsor on the HomeSchoolReviews.com homepage.

Product Shot AND Buy Now! button on HomeschoolReviews.com (Price: $50/month w/6 mo. min.)
If you’re a publisher with only one or two titles listed for review, this option makes the most economical sense. Add an image, product shot or company logo, plus a ‘Buy Now!’ button to the landing page of reviews for your product and send buyers directly to your website!

E-Newsletter on Home-School-Inc.com (Price: $250 per insertion for Top Section; $150 for Lower Third)
Break Time, our opt-in e-newsletter, is published every Tuesday and delivered to a loyal readership of just under 40,000 registered families. Price per insertion includes up to 300 words of promotional copy with links, plus corresponding image or ad (160 x 160, JPEG or GIF) with link back to your website. Cost per insertion to appear in the top “Freshly Brewed” section is $250; cost per insertion for lower-third of the e-newsletter is $150. In addition to being emailed, Break Time also appears on the Home-School-Inc.com homepage until the next issue is published.
