Twice as Effective as Any Other Source of Homeschool Advertising!
Just a brief note to let you know about our experience with
advertising in Practical Homeschooling Magazine.
As you know, our company is small, but growing steadily. When we
choose a source of advertising, it is important for each dollar spent to
achieve a specific return on investment. Although our combined
homeschooling advertising budget is relatively small, we have found
that our ads in your magazine consistently perform well. As much as
I believe that this is a function of a well-designed and well placed ad,
and the fact that we consistently advertise in each issue, I do believe
it has much to do with the regard that your magazine has within the
As a matter of course, when people purchase our programs, we always ask where it was
that they first saw us or heard about us. On a percentage basis, actual responses
generated from your magazine outweigh any other source of homeschool advertising by a factor of at least 2 to 1. In addition to this, people routinely comment on the high-regard they they have for both you and your publication. In fact, what we have observed, is that our product is, in itself, held in higher regard purely as a result of our presence in your magazine.
Thank you for your
work, your efforts
and your support.

evaluate curriculum and offers much needed support to
pursue this "alternative" education."

Great Ideas and Encouragement
"I've been reading PHS since we started homeschooling in

great ideas to try and encouragement from the "Letters"
section each month."

Product Reviews Readers Trust
"I love the product reviews which often are true critical
reviews. I am glad that you publish the con's of some
products rather than only publishing positive reviews.
Knowing both strengths and weaknesses of a product, book,
or curriculum is important."
Christine Montano CT, US

wit, wisdom and encouragement."

more from your columnists than I did in college for my
