Newsletter Advertising

 

MEMBERS OF HINTS

CLASSIFIEDS

Members of HINTS may advertise used books or other school-related materials in the classified section for no charge. Limit 25 items per issue, same items may be listed 2 times (2 issues). While we will not prohibit the advertising of other items (houses, Panther tickets, etc.), we ask you to use discretion, as this is primarily a homeschool newsletter.

ADS

Classes & tutoring are considered advertisements (see below), and HINTS members are not charged for this advertising (this is one of your membership “perks”). Any “boxed” ads (business card or larger) will incur a charge. Sizes and prices are listed below. Please make checks or money orders payable to HINTS, and send to the editor’s address (see box to the right.) 

Also note that you may run these ads a total of 6 times per year (August—August), in any combination of HINTS newsletter or CHEA newsletter (i.e., you could run your ad in CHEA 2 times and HINTS 4 times). Ads may be emailed to be created by the editor, or created and emailed to be imported into the document, or camera-ready art may be sent to the editor and will be scanned in. Editor reserves the right to edit for clarity or fit.

PLEASE: if you submit an ad to CHEA, DO NOT submit it to HINTS the same month — everyone in HINTS receives the CHEA, and we will not duplicate ads on the months that CHEA comes out.


CLASSES & TUTORING

These ads will be included under the “Other Opportunities” section, again for no charge to HINTS members. These ads will not be “boxed.” Limit 6 times per year. Please include pertinent information, but be brief. Please also note that you are a HINTS member on your correspondence to the editor.


SEMINARS

Seminars related to education will be included in this section under “Other Opportunities.” Please indicate your name and that you are a HINTS member on all correspondence. No charge.

ACTIVITIES & EVENTS

Educational activities and events of interest to homeschoolers will be included in this section under “Other Opportunities.” Please indicate your name and that you are a HINTS member on all correspondence. No charge.


CHEA MEMBERS

CHEA members (members of other homeschool support groups) may advertise under the same guidelines as members. Please include NAME OF SUPPORT GROUP you are a member of on all correspondence.



NON-MEMBERS

CLASSES & TUTORING

CHEA non-members will be charged $10/issue for ads that are not “boxed.” This is the most economical advertising for piano teachers, art instructors, etc. Please make checks payable to HINTS, and send to the editor’s address. Limit 6 times per year. “Paid advertisement” will appear at the bottom of the ad.

ADS

These are the “boxed” ads, business card and larger. Sizes and prices for non-members are listed below. “Paid advertisement” will appear at the bottom of the ad. Please make checks payable to HINTS, and send to the editor’s address. If payment is not received by the 20th of the month, the ad will be pulled from that issue. Limit 6 times per year, any combination of HINTS & CHEA, as described under HINTS members.

PLEASE: if you submit an ad to CHEA, DO NOT submit it to HINTS the same month—everyone in HINTS receives the CHEA, and we will not duplicate ads on the months that CHEA comes out. Other information is the same as for HINTS members.


SPONSORING A NON-MEMBER AD

If a CHEA member (members of other homeschool support groups) wishes to sponsor an announcement or ad by a nonmember, please follow the guidelines for “Members.” You MUST INCLUDE YOUR NAME AND SUPPORT GROUP if you sponsor someone, as this will appear on the ad.
