Conference Sponsorship Information

Thanks so much for your interest in sponsoring Homeschool Creations and having your product promoted! You probably would like to learn a little more about me and my site before deciding if Homeschool Creations is a blog you would like to sponsor.

A Few Details

  • Blog Beginnings ~ Homeschool Creations began on December 18, 2007 as a means for me to track the things we were doing during our school time with our children. I already had another blog in place, No Ordinary Moments, for general family fun, but my homeschool blog quickly grew as I began writing curriculum reviews and getting to know other moms through blogging.
  • Primary Focus of Homeschool Creations: Currently I share about our geography studies, toddler and preschool ideas, Bible time and printables, and also various curriculum resources for families.

Homeschool Creations is written only by myself ~ Jolanthe Erb. I also write No Ordinary Moments, co-manage Totally Tots and occasionally write for Heart of the Matter Online. I am also active in our local homeschool co-op and activities.

The Relevant Conference

The Relevant Conference is focused toward Christian women bloggers and will be an opportunity for me to be face-to-face with other homeschooling moms. While I am a very social person, this excites me more than anything ~ being able to connect with other women who are at a similar place in life and being able to share and learn with them!

I am looking for a sponsor to assist in travel, conference fee, and hotel costs for the upcoming Relevant Conference in October 2010. If you would be willing to sponsor me for the Relevant Conference, it will give me the opportunity to make more connections in the blog world, learn even more about networking from some amazing ladies in the blogging world, and also teach me more about how to grow my blog ~ ultimately giving you more exposure!

        Estimated costs

    • conference registration ~ $225 
    • hotel ~ $185
    • travel/fuel expenses ~ $65 fuel

Total: $475

There will be approximately 250 in attendance at the conference, many who have a large sphere of influence in the blog world and social media. You can see a list of the amazing speakers here.

Representing Your Company

  • I will be your advocate at the conference where I will be able to network with hundreds of other women face-to-face.
  • I will offer you four months of top-billing advertising on my blog {worth $ 40/month} ~ much of this will be during PRIME back-to-school planning time!!
  • I will write about your company before, during and after the conference ~ I would love to do a video post {vlog} and will also promote your products using our family blog, facebook, and twitter.
  • I will GLADLY wear any logo wear that you may have available
  • I will have a laptop skin on my computer during the conference with an ad for your company and products.
  • I will run a giveaway contest during the time of the conference {or several smaller giveaways featuring the different products, to pull my blog readers into all the fun.
  • I will offer ‘hands-on’ demonstrations during the conference for other moms to see your product in action.

Additional Exposure for Your Company and Products

I write for several other blogs and depending on the product that I am sent, they may be cross-referenced on those blogs. No Ordinary Moments is a site where I frequently share items that we are using along with book reviews and more.

Products I feature:

If you are interested in partnering with my blog, please contact me to discuss any of the following options further:

Reviews and/or Giveaway

  • Having your product reviewed. Our family is always willing to try new products and I write a detailed review on the product. I let my readers know about the product, how the product worked in our family, and my recommendations on the product. I always strive to give my HONEST opinion on a product. If I have any problems, I always contact that company first to resolve any issues.
  • Hosting a giveaway. I am always open to hosting a giveaway of your product for my readers.
  • Giveaways should be for something that I have used personally. I am not comfortable hosting a giveaway for something that I do not have personal experience with and cannot recommend myself. As fun as giveaways are, I have created a relationship with my readers and will only recommend/giveaway items that will benefit them.
  • Review items should be sent prior to a giveaway event. I will happily write a review of products that I receive for reviews and giveaways, but need to have sufficient time to use the product myself and with my family. Whenever possible, I try to include pictures of our personal use of the product.
  • Giveaway items should be shipped directly to the winners. To help lessen the cost of shipping items twice, giveaway sponsors are responsible for shipping items to the winners. I will gather all information prior to shipping and put the winner in contact with the sponsor.

Additional Exposure for Giveaways

I write for several other blogs and depending on the product that I am sent, they may be cross-referenced on those blogs. No Ordinary Moments is a site where I frequently share items that we are using in our household {cooking, organizing, books, family items, etc…}. The giveaways I host:

  • May require readers to visit your site and answer a specific question in order to enter the giveaway. This will increase traffic to your site as well as ensure entrants are reading and learning about your product.
  • Will be promoted via Twitter and Facebook.
  • May include a special logo button that others can post on their sites/blogs to help spread the word about the giveaway.
  • May include pictures of our family using your product. My readers enjoy seeing the product as we used it and it helps them know I am sincere about the product.
  • Will only include products that I truly feel are beneficial to my readers. If it is a product that I can’t stand behind, I will not promote it.
  • Will include direct links to your blog along with logo buttons from your company. Feature giveaways will include logos in my sidebar as well that link to your site.
  • Will be listed in the Treats 4 Your Tot feature on Totally Tots if it is Tot-friendly.
