    Icon4 Advertising for personal businesses? READ THIS FIRST!

    This forum is open for anyone to pass along information about helpful classes and tutoring opportunities; however, businesses and other organizations must follow a few simple guidelines:


    1. Businesses must be local and pertinent to the homeschool community. This is to encourage passing along helpful classes, events, etc. in the area. But we do not want ads for tire alignments posted on the main forums. Homeschoolers with businesses unrelated to homeschooling may feel free to advertise in the "services" forum (see below).
    2. You may post your opportunities once per month, unless special permission is given. This will keep the forum from becoming "spammy." If you have several events in one month, however, just let us know! We will probably allow multiple posts in such a case.



    Posting is a great way to get the word out, but don't forget your other options! Here is a rundown of the other means of advertising on our forums:


    • Articles (free option): One way to advertise for free is to write informative articles for our website. At the end of each helpful article you write, we will allow you to include a short blurb advertising your business. For example, if you teach classes on writing, you may write an article about practical ways parents can encourage their children to write more. At the end, you may include your contact information, a brief description of the services you offer, and a link to your website. Articles are a great way to advertise because they are permanently available and they give your business an image of being helpful and concerned. To get started, log into wingsgroup.org and visit the articles section here. Choose "Create Article" and click the "go" button located under the green menu bar.
      Note: All articles will be placed in a moderation queue to be approved before being posted. Articles must be helpful to homeschoolers and we will not allow articles that are blatant advertising.




    • Signatures (free option): Another way to advertise for free is to simply add an automatic signature (such as you may already use in your e-mail responses) to the bottom of your posts. This is another great way to advertise your business/classes in a more subtle way as you become active on the forums, helping in your area of expertise. Forum members will see your signature on your posts and if you have been helpful, they will likely contact you about your services. This is very effective when done consistently and in a "non-salesy" manner and it allows you to get your name out there more than just posting in the forums once a month. Of course, you may also respond to enquiries people may post about your services. To add a signature, see this link (from the "Forum Tutorials" forum): Creating a Signature the Simple Way.




    • Services Forum (low-cost option): Posting in our "Services" forum is the cheapest means of advertising and is especially for homeschoolers who own businesses that are not homeschool-related. This is a regular forum where members can post information about their non-homeschool-related businesses/services for a very minimal fee. To post in the services forum, visit the forum home page, or click here.




    • Banner Advertising: Our banner advertising is available at varying prices starting from just $20 (subject to increase as traffic increases) and can be found in the Paid Subscriptions area. You will need to contact Danielle (jpapadpapa) first to be sure there is available space. Once a space is confirmed, here are directions:
      • Be sure you are logged in (or, if you have not yet registered, you will need to do that).
      • Click on "Settings" in the top right-hand corner. (Or, simply click this link: https://www.wingsgroup.org/forums/payments.php and to be taken directly to the page where you will make your selection).
      • Scroll down and click on Paid Subscriptions in the left side panel. This is where you will make your selection. Once you click the “Order” button, you will be taken through the process of paying via Paypal.


      Note that we now also offer a design service for just $20!
