Why a Print and Digital Homeschool Magazine is Appealing to Your Customer

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

There has been a substantial increase in the number of parents looking for home education help over the past couple of years. We’ve seen that in research from the National Home Education Research Institute, and we’ve seen the increase across our platforms. As the publisher of the leading trade magazine for homeschool families, we can also affirm that print is still appealing to the growing market demographics we’re experiencing now.

Our magazine is published in both print and digital formats, and whether viewing the print or digital version, the ads that our readers see will generally be regarded with higher credibility.

That is because trusted print media that consistently offers readers high-quality, reliable content develops credibility across all platforms. 

When your brand appears in a respected print publication, the mindset of the engaged reader associates the same positive feelings for the magazine with the brands that appear in it. This is known as the “halo effect,” which means even though the reader may not know your brand yet, you are regarded as trustworthy, which makes generating leads and sales much easier. 

We help our advertisers place their brand in readers’ hands, so they can engage with potential customers in meaningful ways. The best way to do that is to show products that relate to the articles. Check out the magazine topics of future issues and see what themes are related to your business. 

Here are a few other benefits of print advertising:

  • Magazine and newspaper ads are considered more trustworthy than any other type of advertising.
  • Magazine readers enjoy the ads throughout the magazine that go along with the particular topic they are reading about.
  • Print ads live on well past the publication date—especially in leading magazines like The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine that are considered keepsakes.

Below are a few of the major methods we use to get our magazine into the hands of homeschoolers in print and digital formats. Also see the magazine advertising advantages that can provide a long-term avenue for reaching parents.
