“Being a former full-time teacher I know how much money can be spent very quickly on resources for your students. The resources alone that I have gotten through your site have been a tremendous blessing to our family. Homeschooling can become a bit pricey, especially if you have kids that catch on quickly and work through curriculum very fast. I have found the resources and support here to feel confident in educating my sons. That is simply priceless! Thank you!” –A very happy Educents customer

What our affiliates have to say
There’s a reason so many of our affiliates stay active in the the program year-round and earn up to hundreds of dollars in commission sales. From our generous commissions to our dedicated support – we pride ourselves on providing affiliates with the tools to achieve their goals. Here are what a few of our partners have to say about the program:
Since I started blogging 3 years ago, I’ve tried so many affiliate programs, most of which fell by the wayside. Educents has been there since the beginning and is by far my favorite! From experience, I can tell they sincerely care about their bloggers, their affiliate program pays the best, their products actually fit my readership, and they even offer product reviews in addition to everything else. What I’ve always thought of as a hobby is suddenly turning into a small business.
-Celena of The Traveling Sisterhood
“Being an affiliate with Educents has given me the chance to naturally promote products I use in our homeschool (like Life of Fred), making my readers really open to listening and grateful that I’ve pointed them toward such a fabulous discount. In other words, it’s been a win-win!”
-Jamie Martin of SimpleHomeschool.net
