Suggested ideas on how to distribute the SOW:
-All SOW Representatives must have a SOW Curriculum set (Teacher Edition, Resource Edition, Student Edition), SOW video and/or SOW audio tape to show interested families.
-Freely lend or place a refundable deposit on the SOW video tapes and /or SOW Curriculum set. Permission is given to copy the SOS newsletter and SOW audio tape to give freely with a SOW brochure.
-Attend homeschool fairs and conferences. Usually this requires a registration fee for a booth space, so to cover cost of fees required, SOW will pay 30% commission on all SOW sales made at conventions or conferences that require a fee. A copy of the convention registration fee and/or conference confirmation notice must be included with any SOW orders to receive this 30% commission. Call SOW office to guarantee that there will be only one representative attending the same conference. Write to your state homeschool representatives for homeschool conference information or see Teaching Home magazine.
-Place an ad in a homeschool newsletter, magazine, or other. To make sure there is only one SOW representative using that advertisement, permission from the SOW office is required. Also, a personalized SOW ad will be needed to assure credit of SOW materials to you.

-share, anytime and anywhere it is appropriate-- about what is happening in your home as a result of being in God's word. When others visit your home show them your children's workbooks.
