Statistics indicate that only about 1 in 5 homeschoolers attend a homeschool convention. Realizing you could easily be one who won't make it to a convention, we created a virtual Sonlight booth. You can learn more about Sonlight without leaving your home.

Sonlight Virtual Booth
Sonlight's Virtual Booth

Here's my dilemma: Stats for convention attendance are low, but the stats for the virtual booth are even lower. Why?

This is where I'd love your input:

If you haven't visited the Sonlight Virtual Booth, would you mind telling me why? Was it because you had no idea it existed? You don't want to visit a Sonlight booth anywhere (real or electronic)? You got all your questions answered some other way? You just figured out everyone on your own?

If you have visited the Virtual Booth, did you like it? Was it helpful? Too slow? Was the information not relevant? Confusing? Did it not work for you?

If you want to learn more about Sonlight, I do encourage you to swing by the Virtual Booth. But, if--like many before you--you'd prefer to get your information another way, you can always chat with a Sonlight Advisor or poke around the website.

Thanks for your feedback!

    Well, I clicked on the link to go see the Virtual Booth over a minute ago. My status bar still says, "Waiting for http://www.adminder.com..." o_O

  2. My first reason for not visiting the virtual booth is because I had no idea it existed.

    Had I known it existed, I probably might have made a cursory visit. But honestly, I've kind of known I wanted to use Sonlight since I first heard about it. And then when we read the reasons to NOT choose Sonlight it mostly sealed the deal. To satisfy my husband who loves research, I looked around at a few other companies, but just to show that they weren't as good as I expected Sonlight to be. :)

    I have studied the Sonlight curriculum. I have shopped the website. I have poured over the catalog. I have even chatted live (more than once) with an advisor. I have subscribed to emails, become friends on Facebook, and added the blog to my favorites list.

    And yet, I am SURPRISED that there is a virtual booth. I had NO idea! I would have definitely checked it out earlier had I known.

    I feel that all of my ordering questions were answered by the live chat, and I love the catalog (sometimes old school is nice). The Sonlight website provides fantastic product information, and the reviews are super helpful. I will still check out the booth though. How cool!

  4. I've looked at it before, but it didn't really seem to add anything to the information I already had. I guess I'm not visual enough. I'd probably rather just have a page of text answering my questions than have to develop the skills to successfully navigate a non-linear interface like the Virtual Booth.

  5. Lisa, looks like something glitched there. It's been working for me since you posted. Have you had a chance to try again? Computers... so fantastic when they work. So totally not when they don't <smile>. Thanks for trying!

    Jennifer, we do work hard to make the important information available up front. And, yes, the 27 Reasons article is fantastic <smile>.

    Colleen, I'm glad you're as active as you are with Sonlight <smile>. We don't talk about the Booth much, partly because it hasn't been a huge success... which may be part of the reason it has been less than successful <smile>.

    Sumpteretc, I'm really visual, and I love videos... but I think you make an important point: Learning to navigate a new space when you're looking for information isn't all that fun if you're busy. New computer games and such are fun because you expect to be invested in that world/space for a while. But if you're in "information acquisition" mode, that's probably not the optimal approach. Good insight!
