MySchoolSwap.coma free classified advertising network created for schools and the communities that surround themintroduces SwappleBlog. This new blog will be an informative and whimsical collection of practical tips and ideas for parents of school age children. Topics will include trends in the resale market, creative school fundraising, how-to-do guides and product reviews.
SwappleBlog will also serve as an introduction to MySchoolSwap. As an advertising network created to benefit schools, MySchoolSwap donates half of its paid sponsor revenue to schools nationwide. Content of the blog will often promote the features and perks of this recently launched website.
The Top Ten Used Childrens Items to Sell Online encourages parents to sell or donate childrens items that are outgrown or no longer used. Sought after used kid gear includes clothing, books and brand name toys. The SwappleBlog list offers insightful suggestions for selling and is not based on data related to actual success rates.
While popular, high-volume advertising and auction websites are mentioned as excellent outlets for resale, this blog entry also presents MySchoolSwap as a unique option with distinguishable differences. These differences include innovative School Pages, user-specific categories and a philanthropic business model.
A School Page is a wall of ad listings posted by members connected to that school in some wayparents, volunteers, school staff and the local business community. This creates a familiar environment for communication and exchanges. Every preschool through high school has a School Page and if ones not in the MySchoolSwap database already, it can be added. Any organization dedicated to the enrichment of children is also eligible.
MySchoolSwap has also created a friendly and secure space for its anticipated audience. It includes categories like Prom Gowns, Scouts and School Notices while excluding categories such as Personals and Discussion Forums. Furthermore, membership is required and users must be 18 years of age or older to join.
Finally, the big difference MySchoolSwap boasts is its mission to give back. MySchoolSwap donates 50 percent of Spirit Sponsor ads to any school an advertiser chooses. This not only puts advertisers in front of an intended audience with a message that stands out, but it brings much needed revenue to schools across the country.
SwappleBlog will continue to build its content and will welcome guest blogs relating to practical resources for parents.
Many parents today have to be frugal, especially with several children,” says MySchoolSwap co-founder Cathy Shalvey. SwappleBlog will focus on creative ways to reuse, reinvent and replenishin both the household and the school.
