Last year we blew things out of the water, exceeding all of our expectations, with the highly successful Back To School STEAM Bundle. We paid out thousands to our affiliates and contributors and almost immediately we had requests for us to do it again. So here it is folks! In August we will once again be offering the ultimate Back To School STEAM Bundle! Save the date for August 7th-12th!
There are some changes, so read on to find out how we are going to make this STEAM Bundle even better.
TL;DR: Last year was HUGE!! This year will be even bigger. August 7th-12th. You want in. Apply HERE.
How does the Back To School STEAM Bundle work?
We are gathering up the best STEAM products from talented teachers, homeschoolers, writers, engineers, and scientists, and putting them together into one massive and amazing bundle. Then for 6 days only we will be selling the bundle at a significantly discounted price (90-95% off SRP). This provides HUGE value to our readers and customers, and HUGE buzz which drives HUGE $ for you. We will be using the power of our STEAM Kids network plus contributors and affiliates to help promote the bundle and get extensive reach. Our goal is to get your product into as many hands as possible!
This year, we are offering a special new structure to the bundle at the request of our consumers. We will have three products:
- The Little STEAM Learners Bundle, geared towards 3 to 7 years old.
- The Big STEAM Learners Bundle geared towards 8 to 12 years old.
- And… The Ultimate STEAM Learners Bundle which will include both the Little Learners and Big Learners!
Your readers will have the opportunity to choose the perfect bundle for their needs.
