Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I'm a stay-at-home mother to two boys – my eldest has just turned 5 and my youngest is 2. Before my boys, I was working in the healthcare industry. It was the arrival of my first child that helped me discover my passion in early childhood development. Ever since my son was born, I have been on an amazing voyage of discovery about the wonders of early learning and every day, I'm learning something new.

What's your experience like using BrillKids products?

Prior to using BrillKids Little Reader and Little Math, I had been using the Doman Math and Reading programs. I eventually opted to get Little Math and Little Reader because the preset curriculum saved me so much time in preparation and it was so much easier to conduct lessons concurrently for two boys at different stages. Additionally, I started the reading program for my younger son when he was 4 months old so once we were past the basic words for objects in his world, he was no longer interested in the words of things he didn't know. Little Reader with the associated images and video clips gave those written words more meaning and rekindled his interest in his lessons.

Since my older son started reading fluently, I started using Little Reader to expand his knowledge with my own customised Little Reader flash cards on a variety of subjects, like country flags, dinosaurs, and elements of the periodic table. I also used Little Reader's phonics program to supplement his reading knowledge since he learned to read mainly using the whole word technique.

The early exposure to reading and Math has helped to inculcate the love for these subjects. We focussed more on literacy with my older son and he has developed a healthy interest for reading and books. My younger son, who received more lessons in Math is clearly more comfortable with numbers and enjoys Math much more than his older brother.

"I'm not a good salesperson, but I have strong convictions for what I believe in. What I believe in is that early learning makes a difference and BrillKids products simplify the teaching process for all parents.

I am delighted to be able to share BrillKids' products with others because they have worked so well for us."

What's your experience like as a BrillKids Affiliate?

I don't remember when I discovered the BrillKids Affiliate Program but being an affiliate has been great. Being a stay-at-home mum, I gave up my source of income a long time back and being able to earn this side income allows me to fund further educational materials for my sons.

I have an education resource website and a blog where I write about my sons' progress and what I've learned about early childhood development. BrillKids products fit in very well with the subject of my site. I have BrillKids banners on my website but what I believe works best is writing specifically about BrillKids products and early learning. From time to time, I will write about the programs we use and our progress and I will recommend the products we have been using. For instance, when I talk about my sons' reading progress, I will also include details about Little Reader which we use to supplement our home reading program.

I have also done reviews for Little Reader and Little Reader Chinese where I have offered giveaways to increase interest and awareness about early learning and resources that are available. Taking advantage of holiday promotions is also another great opportunity to write about BrillKids products and remind my blog readers about early learning. I generally find an increase in sales during these periods.

What are your strategies for success?

The key to success as a BrillKids Affiliate is having experience with the products and the personal confidence that they work. I'm not a good salesperson, but I have strong convictions for what I believe in. What I believe inis that early learning makes a difference and BrillKids products simplify the teaching process for all parents (which is terrific when you're pressed for time). It couldn't be easier to teach your child the basics of reading and Math.

I am delighted to be able to share BrillKids' products with others because they have worked so well for us. My only regret was that BrillKids didn't come up with them earlier so I could have taken full advantage of them for my elder son. I think early learning is so important and it's great to be able to recommend such excellent products to others.
