May 20th, 2009, 12:21 PM #1New AvantLink Merchant: Makai Bikes
Beach cruisers are in the house! It is my pleasure to introduce Makai Bikes, exclusively on AvantLink.
Makai Bikes is an internet-based online bike store based out of Hermosa Beach, California. In Hawaiian, the word Makai literally means "toward the ocean", and this word is the primary inspiration for their selection of beach cruiser bikes and accessories. Be one of the first Affiliates to promote a very unique "Cycling" category product line from a retailer that knows Affiliate marketing.
Have a look at their site, and I think you'll agree that this is a good opportunity for Affiliates with cycling or beach lifestyle traffic. Note that Makai Bikes pays commission on shipping charges. From their About page...The really cool thing about buying a bike from MakaiBikes.com is that we've cut out the middle-men, which is partly how we offer competitive prices. Our bikes are shipped direct, which saves you money. We think you should be able to buy a good quality bike at a good price with no hassles! Don't you?

It's the hot summer season for bikes...and a great time to make some money with Makai Bikes. FYI, a lot of customers like to buy bikes in pairs (his and hers etc..) which is great for sales, and great for affiliates too of course.

WOW, thanks to all you affiliates who are sending in sales! The summer sales season is here in full force! Some of you savvy affiliates are making really great use of the datafeed and making some nice commissions on a lot of the accessories we sell too (not just bikes!)

Congrats again to all those affiliates out there who are taking advantage of the hot summer bicycle sales season!
RIGHT NOW is the time for bikes: it's summer, lots of people are driving less due to the slow economy, gas prices are going up again...plus the style of bike we specialize in is super popular right now (beach cruisers)
There is no better time to be a cycling/bicycle affiliate

I just wanted to offer a quick thank-you to all the ABW'ers who have signed up for our program thus far. Some really big sales have been coming through over the last few days...thanks for all your efforts! I hope you are enjoying the commissions too.
Also: FYI, our conversion rate has recently improved thanks to some site changes and expanded product selection...

I want to offer a HUGE thank you to all the affiliates who worked hard and promoted our massive 3 day sale this weekend. The sale was a big success for us and I noticed a whole bunch of affiliate sales come through! Nice work! Stay tuned for future sales...they are a great time to send traffic! We had above-average conversion rates all weekend long. If you have not signed up for our program yet, sign up now so you will be all set to go for our next big sale! (probably in another month or two)

FYI to our affiliates: November can be a slow time of year for bicycle sales but the sales really heat-up after Thanksgiving through the Christmas season. Even when its cold, people want that new bike or bike accessory! If you are looking for Christmas/holiday products to promote, don't forget us at Makai Bikes
