    Talking Gaiam - Jan : Bedding through to Yoga DVD Sets
    Hi All

    This one has me buzzing, as you may be aware Gaiam bought Good Times some months back, and we've been waiting with baited breath to see if we could get to run the Gaiam Aff Program (also on LinkShare) .... and so we're very very happy to be able to say we'll be kicking off on Jan 1.

    So what do Gaiam sell... what don't they sell in the area health, home and lifestyle

    Sheets & Bedding through to Ashtanga Yoga DVD Sets through to Acupressure Gift Sets. All at great prices.

    We're looking forwards to getting this rocking in 2006... after we've done a bit of fumigating

    Cheers

    Chris

    Sounds like you're excited about the merchandise, Chris. Good. :-) There is a market for holistic merchandise, just not a very vocal or obvious one. I think they'll do well with good placement and information. Maybe ask them to write up some informative content pieces to help affs sell their wares.

    Good luck and happy fumigating!
    Peace,

    and I did . . . the solar stuff as given on the site shows a contract-with-homeowners deal. I didn't see individual parts being sold, darn it.

    because of the need for contracts, it might behoove someone to check their local BBB before getting too excited. just a thought . . .

    I didn't see the contract part?
    What kind of contract are they asking for? Is it a contract for actually putting the panel up and using it for a minimum time period?

    I read it too quickly to quote anything, but since individual parts weren't mentioned, it looked like a deal for site installation.

    Diligence makes one think of siding contract salesmen. Wonder what pressure they use.

    link to that section is here: http://www.realgoods.com/calsolar/ and you have to hunt to find it.

    Hi, Everett, thank you for posting that and Welcome to ABW!

    This is a very busy time of year for most of us just updating our existing sites and pages, but I'll have to take another look at the program now and see how I can make individual product links.

    well, if this is suggestion time, then this company blew it as far as renewable energy is concerned.

    ONE graphic, small.

    NO product links.

    and I refuse to make text-link-to-page links as they tend to die quickly.

    it seems we as affiliates like to make mini-sites to sell for a merchant, with dedicated per-product or per-subject pages using links to individual products. since there aren't any that I can see, I have to tell you this is going to be a very hard sell to affiliates.

    Hi Herb

    If you need more links created please let me know what focus you need, Gaiam has a lot of different Niche areas and we're creating a lot of these links and creatives on a custom /as requested basis, trying to ensure that everyone has a unique presentation

    Drop Pete an email and he'll get what ever you need developed.

    Cheers

    Hi, Chris

    A post above here from them lists all their renewable energy categories. For me to make a page (or a site) would require them being in your page maker* or something like it.

    When one builds a site they need all the links to be available.

    and making a text link to one of their pages is risky; doesn't always stick.

    ____________
    *which is apparently defunct. I wish these folks had gone to SAS.

    Hi Herb

    No worries we'll get them created. If you need some pages created let Pete know and he'll have the designer work on that for you.

    appreciate it.

    actually, would like links in LS in their classic product link style: a large graphic-only link and a text-only (description) link for each product. These are not "pages," but could use existing graphics if available.

    I don't think there is any need for special designs, although each category should have several sizes of graphic link ready.

    Perhaps you can just pass this on to Pete as-is; it is enough stuff for most affiliates to work with.

    Regards,
    Herb

    with a reminder to delete links that show in LS that no longer work.

    Thank you, Pete . . . meanwhile I've built text links via LS in the interim.
