The Lakeside Life Blog
Lewis Smith Lake Alabama | Smith Lake Alabama
The Lakeside Life magazine is very lucky to be have been selected and recognized by Amazon in 2019 as not only an #amazonassociate (aka #amazonaffiliate) but also an #amazoninfluencer.
Along with the new status, our team had to decide whether to roll out our Amazon picks on our store pages or our magazine page, and how best to do it. We are first and foremost a lake living community magazine, dedicated to our lake community in every way, so our goal is to select products from reputable brands that we are already affiliated with by vendors through our store, OR that are sold by our local retailers who are also a part of the Amazon team and seek to extend their products to a wider audience, OR brands that we know and trust from our own lake experience or that of friends and neighbors we have "laked" with for decades.
We boldly decided to roll out our status on all platforms so that we can show a more diverse amount of products and vendors that we support and believe in. We set up our wide-reaching Amazon store using the Instagram account @amazonlakelife as the basis for that with a logo that fits our brand using "lake life" as the theme––a shortened version of our magazine name––and we matched the logo to our local store @lakesidegear using the same logo with "lake gear" as the theme. From these pages, @thelakesidelife_smithlake and @lakesidegear, plus our professional marine audio company @masterpoaudio, we can offer recommendations in any way we see fit through those markets. Again, our overall goal––show you more of what our brands, retailers and affiliates in the lake arena are offering. It's fun having several ways to find the products we all need and want.
Check our BLOG again soon, we'll have some select items to show you in the future.
AND...this isn't all, we still have some exciting changes going on in the background as we grow and change, and we'll keep you posted...stay tuned!
This blog was first published 11/1/2019 and we have updated since we took a pause during the pandemic that followed that post to focus on only supporting local business or businesses like ours that have an Amazon store to complement their brick and mortar or home based business. However, we'll be ramping up some favorite Amazon picks to post on our social media and blog later in the year, so follow us to watch for those.
NOTE: You can still purchase directly through our store, our e-comm, and our local or national affiliates, PLUS you now have an additional way of convenient shopping, from the comfort of your home, for products that help you enjoy the lakeside life. Please... never hesitate to reach out to us for recommendations and direction on anything you are interested in. We're out there shopping all the time, and chances are, in our decades of lake life, and 25+ years on Lewis Smith Lake in Alabama, we've seen or heard of the product you want, and we'd love to help direct you to the best pricing and highest quality items available. Choose @amazonlakelife!
Lake Living at it's best!
