"You said that H2OChills was going to be be interviewed for some radio show, broadcasting throughout the Lake of the Ozarks.  Is it ever going to happen?"  Oh, it's happened!

This past Saturday, 5/12, we were guests on Bob's "No Wake Zone" Radio Show, broadcast on KDKD AM/FM - KXEA FM.  The focus of the show is Lake of the Ozarks, one of the Midwest's premier boating destinations located in central Missouri. In addition, the show covers events, boat shows, races, products, as well as legislative issues related to boating.  Bob May, a life long boating enthusiast, hosts the show which by radio reaches all across the Lake of the Ozarks region and has a nationwide reach with their online broadcasting. Bob recently contacted us and asked us to talk about our new products on his show, which of course, we were happy to oblige!

If you're interested in listening, first hand, to just how incredible that interview was, you can listen to the interview here!

Ahhhh... May 1st... May Day!

Exactly six months from November 1st, which historically has meant wild celebrations in the ancient Celtic and Germanic cultures.  In recent US history, it commemorates labor parties achieving an 8-hour work day schedule. 

In the H2OChills culture, it means we are fast approaching water time, worth a celebration in and of itself.  We certainly wouldn't begrudge an 8-hour work day, so long as it results in more time on the water!  

The days are getting longer and warmer, and as H2OChills is a lover of Spring and the Summer that follows, we'd like to offer assistance to each and every one of our customers, fans, and followers so that you can share in our excitement.  

If you've not yet purchased an H2OChills Water Bosom or Water Bosom Deluxe for yourself, or someone you love, now's a prime opportunity.

Visit our new website (http://h2ochills.com/products.html), throw a product or two into our new shopping cart, and enter discount code: 05011222 for a 10% discount on any of our fine products!

See you on the water!
 
 
H2OChills, where have you been?  Making ourselves better than we were back then!  If you've not visited our site in the past week, then you've not seen the latest face of H2OChills.

As a start-up organization, we take seriously, all of our customer feedback.  Over our first months, we heard from customers that our initial site had a checkout process that was cumbersome.  It wasn't intuitive.  It wasn't flexible.  It didn't allow our customers to enter shipping addresses, that differed from the billing address.  It was difficult to track orders.  It lacked a true shopping cart.  It didn't accept payments outside of PayPal.

To address these issues, and more, we rebuilt our site using Magento Go, an e-commerce platform trusted by more than 110,000 merchants -- if you run an e-commerce store, here's a list of 10 reasons why you also might want to consider Magento Go.

In addition to being a truly streamlined e-commerce site, addressing all previous limitations, H2OChills.com has now launched it's partnership with ShareASale, and has released an official Affiliate Marketing Program.  If you currently host and manage your own website, e-commerce site, newsletter, or blog, and you're interested in generating additional revenue, please consider partnering with H2OChills.  If you have a friend, family member, or colleague that you think might be interested, please share with them the link to our Affiliate Marketing Programhttp://www.shareasale.com/shareasale.cfm?merchantID=39090

Thank you for your continued interest in, and support of, H2Chills -- we're looking forward to seeing you out on the water!
 
 
Since launching H2OChills on November 1st of last year, we've had visitors to our website from every state in the US, with the exception of New Mexico (NM, where are you??!?), delivering product to more than 25% of our 50 great states.  In addition, we've seen visitors from 57 other countries (for a complete list, see below)!

Throughout our first five months we've listened and learned a lot from our customers.  As a direct result of feedback received about the H2OChills checkout process, we've initiated a website and shopping cart redesign, which will be launching in the month of April -- prepare to have your minds blown!

More important, and as it relates to you, if you've purchased and experienced our product, or perhaps if you've simply thought to yourself, "Self, I believe that I could sell that product, if given the opportunity," then here's your chance to put money where your ... money goes! 

In conjunction with the website relaunch, we've established and are rolling out an Affiliate Marketing program, hosted by ShareASale.com.  To leverage the relationships and contacts that we've made around the country, and around the world, we're providing commissions to anyone that helps us to advertise on their websites, blogs, newsletters, and more, providing others the opportunity to sell a patent pending product, that can only be found here at H2OChills.com.  

If you think that you have what it takes to sell Bosoms, and you're interested in learning more, please email us at salesandsupport@h2ochills.com, or visit www.ShareASale.com to learn how to become a paid Advertiser.

To minimize your efforts and maximize your water fun, we've endeavored to compile a list of all the great water events taking place from spring to fall, around our state and around our nation.  Surprisingly, finding an events list has been no small task, and so ...

To get things moving, we've started the list, but we need to hear from you!  As you share your knowledge of great water events, we'll add them to the Events (www.h2ochills.com/events.html) page of our website, and, periodically, remind our followers of those events that are not to be missed.  When sharing an event, please include: event name, date(s), time(s) location(s), and any available link to the event website.  Bookmark and share the Events page, and be sure to check back often, whenever you intend to plan, share, or enjoy time on the water!

Send all event leads and suggestions to: salesandsupport@h2ochills.com, or leave comments below.

Happy Spring!

This past weekend, H2OChills participated in the annual Polar Plunge for Special Olympics, alongside of the Lowlands Group and the awesome tunes of Milwaukee's own Element 13.  What a great weekend, and what a great cause -- it was an honor to have participated and to have supported the Special Olympics of Wisconsin and we look forward to being involved for years to come!

While there, we enjoyed spending time with Milwaukee's own Wisconsin Warriors, 2009 North American IWFL Champs, as well as the Milwaukee Admirals mascot, Roscoe, who was also a big fan of the Water Bosom!

Though the plungers had no intent on relaxing on a float in the ice-cold waters that day, we had owners of pools, lakes, boats, we had spring breakers and river floaters, we even had the occasional land-lubber happy to stop by and check out our products -- of course, it didn't hurt that we had a slide show of our products in action in the Bahamas, Mexico, and Las Vegas!  The reactions were encouraging, as the participants were shivering from their plunge into the frigid waters, we certainly helped to remind them of the warm days ahead.

Finally, we had an overwhelming number of participants for our raffle, and, just in time for spring, we congratulate Steven J. from South Milwaukee in winning his very own Water Bosom ... remember, Steven, Bosoms are for sharing! 

Twelve more days until Spring 2012 -- if you've not done so already, please take advantage of our ProDeal, which ends on March 31st.

This Saturday, 3/3, from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm, H2OChills will be manning a table at Milwaukee’s annual Polar Bear Plunge, in support of Special Olympics of Wisconsin.

If you’ve ever wondered, on a swelteringly hot summer day, what it would feel like to submerge yourself within the contents of an ice-cold, thirst-quenching, condensation-inducing beverage, well here’s your chance (sort of). 

Not withstanding the fact that it will only be a polar bear’s hair above freezing, and the water’s of Lake Michigan’s McKinley Marina are not quite palatable, this plunge will certainly be invigorating and refreshing.  And, unlike a summer-time dip, at Milwaukee’s Polar Bear Plunge, you’ll be “Freezin’ for a Reason.”  Collectively, the various Polar Bear Plunges, scattered throughout our fine state, are one of the single largest annual fundraising efforts for the Special Olympics of Wisconsin.

If you’ve not yet signed up for this event, it’s still not too late – the plunging will begin at noon, but you can register online, or the day of the event, onsite, beginning at 10:00.  If you’re already signed up, or only interested in serving witness to the self-flogging, we look forward to seeing you there!  Oh, and did we mention there will be souvenirs, costume contests, raffles, and merriment? 

Sponsored by The Lowlands Group, their Café Hollander will be serving food and beverages inside a giant heated tent, a portion of their proceeds also going to the Special Olympics of Wisconsin.  And will there be music, you ask?  Yes.  For the fourth year running, Plungers and non-plungers alike will be serenaded by the sweet sounds of Element 13

And where does H2OChills fit into all of this?

Alongside of Café Hollander and Element 13, that’s where we’ll be, raffling off water floats, giving away spectacular koozies, adding rabid fans to our mailing list, and getting you to ‘think spring!’

Join us tomorrow for a fun-filled afternoon of activities, partake in the Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics of Wisconsin, and stop by to find out why H2OChills’ products are destined to become the ‘World’s Finest Water Floats!’

See you there!

 
 
The days of tripping over your water noodles or being uncertain of where to store the oversized floating devices are over … here’s how:

An exciting time for boat manufacturers, distributors, and boat owners, new and veteran alike, boating season is just around the corner, and the boat shows have begun!  Most recent: MiamiBoatShow, Palm Beach International Boat Show, MIlwaukee Boat Show.

H2OChills has taken full advantage of the lead-in to the boating season, by publicly testing and demonstrating the compact nature of our floating devices. At the Milwaukee Boat Show, we tested the packability of our Water Bosoms and Water Bosoms Deluxe in various nooks and crannies of some of the most popular boats in the market: SunChaser Boats, Cobalt Boats, MasterCraft Boat Company, Sea Ray Boats & Yachts, and more.

No longer does limiting the number of floating devices on the boat need to be something a boat owner should consider, having the opportunity to stock up on compact and packable H2OChills water products.

The days of tripping over your water noodles, or being uncertain of where to store the oversized floating devices are over.  Floating while boating just got easier, thanks to H2OChills -- clutter cutters for boating lovers!

Even sailors love sales!  If you’ve not yet made your purchase, then now is the time.  To enjoy 15% off your next purchase, please use the code: nowakezone upon visiting: http://tiny.cc/slz2h

I gambled and lost in Las Vegas, but then again ... I won!

Last weekend, Jim the Dealer worked me over at his blackjack table at the Wynn.  No luck to be found at the slot machines at the Paris.  No money to be made at the Bellagio roulette tables.  I met a nice couple from Canada, while lightening my wallet for dealers Thom and Nancy at one of their tables at Binions.  Those dealers couldn't have been nicer.  Thanks for the tips, ladies ... I hope you appreciated yours! 

That's all I have for the low lights, and the low lights were worth every penny.

The "mid lights," I'll be quick.  The roller coaster at New York New York: thrilling.  The Cirque du Soleil show, Zumanity: entertaining.  The weather: a lot warmer than here.  The food: delicious, if not overpriced.  The drinks, well ... the drinks were plentiful.

And, the highlight?  An afternoon at The Palms Place Pool & Spa.  Good call, amigos!  Not only was the facility breathtaking, the Bosoms were out, and the Bosoms were rockin!  Attention-grabbing, once again?  Yep.  Not only did we wind up with happy test riders from Texas, California, and Kentucky (see inset picture ... people from Lexington, is this a familiar face to you?), we also wound up with some preliminary interest from The Palms.  Now, there's a winning roll of the dice!

Thanks again for your continued interest in H2OChills, and remember that water time is just around the corner ... no better time than the present to get your Bosoms!  Reluctant?  Well, here's this week's call to action:

For direct access to our promotional pricing, between now and 2/29, visit: www.h2ochills.com/prodeal.html, using the passcode: nowakezone ... pass it on!
