ADVERTISING POLICY

Overview

Bike Hacks is where biking enthusiasts of all kinds come to receive valuable information regarding useful products and services. As one of the fastest-growing authorities on biking products, deals, and updates, BH’s demographic is made up of readers who are always on the prowl for new bicycles, accessories, gear, and services.

With more than 500,000 monthly active users, Bike Hacks helps you target the right message to the right audience.

Bike Hacks is comprised of an audience that is always on the lookout for the next nifty bike gadget or service. Our readers are interested in anything that saves them time or money as well as any technology that has the potential to wow their friends and family. They’re always in the market for exclusive deals and information on the newest trend or piece of technology.

The BH audience is filled with biking enthusiasts, first-movers, and early-adopters of the latest cycling trends and gear.

A customer from the Bike Hacks community is one that will pounce on enticing deals, and they tend to purchase any product or service that’s new and exciting or offers a tangible improvement over what they already have. Bike Hacks community members enjoy telling other in their network about new products or services.

That will allow you to leverage high word-of-mouth rates among our audience and their wider community. The average demographic of Bike Hacks readers is adults aged 25-49. There’s a fairly even split between male and female readers in our community.

The typical BH community member wants to be seen as someone who’s on the front lines of technology and has an insider’s knowledge. You can help them on their quest to become first movers and early adopters by offering the products and services they crave.
