This campaign is partnering with celebrity triathlete Drew Arellano and triathlon coach, Miguel Lopez to search and select bikes at AyosDito suited for newbie triathletes who would want to gear up and buy a decent, race-ready bike for their first race competition.
I was fortunate enough to be invited at the “SportsKoAyosDito” launch at the Museum Cafe last Monday and we were introduced to this concept wherein both Drew Arellano and Miguel Lopez presented to us their trainees, Jeffrey Calayag and Maridol Yabut, respectively who were able to purchase their competition bikes at AyosDito.

AyosDito launches “SportsKoAyosDito” campaign to promote sports and hassle-free, safe consumer-to-consumer e-commerce
MANILA, Philippines, November 10, 2014—AyosDito has launched a campaign called “#SportsKoAyosDito” to help beginners pursue and level-up their passion for sports, and at the same time, promote hassle-free, safe online selling and buying.
Partnering with celebrity triathlete Drew Arellano and triathlon coach Miguel Lopez, AyosDito helped selected triathlon beginners—Jeff Calayag and Maridol Yabut—to gear up and train for their first triathlon competition. With “#SportsKoAyosDito”, the biking community was able to sell their pre-loved road bikes for the triathlon beginners.
Drew and Miguel were largely involved in the campaign. They both searched for the bikes on AyosDito, and met the sellers to transact with them – just like what happens with sellers and buyers in real life – to demonstrate that online selling and buying, especially with AyosDito, is hassle-free and safe.
Brand influencer and triathlete Drew Arellano shared, “I realized that with platforms like AyosDito, various items especially for sports, are available so it is now easier and more cost-efficient to start a passion like triathlon. Meeting sellers is an exciting experience as it puts the human element in online selling and buying. My own user experience in meeting the sellers and buying the bike was safe and fun as AyosDito has a dedicated reviewer who ensures ads and sellers quality.”
Triathlon coach and athlete Miguel Lopez said, “Sports enthusiasts will be surprised that they can rely on platforms like AyosDito because they can find what they need for a particular sport. For instance, I found a fit bike for my trainee Maridol Yabut who needs a 48 – 50 cm road bike and this bike, despite being a pre-loved one, is competition-ready. Knowing the strict ads approval of AyosDito, my expectation was met when I saw that the bike was original and the seller was reliable.”
Believing in the potential of customer-to-customer e-commerce sites to promote and grow passions like sports, AyosDito Philippines Marketing Manager Rebecca Ricalde said, “At AyosDito, we are committed to helping Filipinos pursue their passions like sports by creating a hassle-free, safe, and trustworthy environment where experts and beginners can connect and transact with peace of mind.
With AyosDito, we believe we can grow and sustain communities like sports. For this campaign, we are highlighting triathlon but the message applies for all sports and hobbies such as surfing, mountaineering, boxing and many more.”
