For two decades I have been making my living with affiliate programs, primarily for outdoor lifestyle retailers and direct-to-consumer brands.
My first website, GravityFed, was built while working and living at the Goldminer’s Daughter ski lodge in Alta, Utah. We were publishing ski bum stories and product reviews first, and then discovered affiliate marketing later.
Other websites like The Daily Pow were launched, and I soon found myself managing affiliate marketing for Backcountry.com. That was just the beginning.
