Over 100 Participating Brands, Including Sitka, Orvis, Kenetrek, Filson, Leupold and Shimano
Victor, IDAHO– Adventure travel companies, outfitters, professional guides, lodges, instructors, outdoor schools and conservation organizations now have a way to earn revenue through their trusted gear and brand recommendations. ProGuideDirect.com is proud to announce the first e-commerce platform that allows outdoor professionals to create their own purchase ready gear lists that can be sent to their clients and constituents.
Each time a customer purchases from a guide’s gear list a 10-15 percent commission is earned by the guide on the sale. The program is a win-win for everyone. Brands gain increased exposure to experts supporting their brands and increased sales. Outfitters can expand their retail offerings, while no longer losing out on pre- and post-trip sales. Guides gain a new way to leverage their gear recommendations and augment their income. And finally, the consumer benefits from the trusted recommendations of his guide. ProGuideDirect is not a discount site. All gear is sold at full retail, so as to not undercut retail shops.
“As a former retail shop owner and fly fishing outfitter, I understand that guides, stand behind the gear they use everyday,” stated Pro Guide Direct Founder and CEO, Fletcher White. “Pro Guide Direct is a way for brands to strengthen that connection with the fishing and hunting guides that are the ambassadors of their products.”
