Maryellen stumbled across affiliate marketing while she owned and operated a business with her husband. Taking the reigns of all marketing initiatives (both traditional and online), Maryellen started a hyper-local blog about things to do in her beautiful resort hometown of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Quickly outranking the Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau on select relevant terms, Maryellen landed a spot at an affiliate marketing agency where she managed programs such as philosophy.com, philosophy UK, Charlotte Russe, Plastic Jungle, DownEast Basics, David’s Cookies, Roots Canada, Roots USA and more. Always a goal to work inside at an advertiser, Maryellen left the agency for Restaurant.com where she led the channel for both networked and direct affiliate partners. Maryellen is now with Jane.com , recently named the 11th fastest growing, privately held company in the United States by Inc. Magazine – and Jane is further honored to be named the #1 retailer.
