Thank you for your interest in promoting Beyond Off Grid film and Return to the Old Paths training resources. We’re looking for affiliate partners who share our desire to inspire and equip people to reduce their dependence on the modern economy and Return to the Old Paths of productive households and local community interdependence.

We are devoted to inspiring and equipping you and your audience to Return to the Old Paths of sustainable, self-reliant living.  We do this through our documentary film that informs why people need to reduce their dependence on modern systems and provides insights into alternatives, and by providing online courses taught by experts and experienced homesteaders to teach the skills needed to survive and thrive with a more self-reliant lifestyle.

You can make commissions on the sales of both the film and our courses, as well as product bundles that we have available, some of which are offered to customers as an upsell when they are checking out, because we want to maximize both the reach of the film through selling additional copies for customers to give to friends, as well as deliver more commissions for you as an affiliate. 


Promotions Schedule



Free Film Screening – June 25-July 1, 2021


We plan to host a special Free screening of the Beyond Off Grid film this summer, which will give your audience a chance to watch the entire film for free, and those who enjoy it are likely to buy an online access pass. You will receive commissions on any film products sold, and since we will have various upsells offered, including our courses that are over $100, the commissions potential is significant.


Training Courses


We’ve conducted nearly 50 online training sessions over the past few years, and they have been packaged into courses like our Beyond Off Grid Summit Online Course.  Training includes topics such as:

  • How to Grow More Food with Low Tech Tools and Techniques
  • How to Make your own Natural Household Cleaners
  • How to Implement Off Grid Water Systems
  • How to Grow Your Own Sustainable Food Forest….. plus over 25 others!

These sessions are taught by instructors that are experts in their fields. Some of our instructors include:

  • Laurie Neverman from Common Sense Homesteading – one of the most popular homesteading blogs
  • Noah Sanders – author of Born Again Dirt, and small scale farming instructor
  • Cat Ellis from the Herbal Prepper – an herbalist and author of 2 books
  • Paul Munsen – president of Sun Oven International
  • Wardee Harmon – author and teacher at Traditional Cooking School

Our Beyond Off Grid Summit training series is very unique in that it was a true Summit – in addition to our online training, we gathered experts at a permaculture farm in the mountains of Virginia with event attendees to create a one of a kind learning experience. We have produced the 25 sessions in our Summit Event Video Course from the video recorded at the event with multiple cameras by professional videographers (with some GoPro and drone aerial footage mixed in) and each has been produced as a high-quality video training session that will provide huge value to customers. Each of these are essentially equivalent to a DVD production on each session, they they are delivered in an online course/member site format. This is a very unique course with HD video from the event that is of unmatched quality.

In execution, our affiliate program is fairly simple: you promote our training product using your unique links and/or banner ads on your site, social media, and via email, and you earn commission on each sale that results from the traffic you send.

The Beyond Off Grid Summit online course includes all of our Summit online training sessions, and has a list price of $197. The Summit Event Video course produced from our 3-day Summit Hands-on Event recordings has a list price of $297, so the overall commissions potential is high. We have bonus packages to increase the course value. Please see details on the commission structure and terms below, then sign up to join us!

Affiliate Commissions


The commission rate on our film products are:

  • Online film access pass – 50% with $10 list price
  • Film DVD – 20% with $25 list price
  • DVD + Online access pass – 25%

The commission rate for the front end training offer of the Summit Online Course that includes lifetime access to our online training sessions is 50%.

The production costs for the hands-on training event and video production for the Event Video Course were very high (over $40,000), so unfortunately, we can’t offer 50% commission on this product, but only 20%. The conversion rate for the Event Video Course upsell has been very high.
