Imagine setting up a website as a hobby to help your friends and family find the best holiday deals. Then by the following spring your website has caught the attention of national media outlets and within the next 18 months it expands to 140 employees based in 12 countries around the globe. This is what happened with Daniel Krahn and Daniel Marx’s German holiday deals website Urlaubsguru.de. Here they share their story including their most peculiar experience and advice to aspiring entrepreneurs.

Tell us a bit about yourself – how long have you been using affiliate marketing and how did you get started?Urlaubsguru
In the summer of 2012 we brought the website Urlaubsguru.de to life in Unna, Germany after finding amazing holiday deals time and time again. To start with we put the deals online just to help friends and friends of friends. Then we heard about affiliate marketing and that travel companies were using the channel as an advertiser and decided to immediately link our deals via zanox. It was just two old school friends with a hobby.

When we started, we hoped that one day we’d be able to pay the cost for a banner advertisement. Now we have more than 140 employees and Holidayguru sites in 12 countries. In the past year we have facilitated a 100 million euros worth of holiday sales. (more…)

As part of our zanox Heroes campaign, we’re asking our publishers to share how they’ve used affiliate marketing to become online entrepreneurs, in order to inspire smaller publishers and highlight the positive impact our industry can have on people’s lives.

Our next story comes from the Netherlands, where after dabbling with affiliate marketing related projects for a few years, Rick Curé, Maarten de Smit and Mark Zijdemans realised that the tool they had built to help their editors would be of use to other publishers. They share how they got Shoppable.nl off the ground and became the white label e-commerce shop solution of choice for some of the biggest media companies in the Netherlands.
