Joe here. With this post, I want to let you know that I am making slight changes to the financing model of Startuprad.io.
We generate so much traffic and content that the costs associated with it are starting to really cut in my personal budget. Keep in mind dear reader, last year alone more than 400.000 other unique visitors have been looking at our website more than 3.500.000 times. Not to mention the equipment and services (advertisements, transcriptions, editing …). So, I decided to try an additional route to financing with Affiliate Links. This is an experiment and we will see how this goes.
For now, you will find in future posts a clearly marked chart with our recommendations on what you may need as a startup. Obviously, we get paid a small commission if you buy via one of those links.
If we integrate other affiliate links, we will mark them with an “AL”, so you know it is an affiliate link.
You will also notice that we will experiment and try out several different partners, products or services. If you miss something useful or know a good affiliate program (maybe your own?), we are open to talk to new partners. Reach out here: https://www.startuprad.io/contact/
Why are we doing this? It is simple, the affiliate links will help us to stay independent. The mix of several affiliate programs across countries is increasing our independence from sponsors.
Please note, we are loving our sponsors and they have not tried to interfere with our work in any way, but the process of getting to sponsorship is usually lengthy and tiresome. This takes attention and energy away from bringing you the podcast, on which we will focus for the foreseeable future.
Stay tuned for more.

PS: Almost forgot: This is the first chart with Affiliate Links 😊
