Founding partner Imbull
Imbull is the company behind the two biggest Dutch coupon code portals Actiecode.nl, Kortingscode.nl. Besides these websites, we have our International 'adventure' with Flipit.com. Flipit has been launched in several countries and is expected to expand rapidly. The goal for Flipit.com is to create the ultimate, one-stop savings portal that offers a variety of money-saving options, coupon codes and exclusive offers.
Imbull was found
At November 26th, we decided to go to the Dutch Chamber of Commerce to start our VOF. Traffic Trader was the first name, since we did not know how to name our company by that time. We just chose something: we were traffic buyers and had the domain trader.nl. We started working full time on Januari 4th in 2009. The first business days were creating facebook ads, run some adwords campaigns, add a couple of vouchers to our couponblog, and play civilisation and bloons while waiting for facebook to approve our ads. This is what we did for a couple of months. The only thing that changed was the time we had to invest in our couponblog kortingscode.net. We were forced to spent less time on gaming, which was good after all.
