A first mover in Turkey’s nascent market for affiliate networks, GelirOrtaklari is a web platform where online merchants can partner with highly trafficked websites (affiliates). Merchants place ads on affiliate sites, which drive web traffic back to the online merchant. The affiliate then receives a cut of the resulting sales.

Part engineer, part entrepreneur, and part music producer, Yunus Guvenen has always loved the process of creating. He was born and raised in Paris, and later became a leading producer for progressive house music in Turkey. He then enrolled in Tufts University and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Electrical Engineering.

Yunus had a vision to create Turkey’s first affiliate network. In 2008, he launched Digitouch as a digital marketing agency. Meanwhile, he began building GelirOrtaklari Affiliate Network, to which he now devotes the majority of his time. This company is Turkey’s first affiliate marketing network. It is comprised of merchants who want to place ads with affiliates, and affiliates who want to sell ad space.

GerlirOrtaklari is a first mover in a growing market and Yunus is an ambitious entrepreneur who has already won over key supporters with his open-minded attitude.
