We have been in business since 2015, bringing German-related products and services to our customers in Malaysia and other parts of the world. We cover a broad range of topics – from books to digital products – and everything we put onto our site has been written and edited by experts in their respective fields.
Our site is built around buying advice and helping you to understand what you can buy and the choices you have. There’s more choice than ever when it comes to parting with your money. Whether you’re looking to buy something for your home or work, sifting through loads of information and learning about something from scratch takes a long time. Sure, it would be awesome if you could all fill your cart with the ten best products, take them home, try them out and return the nine you don’t want. Unfortunately, none of us have the time.
How we work?
We monitor trends, follow industry news, rub elbows with thought-leaders and keep an eye on new advancements in products, services, and technology to decide what we put on this site.
Our selections are based on a number of factors, including cost, availability, popularity, etc. On some occasions, we use our expertise and garner other expert advice and user reviews to craft lists of the best products that we can’t review right now.
How we make money?
We want to make sure you are happy with the product or service that we recommended because we want you to come back next time you need advice.
In most cases, we make money when you click a link and buy a product. After a cooling-off period we’ll be given a small percentage of what you paid in what is called an ‘affiliate fee’. As affiliate fees are mostly standard we won’t try to push you towards buying one product over another, or to any particular retailer. We want to make sure you get the right product or service for you.
Once our reviews are complete and published, our commercial staff may pursue various means of developing additional revenue. That may include traditional advertising, sponsorships, or lead generation. Sponsored content is clearly marked, and you can find out more about germanmentor content funding here.
To be clear, these methods of monetization in no way affect the review score that a product, service, or company receives. Ever. We do not accept commercial funding or individual payments to include a product or service for review, or to change any aspect of the review content or score. Ever.
We use these various revenue streams not only to support our staff, but also to purchase products for review, to outfit our offices with the best tools and equipment for testing and to continue to expand the number of products and services we review.
We are all about helping you find the product or service that works for you. We exist to make your complicated buying decisions easier. If you ever have any specific questions about the reviews on our site, please contact us on Facebook, or by email.
