About
Storytelling is in Tor’s genes.

Tor Kjolberg |The PR and Marketing Guy | Founder & Chief Strategist
Journalist, PR and marketing consultant Tor Kjolberg has several degrees in marketing management. He started out as a marketing manager in Scandinavian companies and his last engagement before going solo was as director in one of Norway’s largest corporations.

Tor realized early on that writing engaging stories was more efficient and far cheaper than paying for ads. He wrote hundreds of articles on products and services offered by the companies he worked for. Thus, he was attuned to the fact that storytelling was his passion.

He founded his own company Markedsklinikken and helped hundreds of clients to promote their offerings as editorial content in leading trade magazines. In 2004, one of Norway’s largest publishing houses published his book “Sell more”.

10 years ago, he founded Daily Scandinavian to promote Scandinavian destinations, attractions and businesses through storytelling. Today, Daily Scandinavian contains more than 2.200 articles and has become a kind of Scandinavian encyclopedia.

Storytelling
Soon, companies, not only in the tourism business, contacted Tor to ask him to write their stories in an engaging way.

If you would like Tor to help your company, please contact him on mail editor@dailyscandinavian.com.

Storytelling is in his DNA, and he excels at getting the essence of experiences, that be in tourism or in other areas. Now, Daily Scandinavian offers clients editorials in Daily Scandinavian as well in its new free magazine SCANDINAVIAN Monthly.

Affiliate marketing

History
Affiliate marketing began in 1989 with a man named William J. Tobin, who holds the proud title of being the world’s first internet marketer. He founded PC Flowers & Gifts and launched his program on the Prodigy Network. The model involved paying the company for every sale.

With affiliate networks springing up all over the place, refer-it.com was launched by Wayne Marciano in 1997. He was followed a year later by associateprograms.com, affiliateguide.com, ravenews.com and more, all sharing information and articles alongside affiliate directories.

Daily Scandinavian is now in the process of  using the force of its 2.200+ articles and writing new articles for companies searching to extend their sales channels by content written in a professional way, with optimal chosen niches, using innovative ways to reach new audiences, creating quality content that provides value, uses clear calls to action and build connection with your community.

In addition, our aim is to share with you the exciting world of Scandinavian art, design, history, culture, food & drink and business as well as the many world known and lesser known destinations and attractions in the region. Explore Scandinavia – and find facts and destinations that will surprise you.

Scandinavia
Summer, when the sun hardly sets over Scandinavia, is the best time to visit this northern land. After months of darkness, Scandinavians come out of hibernation to celebrate the golden months of June, July and August with parties that would go on until dawn – except dawn never comes.

Scandinavia, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, has both cosmopolitan cities and the most enormous wilderness area in Europe. Lapland, which crosses Norway, Sweden and Finland, is a stunning region with glittering glaciers and bright blue skies. Lapps herd their reindeer across the tundra as they have for centuries. The region’s parks offer well-marked trails and huts, where hikers can sleep in comfort.

Denmark
Denmark is a small nation with a population of approximately 5.8 million. It has a wild past. There are always lots of happenings in this charming country, which you can learn more about in Daily Scandinavian.

The southernmost of the Scandinavian countries has a romantic landscape crisscrossed by waterways and dotted with thatched-roof houses. It is easy to imagine the fantasy figures, werewolves and sorcerers of Danish legend; Hans Christian Andersen was inspired by these legends to write his famous fairy tales.

Denmark is the only country attached to continental Europe. North of Germany and south of Sweden and Norway, Denmark is made up of the Jutland Peninsula, which shares a border with Germany and two major islands, Zealand and Funen. Altogether, the Danish islands number 480. Most are uninhabited.

Norway
Henrik Ibsen and Edvard Munch’s creative outpourings make one wonder about the dark side of the land of Vikings and fish. But don’t be frightened! Discover Norway’s many charms with a trip to Daily Scandinavian – or even better, to the country itself.
Norway, with the second-lowest population density in Europe, is the most rugged Scandinavian country. It has deep-gouged, sharp mountains rising from the jagged coastlines and frigid glaciers glittering beneath the midnight sun. Grass-thatched houses occupy little patches of land on nsteep hillsides. This is a country that challenges the sportsman, with superb skiing, hiking, sailing, orienteering, hunting and mountain climbing.

Sweden
Does the idea of herring – creamed, smoked, or pickled – make you go weak in the knees? Are the names Norrköping and Valdemarsvik music to your ears? Want to spend a vacation running with the reindeer? If so, Sweden is the place for you. However, Daily Scandinavian shows that it’s also a great place for people seeking stunning scenery, clean cities, cultural festivals and, incidentally, blondes.
Progressive, wealthy Sweden, the fourth largest nation in Europe, is sparsely inhabited. The California-sized country is made up of wheat plains, pine forests, thatched and timbered villages, cosmopolitan cities, historic islands, mountains, waterfalls, 95,000 lakes, and miles of rugged coastline. Best of all, its capital Stockholm, is the least-traveled and least-crowded of all European capitals.
