    Hi all,

    I notice a lot of the top offers on networks (based on EPC and payouts offered) are foreign traffic offers. French, German etc.

    Do any of you run these offers (assuming you don't know how to speak the language which I imagine is most of you US, UK people)?

    I feel like there could be opportunity here as there is less people doing it and opens up the amount of offers you can run.

    Anyone had any success?

    i tried to create an italian site once, but in the end was not worth the time because they don't buy as much online like in the us. The other problem is you can't be sure if foreign links will work forever and localized links are very expensive. Its way harder to find content writers and other services and they will be 5times more expensive. You can find a lot cheap english writers, but finding someone fluent in german who writes for 3$ is impossible.

    Certainly yes, but I suspect the most successful marketers won't give away what language/niche/market they're in ;)

    As far as CPA goes, it's pretty common and simple for marketers to run offers in languages they don't actually speak.

    When I was doing CPA I used onehourtranslation.com to translate my landers, etc. I used them because I wanted the best, but there are cheaper options if you plan to do a lot of split testing in the foreign language; however, I'd recommend not branching out until you have at least a little success with offers in your native language(s). It's much easier to clone a successful campaign in a different language than it is to build one from scratch.

    i'm not an English speaking people so mostly i'm running foreign(US/CA) offers. anyways i won't touch French offers because i can't speak or at least read french, i don't think i can't make money from them but that's too much trouble for me. and i can make more money from US offers spending same time imo.

    It's not that hard to get into these markets. Most of these guys just use a translation service to translate their US landing pages to the country they're targeting.

    Then they just continue to split test multiple offers/placements/landing pages to find out the winning combination before returning a profit.

    Many people have translators write content for them to tap into foreign marketplaces because of this sole factor.

    It's much better to target to demographics within your natural markets because it avoid the hassle of misrepresentation.
