    hi guys and greetings from germany. Iam relatively new on this board and have read quiete a few topics by now. The only money i have earned so far online is through freelancing work and some ppc cash (which i have not recived yet)


    I would love to transfer some of the absolutely brilliant strategies given here to the german market.

    I believe that some strategies that stop working in the US a while ago could still be profitable where i come from. am i right with that?

    One of the big challenges iam facing is that a lot of the strategies are based on certain sites or mechanisms, which are not available in germany. For example clickbank or AC.

    iam very greatful for helpful advises of any kind!

    p.s : i would also interessted in partner projects

    My basic understand of it is that Germany seems to me like an average-good market, a relatively prosperous country but that doesn't have much of a buying online frenzy the US can get.

    clickbank is available in germany. You can get accepted in pretty much every company if you are from germany.

    wow PauloPt thanks for your fast reply. I think you are right with that. There are a lot of people who buy stuff online, but the Buying mentality is different.

    Racke, it's pretty hard to simply transfer methods that are tailored towards the US to germany. You'll have to adjust them and find your own twists to make things work. There are just so many differences you have to think about. Just the fact that only few people use credit cards has a huge impact.. and you'll have a hard time to find decent CPA offers for example.

    PM me if you have any specific questions, maybe I can help you out.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he'd like to get into that market by selling products from CB to a german audience. In that case, he'd need mostly products in german. If this is so, you could either produce them yourself, hire someone to make them or just offer the author to translate the product to german and sell it to the german market for a higher commission. If you can't use CB or Paydotcom to sell products in german ( I don't know about this ), I'd just go for Paypal.

    As Nick suggests, you could also look for german marketing partners, make some of what you've learned here available to them, sign up for CB, Ebay, Amazon, CJ ( I believe they all accept german affiliates ) etc and drive traffic with methods internationally available, such as SEO, using video sites, torrents, etc.

    Hope I didn't misunderstand your post

    Thanks for the correction NickFlame. What i really wanted to say was that as much as i know there is no "german clickbank" where you can find lots of german ebooks to different topics.

    @Allnightlong thanks for your offer i really appreciate that. What you are saying is so true. I mean you can literally find an Us affiliate program for nearly any problem and niche.

    @IMATA no this was exactly what i meant. Thanks for your advises. Product creation could be profitable because there is much less competition. I really like your idea to offer the author to translate the product.

    You know where you are? This is Black Hat World:

    1. Grab a product from Clickbank

    2. Read it, apply it and really get into it. This will make it easier for step 3.

    3. Translate it to German.

    4. Put a different title.

    Think I wouldn't do it if I spoke native German? Aber... Ich verstehe nur ein Bisschen Deutsch.

    offtopic brainstorming:
    I live in Serbia, its probably the worst country for internet marketing in the world BUT.
    What if i make shitload of blogs with different niches and translate some good articles via google translate and post them around, or maybe find a automation of this.
    Could i be getting some good money in few years from now, or is this totally worthless time waisting ?

    I know i can not know something like this without testing it, but i am just interested if someone did similar thing ?

    I don't think it worthless. The only problem would be that all words won't be translated so you wold need to translate them by hand. As i see your english is ok. How about this idea;

    Go to any serbian news portal
    find some good articles
    translate them to english
    sell them to AC

    btw. pozdrav is Hrvatske (greetings form Croatia)

    Depends:

    1. Competition is lower in most cases than marketing in English.
    2. And this is at the same time the reason for 1. The market in English is a very big one.

    It depends on your niche, but many niches that have competition in the US, might actually have NONE in German.

    If you want quick cash, I would go for the English stuff because you will notice you have more opportunity (at least for now...) at better prices. Think like outsourcing stuff like articles etc.
    If for long term and having your own stuff, it might be better to get experience locally in the market you have close to you. And THAN expending that experience, skills gained, insights, keyword knowledge, salessystem etc to the INTERNATIONAL market.
    Notice I don't say US there. German has a broad reach though and will bring you far in certain sectors. There are HUNGRY markets there that are totally depending on English. Come in to these in German and you will own them.
