    I have a friend who doesn't know spanish but making 6 figures usd a yr from his spanish website. Basically he use his seo skills to find kws, and hire cheap spanish writers, after a yr his site is making lots of money.

    What he did was find few of English site of a particular niche which is already doing well in the English world, then he ask those cheap spanish writers to rewrite shit loads of articles, guess what he gave them? a list of links of those english sites lol.

    He shared with me here's the most critical points of all:

    1. cheap spanish writers
    he constantly hire students, because students can be hard to manage, they are cheap but they can't commit much, one writer can churn 10 a week.

    2. willing to invest
    he fork out 50% of his salary of a day job to start this. For me that was a bold move, most of the people will just watching netflix and wake up the next morning go to work, instead saving his money into the bank, he chose to invest. Most of the budget goes to content first.

    3. kw research
    he said he actually started a few site but they did not take off, because he randomly pick a few high traffic site and ask people to rewrite it into spanish, that doesn't work because he chose the super competitive niche without any research.

    I'm spanish myself and I actually thought about doing all that by my own. I have too many things in my plate right now but as soon as I can, I will try that method.

    I did the same mistake, writing articles without knowing anything about keyword competitiveness. Now I target low competition keywords with more average searches per month and that has helped me a lot.

    Actually, if you want to get a good price for articles, hiring Latin American writers/translators is the way to go, u$d is strong in 3r world countries.

    There're tons and tons of content that don't have a spanish equivalent online. So much brand new content can be created with just a basic translation and a little spin here and there.

    I'm from Argentina and every USA trending niches / method to make money online takes months to arrive. It's as simple as take a look at what is the new thing NOW and replicate it for the LATAM audience.

    That applies for every IG, TW, YT, SNAPCHAT, e-com method too.

    Of course, 3r world countries pay a lot less per leads, conventions or whatever, but can be compensated with higher volume if it's done right, plus a lower competition.

    I'm a translator and a content writer myself, so I plan to do this in the short term.

    If anybody is interested in a similar project you can send me a PM.
