    Whilst I was trawling the web for good places to build links from, I found this website which I can quite easily put a link with a description on the home page. The website receives quite a lot of traffic, however according to alexa most of this traffic comes from Pakistan, Egypt and India.

    So I figure the best thing to put there is some kind of CPA offer with a landing page, but I have no experience with traffic from these countries. Does anybody know of any CPA offers that I can put up here, that will convert well for worldwide traffic(Pakistan, India etc...)?

    Thanks

    Don't waste your time for pennies if even that much...

    Really?? I reckon this site is getting 50k uniques a day at least, and none of it is being monetized properly...

    You should understand your market first before you go into business in foreign countries. More is not always more.

    Concerning Pakistan, half of the population works in agriculture. That should tell you something. You aren't going to be attracting above average households that are willing to throw money on goods and services advertised on the Internet. To get a sense of what you would be working with, the country is ranked in the lower 25% tile in the world at $2,800 GDP/person. Compare that to the US which is ranked 11th in the world at $48,300 GDP/person.

    Put another way, you would be advertising to a consumer base that is in the lowest 2% bracket of the US population.

    This is actually pretty tough. I myself have a lot of traffic from India, Pakistan, Philippines... yet the CPC on Adsense is very low and these people NEVER bought a single product.

    On the other hand, last one person from Malawi purchased a product in a value of $13 and one more from Botswana purchased a product in the value of $15.
    This actually gives me some hope, that if visitors from these countries can be monetized, there's also some chance for countries like Pakistan or India... But I believe prices must be lower for them.
