    from the start, three years ago,I had known if I want to make big bucks online I have to speak English fluently.

    I never liked cpa / ppd / porn methods because it's not my thing, plus I think of the well being of my traffic ( yeah I am a good hearthed internet marketer) I don't like exploiting people for money. enough of me.

    rather I though ( copywriting / making a product / membership sites / email marketing / growing youtube channel ) were the key to richness. sadly I've hit some barriers.1- I am a nobody, 2-I don't have anything to teach, 3- my English sucked.

    three years later and am still not very confident of my English. I've been doing some graphic design work and made 1000$. not a huge amount to make in three years but still it's better than nothing, meanwhile I was reading English books and singing English songs XD because I can't afford a teacher :).

    So .. was I overestimating the importance of English? should have I just hired a copywritier to write my email campaign or something ?

    I'm 21 yr old now, am not panicking of the lost time, a bit sad tho because I could have done stuff much differently . the key to success is patience, taking is slow and easy, step by step you'll reach your goals.

    It's very important yes. English is very important online. I think it's the only barrier I have even if I think I speak fluently. I missunderstand some expressions, and I lack of words. Wise words, if you know what I mean.

    It all depends on who you are marketing to.
    If your Market is English speaking then you do need acceptable language skills and use a copywriter or spokesman as necessary.

    I agree with Asif WILSON Khan. While English may be the scientific language of the world and a widely spoken language, if you are not marketing to an English speaking market, then fluency in English just does not matter. The language of the people you are marketing to is what matters.

    It's obviously 'important' to know it on a basic communication level. I've done some of my best business with someone who spoke broken English. It's not how deep you know that language, it's how well you use what you know to your advantage.

    I'm trying to give a reasonable answer to your question OP, but I just can't miss the fact that Asif is about to hit 10k posts! Congrats!

    if you want to work globally yeah english its important, if you're targetting a specific nation you have to be fluent on the language of that nation, the russians and chinese are so big they don't have to care about english, the same for Koreans.

    If you want to learn english you can try the app Duolingo on android, there's no reason nowadays to not learn english, there are so many sources.

    I have to say agree with this comment. English is not my daily speaking thing but I manage to "advantage" native English speakers from US and CA help me boost my channel youtube from view thousand sub to 100k and beyond

    I'm just gonna put it this way, nearly every country in the World is either learning Spanish or English with some exception but the general bottle-neck is coming up English Language.
