    Hey BHW's,
    just got a question. I am building an instagram account through followliker in the fitness niche with my own pictures. So I have a pretty good body, thats not the problem.
    But I want to do my own online product (a video course) and use traffic from instagram.
    Now my question. I am a native german and I can't speak english very good, so I want to do this product in german. But my instagram followers are international.
    How can I monetize it then? How can I just reach the german ones? Is it even possible for me then, to sell my german product? Got any other advice of monetizing it?
    It's too hard for me to do the video course on english, so that's a bad idea.

    Thanks in advance, would greatly appreciate any helpful comment!

    Can you speak basic English? maybe make a video speaking english the best you can with subtitles? If you come across as likeable and knowledgeable your viewers will watch your videos and possibly buy the products whether you speak good English or not.

    I mean, im not sure video's in German will go down well on your instagram account with your followers being international. As for targeting German followers only, im not sure.

    Probably been no help there but put my pennies worth in anyway

    I am not too sure about the video part since your English is a bit limited, but i never give up on things because of a little challenge that can be worked around like the post above mine suggested (Subtitle).

    I have noticed one thing with people on IG though, they love to show off which is even the main purpose of the platform if you think about it, so here is my advise to you which also working for my friend right now.

    1. Offer lifestyle marketing through luxury items.

    2. Offer fashion items if you have good cloths that helps.

    Both are very successful on IG, you have to be up to it though, you need to visit nice places and take nice pictures, show off pictures of wrist watches from amazon, gadgets etc.

    Hope that makse sense lol

    Thank you very much for your answers and advice!
    I think subtitles Sounds pretty good to me. What u think is the best? German Video with english Subtitles or an english video with english/german subtitles?

    Thank you very much!

    Thank you all! Yea, I know alon gabbay. Problem is, that I've already started, so I've got lots of international traffic already.
    But thank you, I do not give up and I am doing the Video course in english, with german subtitles.
    Thank you everybody!
