    When I first started my blogging Journey. I underestimate my country's market. I thought people in my country will never pay anything and only writing article in english can get me money. That's why I focus only on english content. We always want GOOD and FREE products. But in fact, the people pay for the the products, they do exist.

    At the begining, I wrote articles just for fun, but now it keeps making me money.
    Now I change my approach. Write more articles in my language, target very small group of people and "serve" theme well.

    So basically, There's 2 things I have learned
    - There's always room for you (super low competitive keywords with 100 search a month).
    - Dont underestimate the local market.

    This is from one article, 15 minutes work, I did not expect anything from this article. not much but I get sales everyday.

    Imaging how much I could earned if I had 30 articles like this. Yes, $100 a day (that's like 20k - 30k a moth in rich countries).

    So true, sometimes we just focus on big stuff... targeting USA, Europe and rich zones in the world.

    But even if you sell bread in your neighborhood and you are able to get 1 euro every day from the 100 citizens around you. It is quiet a decent income :)

    Congrats on your blog! :D

    This is bloddy true!! I have experienced myself, sometimes we didn't give much attention to smaller things which can be very effective rather than the bigger ones which may or may not convert.

    Thanks again for reminding everyone.

    Hey based on the image you attached it seems like you were selling multiple affiliate products on the same page. What plugin did you use to present these products?

    Congrats btw.

    This is so true. But citizens of most tier 2 and tier 3 countries still prefer the traditional shopping method, maybe due to trust issues or ignorance. One cool thing about targeting your local market is that ranking your keywords won't be too difficult.

    2 months. I guess because the competition is low, but the traffic is like 60 visits a month.

    Nothing special, I wrote the article for fun, I did not even do onpage and make Yoast green, lol.

    Thanks

    I do not use any affiliate plugins, No. Normally I only promote one product on one article.
