    Hey guys,

    I have been seeing success in membership sites, ebook selling... in English speaking markets. Has anyone has any success in these kinds of business in your mother tongue and targeting your home country market? For example if I were an Indonesian and I wanted to publish an ebook in Indonesian language and using all the IM tactics (like promoting on Web 2.0, blogs,etc), would it be the same or will the tactics be different?

    Please share what you think or if you know any life example. Thanks a bunch! :)

    IM is dominated by english as mostly all the sites are in english so I think I'll just try to have a bigger piece of pie in the english markets

    Thanks for the contribution friends. I have been wondering does SEO tactics used for English pages work the same for other languages and if SEO services can be offered to local companies.

    Absolutely,

    I am doing it everyday, and make a lot of money doing it.

    But, to make it offline, you still need many "classic" competencies, presentation skills, communication skills, selling skills etc
