Hi,
ARABIC is my first language, and I trust your inputs guys in this thread. I am thinking of writing my inputs about ways of making money online but the book will be written in ARABIC.
Yes, I am not making tons of money online, but I have an experience with Fiverr, Clickbank adsense,freelancer, and Warrior forum.

I was thinking to communicate with a successful internet marketer and I can translate his e-book or course, and sell it and we split the profit.

What is your advice here?

    I am not even sure why this is a question.. If you are going to market to a region then you write in the appropriate language. It does not matter if it is French, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, etc. etc.

      How you think you came to be the "voice" of the WF, speaking for "US", is beyond my comprehension. IF the WF allowed certificates or had little icons for most annoying poster, I think you'd win the daily prize hands down.

      Why are you here? Do you need/want help or are you offering it, or just jumping in and taking over the forum?... which is what it appears to be.

      Quit trawling the WF, and try to see what you are doing to yourself, OK?

      WE welcome all new people with open arms, up to a point, you are one of the reasons why the WF is suffering from a lack of respect in the bigger IM community. Can you give this some serious thought or are you very thin skinned?

    I agree with Al - I've recommended many times that people market in their own language when possible. Very smart of you to consider that rather than assuming everything must be 'in English'.



    Internet use is still increasing in many countries. You not only know your own language - you know what people in your country want - what they will buy - their lifestyles and work habits, etc. You know what tools and software work with the resources available in your country.


    There are many countries in the world where use of the internet is only now becoming accepted and widespread. I think those marketers who are able to focus on those areas will be leaders online in the future.

    You missed the entire point of the thread - not everything has to be 'in English' online....and this is not a translation site.

    I think it's a good idea as long as you market to people who speak Arabic.

    This can work really well for you. Good luck.

    it works making money online and being active online, in general, should not be limited to one language indeed the more language you can promote your offers with the more potential client /customer/follower you can get simple as that pal so you should do it in Arabic too

    Just make sure that your target audience speaks Arabic otherwise no one will understand .

    Secondly you are saying you want to contact a successful to translate and sell his ebook and split his profit.I do not see any marketer that is established cross promoting with you unless off course you have the audience and track record .

    Talking from experience my simple answer for you is "Don't"

    i tried and i know many other who have tried selling e-book in arabic language, and it just don't work

    the best you can make is sell 50 copies, and that if you really good, and then it over, and this is because of two factor

    1- the arabic community is not a big internet buyer, internet is still new in most arabic country

    2- and when they buy, they don't buy e-books,

    also your e-book will get shared for free on the many arabic forum, so from experience just don't do it, you will lose a lot of time and effort and not get any result
