Success in Other Languages?

15 replies
I got a Clickbank check the other day and my husband was intrigued because he knows that I haven't done a lot of work on it recently. He now wants to get started.

He's Japanese.

This is both a blessing and a curse. I don't believe that there is nearly the amount of competition in japanese as there would be in English, but there are also not the same types of resources--at least that we can find.

For example, he's picked his niche and the product that he wants to promote. But where can we put articles outside of his own site?

Anyone else doing this successfully?

Love,
Shannon

  • Japan is the second largest economy in the world.

    Start thinking about how he can use his knowledge to help Japanese Americans.

    It's all about defining the customer.

    Look at Japanese Websites, Directories, etc.

    If it were me I would be Targeting Wealthy Vacation Travelers from Japan to Hawaii or other Vacation area.

    My brother lives in Japan and has lived there more than half of his life. He makes much of his living off of the Internet, selling books he wrote in Japanese. He does a fair bit of YouTube marketing for his books and has a website. (I'd put of his link, but he's really kind of eccentric, if not crazy, so I'm not going there).

    There are a number of social networking sites in languages other than English (YouTube - Broadcast Yourself). After all, English may be the main business language of the world, but most people on this planet primarily use languages other than English.

    Considering Japan's economic wealth, definitely go for their market

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've been trying to gather some resources and tell him what to search for.

    ProductCreator...I don't understand what that link is supposed to do. I tried to add a site of mine just to see what happened and it wanted me to put code on my site, so I didn't go through with it.

    Love,
    Shannon

    I did some Clickbank campaigns in Germany and got some good results. Way less competition, but also less products to promote. I would say go for it!

    I have an ebook in English on Clickbank and considered getting translated into another language a while ago. You've just prompted me to look into getting it translated, not sure which language yet... Spanish, Chinese or Japanese... I'll have a think.

      Chinese might not be a good idea. It would get bootlegged so fast, your head would spin. Japanese might make more sense, I'd reckon.

    I'd say go for it. There is everything to gain and next to nothing to lose. I myself do a surprising amount of business in the orient. In spite of the fact that I don't speak any of the languages spoken there, nor do I use any translation software. Just something about me and particularly my business tends to attract people from the far east.
