Good Morning Warriors.

I am curious if anyone is doing well marketing IM in the spanish market?

If so, do you know of any good IM forums in the spanish?

    I think the market is still not mature enough for you to find solid results from a forum. I believe that you need to look at "grass roots" marketing as this is where the Spanish market would still be effectively tapped.

    The research data that would really be beneficial to a variety of marketers is how successful spanish kindle books are doing. I'm sure someone has already thought about that market, but as kindles and ebooks become more mainstream (even more so than they are today) surely spanish language books are being purchased.

      I have a couple of traditional books in Spanish published in kindle. The funny part is that I sell between 5 and 7 times more books on amazon.com that amazon.es.

    The Spanish market is still a bit reticent about working with foreigners. They are pretty competitive and like to keep things inside their country

      Ok, so what about marketing to those here in the United States that speak Spanish? Or developing a site similar to the WF but in Spanish?

    You'll have a hard time finding a forum as good as WF outside WF. Especially in Spanish, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, etc...

    But Spanish (spoken) market is HUGE.

    The spanish market is huge, however there isn't many communities that gather around internet marketing, the active forums are only a few and really limited on topics.

    The JV process frequently are made behind the scenes and is very hard to enter (where the Gurus close ranks among themselves and run their own affiliate networks).

    We usually see overpriced products that cost $97 or more and that are not even near on quality as the products offered in English for $27 or less.

    If you want to make money you need your own list and then you have 3 choices:

    1 Offer only your own products or services
    2 Rely on clickbank spanish launches
    3 Offer english products or services (with an extremely low CTR)

    So, there is a market with great potential, and a good product for a fair price can make some serious money.

    I was doing a decent amount of money in the spanish IM market, but after weeding out I ran out of products and promotions, now I mail a promo once a month if so...

    From my own experience I think it's not a good choice at least not now maybe in 10 years from now. Most People from latin america dont buy stuff online because are afraid of using their cc and getting scammed, let alone buying IM related products... you might have better luck targeting people from Spain though.

      The Spanish market in US is very interesting. I am translating books right now like crazy. In Kindle, they have their own section and the competition is ludicrous.
      What happens with the Spanish market is more or less what happens with the English speaking market, they expect the language to be dealt with respectfully. Those who don´t, do not have much chances.

    Hey,

    There are various issues with the Spanish market but there are def opportunities. Online payment is the biggest issue at the moment.

    Have a look here for a LATAM IM mastermind:

    The idea for a WF in spanish also goes around there me and another warrior actually even started working on it however due to lack of time at the moment the project kinda died out. Current status is there is a nice domain and I installed Vanilla forums on it.. kinda stopped there.

    Edit: hi Sandra how's going? - she is the 'other warrior' I just mentioned

      Hey Mr, long time no see...

      Sorry for vanishing. Let´s talk when you have time. The kindle Spanish market is very active, I did a deal with a couple of clients to access the stats. And I´m also translating my own books. It´s going to get interesting.

    The Spanish market is growing pretty quick and the competition is far less in a lot of niches!

    I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed. And the number of times I succeed Is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep trying.

    Hi everybody, I am new to this forum and one of the reasons I joined was because I am looking for a native Spanish speaking copywriter with DM experience. We are looking to offer financial services to the Latam market (and Spain to a lesser extent)... including e-commerce merchant facilities, though that's a little bit further down the line.

    I speak Spanish but cannot write copy as it's not my native language. We are looking for one or more business writers who can write articles on international financial services in Spanish.

    Any advice or recommendations really appreciated. Please PM me.

    Thanks!
