If you choose not to take action on this method, I hope at least that it can inspire you.
The way I use to make money is actually no secret, and a lot of people are already doing it everyday... BUT the way I use it has a twist, which makes the whole difference between me earning no or little money, and me earning great amounts of passive income month after month!
So what am I talking about?
I am actually talking about good old fashioned affiliate marketing. Creating a website about a product or a group of products, and put your affiliate links on the site.
So what so special about that you probably ask...
Well, nothing actually! I probably do the same amount of work as you do with your affiliate site, but despite of that I dare to say I earn much more than most people here on WF do at affiliate marketing, just because of my little twist.
So what is your twist?
Most people in here write in English and target Google.com with their affiliate websites and SEO effort. By an example you could choose an Amazon or Clickbank product and promote this.
I guess most people here choose to target English and Google.com, because they either:
1. Are from USA or UK or another English speaking country.
2. Because they think the English market is way bigger, and they therefore can earn more money from more buyers.
For just 1½ year ago I would agree very much with these 2 points, but today I couldn't disagree more!
Because when you enter the English market, the competition is of course also dimensional much bigger.
We can probably agree on that more traffic means more money in your pocket. But I believe we also can agree on that more traffic means more competition, right?
So let me ask, when did you last time find a buyer keyword with 2000 monthly Google.com searches, and with little or almost no competition, where you can rank your keyword in little to no time on the first page of Google? Well these keywords do excist, but they surely don't hang around on trees.
But what if I showed you a garden where they actually hang around on trees?
If you took a look at my profile, you will notice that I am from Denmark. A nice little peaceful country with only about 6.000.000 citizens. Not much, eh! well, it's more than enough to make great money from the Danes..
What I do, is simply creating affiliate sites in Danish targeted Danish Google.dk and Danish people. Beside from this I do everything else that other affiliate marketers would do.
The SEO competition in Google.dk is very low on a lot of keywords, and even if they don't get as much traffic as the same English keywords would do, they still get well enough. Actually there are way too many low hanging fruits to pick up, and you don't even need to pick long tail keywords. It's really too easy!
To compare traffic, please look at these few examples taken from Google Keyword Planner Tool:
Google.com - English
- ipad accessories 27.100
- kitchen sink 12.100
- red rain boots 2.400
Google.dk - Danish (keywords translated to Danish)
- ipad accessories 1.600
- kitchen sink 1.600
- red rain boots 210
Would I go for all of these 3 keywords in Google.dk? YES! Would I earn good money? YES INDEED!
Luckely we have great affiliate networks in Denmark, so there are many affiliate offers to earn money from, including the above keywords.
As an example, a good one in my opinion, is the affiliate network Tradedoubler ( I am not connected or affiliated with them in any way)
They target the following countries:
- Belgium (Dutch)
- Belgium (French)
- Austria (German)
- Switzerland (German)
- Switzerland (French)
But I don't speak Danish or any of the other languages from the list above!?!
I hear what you say, but is that really a problem when you think about it? As I see it you have 2 options:
1. You can hire a country manager from a freelancer site, who can order articles and insert them on your affiliate site, etc.
2. Partner up with someone who are from or speak any of the languages from the above list.
It doesn't have to be any more complicated than this.
I wish you the best of luck.
I love to be a Dane!
P.S. Any questions about this, please feel free to ask me here. I will be happy to help as much I can.
