    How to earn money from non-American visitors?

    Hi,

    I am planning a site that is going to sell a cheap
    software product and will have many visitors (lets
    assume so). I want to advertise in order to earn
    money to pay at least the bills of the bandwidth and
    my problem is that non-American visitors are not
    counted by advertisers. Many of my visitors
    may come from China and India as well as Europe and
    other countries. Does anybody know how, after all, I
    can earn money from those visitors?

    Thanks,

    David

    Many casino ads do well with international traffic, so I would recommend placing one or more of those on your site. Most of them have a high CPA too.

    How do you know the visitor's country?

    Thanks, any more ideas?

    How can I - and the adversier/network - identify
    the country of the visitor?

    If you join a CPA program, I doubt they'd care what kind of visitors you had. Just find a good targetted product.

    Also remember some of the best affiliate programs are individual sites who won't care versus the ones on CJ.

    From wat I understand the basis of your site is selling a software product????
    Correct me if Im wrong there.
    What your going to notice in "selling" on the net when you look at credit card sales is that there are at least 20 countries that convert better then the states....in fact, when you you look at the volume of traffic from the states in relation to sales its actually pretty lousy traffic.
    For example, when I look at my credit card sales over the last six months it takes 600 surfers from the States to equal the sales of just one surfer from the U.K.
    My advice is that if you have traffic from all over the world to forget about advertisers and just concentrate on selling stuff.
    Sales come from all over the world, with your best converting traffic being, U.K., Australia, Canada, Europe, NZ, Singapore.
    Bandwith is generally not an issue on a non-adult site...but if it is an issue, u need to look at convertion to ratio of traffic from each country.

    What do you mean by: "it is an issue, u need to look at convertion to ratio of traffic from each country."

    I had another question: how can I know from which
    country is the visitor at my site, and then maybe
    display another ad?

    Thanks,
    David

    this isn't even remotely true unless your site only sells fish & chips

    Are they relyable on payment?

    Arrow Hey Craig

    Please advise on some good converting Casinos.
    Specially CPA offers if possible.
    Any network will do or individual sites.
    They should be paying though ; )

    can't you sign up for a heap of regular programs in each major international country where you have visitors coming from and then jsut put the banners and their links in phpadsnew and geotarget the right ads at the right visitors.

    forget running just casino ads to internationals. it just cheapens your site because everyone is doing it.

    hmm...

    Running a casino ad on a software site. Sounds like an instant turn-off to me.
