    Official List of Merchants Catering To Spanish Affiliates
    I’ve been reading a lot of the posts that touch on the topic of affiliates and Merchants that cater to Spanish speaking affiliates or website owners that have Spanish only sites or have Spanish language translation of their sites.

    Two programs were mentioned by Christine from Affiliate Future:

    1. "Nuestros Exitos"
    2. "Tienda Futbol Mundial"
    --------------------------------------

    3. Blue Host (not sure it belongs here yet)

    .I was contacted by James Grierson from Blue Host who says that Blue Host Cpanels can be set to Spanish. I wrote him back asking if Blue host has any Spanish language support for Latino/Spanish speaking clients in the US and abroad and if the checkout process is Spanish Language Friendly? Here’s his reply:
    "Currently all of our customer service is based in the USA and we only offer english support (although quite a few of our reps do speak spanish as a second language). We do not guarantee any other language support than English at this time. The checkout process and all website checkout is all in English only. We are looking at expanding the language support this year to include a few other niche markets, but I am not sure if/when that will occur."
    That means I can probably send him referrals but they may have trouble with the checkout process. A good sign is that some of his customer reps are bilingual and may "POSSIBLY" be able to help some of my referrals when they get in a jam but there is no sure guarantee.
    --------------------------------
    Shareasale (Network not friendly to the Spanish Market) however some of their merchants have expressed interest in Spanish affiliate efforts. See this post for more details: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...hlight=Spanish

    4. David Carter from magazinesquick.com for example points out that he has a Spanish magazine section that is geared towards the US Spanish Speaking community. Shareasale however labels his program with this slap in the face WARNING pointed out by Abestweb member parkaboy.

    Please Note: Membership applications are reviewed by our staff for acceptance, and you will typically receive an email from us within 24 hours from the time that you confirm your application (by confirmation email). Our Membership Review Team will review your site for the following things in order to accept you into our network:

    * Quality Site Design
    * Top-Level-Domain (i.e., www.yourdomainname.com) (not required but recommended)
    * Website Language (We only accept sites in English)
    * Prospective ability of your site to drive traffic to our Merchants
    * Any illegal, porn, hate, etc... on your site, or on sites that you link to
    * Other misc. factors
    I would also like to suggest to David Carter that he should translate his Spanish Language Magazine section into Spanish. Not all US Spanish speakers speak English. That would definitely help us get him more clients.

    ------------------------------------------
    Does anyone know if there are any Spanish language affiliate networks?
    Does anyone have a list of Spanish Language In House Affiliate programs?
    Does anyone know of any other programs that are Spanish "friendly"?
    Does anyone know of any merchants that want in?

    I know that there are probably many Spanish speaking Abestweb members (e.g. Lostdeviant) here that would love to hear from merchants that are making efforts to create a Spanish language interface, checkout, product reviews, ad banners, etc.

    Please don’t trip and fall on your way to throw your lists onto this thread.

    If you can figure out how to navigate their interface, Zanoz has some Spanish programs.

    Yes, I speak Spanish, I suppose that there are many other Spanish speakers here at ABW lurking in the shadows :-P
    As you mentioned, there aren't that many affiliate programs in Spanish. There aren't many websites in Spanish either, and the few that exist, typically are for only one country, almost always USA or Spain.
    I could help merchants or OPMs make their programs Spanish friendly for Mexico. In fact, my accountant always tells me how he wants to work with American companies to help them import their products. (He's actually starting an Import-Export business to go along with his Accounting firm. I'll be doing his website)

    Si, hablo español y me imagino que hay muchos mas escondidos por ahí. :-P bueno, Como mencionaste, hace falta programas de mercadotecnia en español. No hay muchos sitios en español y los pocos que hay solo son para un país, casi siempre, EUA o España. Puedo ofrecer mi apoyo a los que quieren hacer sus programas "Spanish-friendly" para México. De hecho, mi contador siempre me habla sobre hacer contacto con empresas de Estados Unidos para importar sus productos a México.

    Hi All, thanks for the mention Geno

    Yes, we run an affiliate network that works with advertisers and publishers who want or have Hispanic/Latino traffic. We work with offers in the US and Latam.

    I don't want to list the offers because that would be a plug that I have not paid for ---coming soon Haiko

    You can join by following the link on my sig or PMing me about specific programs.

    There are alot more Spanish-friendly programs coming out as advertisers become more informed about the potential traffic.

    Quick Note: Something very interesting is happening in the Spanish speaking world, especially Latin America. Many foreign banks have been investing in and opening up branches in Latam which has been forcing the local banks to actually offer better services like things we take for granted (credit cards, prepaid cards, online banking, etc.) This new competition = more credit, more online buying, etc. Brazil alone boasts about 77 million active credit cards.

    I just was going thru my email and one from Best Buy was in Spanish and didn't realize until now, unless it's new, that they have a version of their site in Spanish and links as well -

    ¡BestBuy.com en Español!
    Busca nuestro sitio BestBuy.com/espanol.

    Last year I paid a Spanish teacher, who also does translations, to totally translate one of my Baltimore sites. It is only a dozen pages long, but I had her do nearly "everything" - meta tags, image captions, alt tags, etc. I also have the same domain name with a different extension.

    But, alas, I have not yet taken the time to replicate the site. It really must move up on my to-do list. Two of my hotel suppliers have some language(s) support - one with the site nav and booking pages, but not hotel descriptions; whereas the other has great hotel descriptions in Spanish, but no booking page support (yet).

    The sites will be identical except for the language; and I plan to put a "button" on each one to refer users to the "other" site for the equivalent Spanish or English versions.

    I had talked in person with Easy Click Travel and with Orbitz a while back about such a scenario. Of course ECT is no more and even though Orbitz had originally contacted me, there has been no further follow-up. So, one day, soon I hope, a hotel supplier may offer good Baltimore inventory with true Spanish language support. With 13+ million anticipated visitors to Baltimore this year, I just know a lot of them could make use of a Spanish language "local" site.

    The shopping cart I am using on my new site has spanish language capability, however I don't have anyone that speaks or writes Spanish to handle customer service. Might be something that someone wants to consider setting up as a service to provide. I don't see it being needed on a daily basis at the launch, but it could grow. Perhaps providing a service that can be outsourced to many small businesses would be something to consider.

    AbeBooks runs IberLibro.com:
    http://www.iberlibro.com/docs/AffiliateProgram/

    It's completely Spanish. They're run out of our European office however, so if any is interested in more information, I can put them in touch with the right people.

    We also have links on AbeBooks.com that promote books in Spanish.

    We translated a page on LittleGiantLadder.com last year to Spanish and it carries forward through the shopping cart: http://www.littlegiantenespanol.com/home.php

    We have had this running for 14 months and see traffic but not sales. Our perceptions is that they search in Spanish but by in English.

    Hi Chuck,

    Have you checked your funnel to see if incoming Spanish traffic does indeed result in English purchase? I've seen it happen on alot of sites, but there should definitely be some Spanish lag purchases too.

    Suggestion: Offer a phone number for them to call. Sometimes Spanish dominant people prefer to complete a transaction on the phone. Of course, you'd need someone who speaks SP to take the call .

    Also, I noticed your T&C has a wierd character, prob due to trying to use the é in Términos.

    cheers, D

    Danay, thanks! Checked and the phone number on the Spanish site goes to a Spanish speaking rep. Will check on the conversion path.

    This is great information. Thanks Lost Deviant for your response in particular. Avanquest Software will be introducing a Latin America site as well as a North America Spanish language site. I was looking for a good affiliate network for these. I will definitely look into the ones mentioned.

    Thanks for giving me the push to get these going again!
