Choose your markets

Hi All,

I need to choose on 4 languages that are best to start an international soccer site with.

would you choose by population? internet penetration rate? income levels?

which four countries you feel are first priority?

Regards,
Michael.

Re: Choose your markets

for Mobile enabled content...

go with German for Europe....
French for Francophone Africa.....

In terms of passion.......Italian is insane for soccer....

but Spanish and Portugese are essential.....

In Brazil, even criminals and cops leave the streets to watch games....it is that serious...

Re: Choose your markets

1. Spanish
2. Portuguese
3. English
4. German

Regarding the other questions, depends exactly what type of football site do you have planned. Proper websites? or just Made for adsense minisites?
Definitely Spanish and Portuguese as top 2 though based on population, and popularity of football and less competition from local sites.
