3 Biggest Benefits of Using JVZoo

JVZoo is a website like ClickBank that makes it easy for marketers and publishers alike to take advantage of affiliate programs. Whether you choose JVZoo or another options like ClickBank, this is a fantastic way to make a huge profit and to drastically increase your sales. Read on to find out three of the biggest reasons why.

Benefit One: You Make More Sales

From the point of view of a publisher, this means that you can create a digital product such as an eBook and then allow affiliates to sell it. What this means, is that others will be able to direct traffic to your landing page or your checkout page and then when someone buys your product, you will have to pay a commission fee to the affiliate and a percentage to JVZoo as well.

At first this might sound like you're essentially giving away your profit to a bunch of third parties after spending months working on it. The reality though is quite different. What is really happening here is that your extending your sales hugely by creating an army of marketers who will all be pushing your products to audiences that otherwise wouldn't have seen them. This means your profits will grow hugely and more than cover the cost of the fees.

Benefit Two: You Carry On Selling

More to the point though, you can do all this while carrying on selling your product directly from your own landing page. In other words, any money you make through JVZoo will be made on top of your existing profits so there's literally no downside. Even if you only make one extra sale and you pay 60% commission, that's still 40% of one sale that you wouldn't have made otherwise.

The only risk here is that your affiliates may be so good that they start to cannibalize your own sales meaning that people are buying from them instead of you directly. The web is a huge place so this rarely happens but if it does then you can always just take your product off of JVZoo – you stay in complete control the entire time.

Benefit Three: You Get Free Exposure

Another point that often gets overlooked is that you get completely free exposure by using tools like JVZoo. In other words, when an affiliate promotes your product, they will also be promoting your brand. Then, even if they don't make a sale, you'll still be increasing your brand recognition and absolutely free of cost!

5 Benefits of a Digital Product Business

If you're looking for a business model that allows you to generate genuinely passive income and to make a lot of money in the process, then a digital product business might just be right for you. Digital products are products that exist solely in a digital format and include the likes of software, eBooks, e-courses and computer games. They also just so happen to offer perhaps the best business opportunity of any type of product, so read on to find out what makes them such a great choice for making money online.

1 No Overheads

Right away, with a digital product you have no overheads. That is to say, you might have overheads initially while you're developing your product but from that point on you will then be able to sell as many copies as you like with no need to pay for materials or anything else. Every sale will be 100% profit which can't really be said about any other business model.

2 It's Truly Passive

Of course some services are also like this. If you are a writer or web designer for instance, then you probably won't have to spend any money to make money and that means that you can keep 100% profit.

But where a service business falls down is in the fact that you will be exchanging your time for money. This in turn means you'll need to constantly be available at specific times of day and you might even need to travel.

A digital product though is truly passive. Once you have set up an online store and you have people visiting your site, you can make money while you sleep or while you're on holiday somewhere sunny.

3 No Stock

With a digital product you require zero digital space for stock and that means you don't need to rent a warehouse or fill your front room with books.

4 Low Investment

Just as there are no overheads, there is also very little investment necessary. This means it will take barely any time for you to break even and to start generating real profit. In turn this also means that there's no risk so you'll be able to start your business without taking out a huge loan and putting your family in danger.

5 No Delivery

As though all that wasn't enough, digital products don't even require delivery. That means you won't have stock going missing or customers claiming they never received their goods. Digital products are cheaper and faster in every way.

JVZoo vs ClickBank vs WSO Pro

JVZoo, ClickBank and WSO Pro are three tools that allow you to set up affiliate programs for your products. If you have spent time creating (or outsourcing the creation of) your own eBook, then an affiliate program essentially gives you an army of marketers who can help you to get make more sales and gain more exposure in exchange for a percentage of your profits. This is all while you carry on making sales of your own, meaning that you'll gain extra sales at no detriment to your current business model.

But how do you decide which tool to use? If you're going to use something like JVZoo, ClickBank or WSO Pro… which will result in the best profits and most exposure?

The Differences

WSO Pro was setup primarily to sell products on Warrior Forum but have now caught up with times. Clickbank used to be the leader in digital products but have a one off costs for each product launch. The challenger JVZoo have gained popularity since it was launched and has become the favourite of many new marketers.

WSO Pro, JVZoo and ClickBank all work independently of any other site or service meaning there's no limit on how many people you can add. In principle you would think that this would make them easier and simpler to set up, but this is where ClickBank has dropped the ball being a little dated in its user interface and some of its business practices. It's complicated to set up and especially when compared to something like JVZoo which is very easy to get started with and to integrate with an autoresponder. This last point makes it great for e-mail marketers. JVZoo also makes it very easy to create a sales funnel though in its defense ClickBank is perhaps the best known option and thus has the largest number of affiliates. Another factor to consider is of course the price. Each of these services takes some commission, with the lowest being WSO Pro, the highest being ClickBank and JVZoo sitting somewhere in the middle.

So Which One?

So with all that in mind… which one should you choose?

Well, this is going to depend on the nature of your business and your goals. If you are already a Warrior Forum member then WSO Pro is a comfortable place to start out. On the other hand though, for those wanting to create great sales funnels and integrate an e-mail campaign, JVZoo might be a better choice. In fact, JVZoo probably wins out just about as the best 'all-rounder'. Then again though, why not just use all three or the others that I have spoke about in the past? That's the brilliance of having your own digital product, you are beholden to no one!

Free Online Image Editors

Forget Adobe Photoshop (well not quite for advanced editing) or any expensive image editors for your promotional graphic updates like banners, adding watermarks or any image posted to your social media sites. Here are some of the online editors I use while I don't have access to my laptop. I am ranking them by most frequent use for my sites. They all do not require any upfront registration and allow you to save the edited images locally. 1. Online Image Editor

It does what it says on the tin and is a very strip down basic image editor with classic interface but gets the job done. No registration required and I frequently use this to add watermarks to pictures. There are limitations on font choices and colour.

2. PhotoPea

This tool allows you to open and edit .psd files online without having to have adobe photoshop install on your machine. It is particularly useful as most ready made graphic packs come with .psd files as a source.

3. Pixlr

Similar to PhotoPea, the sites seems to be more popular as online photo editors but can be used to enhance your graphics especially social media postings. Play with the different filters and be surprised with the results it creates.

There are tons of free online image editors available online including Canva which I shared previously.

Enjoy and happy discovering!
