I've created an ebook and put it on JVZoo and I've created a sales page.

How do I promote my product to the affiliates on JVZoo to get them selling the book?

    Create a JV page and submit to the big launch boards like muncheye.com and jvnotifypro.
    Create an affiliate contest.
    Join some Facebook groups about product launches and JVs.

    • A couple of things I might suggest in addition to the advice already given:

      1. Create your self a free front end (perhaps the first chapter of the book) to give away via a squeeze page.
      2. Promote the main product as the OTO and/or as part of the follow up emails
      3. Include an option for individuals to sign up as an affiliate to the product, therefore even if they don't want to buy the product themselves they still might want to promote as an affiliate.

      I hope this helps and I wish you all the best with the promotion of your book.

    Also check out Warriorjv to add your product to.

    If i may give some advice though, it's best to promote your affiliate program of your product weeks before the actual launch date and build an affiliate list.

    You need to create some buzz before the launch, because if you have no stats to show it's hard to get many affiliates on board after you launched.

    How do I promote my product to the affiliates on JVZoo to get them selling the book?
    If you want to find the top selling affiliates on JVZoo I can share a really effective method I use.

    1. Log into JVZoo and mouse over the "Marketplace" link on the JVZoo site menu. A drop-down menu will then pop up. Select "Top Sellers." A list of all of the top selling products in the last 30 days on JVzoo will pop up. Look to the right of the page and next to each product there will be a link that says "Affiliate Details." Click on that link for each top selling product and you will be redirected to the affiliate sign up page for the product.

    2. On each respective affiliate details page, there will be a large blue button that says "See the affiliate contest." Click on this button and you will end up on the affiliate contest page for that respective product. Scroll down the page until you reach the affiliate leaderboard. This leaderboard will contain the names of the 10 best affiliates for that product. These are the affiliates you want to recruit. If they have made it onto the leaderboard of a top selling product, then they know their stuff and more importantly, they know HOW TO MAKE SALES.

    3. I recommend you now try and contact these affiliates via Facebook. 99% of them will have a Facebook presence so simply copy the name from the affiliate leaderboard and do a Facebook search. There may be more than one person with that name, but by taking a look at what they are posting it will quickly become evident which one of them is the Internet Marketer.

    4. Send them a message and a friend request. Now, it's very important that you do this RIGHT and do not spam the person! I know I shouldn't have to post this but there will always be some people who will send them a one line message with a link to their affiliate sign up page. This won't work.

    When you send them a message, you should first introduce yourself and explain that you have been seeing their name on affiliate leaderboards and you are only looking for the VERY BEST affiliates to promote your product (flattery will get you EVERYWHERE). Then, you offer them a review copy. Now, some vendors are so uptight about giving out review copies to affiliates and I cannot understand why. If you are talking to an affiliate who can potentially make 20, 50, or even 100 or more sales of your product, you should be BEGGING them to take a review copy!

    If they accept your review copy, wait 3-5 days and then contact them again and ask them for their opinion on the product.

    BTW, this is not only a good affiliate recruiting strategy, it's a great way to get REAL testimonials and reviews of your product. You can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. The purest and best testimonials are unsolicited, so when you offer them a review copy, DO NOT make it contingent on them giving you a review. If they tell you they honestly enjoyed your product, then you may want to politely ask if they would not mind taking time from their busy schedule to leave you a testimonial. However, you should NEVER expect a review just because you gave them a copy.

    5. If you are going to give this method a shot, it's a good idea to have lots of quality promo tools to offer your affiliates. This doesn't have to be expensive. If you are a halfway decent writer you can write your own email swipes and you can get 3 or 4 banners made on Fiverr for around $20. If you want to go the extra mile you can even make a promo video for your affiliates to post on their blogs.

    * This is important.

    If you want to recruit the best affiliates (I call them "whales"), you will most certainly need to have your own affiliate contest. I find that offering cash prizes for the top 3 sellers is best, and then for consolation prizes you can offer things like gift cards for Amazon or iTunes, etc.

    Anyway, that's just one way to do it that will work if done right.

    I wish you the best of luck and I hope you recruit lots of good affiliates and sell tons of your products!

        In your experience, do the affiliates which your post describes how to recruit care about whether or not the sales page has a proven track record of converting -- backed up with data that the vendor has to acquire by going out into the marketplace and actually generating sales?
        I would say that all smart affiliates care very much about the effectiveness of the sales page, earnings per click, etc. However, if it is a marketer's first launch he/she will not be able to provide much in the way of those types of stats simply because it's their first launch.

        I can only speak from my personal experience. I have a lot of vendors approach me and want me to promote their upcoming launch. I am at the point now where a lot of times I don't even have to ask for review copies, they are just sent to me in the hopes I will like the product and promote it. I'm sure this is due to the fact that I have a high number of affiliate sales on both JVZoo & Warrior Plus.

        That being said, when I receive a request to promote a product, of course I care about the vendor's track record, especially number of sales & EPCs from previous launches. Another stat to look very closely at is refund rates. If a product has 100+ sales and a refund rate that is higher than 3% I probably would not promote it.

        However, if it's a marketer's first launch, I will still consider promoting it, but I have to base my decision on other variables since sales stats are non-existent. For instance, I might look at sales copy, graphics, affiliate tools, and of course most importantly- the quality of the product. I may even ask around and find out if other marketers I know have heard of or worked with this person before. In other words, I would do my due diligence before recommending any product to my subscribers.

        If it's a product that I like and one that I think will provide tremendous value to my subscribers for the asking price, I would have no problem promoting it even if it is the vendor's very first launch.

        I hope that has answered your question.

    For Best Jv Attraction it is important to have a sales funnel, front end book costing $7 - $9 dimesale, 100% commissions to affiliate and make sure you are building list. Then OTO upsell 50% commission then OTO downsell, 50% affiiate commission and if you are too good high ticket sale of monthly recurring sale at 50% commission. then you can have contests prices and so on. More than anything the funnel is the one that matters, atleast to me it matters.

    Thank You

    Good luck!

    On jvzoo you have to network. Almost all the big ones just take turns pushing each others stuff. They even have launch calendars so they don't overlap each other!

If you can't do this, another thing you can do is connect with newbies and teach them how to sell affiliate products and give them yours to promote.
      Your post actually brought to mind another technique that works well to recruit affiliates but unfortunately, this one costs money.

      You create an awesome JV page with lots of great tools and you provide affiliate marketing training materials in the form of videos and/or ebooks as well, but to get those and also to be notified of any news about the upcoming launch, they have to opt-in to your affiliate list.

      You could promote this page by buying solo ads. If you could buy 500-1000 clicks at a time, that would be best, but if you do not have a large budget you can buy some 100-200 click solos. Obviously, you will not recruit as many potential affiliates with smaller click buys.

      Make sure you check out any sellers thoroughly before you buy. Ask to see testimonials. Don't be afraid to contact previous buyers and ask about their results. People will not mind. In fact, if they got scammed they will want to help you out and let you know. The reason why I bring this up is because there are a lot of dishonest solo sellers these days.

      Another thing that is being done a lot to promote upcoming launches is Facebook ads. Again, this costs money. If you don't do it right it could cost you a lot and not produce the results you were hoping for.

      These are just options if you have an advertising budget. If not, I recommend networking on JVZoo as I and several others have mentioned in their posts already.

    How good is the sales page?

    You'll get fewer sales if your affiliates have to rely on emails to sell your stuff.

    Hello!

    Check the steps below for some ideas:

    1. Distribute review copies and collect testimonials.
    2. Create a JV page with all the required tools that your affiliates need. The more resources you add, the better it gets.
    3. Give good commissions to your affiliates. I would not recommend anything less than 50%.
    4. Market your JV Page and product on social media networks (e.g. Facebook, Google+, Twitter and YouTube).
    5. Announce your launch on sites like MunchEye.com and JVNotifyPro.
    6. Create affiliate contents.
    7. Contact the top affiliates of JVZoo and inform them about your product. Make sure to have a decent JV page in place and a great contest at hand before attempting this step. It is good to note as well that you must give a good commission rate for best results.
    8. Contact those product creators that you know they work as affiliates as well.

    There are many tips to mention on here, the other members though listed most of them above.

    Good luck with your launch and wish you all the best!

    I have skimmed over what others have shared and what I have found to be extremely useful before anything else is to build relationships with potential JV partners.

    Great advice I was given at one point was to dedicate at least half an hour a day to get to know someone in your industry. Look at it as a business task but don't go into the relationship only wanting something from the person offer some sort of value too..

    We are more likely to help a friend get more sales (If they have an amazing product) than a stranger turning up in our inbox pitching me to push their product to my list

    @NicheBlogger75 has some great techniques!

    I recommend to follow that advice AND also try this...

    Do a Google search for your competitor's names and product(s). In the search results you should see review websites, etc. Those are usually their affiliates. Click on those and try to find their contact information, like an email address or just contact them through their website. I compile a spreadsheet of "Affiliate Prospects" and just send them out an email introducing yourself. If they are promoting your competitor, it's a pretty good bet they would promote for you too!

    Hope this helps. -KJH

      This is a super idea! Honestly, I'm a little jealous I didn't think of it myself

      Seriously, though, this can be very powerful. I think there are some great variations on this strategy that you could try as well.

      For instance, if you find a review site that is ranking very well for several popular products, you might contact the website owner/affiliate and offer to write a guest post reviewing your own product. Could this be considered unethical? I don't think so. Why? There are several reasons. For one, when you write up your sales copy you are pretty much reviewing your product for potential customers anyway.

      Also, as long as you are completely honest with your review then I think it's actually better than some of the "assembly line" reviews I see written about all of the major launches. Secondly, who knows your product better than you? Nobody should, and therefore as long as you are 100% honest, your review should be one of the most informative and helpful out there. Sure, you will be a little biased and may feel like embellishing a bit, but you will have to fight off that urge and be completely truthful!

      Also, if you have actual valid testimonials (not junk that you paid someone to write on Fiverr - that is so wrong IMO), then you can ask the testimonial writer if it's alright to use their testimonials as part of your review article. Several testimonials could provide you with most of the content for the article.

      I would recommend including in your review article around 800-1000 words, at least 3 images and at least 1 video. In other words, make this an awesome article that the website owner would be proud to publish.

      This is a win-win for both parties, because if you have a great review the website owner will benefit from it just as much, if not more, than the product vendor.

      Hats off to KellyJoHill. This is really a nice idea.
