Common JVZoo mistake you can me making too ...

by Raydal
17 replies
This might be common knowledge or "common sense" to some but
I was caught in it so maybe other vendors are doing the same as well.

What?

Driving traffic yourself to your JVzoo page.

Now since JVzoo is an affiliate platform, then the vendors should
not be driving traffic themselves to their page but affiliates should. You are
paying JVzoo (or any other affiliate platform) for their affiliate
sales system, so to drive traffic yourself and paying a fee would
only be robbing yourself.

So have a separate page for your affiliates and another for yourself.

    Good share. I don't have any products on their platform, but definitely makes sense to host a seperate landing page when I do.

      Actually, this would apply to any such services that charge a per transaction fee... would it not?

      For example Warrior Payments, Warrior Plus, Digiresults, ClickBank, etc.

        Nice tip.. But also you should split test and optimize your sales funnel before you start promoting you product on JVZoo or other platforms, so you should already have somethin independent from your JVZoo account before you start attracting JV's

    Raydal:

    Good to see your input.

    Question: From a Copywriting perspective...

    Is there "trust" with the JVzoo Button?

    Meaning, do people buy more readily when they see it vs. seeing a more generic button such as RAP (In Syd's case)?

    I guess it would be worth split testing (as someone else suggested) or have you found differently?

    Sincerely,
    Charles

      For me, as I can't speak for others, Seeing a JVZoo order button causes me to not make the purchase.

      I do still buy from the JVZoo platform only if I have no other option. But I do not sell anything from the JVZoo platform. I know many marketers who have left JVZoo for other platforms. So I don't see having the JVZoo order button on a sales letter as any advantage and could possibly be a disadvantage.

      Best regards,
      Steve Yakim

      There is no such thing as a "RAP" button, as I see no good reason to use my customers' order buttons to advertise RAP. RAP isn't a service, and I don't believe in trying to hijack my customers' sales pages with advertisements for my product.

        Yeah isn't the so-called "RAP button" he's referring to actually just a generic PayPal button? I think that's what he meant. A generic PayPal button vs "Powered by JVZoo". I don't think the name JVZooo makes a cred difference.

          As I said, there is no such thing as a "RAP button. Every RAP seller chooses their own order button image and can use a standard Paypal button, or any other button image they like.

      I didn't see any difference between my button and theirs. I thought the button
      would attract more affiliates, but that doesn't seem to work. I just caught
      myself that I was paying fees for my own sales and switched back to my
      own button.

    Even if it were the case that the JVZoo button gave your page credibility, which I doubt very much that's the case, if anything I think most of their buttons are awful, you could always download their button to your server and use it, if you really wanted to keep your stuff congruent. #runonsentence

    Raydal you're definitely right. I haven't thought about that either. It's not as clear cut if you're promoting a WSO though, and if most of your affiliates are WSO sellers.

    Oh yeah - and vice versa. You can use your own buttons with JVZoo just as easily, if you use the last button option they give you. You just put in your own image.

    Hey Ray,

    Quick question. One of the reasons I was using JVZoo was the fact that the API took your buyer and put them on a buyer's list in AWeber. This is before you made a good point. Did you, or do you use them for the same reason?

    I've been rethinking this strategy, since I'm not seeing a lot of value in PayPal email addresses. So perhaps you use a different strategy, like sending them to an opt-in page to get their download?

      My products are behind a membership script so the buyer "optins" at the time the
      sale is made. But you do have a point about the aweber integration. If that's
      how your system is set up, then you have to weigh that against the JVzoo fees.

    I noticed this a long time ago. JVZoo takes a cut of every sale made, and that's perfectly fine. Then I began noticing that many times they were also taking the affiliate's percentage on top of their sales fee.

    I'm not 100% sure about this but I believe if somebody buys one of your products directly from their marketplace and was not sent there by an affiliate or yourself then they get to keep the affiliate percentage.

    I have no problem with their policy, as they are in it to make money just like everyone else. What I do is to set up two different sales pages if I know I want to promote the product myself. One is set up through JVZoo and the other I set up for my own traffic.

      If there is no affiliate, then they just take their fee, not the affiliate cut just
      like ClickBank would. If they were taking the affiliate fee when it was a
      direct sale then that would be messed up.
