Promoting JVZoo Products without any investment

38 replies
Hi there,

Recently, I joined JVZoo and want to promote its products.

The problem is that I'm really short of cash and can hardly spare any of it.

I have a blog though which receives around 10,000-12,000 visitors a month.

How can I promote JVZoo products without investing anything?

If you're going to suggest me to write a review on my blog then how can I write one without even trying it? And I cannot try it because I cannot buy it.

Can you guys help me get out of this dilemma?

Thank you.

    So you aren't monetizing those 10,000 visitors? Are you sure they are real?

    Does the topic of your blog match what you want to sell through JVZoo? In otherwords, how to make money? If so, shouldn't you try to figure out how to make some on your own first?

      I'm monetizing it but the CPM is not that good. Yes, they're real. I blog about many topics so yes, the product that I'll try to promote is relevant to the JVZoo product that I want to promote.

    Create a page for jvzoo on your blog.

    Put some jvzoo offer redirection URLs from your blog (not affiliate url)


    NOTE: if you place affiliate url, most of the websites will not allow it. Therefore you should redirect the offer from a dummy url from your website/blog


    Then promote your jvzoo blog page on social media like facebook, google plus, twitter
    Post picture on it and promote in pinterest
    Create group in facebook and add like minded people.
    Be active on forums and leave your signature.
    Create a business page on Linkedin and promote your blog with jvzoo product
    Make short videos and post on youtube concentrate on title and tags.
    Post classified ads, business listing and local citation
    Use social book marks
    Use reddit
    Use stumble upon
    All the above methods are free and do not need any special skills.

      The issue with Facebook groups, Reddit and other social media platforms is that the popular groups do not allow you to post links. Even when they're not affiliate links and leading to your blog.

      I was thinking of Facebook ads but I worry about the ROI as I've learned that the ads have turned expensive now.

      probably the best response out of the pack. Love it.

      Basically, go all in, but don't spam.

      And for the love of god, don't place the raw affiliate links anywhere

      When you are considering a purchase, which is best?


      a. Follow the recommendation of someone that had never used or seen the product in question?
      b. Buy following the advice of a random total stranger that promotes based on what he read elsewhere?
      c. Buy based on other's satisfaction with the product (testimonials and social proof)?
      d. Buy based on the proven performance of the product in delivering the benefits described in the sales campaign?

      e. Buy from a recognized authority in the niche who you already have experience with and who you know, like, and trust?
      f. Combination of c, d, and e.


      Yes, you can do a review and recommendation without ever using the product - lots of people do it. Is that strategy the best way to build a legitimate business and make sales? What do you think?

    Go to the sales page and then make notes about what the product does:

    - Make Bullet points of important features,
    - watch the video inside the sales page to get an idea what the product is all about
    -Watch review of other people who are promoting the same product on their website/youtube.

    Create your own traffic page inside your blog and then send the traffic to your affiliate link.

    This is completely free.

    You are short on cash
    You have 10000 to 12000 blog vistors permonth and barely have any cash to spare
    You have that much blog visitors and no cash ? What about the needs of your current audience ?
    Is the content that you are putting out high quality ? don not neglect the needs of the existing blog visitors in pursuit of the next shiny object.You need to get them involved by hosting Q and A sessions ,surveys to get a better understanding of their needs.Then after doing that you can search a product that matches there needs.

      Hi Jamel,

      Yes, I do have this number of visitors on my blog and I've monetized my traffic as well but I don't think my CPM is that good hence barely making any money out of it.

      Thanks.

    Hi

    How did you build your blog traffic up to 10,000 a month? That sounds like a topic many new marketers and bloggers would be interested in. Is it a subject your current website visitors would be interested in?

    Here's where I'm going with this...why don't you write a case study covering in detail how you achieved this traffic milestone and sell it for a nominal amount in order to build a buyers list. You can then market jvzoo affiliate offers to that list. Be sure to create an insiders facebook group and tie in group membership to the product purchase.

    There is more to it than this but if you do some research you can find out all you need to know about writing a sales letter, setting up an autoresponder, writing promo emails etc.

    I wouldn't go the phony review route, because your readers will sense that you are full of it and you will blow your credibility. Besides, you need to promote quality or your list will not be responsive. Try to get a review copy of any product you want to promote, just explain that you have a blog with traffic and you would like to do a review for your readers. If you don't get a response when you apply, then look up the product creator on facebook and try to send them a private message.
    If they won't approve you move on to another product.

    Remember these are only my opinions and I could be wrong!

      @Boblev,

      You know what?
      After reviewing the responses of all the members over here, I'm starting to believe that 10,000 visitors a month is really a big deal.
      I never thought of it like that.
      The Major portion of this 10,000 visitors comes from search engines. So I think that I should write about how I gained these 10,000 visitors, create a pdf and then give it away free against the email address.

      Thanks for making me realize that I should not take my current traffic for granted.

    You blog about many topics? Your blog should be focused on 1 topic if your end goal is money. Are you in it for the money, or are you looking to create a brand around yourself, and hopefully gain advertisers?

    Also, you said...

      I'm in it for the money but not at the cost of sacrificing what I love to do. I like to research about different topics and then write about them so I cannot help myself focusing on just one topic. I know the downsides of it but I'm willing to accept it. And I want to be able to make money while blogging about multiple niches.

      ...the product that I'll try to promote is relevant to the JVZoo product that I want to promote.
      This means that JVZoo products mainly revolve around internet marketing and online money making. So I also write about these two topics hence I'm sure that any product that I'll choose to promote on my blog won't be far off from one of my topics of the blog.

      Just to give you an idea, I'd like to mention my blog (with the hope that the moderators aren't going to scratch it out). The address to my blog is theusualstuff.com

      As you may see, I have created different categories based on different topics that I write about.

      I can very easily promote different products on my single blog based on different categories. The affiliate banners that my visitors see are based on the "category" of topic they're visiting. So if they're visiting a blog about Accounting and Finance, my visitors will see affiliate banners of products and services relevant to this niche.

      Online Money Making and Blogging are also a couple of the topics that I blog about hence, I can easily promote the majority of the JVZoo products available there.


      I hope I've made myself clear.

      Thank you.

      I was banned from it a long time ago. Like 10 years ago. Long before when I started this blog of mine.

    First i would advice you to make a review video, also try to write to the vendor requesting for a review copy to use in your video, sometimes they give these, where they do not, rely on the sales page, secondly go to fiverr and buy some back links so as to help your video rank, these can be gotten as low as 5 dollars. Also join niche related forums go type make money online forums into google, am sure you will get thousands of results, go to each of those, join and give valuable content, later you can invite people to check out your offer.
    these are a really good source of quality traffic, make sure you have a capture page set up so that you build your eail list slowly but surely, this will then later become your cash cow.
    i would aslo refer you to a youtube channel by Jono Armstrong, follow him and also take up his courses, he would be a good mentor for you in affiliate marketing.

    Get a part time or full time job Saad, make some money, buy the product, try it out, then review it. Also, do not bother trying to make money online unless you have some cash reserves because your desperation - no human I know is calm, confident, poised and detached from outcomes if they have not enough money to buy a simple affiliate product - will guarantee your failure, until you have a little comfortable pad of savings.

    Work a job offline. Make some scratch. Do things right online.

And even after the 90 day hold is over I have to chase the vendors like Matt Neer, Andrew Fox and Paul Lynch to get paid. They never respond to their emails. I have to usually send a support ticket to complain before some action is taken. If you are a smaller affiliate, I would stay away.

      Yea, alot of jvzoo vendors are afraid of getting burned on refunds, which isn't surprising considering the shit they pump out.

      And, don't attack me if your innocent, I know that some affiliates are unethical, lying, thieving, B*stards

      But, I have lived long enough to always remember this

    Here's my suggestion. Contact the vendors that have products that you want to promote and ask them for a review copy of the product. (many vendors will do this for people that they trust)



    Note: If you are using JVzoo, then you can do this whenever you request to promote a vendors products via the notes form.


    When contacting the vendor...you need to convince them to trust you enough to give you a review copy. To gain their trust, you simply need to tell the truth. Tell them that you have a blog that gets over 10k visitors a month and that you would like to get a review sopy of their product so that you can review it on your blog.


    Be sure to include a link to your blog ( so they can visit it) and be prepared to show proof of the number of visitors that you receive (if they ask for it)

    I would STRONGLY recommend you to add a "Recommendation" section to your website that will promote relevant products to your visitors. Also, If you have a website that is seeing traffic, you should have an email list set up and you could promote your products directly to your customers/visitors in a very intimate manner.

    The highest way to convert and leverage what you already have would be to build an email list from your website, email them with tip and tricks related to your niche with a ton of value and then offer the product. The order should be something like...

    Email 1: Tip
    Email 2: Tip
    Email 3: Tip with an affiliate offer....
    I hope this helps!

    Maybe buy just one product and focus on getting at least a sale? Then you'll at least have a track record. Lots of vendors won't approve you as an affiliate f you haven't made any affiliate sales. Look for those who don't require that first and get sales, in order to create a track record.



    You could ask for review copies of the products you promote. Look for vendors offering them upfront and hop on it fast so you can get one. (Lots of people tend to want review copies-- usually more than are available.)


    If you want a "hack method", post helpful articles on your site, get a link jacker, point people toward the video on You Tube and use the link jacker to drive them toward an affiliate offer :-)

    As others mentioned, add a "Recommendations" section to your site and post review articles for relevant products that your audience is likely to find useful. That would work well as long as the traffic is targeted. Oh, and you should definitely start building an email list moving forward, and use it to drive traffic to your new posts.
