How to deliver digital content

Hi guys

I sell a number of ebooks online, mostly using Woocommerce. The whole process, including purchase and content delivery, is handled on my sites. Up until now its been working great, but I want to do two things that Woocommerce isn't very good at:

1. Add some digital content like streaming videos
2. Create an affiliate program (the woocommerce affiliate plugin is really bad)

So my question is: which platform should I use?

I was looking at Infusionsoft, which seems to cover both those bases, but its expensive. I also have a large double opt-in list with Aweber which I don't want to migrate to Infusionsoft, so I wouldn't be able to use any of Infusionsoft's marketing abilities. I would end up paying for both Aweber and Infusionsoft.

Are there any other options besides Infusionsoft? Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers
Van

    if you just want to deliver your content I would use wishlist member...
    it integrates with so many different solutions...

    It also integrates with most autoresponders, so when someone purchases
    one of your digital products they can be added to your respective customer
    list automatically.

    you can also get wishlist to integrate with most shopping carts as well
    so the process can be pretty seamless.

    If you have your own merchant account you could use something like premiumwebcart,
    and it will sync your wishlist, your accepting payments, and adding subscribers to your list
    pretty easily without needing a tech to set it up.

    You might be able to continue using WooCommerce. For my affiliate program I use AffiliateWP. I use it with Easy Digital Downloads, but it apparently integrates with WooCommerce as well. It's quite good, but it's $49.

    Yes, I also recommend sticking to Woocommerce and only looking for a different plugin.

    Thanks guys. I thought Affiliates Pro was the only affiliate program available, but it looks like AffiliateWP is much much better. I'll give it a try!

    You might want to visit ClickBank to see what they have to offer for your venture.

    I am not an expert yet, but they seem to have some great options for you and for your affiliates.

    Best of luck as you try new markets.

      I used to be on Clickbank. Its great if you want the internet to be deluged with spammy articles about your product. Also be prepared for Clickbank affiliates to cannibalize lots of your leads. Not to mention the fact that you need to pay 75% to get any traction.

      Clickbank is great for guys in the third world who are happy to make a few bucks here and there and don't mind how they do it. If you want to make serious money, start building a list and a customer base instead. That's the path I took.
