The PayPal Goodbye Wrap Up!

Here we go… The final update on what I’ve been calling “The PayPal Issue”.

I am officially away from PayPal as my payment processor. Not because my account was shut down. I still (at this time) have a PayPal account, but I’m choosing to walk away from them before they choose to walk away from ME!

Side Note: If you’ve missed what’s going on see my Facebook posts on the issues at…

I have a blog post where I sum these up at http://liztomey.com/blog/saying-goodbye-to-paypal

Okay on to the goods here…

I started this journey in April of 2019 and it’s now the middle of August 2019. Almost 4 months of research, reaching out to people, back and forths with merchant accounts, and the list goes on and on.

I kept hitting “walls” and I didn’t stop until I got through them. That’s how you have to be with EVERYTHING when it comes to creating an online business. You do everything you can to get through anything that tries to stop you from reaching your goals.

That’s not what this is about though so I’ll save my “Tony Robbins speech” for another day. 😉

This post is to help those of you who are looking to get away from PayPal and who are using JV Zoo and/or WarriorPlus as a vendor or as an affiliate.

First off, you’ve got to look at this from two different sides.

If you’re an affiliate and you want to get away from PayPal it’s pretty simple. A few settings and you’re done.

If you’re a vendor though there are a few things you need to do.

I want to talk about these things separately in this post to help your brain keep them separate. If not you’ll get super confused. I’m both an affiliate and a vendor and my biggest problem I had with understanding all of this was keeping those two things separate.

So let’s start with…

Getting Away From PayPal As An Affiliate Marketer On JVZoo and/or WarriorPlus

This was a WAY easier process for me compared to what I thought it would be.

With JVZoo you need to make sure you have a JV Zoo Pay account setup properly. When you want to promote a product make sure that the vendor is using JV Zoo Pay to pay you your commissions. This will be listed on the Affiliate Details Page where you get your affiliate link.

When you promote the product and make sales all commissions instantly go to your JV Zoo Pay account. You can then withdraw your commissions into your bank account or Payoneer account. You can also withdraw into your PayPal account, but the whole point of this is to get AWAY from PayPal. 🙂

 

I have my JV Zoo Pay account setup so that when I have $500 in commissions they are automatically deposited into my bank account.

A little note here… Some vendors use Stripe to process their payments on JV Zoo. They have to pay you manually. This will be noted on the Affiliate Details Page too. (See the second circle above.) I ONLY promote vendors I personally know if they are going this route. I don’t like having to figure out who owes me money with affiliate programs. That’s why my main rule with promoting something on JV Zoo is that if they aren’t paying via JV Zoo Pay I’m not promoting their product.

Here’s the short of it… The only way you can get your commissions into your JV Zoo Pay account is if the vendor processes payments via PayPal or Bluesnap (which is a merchant account). You then withdraw your commissions in your chosen way. To your bank account or Payoneer account.

Now with Warrior Plus it’s simply going in and changing a setting in your account so everything is sent to your Warrior Plus Wallet. Then you can withdraw into your bank account. Again you can also withdraw into your PayPal account, but uh… We’re getting away from PayPal here. 🙂

The setting for this is hard to find…

Upper right hand corner from the drop down menu select My Account, then Merchant Accounts, then go to Settings and turn ON Force Wallet (Affiliate/Partner).

I can withdraw my available affiliate commissions from my Warrior Plus Wallet into my bank account.

So that has me totally away from PayPal being an affiliate on Warrior Plus and JV Zoo.

Now for those of you who are vendors. Hang on to your hats! 🙂

Getting Away From PayPal As A Vendor On JVZoo and/or WarriorPlus

 

Again, we will start with JV Zoo.

Your options with JV Zoo are to get a merchant account with Bluesnap or Stripe in order to get away from PayPal.

Stripe doesn’t work with JV Zoo Pay though so you have to manually pay your affiliates. I’m not willing to do that. I want to automatically pay my affiliates.

So, I am using Bluesnap so commissions are automatically put into the JV Zoo Pay accounts of my affiliates.  I really wish I could use Stripe over here. I DO like it better than Bluesnap. I get my money quicker and the reporting is better.

When the customer buys via a JVZoo button, Bluesnap and JVZoo work together (with some unicorn magic or technology or whatever) and put the affiliate’s commission into THEIR JVZoo Pay account, gives JVZoo their fees, and leaves my profits in my Bluesnap account.

This is all done automatically…

Note: See JVZoo’s documentation on selling on their platform at https://jvzoo.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/200334067-Sellers

No money comes into my PayPal account. It’s all processed by Bluesnap and they automatically deposit my profits into my bank account.

Once you have your Bluesnap account setup and your JV Zoo Pay account then when you setup a product you simply select Bluesnap to process your payments and to pay affiliates with JV Zoo Pay.

So make sure that you get the accounts setup before setting up your product. The initial account setups is what takes the most time. Once you have them setup you just select what you want to use to process payments when you create products moving forward.

On the vendor side of Warrior Plus…

They only allow you to process payments through PayPal or Stripe. Bluesnap isn’t an option over there.

Over there I’m processing payments with Stripe and affiliate commissions are paid into the affiliates Warrior Plus Wallet. Then they can withdraw in their chosen way.

Like with JV Zoo you have to get your accounts setup. I had to setup my Stripe account in there, and then when I setup the product I have to select that I’m processing via Stripe.

So when a customer purchases through a Warrior Plus button Stripe and Warrior Plus work together (again with unicorn magic I think) and aput the affiliate’s commission into THEIR Warrior Plus Wallet, gives Warrior Plus their fees, and leaves my profits in my Stripe account.

Stripe deposits my profits into my bank account daily.

And again… This is all done automatically.

Note: See Warrior Plus’s documentation on selling on their platform at https://help.warriorplus.com/en/collections/170745-selling-on-warriorplus

The big take away here with BOTH of these is that you have to get your “processing” accounts setup first, and then when you setup your product to get your buy buttons is when you select what you use to process payments and pay affiliate commissions.

The Wrap Up

 

I have now done FOUR launches using BOTH JVZoo and WarriorPlus and many have asked me which one I prefer.

Warrior Plus or JVZoo?

I’ve thought long and hard about what I would say here, and even if I would even say anything at all.

Why?

Well it goes back to the old saying…

“You don’t poo where you eat.”

I no longer “eat” at PayPal so I’ll “poo” all over them. I wont however speak ill of either JV Zoo or Warrior Plus because I “eat” at both of these places. Both have their pros and cons.

Let me say that one more time…

Both. Have. Their. Pros. And. Cons.

Like I hate how “clunky” and confusing WarriorPlus can be.

I also hate that I can’t easily tell who pays how and what without some digging on JV Zoo.

I do have a favorite and it’s JVZoo.

There are many reasons and some of those reasons I wont discuss. 😉

Both have their pros/cons (as I said), but what makes me say JVZoo is hands down the best is…

1. I personally know the CEO of JVZoo. Laura Cassleman!

NEVER has a CEO ever reached out to me personally to help me with my business. Laura cares about her JVZoo affiliates and it shows. Not only did she go to battle for me with issues with merchant accounts, but has done so for others. Laura is a shining example of what a true CEO is. I can’t thank her enough for her help through all of this.

2. The Support team is phenomenal.

I also know several people from the support team personally. 🙂

JVZoo has a support desk and a Facebook group. I think I used the support desk a very long time ago, but I always use the Facebook group and have an answer within 24 hours to my endless questions. Usually in MOMENTS! That’s important when you’re trying to get a product launched. I need answers and solutions NOW and I get them.

3. It’s easier to use.

As a vendor the JV Zoo system is easier to use in my opinion.

Once you have your merchant account and you’ve gone through all the settings to get it hooked up, using JVZoo to get your funnel setup is easier to use than Warrior Plus. Maybe that’s because I’ve used them for so many years and just get their system or maybe it’s because it is in fact just easier to use. *shrugs*

What I do like about Warrior Plus BETTER though is that I can use Stripe over there and it automatically pays my affiliates over there into their wallets. I like Stripe better than Bluesnap. From the ease of using it to the reports to them paying out faster than Bluesnap. I just like Stripe better.

So there you go… That’s how I’ve gotten away from using PayPal as an affiliate and a vendor on both JVZoo and WarriorPlus.

It’s been a heck of a journey, but I’m really liking running my business without the fear of losing my PayPal account.

Putting all your eggs in one basket is a HORRIBLE idea. I should have NEVER had only one way to accept payments, and I'll never do that again.Click To Tweet

I currently have 4 ways to take payments. PayPal (I refuse to use that one though) , Bluesnap, Stripe, and Cash App.

Cash App? What, Liz? 

I’ll be talking about that one in the future. 😉

My next one I’m looking to use is ClickBank, but that probably wont happen until early 2020, so stay tuned.

Until then… Thoughts? Opinions? Questions? Feedback? Let me know in the comments below…

Resale Rights

The Ugly Truth About Resale Rights – Part I

As information marketers we continually keep buying products with resale rights, and wonder why they don’t make us any money. If you know what products to look for then there is no reason why you shouldn’t be making money with resale rights products.

They are great for list building purposes, back end sales, product packages, and many more profitable ventures, but there are down sides to resale rights products, and if you don’t know what you are doing, you will lose money!

This is Part I of a series of articles I will be writing to help people understand the truth behind making money with resale rights. Today I will be discussing Ugly Truth #1 – Low Quality Resale Rights

By doing a search on any search engine you’ll find thousands of offers for different resale rights products and/or packages. The only problem is that most of these products have been around forever. You can’t give them away much less make money from them.

When buying products with resale rights, there are a few things you need to look for as far as the quality of the products.

I’ve created a short check list you should look at each time you go to buy a product with resale rights.

1. When was the product published?

If the product is over a year old, I usually wont buy it. Many things change within a year, and I only want to provide up to date information to my customers. So before you buy, ask how old the product is.

2. I do a search for the product on the main search engines to see how much competition there is for the product.

If 20,000 other people are selling the same resale rights product as you, then how are you going to be different from them with the same product? There are millions of people online, but you still have to stand out from the crowd. Don’t buy resale rights products that everyone and their brother is trying to sell.

3. Does the product come with a marketing package?

When I buy a resale rights product I usually wont buy it unless it comes with graphics, and a ready to go sales letter that I can edit. I do make changes here, and there, but to save me time to get me quickly profiting with a product, I want a sales letter that’s ready to go. If this isn’t stated in the sales copy for the product, ask the owner of the product if a marketing package comes with the product. If not, then I would look else where.

4. Can the product help your customer in some way?

We all want to make more money, save time, and solve our problems. Make sure that the resale rights product can help your customers in some way. We all like to make money, but it all starts with making a customer happy. Be sure that you are helping them!

5. The price of the product.

It is easy to understand why there are different prices for different brands of a physical product. The price tag can easily determine the quality and contents of the product. Information products are no different! To make money with resale rights products, you have to spend a little money. Don’t buy a product just because it’s cheap. Usually the more expensive resale rights products sell better because there is less competition. Most people wont spend money to make money.

If you had to pay $197 for a product that only 400 other people were selling and could make $3000 from that one product, why would you pay $20 for a product that 4,000 people are selling and you may only make your investment back?

These are the top five things you need to be watching for when it comes to the quality of a resale rights product. You are sure to make more money off of resale rights products that provide good information, that doesn’t have a lot of competition, and that can help your customer. Use your head and follow this advice and you should do well with profiting with resale rights!

Resale Rights

6 Ways To Instantly Make Money With Resell Rights Products

Have you tried everything under the sun to make money?

Are you just getting into the whole “make money thing”?

No matter where you are with trying to make money online, the quickest and easiest way to start profiting is by buying rights to digital products.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the terms “product rights” and “digital products”, let me give you a little crash course here.

Digital products are ebooks, software, videos, and the like. These are simply products that can be downloaded after purchase. No waiting for anything to be shipped to you. Make your payment and download it. Very simple, right?

Now some products you can actually purchase rights to. This means you buy the product, and you also have the right to sell that product and keep 100% of the profits.

Yes seriously… I’m not joking!

You can literally find ready to go products, that you can sell, and keep all the money on. At the end of this article I’ll share with you my secret place for getting my hands on these products, but for now, let’s talk about the different ways that you can make money with digital products that you buy the rights to.

By having a load of digital products that you have resell rights to, your options are virtually unlimited in the ways you can cash in with them.

Here’s 6 ways off that top of my head right now, that I have personally used to profit!

Existing ClientsAlready have clients in your business? Simply find a resell rights product that would interest them, and send them the link to it. I have done this over and over again and watch $2000-$3000 roll into my PayPal account

Build A Website – Pick a large niche. For instance dog training. Find several resell rights products related to dog training, and you can sell them each from one website. You could become the Amazon.com for digital dog training products. Once you get one up, find another niche and repeat. That’ll give you TWO streams of income.

Create A New Product – When you find resell rights products online make sure to categorize them when you download them. Later you can come back to your categories, and find batches of products that you can bundle together and make an entirely different and new product.

Build A List Of Buyers – Many times you can give giveaway rights to resell rights products. When you do, give them away to people in exchange for their email address. It’ll create a list of prospects for you that you can market to over and over again!

Bonuses For ProductsHave existing products you sell online? Why not add some serious value and shoot up your sales conversions by offering resell rights products you have bought as bonuses to your product? I have done this time and time again, and some people sometimes buy my initial product just to get the bonuses. This is VERY powerful.

Bonuses For Affiliate SalesWant to make money promoting other people’s product? It’s a great plan, but what about all the other people doing the same thing? You can crush your competition by offering bonuses to those who purchase products through your link. This is a sure fire way to boost your affiliate commissions.

I hope these tactics have sparked some ideas in your head. Having the rights to sell digital products truly is the quickest and easiest way to start making money online right now! To get started, find some digital products that you can buy the rights to. Come back to this article, and pick one tactic you want to use, and get to work. Soon you’ll be making your first money online!

Today we’re going to wrap things up by talking about what you need to be doing each day to keep your business running.

Now there are so many different types of online businesses that you can run, so this is going to be different for everyone, but here’s what most people will be doing.

Some of things you will do daily, some weekly, some monthly. Is what I recommend that you do is write down everything you need to do and then input it into a calendar.

I have Google Calendar setup for this, and have it set to email me every morning at 5am with my “to dos” for the day. I get an email every day and know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing, and this keeps me super focused and on track!

Alright so let’s take a look at the typical stuff and this is in no particular order.

Customer support – It doesn’t matter if you’re selling your own products, selling products as an affiliate, or just running a content site you monetize with ads. There are real people coming through your business. If you’re not selling your own products you will have less customer support than someone who is, but you still need to make sure that your audience has a way to contact you, and that you are responding back to them.

Learning – You can never stop learning. Either you’re learning about new marketing tactics and strategies you can use in your business, how to make more money in your business, other ways to make money, and the list goes on and on, but you need to have dedicated time to learning more about running your business.

Content creation – If you have an online business it’s in constant need of content. Your content hub for your business foundation always needs content, if you’re using social media to get traffic then your social media sites always need content, if email is part of your online business then you need content for that, and the list goes on and on.

Money makers – Every day my first thought in my business is what is going to make me money today? What can I add to my business to make more money? Finding a product to promote as an affiliate. Working on creating a product to sell. Creating a marketing campaign. There are so many things you can be doing, but every day I’m working on something that makes me money either right this moment or in the future. You need to be working on this daily too.

Traffic – Like we talked yesterday. When you stop working on getting traffic into your business, the traffic stops, and you don’t make money. Every single day you need to be working on traffic. I typically split my working time in half. Half of the time I have to work I spend on traffic generation. The other half is devoted to everything else.

Now as I said… Depending on your business will depend on what of these things you’ll do and how much you will do of them. There are many many many other things too, but you get the idea here.

So back to my advice above…

Spend a week running your business, as you do things, note them. Then take those notes and input everything into a calendar so you have something to look at each day and KNOW what you’re supposed to be doing.

Okay… That wraps up this series!

We’ve covered a ton of information, and I hope you’re putting it to use.

If you’d like to see a complete online business built from scratch, and how all of these things work together, I highly recommend that you grab a seat in the Get An Online Business Workshop.

Building An Online Business

The Truth About Traffic

If you’ve been following along lately, I’ve returned back to the basics because I realized that many many many MANY of my readers are struggling when it comes to creating an online business.

For those of you that are killing it. Congrats! We’re going to get back to our “regularly scheduled” program soon, but THIS series is all about the basics.

So far I’ve covered…

1. Finding a niche that you love and that’s actually profitable.

2. Creating a business foundation for your chosen niche.

3. Monetizing your business.

Now today I want to talk about traffic.

Once you have the first three things in place then you’re ready for traffic.

Or are you?

So the first lesson I want to give you in traffic is that you need to be ready for it.

Is the page your sending traffic to ready for traffic?

Does it look good? Is it easy to navigate? Does it have a strong call to action?

Whatever it is that you’re sending traffic to (be it a squeeze page, a sales page, a blog post, etc) needs to have ONE job and that job needs to be clearly stated.

For example if you’re sending traffic to a squeeze page. You need to make sure you’ve got a good offer there that people will actually WANT, and copy that makes them want to get it right NOW, and an easy way for them to get it.

So the first step in getting traffic is making sure whatever you’re driving traffic to is READY and will actually work for you.

Why would you want to go through the effort of driving a bunch of traffic if what you have isn’t going to get you the results you need!

Now the next step is deciding what route you want to go with getting the traffic.

This is where most people melt down and try EVERYTHING.

DO NOT do that.

Is what you need to do is understand there are basically three ways to get traffic.

1. You can buy it.

You can pay for ads on social networks, you can buy advertising space on sites that offer it in your niche, and the list goes on and on.

If you KNOW that what you have gets results (meaning people buy from you, or optin to your list, or whatever result you want) then this is a great option because you will be able to recoup your investment and then some.

However if you don’t KNOW that what you have gets results then you’re going to spend A LOT of money getting it all figured out.

My rule of thumb with paid advertising is that I wont use it unless I KNOW I have something that will get results.

2. You can borrow it.

When I say borrow I mean use the traffic that others can send you. This is where you’ll get affiliates to send you traffic and you pay them a percentage of your profits, or pay them for actions their people take. There’s a lot of ways to do this, but you need a product and an affiliate program.

3. You can mine it.

This is where most other traffic tactics live. This is where you are doing things to get the traffic. You’re “mining” it. You’re digging for it. Tactics like blogging, social marketing, guest blogging, SEO, YouTube marketing, and the list goes on and on and on and on.

And mining it is where 85% of you will be at.

Now the last thing when it comes to driving traffic…

No matter HOW you decide you’re going to get it you need to make sure that you’re doing SOMETHING to get traffic every single day.

If you’re using paid advertising you need to make sure that your ads are working (stat checking), you need to be testing other ads against your ads to get them working better, you need too be looking for more places to advertise, etc.

If you’re running an affiliate program you want to be working on reaching out to affiliates, creating new promotional tools, etc.

If you’re mining it well that’s hard to say because there’s about a million different ways to mine it. 🙂

But you get the idea here. You need to be doing something each and every day no matter how you’re driving traffic.

Okay so let’s wrap up our talk on traffic here.

When it comes to getting traffic you need to…

1. Make sure you have something that is ready for it.

2. Know how you’re going to get it

3. Never stop getting it. When you stop driving traffic you stop getting results. PLAIN AND SIMPLE!

Need more help with getting traffic? Then I highly recommend you check out the Get An Online Business Workshop. Everything I just went over with you is covered WAY more in-depth in that workshop PLUS everything else we’ve covered over the last several days.

You can grab your seat at https://learningim.com/get-an-online-business-workshop-wp

Okay that’s it for today. Tomorrow we’re going to wrap this all up and I’m going to tell you what you need to be doing each day to run your online business.

Talk soon!

Building An Online Business

Turning On The Money In Your Business

And we’re back… This is the third installment in a series of five blog posts I’m doing all talking about building an online business in a niche that you love and that actually makes you money.

I’m talking to those of you who don’t have an online business setup yet and/or who have failed at getting one setup.

In the first installment in this series I talked about finding a niche that you LOVE. You can see that post at http://liztomey.com/blog/do-you-love-your-niche

In the second installment in this series we talked about building a business foundation which is VITAL to do once you have your perfect profitable niche picked out. If you missed that post you can see it at http://liztomey.com/blog/the-biz-foundation-method

Now once you have that perfect profitable niche AND a business foundation set up then you’re going to move on to monetization and that’s what we’re going to be talking about in this post.

Show me the money!

So first things first… Depending on what your niche is will depend on how you’re going to monetize it. You can also do “monetization stacks” where you use multiple monetization methods.

For example… In my Internet marketing business where I help people build and marketing online businesses, I sell my own digital products, but I also selling coaching, make money as an affiliate marketer, sell services, and have even sold physical products (a tshirt).

That’s monetization stacking.

So let’s say you’re in the weight loss niche. This is a niche I’m going into and letting my attendees of the Get An Online Business Workshop watch me develop. I have created my business foundation in it and will be monetizing it by…

1. Creating my own digital products. (Journals and trackers and stuff like that. No ebooks or courses. I want to give people tools not teach in this niche like I do IM.)

2. Physical products. (Creating branded supplements, powders, etc., physical journals and trackers)

3. An mobile app. (Obviously not sharing the details there. 😉 )

4. Affiliate links

There are so many different ways you can monetize your business once you have a business foundation setup.

Here’s a short list…

1. Digital products you create. (Ebooks, courses, software, app, etc.)

2. Physical products. (The list is never ending here. 🙂 )

3. Products your an affiliate for. (Again the list is never ending here and you can promote physical and/or digital products)

4. Ads (You can sell advertising on your site, emails to your list, put PPC ads on your site, and so much more.)

Now there are tons of sub categories for each of those things, but those are basically your options.

And as I said you can use one or all or any number of them in between that you want.

You simply need to research what people in your niche want and give it to them!

Whether you develop the products yourself, pay others to develop them for you, and promote products as an affiliate, you still need to find what your people want, and then figure out how to give it to them.

Okay so we’ve gone through the first three steps here…

1. Find your perfect profitable niche

2. Build your business foundation

3. Decide how you’re going to monetize it and DO it.

The next thing we’re going to talk about is…

TRAFFIC!

Once you have your niche, you’ve built your business foundation, and you’ve gotten everything monetized you need to turn on the traffic, and that’s what we’re going to be talking about in the next installment of this series.

Building An Online Business

The Biz Foundation Method!

If you haven’t heard yet (I’ve been going on and on about it) I just released a brand new workshop to help those of you who haven’t created an online business yet.

OR

You’ve attempted and just can’t get anything to work. 🙁

It’s called the Get An Online Business Workshop and you’ve only got a few more days to jump in on this so make sure you grab your seat now if you want to learn how to create an online business that you’ll love AND actually make-money with!

https://www.LearningIM.com/get-an-online-business-workshop-wp

On Day 2 of the workshop I’m going to be showing you how to create a business foundation for the niche that you decide upon.

Don’t worry I teach how to pick a niche on Day 1. 🙂

Here’s the thing…

If you don’t have a business foundation, you’re done before you even get started.

Your business foundation consists of two things…

1. A page to build your list/audience – This doesn’t need to be hard. People think you’ve got to create some amazing offer. You DO NOT! I have a super simple way to get people to jump on your list.

2. A content hub – YES! You need content, but quality wins over quantity. A simple blog will allow you to house your content for a multitude of purposes, but all lead to you building your list with it.

That’s it!

That’s a complete business foundation.

Now of course there are strategies you must use to do all of this right, but that’s ALL you need to get started. Stop making this so hard!

And if you want to learn how I do it, then I highly recommend you grab a seat in my the Get An Online Business Workshop and learn how to setup your business foundation.

Like I said… You’ve only got a few more days to grab your spot before the price goes WAY up, so grab your seat at https://www.LearningIM.com/get-an-online-business-workshop-wp

Okay so far we’ve talked about picking your niche (I cover that on Day 1 of this workshop) and now building your business foundation (I cover that on Day 2 of this workshop). Tomorrow we’re going to talk about monetizing everything and what your options are.

Talk soon!
