Integrate Paypal With AWeber
Ideally, you should build up a list of your customers after they have bought your products so that you can market to your paying customers in the future. The buyer list is extremely valuable comparing to the freebie list and it is proven to be a lot of responsive. Therefore if you are serious about your business, it is essential to build up a list of your customers.
The other way is to setup an opt in form in your download page and ask your customer to sign up to receive lifetime update. You need to be aware that not all customers will sign up so you will definitely lose some of them.
An easy way is to use the existing affiliate platform like JVZOO, WarriorPlus or Clickbank. JVZOO and Warriorplus will have Paypal integration built in to their system so you don’t need to worry any detail . All you do is to sign up and list your product with either of them.
The greatest advantage using these affiliate platform is to attract affiliates to promote for you. You can set the commission you are willing to pay them when they make a sale. So, you can leverage the power from others instead of doing all the work yourself. Warriorplus costs $19 for each product and it is widely used in Warrior Special Offer (WSO). JVZOO is currently free and also very popular in WSO and typical sales page hosted on external websites. In terms of the number of affiliates, WarriorPlus is still the preferred choice among these 2.
Clickbank, is still the most popular affiliate platform. However, it costs $50 to list your product there. Though Clickbank does not integrate with Paypal automatically, the payment system is still the best because apart from Paypal, people can use credit card to pay the bill directly. In order to build a buyer list, you can easily create a squeeze page to force your customers to opt in to access the products after they pay for the products.
There are pros and cons for each affiliate platform. For make money online niche, either of these platform will be fine. For other niche, I will strongly recommend Clickbank because it is still the most popular platform. For WSO, either JVZOO or WarriorPlus will be fine.
The Power of Affiliate Platform
Apart from a lot more function / features built in to process the payment and manage your affiliates, the biggest advantage of tapping these affiliate platform is to attract affiliates to promote for your product. If you can prove to them your product is of quality and converts well, together with a tons of useful tools such as banners, articles, emails, keywords, etc…for affiliates, you will certainly attract a lot of people to promote for your products, which will save you a lot of time to drive traffic alone and you will generate sales a lot faster.
