Digital Selling: Warrior Forum and eBay

Digital Selling: eBay and Warrior Forum

Warrior Forum:

This site is actually a large forum with well over 600,000 registered users, with an average of around 20,000 people inside the forum browsing live at any given time. It’s absolutely free to join this forum, and once you become a member you can post questions, answers and share information with the other members on a variety of topics related to marketing online.

For digital product creators the Warrior Forum can be a literal gold mine when used effectively. What makes the warrior for an excellent place for Digital Selling products is a special section titled “Warrior Special Offers” or as it’s commonly referred to the WSO forum.

In this section members are allowed to post special offers for their products and services to the other members. Clever marketers also use this popular forum to build their emails lists by giving things away free.

While the forum is free to join the cost to post a thread in the WSO section is $40, and once your thread is “live” anyone who visits the WSO area will see your thread in the directory and buy your product if they so choose.

It’s also a good idea to recruit affiliates to sell your products. For this there are two options that are widely used by warrior for members the first one is Warrior Plus. They charge a small fee and integrate seamlessly with your WSO. The second one is using JVzoo as we discussed in lesson one. JVzoo also integrates nicely in the WSO section, by allowing you to set up a backup sales page and recruit affiliates for your special offers.

When it comes to selling on the Warrior Forum special offer board, there is a bit of a learning curve but once you understand how the system works it is an excellent place to generate income very quickly.

eBay:

Selling digital products on eBay is a little bit challenging and somewhat unconventional. However it is still an extremely profitable platform which shouldn’t be ignored. The main problem with selling digital products on eBay is that they only allow physical goods to be sold so you have to be creative when it comes to delivering your content. You can do this by shipping your customers a CD, DVD, print version or thumb drive in the mail.

The main advantage of selling on eBay is that you can tap into their huge database of users and the massive amounts of traffic it receives every day. While you will incur extra expenses like printing and shipping when selling on eBay the markup on digital product is relatively high so the potential for profit is defiantly there.

To make the whole process hands free you can use a print on demand Fulfilment Company like netpub.net, kunaki.com or Amazons createspace.com which will print and drop-ship your product directly to your customers after they’ve made a purchase.

There is a way to avoid the extra printing and shipping costs and still sell on eBay. They provide digital publishers with the option of selling their products in the Everything Else section of the marketplace under the Information Products category as long as they are listed in the classified ad format. This is a viable option however your product will not be listed in the marketplace so you will have to work a little harder to get it noticed.

To find out more about this option you can check out the vase Digital selling policies here:

You also have the option of opening an eBay store. There are several store options to choose from, including a basic store, a featured store or an anchor store. These stores are designed for high turnover of goods and do require a monthly fee, but when utilized properly they can be very profitable.
