Why Pay 5% ~ 12.5% Commission
On Every Sale You Make ...

When You Can Pay 0% Commission
(And Get A Lot More "Perks" As Well)

About twelve months ago, I started developing an app. My idea was to promote it on a well known Internet Marketing site. Commission would be charged at 5% per sale

Say it quickly enough, and 5% sounds like a small amount to pay. But ...

With an app costing $50, that's $2.50 per sale

  • If I sold 100 items, I'd be paying the company $250 to list my item
  • Sell 250 items, or higher priced item, and commission gets even worse
  • ** True, you do gain access to their large number of affiliates

That's for one product.
I have multiple products to promote (You do the maths !)

 

Like lots of "digital product delivery" providers online, the company were also tied to PayPal. The reason is that - until now - they have been the only business that can process affiliate payments via their "Mass Pay" system, (now called "PayPal Payouts") But PayPal are not exactly known for their "low prices", and it can take a fair proportion of a vendor's profits to use the system.

For example, the vendor has to pay 2% for every payment they make to affiliates. The affiliate then has to pay 2% to have the funds transferred to their account. And that's apart from the extra percent they add to the Exchange Rate available on that day. (I've recently found a system that costs a fraction of 1% for the entire transaction! See the note below)

Some traders prefer to use Stripe to process their payments. but alas they do not handle Mass Payments to affiliates

** Our system uses another company that is around 17X cheaper than using PayPal. Plus we let you use whatever payment processor you wish

The Alternatives ?

Not wishing to pay 5% on every sale, I did a bit more researching

There are Wordpress plugins available that allow you to set up your own affiliate networks. However, whilst most will record "Click-Thro" and "Sales" - they do not handle refunds. Effectively, the vendor could end up paying affiliates for sales that have already been refunded !! Their logic is that you are paying affiliates to send you sales. If the customer wants a refund, that's the vendor's problem, not the affiliates! Not very clever!

So, unable to come up with any viable alternative...
I DEVELOPED MY OWN SYSTEM



The more I developed it, the more I felt other Internet Marketers might also be interested in avoiding the 5% ~ 12.5% commission per sale, (the worst processor I found charged an incredible 25% per sale !!) They could use what ever payment processor they preferred, and save money when it came to paying affiliates

Plus, having been online for over the 30 years, I've created dozens of individual apps aimed at Internet Marketing, so decided to bundle a few of them together on one website.

ATOMZ had been created
 

You can also view your own stats (click thro, sales and refunds) in a table format that also shows EPC and ROI for each product.

Plus, you can view the stats of each individual affiliate, and see what product they are promoting. Click a link, and those stats are revealed in even more detail as a day-by-day graph showing click thro, sales and refunds for each product of affiliate

You - and your affiliates - can also set up campaigns. For example, suppose you are running an ad in "Andy's Ads" newsletter. You can tag "AA" onto the end of your sale link URL ... and track how many clicks, sales and refunds that campaign created. It will also show your EPC and ROI for that campaign

And talking of links, some websites use long tracking codes. Our code is simple to the extreme! To add a campaign to your own sales page, it's no more complicated than:
http://www.your-sales-page.com?AA

For an affiliate to promote your product:
http://www.your-sales-page.com?a=JNXGJK

And for an affiliate using their own campaign

Never Ending Learning Curve

Let's be honest, marketing online involves a never ending "Learning Curve". There always seems to be a new methodology devised every month

Then again, for "Noobs" there is lots of things they have got to learn about, usually by getting a snippet of information here and there

Oh, there are plenty of digital products and courses you can buy for $97 ~ $997 or more (nothing wrong with that; it's something we advocate). But wouldn't it be nice if - once in a while - some of those 'skill sets' mentioned in the training wer available online, in one resource...

That's where the "Tec-Tocc" site may help

It actually stands for "The Entreprenuer's Club - The Online Course Creator"

The idea is simple. It's where people interested in making money online hang out. There will be articles related to online selling, as well as forums where you can ask your peers anything you might be stuck on, or need advice about

The "Online Course Creator" follows a similar vein, but is aimed at people who want to develop online courses to sell on "Udemy" and other similar websites. (Looking even further into the future, we propose to introduce our own "library" where vendors can sell their courses)

At this point, I must stress that this is what "Tec-Tocc" SETS OUT to achieve! For that to happen, we need people who know more than others to write articles / create videos etc. To get a question answered in the forum, there must be members willing to impart their knowledge

As "ATOMZ" and "TEC-TOCC" are both new sites, it may take a while for this to develop. That said, we think membership will expand rapidly once people start to discover what we offer

 
This is going to be expensive!!

At this point, most marketers would repeat what's on offer, and quote some ridiculous fee to justify their end price. You know the type of thing: "This has a $997 per month value, but it's yours for just $50" Do we honestly believe those "value" prices ??

Or they "hit" you with the 'scarcity' tactic: "We are only selling 250 copies of this software, and will be taken off the market in 48hrs time. So buy now whilst you have the chance" (For any Noobs out there, this is designed to get you to purchase right away as - if you have the chance to leave the site - you may forget to return to the site tomorrow to purchase ... or you may forget about it entirely! Get their money NOW!)

So I'll simply repeat what's on offer, and let you can create your own 'value' for how much such a feature might be worth to you, based on what you might pay elsewhere. Remember, some features are exclusive to ATOMZ

  • Product Directory

  • Your Own Payment Buttons

  • Affiliate Sales / Tracking

  • PDF / Zip Brander

  • Intell-TAF

For a limited period we are allowing non-member publishers the chance to add their goods to our Product Directory FREE OF CHARGE

Quite simply, as this is a new venture, we need to "pad out" the directory with a few products! Click Here for details

 

Think back to the beginning. I said it was unfair paying 5% commission, which meant you might have to pay $250+ commission on a single product. So logic must dictate it must be less than that

Remember, our site can be used for 1 or 101 products that you wish to promote

So how much would you be willing to pay for all these features, and access to the articles and forums? $197 a month? ... $97 a month ... $47 a month ???

PS: Are these apps complicated to use? Having been coding them for 10hours a day, 7 days a week for the last 18 months, I know how to use them inside-out! And whilst I've attempted to make them as simple as possible, they could still seem daunting to someone else. So, rather sign up, then find the apps are too complex for you, Download our instruction guide This allows you to discover what all the buttons and options do without any up front investment on your part.

PPS: I am currently working on a Webinar app. Rather than a simple video, where every "attendee" uses up gigabytes of bandwith to watch the presentation, this will be around 10mb for a one hour webinar Plus, the vendor can make the whole thing animated with "kinetic typography" and changeable backgrounds similar to an explainer video ... but much smaller in size

And this will be included in your membership at no extra cost!

As well as a description, it also displays a product photo

And - dependant on what option you use - will display:

  • Clients: Retail prices / subscription rate
  • Affiliates: Commission rates and link to "creatives"

If you =DO NOT= have a website ...
you can link to our directory directly with your affiliate code
If you =DO= have a website ...
place our directory directly on your site
Obviously, earn commission on all sales.

For a limited period, we are allowing external vendors to add their goods to the directory FREE OF CHARGE

NB: We have systems in place that stop you buying products with your own affilate code

 

We don't force you to use our payment buttons, emblazoned with our logo. You are free to use your own design.

All sales are paid directly to your chosen payment processor, (ie Stripe, Paypal or others)

WE DO NOT CHARGE COMMISSION ON ANY SALES
Yes, that's right 100% FREE OF CHARGE

 

Our product directory will help you find affiliates to promote your goods. They only have to sign up ONCE and that code is used with all vendors

You do not have to go through the process of manually approving affiliates;
All are approved automatically

For both vendors and affiliates, we provide stats. This displays a graph showing how many Click-Thro / Sales / Refunds you have made for a particular product on a particular day

Both vendors and affiliates can also set up their own "campaigns", (ie a code to inform you of where those ads are being run etc). Again, all campaigns can be shown in graph format so you know how many clicks / sales / refunds you are getting for a product on a particular day

And for the slightly more advanced, we can also show you the ROI and CPC for each product / campaign

Once a month, you simply download a "Mass Pay" file that says how much each affiliate has earned. Upload that to another website, press a button, and they will automatically transfer the money from your bank account to the recipient. Even if they do not have an account registered, the website will email the affiliate to say they have funds awaiting transfer

Oh, and we don't use any of this "sale must be made in 30 days / 60 days / 90 days" cookie nonsense! Once an affiliate sends a person to your site, they are tagged indefinately, even if a person returns to the site in six months time.

Or at least, the last affiliate to send someone to your site has their detailed stored. So if "Andy" sends someone to your site ... and then a week later "Brian" sends someone ... and the person orders in three month's time, it's "Brian" who earns the commission

 

Our app can track:
"Buy Now" buttons (Single Sales) and
Single Level Subscriptions (ie trial and/or main subscription)

However, it CANNOT track Multi Level Subscriptions (ie Bronze / Silver / Gold access levels etc) unless each level returns to its own "Thank You" page. If the "Thank You" page is created by server software for each level ("dynamically generated") it will not work

 

Similar to our customer PDF brander shown below, this allows your affiliates to add their own link to a document. The idea is they will give the publication away to their friends and associates ... and of course, their affiliate link is shown across the bottom of each page

You don't even have to write the give away publication youreself; you might find a suitable booklet available in the Public Domain

 

As any vendor with a popular product will know, there are "pirates" out there that will pass your work onto others. This option acts as a "deterrent", although it does not offer 100% security of your work

When you make a sale, people usually get returned to a "Thank You" page where they can access their purchase. We take it a stage further

You direct them to a page that asks them to enter their email address. We then send a code to that address, (to prove that the account is genuine, and not a ficticious email) They then return to the site, enter that code, and gain access to the guide. Here's where it gets interesting:

We print their email address across the bottom of every page!

Optionally, we can even add a "Legal Warning" page to the end of the guide to the effect of

    "If you have obtained this guide from another vendor, and it is NOT your email address across the bottom of the page, please report the person who sold the guide to {your_admin@email.address}"

Most vendors will only have one PDF manual per sale to be branded ...
but you can upload a zip file containing FIVE OR MORE PDF's, and we will brand five of the PDF's with the customer's details (The zip file can also include videos, text files etc, and they will remain within the zip file that the client downloads)

Note: The customer WILL NOT be added to any mailing list. We request their email details purely for branding purposes. Should the email not arrive in a reasonable amount of time, they can return to the site to request that the email code is sent again.

Their email is also heavily encoded on our server.

Each download request is given a unique number on our server. And your product is also stored in a unique numbered folder. So the chance of a "hacker" locating your product / client's download is made more difficult!

 

With most video players, you have a row of buttons across the bottom to play / pause, scrub through or view video full screen. But an internet marketer needs more. They need buttons that people can click that might offer to add them to a mailing list ... or subscribe them to a YouTube channel ... or even a "Buy Now" button.

This simple utility allows you to display buttons that pop up on top of your video at any time you choose. (They can also be removed from the screen to reappear at a later time)

Plus, the buttons can appear in any of NINE positions, ie left, center or right columns, plus top, middle or bottom row. You can also 'fine tune' the buttons should you wish to move them left/right or up/down a little

Plus, you can also make the video available to affiliates so that when a viewer clicks a button, that affiliate earns the commission

Simple to use, and just two lines of code on your website!

We only supply a small number of buttons, so again, you are able to design your own buttons, (or source online) and upload to your account

 

The above video brander requires that you / the affiliate has a website into which code can be embedded. As such, it DOES NOT upload to "YouTube", "Vimeo", "Facebook" etc. So this alternative app creates a 'stand alone' video,

As the vendor, you prepare the video offline. The app will generate some code. Upload the code to our website, and video to "DropBox" or similar

Your affiliate then downloads the second part of our app. They grab your "master" video from "Dropbox" or similar online storage site, and enters their affiliate code. In a few minutes, they have a copy of your video, branded with their affiliate code as visible text, (similar to a closed-caption / subtitle) They can distribute that video how ever they wish

Note: Whilst the "Video Brander (Buttons)" displays buttons a viewer can click on, this app simple adds the affiliate's code to the video. The viewer will then need to enter that code into their browser window manually. The affiliate link limited to 40 letters

 

Also known as a "URL shortener" , such as "youtu.be" and "goo.gl" (discontinued)

Simply enter your long URL, and get a short code back.

For example:
"https://my-site.com/blog/technology_is_wonderful.html"
could be shorted to "https://r.atomz.club?FE2367:9
Handy for affiliates who wish to place a long link URL on their video

Note: The start of YOUR reduced size URL (such as "FE2367" above)
will always remain the same. Only the number at the end changes

 

Quite often, a vendor will "tempt" a customer with a low priced initial offer. Then, to maximise sales, they might offer a "One Time Offer" or upsell. If the customer doesn't "bite", they might offer a downsell to that OTO

As you might imagine, keeping track of this upsell linking to that downsell, which links to this upsell and another downsell can get confusing. (You could of course also have upsell / upsell / upsell products such as $19.95, $30.95, $49.75 per month

This is a simple form, laid out as a sideways running multi-level pyramid. You simply enter your intial product name, then the name of the upsell product that it links to, and the name of any downsell product it links to across up to five levels

Once it is PLANNED, you modify each sales page to include the Buy Now buttons that link to products XYZ, (or a "No, thanks I don't want this offer" link to a downsell) Once uploaded, you can tick a box on the form to remind yourself that you've completed that stage

Please remember: This DOES NOT physically set up your funnel. It is only a "printout" to show you which product should link to another

 

BANNER EXCHANGES ??!! (Only people who have been online a number of years will remember them!) But as you'd expect, ours is a little different

In days gone by, you would place code on your website to display a
468px x 60px banner. For every 5 - 10 banners you displayed on your site, your banner would be displayed ONCE on someone elses site. A somewhat biased ratio

Our system works on a much fairer 1:1 basis. If a banner is shown on your site, your banner will be shown on someone else's site. What's more, whilst our system CAN use the 468 x 60 banner, we allow you to use virtually any banner size you wish that best suits your site

Plus, we have another unique twist. It helps grow your mailing list

Again, with the old exchanges, when someone clicked a banner, they were taken directly to the other site. With our system, we pop up a window where you tell the viewer more about your mailing list, and ask if they would like to subscribe. (Since they've already decided to click on a banner, there is a fair chance they are interested in that subject matter)

If they DO decide to subscribe
they complete the subcription form, and are then redirected to site.

If they DO NOT subscribe
They go directly to the site as before

Whether they subsscribe or not, we track their stats so that the admin screen will tell you how many times the banner has been viewed, plus how many subscribed, and how many went direct to site. You can download the stats for every month if you wish

 

The full name of this app is "Intelligent Tell-A-Friend"

Quite simply, you set this up such that friends and contacts can tell your friends about your product. The app tracks all click-thro' and sales. If they send (say) 100 visitors to your site, you reward them with a gift. You could then suggest they send 250 people to your site, and gain another gift. So on and so on

Of course, the same principle applies to sales

Once set up, you don't have to do a thing! The app will automatically send an email to a user once they hit the specific target level you have set

Working in conjuction with "Intelli-TAF", or as a stand alone utility, this allows you to "lock" pages. The contents will not be accessable unless a person enters a specific password, (and each user is assigned a unique code)

You can also set the access to expire after a few minutes, or a few days

If a "pirate" passes their log in passcode to another person, the latter will not be able to gain access as all passwords are "one time use" only. Once the preset time has expired, the page will lock down again. Even if they enter their existing password again, they will not gain access

Some Wordpress themes have sliders across the top of the page, which use rectangular images. Other pages on the side might use that same image ... but in a different "aspect ratio" The result is the larger image gets cropped, and the smaller icon looks weird!

This app allows you to see WHERE the crop will occur, and lets you redesign your images such that the important details remain within the cropped areas, whilst you "pad" the larger image with extra data that you know will only show when the image is displayed in the scroller.

NB: The theme we chose to use for "Tec-Tocc" has three icon image sizes, and using this utility we were able to design a single image that looks right in all three sizes

I'm sure your inbox has at times been filled by everyone and their brother actively promoting a product on Launch Day. The vendor will then take that product down after 7 - 10 days, so people will buy it in case they miss out on a bargain!

Have you ever wondered how these people know in advance when a product is being released? More to the point, would YOU like to have advanced warning of when a product is being released so you can promote it to YOUR contacts? That's the idea behind our "Join The Party" app

Now our Product Directory, (which can be viewed by non-members) shows up to five random products that have been released today or during the last seven days It's not really "designed" to inform people about "pre-launch" products

That's where "Join The Party! (Advanced)" comes into play. The Members only app tells you about products that are being released IN THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS This gives you time to get your own marketing / bonuses in place before the actual launch day ... just as the "Big Boys" do!

This advanced version of "Join The Party!" is shown on within the ATOMZ app website, AND within the members only membership site

If you are a publisher who would like to add their pre-launch product to the "Join the Party!" list =IT'S FREE=
then Contact Me, ideally 10 ~ 14 days before the launch
