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
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
Currently, the site has ten utilities (some of which are exclusive to us, and cannot be found on any other website. Click a pink headline for more details)
Your own payment button
Affiliate Sales/ Tracking
! IMPORTANT ! Single Sales and Subscriptions
Video Brander (Buttons)
Video Brander (Captions)
WP Thumbnail Checker
New: "Join the party!" (Advanced)
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:
For an affiliate to promote your product:
And for an affiliate using their own campaign
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
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

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 ???
