JVzoo Review

JvZoo is one of the top Affiliate Networks.  If you are unfamiliar with the concept, Affiliate Networks are for Merchants to upload Products for sale and allow Affiliates to Promote them for a Commission.  These commissions are typically very generous reaching often 50% 70% even 100% on the Front End offers.

But a network like this also includes reporting tools, link tracking, and affiliate promotion tools, to help promotors and publishers make money with the various products in the network.

People certainly check out your Payment Gateway and will make a decision on how comfortable they feel moving forward with the Transaction.

We want to give them full confidence in their investment.

JvZoo was Founded in 2011.

But some guy must have made a typo and placed 2001 in his review instead.

Then I came to another review that just copied his 2001 date as official when he could have just done a quick Google search or just visit the website. Oops.

That is the Internet sometimes.  But also there is Gold if we dig enough.

I can remember having my first sale ever over at Warrior Forum WSO Marketplace. 

Back then WarriorPlus was not just the biggest kid on the block it was the only kid on the block.

But then came JvZoo.

You could tell these guys had meetings…not just a few either, but many meetings on how they were going to crush what already existed in every way possible.

My friend Mike Lantz over at WarriorPlus must have felt like a caveman at that time compared to all the features JvZoo was offering….on his turf.  He did evolve…but it took some time.  

And in that time….JvZoo became a key player in the game.

Clickbank was also at that time exhausting with mega launches from a network of the same people with insane promises of wealth.

But my first JVzoo experience was this…

I made thousands and thousands of dollars with WarriorPlus up until then and you know the saying….if it is not broke don’t fix it.

But I also evolved.

My first experience with JvZoo was not a great one.  I created a Product but I did not have a list.  That piece would prove critical in the launch process.

When you launch with a list of subscribers that trust you and you have already gotten them excited about your new offering and they are waiting with credit cards in hand on launch day because you have special incentives and bonuses waiting for them that creates momentum.  

That momentum is a magnet for additional affiliates to jump aboard for the profit ride.  That creates a successful launch.

JvZoo was a platform at the time where as a vendor you would be approving affiliates all day long every day and many you could see they have sold hundreds and even thousands of products for other vendors. 

But they will all be M.I.A. on your launch day.   Missing in Action.  Or waiting on the fence to see how well you do first.   If something like that ever happens I suggest just relaunching at another date when you are more prepared and chalk that up as a “soft launch”. 

That was many years ago.  JvZoo has evolved. Even customers have evolved.

There was a bit of a controversy when one of its founders was sort of kicked out. E. Brian Rose and JvZoo went to court over some in house conflict that resulted in each side airing their dirty laundry and making both sides look a bit petty.  

I say petty but I am sure there were hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions on the line.

But they weathered the storm.

If you search for any negatives with the platform currently I see some negative reviews for individual products but not the platform they are being sold on but really that is still a reflection of the platform.  JvZoo could do a bit more clean up within to ensure higher quality offerings from vendors and how the customers are treated by those vendors.

Signing up

JvZoo currently is not big into their Onboarding process.  

Once you sign up you JvZoo will bring you to a section to pick a Payment Gateway whether Vendor or Affiliate.  

They will intentionally loop you back to this page every time you click the dashboard until you choose. 

 But at the very bottom house icon you can just give your real address and you can proceed with just that.  

Some people may not even realize that.

In your email do not expect a welcome email explaining and full of helpful links to explore…

Yep just the Facebook Group Links, Support Links then have a nice day!

I discovered some training but I had to go seek it.  When it should be given right from that first email in my opinion.

What type of Products?

JV Zoo Top Sellers: 

Here is the current JvZoo Product of the Day Deal

Tik ToK Product.  That will be primarily what is available…digital products for digital businesses.

The Dashboard is clean and easy on the eyes and had several sub menus.

Vendors get plenty of options including ability to ban certain affiliates.

Finding Products

Finding Products is not as easy as ClickBank or WarriorPlus you have to use filters and keywords.  Then categories then sub categories.

Creating affiliate links

After you request and confirm approval to promote a product then you are ready for creating your affiliate link. 

Just search for the product by name should do the trick.

Or you can just go down the list of all the products you have been approved to promote.

Then just click on the ‘Get Links’.

A pop-up then appears with your affiliate referral code snippet url.

If you get “Delayed” status it is just a safe guard to make sure you are not going to hit it and quit it and get paid then gone if refunds were to occur.

Payment methods

  • PayPal
  • Payoneer
  • Check
  • Direct deposit (via JVZoo Pay)

Just be sure to check a payment option is compatible with the banks in your country.

Payment threshold

A net positive balance of $50 to trigger a payment from JVZoo platform.

Publisher Help

JVZoo support in my experience is good but not the quickest.

I think the people that will do best at JvZoo will have a well-polished machine including Super Affiliates on every launch they create, well written sales copy, and a list of proven buyers already.

Anyone thinking because they got affiliates to sign up for their program and just wait until launch day for them to promote is going to be severely disappointed.

If you are a vendor definitely go the extra mile and create drop dead easy to implement affiliate tools such as banners, email swipes, heck even free training on how to be a better affiliate marketer.  Everyone wins.

Digging for JvZoo Training.

For one…there should be no digging.  But there is.

As I illustrated in the JvZoo Welcome Email nothing about training only about the Facebook Group.

But there is Free training available if you dig for it.

A bit confusing what is official JvZoo Training.

JvZoo could definitely do a better job in this area. I think they would make more money if they helped affiliates and vendors make more money.

Compared to ClickBank and WarriorPlus, JvZoo has some advantages and some disadvantages.

ClickBank is certainly easier to sign up with and begin promoting. And you also get paid quicker.

Clickbank also has a lower threshold to get paid just $10 vs JvZoo $50

WarriorPlus allows Free Products and JvZoo has a $17 minimum price to sell as a vendor

Jvzoo vendors love Hype of the Launch.  And they crush it with the money figures when they do.

There is a post over at NicheHacks titled “31 Lessons Learned Making $90,000 as a JvZoo Affiliate”

He shares some great insights.  Like being honest.  Sharing what your Upsells are upfront.  The fact that if you really want to soar with a product launch you need an eMail List.

He also shares to seek out high ticket products customers usually have more buyer satisfaction from these “complete systems” type of products.

Another great topic is copywriting.  The fact that every product you sell should have superb copy and also everything we share as affiliates should be excellent copy as well.  So good to seek out tips on writing copy.  That is what really fuels the internet.  Solving problems and how we present it.

How to get the most from the JvZoo Platform…

Configure your payment options

Get to know the platform 

Easy to figure out and navigate

Training is available but not as obvious as it could and should be.

Delayed payments may be a part of the equation until you build more confidence with Vendors.

It is vital to filter out the crappy products and same for the vendors selling them

Solve problems more than chase the money.

Do not play games with potential customers just be straight up with them what the upsells are.

Having your own email list added to the mix will increase chances of success considerably.

Do join the Facebook Groups and form alliances and get tips.

You can share affiliate links creatively while helping others to learn affiliate marketing.

Use the Launch Calendars! 

 The more prepared you are for a JvZoo launch date the better you will do.

Match the offers to the right audience.

Check the “Pulse” of each product.

Give honest and fair appraisals of any product you promote.

Share a real story around content to make it more engaging.

JvZoo is not a scam. They pay and they pay on time. But they may have a lot of products that are sub-par and sometimes vendors go a little crazy with number of upsells and it does not sit well with buyers.

Be sure to weed out these types of products because it will come down to a reflection of you if you are the person that sent the buyer to an uncomfortable experience.

A combination of high sales and low refunds is a great place to start for every product search.

Back to training…. It really seems like JvZoo priorities more on selling and making bucks then teaching how. 

Even their YouTube Channel is using JvZoo Products as Teaching mechanisms.

But you can find plenty of quality on YouTube in regards to JvZoo and being Successful with it.

Big name Marketers, Newcomer Marketers fresh on the scene that are still helpful.  

You could even become the next JvZoo Tutorial Creator and blend in your affiliate links or your unique JvZoo Course into your content and Videos.

If you see a weakness in JvZoo you can capitalize on it with your own Offering and Training.

Create an original product as a Vendor or find the right quality products that already exist and blend them into your content.

You could do a survey of fellow JvZoo affiliates and ask then what are the biggest challenges they are having within the platform or their affiliate business and come up with a solution and a product at the same time.  

There are some JvZoo products that could be leveraged to get your more sales.

2 things that are critical would be copywriting and Listbuilding and those would complement not just JvZoo but any Affiliate Network and the results you attain with them

So I hope this review not only provides some basic insights on JvZoo but also gives you a spark in some manner to rise to the occasion and become the best vendor, affiliate or both that you can become.

Learn from the people that are already crushing it either as affiliates or as vendors and you can duplicate that success step by step.

The power of a Network is the numbers.  The exposure and the fact that you can increase your reach exponentially and JvZoo is still growing.  Find the best offers. Find the best vendors. Find the best affiliates.  Create a Standard in all areas and try not to waiver from it from a quality standpoint.

You can still promote products in other Networks as well.  The offers that are live today will be different very soon and you can take advantage of that. 

 But focus on having that audience in place no matter what and no matter what you have to promote.
