Membership and Product Delivery Solutions

Selling products or services is the basis of any serious online business and when you set out to start one, you soon face a big obstacle: what should you use, to handle all the technical stuff?

Things like collecting payments, delivering your digital products, managing customers and members, etc.

What you need is a product delivery solution. But which one is right for your business?

In this article (warning: it’s loooong), I go into detail about product delivery, talk about which solutions are good, which are bad and what you should consider for your own products and membership sites.

I’ll also give you a detailed run-down of some of the platforms I have personally had a close look at: aMember Pro, Digital Access Pass (DAP), EasyMemberProFusionHQKajabi, Nanacast, Premium Web Cart and SiteManPro.

Read on to learn pretty much everything you need to know about product delivery and membership sites, all in one post.

WP Enlighten Review

WP Enlighten is, as far as I can tell, the new and improved version of a product previously called WP Sales Engine.

It’s a WordPress plugin which lets you turn any page on a WordPress site into a sales-page, including various options for adding styled boxes, order buttons, testimonials and videos.

Here’s a quick video tour, to show you exactly what it’s like to use this plugin.

EasyVideoSuite Review

In 2010, I published a review of Easy Video Player 2.  Since most of the other so-called reviews for this product online were just promotional hype-fests and mine actually pointed out some flaws in the software, the post was a bit controversial.

The “sequel” to EVP2 has just generated a lot of buzz with a big launch and I’m already getting questions about it, so I decided I should publish a review of EasyVideoSuite as well. As usual, what you’ll find here is not my participation in the launch of the product. It’s an actual review, not an advertisement.

With that said, let’s get right to it.

BuildMyRank Review

NOTE: In case you are finding this post now, be aware that link networks like BuildMyRank have been rendered ineffective as a link building method. All the data and results in this review come from testing done long before Google “slapped” this link building method. While this review is positive, because BMR was great at the time, it has now unfortunately become obsolete.

BuildMyRank is what might be described as a “high-PR blog network” in the style of LinkVana. What you get with “usual” blog networks is the ability to post spun articles to potentially hundreds of (mostly low-quality) blogs. With BuildMyRank, you write unique posts with your links inside them and each post gets submitted to only one single blog.

This may seem like a really bad deal, at first glance, but the key is that a system like BuildMyRank puts the emphasis on quality rather than quantity: BMR only has blogs with pagerank (ranging from PR1 to PR6) in their network and they make an effort to get every single post indexed.

Is it worth the trouble writing unique posts (or outsourcing the task) or should you stick to more automated link-building solutions? Read on to find out.

Blog Network Roundup Review

Blog networks are among my favorite sources for targeted link-building. There’s no other way in which you can so easily get in-content, anchor-text backlinks from a whole lot of websites all over the Internet.

The question is: which ones of the many available networks should you join? Which ones are worth the investment and which ones should you avoid? And of course, the most important question: which networks provide the most and best backlinks?

That’s what we’re going to find out in this roundup review.

Putler Review

PayPal can be a blessing and a curse, in more ways than one. Anyone who accepts PayPal payments for their business knows that, on the one hand, it’s fantastic to be able to use such a simple and widely accepted form of online payments without much hassle and without any setup fees. On the other hand, most PayPal vendors have to deal with nightmarish issues like frozen accounts, impossible customer support and bad complaint handling at some point or another.

Even at the best of times, one of the most grating things about PayPal is their impossibly sluggish website. It can take minutes (and feel like it’s taking hours) to get from the login page to the detailed view of one specific transaction. This is a problem that Putler, a desktop-based PayPal management app, attempts to solve. And it brings a few other perks along with it.

SYNND Review

SYNND can perhaps be described as a “collaborative social promotion” tool. It’s purpose is to drive traffic and (allegedly) increase your search engine rankings, but the way it achieves this is quite different from the way many of the well-known automated link building tools go about it.

Does SYNND really help you get more traffic to your site and is it worth the investment? Read the review to find out.
