JVZoo is one of the most popular affiliate platforms available today and while many online business owners have seen great success in selling digital products over JVZoo, physical products still have and do sell inside the marketplace.
This post will cover what you need to consider before deciding to create, or even launch a physical product over the platform.
1. What is a physical product?
A physical product is essentially anything that can be delivered to your customer offline, and is therefore the opposite of a digital product. Here I’ve written an entire post about how to be successful with digital products. A physical product will have a lag time between when a customer pays for it, and when they receive it physically in their hands. A physical product most typically will be a paperback or hardcover book, a series of DVDs or CDs with training on them your customer can watch on their computer or TV, a series of printed reports, a physical ticket or invitation to an event, a software hosted on a CD that the customer must use to download a secured software or program onto their computer, or any other physical item you can post in a parcel or letter to your customer. The most popular product you’re likely to come across online in general is a physical book; paperback or hardcover. These sometimes carry more value than an ebook because of the physical “I am holding something I purchased” feeling your customer will receive when they hold it. Even though we’re in the age of the internet, many still prefer to read and make notes in a physical book they can touch.
