Setting Up Your Download Page
1. How to Set Up a Download Page
In this lesson, we are going to discuss how to set up a download page.
In this step, you are going to set up a download page or downloadable files. You will upload them to JVZoo or to some other platform. It allows you to deliver your content from your sales page so your customers can get what they paid for.
This is a very important part of the process. Without it, your customers don’t get what they paid for. If you don’t do it correctly, you are stuck with a pile of support. You need to make sure you can successfully deliver your product. You can use a download page. It is a simple way for customers to get their files.
There is an alternative way, and that is what we recommend you use throughout the No Cost Product Launch. This process is to upload your file to JVZoo. Then the customer will download a zip file that contains your product package. This can include your e-book, audios, videos, instructions, etc.
They can download everything that you sold to them right from the JVZoo account. This is the best way to go about it. Then you don’t have to worry about web hosting. You don’t have to worry about a free web hosting program removing your files. That is the approach we take here because we are all about doing it at no cost. We want you to use the tools offered.
You can also offer downloads through creating a page at www.wix.com or www.weebly.com. They are both a good way to control your offers. You can also use them to promote upsell offers and affiliate offers. Offer links straight from your download links to make it easy.
With JV Zoo, there is a way to do it through a PDF and that also links those buyers directly to your list. That will actually be very helpful. Ideally, you will get to the point where you are generating money. Then it will make sense to invest in your own website hosting and your own domain.
That way, you can offer your own download pages from your own server. Again, we are all about this process right now for free. We want to make sure you understand how to get it set up and how it all works. You can launch your product without spending money. Then you can invest some of your profit to move forward from there in your business.
We are going to demonstrate how to set up your files for download, how to zip them up into a folder, and how to work with them in just a moment.
2. Creating Zip Files
In this lesson, we are also going to show you how to get your Zip file ready, for example, for JVZoo, so you can start selling your product. The first thing is you need to take the PDF you created, let’s assume an eBook for example. That will be simple for you to follow the steps. It would be the same process if you had video files or audio files. Everything would flow into the same package we are going to do, and then Zip it up.
In Microsoft Word and you can hit Save As and save it as a PDF. If you use Open Office, you can go to Export and then save it as a PDF. I am going to call it Natural Acne Cure for this example. Let’s say you put together a series of videos, we don’t want to mess with people having a hard time watching them. We need to make it as easy as possible on the customers.
One way you can do that is to allow www.youtube to host them. How do you prevent just anyone though from coming across them and watching them? What you do is go to Select Files to Upload on your computer. Choose unlisted video first.
Upload the video and for example here we will call it video 1. Don’t use keywords here. Then click on Save Changes. This is going to provide your link for where it is going to be found, to where people can go to view your video.
Right click and copy that link.
Go back to the OpenOffice and type in Video #1: What is Acne and put the link for the video. Below it, you can repeat the process for video #2 and so on. Then you don’t have to upload the videos to a host site. Save the links in your PDF file. Just save the file as the same name but with the extension of videos at the end. So the example would be Natural Acne Cure – videos.
Let’s go to our folder and you will see those two PDFs in your folder and your copy. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s check to make sure the PDFs came through ok. Just click on them and open them up.
As long as they open up and the links were you are good to continue. We are going to put all of these files into a Zip file.
First, we are going to create a PDF form that gets people to sign up for product updates. This gets your buyers onto your list. As mentioned, if you are using paid options then this is a whole lot easier. You can then send them over to the opt in page automatically and also deliver your content.
If you are doing it this way, the free method for your first product launch, you want to include a PDF that will give them a form to opt in. You can use OpenOffice or Microsoft Word for this. You can also use Google Docs. Open a new file and the example here will be to type in Get the Latest Updates and Information On Curing Acne Naturally. CLICK HERE NOW.
You can also offer an additional bonus. Let’s say you have a special bonus you want to offer. You can tell them that if they click here, they can get the bonus for free. That is going to encourage them to provide their details. They want that bonus audio file or bonus report. The link you include here is set up by clicking on hyperlink.
Then you can choose the link to your free landing page.
It will be from wherever you decided to use the tool from such as Wix or Weebly to send out your free updates. Click Apply for the link and hit close. Now when people click on that, it will take them to that free landing page and they can access the information found there. You can also link it up by highlighting and then inserting hyperlink.
All you are doing here is targeting to take people right to your opt in form. You want to have a list through www.listwire.com. That is how you get buyer’s information so you can follow up with them later.
The next step is to put all of your files for everything into a Zip file. Hold down the CTRL key as you click your mouse on each file name. Right click and select send to compressed zip folder from the drop down menu. A new folder will appear and you can rename it. For this example we will call it Natural Acne Cure Product.
Everything is zipped up tight in this folder now and ready to go.
So now we are ready for the next part of the process. That involves going to JVZoo and uploading the product – linking it so that it is set up in our account. Then we will be ready to go on to the next part of the process.
