[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f you’ve been looking for a way to make money online by selling your own products then you may be aware of using ‘resell rights’ products to help you get started.
Why resell rights? Well, in a nutshell, they allow you to sell a product that someone else has created whilst you keep all the money. In this sense it’s better than being an affiliate. Why earn just 50-75% commission when you can be the product owner and earn 100% – not to mention having other affiliates promote you too.
So if you Google ‘resell rights‘ somewhere on the front page you’ll come across a site called Platinum Resell Rights. The entertaining video makes it seem so easy and there’s lots of diagrams and pictures explaining everything, but let’s cut to the chase – what are you really getting and is it worth your time and money?
Let’s find out…
When first logging in to Platinum Resell Right, I have to admit I had my doubts. It felt like it might just be another wasted opportunity, but I was pleasantly surprised. The welcome page was exactly what I need to be put at ease.
I knew things were going fine when I saw just how much text there was waiting for me. Some might be turned off by the large wall of writing, but I knew it meant there was substance. It wasn’t just a canned and copied stereotypical welcome message. It was relevant and personal. I didn’t feel like a robot was doing the communicating. It felt like a real-life person with expertise and some actual care behind their words was behind the site and the message.
Not only was it personal, it was thorough and engaging enough to keep me moving forward. As a total beginner, I was glad it wasn’t assumed that I was an expert. There were directions to get me started, and they were simple and straightforward enough to apply to the most inexperienced of users. I can’t even begin to explain how little I understood about this process.
In particular, the “Setup Your First Product” video went a long way towards making me feel comfortable and at ease with the site and products. The delivery was comforting and the claim that “all will become clear” was not only reassuring but true. The video was rather long, but the included transcript allowed me to focus during my first listen, and then go back for reference later without issues.
On the other side of that coin, it seems if you’re someone who knows what’s going on, you don’t have to filter through a bunch basic information, but instead you’re provided with shortcuts to accelerate the process.
What About The Products?…
Of course, the most important part of Platinum Resell Rights are the products themselves. I’m rather picky in regards to professionalism. I’m sick of seeing poorly crafted and unprofessional junk all over the web.
I was genuinely surprised to see that the products offered were almost without exception professional looking on the outside, and high quality on the inside.
The graphic design doesn’t come off amateurish, like you might expect, and the overall presentation is actually pretty engaging thanks to dynamic visuals and catchy taglines. The actual product videos and dialogues, are well executed, and effectively convey the various strategies and methods being delivered.
The products themselves are stuffed with loads of material. The Super Time Management product, for instance, includes a plethora of useful time management strategies delivered in a variety of effective ways. There are hours of high quality components with a lot of attention to detail. The products are going to be easy to market, and will definitely prove useful to the end user, assuring that they will return for more in the future.
What About Extras?
I was extremely glad to see that bonus products were offered with membership. It was an unexpected treat that really upped the value of membership. Not only were they a bonus, but they retained the same quality as the standard products.
The process of setting up your site and selling products is simple enough after going through all educating modules that are offered. For those who are willing to take things a step further (and they should), there are various extra materials offered to make life easier. These include Brandable Squeeze Pages, Private Label Squeeze Pages, Copy ‘n’ Paste Emails, Copy ‘n’ Paste Cross-Sells, Photoshop Scripts, and MiniSite Graphics. Each of these extras make the entire process more painless and will make you a much more effective seller once you’ve used them.
What About Traffic Training?…
I think the one aspect that was the most useful to me was the huge assortment of traffic training modules. You can’t sell without potential customers, and getting traffic to your website is the first step to earning those customers. There are a lot of traffic videos, more than I can count in fact, and though they each differ in their effectiveness, there is something to take from all of them. It may seem overwhelming at first, but if you take your time to work through each traffic training module and then implement the strategies, you will almost certainly start to see results.
All in all, I was quite happy with what the Platinum Resell Rights membership had to offer. Unlike a lot of similar memberships which drop you off into a giant pile of information without any guidance or care, this membership puts the user first. You feel welcome and cared for, with as much instruction as actual product. There is a lot of attention to detail in every step, and there’s real value in the membership.
What About Setup Instructions?…
Once you’re ready to get started and you download the resell rights products, there’s still a lot to do. Unfortunately just downloading the resell rights products leaves a user with a lot of questions. It looks like a pile of files without any semblance of direction. If I’d been left on my own at that point I’d have been totally lost and disappointed. Thankfully Platinum Resell Rights doesn’t leave you hanging without any further guidance.
The setup webinar with well respected marketer Chris Farrell helps you take that meaningless group of files you just downloaded and make sense of them. I really can’t describe just how helpful the video was for me. I was completely overwhelmed, but the video assumes that and walks through each step with patience and care. You don’t need to know anything other than basic computer operations to get through the setup. There are helpful diagrams to go along with the instructions and help visualize the process. I finally managed to get the demo product set up with the help of Chris and his thorough directions.
It does take a substantial time commitment to go through the entire tutorial, but it’s more than worth it for the guidance it provides. It helped me to set aside a block of time to go through it all at once, and you may struggle if you try to break the tutorial up into numerous parts. Completing it all with some attention and focus gives you the know-how and confidence to set up a website and use it effectively to market your resell rights products. Don’t forget to download the “Articles 4 Newbies” product to work alongside the video. That’s a pretty important tool to follow along and help the video make so much more sense. I was able to handle everything by myself, and remember, this is all for someone who had no idea what was going on at first.
Specifically I learned what each of the files was meant for and how to use them. Before the video they looked like a jumbled mess, and afterwards they each had a purpose and function. I learned how to associate specific products with the different formats of websites available to market them (such as 7-day guarantees compared to 30-day guarantees). I picked up strategies to keep everything organized, and as someone who tends to get disorganized and confused, this was a welcome bonus. I didn’t know how to work with Paypal, but I was able to set up an account and get things moving slowly. There weren’t a lot of tips on using HTML and FTP programs, so I had to seek outside help for those elements.
I think the single most helpful element of the setup video was that I went from an unmotivated and confused individual to someone who suddenly had the confidence to start the process and start my sites and marketing. Even if you’re confused and hesitant, spending on the time on the tutorial will get you ready In just a couple hours.
Extras That You Should Know About…
Squeeze Pages – As every learning marketer knows ‘the money is in the list’. Having said that, what do you do with this information? You still have to put the time and effort into setting up a system and this can take hours on your first go not to mention the many more hours you spend adjusting and moving things around.
Thankfully inside there are a collection of very professional looking squeeze pages. These clearly out-class any typical squeeze page package that I’ve bought in the past, and once set up you should have no problem when you come to build your own mailing list.
What’s really great is that you get to build your mailing list and recommend other membership products within the email and reports that you hand out. Once I got my head around this I realized I hit gold! This is very powerful stuff.
Personal newsletter – The membership owner ‘Aaron Danker’ is a full time marketer himself and has created many products in the past for other people both privately and to the public. I remember reading somewhere on his blog that he started in 2007 which has given him plenty of time to practice this one skill.
In the members area, you’ll see a menu for ‘Mindset For Success’. This contains proper advice from Aaron himself. I found this extremely useful and because he answers questions that you’re already thinking about like… how to overcome saturation, how to sell better than other marketers who are selling the same product as you, why you should set up a 100% commission affiliate program, how to lower your refund rates, arranging your sales funnel and so much more. After been a member for a few months I found myself going straight to the newsletter just to read this information.
Cross-promoting banners – Another interesting addition to the membership are the banner graphics.
The idea behind them is to add 1-3 of these banners onto your thank you pages, so that after a customer has bought your product and is taken to the download page, you recommend other products as an affiliate.
This was so easy to do and the concept is so simple that I’m now applying it to all my thank you pages.
How Much Will I Make?…
There are claims of people making fiver-hundred dollars within the first three months online. I have no doubt in my mind of these earnings because that only requires 30 sales selling a $17 product.
There are others who claim to have made $100 within 2 weeks of joining starting with no mailing list!
There there are more experienced marketers who would rather not disclose any information because it’ll spoil their marketing plan and they’d rather keep quiet about it.
What you make will boil down to how motivated you are, how big your mailing list is, how repsonsive your subscribers are, how many times you email about the one product as well as other factors.
If you did join the membership and did nothing, don’t expect any miracles. There is a bit of work involved in building your mailing list and learning how to setup a basic sales funnel. All of which can be mastered within a few days. You’re essentially getting the products created for you so you don’t have to create them yourself. Of course in the future, when you get more confident online you can start doing them youself so you have something unqiue and truly your own. But until then, if time and money is scarce, this is something definitely worth joining.
There’s no doubt in my mind that these products are set to sell and can save you a fortune in creation costs – not to mention days putting something like this together. Even then I’d prefer not to!
Are Digital Products REALLY That Expensive To Create?
I think it’s a good idea to go into a little detail about the costs involved in product creation.
I remember when I first started out and saw sale letters claiming that this costs ‘x’ amount and this costs ‘y’ and I’m thinking… ‘is this for real?… or are they just over inflated prices to get me to buy’.
Just to get some idea of what it’s like to involved into the big bad world of outsourcing, you’ll need about $100-$200 for a graphic designer, around $10-$25 for someone to write just one promotion email, $100 for a voice creator (that’s per video), $200-300 for a sales letter writer and so forth.
Where do I get these numbers from you ask?… Just register an account at Elance.com and then place a job post for any of the above and you’ll have freelancers bidding their job prices. Some will be cheap, some will be quite expensive, but you’ll still get an average bid.
As you can see the cost really does add up which is why I feel sorry for those doing everything by themselves, or spending so much money on their first baby project when really those problems could be avoided.
These costs really do add up so when you compare the membership fee for Platinum Resell Rights you start to get some perspective on how much you’re saving.
Who Is This NOT For?…
Do not join Platinum Resell Rights…
• If you don’t plan on entering the internet marketing niche. There’s really no point in joining and selling products that your readers and subscribers have no interest in buying!
• If you’re capable of creating your own products and can sell them on a regular basis. You will do better in the long run for having your own unique products (even though the Platinum membership will be a great add-on)
• If you’re already making $1000/m+ online and have a good idea of what you’re doing. If you have your own method that’s working for you, and selling internet marketing training products is completely out of scope, then continue doing what you’re doing and develop what you’re doing. Jumping from one area to another may be a distraction and work against you.
Who Is This For?…
Do join Platinum Resell Rights…
• If you’re not making any money at the moment and want start with something already done for you.
• If you’re already making money and want to supplement your income by expanding into the internet marketing niche!
• If you want the products direct from the source from a marketer with over 5 years of experience creating products for you on a regular basis.
• If you want to save time and not spend weeks creating your own product from scratch.
• If you want to save money and not pay privately for freelancers to create separate components of your product e.g. graphic designers, sales copy writers, video voice-overs etc.
• If you’re planning to stay long term in the internet marketing niche. Because you will be building a list of people interested in setting up their own online business and will have a wide variety of products to sell now and in the future.
• If you plan to take action after joining – I’m sorry to say, you put in what you get out. If you do nothing, nothing will happen. If you use these products and promote them, you WILL make money.
What Are Other Members Saying?…
These are quotes taken directly from IMReportCard.com – this is feedback taken directly from people who went out of their way to express their opinions…
“This is the first membership site I joined and paid for. From the sales page, I knew I was going to get high quality resell products. And all for only $27 a month. I’m a newbie in internet marketing and I’ve been searching for high quality products to resell. I’m glad I found this site. Like the other commenters said, the products are packaged with high quality sales pages, autoresponder emails, e-courses, affiliate banners.. It’s a complete package to me. He also includes bonus products, which are of high quality too.
I’m starting to love Aaron Danker. His products are guaranteed high quality and will sell really easily. He makes internet marketing seems easy to me. I’ve also emailed him a few times, and received immediate replies.” – by somel
“If you are an affiliate marketer, joining this service will be like an upgrade for you. Platinum Resell Rights is just like affiliate marketing the only difference is that you make a one time investment on a certain product and when you sell that product, you keep all the money made. I recommend this to anyone who is beginning in internet marketing. It is very simple to do. Everything you need to know is already done for you. You’re only job is to advertise. I am currently paying $27 for Platinum Resell Rights but that is only a small portion of what I am making out of it. You don’t even need your own website to sell these ebooks that you receive. You can simply sell them on sites such as ebay. I personally love this program because it is so easy to sell and make money out of it. I highly recommend to everyone, whether you are a beginner in the internet marketing world or not. Go and sign up now!” – by xitsmex
“Platinum Resell Rights is a great program that is sort of like affiliate marketing. However, the products that you sell bring you more profits through their program. This service shows that you can pay a small price for a big opportunity.
When I started this service about three months ago I figured it would be another marketing scam site that promises to teach you all the knowledge in the world but doesn’t make you any money. Within the first three months I made almost five hundred dollars.
This service is sort of like the diamond in the sand to me. I will continue using this service and selling different products. I combine this service with others to complete my money making scheme. I use other services in order to generate traffic and attention to my products. However, this service is the backbone to my scheme. I rate this service a B+ because it’s a great opportunity that no person seeking an online marketing opportunity should pass up.” – by gringo1
Value for money: 9/10
We gave Platinum Resell Rights a 9 out of 10 for value for money. The fee entry is only a fraction of the real cost you’d pay privately. This is a very safe investment even for beginners and a no-brainer for those more experienced.
Ease of use: 8/10
This depends on your current ability. If you’re completely new and find HTML a bit of a challenge then it may take you longer to set this up. However if you’ve dabbled online long enough you’ll probably know what to do with the files as soon as you open them. With practice you will know what to do with your files without referring to any instructions.
Quality of products: 9/10
The quality of each product is exceptional. There are numberous memberships and offers out there online however the completeness of each package surpasses anything else we’ve seen before. As quoted from one of the video testimonials on the main page… “The way I download it is the same way I upload it…”
Profit speed: 7/10
We gave Platinum Resell Rights a 7 out of 10 for how quickly you can make money once you become a member. Beginners are realistically looking at about 3-4 days of solid list building and promoting before they have enough subscribers to sell their product. Those with existing mailing lists will be making their money back many times over on the first day. So this really is a 2 level score… for beginners: 7/10, for those with mailing lists 10/10.
The business model itself works whether you use Platinum Resell Rights or not. Having Platinum products to go with it is just the cherry on top. You pay a one-off fee for the resell rights license, and then you can sell as many times as you want.
Our Final Verdict – 4/5 Stars
We gave Platinum Resell Rights an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Rarely do we give 5/5 to products because there’s always an element of initial work involved and this membership is no different. Get your mailing list built, and you’ll do very well.
Overall this is a great membership for anyone starting out online. You’ve got your products covered, setup training covered, and traffic training covered. All that’s left is to take action. The asking price is relatively cheap in my opinion when you consider all the time and problems it can save. If you’re even remotely interested in selling products online, I’d say don’t waste time creating them yourself because you’ll either do a bad job of it, or you’ll be caring about every single detail that it’ll never be released. Instead just focus on working with what’s already created and get selling. That’s where the money is.
Bottom line: Platinum Resell Rights comes highly recommended.
