If you haven’t heard of RAPBank yet, let me tell you that they are revolutionizing the affiliate marketing world. Based on an instant payment model, both vendors and affiliates earn immediately after the sale, not weeks or months down the line. For the vendor, or product producer, this means that affiliates can market the product more aggressively, since instant payments can be funneled back into advertising without coming out of pocket. This means more money for everyone involved.
Setting up your own products to market through RAPBank has been made tremendously easier with the introduction of their List-n-Earn service. Prior to this introduction, if you wanted to sell your products with an instant payment program you had to have expensive software installed on your server. Set up basically took a degree in computer science or a well paid tech wizard to do it for you. But no more.
Once you sign up for RAPBank you can immediately begin offering products on their marketplace. There are basically two different options. You can list for a one time fee (as of this writing $10 or $20) with either a 10 or 20 of YOUR payments, not the payments your affiliates receive. This listing option is open to free associates. For me the $20 listing option is the better deal, because on a $20 product I only pay $20 on 10 personal payments not $40. So I earn back that $20 quickly. The second option is to list your product for free once you become a paid member. There are too many other benefits for paid membership to list here. But this is one major one.
To list your product you basically download the list-n-earn package from RAP bank. This includes a set of files and folders that you install on your web server, and an instruction manual. I was kind of scared at first, because I am anything but a tech geek. But the process was amazingly simple. You install one folder to your root server, and just leave it there, no changes necessary. You install a product folder for each of your products and name it to whatever you want. You save your sales page, thank you page, and error page to the “templates” directory in your product folder, and submit your product to RAPBank.
As you go through the listing process, you are given a product id that you then insert into one line of one file within the product directory. You change one line in another to your domain name, and set all your sales links to a set code. NO multiple PayPal buttons to generate and paste, just one link that stays the same across all your pages. It was really not difficult at all. Once you have everything set, you simply submit the product, set keywords and descriptions, and wait for approval. And that is IT. From there it is autopilot. A quick and easy process, that will have payments hitting your PayPal account as soon as your affiliates make sales. It couldn’t be easier.
