Resell Rights Tutorial

Postby Lynn Terry » Tue Aug 29, 2006 10:16 pm

This is a tutorial that I put out to my SSWT Subscribers this week. I hope you find it useful. Feel free to post your questions or comments, of course!

Resell Rights Tutorial

1) Download the Reseller Package

Once you purchase a product that comes with Resell Rights,
you will be given a download link. Be sure to save the
files to your hard drive in a place where you can easily
find them. You can create a folder on your Desktop or in
My Documents specifically for these files.

2) Unzip the Files if they are Zipped

If you dont already have a utility to unzip files with the
.zip extension, download the evaluation version of WinZip
at .

You can check by right-clicking on zipped files to see if
you have an unzip or extract option already available.

Once you download and install winzip, you will be able to
right click on files and select "Unzip" or "Extract".

3) Review the Files

If there is a README file, you will want to read this for
any instructions offered. Otherwise, open the files to see
what you have. HTML files (web pages) generally need minor
editing. You will want to customize these pages, making
sure to add your own custom order links for checkout.

4) Set up Payment Processing

You will need to set up an account for payment processing so
that people can order securely from your sales page. Below
are four of the more popular options:

PayPal - Very popular and easy, but limits orders from 'at risk' countries...

2CheckOut - For International Credit Card Processing

PayDotCom - Offers PayPal Checkout with the option to
set up your own Affiliate Program as well...

ClickBank - Very popular option that also allows people
to promote your products as an affiliate. Your product
will be added to their active ClickBank Marketplace...

5) Set Up Domain Name & Hosting

You can host your sales page on a domain that you already
own, or choose a catchy new name to match the product you
are promoting. Simply go to to find
a domain name that is available. You can register your
domain name for less than $10.

Next you will need a hosting account. This is where you
point your domain name, and where you will upload your files
so that people can find them on the internet.

HostGator allows you to host up to 50 domain names on one
account, all for under $10/month. This means that you can
set up multiple websites, and manage them all from one
control panel - and only pay one low price to host all of
your websites.

I use Hostgator for several of my own sites. They offer a full
list of features, great stats and live support.

6) Upload Your Files

Once you have set up your hosting account, pointed your
domain name to it, and customized your HTML files... you
are ready to upload the files to your hosting account.

You can read the Users Guide or FAQ at your web host to
find out how to upload your files through the control panel.
Or you can use an FTP program such as Total Commander.

Total Commander is Shareware:

7) Promote Your New Product

Once you have your sales page online, it's time to market
your new product! You can add a link to your site in your
Email Signature, and also in your Forum Signatures. You
should also send this link out to your email list if you
have one. I've included a few resources below to help you
get started:

download the free Google Adwords Made Easy guide:

list, see the free series that has just started up by List
Building Intensive (by invitation only):

Links in resell products

If you buy a product that has resell rights, can you change the links in it to your affiliate links?

No - you may not edit the content in any way with basic Resale Rights. You may edit content with Private Label Rights or Public Domain content. See this page for the breakdown of various rights:

Thanks Lynn. I just realized too, that it is a locked pdf file, so you couldn't change it even if you could. :?
