Systeme.io has some unique features that make it stand apart from its competitors.
Here are 8 things that only Systeme.io can do:
Let me explain...
When we built Systeme.io we realized there was no need for users to create a product in their dashboard in order to sell a digital product.
Instead, we have created a very simple and intuitive mechanism that’s called "resources".
Payment page settings
A resource is an action that will be triggered whenever a purchase is made on a payment page.
So, on each payment page you can set resources that will be granted to a customer after they make a payment.
Resources to which the customer will have access after a purchase
The following resources are available:
The same mechanism works for order bumps, upsell pages and downsell pages.
Just set the above resources on them, and they'll be triggered every time someone makes a purchase
Which leads to the next cool feature:
If a customer gets a refund or in the case of a subscription, if they decide to cancel their subscription/s, then all the resources they were given access to are immediately canceled.
For example, if the customer has been given access to an online course, then his access is removed.
It’s great because you don’t have to do this manually.
You can sit back and relax, Systeme.io has got you covered!
A prime example of this would be Clickbank affiliate marketplace.
I have been selling on Clickbank for years
After purchasing on Clickbank, my customers would get access to an online course hosted on my Wordpress site.
When they received their refund, their access to the course wasn’t canceled because I had no way to automate it.
But that was before Systeme.io ;-)
The next feature could help you double the amount of new leads you are getting per day, but use it at your own risk…
I’ll admit this one is sneaky.
I got the idea from Linkedin.
When you land on their website to check out someone’s resume, they tell you that you need to sign up in order to see it.
So I put a popup on each one of my blog posts that was saying « Become a member to read the full article. It’s free, just enter your email address »
There was no button to close the popup, so visitors had the choice to either enter their email address or leave.
A popup you can't close
This instantly doubled the amount of leads I was getting per day (from 60 leads per day to 120 leads per day).
Of course leads were not as qualified as before.
After the opt-in I had an email sequence selling on autopilot, and I was able to calculate that in the end, I was doing 30% more revenue than before.
If you want to use this feature you should be careful, because more visitors will enter a bogus email address, so you should clean your list on a regular basis.
Now the next features are about affiliation, because there were many features that we needed and couldn’t find in the market.
With Systeme.io every person on your list is an affiliate.
With some other software, affiliates have to register as affiliates, enter their payment details.. …OMG! This is insane!
It causes a lot of friction, and you don’t want this.
Systeme.io's affiliate program dashboard
This is why with Systeme.io every person on your list has an affiliate ID and can promote your products right away.
All this is possible with Systeme.io
To start your affiliate program with Systeme.io all you need is…
A squeeze page built with Systeme.io
But wait, because there is more! Not only can you register affiliates without any friction, but you can offer them more value than with any other affiliate program out there.
How? By offering them lifetime commissions.
Here is how:
This is a huge advantage of having all the features you need under one roof:
Since your email list and your payment pages are hosted on the same software, it’s actually possible to run an affiliate program that offers lifetime commissions.
Systeme.io's affiliate dashboard
You see, when you promote an affiliate offer (for example an offer from Clickbank), you won’t get commissions on sales made AFTER the original purchase.
So you send customers to a vendor.
He keeps selling to them over and over again, and you won’t make commissions on those sales.
Pretty terrible, right?
The main reason vendors won’t pay affiliate commissions on sales made after the original purchase, is because it’s almost impossible:
You need to track affiliate ID in your autoresponder, and it’s not easy to get this data out from Clickbank and add it to your list.
With Systeme.io, affiliate tracking is made with cookies AND in the database.
This ensures that affiliate tracking is a lot stronger than if it was tracked only with cookies, especially these days where most people use multiple devices (smartphone, desktop at work, tablet, etc)
Let me give you an example to show you how strong our affiliate tracking is:
Let’s say that affiliate A referred a lead to our affiliate program. John clicked on affiliate A’s affiliate link and opted into our list. At this time John was at work, on his desktop (don’t judge! We’ve all done it ;-) )
Now John is on our email list, and we send him emails to convert him into a customer.
Now 6 months later, John is on holiday, and he receives an email from us while he is on his cell phone. He clicks on the link and purchases the offer that we are promoting.
He uses a different email address than the one he used when he opted in on our list 6 months ago.
And guess what? Affiliate A WILL STILL BE CREDITED for the sale and he will earn a commission.
How is it possible?
Because in each email we send, we automatically add the affiliate ID of the affiliate that referred the lead to us.
So in this case, when John clicked on the link in the email while he was on holiday, we put a cookie on his cell phone’s browser, and even if he used a different email address, we knew he was coming from affiliate A and thus we were able to credit him for the sale.
Pretty cool, huh?
Of course there is absolutely no obligation to pay lifetime commissions to your affiliates.
With Systeme.io, on each payment page you can set the percentage you want to give to affiliates.
Enter 0 if you don’t want to pay affiliate commissions for this offer.
Sticky cookie anyone? Just kidding ;-)
But hold on, because we went even further…
Let me explain: at Systeme.io we run our own affiliate program.
Affiliates send leads to us (people who subscribe to our email list through their affiliate link), and then we convert these leads into customers and we pay affiliate commissions to our affiliates.
But sometimes I want to promote an offer from a partner to my list.
The issue is, the affiliates who referred the people on my list won’t make money out of it.
Unless.. ..I split my affiliate commissions with the affiliates who referred the leads to us!
Let me give you an example:
John subscribed to our email list by clicking on Affiliate A’s affiliate link.
I promote an offer to my list from Vendor V as an affiliate
(I use my own affiliate link)
John buys the offer from Vendor V
I earn an affiliate commission for this sale.
Well, there is a feature in Systeme.io that will allow me to share my affiliate commissions with Affiliate A
In our case, we share 50% of our affiliate commissions with our own affiliates, but you can set the percentage you want.
What’s amazing with this feature is that it allows you to run your own affiliate program even if you don’t have offers to sell!
You just need offers to promote as an affiliate
This is why we built a marketplace:
There are marketplaces around like Clickbank.
I had been selling as a vendor on Clickbank for years
It was quite a painful experience:
So when we built Systeme.io I was like « it’s an opportunity to offer a better alternative to Clickbank »
This is why we launched the marketplace on Systeme.io in August of 2019
You can publish any offer you have on the marketplace. All you need is a Systeme.io account. And there are no extra fees.
You can also use the marketplace as an affiliate to find offers to promote.
When your affiliates start earning commissions you need to pay their commissions, and this is where you need feature #8:
With Systeme.io there are two forms of payments for affiliates:
Affiliate commission payments
Paypal is quite easy to automate, you just use Paypal Mass Pay
But automating wire transfers is a different story…
We looked at solutions like Tipalti but were not happy with the user experience: poor design, obligation for affiliates to open an account with them, lots of features we didn’t need…
We kept looking and we found Transferwise, a startup from the UK that has an API to automate payments.
Vendors just have to create a Borderless account (it takes literally 3 clicks, amazing user experience) and connect it to their Systeme.io account.
Then they need to make sure it has the necessary funds and voila! Payments will be made to their affiliates on the 10th of each month.
It used to take us one person half a day to make wire transfers to our affiliates.
Now it’s done automatically by our system.. ..we love it!
We built Systeme.io for us.
Today it powers our entire online business and allows us to make over $150,000 per month in revenue.
We believe it is the best tool to run your online business, and more than 5,000 customers feel the same.
But you know what?
Don’t just take our word for it and try it for yourself.
