How did I select the Best Sellers?
I searched for the front-end products with the highest Sales Funnel Value.
As you can only filter per individual product in the JVZoo product database, I used this formula to calculate the Sales Funnel Value:
(Number of Total Funnel Sales) X (Average Sales Funnel Price) = Total Sales Funnel Value.
In the table below, I have classified the top 25 best selling products by Sales Funnel Value.
It includes front-end products launched the last 3 years and could still be purchased at the moment of this writing (January 2018).
|Launched||# Funnel Sales||Sales Value||Link|
|Easy Sketch Pro v1-3

|YouZign 1.0 + 2.0

|Viddyoze Live Action

|IMSC Rapid Mailer
|My Unfair Advantage
1) JVZoo doesn’t show the exact number of sales but round them down to the nearest “round number” (of 500 or 1,000 sales). Hence, calculated Gross Sales Funnel Value in table above is often lower than the actual value.
2) Numbers are Gross Sales Values. Refunds were not taken into account.
3) Table doesn’t show products with recurring fees and high-priced ticket products (i.e. front-end sales price higher than $300.00).
4) Some products have been launched more than once. Especially if there were new software upgrades. I added these up together.

Categorization and drill down of best sellers
The top 5 products are all video creation tools. Hence, you can say that video marketing and related products are really hot.
Among the video creation tools there are different categories…
Read my article how to create short attention grabbing videos for social media and advertising purposes to see what the differences are between these applications.
As third category and interesting sub niche, Paul Ponna and Todd Gross came up with 2 best-selling Video Spokespersons apps: VideoPal and VideoBuilder App.
Of course, with the increased interest in video marketing, you want to rank your videos as well. The best way to rank videos is still with (social) back links that can be achieved with VideoRankr and Hydravid.
As it’s all about attention grabbing, every marketer needs tool to create/edit images, memes, quotes, GIFs, and Cinemagraphs.
Graphitti created by the Viddyoze team was the best selling Cinemagraphs creator tool followed by Explaindio’s ClipGraph, and Brett Ingram’s Flicktive.
(Read my Flicktive vs ClipGraph vs Graphitii Review).
The best selling Image Editing Software still is YouZign. However, the same as with video templates with easy to adjust scenes, the market screams for easy to use graphics mockup apps as Richard Madison’s Lifetime Studio FX (formerly sold by Jimmy Kim) and Radu’s Designo Pro 2.
With respect to Quotes, Brett Ingram and Mo Latif did a great launch with Quotamator.
The next hot trend is Print-on-Demand & Dropshipping. It started with Print-on-Demand T-shirt selling on platforms as TeeSpring, Represent and ViralStyle (products as Tee Inspector, Tee Advantage (now closed), and Pi Scaled) and broadens to other physical products, like dropshipping products sourced via AliXpress, and marketed via platforms as Shopify and FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon).
In the best seller list, there are some unique software tools to get viral traffic via social media as OctoSuite, Viral Autobots, Reclick 2.0, and Mints App 2.0. (Check out also UpViral – launched via ThriveCart‘s affiliate platform).
Of course, we find some products related to the “evergreen” topic Email Marketing & List Building. Especially 2 tools for using your own server as email sender (MailX and IMSC Rapid Mailer) were popular.
As last software category, the market has been hit by a bunch of Webinar Software Applications as Webinar JEO, Webinar Fushion Pro, Easy Webinar 4.0, Demio, and WebinarJam (last 3 are not sold via JVZoo).
What about Training and Courses?
Just 2 inside the top 25…
Omar & Melinda Martin’s My Unfair Advantage is a membership site with Live Webinars, Products, Training, Software and Tools to build your online business.
And Michael Cheney had some excellent and affordable video courses as his The Commission Machine, Fanpage Money Method, Commission Black Ops, Commission Cartel, Commissionology all with thousands of sales.
However, the “real” money came from his 7-Figure Franchise upsell ($1,997) with 500+ sales (hence, passing $ 1 million). It’s a franchise where affiliates get access to all his products, can sell all Michael’s products with 100% commissions (except the franchise itself with 50% commissions) and use all his promo material (as emails).
Anyway, by “giving away the whole farm” Michael made a decent income and got lots of new buyers to whom he can send his daily (affiliate promo) emails to..
So far my quick categorization and summary of the 25 best selling products.
“Serial Launchers” with high combined sales
Of course, as vendor you want your product to be as successful and make as many sales as possible, but with several minor products launches, overall, you can beat a vendor with just one or two products.
A good example is Ankur Shukla, the number 4 Top Seller in 2017, who launched one software product on average each month in 2017 (see the list behind his name above).
Just below the top 10 are “serial launchers” as Cyril Gupta, Brett Ingram & Mo Latif, and Chris X from Memeplex.
What do you need to become a best seller?
First, you need quality products and a good converting sales funnel. All top selling products are either software tools or high-end video training courses (or a combination of them). A PDF training course won’t be sufficient (or it should include PLR and video training as upsell). Also, the product/training should be really giving value and cover a new/recent trend or new automation possibility.
The main hot topics for Internet Marketers are more or less categorized above and will be the same the coming years.
However, there will also be changes. Internet marketers will always search for:
- new (free or paid) traffic sources,
- new ways to communicate and engage with leads/buyers (How to build your Tribe besides via email marketing?),
- new niches and markets and/or new products to create/promote (spy on your competition),
- new ways to automate repeating (manual) tasks,
- new ways to use new techniques and information technology,
- new ways to increase conversions and ROI.
Secondly, you’ll need affiliates who will promote your products. And you can only be a top seller if the top affiliates will promote your product.
To convince top affiliates to promote your product/launch, you’ll need duh…
at least a quality and high converting product (funnel) with high EPC…
but you’ll probably need to do some additional things as:
- Have a launch contest with inspiring prices to win.
- Create promotional material (like swipe files and bonuses).
- Give special privileges to top affiliates (like affiliate % bumps, create “exclusive” bonuses).
- Give extra support and access to you (or your launch team) to help affiliates with their campaigns.
- Reciprocate and support top affiliates own product launches.
Or to say it in other words…
“I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine”
So, that’s why (almost) all top sellers are also (top) affiliates themselves as you can see in my article Top 10 JVZoo Affiliates and what you can learn from them.
Hence, it can be very difficult to become a best seller for your first product release.
Simple because the top affiliates just won’t know you… yet…
The best way to overcome this obstacle is to partner with a well-known product seller, affiliate manager, or campaign manager who has the necessary experience and connections.
And be in mind, behind all successful products (at least in the table above), there was always a team involved.
So don’t try to do everything yourself (from product creating, copywriting, logo & web design, setting up the sales pages, attracting affiliates etc.). Do the thing(s) you’re good at and outsource tasks or partner with others who are better in their specific fields.
Anyway, I hope this page did help you to get a better insight in which products are the best sellers on JVZoo and why.
Use this knowledge to setup your own product funnels or select your favorite “evergreen” products to promote as an affiliate.
Feel free to check out all sales pages and my reviews. You can learn a lot by just “spying on” successful sales pages and funnels.
Or read my reviews to learn why these products are awesome (and/or maybe have some shortcomings too).
Note: to become a seller or affiliate on JVZoo, you need a separate JVZoo Sellers/Affiliate Account (besides a Customer’s Account – if you bought a product via the JVZoo platform). You can use this Sellers/Affiliate account for both your own products and to promote products from others as an affiliate.
