    Default Rebranding PDFs

    As an affiliate I love to be able to share rebranded PDFs. My question is about the software used to do this: Which rebrander is best, and why?

    I've used a couple of them and the one easiest for me was ViralPDF Silver. I am looking however at a service provided by James Grandstaff where all the rebranding and storing is done on their servers. You just upload the source document (Word or Open Office) with the links coded to be recognized by their system. Then the affiliate logs into your page on the rebranding site to produce and download the rebranded version.

    Gary & I are testing a new version of our Affiliate Tools Page plugin that provides a tab for an iframe of your rebranding page on James' site. We should have that ready to go by next week.

    Been using ViralPDF since about 2007-8. Been very happy with it. Only downside is that you have to supply the rebrander with it and it's an EXE file (which means you can't send the file via e-mail). What I do is create a small PDF rebrander guide to show my affiliates how to step through the rebranding, and zip everything up in a ZIP file.

    Connie, I have developed a web-based system that can help. It's not for public release yet but I'll send you info and you can test it out.

    @Lynette -- would your new system be something we could integrate into the Affiliate Tools Page plugin?

    Since I am a noob, I will ask the question:

    What is PDF Rebranding?

    I make my documents in Open Office and then just use the export to PDF option. Is there a step I'm missing?

    James,
    PDF Rebranding is a tool that merchants use to provide a promotional PDF for their affiliates. The PDF contains a link or several links that are specially coded so that the rebranding software can replace the link with an affiliate link. Typically, the rebranding software along with the PDF is downloaded by the affiliate, he or she inputs their own affiliate link and then the software substitutes the link in the PDF with the affiliate's link and spits out the "rebranded" version. Then the affiliate gives away the report to their subscribers, friends, followers, etc.

    Hi Kurt -- welcome to the forum!

    Viral PDF Silver Edition is $67. You can get it at: affiliate link | direct link

    This is a Windows based software program. It creates an .exe file that you send to your affiliates, so they also need to install it on their computer.

    I've just gotten a new solution called Viral PDF Generator which is server based for you and your affiliates. You upload a PDF or ODT file with special tags and then your affiliates are directed to a web page to drop in their affiliate ID, website, name, etc. and then they download the rebranded report.

    The page that you send affiliates to can be on your own website or within your Affiliate Tools Page plugin toolbox using iframes. You can learn more about VPG at: affiliate link | direct link

    I just saw this yesterday, a rebranding solution used now by Charlie Page. Unfortunately it involves a monthly fee. The upside is... well a lot: no more do you have to download something which (as a Mac user) typically works only on a PC. The entire process is handled online and can be used in many ways. I'm not ready for it yet, but I made a note of it: http://www.simplyrebranded.com/

    It includes hosting the rebranded document on their site. Literally the receiver enters what needs to be rebranded in a form, and submits. They are then given (a) a download link, and (b) a link to give to THEIR OWN followers to download the rebranded document. As the receiver of this Charlie Page / now rebranded with my affiliate code document, I don't need to upload it anywhere, create my own download site.... nothing. I just email out the link (ie, b above) and I'm good to go.

    I would say if you plan to rebrand several documents, it's worth it because the viral effect has to be tons better simply because there is NO work for the follower.

    Clarification - this is not Charlie's business. It just happened to be how I discovered it. I have no idea who is behind it.

    The service I mentioned above works the same way except you have a choice to pay monthly or pay a one-time fee.

    Chris, --- aha! I missed it because I was reading the first paragraph only, saw "exe" file and skipped. But Your 2nd option is similar then.
