"7 Insider Tips To Joint Venture Success"
by: Ewen Chia
Most marketers miss out on huge chunks of available profits by not doing enough joint ventures.
It's the easiest way to leverage on resources you wouldn't otherwise have.
There're probably two reasons why joint ventures are not used fully. These are the fear of work and fear of failure. But do you know, you've failed in the first place by having this mindset?
While I'm not here to preach, I do want to emphasize, no marketer is ever an island. You've got to leverage your time and resources with fellow marketers to improve yourself and to maximize your success.
The magic word here is leverage.
Leverage everything you do, including joint venture, which is one of the most powerful forms of leverage you can ever tap on.
Carry this mindset as you read the rest of this article and apply the 7 basic tips as revealed...
These are the things I learned from my own joint venture experiences and I want to share them with you. It's not just airy talk. I've done it.
For example, if you want to discover how I got 19 top marketers on my side for a product like "Resale Rights Secrets" http://ResaleRightsSecrets.com, keep your eyes to this article as mentioned.
If you're all set to create profitable joint ventures, here are the top 7 insider tips to get them going:
Tip 1: Be Sincere And Build Relationships
I live by the principle that basic courtesy and sincerity is a must in any relationship, especially with your joint venture partners.
Be sincere. Be courteous. Be honest.
Trust begets trust.
Don't look at your potential partner as just someone you can tap on, builf the contact with sincerity and friendliness.
This way you can build a relationship to last a lifetime, as opposed to a one-time partnership.
Tip 2: Think Long-Term
This follows closely to the above setting of building relationships.
You can joint venture continuously whenever each one has a beneficial product or promotion. The key's to create joint ventures for life, not just once off.
Tip 3: Don't Give Up
I know it's disappointing when you don't get responses from potential joint ventures partners. But don't forsake the cause because of a few failures, you may never know when you hit the goldmine.
It's the same as looking for a job. While you won't get every interview you sent out for, getting the one good one is what's important.
Spread your eggs and just do it. Contact as many potential partners as you can and you'll surely get results.
Tip 4: Always Be On The Lookout For Opportunities
Another way to make joint ventures work for you is to participate in them instead. Like yourself, many marketers are also looking for partners to work with, the problem's where do you find them?
Forums. Forums are the absolute best places to network and seek like-minded people for potential joint ventures.
There's no advertising cost and you can be on the frontline of new opportunities simply by scanning forums in your niche.
Here's a list of high traffic marketing forums you can tap on: http://www.expage.com/hightrafficforums
Or simply join the internet marketers' inner circle group called the Warrior Forum. The exposure and benefits you can get from there are tremendous.
While it's a private forum, you can get a complimentary secret pass through "Money & Power: An Interview With Allen Says".
Allen's also the founder of the Warrior Forum and you can find him actively moderating the forum there too: http://InstantMarketingSecrets.com/moneypower/
Tip 5: Be Clear In Your Communication
When you're approaching potential joint venture partners, it's very important not to beat about the bush or sound overly hyped-up.
Tell them the basic proposal and what they can gain, and leave out the big details unless they request for more information.
The phrase "Short, Sweet And Simple" couldn't be more relevant here.
Tip 6: Be Different
In order to get profitable joint ventures set up, you need to be different.
This is especially true if you were to approach the big names. They get tons of joint venture proposals daily, and what's to make them accept yours?
Be different. Give them something others are not offering.
I really personalize my proposals and lay out the biggest benefits they can get…out of a one-time effort.
For example, one major benefit out of many I gave was master resale rights and 100% p.rofits for "Resale Rights Secrets" http://ResaleRightsSecrets.com
No one was doing what I did, so it became unique.
Tip 7: Be Irresistible
The last thing I learned was the importance of packaging irresistible offers, even for joint ventures partners.
Treat them like the customer. Create irresistible deals to get the joint venture going. Provide a host of benefits and be responsive. Every one enjoys being treated well, especially valued joint venture partners.
Well I'll be rounding up here, hope you found these tips to be useful. Now go for those joint ventures!
