Joint Venture Secrets

What do you get when you combine your resources with another business owner’s resources?A joint venture …and one very powerful (free) way to promote your website. These things come in all shapes and sizes, and when you do it right, they’re mutually beneficial ways to get more traffic and sales.

If you want to develop effective traffic generation strategies like this, keep in mind that you have to be looking out for them as much as you expect them to be looking out for you.

Side Note: Although we commonly think of joint ventures as ways to enhance traffic generation, you can also use them to create products together, too.

How you form a joint venture is limited to your own imagination, it’s not that complicated.

For instance, you may wanna:

·Take turns endorsing each other in your newsletters or on your blogs.

· Encourage your new subscribers to sign up for your partner’s newsletter too (and vice versa).

·Swap simple links on your sites for search engine purposes.

·Include each other’s brochures in your postal mailings.

·Offer exclusive discounts and bonus products to each other’s customers or newsletter subscribers.

·Create and market a product together, like a one hour teleseminar.

·Trade articles and place them on your respective blogs or web page.

·Trade links on your download pages and newsletter thank you pages.

·Trade links in your free and bonus reports.

·Trade bonus reports (ensure your report has links leading back to your site).

·Offer each other special deals for promoting one another’s products, such as high commissions not available to anyone else, plus a special offer for customers.

…and anything else that you can think of that would be mutually beneficial.

So how do you do joint ventures?

First of all, start thinkin’ about who you could team up with in your niche.

Stop looking at your fellow marketers as competitors, and start looking at them as potential partners instead.Seriously, some of your best partners will be those who you thought were your biggest competitors.

Next, you need to start building relationships with these people. Helping other people get what they want is the quickest way to get what you want.

Generally that’s the best way to get the attention of a busy marketer, you’re both looking for new traffic generation strategies; but you’re both busy doing other things.

Think about it . . . if they have limited time in the day (like we all do), which emails in their inbox, and which joint ventures, are going to get priority?The ones from people they recognize will catch their eye first, it’s a no brainer; but like I said, you’ve got to be looking out for other people too!

You build relationships by getting the person’s attention, first.That means attending offline seminars, maybe providing income for them by opting to become an affiliate in their business, interacting on their forums and blogs, and just getting out there, becoming known in your niche.

Having said all that, whether or not you actually build a relationship first with your potential joint venture partners or not, the last step is always the same: you need to create an attractive proposal.

When you propose the idea to your potential partner, you focus on what benefits they are gonna receive if they decide to opt in.

You gotta remember, they don’t necessarily care about you.They don’t care about the fact that you want to make more money, drive more traffic to your site, and build your list. When it comes right down to it, all they care about is themselves, their products, their website, and their customers.

Your proposal letter should focus on what’s in it for them, and how their website and customers will benefit.

Will they get more traffic?Will they make more money?Will your partnership help them build their list?Will your offer raise their status in the niche?

Don’t underestimate the benefits of stroking someone’s ego!

Remember . . .you’re essentially writing a sales letter.That means before you even approach your potential partners, you’ve gotta put yourself in their shoes, find out what’s important to them. What makes them tick?What motivates them?

Once you figure out their “hot buttons,” then you can (gently push) encourage them to partner with you. As long as it’s beneficial to them there shouldn’t be an issue.

Most of all remember this (especially when you’re dealing with a partner that has a lot to offer), you need them more than they need you.Just be sure sure to make them an offer they can’t refuse.

The bigger the partner and the more they have to offer, the more you should tilt the deal in their favor.
