Hey there. Daven Michaels, I’m coming to you from the beautiful beaches of Bali, Indonesia. Today I want to talk to you for a couple of minutes about joint ventures. Now, what are joint ventures? It’s like an affiliate arrangement, basically it’s you working with other affiliate partners. They’re going to market your service but we call them JV partners because they’re bigger, they have larger lists. Here’s a question for you: are there businesses that are complimentary to your niche that might benefit from marketing your product or service to their clients and prospects? The answer is absolutely. How do you do this? Step number one: you want to have an affiliate program in place. I think we’ve sent out emails on that before, contact our office if you need some help with that.
Then, you want to do some research on Google and look up businesses who you think have clients and prospects that would be a match for your product or service. Does that make sense? Okay, now once you have that, and for those particular niches look at the top of the Google list. Those are going to be the marketers in the group. These are going to be the ones, the savvy marketers with the big lists. Now, what you want to do is contact these people. I would suggest that you actually don’t contact them on your own, have somebody do it for you. We always recommend a virtual assistant; we’re trained to do this. Have someone contact them and set up 15-minute phone appointments on your Google calendar so that your time is only spent making these joint venture deals. Anything else is below your pay grade.
Once you make the deal, as long as it’s complimentary, these people will blast out for you. It’ll build your list. It’ll build your bank account. It’s a great way to get more business and it doesn’t cost you any money. So, that’s how you do it. If you need more information on this, contact our office. Our people are trained in doing this. They can help you set up joint ventures. Until next time, this is Daven Michaels. I hope you’re living your true-life adventure. Bye for now.
