How NOT to Approach JV Partners

shops-1019981_640In this small blog post I’ll be explaining how not to approach JV partners. You see many posts that explain to do get it (don’t worry in my next post I’ll give some tips that helped me get JVs on board) but I want give a few tips on how NOT to approach them.

But before I dive into I just want say I’ve been exceptionally busy after my successful launch of Auction Products Exposed and I have slightly neglected this site and not put up many posts. 🙁
I’m currently working on next product which I’m obviously excited about, so watch this space  🙂

Anyway, without getting side tracked after my launch I have been approached by many people to promote their products – these were people I didn’t know coming out of nowhere. Which kind of promoted me to write this blog post.

So you’ve created and you want to launch it. So you approach JV partner asking I’m launching tomorrow can you promote for me? Or I’m launching next week can you promote for me?

That’s one think you can’t do!! Don’t expect a JV partner to come on board at such short notice. This is where many new Internet Marketers get wrong. They spend weeks, months sometimes even years creating their product when they come to launch it. It flops, because they have forgotten the “marketing” side of internet marketing. So when their product flops they think Internet Marketing is just a waste of time and give up.

Don’t sent a friend request to a potential JV partner just to instantly message them as soon as they accept your friend request about your product and hope they will promote it, if you have not built a relationship with them that’s like cold calling.

Don’t use a template to email all your potential JV partners, they will see through it!! You have to make it personal, make a personal email to each JV partner.

Don’t take rejection personally if someone turned you down, don’t go ranting about it on Facebook.

Don’t approach JV’s with the thought of what they can do for you, approach a potential JV Partner with the thought of what you can do for them and how to help in THEIR business.

Okay I said I will keep it sort.

Write in the comments below your “DON’Ts” about approaching potential JVs.

Until Next Time

    Hi Tasleem,
    Short but extremely valuable information.

    I have created my iwn product but as yet have not worked out the best way to market it so this post was very timely for me.

    Also looking forward to your next post to learn from you how you went about successfully marketing your product.

    Many thanks for such a great share and good to see you back again.

    Tasleem, I totally agree with your post. As with all internet marketing activities, you have to get people to know, like and trust you.

    All that you say is common sense but it is surprising how many people just charge in (and then wonder why it doesn’t work).

    Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Gill,

      Thank you for your comment, it’s a shame people don’t use their common sense and just chase the JV partner.

  • Hi Tasleem

    Such words of wisdom! Yes, you often see marketers ranting in Facebook about folks who do exactly as you say not to do!

    Great to have the list all in one place!

    This is good advice.

    I personally as a marketer get annoyed at immediate pitches.

    It wreaks of get rich quick schemers.

    Good write up Tasleem

    Hi Tasleem,

    Those are great tips for finding JV partners.

    When I released my product I found it very difficult to get JV partners who actually did what they promised to do – which was promote the product 🙂

    With hindsight – a wonderful thing – I should have provided good promotional material and done a more personal approach. I left it rather to chance by just letting people find my site on the marketing platform when perhaps I should have approached my existing contacts personally.

    Never mind – we live and learn.
