How to Approach Potential JVs

meeting-1019875_640Okay in my past post I mentioned How NOT to approach JVs,so if you haven’t read it make sure you do, since this post is the flip side of that. Here I’ll be giving a few tips on how you should approach potential JVs and that worked for me when I launched my product Auction Profits Exposed.

  1. The worst thing you can do when approaching JVs is send a generic email or FB message to them and say I have a product, can you promote it. You need to connect with them and make your messages personal, by making it personal the potential JV will actually sit up and listen since it will not be the boring junk they get every day.
  1. Do your homework before you before you reach out to someone, and when I say do your homework, I mean check out their online business, sign up to their emails, check them out on Facebook, see what they do etc. See if they are a right fit for you, as well.
  1. Buy their products – Yes, BUY their products, not just their front end product but their up sells, okay I don’t mean buy every single one but buying their latest products and then contact them to give a customer testimonial of the product. They would really appreciate it, make you stand out of the crowd and get their attention.
  1. Remember it’s NOT about YOU or your product, it’s about what you can do for your potential JV, before even mentioning your product ask how you can help them. If they need a blog post done or an email campaign written, or something else, do for them for free. Everyone has a price, it’s about knowing what that price is, and I don’t mean it in money sense. Yes it will cost you in time but in the long run it will pay off.
  1. Joining Facebook groups where you could build potential JV partner and give value in those groups, this helps you to get noticed so when you do announce your product people will be more than happy to check it out and more likely to promote your product.

Okay, I hope that helps, I know there are a ton of other stuff that you can do, but here I just wanted to mention the ones that really helped me. Please share any more tips that have helped you in getting potential JVs.

      Thank you Barry, Glad you found the points useful 🙂

  • Proof that I come from a different era. A JV to me is completely different that a marketing arrangement. But, I did learn from this. Thanks.

    Great article post, dude! You have an excellent understanding of your topic and you had discussed it so well. I also think that generic emails are a real turn-off when approaching JVs.

    Ahh some excellent points here Tasleem. It drives me crazy when folks just pop up on FB messenger and demand I look at their product, especially when I don’t know them.
