How to get JV Partners to Maximize your Sales

How to get JV Partners to Maximize your Sales

How to get JV Partners to Maximize your Sales

Its no secret that JVs (joint ventures) and cross promotions are one of the most productive ways to make high volumes of sales on the Internet.

Today I want to talk about why they work so well, and how you can make the most of them to explode your online income.

Traditionally, JVs are most common between two people who have created a product and are selling it online. But that needn’t be the case and I will tell you shortly of a way in which
you can get all the benefits, traffic and sales of a JV without even having a product of your own.

But first lets look at the principals of it:
What actually happens in a JV cross-promotion?

Webites promote other websites for two main reasons:

1. To earn income from commission sales.

2. To pay, or earn, favors.

The first of these you might expect, the second is more intricate.

You see, when you’re running an online business, your options and your growth are restricted if you try doing it all on your own.

Sure, there’s pay-per-click advertising, article marketing, traffic exchangers, and a variety of ways you can draw traffic to your site by paying for it.

But nothing beats personal recommendation.

Its human nature: We all prefer to buy through personal recommendation than by enticing advertisements.

And JV’s, or cross-promotions are all about personal recommendation.

The only thing is – as every super-affiliate knows – even if you’re offering attractive commission rates, the site that’s getting promoted always gets more out of the deal than
the JV partner who’s doing the promoting.

Look at this comparision:

The JV partner doing the promotion gets:

1. A ‘notional’ favor from the site it promotes.
2. Commission payments, hopefully paid in good time but always at the discretion of the site owner.

The site being promoted gets:

1. Lots of new list members
2. Lots of Sales
3. Lots of recognition

Which would you rather?

Can you see now why the benefit isn’t split evenly in a JV deal?

This is one of the reasons why it is more difficult than many people think to get JV partners promoting for you.

No matter how attractive your commission percentages are, you will always be getting more out of the deal than your JV partner. Especially if your landing page is a list-building squeeze
page.

But there is an option available. Especially if your aim is to build a list.

You could run a Viral Spiral site.

Viral Spiral is a webserver script that gives you a complete solution for building a list and a business online.

One of its features is that it turns the above JV example on its head to provide more of a win-win for both parties. Here’s what you can do with it:

As a listbuilder, you can offer a squeeze page for your JV partner to promote. He then sends his list to the squeeze page, where they sign up to your list.

Then, this is when it gets interesting:

Your JV partner can decide which offer page his signups are directed to after signup.

Gone is the traditional method whereby once his leads have signed up to you they’re yours, to direct wherever you like. With MVS, your JV partner can choose what to show them *after*
they’ve joined your list…

It might be to his own product, or an affiliate link somewhere else – or he may choose to use his affiliate link for your product (in keeping with the normal method).

The point is, your JV partner has more say about who benefits from his promotion and how. And that kind of power makes all the difference when it comes to getting others to promote for you, and build your list.

This is one of many characteristics of Viral Spiral that make it well worth a good look if you want to start building JV relationships.

List Building – 3 Breakthrough Steps To A Responsive Subscriber List (Part 1)

I’ve always been impressed with those people who could build a list of 5,000 subscribers then give up their day job. All because their list was so responsive to any offer they made them.

Then I figured out their secret and boiled it down into 3 easy to follow breakthrough steps.

Step 1: Make sure you’re using a professionally hosted autoresponder service like GetResponse.com.

This is where you have to spend some money because your entire business will depend on the reliability of your email system.

What you want to avoid are the free autoresponder services, because as you become more successful at list building the more there is at risk.

Your professionally hosted autoresponder will do 3 things, it’ll be easier for your subscribers to manage their subscription with you. More of your emails will get through to them. And you’ll be able to track your results more effectively.

Step 2: As soon as a subscriber joins your list ask them a question in their first email. The question would be something like… “what’s your single biggest problem about (enter your subject here)”.

Then you use the feedback you get from your subscribers to decide what content and offers you should be sending to them.

Step 3: Write a full months worth of follow-up email messages to add to your autoresponder that’s a 50/50 mix of content and offers.

In step 2 we asked your new subscriber a question, now we take their questions and answer them to replace and build on your first months worth of follow-up messages.

Your answers to their questions gives you your content. And you’ll also know exactly what products to recommend and offers to make that help them solve their problems.

As you create more content just add it to your autoresponder. Eventually you’ll have an autoresponder with at least a years worth of content, recommendations and offers.

When you follow these steps you’ll soon find that people will be more likely to listen to you and take your advice.

Will you be able to give up your day job too? That’s down to how well you can put these steps into action and how good you are at building your list.

Now you know how to make your list more responsive all that’s left is to get more subscribers to join your list by focusing on your list building.

ListHero is the fastest, easiest, simplest way to build your list.
