What joint ventures would you like to develop?Views: 362

One of the great things about networking groups is the ability to hook up and work together.

What do you do or sell that could work in a joint venture with other members of this network? A joint venture is a win-win situation - both sides give and both sides get.

For example, I have a 102-page niche marketing course for home business owners that I can offer as a bonus if you're trying to get a book higher up in Amazon.com's rankings.

In fact, I just joint ventured with Joe Rubino's newest book release... I sent his information out in my February 15 newsletter http://www.newradiance.com/newsletterarchives.htm and Joe is sending his book buyers to my website to pick up their free bonus. The tradeoff is traffic to each of our websites and more sales of Joe's book.

Have you thought about the kind of trading you can do with your products and services to get more publicity, website traffic, sales?

Have fun!

I think that's a great idea...and one I have been giving a lot of thought to since it came up on another network I'm part of. The question I have is it seems like you need a big mailing list to approach someone to do that kind of venture. I would love to get my book higher at Amazon, but since I am just beginning to build my list I can't offer exposure so I'm unclear about what I would offer the other person. Any suggestions anyone???

Hi Celeste:

How this Amazon thing works is... you use other people's mailing lists. I was phoned by the George Harrison book promoter and emailed by Joe Rubino to ask if they could promote their offer to MY list.

In return, I got a mention on the Harrison book website (which won't get significant traffic until the book launch, by the way - and at that point, it'll get a bunch, which makes the trade worthwhile) and I was one of the free bonuses (with my affiliate links and coaching info) in the ebook I provided Rubino.

The Harrison book started with zero emails and ended up with multiple list owners and 300,000 on their mailing next week. The Geo Harrison promoter probably isn't sending any emails at all, except as reminders to those of us with lists. It's the other people's lists that will send the big traffic to your bonus page. Neat idea, huh?

Takes some legwork to line up your partners who will do your emailing for you and provide you with free bonuses to offer with the purchase of your book. But you also have a couple of things you can sweeten the pot with. In addition to a mention on your bonus page, how about a quickie ad with your daily nuggets? Or free classified ads in your Yahoo group emails during your book promotion period?

Just want to make sure the folks you're JVing with are somehow related to what you're offering, so your clients won't wonder what's up.

I would imagine there are people here on Ryze you could JV with.

Happy marketing!

Thanks Barbara...I definitely need to give this some thought. Sounds like it might be fun too. Celeste
