Recruiting JV Partners - Sage Advice from Mark Widawer

My friend Mark Widawer sent out some GREAT advice about how to get JV Partners to work with you.

I liked what he had to say A LOT, so I'm re-posting here.

Again, if you're looking for JV partners, this is GREAT Advice!

(The only thing I would add to it is to say that a great way to get someone to become a JV and promote your stuff, is to become an affiliate for their products and services and promote their stuff first.)

I have one big Internet marketer I've been bugging for almost a year now to get his affiliate program set up so that I can be a JV and promote his stuff.

I've never promoted for him, because his affiliate program doesn't work at the moment, but I send him an email about once a month to say that I'd really like to be a JV for him, and to ask when his affiliate program will be up and running.

He always responds back and lets me know that he appreciates my persistence and is glad that I want to JV with him.

I'm not annoying about it, just a gentle reminder.

When it comes time to ask for help promoting my stuff, do you think he might be more receptive to it than if I approach him out of the blue?

Of course!

Mark Widawer has another suggestion for getting JV partners - and that is right below.

Ever send emails to potential JV partners and never get a reply back?

Here's how to get around that problem, and to truly and genuinely be known as a "Giver," too.

Go to live events. LOTS of them. And make sure you take your digital camera with you. Meet as many potential JV partners as you can, and take a picture of yourself with them. Heck, you can even take some pics of them with other potential partners. Any photo of them is a good thing.

When you get back home, email them the photos. In this first email, don't mention your JV opportunity at all. Just send them the photos, and tell them "If there's anything I can ever do to help maybe help promote YOUR products...please let me know."

They'll most certainly reply with a Thank You for both the photo and the offer. And more than likely, they'll also ask you to let them know when they can help you.

And you know how to reply to that request already.

What you have heard is true...if you help enough people to get what they want, they'll bend over backwards to help you have what YOU want.

To Your Success,

--Mark Widawer
