Joint venture arrangements with other, more experienced, Internet marketers is a great way for new home business owners online to get established quickly by building their email list and making sales. However, sometimes getting someone to agree to this arrangement can be easier said than done and this can turn into a long, drawn out process. So how can you expedite the procedure so you can get accepted for one of these contracts much sooner rather than later or, not at all?
There are several guidelines you should follow which should increase the possibility that you and your Internet enterprise will soon be working with well established and successful business people online.
1. When you approach your potential partners you must do so with an attractive offer so they’ll at least take the time to consider your proposal before making a decision one way or the other.
You should always over deliver in terms of what you’ll give the other business owner for access to their email list because, after all, you’re the new kid on the block and you should always keep that in mind during the process. Of course you should always be respectful and courteous throughout and always be patient and never force the issue.
2. It may take some time before you find someone to agree to your proposal so you shouldn’t become discouraged when you receive a negative response, because you are going to get them. When someone does refuse, if possible, ask why they couldn’t agree to the arrangement and when you find out why then you should consider revising your offer before approaching another possible partner.
3. Make sure you’re clear and concise about what you’re offering to your potential joint venture partner so they’ll understand exactly what they’re going to receive in exchange for access to their customer list. You have to remember they’re giving up a lot and understandably they will be hesitant to turn their clients over to a complete stranger without receiving something very special in return.
4. One final tip would be not to appear too anxious and risk the chance of being taken advantage of by giving up too much for the agreement to happen. You should always keep in mind why you want this arrangement and what you really need for it to take place.
You should never lose sight of your long term goals by sacrificing them for short term gain. Always approach these people with the confidence of a successful home business owner who knows what she wants but also respects the position of their potential partner.
If you follow these suggestions while remaining consistent and persistent you should find the joint venture partners you need to help promote your home business online.
