I’m planning my next joint venture. Are you thinking of doing one too?
I LOVE to collaborate and co-create and I’ve been the ring-leader and cheer-leader behind dozens and dozens of ‘em. A lot of people ask me how I do it.
If you really want to enjoy the rewards of successful joint venture marketing (and there are many) here are five things to think about and do…
1) Get Serious!
Seriously! Pull up your socks, roll up your sleeves and make a firm decision to get joint ventures working for you in new and powerful ways!
Simply making the decision to leverage this high ROI strategy opens your mind and heart to new opportunities and new relationships.
The pieces start to fall into place ~ not by magic ~ rather, your decision jump starts your brain and it gets to work figuring out how to make it happen (okay, sometimes that can be quite magical!).
2) BE the kind of joint venture partner you’d like to attract.
One of the best ways to learn the lay of the land is to participate in other people’s joint ventures (or sign up as an affiliate for one).
You can get an inside glance at their systems and promotional materials. And, what goes around comes around… it’s the doing that will get the laws of attraction and reciprocity working in your favour!
This can also be a great way to get on the radar of the experts you’d like to partner with (before you invite them to play which is SO important).
3) Get into the game.
Not sure WHO to joint venture with or HOW to put an attractive joint venture program together? You’re not alone.
My best advice? Stop sitting on the sidelines. In addition to participating in joint ventures, become a student of joint venture marketing.
Read books; search the web; listen to tele-seminars; take a course; find a mentor or coach. Identify the gaps and barriers holding you back and start learning exactly what you need to know to be empowered to take action.
4) Leverage tried and true strategies – in a way that fits YOU.
You can dramatically increase your odds of success by understanding proven systems and processes.
Master the rules, then create your own.
This will allow you to present your ideas in a unique vs cookie-cutter way.
It’s not about blindly doing what worked for others, it’s about understanding why it worked and then applying the principles at play to you and what you do!
5) Brainstorm and Mastermind with other joint-venturous women.
Imagine the momentum and success you can create with a community of like-minded, supportive, caring women cheering you on, and taking action to do what they can to support your success.
One of the best places to find these communities is Facebook. Do a search of pages and groups on topics relevant to you and what you do. Like pages, join groups and most of all – participate in and contribute to the conversation.
It sounds incredible doesn’t it?
So what are you waiting for? There are SO many reasons to be joint-venturous!
Do you have any tips you’d add to this list? I’d love for you to share them in the comments.
