What Do I Do If I Have No List With a Variety of Products?
Starting out as a newbie online takes a lot of focus. You may have many ideas, but it's important to plan ahead and structure your business carefully so that you do not get side tracked or lose sight of your main goals. If you have your own online business, you're going to need to launch your products to make the most money. But if you do not have a list, this will be difficult to do. That is where joint ventures also known as JV's come into play. JV's are basically partnerships that you make with another website owner. You build a relationship, where they send out an announcement to their list about your product for a portion of the sale.
It's not only important to establish JV partnerships, but it's also important to make deals that are worthwhile for your partner. So, for example, you may offer them a 50% commission on the sale of any of your products. If any sales are made from their email announcement about your product, you get money without lifting a finger. This is a win-win situation for both parties. Not only do you make money, but they make money as well, simply because they told their audience about your product. Of course your JV partner needs to be involved in the same market as you and have a list of prospects already interested in your product. It is necessary as this will ensure that your market is well targeted.
Another key piece of advice if you've established a joint venture partnership is to ensure that you supply your JV partner with the exact email verbiage you'd like them to send out. You want them to do as little work as possible. And because they own their list, you need to make their job as effortless as it can be simply because you're the one looking to make money. You also want to build your own list, so it definitely needs to be a win-win situation for both parties. If you can provide the exact subject line and email content that has been split tested to work and has a strong conversion rate, there is no reason why you should not be able to make some decent sales.
