When I first started out in online business (coming on 7 years now) I was one of the most annoying people you could have met on your travels. If you knew your business facts‚ I’d ask you about everything you can possibly think of‚ from list maintenance‚ making sales‚ traffic‚ joint venturing‚ you name it‚ I would have asked you. It’s this single factor that I attribute to the success I’ve seen online.
There was always one question though that I was particularly interested in.
It was a simple one‚ although not quite as simple to answer as it was to ask. This question was “Hey‚ I saw the massive launch of your site the other day. I hear you secured a circulation of almost half a million on launch day‚ how did you manage it?”. Apologies to those in that I asked this over and over again‚ every single time they launched a product‚ but hey who wouldn’t‚ after all‚ what would a circulation of half a million on your product launches mean for your sales? Anyway..
The answer was always the same.
Joint ventures they told me. So my next question was “Right‚ so you go out and find all those who are successful‚ and send them offers and deals trying to get access to their promotion material for free right?”. I always got a straight answer to that one. ‘Yes’. That is‚ always but once. There was only one guy that gave me the full story.
What he told me changed the way I approached successful joint venturing forever. Here’s what he said to me;
“Oh no‚ definitely not. That’s what everyone else is doing and what everyone else is teaching. If you could see how many annoyed list owners I speak to every day that keep getting hundreds of useless deals every week‚ wasting their time and really getting on their nerves‚ you’d probably go so red in the face with embarrassment‚ you’d never do that again”.
So‚ what’s the answer?
The conversation continued. “So if all these list owners are annoyed at the piles of useless offers‚ that would mean that very few are actually being noticed‚ or even accepted. So if I wanted to secure massive launch day circulations for products like you do‚ how would I go about it?”
I’ll tell you on one condition he said..
“You promise not to tell anyone else for 12 months. Let me get my big name contacts and my huge circulations and secure my long term deals first‚ then you can tell who you like if these methods still work”. I agreed. My business has changed beyond recognition for the better simply because of the techniques this guy taught me in about 30 minutes.
I’ve honed this technique‚ stress tested it‚ pushed it to it’s limits and out came what I now know as the most successful‚ and most efficient methods of securing massive product launch circulations through joint ventures that I’ve ever seen. The concepts are simple‚ but the power this grants is immense.
