How do you fast-forward your way into a joint venture business?
Within your target market, find a business or company that has a website or its very own ezine. Approach and ask them if they want to join your affiliate program and if it would be possible for you to promote what you are offering on their site or ezine.
In return for this, offer to give your product for free. If you have your own ezine or website, offer to promote something for them also. Try to make an offer that they will find irresistible.
Make use of your very own subscribers and visitors. Nothing like giving out something for free to make them come running to your site. In these freebies, put your advertisement. It does not have to be too obvious. A subtle ad that has a link back to you is more than enough.
Using this technique, you will have an advertisement of yourself spread everywhere. Both you and your visitor get to benefit from this style. By giving some of your own, you will get more than what is expected.
Do not get into a losing competition. You cannot always win them all. Why not join them? Look for others having the same business as yours and form your own...
