JV Partnerships are one of the most powerful tactics for getting traffic and building your list in internet marketing, but where do you start..?
If you’re just beginning and don’t have a list or product then that’s really where you need to start.
JV’s are usually based on a relationship that you’ve built up with the prospective JV partner, but you still need to be able to offer something of value, good JV partnerships are never “one sided”, and you want to make them as good an offer for your new partner as possible, as it should be seen as the start of a long term relationship/friendship, not just a “one off” thing…

I earn a living online, and promoting things to my subscribers is a significant part of that income, although I am fortunate (or maybe I’ve just been doing this long enough) that I have enough other income streams (always important for a healthy business) that I don’t have to rely on this one method of making money, which grants me a certain degree of freedom, as I mentioned in my last post.
