How to find the right JV partners

When it comes to Internet marketing, there are certain advantages to going out on your own. Since you are working online, it’s probably likely that you don’t know many people in your immediate circle of friends who have the training and understanding of Internet marketing that you do. For that reason it’s natural to gravitate toward being a “lone wolf” in your business. However if you want to reach new heights in your marketing career, you need to reach out and work with others. This is most commonly in the form of a joint venture partnership.

Joint venture partnerships, or JVs, are a good way to collaborate with another experienced marketer and allow you both to use your strengths to make more money. For example, if you’ve got experience in a particular niche and your JV partner has experience launching products, you can work together in order to create a product for that specific niche. There are literally dozens of ways that you can work with another marketer in order for you both to make more money.

Once you’ve decided that you are ready to find a joint venture partner there are many places you can use to find one.

1. Offline events

Many online marketers try to do all of their networking online. However if you want to increase your network and get some incredible training you should think about investing in attending an offline event. There are several available each year in every major part of the country. By attending an offline event and meeting with others you’ll be able to find quality joint venture partners who are willing to put as much into a business as you are. Since they’ve taken that extra step and have attended an event offline, you know that they are in this business for the long haul.

2. Clickbank and affiliate networks

Marketers who have listed their products for sale on clickbank and affiliate networks can be prime targets for JV partnerships. You may want to lay the groundwork for this relationship by promoting their existing products. If you get a great deal of affiliate business for them, they’ll be more likely to listen to your JV proposal.

3. Search engines and directories

Sometimes, depending on the niche that you are working in, it makes more sense to go directly to marketers who are already well-established sites in that niche. For example you can partner with a marketer that has a large informative site on a particular topic and then offer them exclusive promotion rights to a new product that you have. Use search engines and website directories in order to find appropriate sites and site owners to contact.

4. JV notification sites

JV-Network and JV-NotifyPro are both joint venture broker sites that allow you to connect directly with people who are interested in JV partnerships. You can sign up for these sites and announce your own product and your interest in JVs or you can look for opportunities to partner with people who already have products out there.

Any of these ideas will give you several potential JV partners that you can work with in order to increase profits for both of you.

  • Good article although I want to add this in. When using Clickbank to find marketers to JV with, do your research about them or their products. Some of the top marketing products on Clickbank are run by marketers who don't use their real names. This raises a huge red flag and for good reason. I recommend only promoting products of marketers who use their real names, pictures and videos of themselves and those who have built up a following through trust.

  • Hi Darren,

    Great information! I just launched my first membership site. I was VERY blessed and privileged to work with some awesome experienced marketers who were a great help to me. I received a great deal of support and my site and ebook was very well received as a result. My membership continues to grow. One thing I learned was that when you get ready to launch your own site, you really learn who your friends are.

    • Hey Nina – that's really awesome! You did it right on the first try, that's very rare.

      To your continued success,


  • Thanks for the information, Darren! I especially agree with the first point regarding attending offline events. It seems that everyone has their own product to promote and aren’t necessarily looking for another, however, if you meet new people, build that relationship and become friends, then they are more apt to JV and help you because you are a friend. Therefore, I am glad to see that you included that as your first point…thereby emphasizing the importance of offline networking and building relationships.

    Keep up the good work, Darren!



  • Great article and the information is spot on, Darren!

    As usual, you hit the nail on the head. I also agree with Justin about the Clickbank products.

    JV's have been critical to our online success and can be for anyone willing to get out there.

    Darren, the only thing I'd add to this post is a video of you talking about this subject. This way YOU can talk to YOUR readers and your readers get to see you live 🙂

    Thanks for being such a great leader in this industry, Darren.

    • Thanks Janet, Speaking of JV's – you've been great to me and I appreciate everything you do!

  • Well Hello Darren!
    I totally agree with using
    search engines – That's pretty much the
    only way I've established my business
    the past few years. When looking for JV's
    you definitely have a much higher
    success rate when partnering with those
    whom you know will put 100% into the venture.
    More times than not because SEO can be
    difficult and tricky those who have built their
    business that way are the ones to make your
    offers to. They don't mind the learning process
    nor the hard work it takes to become successful.

  • Thansk for the info Darren. I own my own programs and would like to possibly do a joint program one day with somebody like yourself.
