If you absolutely want to INSPIRE More People, IMPACT Others in a Big Way and Create a New Level of INCOME, now is the perfect time to start doing just that.
Let me be crystal clear that if you are ready to take your speaking to an entirely new level and get out there in a bigger way via speaking opportunities, you have to start doing things that you haven’t done before.
I know from personal experience that you can reach more people when you align yourself with individuals who have the same commitment, dedication and integrity that you do, especially if you align yourself with individuals that have a “Big Reach” meaning they have a extensive list of fans and followers that love them.
Over the last couple of years, I have been approached by many individuals to create Joint Venture Partnerships with them, aka JV, and Strategic Alliances that have included presenting at their live events, creating training products for their clients and groups and being interviewed by them for promotional purposes.
I love fantastic Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliance relationships because as a result of these amazing connections, I get to help individuals that I might have never met if it wasn’t for my wonderful JV partners.
When the right JV Partnership comes along, it can be incredibly rewarding and beneficial to both parties. When done well, it ends up being a total win-win-win for your JV partners, for your business growth and for all the wonderful clients and groups that get to learn from you.
JV Partnerships and Strategic Speaking Alliances can come in many forms including:
* Speaking Events
* Tele-Seminar Opportunities
* Radio Interviews
* Advanced Training Programs
* Event Sponsorships
* New Product or Program Launches
* Referral and Affiliate Programs
If you are eager to get out there and present on bigger stages and reach more people, I highly recommend that you add this to your current marketing plan and start focusing on the power of Joint Ventures.
To help you tap into the power of JV opportunities, I wanted to share 3 of my absolute favorite Joint Venture Insider Tips. I love these tips because they have helped my clients and I create JV partnerships that have absolutely exceeded our expectations and ensured we reach our goals when it came to impact and income.
JV Insider Tip 1: It Starts as a Conversation.
When you’re approaching potential joint venture partners with a big reach, you want think how can I GIVE FIRST to start to build a reciprocal relationship. As you may know, when you give to others, it always comes back to you in a positive way!
When you do contact potential JV Partners, it’s very important to get to the point and tell them why you are contacting them. Just like you they are busy too!
First start by peaking a potential JV partner’s interest with one of my handy dandy conversation starters. You might say, “I love what you are doing. I would love to talk with you later to see how I can be part of _________.” Or, “I would love to see how we can support/promote each other. What do you have coming up that I can help promote?”
JV Insider Tip 2: Back It Up with a Contract.
No matter how amazing you think a JV Partner is, remember this… before you ever say “Yes” to any JV Partnership, make sure it is backed up by a formal agreement that spells everything out from time frames, expectations, financial obligations, pre-event and post-event outcomes.
Too many times people have said, “I heard you say” and “I thought it was clear, that you would….” All parties must mutually agree to the contract and sign it. Don’t be afraid to put what you want and need in writing because successful people know how important this is. Remember to ask for what you want so you can avoid what you don’t want.
JV Insider Tip 3: Never Ever, Give Up.
The first few times that you reach out to a potential JV partner takes practice. It can be disappointing when you don’t get your desired “Yes” response from potential joint venture partners. They usually have many opportunities in front of them so they may need time to think about it or fit it into their calendar.
You never know when the next Big JV opportunity will help make all you dreams come true and put you in front of much bigger audiences so keep going when most other speakers have given up.
Remember, it is not the number of JV’s. It is the quality and connection that really counts most. Sometimes it only takes one great one to start. The right Strategic Alliance can put you in front of thousands. It has happened for me, it can happen for you!
