Sure approaching A Grade guys like Mike F, John Reese or Willie Crawford (Willie is infact very approachable) may not result in a yes, as these guys are very busy and have more JV requests then they can poke a stick at.....
There are thousands more other marketers who are just waiting for the right offer to come along.
Have a product/service that their list will be responsive to. If you know Mr Guru X uses and promotes Article Marketing stuff...then if you have a new cool Article marketing product that has a USP, he already knows that his list will eat more of it up.
most importantly.....JUST ASK!
I've gotten many knock backs but I've also gotten several "gurus" involved with an upcoming launch (marketers who in the past I could only dream would want to JV with me) by meeting the following criteria:
- Make it relate to their list
- Make sure your product has a USP (do something unique/new)
- Offer generous commissions
- Make it easy for them (provide all promo materials)
By doing the above..
you're essentially making it hard for them to say NO!
