Need help finding JV Broker

17 replies
Hello everybody,
Im getting close to launching my product and I'm looking for a JV Broker. I don't know many people so a JV with a huge list is crucial to the success of my business.

I have two questions:
1) How good is JVNotifyPro? Is it useful? Does it actually help?
2) Where can I find a good JV broker?

Much appreciated,

Nick

    JVNotifyPro is very useful... You may be able to find JV partners here in the JV section of the forum

    Simply Google "Product Launch Calender" and you'll find a lot of websites that will allow you to post your product and other sites like warriorjv.com have a paid option where they can send your launch to a big list of affiliate marketers. This way is cheaper and effective unless if your willing to pay $2000+ for a JV Broker.

    To find a JV Broker in your niche simply Google:

    "Niche" + JV Broker

    You can also try JVBroker.com

      A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

        Willie Crawford is a bit out of my budget with the 10k minimum upfront.

      I know big name JVs like Sohail Khan and Willie Crawford, but reaching out to them is very difficult, and they often have a high upfront fee. Do you know any good JVs that charge around 2k upfront?
      Is JVbroker.com good for the IM niche?

    Other people may disagree, but I do not think a JV broker is needed for a product launch. I would promote a JV contest with cash prizes if getting JV heavyhitters is your aim. My two sense.

      Join Joint Venture groups on Facebook in the internet marketing niche. There are several of them. Introduce yourself, network, and you maybe able to find some JVs from that without having to break the bank. I also like the idea of having JV/affiliate contests as well.

      Thank you for your response,

      I was thinking about having a JV contest with cash prizes as well. I'm basically trying to get super affiliates on my team. But I don't know if a $10,000 cash prize for best affiliate would be tempting to a super affiliate who makes millions of dollars.

      The reason I'm looking for a broker like Willie Crawford is to get super affiliates to promote my product.

    Nick,

    I'm not sure you understand the role of a JV broker.

    He is the one you should be contacting in a effort to find marketing partners and targeted email lists.

    If this is an accurate statement ". . . a JV with a huge list is crucial to the success of my business" . . . I think your business is on pretty shakey ground. Do you really want the future of your business to depend upon some unknown and "yet to be determined" marketing partner?

      Hi Steve, thank you for your response,

      The reason I believe getting a JV such as W. Crawford would have a big impact on my business is because I do not have a large email list, nor do I have a relationship with any super affiliates. Which is why I'm trying to get someone like Mr. Crawford or Mike Merz as my JV broker.

      Thanks,

      Nick

    Stay away from anyone calling themselves a JV broker. That title exists solely within scam segments. There are no exceptions. It is not a legitimate job title within mainstream business circles.

    Hire a decent affiliate manager instead. Specifically, someone with prior experience in what you are selling. They will know who the big affiliates are and (hopefully) have an existing relationship with them from prior work.

      Do you happen to know any good affiliate managers that can help my business?

      I appreciate the help,

      you cant be serious. there are and have been deal makers who have lots of connections as long as businesses have existed.

      i guess you are calling guys like willie crawford a scam? do realize how many six figure earners that guy has helped create?

      if you had a worthwhile product and 10k+ to actually hire willie, i would bet a bunch of my own money you would be singing a different tune after that guy turned your little 10k investment into a perpetually profitable business because he got you in the door.

      to the OP. getting a jv broker is not really easy if you are unknown unless your product is really really good. just another pdf or video aint gonna get it done. the good jv brokers have to protect their reputation too....its not jsut about paying them. the good ones dont need your money really. jv brokering is a side thing for them.

      your best bet would be to not focus so much on a big launch effort. i know thats tempting, but its a recipe for disappoint for most people. if you are new to the market. you have to build up to the big launches.

      instead, come up with a more comprehensive strategy of using several sites like jvnotifypro and others mentioned here and then focus your efforts on working tirelessly with any productive affiliates you do get. nurture those relationships and see if you can't get them to help you recruit other affiliates.

      your 2nd, 3rd, 4th products are where you get into actually having bigger launches. after you have got some credibility and leverage built up in the market.

      if you have a 2k-ish type budget, i would contact a couple of the bigger sellers on the warriorplus or jvzoo systems and see if they have any interest in working with you. if they have cross-sell type products that would be ideal.

      i am not trying to discourage you, just giving you a more realistic idea of what to expect.

    Are you sure you want someone like Willie Crawford? I had never heard of him, so I Goggled his name....this is what I found out about him: https://www.prbuzz.com/business-entr...-jv-broke.html

    I'm just saying I would think twice about having someone like this on my team!

      Hi Aaron,

      If you read the whole thread (it's not all that long) it will quickly become apparent that many here HAVE heard of Willie Crawford. For that matter, do a search here on the Warrior Forum (he uses his real name), rather than just a Google search.

      Here... let me help http://www.warriorforum.com/members/...-crawford.html

      Everybody who has ever done anything at all (including myself) has occasionally gotten some bad press.

      I took a look at the link you provided. It is a Press Release by David Canham (also a name I have heard, but not in quite a while). I read David's press release and found NO reference to any specific wrong-doing on Willie's part. It was obvious that he felt he should "raise the alarm", but I honestly couldn't find any specific accusation - especially an accusation that he supported with documentation or fact.


      In short... it was an editorial.

      Digging a little deeper, it seems that David Canfield bills himself as a "JV Broker" and (like Willie) that he operates out of the state of Florida. Might this just be an attempt to tarnish the reputation of his competition?

      Perhaps you should think twice about spreading slanderous gossip when your entire argument revolves around hearsay?

      I won't bother clicking that link. Willie Crawford is the opposite of scam. He is the epitome of an honest, ethical and successful Internet marketer. He is what some of us aspire to be. He probably has more connections to other honest successful marketers than anyone you could find. When he rarely recommends something people listen because they know it will at least have the foundation to be something great. I wouldn't know for sure but I would suspect that he turns down many more JV requests than he ever accepts.

      Willie I Know...Aaron I don't. In fact I bet you can't find 2 people in the IM field who haven't heard of Willie. And those who have done anything with him consider it a privilege to have his hard work, integrity and perception on their team.
