If the JV forum helps pick up 10+ JV partners?, then isn't it like an affiliate finding forum?

8 replies
If you have a product and you offer a jvs to help you make money from it (eg, they can offer it to their list)

and you pick up 10+ jvs, who pm you, then isn't that like an affiliate finding forum?

as they have become 10 affiliates?

or are they JV partners because they have affiliate agreements in place ?

    Yes, it is the same thing.

    They are your affiliates.

    The idea usually with a JV is that they get actively involved in your products and services, and you in theirs, for a future of lots of sales...

      Apparently you think they are different, otherwise this thread would not exist.
      do jv contracts have to be made with the jv partners?

      you in theirs.. what if you just want them to get involved in yours for a cut of the profits, which is all that you can offer. (but cant offer to get involved in their project)

      is a cut of the project $ enough?


      and any tips for offering your product on the JV forum? (besides making sure the product is good)

        Only in the IM field.

        They are different. And, to address the OP directly, the JV section of this forum does not allow affiliate recruiting, no matter what label you put on it.

          thanks, but on that section, if/when you get 3 JV partners emailing you and they promote for you, then isnt that the same as getting/recruiting 3 affiliate partners?

            I think you need to read the rules thread in the JV section. You cannot currently post ads there looking for affiliates. Calling them "JV partners" won't get past that rule. I know the difference, and I was pretty clear about it.

    These terms are used interchangeably throughout the IM World, but they are not the same.

    Loosely defined, a "JV" is a joint venture partner... someone or a small group of people you team up with to achieve an end goal (ie: whatever). Contracts or agreements are sometimes created and signed to make sure the partnership is mutually beneficial (ie: that no one screw each other over).

    Affiliates are the folks who promote your products and services in return for a share of the profits. (ie: a revenue share).

    JVs *can* be affiliates in that they, too, can and do promote your products. But, in the strict sense, JVs are a more select group that typically allow for more fringe benefits (ie: they promote for you... you promote for them).

    Of course, I could be completely wrong about everything... OMG! :p

    Jay,

    A lot of that is right. The notion that there's mutual promotion involved isn't a necessary ingredient, though.

    Joint ventures can be a lot of things. A programmer and a marketer working together to create and sell a useful piece of software, each contributing skills and ideas and each taking a share of the profits is one example. 3 people contributing funding to a project, with each also bringing additional skills or connections to the table is another. There are tons more.

    Some that do NOT fit the requirements for that section would include guest blogging opportunities (that's advertising, not a JV), affiliate recruiting (same), selling anything directly through the section, or offers looking for investors.

    We also don't allow those "offers" that involve getting someone else to let you run ads through their AdSense account, or selling their stuff through your eBay account. Those aren't JVs. They're mostly straight up scams.
