joint ventureLet's be honest, everyone in business wants a win-win and forming a strategic partnerships can be your "fast-track" to a win-win situation. It does not matter whether the parties involved are huge companies, a few individuals or whether they are start-ups. Businesses with similar products and services within the same niche can pool their resources together to create that "win-win" through utilizing shared affiliates with the ability to drive targeted traffic to your offer or tapping into each others "buyers list" in order to take a product or service further than they could have individually. This strategic alliance is known as a Joint Venture and marketers easily fall into the ten mistakes that are inherent with this strategy but first let's look at the benefits of joint venture.

The Benefits of a Win-Win Joint Venture

  • Selling your own product instead of promoting someone else's
  • Immediate Traffic - Affiliates do all the heavy lifting when it comes to traffic generation
  • Relationship Building with Vital Contacts
  • Shared Economic Risk
  • Leverage on New Methods and Skills

Note: I probably won't expand on all 10 joint venture blunders and they're not in any particular order but I created a nifty little "info-graphic" for your viewing pleasure at the bottom of this post. =)

So here we go; The first suggestion to ensure a successful joint venture is to at all costs avoid approaching a potential JV partner when he or she is busy or worst yet, for example, when they're on vacation; and more than likely,  it won't be so much the potential JV who gets annoyed by your unwanted intrusion during their hiatus, as much as their spouse will be annoyed by it! I've had a few experiences similar to this and I've realized that entrepreneurs are usually open to "talking-shop" anywhere, anytime but it won't be received well when done on the spouse's time. One way to avoid this blunder is familiarizing yourself with their schedule and just have a good sense of "there's an appropriate time and place for everything".

Critical and Crucial if You're an Unknown

The critical part of a joint venture is execution therefore letting a potential JV partner know your schedule is crucial. Don't let the clock to run down and ask for help few days or even a few hours before a product launch. Conversely, three to four weeks notice should be sufficient enough to have a successful launch. If you are an unknown, it may be difficult to get partners for potential JV's because honestly, it's difficult to work with someone on an uneven playing field. So if you're new to JV's, focus on getting your name out there by giving more value to the market than you're getting back monetarily and with experience you can more easily approach the top people in your niche.

Prospective joint venture partners need to know that you have a history of reciprocating equally in promotion. If someone fails to promote products equally, there is no incentive for people to come aboard but keep in mind, no matter what happens, it is very unprofessional to try and "guilt" someone into promoting. Investors like confidence and winners. To attract the best people, you may have to do all the work because frankly, an investor may have money, but they may not want to work.

Escaping the "Newbie Zone" in JV's

When you're working towards escaping the "Newbie Zone", don't let a potential partner know that you have less experience than he or she and the thing that will go along way, is to ensure you work all the kinks out of a plan before presenting it to any prospective partner. Professionalism is key to any joint venture and potential investors may back off if they are uncertain whether you're up to the task.

Here's the "Top 10 Mistakes in Joint Venture" in a super duper entertaining "info-graphic" format! ENJOY!

Are the Empower Network boys really handing over the “keys to the kingdom” to every average “Joe” who wants to make a go of it online or is it all just smoke and mirrors?

Thankfully, I’ve been given a rare “insider” look that I’ll pass on to you through the duration of this post (so read every word) and providing you some additional resources to check out in order to validate what I say here!

When and How did Empower Network Start?

The founders, David Sharpe and David Wood, officially launched Empower Network on October 31, 2011. During the first week of November alone that year, the company paid out an outstanding $1,000,000 in commissions to the initial members. So far, the company has paid out well over $70,000,000 to an estimated 160,000 affiliates, and it is now getting bigger and better.

Empower Network ENV2: “BlogBeast” Emerges

October 11, 2013 has seen the release of a new version of Empower Network aptly called Empower Network ENV2. This new system is set to rival the biggest and most popular blogging systems available on the blogosphere…namely WordPress. It’s expected that Empower Network Version 2 will completely change the way (and ease in which) internet marketing is done.

Features in the New Empower Network Version 2.0 (ENV2)

With ENV2.0, one of the most notable changes includes the removal of all technical challenges that were associated with version 1 which was built on the WordPress platform. It now only takes 2-3 clicks of your mouse to communicate virally and on a mass scale with complete automation. Within a minute to a minute and a half, your content is beamed worldwide and coded to your affiliate links, allowing you to earn the 100% commissions as an EN affiliate.

  • ENV2 will also help you keep track of stats as well as progress through a new sales conversion engine so that you can focus more on marketing and not tracking

Note: Watch this bootleg video for all the details!

Other Features Found in ENV2

Once you are logged into the new system, there is the activity feed that shows four different types of postings that you can make without having to go through multiple clicks to figure things out, these are:

  • Text posts
  • Audio posts
  • Image posts
  • Video posts

Moreover, all postings come optimized without requiring you to do much.

The viral activity feed monitors each of your products and with just one log in, you can monitor how well your products are doing in the various sites they are posted on.

  • Capability to post only to those that are in your “inner circle”

Are Bloggers Journalists?

Graham Pushes Media Shield Law — And Questions Who Should Be Covered By It

“Who is a journalist is a question we need to ask ourselves,” said U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, addressing reporters from the corner of his second-floor office on Hampton and Huger streets. “Is any blogger out there saying anything — do they deserve First Amendment protection? These are the issues of our times.”

Answers to those questions are what South Carolina’s senior U.S. senator wants to figure out as he helps draft a bipartisan federal media shield law to protect members of the press from their government. The Republican announced his plans to push such a bill during a May 29 news conference in his Columbia office.

The legislation comes in response to criticism of a broad subpoena by the U.S. Justice Department of the phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors, and also a DOJ investigation into a Fox News reporter — a probe on which U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder personally signed off.

In both cases, the U.S. government was trying to sniff out how reporters received classified information. The scandals came around the same time the IRS was apologizing for targeting conservative groups that were applying for tax-exempt status. The convergence of scandals created a feeding frenzy in Washington, and political opponents of President Barack Obama smell blood in the water.

A media shield law died in Congress in 2009. Among other provisions, that law would have offered members of the media protection from having to testify in federal cases or from coughing up documents. On May 20, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama endorses the idea of a media shield law being taken up again by Congress. South Carolina’s Graham is the lead GOP sponsor of the bill. He’s working with Democratic U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and six other senators, three Democrats and three Republicans.

Graham didn’t give specifics on the law, but said it would make it more difficult for the government to get a reporter’s notes and strike the right balance between freedom of the press and protecting national security interests. Asked how he’d determine whether someone is a journalist, Graham said it would likely take some revision of DOJ guidelines to make sure they’re up to date with current technology and the new media landscape. The DOJ hasn’t updated its guidelines about how it investigates reporters since the 1970s or ’80s, Graham said. Only when it’s a matter of national security, Graham said, can the government get involved in journalism.

In 2009, when Congress last tried to hash out a media shield law, Clint Helder asked in Columbia Journalism Review,

“Are journalists best defined by the act of reporting (what’s known as a functional definition), or by how they are employed (a status-based definition)?”

It’s a question Graham appears to be grappling with.

“You can sit in your mother’s basement and chat away, I don’t care. But when you start talking about classified programs, that’s when it gets to be important,” he said during a Free Times interview. “So, if classified information is leaked out on a personal website or [by] some blogger, do they have the same First Amendments rights as somebody who gets paid [in] traditional journalism?”

South Carolina has its own shield law for reporters. Graham voted for it as a member of the S.C. House when it passed decades ago. The state law protects those who are engaged in the gathering and dissemination of news to the public, according to Jay Bender, the attorney for the state Press Association who lobbied for the bill.

“It could include a blogger — and it has,” Bender says. “Who among us can determine who is a reporter? In South Carolina we avoided that by focusing on persons and organizations engaged in gathering and the dissemination of news.”
