Mastering Joint Ventures - How To Become A JV Broker

Aug 17, 2007
Are you looking for one of the easiest and fastest ways to make lots of money on the Internet? JV Brokerage is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make lots of money online. Being a JV broker is a very advantageous position.

You don't need your own product, customers, or a mailing list. You don't need a fully automated website with all the works. You don't need to purchase anything.

All you need to do is learn how to locate complementary businesses, introduce them to each other, and negotiate a deal between them. You became the middleman. For doing this you get a percentage of the sales.

JV brokering requires a deep network of contacts. They are, after all, the people who will make things possible. Without them, the idea, no matter how grand and rewarding, will most certainly sink before it could even take flight. Meeting people and building great relationships with them is a must for this business. Hence, good public relations skills are a necessity for anyone who wants to try this profession.

JV brokering also requires a creative mind and a keen eye for the industry. Trends should be anticipated and broken down into feasible plans that are efficiently beneficial for all the parties that decide to adopt it. Here are some simple steps you could take if you want to start out with JV brokering.

Find possible JV partners. You can do this by building good relationships with the people you have dealt with and are dealing with currently. They are commodities for your success in this field. If you're just starting out, then you could invest some time in specialized forums and continue to brand yourself as a credible player in the industry.

Soon enough, you'll have a workable list of contacts. Ask them if they're open to joint venturing opportunities. If they say no, be thoughtful and polite, and ask why. Learn all you can from each opportunity you pursue. Educate them on the process. As you find someone who's interested, spend time with them and educate them on the process of joint venturing. Learn how things work. Learn what they are able to do. Learn what they are willing to do. There may be things that they may want to do but can't yet.

If it's their first time, encourage them to ask a lot of questions and really focus on building your relationship together as you invest your time and answer each of their questions. Let them know that you are looking out for opportunities to bring to them.

Formulate an idea by pinpointing a need that should be catered to. These ideas come unexpectedly from inspirations we aren't expecting. It would be great if you can always keep a notebook handy, so you can write down these concepts as they come, regardless of where you are and when they arrive. Develop the idea into a feasible plan. Try to make an outline of what should be done and a timetable by which they can be accomplished.

Try to select the perfect people for the job. The bigger your network is, the more options you will have. Learn what they are able to do. Learn what they are willing to do. Your job as a successful JV Broker is to really know those you are bringing together. Discover their strengths, know their weaknesses. These will all play a very important part towards the success of each joint venture.

Present to them the draft of your plan and invite them to hop aboard the joint venture you are planning. Once all the participants have been notified, try to present a fair and reasonable profit-sharing scheme that will make everybody happy. And once everyone has agreed to the plan and the compensation scheme, it's time to make it come true!

Joint Venture Brokerage is a highly versatile business which can be run on a part- or full-time basis and produce significant profits for those who take the time to learn the necessary skills and apply them. Joint Venture brokerage can be a very rewarding trade, especially when you begin to realize the fruits of your concept and your labor.
