Using joint ventures to grow your business and sell more products is probably one of the best strategies available. At its most basic form a joint venture is where two businesses come together to promote something where both gain something in return.
Typical joint ventures used to help entrepreneurs grow their list and sell more products include:
Business A produces a product or service. Business B promotes that product or service for a commission. Although a time-tested joint venture, this is probably not where you should start out if you want to sell more products. Affiliates usually don’t want to promote something unless they know it sells well, and so you might be hard-pressed to get affiliate to promote your untested information product.
Joint Venture Teleseminars
Business A provides valuable content about their product. Business B hosts a teleseminar to promote that product for either list-building or affiliate commission benefits. This is a very good way for newer information product creators to spread the word and gain exposure to new audiences.

The objective of viral marketing is to get other (preferably lots and lots of others) to pass on your marketing message to their friends and colleagues, who, in turn, pass it on to their friends and colleagues and so on.
But how do you do this? How do make viral marketing not only get your name out and about, but have it increase your sales? Here are some tips.
Viral Free Gift
Create a free something that is so interesting, entertaining and/or compelling that people really want to share it. Then make it easy for them to do so. Upload it to free download sites. Include “share this with your friends” language at the beginning and end of the something.
Why do I keep call this viral marketing tool a “something”? Because it can be a report, white paper, audio mp3 or even a YouTube video.
When someone downloads the something, show them a tell-a-friend box and make it easy and compelling to tell their friends. Offer them an additional gift for spreading the word.
