List Building – JV’s and more

No Gravatar

In an earlier Post, I spoke about participating in Joint Venture (JV) Giveaways in order to build your ‘list’. As a Marketer, participating in a JV by contributing a product that you have either made yourself, or that you hold the ‘Giveaway Rights’ for, can boost your list 10 fold or more within a few days.

The question is, as a newbie with no list to start with, how can one participate in Joint Ventures which often require that contributors must recruit either other contributors or members for their gift (contribution) to remain in the event?

Well,  in my case I decided to contact a few friends whom I thought might be interested in downloading some of the offerings and asked them to sign up as ‘members’ under my link.

I also used the various Social Networking sites that I belong to (Facebook, Twitter, Sokule, MySpace, etc) to post information about the Events (Ensuring that MY contributor link was inserted – do not forget to do this. It is the only way that your sign-ups are credited to YOU.)

Phil Morgan has some excellent suggestions on List Building in his Blog, which you can read here.

Now for some shameless promotion:- Please feel free to sign up to the various Joint Venture Giveaways below. Some are still available for contributors, others are available for just members (downloads only).

    Hi Richard,

    You’re right on. Using your social networks, etc to get your foot in the door promoting the Giveaway events you’re in is a really good way to get moving. There are lots of things you can do if you think about it.

    Nice blog Richard.

    Phil :)

  2. Hi Richard, I see you’re using Sokule. How does that? Do you get leads or prospects ?

    Does it differ much from twitter?


    • Hi Deanna, I really just started using Sokule and am still working my way around it. It is similar to Twitter in a number of ways (terminology is different – Tweets would be called Squeaks in Sokule, etc).

      I find that the interface (for me) is a bit awkward, but that is probably a ‘learning curve’ thing. It appears that it is far more geared toward marketing than is Twitter.

      The paid levels afford you various additional applications and other features to enhance your ‘Squeaking’ experience. I ma still on the basic (free) level and will see how it goes.

      I cannot really say much more about it yet, but I thank you for recommending that I try it and suggest that you take it for a ’spin’ and see how it might work for you.

    Hello Richard,

    Great advice on how to quickly build a list. I think many of the giveaway events are an ideal way for “newbies” to get started with list building.

    Right now, I need to check out some of the giveaway events you posted. You never know what you may find:-)

    • Hi Robert and welcome to my humble Blog. Thank you for your kind words.

      As a relative newbie to list building myself, I am definitely finding that JV’s are helping me build my list – its growing for sure. And I am finding a few great products in the bargain :~)
