I’m getting a really late start this morning because I ended up going back to sleep for a bit after Shaun left. The time change and starting the day in the dark are really doing a number on me this year, so I’m thinking there may be a few mornings like this before we get back on an even keel. And, it’s probably time to rearrange my desk so there’s room for my Happy Light for the winter.
Before we dive into today’s goodies, I do have a couple of announcements and reminders for you:
Announcement #1 – Date change for the Bonus Repurposing Session.
So, apparently I can’t read and I can’t remember what I set up for webinars and zooms either. On Sunday I said that the bonus Repurposing Outside the Box session for the Homepreneur’s Bundle was on Friday this week. Turns out I scheduled it for Friday, November 19 at 2 p.m. so if you bought the bundle through my link, you’ll find the signup details for that in your bonus PDF.
Announcement #2 – Today’s the last day to save on the Flowers Coloring Pages
The coupon – FLOWERS10 – for the ZenStyle Flowers Coloring Pages expires tonight at midnight. You can pick those up here if you haven’t already.
Affiliates Vs. JV Partners
I’ve had a couple of conversations this past week that came about as a result of my piece on how I decide what to promote, about the difference between affiliates and JV partners. I know a lot of people use the terms interchangeably, but the truth is they are not the same thing at all.
So, let’s start with a couple of definintions:
An affiliate is someone who sends traffic to a product creator’s website. They are given a special website URL, called an affiliate link, which tracks how much traffic they send to the product website. They receive a commission for each sale that is made for their affiliate link.
A joint venture (JV) is where you team up with other marketers in your niche for mutually beneficial activities. It’s a great way to leverage other peoples’ assets (such as their lists or traffic), and in turn they’re happy to help because they get something out of it too. The people involved in the joint venture are usually referred to as JV partners.
You can see by the definition that they’re not the same thing at all. An affiliate relationship is the easiest type of mutually beneficial relationship you can have with someone. You promote their stuff, and they pay you a percentage for any sales you make. You don’t have to be friends; you don’t even have to know the person – I know several people who automatically allow everyone who buys from them to become an affiliate.
There’s no expectation on either side – or at least there shouldn’t be – other than that the product creator will provide a decent product to promote, and a personalized link and the affiliate will take said link and send out an email about the product if it fits with their audience.
And to be sure, as I explained the other day, not every product someone creates will be something I or any other affiliates will want to promote to their audience. And that’s especially true in the PLR and low content space just because of the sheer amount of products that get released every day.
I don’t expect my affiliates to promote every single thing I release – some of my affiliates don’t promote anything but my bundle sales – and I’m perfectly okay with that. And by the same token, I promote a lot of stuff and am an affiliate for people who I know will never, ever promote my stuff because there stuff works for my audience but mine does not work for theirs.
To put it simply, being an affiliate for someone is a straight financial relationship where you get rewarded for sending quality traffic.
The issue arises when a product creator is also an affiliate and mistakes the affiliate relationship for a JV partnership. They build up expectations that if they promote you, then you’re going to do a tit-for-tat and promote them too. And for some people it works that way, especially on the IM marketplaces like Warrior Plus and JVZoo. But as I explained before, that doesn’t work for me because if you give in to those expectations you lose all credibility with your audience since at some point you’re going to end up promoting products that you know are not a good fit just because it’s expected of you.
A JV Partnership, on the other hand, takes time and work to build up and maintain. There has to be some common ground there that you can base a partnership on. For example, the relationship that Jenn and I have with UsePLR.com is a good example of a JV partnership. We have a common interest in teaching people how to use their PLR, and we work together to build products and maintain a community around that topic.
A mini bundle like the Meet the Content Creators one we did awhile back is also a good example of a JV Partnership. People with similar products, price points, and audiences (to paraphrase my good friend and sometime JV partner Melody Wigdahl) got together to do a sale and see if this partnership would work.
I hope that gives you some idea of the difference between affiliates and JV partners. As a product creator you do want to have both, but you should always have more straight affiliates and JV partners. Be selective in choosing both because the one thing they do have in common is that you are putting your own reputation on the line with both the affiliates you allow to promote you, and with the JV partners you choose to work with.
