Last week I shared two resources for you to join in order to help build an affiliate network and connect with potential JV partners.
Since you’ve visited those websites and created your accounts (please tell me you did this), it’s time to get busy schmoozing!
In case you haven’t posted your introduction post in either community, I’m going to ask that you do that today. Here’s what I posted when I originally signed up to JVNotify Pro:
My name is Bonnie Gean and I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I’ve been working online for the last 13 years, getting my start fresh off the BBS (bulletin board system) line. I ran a worldwide network for many years, connecting to the Internet to pick up and deliver usegroup messages.
I feel at home here and it’s only natural considering my past technology practices! I dabbled with computers for almost 30 years so now you don’t need to ask my age! LOL
I’m a giver and love going to bed at night knowing I’ve helped at least one person move forward. If you need anything, and I can help, I’m glad to extend my help! (I shine at helping budding entrepreneurs learn the ropes.)
I’m not shy, but I usually don’t warm up until I’ve had the chance to get to know you better so all I ask is that you extend me the courtesy of getting to know YOU, and in turn, I’ll do the same.
Thanks so much!
Notice that I didn’t post anything about wanting affiliates or a JV partner. I don’t believe it’s wise that you do that sort of thing on your first visit into the forums. In fact, the owner asks you not to behave in this manner when you’re new to his community.
Two days after posting my initial introduction I revisited the website and found this message from Mike Merz, the owner:
Welcome to JVNP 2.0, Bonnie … though I know we’ve interacted before over the years, always so great to have another fellow Online ‘Dinosaur’ in the mix.
Looking forward to reading your contributions, my friend.
He remembers me from days gone by so many years ago; hence, the dinosaur remark. 🙂 However, the ball is rolling now as Mike noticed my introduction and responded. I made it a point to visit some of the other forum threads and leave comments.
I hope you’ll do the same.
If you already posted introductions on the day that you joined either service, make it a point to browse the forums and leave at least one comment. The idea is to start building visibility within the community so other members get to know you better.
Note: If you set up your pre-launch squeeze page, discussed on Day 58, you should include this page in your signature file so community members can visit and subscribe to your mailing list if they’re interested.
Did you post your introductions on JVNotify Pro and WarriorJV? Leave a comment below and let me know.
Thanks for reading,
