It is always difficult to start making money when you launch your first information product. Even if you have managed to get it approved on a decent market place like clickbank this is still not enough to ensure regular sales.

If you are having trouble making regular sales or are just starting out with your information product business then you are not alone. Unfortunately many thousands of new internet marketers fall at the first hurdle when they discover just how hard it is to get themselves noticed or drive sufficient traffic to their product sales page to make enough sales. It is also unfortunate that many new Internet marketers also lack the confidence to start contacting possible Joint Venture partners to help promote their product.

If you want to make a dent in the market place and make a name for yourself then you will need to start networking within your chosen niche. Forums are a good place to start, the ever popular Warrior Forum is one of the busiest Internet marketing forums on the planet and is a great place to meet like minded professionals and forge possible JV partnerships.

There really is not better time to start networking with the Internet providing the most instant hands-off approach to networking known, why not make a start straight away.

A good tip for contacting well know marketers is to offer to review and promote one of their products with nothing in return. Not all marketers will respond but you will definitely get a few who will and will be more than willing to offer you a free download of their product to review and promote.

Then a few months after promoting their product, contact them asking if they would mind promoting your new product, you will find nine times out of ten that they will now be more than willing to promote for you as they now know who you are and will also feel the need to reciprocate your act of promoting their product earlier. Who knows you might just find a JV with a list of thousands who will promote your product, giving you the exposure and sales you need to build your online business

Remember to offer a decent commission rate for your JV partner, there is no set amount but 50% commission on all sales sold through their website is usually a good start. Some seller's like to offer higher commissions like 60, 70 or even 80%. Why?

Well it's simple, would you rather have 20% of something or 50% of nothing? Some of the big name marketers have tremendous amounts of traffic coming through their site, so in turn have the potential to sell thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of your product. And remember, the beauty of selling a digital product is that it never runs out, and packaging costs you nothing so remember this when making an offer to a potential JV partner.

You may need to offer a higher commission base but the rewards will often well make up for this offer.

Just imagine a JV partner selling 10,000 copies of your Information product at $9.99. You offer them 80% commission on the sales made. You take only 20% of these sales. That's $19,980 in sales in your pocket. As I said earlier, it's better to have 20% of something rather than 50% of nothing.

Occupation: Internet Marketer
Hi, my name is Steve Wilkins and I am from the South-East of sunny England.

It was in 2006 that I first got into the exhilarating world of Internet Marketing after reading just about every ”Get-Rich Quick” and ”Instant Over Night Riches'' sales page out there. You see I like many of us believed that there must be some quick money out there to be made and I must have invested well over $500 within my first few months with absolutely no reward.

So after a few months dabling with no real success I moved onto eBay and visited flea markets picking up old antiques to resell which gave me a tidy little income for a while but the truth was I was looking for something bigger and better!

It was only in 2008 that I decided to get into Internet Marketing properly and open my eyes to the real possibilities that exist. I was fed up of reading how you can become a millionaire in 2 weeks and how you can create a business over night.

So with that I gave myself a big slap in the face and decided that only hard work, commitment and commonsense would get me anywhere in the Internet Marketing Field.

In the last 18 months I have set up my own blog which offers other like-minded individuals the chance to watch and learn how to set up a profitable eBusiness. I have built a massive list of subscribers to which I send weekly online business tips and advice.

I have released my very own product called ''Build Your eBiz with Resale Rights and PLR'' which is a comprehensive study course for anyone wanting to set up their own profitable resale rights and plr business including a stack of step-by-step videos showing exactly how it is done.


I have turned my passion for Internet marketing from a hobby into my full-time Job. Well I call it a job but there is no real comparison to my last work as it is simply what I love doing.

Feel free to come over and see me at my blog should you want to learn more about me and see what I can do for you and your business.

Thanks for taking the time to read my Bio.

I look forward to speaking and possibly working with you sometime very soon.

All the best.
Steve Wilkins
