Joint venture partners are easy to come across. Actually, there are numerous people around who would happily join forces with you on a joint venture partnership. You need to decide what you are looking for in a partner before you search one out.
Tip one: Be the type of person that you wish to have for a partner. This encompasses several different traits of who you are, but there are two that are the most important. The first and most likely the most crucial trait is whether or not you can be trusted. People aren’t going to work with someone they can’t trust. Next, people want to work with someone who feels his business is important. Nobody wants to join forces with someone who doesn’t feel the partnership is worth putting effort into.
Tip two: Make sure you have something to offer potential partners. Your reputation and that of your business must be spotless. This entails a good record with customer service and a quality product to offer your customers. You look for credibility by association with any partners; the same thing works in reverse..
Tip three: Don’t get lax on looking for potential partners. Not being constantly on watch will make it easier to miss an opportunity that would be perfect. You can find potential partners in forums and online lists. Just make sure the places you join have good reputations.
Once you have decided what kind of person you’d like to have as a partner and made a list of places to find those types of people, the search is nearly over. Ask questions and get all the answers you need to make a sound decision then make your offer and you are on your way.
