Since then - Jim has co-authored with more Gurus than I can count. Save them the headache, their time, energy & money - & they'll be happy to co-author with you.
But stainless steel light Manufacturers if you offer to complete that product, they will love you for it!
Take all the work on yourself.
Here's an unusual & insanely profitable kind of JV:
Co-author with a Guru. They want that product to see the light of the day but they don't have time for it or maybe they've just moved on. From Tellman Knudson to Patric Chan & more.
Here's a tip: Ask the guru for an unfinished product. But that's another story. When people see you co-authored an ebook with a successful guru - you get instant credibility. Then he started "List Crusade" where he interviewed (& still does) gurus every week. From finishing the product to writing the sales copy & auto-responder messages.
Whats in it for you? (as if you need to ask!)
Because just one product can launch you to stardom.
Yes, you better know what your stuff.
But why would the guru want to do this?
Because it saves them time & gets them easy bucks!
Every guru has at least a dozen product ideas that they doesn't have time for. The one that got famous was Think like Joe Vitale'.
And then people will be contacting YOU for joint-ventures! The credibility, the money, and the contacts - it's all worth it.
Joe agreed & yes 'hypnotic swipe file' sold like crazy.
He did it Chip Traver, Shawn Casey, Joe Vitale & probably others.
Many gurus start a product but for some reason it's pushed aside half-way down. But this guy has authored at least half a dozen books with the top guns in this industry. And today he's a big Guru himself! Smart, eh?
- Larry Dotson
His story is so simple - it'd be hard to believe.
The story is - Jim Edwards asked Joe Vitale to give him any old document of him that he could turn into an ebook. And no its not for you if you arent damn serious.
I can't say if he launched his online career this way.
The one that gave him the first real boost was "How to write an ebook in 7 days or less that he co-authored with Joe Vitale.
Tellman is an NLP expert. I don't know how he got his start online but his first few products where - 'Think like' series.
Jim edited it a bit & then turned it into "How to write an ebook in 7 days or less". If you offer
to do all the work & still give them 60% or more - there's no way they're going to miss it!
You can also make a product specifically FOR one guru's audience.Joint-Venturing doesn't end on asking a Guru to endorse your stuff. Because it takes a lot of work & brings in a lot of cash. I can't say if this way is harder or easier but one thing is for sure - they 10x more profitable. But that's what the majority of people in the Internet marketing world focus on. Today Larry got 4-6 other hypnotic ebooks co-authored with Joe. It became an instant best seller & gave Jim his first shot of fame.
There are many examples of people who launched their online this way.
Larry wrote a swipe file of hypnotic words & phrases.
- Tellman Knudson.
These are all different kinds of JVs.
Another product he did was 'Nitro Mindset' with the nitro marketing guys.
Nitro marketing that multi-million-dollar IM company promotes 90% of Joe Vitale's products including the ones he co-authored with Larry.
Last year - Joe said he hasn't seen, met or even heard Larrys voice! I doubt if they've even met now - yet the story & success is astonishing. Then he wrote to Joe Vitale that since 'hypnotic' is his brand - Joe can review it & if he wants - add some hypnotic phrases himself & they'll co-author it. And of course the money comes rolling in faster than you can count - because the guru obviously has a loyal following. After constant request - Joe gave him a book he authored long ago - on how to write a book in a record time.
Enjoy the success by co-authoring with the big gurus!
So Larrys is promoted by nitro-marketing & hell keep getting royalty from them for decades to come. Not for the easy-goers. Not the usual milking-the-big-guru please-endorse-me type of ones. Here are 3 case-studies:
