Running a solo business can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be. By partnering with other businesses, you can reach a wider audience and grow your business faster. But where do you find the right partners?

Here are three unusual places to look for JV partners:

      • Your virtual assistant (VA). Your VA may work with other business owners in similar niches, so they’ll be able to give you some insider information. They can tell you which businesses they know which may be open to JV partnerships, what their audiences are like, and how willing they are to promote your products or services.

      • Your best clients. Your best clients are already fans of your work, so they’re more likely to be willing to promote you to their friends, family, and social connections. Make sure they know about your referral/affiliate program and what the benefits are.

      • Your competitors. This may seem counterintuitive, but your competitors can actually be great JV partners. In some industries, clients tend to “graduate” from one business to another. If you’re on good terms with your competitors, you can tap into their existing client base when they’re ready to move on.

    Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to finding JV partners. The best partners are often the ones you least expect.

    How VAs Can Help

    VAs can help you find JV partners in a number of ways. They can:

        • Research potential partners. Your VA can use their knowledge of your industry and your target audience to identify businesses that would be a good fit for a JV partnership.

        • Reach out to potential partners. Your VA can draft emails or make phone calls to potential partners to introduce your business and discuss the possibility of a JV partnership.

        • Negotiate terms. Once you’ve found a potential partner, your VA can help you negotiate the terms of the JV partnership. This includes things like commission rates, marketing materials, and exclusivity agreements.


      JV partnerships can be a great way to grow your business, but finding the right partners can be a challenge. By using your VA’s expertise and resources, you can find the right partners and make the most of your JV partnerships.

      Here are some additional tips for finding JV partners:

          • Be clear about your goals. What are you hoping to achieve with a JV partnership? More leads? More sales? More brand awareness? Once you know your goals, you can start to look for partners who can help you achieve them.

          • Target the right audience. Not all JV partners are created equal. You need to find partners who have a similar audience to yours. This will ensure that your JV partners are actually able to reach your target customers.

          • Offer something of value. JV partners are going to be more likely to work with you if you offer them something of value in return. This could be a commission on sales, a free product or service, or even just some exposure on your social media channels.

          • Be prepared to put in the work. JV partnerships are a two-way street. You need to be prepared to put in the work to make them successful. This means promoting your partner’s products or services, providing them with leads, and working together to create a win-win situation for everyone involved.
