So I’ve got to write about this JV fiasco again.
I get an email from the manager of this JV launch trying to explain to me how lucky I am to pay him to promote his site!
Here is his JV page where he wants to SELL me JV membership.
Keep in mind 8 months ago when I was getting into this niche I did pay them $99 to join… and honestly if he had only offered to sell me a JV for $99 I would have considered it. However what really pissed me off was he decided to charge $499 to get me to buy a LIFETIME JV Membership! That’s BS.
He tells me in his email about how he has never shut down a web site and his original web sites from 7 years ago are still around.
Ok, so you haven’t shut down a web site in 7 years… BUT how many of your members are still paid subscribers 12 months later? how about 2 years later? Are any of them still subscribers 4, 5, 6, 7 years later?
That’s my point. His upselling me! His JV Partner! To lifetime membership is nothing but GREED.
Then he goes on to tell me about how I get these great membership benefits… I usually give those to my guys free, I don’t charge my JV partners for that! Why would I? I want my JV partners to be as prepared as possible. I want them to be able to see first hand what the membership site is like. That way they’ll be better prepared and better able to sell the product. Yet he thinks I need to pay him for this?
What do you think? Am I crazy?
Do you have JV partners who pay you to join your site? Have you ever heard of such a thing?

So he sells 50 JV partners a membership for $99 a piece. So he makes $4,950 from selling them JV memberships. Then he pays them $7000 in commissions. SO really he is only paying $2050 in commissions, because the other $4950 is really just paying back the JV’s their initial investment.
AND this was his old launch which cost $99 to become a JV Partner. His new launch wants you to pay $499 in which case if you look at the numbers above you’d see how he is making a profit from his JV Partners even when you account for all the commissions he’ll pay out!If you enjoyed this post get free updates via email or RSS here.
