Section 1: Introduction To The Course

This is the introduction to the course.


In this video I explain the types of joint venture partnerships out there.

Section 2: How To Form The Best Relationships with Highly Successful Entrepreneurs

You can use forums such as the WarriorForum to find Joint Venture opportunities.


Using interviews is a powerful tactic that you can use for forming great partnerships.


I Impressed a successful blogger by going through one of his programs and going above and beyond what most other students would do in order to form a partnership.


Some suggestions on what you should be looking for in a good JV partner.

Section 3: Example Partnerships I've Formed

This is the LightningRank SEO service I formed with Jon Haver.


This is an example of a product I helped Vinny transform into a membership site which we eventually decided to launch on Udemy.


This is an eBook I turned into a video course with Victor Pride using Udemy.

Section 4: Tools for Building Upon a Good Partnership

Using Skype, Google Hangouts and email are some of the best ways to keep communication consistent.


Using a tool to help plan meetings will be crucial if you live in different time zones, use a tool like Schedule once to do this for you.


I use Google Drive as a way to keep track of progress and tasks that need to be completed when working on projects together. It's easy to share documents and work on them at the same time during calls.

Section 5: Splitting Commissions With Your Partner

In this video I show you how you can split instructor revenue with Udemy, it is very easy to do and is a very "hands off" setup.


JvZoo is a great platform for splitting revenue when selling digital products outside of Udemy. I highly recommend it.

Section 6: Lessons Learned: The Good & The Bad

It would be a safe move to make sure you've created some documents covering the terms of your partnership. This way there is no misunderstandings when working on your product launch, course or business.


When forming a partnership it's important to not set yourself up to fail or hit a roadblock because you absolutely needed your partner to finish a project.

One example might be relying on them to promote your content or to build an aspects of the business.

If you can 100% do everything required to get your idea or project off of the ground this will be the absolute best position you can be in. If they walk away for any reason you will easily be able to complete the project.


I talk about a bad business deal I jumped into and talk about why you should be careful when working with people online. Even signed documents won't always save you if something does not go as planned.

Section 7: Conclusion

Thanks for going through this course, I hope the content I shared was helpful and the real partnership examples I provided have gotten you thinking about how you can go out and start partnering with others to achieve success online!
