You may have heard or seen numerous JV giveaways going on and may wonder… what the heck are they?
JV stands for joint venture. A JV giveaway is when marketers join together to give away free products. The marketers that give away these products are also known as contributors.
During what is known as the pre-launch, contributors sign up, most of the time for free, to list their product. Depending on the JV giveaway, contributors can sign up anytime during its duration.
The contributors can list their products, which could be ebooks, courses, or any digital download depending on the giveaway. After the pre-launch phase, and many time during the pre-launch phase, members can sign up and download the free products or free gifts.
Marketers do this to build their opt-in list. The members who sign up for the JV can download the product or products they choose after filling out a submit form and opting in to the particular product contributors list.
JV giveaways are good for both the contributor and the member. For the contributor they get to build their opt-in list by giving away free products. For the member they get free informational products which they more then likely would have to pay for if they did not find the right place to purchase them.
There are JV giveaways that are going on constantly, therefore, if you are ever looking for a particular product you just need to do a search for JV giveaways. For individuals looking to build a list you can simply do the same search and find many giveaways to participate in.
Currently, there is one great JV giveaway going on that I recommend. It is called Social Marketing Gifts. It launches on 7/7/2009, however if you are a contributor and want to build an optin list you sign up here for free.
