How to Succeed in Joint Ventures With Bricks and Mortar Businesses

Joint ventures can only REALLY work long term if there is a way to connect the "shopper" to the referrer to the business. And this system has to be automated.

I would be chasing the leads all day and I have other things to

True "joint venture" heaven would be if I could refer a person to a business once and "WHEN" the person decides to shop..the referral is automatically linked back to me. Well that "heaven" works with online businesses through affiliate links...can it work with regular bricks and mortar businesses?

Tracking has always been the problem! imagine a whole new world of "referral money" available through businesses in your own city, town or village. Founder Doug Anderson has done an amazing job developing a online platform that makes tracking referrals to your local business community easy and seamless!
