competitors. Then propose a partnership. There are
many ways to find prospective partners.

and newsgroups that share your target market. You can
also search in search engines and directories to find
businesses that target your market.

to link to you with out some incentive is a different
story. But if you add this little twist your sure to

web site by linking to it. Put your business
advertisement at the top of the directory.

ads with other businesses. If both of you send
out information with auto-responders just exchange
a small classified ad to put at the bottom or top of
each other's auto-responder message. This would
work great with email courses too.

end of the content. And both of you get more exposure.
