Google The TOP 30 Sites

Go through each one of the sites that comes up. See what they are selling. Ask yourself if they have a clear message. Ask yourself what you would do differently. Then buy their product. Watch and understand their sales process. What did they do right and wrong. How would you do it differently?
Take notes on each of the sites. This will pay BIG dividends when you contact them directly to see if they would interested in doing a joint venture.
