Keeping Downline Informed Keeps Them Working For You - Articles Surfing

Ask anyone who is in your downline what their biggest complain is and most will tell you it is a lack of information from the top. Sure, there may be plenty of information about how the compensation plan works and how much many of your peers are making every week or every month. They may even send you pictures of supposed marketers standing beside their new luxury car or boat wither family on another vacation.

Ask yourself, what does that really convey to your downline? Does it explain how they did it and what your folks can do to make it a reality for them? No. Most members of your downline will probably tell you they see it as their working hard and following all of the company programs has enabled you to live the good life they are having trouble reaching.

Some of the people on top of the marketing network forget that their downline needs more than encouragement and more than carrots dangled from a stick. They need real, honest advice about how to run their business. Never take no for an answer is simply the wrong advice for most of them and even the most persistent and aggressive marketers will give up after awhile if they do not feel their upline is rooting for them to succeed.

Remember that marketing to your downline is the most important part of your marketing strategy because when enough of them become disgruntled you will not have a downline and your style of living will come to an abrupt halt. Yes, there will always be another group of people ready to join in a successful business, but it takes time and effort, which in the network marketing business is money, to train new ones and get them up to speed. In the meantime, your income falls and so does the income of everyone else in your upline.

Keeping your downline motivated is not marketing, it is essential in any business where you are responsible for the success of those who make your success possible. An important point to remember is that how your downline goes, so you go. You want to market to your downline with training opportunities. Do not call them and try to hard sell them into making more money. Tell them how to make more money. Scripts do not work for everyone, nor do they work on everyone. Make sure they understand their options and if the script is a guideline let them know. Also let them know what the limits are on how far they can stray from the script without crossing any lines that can get them or the company in trouble.

If something negative appears about the company do not try to gloss over it by telling them that is for someone else to worry about and that their concern should be to focus on sales. As simple as that may sound, it is not going to work. Your downline will likely start jumping to another company before the dam breaks. If the outside influences do not sink the ship a sudden exodus of your downline certainly will.
