Your MLM Team Needs You
The investment you make in your MLM team is one of the best investments you can make in your network marketing business. Attention to this area of your business will pay tremendous dividends for years to come.
One of the key principles of network marketing is helping others obtain their dreams. Network marketing has consistently been a business of people helping others. Regretably, I see too many multilevel marketers who allow their MLM team to suffer from abandonment. These marketers sign up new distributors, but never take the time to know, train or enable these individuals.
This is a real indication of a multilevel marketer out of touch with the realities of this business. When a multilevel marketer truly understands the power of synergy in their MLM business, the thought of ignoring a member of your network marketing downline team is unthinkable. The truth of the matter is your success is directly tied to their accomplishment. If you are not assisting your people attain their goals, you are harming your own business progress.
Here are some important investments that I would recommend you use with your MLM team. First invest in their aspirations. Assist your team members define aspirations that are large enough to keep them going. Help them to see, hear, taste and feel the goals that are ahead of them. Perhaps you need to take your new team member to the travel agent, car dealership or open house to help them see themselves in the reality of obtaining their dreams. This is not a singular investment either. It is imperative that you regularly bring your team members back in touch with the aspiration that brought them into your network marketing business to start with.
The second investment you ought to make is in their training. Too many MLM marketers are greeted with a congratulatory telephone call from their upline and a list of hotel meetings to be present at, but left alone to figure out the business for themselves. Invest in coaching your downline well. Teach them the basics of promotion, product & presentation. Help them with the things that cause them to be fearful. Let them know that you are there to help them achieve their goals. A person cannot be a vital benefit to your MLM team, unless you teach them how. A lack of investment will be reflected in a lack of results.
Invest in a relationship. Take a few minutes to learn about their family, their interests and them as a person. When people see that you care for them as a person and not just a position on a downline diagram, they will be much more responsive to you. Keep notes in your contact database of a few personal details, so that you can follow up and ask questions that lend a personal touch to your contact.
Your larger success is directly related to the achievement of those in your MLM business. It would make sense for your to make a significant investment into the lives of these vital MLM team members.
