Building a successful downline team: Questions for you

Some questions for you if you’re building a successful downline team:

  • Have you ever joined a program that seems to be working for everyone else but you?
  • Is your drop-out rate just as fast as your sign-up rate?
  • Do you wonder why it is that you are not doing as well as the others are?


Problems you are facing building a successful downline team

Well, our problems building a successful downline team stems from one of two things or a combination of both. Read them below:

  1. You do not have the backbone support of your upline.
  2. You do not provide a backbone support for YOUR downline.

For example, using affiliate marketing as an example, it is not about who can get the most persons in their downline – it is who can get the most productive, goal- oriented persons in their downline.

Having been through the rigors of starting an Internet home business myself, I came to realize that I was not being properly motivated. I had to do my own research and experiments to get to where I am today.

Yes, I did get messages from my upline, but those were the generic messages set by the system. These people had no creativity. Do you really think they were interested in making money?

I certainly don’t. But I am also guilty of this. That’s what I did when I started my first couple of programs.

Needless to say, I failed! That’s why I am qualified today to tell you what will work when you are starting a home business in which a downline is required.


Building a successful downline team: Tips you need to know

Here are some tips to help you in building a successful downline team:


Send a personal welcome message

Send a personal welcome message to each of your downline members. Let them know where to find training tools and make yourself available to help them get started on the right path.


Help them understand the program

Make sure each individual understands the program that they’ve signed up for. You can’t effectively sell what you don’t know about. Explain what they are uncertain about.


Show them the benefits if joining the program

Remember that you are dealing with humans that have the same goal – to make money. Show them the benefits of being a part of your team. Give them your contact email address and let them know their sponsor is a real person – like them.


Help them duplicate your success

Teach them to duplicate what you’ve done. The big secret in affiliate marketing or any business that requires building a downline is not how many you people you can recruit – it is how well you can motivate your team to duplicate your efforts. Bottom line – you will never be successful if your team isn’t.


Make them feel wanted

Make them feel wanted. Let them know your recruitment “secrets”. Create a chain effect by having them pass that information onto their downline.

Keep them motivated by sharing information on e-books, resources or tips that you’ve found to be successful. Ask for their ideas for making the team stronger.

If you have a website, provide a discussion board so your downlines can meet and share tips, even brain-storm.


Help the team

Remember that everyone is not the same. You may have a member in your team who may not be as successful in recruiting and training as the others. Do not let them fail! Even if it means doing it for them.

Your hard work will be reflected in your commission checks. That particular member might be going through a rough time at the moment.

I am not telling you to enquire, but chances are they will pick themselves up and be more motivated to continue if they are aware that the “team” [to coin a phrase] “has their back”.


Following up is important

If you are not good at following up or contacting persons, there are many systems on the market that will do this for you. Each individual is different – you may not be very adept at public speaking or keeping in contact with your downlines.

If you are such a person, try to find a system that can easily automate these tasks for you. That is if your primary program does not offer such a system.


Your downline team is important

To sum this article up. Always treat your downline members as your business partners. That’s what they really are.

For your partnership to be successful, you need to build a personal relationship with them. Let them know you can be contacted for advice on any aspect of the business.

You are only as good as your team. Your success is dependent on the team’s effort.
