Tick. Tock. Another Network Marketing Team Member Drops Like A Rock.
As the industry wide statistic goes, you have 63 days to get a new
member of your team 63 days to get them to make money in your opportunity or
he/she is history. Somehow the vision of
“you go and sponsor three and then teach those three to sponsor three who will
then go and get three each”…well, that vision has faded over the past couple of
months. All they see is the money they
put into buying into your network marketing business plus the monthly autoship
This is not saying that you have not tried to get their business kick-started with them. Most all of us focus on getting a new member of our group to start generating some activity be it online or offline. However, it is almost as though all the answers we had while pitching the new recruit do not hold true once they realize that they have to work the business in order to get it working for them.
Let’s be perfectly honest, in order to build an organization that will provide substantial residual income will take months for the overly ambitious and even years for the most seasoned of us. When a brand new network marketer who has paid anywhere from $250 to $500 to join your business and then a monthly autoship of around $100 realizes that the $2 or $3 residual (from his/her purchases) is a far cry from walking the beaches of the world, you have a problem retaining that person.
There are online affiliate programs that you can join and introduce your team members to. These will serve as a means of keeping new (and even old) team members focused on building your mlm business.
Why? Affiliate programs will pump immediate cash into their bank accounts. No longer will they feel as though all they keep doing is shelling out money for autoship and marketing tools for their (your!) business.
You have to be careful of affiliate programs. Some offer you a tiny amount, a small percentage of the sale, to promote their product or service. This becomes burdensome as you, and your team members, find yourselves working even harder for a small amount of money. Worse yet, it becomes a distraction to their building their (and your) business.
Find an affiliate offer that practically sells itself and pays out a large commission. This will get an unstoppable revenue stream flowing to you and your team members which can then fund the building of their (your) network marketing business.
How many of your team members are approaching 63 days without having made back their initial investment?
