Longevity means long life. In network marketing it refers to the long life of your team members. Team members who stay with you for a long time help you to Build Income for Life. While increasing sign ups and building your downline is important, it is equally important to keep those already on your team involved and successful. In many cases it is easier to keep someone on your team rather than to find a new sign up for your team. Your long lasting team members will also have a better understanding of GDI and a larger network. Here a three ways to work towards that long life with your team members.
Keep Lines of Communication Open
Getting new sign ups can be hard work, but this is no reason to ignore your current downline members. Be sure current members know how to contact you. When you get a new email address or phone number, keep them in the loop with this information. If you haven’t heard from a team member in a while and they seem inactive, it’s up to you to reach out to them. It is just as important to occasionally reach out to team members as it is for them to be able to contact you.
The world of network marketing is always changing, so its important to change accordingly. If you and your team members have been with GDI for a long period of time, it’s important not to get into a rut. Doing the same things over and over again for marketing will get you the same results, if not diminishing results. To get bigger returns for you and your team, get inventive with marketing and team building strategies. Sharing these ideas with your team will keep them engaged and active.
Working together combines the first two tips. What better way to get creative and keep in contact with your team members than working together. Your downline should feel like they are a part of a team, not just a cog in a wheel. Working together keeps them interested in GDI and their team and helps to give them more power over their success, success that will help to keep them on board.
