The longevity of your downline members is one key to success with GDI. Having a strong team that is always growing will keep you earning commissions. But when team members don’t stay for long, you can find yourself scrambling to build your downline each month. The easy solution is to just retain team members while adding new ones, right? Well sometimes that is easier said than done. Here are a few ways to sweeten the GDI offerings and keep your team members around longer.

Contests

GDI has recently ramped up our contest offerings. At any given time, chances are we’re running a contest to give you a chance to win more cash from GDI. GDI contests are separate from bonuses, so they aren’t based on the number of signups you have. Currently, GDI members have a chance to win $25 for creating a GDI board on Pinterest or even $100 for sharing advice with us. These are chances to win cash from GDI for just taking a few simple steps. Have your downline members follow GDI on Facebook and Twitter to know about the newest contests. Always encourage your downline to enter for a chance to win cash from GDI. An affiliate earning money is more likely to stick around and work on building their business.

Education

People are much more likely to stick with a business when they understand it. This tip may seem like a no brainer, but often new downline members are confused and feel left behind by their sponsor. Don’t let this happen to you and your team. Organize what you have learned in your time with GDI in a way that is shareable with new members. Reach out to your downline when they struggle to help them along instead of letting them quit. Education for your downline can be simple and shared in the form of videos, emails, blog posts, or just a quick phone call.

Bonuses

GDI’s Learning Bonus is designed to encourage longevity. The bonus does not require new signups to get several signups of their own in a short time, but just encourages them to learn more about GDI. The Learning Bonus asks new affiliates to accomplish simple tasks like setting up their .WS email, and then rewards them with $25 when all tasks are complete. The Learning Bonus helps to create an educated downline and encourage them to make more money. Be sure your new signups know how to take advantage of the Learning Bonus.

Up Front Cost

To get started with many affiliate marketing programs there is a sizeable start up or up front cost. This cost might go to inventory, products you need, or simply the cost to have access to the business. These up front costs can be quite hefty, especially since you haven’t even had a chance to build your business yet. But this is not so with GDI. Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been with GDI for years, the cost is just $10 per month. Not only is this a low monthly cost, but it is the same cost that someone pays to simply get started with GDI. $10 is most likely the smallest amount of money you will need to start your own business and $10 per month is all it takes to start building income for life.

Inventory

Like many affiliate marketing companies, GDI offers you a great product to take advantage of and earn income as you share it with others. But unlike other companies, you don’t need to buy huge amounts of products that you must pay up front for and then find somewhere to store. With GDI, the product and services are all online. You have access to an unlimited number of products with just an internet connection and there is no need to pay up front for what you pass on to others. You simply pay $10 per month for GDI’s products and services and earn your income as you refer others. No up front fees, no products to ship.

Connect with Your Downline

You want to establish a level of comfort that ensures everyone in your network  can achieve their full potential. Try to offer help and guidance even before it is needed. All affiliates experience the same process and tend to share many of the same highs and lows. Everyone, even our most successful affiliates, had to start somewhere.
