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.

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.

Get Inventive

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.

Work Together

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.
