Secrets Of Building MLM Downlines; Part One
By: Michael Brymer
This article will show you how to quickly build Multilevel Marketing (MLM) downlines.
Being an MLMer you will come across a situation where you find a person who may be able to bring in a lot of members into your downline, but they may not feel that they are currently in a position to participate.
In this situation you can use the advice in this article to influence them into joining and expanding your team.
Here are some options:
1. Firstly do your best to get them without any promises.
2. Promise to put X amount of members under them.
3. If it is possible with your MLM, open a few positions under yourself. Sign your self up for the first three, four or five positions one under the other. Your first five members are therefor yourself, all placed one under the other in a straight line. (If your MLM doesn't allow this then you may like to sign up some close relatives :)
You then start building your downline under your bottom position under you. Let's say you make a group of 10, 20 or 30 members under your bottom position. You then find someone who can bring in a large downline or has a large list of contacts, a heavy hitter.
Offer that person one of your positions under you as a means of sweetening their decision making processes. How you arrange the proposal is up to you. You may give him or her the position straight away or transfer the position to him or her after X amount of people join under that position.
Of excuses available to any current MLMer, his or her company won't allow them to join another MLM company is the most used. He or she can volunteer another person. (See my coming article on Japanese MLMers).
Now, let's say you own five positions under you and under those five positions you have 30 members. You find the Heavy Hitter and he or she agrees to your proposal.
Which of the five positions are you going to give that person? I'd give the Heavy Hitter the bottom free position you own just above the 30 members. Depending on the structure of your pay plan you may want to place him or her into a different position.
Don't go explaining that you have five positions to which you would give him or her one. Just tell them that you have, not "one" but "a" position available if they can give you a quick decision. For large list owners building a downline may only be the click of a mouse depending on the target area that the list falls into.
You may at times have the opportunity to meet members in other MLMs. Find out who their sponsor is etc. You are always looking for bigger fisherman with a bigger net. Keeping lists of big players is a great thing to have. With a list like that you can move a whole lot faster. This will also be covered in my Japanese MLMer article.
If you like this approach and it works for you, then you will want to repeat it for your other positions or open more positions and build under them and repeat the above. Other advantages of building under these open positions is to be able to give them to someone you love.
