Motivating your downline

Sometimes motivating your downline feels like pulling teeth with a pair of eyebrow tweezers! They say they want a home based business and the success that comes along with it, but they aren't doing the work that it takes to get there.

So what are some ways you can motivate them?

For starters, 85-90% of the people you introduce to your opportunity will never even get started. They will quit before they try!

A few, maybe 5%  or so will sponsor a few people..............

....but when these new recruits fail to sponsor anyone new, that original 5% will usually quit.

That leaves the rest...

Not very many :-)

These people will reveal themselves right away. They are the ones that roll up their sleeves and get to work. They do the training in a timely manner, then they are chomping at the bit- ready to go.

So you have a few people that want to work.

How do you motivate them EVEN MORE?

1. Hold a contest- whoever enrolls the most new home business owners or sell the most product gets 20 free leads...

2. Have them help with a training call- recognize that they are in the games!

3. Have a "prize" for whoever promotes within the organization within a given month.

And don't forget to keep adding to your team. That way when a few quit, you won't feel the hit as much.

Remember the old saying..."Don't put all your eggs in one basket!
