What is Multi Level Marketing?
These are programs where you will get paid a commission on the people that you refer to join the program. These people that you refer to the program are placed in your down-line and you may get paid a one off commission, or more commonly a monthly commission for as long as that person stays a member.
‘Multi Level’ means that with most MLM programs you get paid on multiple levels. For example, you may get paid a commission for five levels down. So not only do you earn commission on your own referrals, but also on their referrals, and their referrals and so on for five levels.
The number of levels will vary between different MLM programs.
So who are the most successful people in MLM programs?
The most successful people are the ones with large teams, not only on that first level but on all levels.
That means that you need to be a good referrer and recruit as many people as you can to place in your first level, but how do you fill up the other levels?
For you to be really successful in MLM programs, not only do you need to be successful at recruiting new members, but your team members need to be successful also. If they aren’t they will more than likely quit and then you’re team is not going to grow if your members keep quitting.
This is why it is very important for your team to be successful and why it is very important for you to help them be successful.
Your team members may need your help with learning how to promote the program and refer new members. Perhaps they haven’t had much, if any, experience in MLM’s or Internet Marketing and just don’t know where to start.
Always be a good team leader. Communicate with your team members and teach them about the MLM program. Teach them what they need to do to become successful. Teach them how to promote the program and teach them how to teach their own team members.
One of the best ways to do this is to set up a website dedicated solely to your MLM business. Set up your website to explain in easy step by step details how the MLM program works. Explain the products the program offers and explain the pay structure of the program.
Explain exactly what your team members will need to do to make the program successful for them. Explain how they need to promote the program and give them examples of the methods that you personally use to promote the program.
Whenever you have a new member join refer them to your website, encourage them to read through the website and to use the methods that you have recommended.
Work together with your team members and help them to do well, and you will do well also.
