Do you care if your down-line network is growing in numbers? Or are they motivated?
If you are an individualistic person who only cares for yourself, you are in the wrong business. MLM members are independent and unsalaried sales people. In other words they are the company’s independent agents and they only earn their income from the sales they made.
Everyone in the network is working towards a common goal— that is to make money. To make money in the multi-level marketing business or MLM it needs members in a network to promote and sell the company’s products or services and they will be compensated with promotions and monetary gains.
Each member is directly dependent on the performance of their down-line for their success. If your down-line really is holding the reins that can make or break your business or can propel you upward in the network, then do you have the quality of a good leader that would make them work with you?
Quality No.1-Think big
A good MLM leader aims high and has big goals for himself and his down-line. If your targets are low and are easily achievable, you are not setting a high standard to follow. Besides he has to made their network popular so as to attract people to join them.
It is the job of the leader to motivate his down-line and provide them with the knowledge to recruit more members. The leader without a goal for his weekly and monthly targets will eventually fade and crumbles. Without a realistic targets, your down-line will not be motivated enough to push themselves. So as a leader you have to coach them and make sure they employ the right tactics on how to recruits.
Quality No.2-Be a guide to your down-line
Besides taking the initiative and motivating and guiding your down-line, leader has the responsibility to accompany recruits when they are out there prospecting. Other than conducting their own workshops and seminars, leader has to see that their down-line is doing it correctly too.
Quality No.3-Be results-orientated
To be a good leader, you have to lead by example. If you want your down-line to achieve a monthly $1,000 in sales, you must make sure you can top it up and sell $2,000. If you want them to get three new prospects every month, be sure that you can recruit more than three to show that you walk your talk.
Quality No.4-Be an inspiration to your down-line
Your results you have achieved will inspire them to work harder. People are motivated by successful individual who can prove to them that with hard work and the right strategies and tactics, anyone can also have the same success as you do. Sometimes you have to brag about your new sports car you have just bought or the new house in Beverly Hills you have just moved in to show them that your business opportunity works. After that, what you say gets noticed and you have just earns their respect as a leader.
