Here’s another lesson I learned from Tom “Big Al” Schreiter: the major problem of network marketing leaders is that they believe that by squeezing harder you can get more milk. The real solution to get more milk is to get more cows. Another way of stating this is “you won’t make it to the next level of your MLM Compensation Plan with your current team.” Once you understand this powerful lesson, you will view “how you build your team” differently.
First of all, your current group got you to where you are today. That’s good. You should be happy about that and appreciate the people on your team. Unfortunately, for you to get to the next level in your company’s compensation plan, you can’t do it with your current group. You simply don’t have enough leaders and doers to make it happen. If you did, you would already be at the next level. You can try to “motivate” your tream and “preach” to them to get off their butts and go out and build a business, but you are really only wasting your time when you do this.
If you want to take your network marketing business to the next level, the best thing you can do is go out and sponsor another five or ten distributors and build another group. Bring in some new excitement, some new product users and some new leaders into your group. Create some new volume with new people.
Show your entire team that you are serious about your business by your actions. Let your team know that you love them and believe in them, but you aren’t waiting around for them to do something. Your team will be watching as you build a new team and the serious people will identify themselves and follow your lead.
The moral of the story is it’s much easier to increase your sales volume by building a new team than it is to try to motivate your current team to do more than they are already doing!
