How do you get inactive team members doing nothing to start doing something?
How do you reach out to your inactive team members in your network marketing business?
This is a question I am being asked almost every time by network marketers.
In today’s post, I share my best strategies on how to reach out to your inactive team members.
It’s difficult when some people are clearly doing far more work than others in a team.
But this is network marketing per se.
With all that in mind, the first step in reaching out to inactive members is to know who they are and being attentive to their stories.
People become inactive for multiple reasons, and the reasons have to be taken seriously.
The reasons vary from mere apathy to outright hostility resulting from conflict and alienation.
Behind every person who drops out of network marketing, there is a unique story, or at least a unique twist to a familiar story.
Meeting them where they are and taking their experiences seriously opens up possibilities for reconnecting to your team.
Ask questions! If all your efforts do not re-engage a team member, try to find out if they are willing to share their reasons.
Keep the following tips in mind as you talk with them:
Tell the person that you are hoping to learn from his or her experience and listen to them.
Don’t be defensive or interrupt.
Ask questions to gain deeper insight.
Ask for permission to share what you learn with appropriate people to help your team improve.
Thank them for sharing and offer apologies for expectations that were not met.
And what will be the outcome? (Although not all) of the inactive team members might improved considerably, but I am sure your team will still be successful.
I’m not sure if all the above will be relevant to your particular situation, but hopefully it provides some points to consider, and if it then didn’t get improvements.
Then, I will encourage you to reach out to your inactive team members with a result based action!
How is this achieved?
Make a list of your downline distributors, divided into superstars, average producers and disasters.
The best way to put money in your pocket is to help your downline distributors develop downlines of their own.
Think strategically about where your time is best spent.
If you help an average producer who brings in a new distributor every other month, your time will likely result in the addition of one or two new distributors in his line.
However, if you help one of your superstars who already brings in two or three new distributors each month, your efforts might add five or six new distributors to your line.
Your motivational time is best spent with the best performers, and then spent developing potential superstars from your average producers.
Make sure that you also show them what’s possible.
Show them that you’re doing the thing you wish they were doing.
Go out there and build a new team.
Start bringing in new people and start recognizing those new people.
Inspire them by outworking them.
Show them what is possible and how best the work is done.
Build that new team
That might not re-awaken everyone, but it’ll re-awaken the right ones.
And that’s the aim in the first sense.
So go ahead and apply these strategies and see your team growing.
