Over the last week Toby and I have had the phones in our ears 24/7. Personally sponsoring 48 people in the last 5 Days… we’ve met a lot of new people.
As new Rockstars joined our team by the hour… we got to hear a lot of different stories from a lot of different people.
What Was the #1 Reason People Joined the Rockstar Team?
Aside from the fact that it’s a crazy low price right now, and we’re throwing in the most ridiculous bonuses….
Time and time again… it kept coming up, so we felt we needed to create a blog post to address this growing issue in the Internet/Network Marketing world. A lot of people are frustrated because Their Upline Sucks!
It seems to happen a lot in the Internet world of Network Marketing… a new Team Member forks out their credit card, signs on the dotted line… and then never hears from their sponsor again. They are left to figure out this Crazy Maze of Internet Marketing on their own.
So What is Our Opinion on Why Internet Uplines So Often Under Perform or Completely Disappear All Together?
- A lot of these “Gurus” see it as a numbers game. Traffic to Conversions… Conversions to Sales. Sure if you’re an affiliate marketer… that makes sense. But as a Network Marketer you are dealing with a whole different world. These are PEOPLE, not just emails in a lead list.
- Many Marketers turn to the Internet because they don’t like Traditional Style Network Marketing (Prospecting, Home Parties, Recruiting etc). They come on the Internet to build a downline so they don’t have to talk to people… you think that might be a problem?
- Internet Marketers are easily distracted by shiny objects so you often see them jumping from opportunity to opportunity (We met a guy that had literally bought into 9 home based businesses in the last year)
