Retention in network marketing seems to be a big problem. We hear it all the time, "why do they quit?" I didn't get it in the beginning but then again what did I know, right? It was more like the blind leading the blind back then. Recently I was listening to a training CD from Pro Eric Worre and what I learned was the absolute key to retaining your downline is for them to have small victories fast in the beginning. It makes sense...having success early on would get me fired up! So what does that mean? That could mean having a good experience with your product, hearing a success story, going to a meeting and meeting someone who shares their story, sponsoring a new customer, listening to a training call, or having someone special in their life say, "I'm behind you on this." Watch out! There is a 7-day timer on their back. We have 7 days to make sure they have several small victories or they are gone. If we continue to encourage them...reminding them why they joined and that they made a good decision, we have a much better chance of hanging onto them. What do you think?
