MLM Tip: Sponsoring Up

It is a point often missed by budding MLM’ers, in order to grow a large team and really engage leverage to its maximum potential it is imperative you sponsor up.



So what does sponsor up really mean, what will it do for your MLM business?

Sponsoring up is sponsoring someone who is as good or better than you, someone who has ambition and good people skills.

So let’s look first at how you identify those who are as good as or you or better. Amongst your friends you probably have a mixture of people:

  • Those who want more than they currently have and are willing to go the extra mile to get it.
  • Those who want more than they currently have and they tell you the reasons why they can’t have it, afford it, or do it.

The ones you want to consider approaching for your business are the ones who are willing to go the extra mile to get what they want. They have desire and an expectation that they will achieve success. These people will be easier for you to work with, especially in the early stages of your MLM career.

It will be easier to mastermind with them, to set joint goals with them and do all the things you need to do to create momentum in your business.

People with aspirations and ambition usually like to associate with people with a similar mind set so the Network of people they know are more likely to be entrepreneurial. They are more likely to understand the power of leveraging and isn’t that exactly the kind of people you want to be around and to have in your business.

I know that you probably know people who are just a bit “down on their luck” at the moment and they are really good people and they really need to be in the business, and they would probably be really easy to recruit because they need the money, but let me ask you this, how are you going to help them?

At this point in your MLM career, if you have only just started, or maybe you have been in for a while and haven’t got the results you’ve wanted what are you going to teach them? You will find that you will invest a lot of time and energy trying to keep these people motivated. So why not let them be until you have some runs on the board sponsor up and start working with some strong people like you.

So how do you go about sponsoring up?

Get your MLM sponsor or upline leader involved in the process, make sure you brief your upline on your prospect and then get them on a three way call or to a one on one meeting.

Your upline will be only to pleased to work with you if you ask and show them your intention and business sense by consistently looking to sponsor up.

You will create greater momentum for your team and yourself and that really is what MLM is about it is about helping others achieve what they want then you will have everything you want and more

Yours in Success
