How To Be a Good Leader For Your Downline


Becoming a leader is not easy but it’s not too difficult either.  The skills that we should possess are the experiences of doing marketing methods  successfully.

Before we teach our downline, we must successfully complete the skill ourselves so we will have a successful experience to share and guide them down right path. This is so important before asking your downline to do something. Without enough successful experience we would not know what to show or tell them and of course, they will not be able to duplicate this for their business.

So in order to be a good leader, you must prepare the “what and how” to teach your downline.  Pointing them in the right direction can lead to a good result but conversely the wrong direction will guide them to a bad result that will make them leave the business.

In addition you have to provide your downline with some tools, like audio CD, motivational books, training videos, etc.  You have to be willing to take the time to help them one on one when needed. This is the type of attention that can motivate your downline to work harder. Asking them regularly about their progress and helping them solve any problems that may come up is also the sign of a good leader. Team meetings are also a great way to motivate your downline.

The last but not least is becoming a model for your downline. They will see what you do and follow. So becoming a good model will be good for your downline too. As a leader you have to do these consistently to keep your downline’s spirit so that it can boost teamwork and sales drastically. If your downline experiences success then you will be happy too because it means that you will get the benefit from their success and from the company. Finally don’t forget to improve yourself  as well as your downline in order to keep moving forward.

Remember as a leader for your downline you need to always do exactly what you say you are going to do.  This promotes integrity in all that you are trying to accomplish.

  1. Hello Patty, I love the part about pointing your downline in the right direction. Leaders have already viewed and read a tremendous amount of training material and it’s easy for them to recommend to their downline what will best assist them.

  2. Hi Patty! Absolutely right. To be successful in network marketing you have to be a leader, and leaders should always know where they lead.
    A good leader walks the path, before he takes his troops on it.

  3. Thanks Jeffrey 🙂 Yes, I agree – as leaders we can help sort through all the information and help point them in the right direction based on their skill and interest.

  4. Hello Patty,

    It appears that the Internet isn’t as hugh, as they say. Because we meet again. This time with a different marketing message.

  5. Hello Patty,

    You are so right! One of the things I’ve learned over the years is to sit down with a new team member the day they join and get them started on building their list. I will even make the first few calls for them to get them going. This is the simplest thing to duplicate and if they learn to start their team off the same way, they will have much better results.

    Thanks for the great article!
