When you are doing any kind of referring.. From telling friends to play Sitizens with you to joining whatever program you are promoting.. You need to talk to people!
There was a GREAT discussion in the StartXchange Chat on Friday where a few members were talking about uplines not talking to their downlines. One of them even named names!
The point was that when you join a program or site under someone and never hear from them, you can feel alone, forgotten, etc. That’s not a good thing for someone who is just joining, and it’s not a good thing if you want them to join under you again.
There are so many tools already available it’s really not an excuse. The only excuse you have is either laziness, or not realizing you should do it. So I hope to change #2 for you today.
It’s as simple as PMing someone when they join, remembering who they are and saying HI to them in chat, and asking if they need help. Really, doesn’t take much time. But it does take effort.
IMO it will have profound effects on the activity of your downline. Tired of seeing people quit? Talk to them! Most people quit out of confusion or frustration. Most people join something because they’ve already been sold on the idea and want it. So help them!
