Just think of it, sleek, slim, trim physiques, and all because of you. Think of the healthy minds and bodies lifting weights, running, jogging exercising at your command. You're achieving your dream as a: oops sorry, wrong slant. Just think of it, a sleek, efficient, lean, and mean downline operating with optimum efficiency. Now, that's better, that's the kind of personal trainer needed in the wonderful world of affiliate marketing.
Have you always wanted to be that proactive personal trainer that gets your downline moving towards profits? You can be, and further your tier two income if you do what great personal trainers do. Consider the following five things a personal trainer needs to do to promote the effectiveness of their online team.
Just like a fitness club guru who's always at the gym, you need to be available for your downline. This is especially true for those downline members new to the affiliate marketing game. A new member of your team may want to engage in article writing and an article marketing campaign. However, they may not know where to start. You need to be available to answer their questions concerning article promotions and any other marketing topic. Have a virtual "open door" policy so your downline can reach you when they need you.
Your downline wants to know that their opinions are valued. Show them that you value their input by encouraging them to offer their thoughts and ideas concerning affiliate marketing. First off, they will see you as a personal trainer open to always learning yourself. You will not come across as a know-it-all who looks down on others ideas as inferior to yours.
Secondly, you will learn from your downline. They come from different occupations. This means they have different education, experiences, career training, and outlooks. These can serve your affiliate business well. You can synthesize all of this diversity into making your operation a well-rounded one open to new systems and processes.
Like a personal trainer in the health and wellness field, you need to give your team resources to improve performance. This may mean providing pre-written promotional scripts, e-mail content, and articles. It may mean sending them product samples. It may also mean offering them online tutorials, e-books, and audio seminars for business building. Concerning article marketing you may want to give them a crash course in effective article writing.
A personal fitness trainer provides information on nutrition and exercise regimes. As a downline personal trainer, you need to nourish your downline with the marketing essentials that grow business.
Change or Modify Behavior
A personal fitness trainer will change people's bad exercise and eating habits. Or, they will at least attempt this. You need to change bad marketing habits or the inactivity of downline members who are not producing. While this is often difficult to do, you should at least attempt to change or modify their marketing behavior.
A downline member may be creating boring uninformative articles to promote their affiliate business. You can give them article samples and clear direction on what constitutes effective article writing. They may only be relying on banner ads to further their business. You can try to modify their marketing behavior so they undertake different marketing initiatives. It's all about getting them to see and practice new ways of doing things.
A good personal fitness trainer rewards their students with praise. They may also offer training session discounts or free training sessions occasionally. This is to motivate further their clientele so they continue with quality performance. You need to do the same with your downline. Reward those downline members who respond positively to your instruction. Praise them. Give them bonus products, an extra cash payment, product discounts, and leadership positions in your team. When you reward good performance, you get even better performance.
Work at being that personal trainer that downline members enjoy. Take the time to implement the methods that make your downline want to perform up to your expectations. Show them that you're there for them to help them build their affiliate business faster.
