How To Build a Large MLM Downline











 Rule number 1 in Life and MLM, “Never ask anyone to do something you wouldn’t do yourself.

If you want a huge MLM downline, lead by example.

The majority of people are looking for someone to help them solve their problems.

This is especially true in the MLM or network marketing world.  It’s been said many times, but it’s very true, “People don’t join MLM’s because of the company, the product or the compensation plan.  They join YOU.

As a general rule, new members join or sign up with a “Leader” that they believe can help them solve their problems and or help them achieve their dreams and goals.

Many so called “Gurus” will tell you to “Fake it until you make it.”

I don’t believe or teach this.  I believe and show my team members and downline how to gain the knowledge and experience they need to become “Leaders” and personally brand themselves.

Many MLM companies have excellent training to help you build your MLM muscles, and learn how to build your downline.  Many do not.

So for many people, just plugging into their companies trainings won’t work.  Additionally, even if your primary MLM company has great trainings, it never hurts to learn from the best in the industry.

I’ve been in the business, for quite a while and taken numerous classes and spent a lot of money to build up my MLM Leadership Muscles…  :-)

Knowledge is Power.  The more you know and practice refining your skills, the easier it is to build your MLM downline.

Of all the courses I’ve taken to help me learn how to build my downline and business, there are two that really stand out.

The first is excellent and has an extensive library and weekly trainings by Top MLM Industries leaders that will help you Brand Yourself, Create Leads, Build Your Downline and So much more.

Click on the Links to Discover the Systems that can help you Become a Leader and Show you how to Achieve your goals.

I personally use this system and used the techniques I learned to explode my downline and create a lead generating blog that placed #26 in the World in 2011 in the Top 50 MLM Blog Competition.

The System I Use To Build My Business

This next course helped me learn how to become a Leader and Attract Leads.  Click on the link to

Learn How To Create Free Leads

Remember, People join you not the company you’re in.  Invest in yourself, Brand Yourself and Attract the downline your looking for.

Here’s to your success.

Hi John,

Thanks for sharing those thoughts in here. I always believe that good leadership will cross boundaries and leads all organizations or any group to reach their goals. This comes not only in MLM but in any aspects of life.

Hey John!
You’re absolutely right about Multi-level marketing that it requires strong leadership skills. Having information about various marketing strategies is not enough because without knowledge one can’t achieve success. And only with proper knowledge, success is guaranteed. Thanks for highlighting these points.

Strong leadership with broad vision is required not only in Multi-level-marketing but in almost all other businesses. I have leart some very interesting points from this post. Thanks John.

the network marketer has many advertising tools at his disposal. Most MLM network marketing training centers around learning the pay plan, selling and marketing..

Hi Kristen,

Glad you like it. Be sure to stop by again. Are there any particular problems you’re having? If so, let me know and we’ll see about doing a post on it.


Wade May 7, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Hey John, I am going to to throw a spanner among the works here and suggest that a lot of this is not necessary if you work with a product centric company. In other words if you get a pile of customers on board who love your product and they then sign up and start sharing something that they love, there should be a business that grows organically. (It is a pity that we do not get notified of any follow up comments here)

Bruno Buergi May 7, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Hi John
You are right, people join Leaders. Therefore you have to learn from the leaders and you have to becomme a leader when you want to be successful in MLM. By the way. MLSP is really a great company to learn MLM the right way.

Hello Bruno,

Success leaves clues as they say. If you can take the lead and show others how to duplicate your efforts you are on the right path.

In my opinion MLSP is an awesome service that provides the tools that people need to expand their MLM businesses.

John May 7, 2012 at 5:08 pm


I will agree with you regarding having a company with the right product can help build your downline through autoship and reorders. However, very few companies have such products.

I think success is depends on the person making promotions and advertisements. Business and leads strategies are meant to make or break the company. It’s only a matter of making the right choice and taking the right actions.

Very well, John!

I think the “fake it until you make it” refers to adopt the right mindset, to act “as if” you were a leader already even though there is nobody who follows you.

cool post!


Alice Chen July 10, 2012 at 11:00 pm

You’ve hit the bull eye with this post. I think charity should begin at home and you should never sell what you would not buy. Pushing too much and then ruining relationships is kind of common in MLM but leading by example and maintaining ethics will go a long way and is the right way to market MLM products.

Hi John,

Excellent article – I must admit. Found the base line of the article to be informative and useful from a Business perspective. And you’ve mentioned a very important point in the article that to me carries a lot of weight and needs to be kept in mind whenever working with your business MLM is that most people are looking for someone to help them solve their problems.

MLM is a full time occupation that I don’t believe anyone gets successful at unless they are completely committed to it’s success. All of the work that needs to be done and more needs to be completed for MLM, advertising, marketing, networking, sales, you name it. It’s a tough business.
