Keep Away From My Downline!

Keep Away From My Downline!
By Michael L. Sheffield

Prevent other network marketing companies from luring away your new recruits.

Q: I recently joined an MLM company and have been building a sales team. Last week one of my downline members attended an opportunity meeting and was solicited by another distributor to join a completely different company. I'm concerned about having my people go to meetings now. It doesn't seem fair. What should I do?

A: This is an issue of questionable integrity and unethical behavior as well as a direct violation of the policies and procedures mandated by most MLM companies today. Obviously, you've worked hard to recruit your downline. Motivating your distributors into action and building product and company loyalty is hard enough without being sabotaged by others in the same company.

As you would expect, there are many companies looking for ways to recruit new distributors. While I personally recommend monogamy when it comes to the company you represent, it's not uncommon today to see people be members of more than one company at the same time. You should always assume this is the case. This is usually allowed under the company rules, but there are typically strict rules a company sets forth pertaining to conduct concerning what's called "crossline sponsoring."
