Keeping active affiliates in your downline is one common problem for almost all SFI affiliates. Having said that let me straight away refer you to SFI Success Rule 4 which simply states…”Work with the workers.” It goes further to expatiate, “Way too many people focus on QUANTITY. They sponsor dozens; even hundreds of affiliates–which is great–but it is ultimately QUALITY that is the real key. Once you've found or developed 3-5 topnotch affiliates, you're going to see a lot of great things happen with your commission check. How do you develop quality affiliates? It's real simple: WORK WITH THE WORKERS!” Take these statements to heart instead of feeling down because some of your affiliates have decided to quit.
Read all SFI literature/training/sponsoring tools and implement what they advise you to do to keep your affiliates. If you have done so and all in your powers to make your affiliates stay active and they choose to quit, do not despair. You also do not need to unduly blame yourself. Many affiliates decide to quit for many and varied reasons which may have nothing to do with you as their sponsor. Just find a way to “work with the workers” and you will be OK. Lead by example and let your enthusiasm permeate downline with your routine communications. That way, your business will continue to forge ahead even if some of your affiliates choose to quit. That is the best advice I can give now.
