Title: Upliners - help
Post by: LesleyPearce on August 22, 2006, 02:44:27 AM
Hi everyone. I'm Lesley, I joined GDI a week ago. Does anyone have the same problem that I have?
My 7 day free trial ended yesterday, but I have not been able to do anything, because I am unable to contact my upline. I was told, when I signed up, that the upline would contact me and help me to get started. But that hasn't happened. I can't get hold of her by email.
Does anyone have any helpful suggestions? Please.
Lesley.

Hi Lesley,

Did everything work out for you? I hope so and I hope you can contact your upline sponsor. Are you using the services yet? I especially like that we get 10 email addresses.

Have a Good Day

Vikki

Lesley,

Everything you need has already been sent to you from GDI. Upline or no upline  - it doesent matter. Take responsibility for your business and don't focus on your upline. Do I think they should contact you... yes... but think about it. It really doesn't matter! Simply invite people to watch your movie.

Yes it is true that GDI sends you everything you need. You have all the information and if you want to be successful you have to take charge of your own business.

I also think it is very important that your upline contacts you, why would you let your team of members that will be making you money in the future make mistakes that you may have already made before you started becoming successful. I feel that uplines should at a minimum contact there members and welcome them to the business and get them started in the right direction.

NO we cant hold every members hand everyday, but we can start them off in the right direction and be there for them when they hit a road block. I personally have had over 100 members sign up under me in my listbuilder, in less than 3 weeks. Can I help each one constantly on a daily basis, no way, thats way too hard. But I have contacted every member and I have told them where to get started. I have told them if they need me contact me. I have let them no what things have been successful for my team and what has not.

It doesnt take much to be a good sponsor, and in the long run it all works out for everyone.

I wish I knew what to tell you. I have been with GDI for 1 month now. I have sent several emails to my upline starting with my sponsor. I have gone all the way up the 4 levels. No one has replied to my emails. Upline support? I don't think so. Good Luck!

People - Stop complaining and focus on building your business. This is very simple!
(I mean this in the right way - please don't take it wrong.)

Start with yourself. Be the upline you wish you had if that is important to you!
Remember this when you sponsor people. Make a difference.

If its to be its up to me!  Right?  ----->  Absolutely!

#1 Resolve to never quit!

#2 Invite - Follow-up - Repeat

Cheers

Alan I agree you have to take responsibility of building your own business and regardless of whether you have a helpful upline or not, don't give up.  Keep at it and be determined to make it successful.

BUT.....

Having said that I can also see why these people are disappointed.  If you build a downline and are going to profit from the work of these people in your team or downline, then you should be more than willing to help them out if they need it.

Even if they don't ask for it, if you want your downline to stick with the program and make a go of it, then it does help to contact them and be helpful with them.

Not everyone comes into GDI knowing how to promote it and the best ways of doing so.  I was very lucky I didn't join GDI until I already had a fair bit of Internet Marketing experience, so I know how to promote it, but not everyone does.  Those people do need help and more than just the email that comes from GDI.

You have no idea how many people have told me they wish they had joined my team because their upline don't help them.  Even though they aren't in my team I have helped them out more than their upline ever has.

I have had people contact me in tears because they aren't getting anywhere and they keep contacting their upline and don't get a response.  I have had these people wanting to quit and join under me but they can't do that - and I think that's drastically unfair to them.  These people that I know - they are giving it all they've got the best they know how and it just makes it all the harder for them when they get no help whatsoever from their sponsors.

I don't care how successful they are, they still owe it to their team members to help them out - after all these are the people that are getting them into the position they are in.

I know I've raved on a bit, but I was in touch with one of these people this morning, who I have become friends with even though she's not in my downline, and she was so upset that it just makes me really mad.  I wish she was in my downline because I can see how hard she is trying and how determined she is to make it work, and it does make me really mad to see her so upset because she can't get any help from her upline.

Just my 2 cents worth

Yes you can't sit around waiting for other people to tell you

what you should be doing because apparently they aren't going to help you anyway..

So start listening to as much training as you can .. you the GDI lead capture pages and promote

There are many Free ways to promote GDI.. You just need to stay patient , persistent

and focused

Michael,

Like all passwords and personal information KEEP IT PRIVATE!

Having an upline member tell you that he or she will set up everything for you and then do all the rest of the work so you can get the check is down right bogus.† The only person responsible for your success is you.† If there are things that you want to do and do not know how, first reach out to your upline.† No help, try here in the Forum.† Again I respectfully tell you that be watchful to the FREE ADVICE people will give you.†

Build relationships through IM and emailing with those so quick to give you advice.† ASk them how it is working for them. Ask questions of them to see just how much more their knowledge base might be ahead of yours.† And if the advice goes againest your own beliefs, please ignore it until you find advice that matches your beliefs.

I have found that here in this Forum as well as the many others I belong to that too many people are in a hurry to spout the next greatest thing since sliced bread.† They shout from the rooftops how good another program is to help you build your GDI business and when you question them you find out that they have personally only sponsored 4 or 5 people - and not one with the system they recommend.

Well I will stop at that because otherwise I could go on and on and bore everyone who has had these same thought as you have posted.† I wish you good luck and much success.† Success is here in GDI for the taking.

See You At The Top!

Hey Michael - I wouldn't give anyone your ID & Password - just ask for simple instructions on how to do something. This way you will be able to help your downline in the future  8)

Hello Marvin;
I log on to the Forum 'once every blue moon'.
Your advise to Michael Fernald,s post is right on the money.
With your attitude you'll just have to be successful!
One more subject: Don't ever listen to the so called Millionair Gurus.
All they try to do is selling you information that enriches THEIR bankaccounts.
That by the way, includes several GDI members who have the bucks to have 30,000 + in their downlines!
Best wishes to you.
Werner.

I do it for my donwline ... I hope that they actually take the templates I provide and do it for themselves ... but it is ultimately my responsibility ... at least in my view.

I try provide everything in one area and automate it so it can replicated ... newbies just have to tell their new sign ups to go  to my member site and it's all laid out ... I did as much for them but also to simplify my day and lessen direct contact while still provide solutions instantly-Nevertheless I always answer e-mails

I know how frustrating it is to not hear from your upline.  I just started with GDI and feel that it is a great opportunity. 

I had become overwhelmed and frustrated with what to do, how to do it, where to send it, etc.  I finally decided that I wasn't going to let anyone stop me from being successful.  I searched the internet for tips, tricks, ideas, suggestions, etc. and was fortunate to find quite a bit from GDIers who were generous enough to post them.  Maybe being stubborn was my motivation, maybe it was determination or both.  I'm not sure. 

Don't let the frustration stop you from being successful.  I am now working with a member of my upline (not my sponsor) who is as new to this as I am (but doing much better).  We are, together, finding ways to promote GDI.

I have this posted on my wall next to my computer:

Donít Quit


When things go wrong
As they sometimes will
When the road youíre trudging
seems all uphill
When funds are low
And the debts are high
And you want to smile
But you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest, if you must,
But donít you quit.
Life is funny with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about,
When you might have won had you stuck it out.
Donít give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when youíre hardest hit
Itís when things seem worse that you must not quit.

I wish you success!!!

  >:( I can only echo the sentiments of people who are complaining about the complete lack of contact from their upline. I have been in for a couple of weeks and with the exception of their "Welcome Email" my repeated attempts at contact to ask pertinent questions about building this business have fallen on completely deaf ears.  >:(

Curious that they seem to care nothing for the maintenance of their own business, insn't it?

The only thing any of us can really do is commit to treat your downline better than we were treated. I was always taught that once you have a downline, your assignment and commitment should shift to primarily building their business 1st and then your own. This means....answer questions, share effective tools, help create their downline.  Doing it that way will, without a doubt create a strong organization that you can count on income from for a very long time. 


Title: Why newcomers don't get help from their upline
Post by: DonovanBaldwin on August 20, 2009, 08:43:38 AM
I joined my first network marketing/mlm venture in 1996 after having done mail order and direct marketing since the early 90's.  Since then, I have gone online, joined other ventures, been very successful with some, moderately successful with others, and wish I had never bothered with the rest...except for what they ALL taught me.  One of the lessons I learned from many of these programs is NOT to expect help from my upline.

It is sad, but true, that many people who sign up for GDI are hoping, even expecting, to get help from their upline.  After all, a great deal of the advertising you see for GDI and similar opportunities talks about training, resources, and guidance, and often help from those who have joined before you is stated or implied.

The problem is that most of a person's upline is made up of people who either did not get or did not seek this help themselves.  Therefore, they are as ignorant as the newbie now seeking assistance.  Most who succeed in these sorts of programs are those who seek out resources and train themselves.  Also, those who stick with it and don't give up.  You will make mistakes, but if you keep making mistakes, you will learn.  Then you can be an upline member who can help his or her downline to success.

By the way, this forum is an excellent source for guidance from those who have been there, done that.

G'day mates [guess where from]-sorry no prize.....

What a fantastic place this forum is, just what I need. I am a returning GDI'er, tried twice before, with zilch success, but have this feeling that somehow this program will work, so have committed myself to 12 month this time, regardless of help or otherwise from uplines, and down-lines that appear to ignore you offers of help.

One problem I see with the team approach [which I am in] is that your direct upline could be a complete Newbie and know less that oneself, also a language problem can arise too, as I am in this potential situation it will be an interesting ride, and I feel that this forum could be a godsend.

Thanks for what I have already learned from you all, be back soon.

Welcome To Our GDI Family

This thread is imparitive and the most viewed without much of a result. Yes, you joined and have all the needed enthusiasm which will not get you to the level desired. So, what is the issue?

No one would like to research and all is focused on either speed and finishing  recruiting more people without knowing what GDI is all about...

Just considered allowing us to earn your consideration and walk you through all of GDI and you will see your unique vision will happen with free real hands on support. We call it "Real Human Interaction".

When you desire to purchase a house why would you ask someone who never experienced keeping one? That is what is happening since GDI concept. All look for the quick result. Well there is none!

Nevertheless, if you have no real support from experienced sponsor just contact me 24hrs a day below you will see my 24hour method of contact.

We invest in people and our Efforts, Revenue and Resource...

So no more viewing this thread and lacking a way to get this right the first time.

Just Saying,

 ::)William
