Probably the first question that is asked by an individual who is being recruited for a network marketing business opportunity is: How much can I make? The truthfulness of the answer is indicative of the quality of the opportunity.

The typical downline report about your sales organization would include the following information for you and the individuals in your downline sales organization:

1. Rank or position reached in the organization.

2. Levels below you or break-away position in the organization.

A leading direct seller says the following broad time management principles are applicable to virtually all tasks in a network marketing business – whether making sales presentations, handling incoming calls in response to ads, generating leads, making conference calls, or anything else.

1. Organize the data. Capture all information for later use, such as mailing lists, training meetings, business opportunity meetings, or other forms of follow-up.

2. Form an action plan to communicate effectively. You should have the right data in front of you when you need it, so that you have product information and opportunity information at your fingertips when you are communicating by telephone or in person.
