Ten most important things you must do daily to succeed in this business:
1) The first thing you do is your to-do-list and secure your 11 VP.
2) Second go for the add-ons such as stream posts, genealogy mailers, ECA program etc to score additional VP's & hit the win tab for entering into daily draws.
3) Glaze through your team mails to see for questions that you may have received from your affiliates if you are already into this business for a while and you have a sizeable genealogy or any other issues that you may have to tackle such as recognitions etc and address them immediately.
4) Then you need to use your marketing tab to use it for advertising (find at least one site a day to advertise)
5) Study all the tabs in your affiliate centre on a daily basis focusing on few daily.
6) Set up a co-op and learn the art of co-oping (Ask your upline if he has an existing co-op, that you can be a part of. Always try to be part of at least one co-op. The more the better)
7) Always send criticism up and praise down. Never ever criticise, write or speak sarcastically about your upline in public. This sets a bad precedent in front of your affiliates.
8) Communicate with your affiliates at least once a week either through team mails or regular emails or even chat.
9) Mind your own business, not your upline's or any other persons above you.
10) Learn the art of DUPLICATION (Follow to get followed)
