We all know that rotating team members can be frustrating. Not only does it drain the production of the team, but oftentimes we miss the relationships we have developed with those team members. Sometimes quitting can be delayed, or eliminated stopped if you notice the signs your team member is going to quit your network marketing business.
Attrition is a big challenge in network marketing if you do not know how to keep people engaged in your business. Recruiting is great, but if you do not have the retention then, it is like you are filling a bucket with holes. Trust me; I know about this. I have been there more than once.
When you keep an eye out for these signs, you may know they are thinking about quitting before they even know it. If you can get in touch with them, figure out what is going wrong and help them work through it, you may be able to keep them on the team.
Lower Energy Level
Do you notice one of your team members has a lower energy level than usual? A lower energy level is one of the largest signs that something is wrong. If something happened that day that was negative, this could explain it, but otherwise, this could be a sign that they are getting ready to resign from working the business.
Less engagement goes right along with low energy. If your team member is not excited about your network marketing business anymore, the team member could be engaging in the business less and less. Less engagement should be a red flag when it comes to possible attrition.
Change In Attitude
If your team member normally has a cheerful and optimistic attitude and they begin to point out things that are going wrong with the company, the team or product, you could have a problem. They may just be looking for a reason to throw in the towel. Trying to show them how these things can be remedied may or may not help; it just depends on if they're definitely decided to quit.
These are some great ways to tell if your team member is going to quit your network marketing opportunity, but you may notice other signs as well. Try to keep everyone as engaged as possible through team calls, hangouts, meetings, etc. and you are going to be able to have higher retention.
