Getting referrals and building downlines

For those that are involved in paid to action type sites (paid to read, click etc)often one of the hardest (yet sometimes most required) things to do is build your downline, many times it's the income/activity etc of referrals that make the program worthwhile. The same can usually be said when it comes to promoting many affiliate programs, the more people you can get to sign up the better off you are. Or the more people you can add to your list the more chance you have of selling your chosen product etc. The problem is that building a downline/list is usually a lot easier said than done - many people will recommend their chosen programs to friends only to be told they are being foolish trying to earn online, others will place a referral link somewhere and just hope for the best. With that in mind I created a page that will hopefully help when it comes to building your downline(s) - I've added some tips to increase traffic, along with some of my recommended downline builders etc. You can find the page here http://www.squidoo.com/downline-builders/ I will be updating this page often, and if anyone has some good downline building ideas I'd love to hear from you.

I agree with what you said about building a downline. It's a lot easier said than done. I'm creating my website and after I set it up I will have to promote it later. I will for sure visit your squidoo lense. I'm sure it will be of a lot of help for me. Right now I'm kind of lost with all the many things I have to do to get my blog going. Thank you for this information re08dz.

Getting set up first is always the most time consuming, but once done it's something that becomes a lot easier :-) Feel free to give me a yell at anytime if you need help with anything - I've set up several websites and blogs and while I may not be an expert I've certainly learnt a lot.

Thanks for offering your help. I'm almost done with my blog and I'm looking forward to visit squidoo page. Yes it's true that it takes a lot of time to set up a website especially when you are not that experienced with HTML. Thank you again and have a good day!

Good job on the Squidoo Page. My tip is focus on the doers. Make an offer that requires a person to do something. Or give them some small task. If they complete it, they become more likely to be someone you can successfully partner with.

Hi, Thanks and a good point. You often here people saying they have a huge downline but very few active members. I actually don't promote a lot of programs etc - when it comes to working online I have a couple of sites that I highly recommend and they are what I try to promote to others, if someone signs up I make a point of contacting them and letting them know I am always available for help etc whenever it's needed. By working one on one with people I'm given the chance to not only prove the program but myself as well, so from there if I feel I have something else that may be useful to them it's easier to pass it on.
