Have to have a moan!! Why do people take the trouble to look at the site and join up and put up a profile and then never come back. I have about 50 referrals and only about 10 are active. Why join if your not interested- and why arent they be interested. I think this is a great site and theres something here for everybody.

Well at least you have 10 active referals that is something. I joined MY LOT and forgot all about it for about 3 months til someone sent me a private message asking why I was inactive. I then remembered I had joined and have been active ever since. Send your inactive referals a private message and let them know what they are missing here at MY LOT. You never know you may get some of them to start being active.

Very good idea. Maybe it will make them have a second look. Thanks.

That was what I was going to suggest, too. I spent a lot of years working with network marketing... and you really have to view it as "RELATIONSHIP marketing." If you get to know your referrals then you have a much better chance they will be active... friends tend to work for friends. Even so... consider it a HUGE success if just HALF your referrals end up active.

I have people that signed under me and haven't done a thing. They must have thought that just by signing up I got credit for it. I have told them that they need to become active in order for any credit to be given. They just don't seem interested. Maybe they don't think it worth the time. You are right in this being a great site. The people are friendly and have offered great advice, a shoulder to cry on, a joke to make you smile.

I think you are lucky to have 10 active referrals. I have five referrals and two of them are active only some of the time. I usually try to keep them interested by sending them an email every now and again to ask them how they are enjoying the site. Like you, I can't understand why they lose interest, as there are discussions here to suit everybody.

This site is very suited to all different types of people. I enjoy it. Ive even got a mission tomorrow from here. There was a post about men wearing watches on the left arm . The poster was wondering why all men do this. I never noticed before and I wear mine on my left- Does this mean Im masculine or should ladies wear on the right. Im going to be staring at a lot of wrists tomorrow!!! People will think Im mad.

yes this certainly does annoy me too. Not so much yet on mylot but i had a business going where one could start a downline and about 40 girls joined under me and about 15 ever did any work. Out of those 15 there were about 8 constant workers. The rest joined and did nothing some didnt even answer my emails or let on that they were still alive. weird. i have gotten used to it and expect it now and have stopped getting annoyed about it, i use alot less energy that way!!!

I know what you mean about signing people up to something only to find they dont participate. Its annoying and a waste of your time.

Yes this is a kool site and people tend to do these kinda of things,maybe because they dont wanna join in first place but they do only for the sake of friendship or perhaps to make someone a bit happy,other than that there is no real intention to participate in the forum of their own.Sometimes it does depend on the available time aswell free people like me do have loadz of time to sit on online and participate in the forums but others who are involved in some stressfull jobs dont have the luxury to do so,they think they can manage to use the site but in the end they get fail poorly.what do you think?

I think they forget their passwords or they are all feeling drunk or lonley when they sign up and then dont bother with it.

I think age is irrelevant on the internet. In fact the older you are the wiser in most cases and were here to learn from each others ideas and experiences- or at least I am.

Well I only have 4 referrals, and a few of them posted a few things here and there, but now they aren't doing anything. I see why someone would be upset, it makes me feel like I only wasted time when I could have done something more worth my time. Hopefully I can find out some good ways to get more people to join and keep them active.

I joined out of curiosity, I was active for a few days when I had time, then I got busy and forgot all about it until I got a notification saying that you(a friend) had made a new post.

I guess a lot of people join and then forget to come back.

I agree, I have 4 referals and none are active. I cant stand it, why would some one sign up and not use it. I dont get it. Why would some one not want to make money from there thoughts.
