Diagram of Downline

A downline is a person you recruit to join your MLM company.


Your downline also includes all distributors that any of your downline recruit.


The above diagram shows the lady in orange has recruited three people to sell products. The lady in green has recruited two people to sell products. Thus the lady in orange has a total of 5 sales people in her “downline.” The lady in green has 2 people in her downline.

    I want to treat my downlines as an investment in their success so that the MLM organisation can succeed as a legitimate business.
    Many so called leaders treat their downlines as a money making machine and exploit them.
    There is NO shortcut to success and though the journey to success is long and hard, the destination is beautiful, just like Tim Sales and his website firstclassmlm.com…
    I owe my journey of success to you Tim as I thank God for knowing you…
