The Downline Partners Referral Forum is a way for
people from all the different online business
opportunities around the world to come together
and collaborate without walking over each other.
Forum threads here serve more than just the
purpose of communication between members.
Every single forum thread is also an ad that
can be used by all members for all kinds of
purposes, be it marketing, support, training,
etc... all forum links are ads that you can use
simply by replacing www in the link by your
ALL the links to any of the business opportunities
posted anywhere in the Downline Partners
website or forums are controlled by the Customization Center available in the member's
area. There you can set your referral ids for all
the online businesses that were previously added
to Downline Partners. Doing so will make sure
that if you send traffic to Downline Partners
your visitors will see YOUR business opportunity
links throughout the site and forums, even
within other member's posts. This means that
the entire community is at work promoting,
supporting, training, and helping you and your
members FOR you! Within the customization center you can also pick which programs you want to promote by clicking the + or - icons to add or remove them from your Dynamic Directory.
If the online business opportunity you want to
work with is not currently supported by
Downline Partners it means that it is available
to be claimed and you can submit it to us. Once
added to Downline Partners, your id will become
the source id for the entire community for this
program. Then a Company Code is created and
you will be able to post together with your
team about your program... share the work and
benefits... grow together, as other teams will.
At some point someone who is not in your
personal downline but also is a member of your
program might post something absolutely brilliant
about your program. On other forums you'd be
hesitant to send people to this thread because
you might lose your referrals to that other member
but here it doesn't matter who post the messages,
if you send people to the thread, they will see your
link throughout the thread so you will not lose
referrals to competition... your traffic is yours.
Basically the better your posts are about your program,
the more attractive your program will be as others will
want to use your material. For this reason I recommend
to keep posts specific to one program at a time. The
posts you and your team make about your program
increase the value of the program in the community
as more and more quality content is available for use
with that program. On your personal website or blog
etc... you can keep track of threads, link to threads as
marketing tools for your program, pick those you like
best to recommend etc... As you send people to your
Referral Threads, they may decide to join Downline
Partners and if that happens, then you'd have a new
member for your newsletters.
You also have private Referral forums available to you for newsletters,
team brainstorming and collaboration, polls etc...
The point of the dp Referral Forums is that once something is posted it becomes available for
use by everyone else just like you can use
everyone else's posts... everyone wins. The
training sections of the forum is where members
from all the different programs can collaborate
and help train each others in a generic way, just
pure training and advice without marketing.
Over time we should see quite a wealth of
knowledge in there as experts from all the
businesses collaborate and share generic
advice and tips.
This is sometyhing that's been missing in the industry for quite some time.
