‘If You Don’t Call Your Trading Partners Back, Why Don’t You?’


We recently conducted a poll of Top Echelon Network recruiters by posting a question in the Members’ Area.

That question was as follows:

If you don’t call your Trading Partners back, why don’t you?


The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of recruiters that selected each one:

  • I don’t have the time. — 2.0%
  • I haven’t made it a habit yet. — 1.0%
  • Following up is one of my weaknesses. — 2.0%
  • I’m not afraid of Drea. — 5.0%
  • Some other reason. — 6.0%
  • I always call my Trading Partners back. — 84.0%


From time to time, Network recruiters voice their concern about their Trading Partners calling them back. So . . . we decided to make that the focus of our weekly poll.

That being said, is it any surprise that 84% of those recruiters who participated in the poll chose “I always call my Trading Partners” back as their answer?  The question becomes this one: would the Trading Partners of those recruiters be in complete agreement with that assessment?  Or would there be a certain amount of . . . disparity?

You could say that those recruiters who chose other answers were 100% honest, since those answers ranged from “I don’t have the time” to “Following up is one of my weaknesses” to “I’m not afraid of Drea.”

Although that last answer is not only 100% honest, but also 100% dangerous.


How often do Top Echelon Network recruiters call their Trading Partners back?  While that might be difficult to determine with 100% accuracy, this much is certain:

Those Top Echelon recruiters who DO call their Trading Partners back are the ones most likely to enjoy long-term success as Preferred Members of the Network.

There’s no guesswork involved with that statement.  Call your Trading Partners back, communicate, and make split placements.

Repeat as necessary.
