This is the best incentive measure for all your downline generations. I will strongly recommend you to set your own rules and get your own competition on go. Also I am using this method for stimulation and its giving wonderful results. And I am 4 months in the business and Silver Team Leader.

The benefits for Organizing a Team contest for both You and Your Down line are HUGE.

First of all, to offer a contest for your downline, you need to be able to follow through on your promise.

Contests can be for 1st level PSAs, CSAs and/or go down many levels.

There are many benefits for contests, mainly motivating your entire downline to do their very best:

1. Your affiliates will see how well they are doing and want to continue. (PSA or CSA)

2. They will see their own downline do better if the contest goes down several levels. This will

Organizing a competition, can motivate you affiliates, to really get interested.
I run different competitions, for all generations including CSA's, and anyone that meets the requirements can win TCredits; Gift Vouchers and PSA's from 1 up to 50 PSA's

Competitions can be for fast Track; reaching 1500 VP; starting to recruit, and so much more, it really is up to you, how you organize you competitions, and to whom

I do advise however, from my own experience, that sending PSA's

Top 5 reasons to have TEAM CONTEST

1. Motivation. Contest provide an extra reason to double up efforts and achieve success now instead of later.

2. Loyalty. Having contest builds a strong relationship between you and your team. They will know that their success matters to you.

3. Duplication. By setting the assigned task to be the focus of the competition you can get the whole team working on solutions to a common problem or for achieving a common goal.
