MLM attrition is high. This is a fact of life. All of those distributors, who you have signed up, have competing demands on their time. So, if they go passive, it is not your fault. If that happens, you should give it a good shot to urge them to reengage. However, after a few attempts, you should realize that you may be wasting your time.
