It's Far Too Easy To Join
John T. Wilson actually makes a big effort to stop people joining his downline.  Yes - to stop them!  He sets up a few barriers for them to climb over.  Crazy or what?  Or is he on to something? 

The Postcode Database
Can't read someone's address?  Not sure you've got the postcode right?  Paul Nicholson shows you how to check them using the Royal Mail Postcode Database.

Share Your Experience
We're looking for experienced networkers to write feature articles.  Why not share what you've learned with the rest of us?  Tell us what worked for you - and what to avoid.  If you can make sense for 1000 words we'll be happy to put your article on the front page like this.  In return you can place a free advert at the foot of your article.  How about that for a good deal?  If you're interested check out Authors Wanted or email us at editor@downline.co.uk.
