Time Flow Systems - Gaining Referrals


#1 by valerie » Fri Aug 03, 2012 11:36

I told someone I would explain this so here I am. I wish I could explain this in fewer words but I can't. It will be worth your read, I think. I call this 'Time Flow Systems' but you can call it whatever you want.

For most of you, you really do need to get over that pressurized brain of yours. It's the pressure that you are placing on yourself and the pressure others are placing on you. Take a deep breath, calm down, and flow into the 'Time Flow System'. Realize that you are not someone else, you are you. Remember, I said 'most people' so let me explain who most people are.

Most people are going to have some tough emotions going on in this industry. Let's look at some of those emotions:

*Why can't I get referrals?
*This does not work for me?
*This is crazy, to make a partial cent for viewing an ad!
*The survey I spent time on did not credit!
*The tasks flag me all the time!
*I'm being cheated!
*I advertise every where but I have 0 referrals!
*I only make 5 cents a day!
*This is insane!
*This is crazy!
*I'm getting now where!
*I tried
*Something is not right
*I can't do this
*I have wasted my time
*I'll stop trying to make money online
*I've spent more money than I've made
*I'm so sad
*I'm depressed
*I can't compete
*I must be dumb at this

What others are saying to most people:

*Go get referrals
*Sponsor gazillions of people
*Tell your family and friends
*I got a gazillion referrals you go out there and get a gazillion referrals too
*Hurry Up!
*Pay for that!
*Go buy that!
*Read that!
*Do this!
*Do it now!
*Get going!
*Just do it!

I suppose what upsets me the most about some of that is the ignorance involved. Psychology can be very good
in marketing to an extent. But if you don't know what you're doing, ya best better layoff your referrals and instead
focus on understanding them and the issues they are encountering. Someone along the way, got this, at least to
an extent and came out with 'IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT'. Have you ever viewed ads like that or web pages that say
IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT. Well, I have news for that guy or gal that wrote that, it IS YOUR FAULT. The fault makes
a full circle. Kind of like corn on the cob that is half eaten on one side and half eaten on the other side then gets thrown
in the trash.

Let's look also at what some people say:

*SafeLists DON'T work
*TrafficExchanges DON'T work
*Family and Friends DON'T work
*Classified ads DON'T work
*Forums DON'T work
*Advertising DON'T work for me...

Well of course they DON'T WORK. You know why they don't work? They don't work because they are not
work. They are SYSTEMS. It is people that must learn to understand systems and how to
utilize system to get the most advantage from systems. This understanding of systems, and this utilizing of systems,
and this taking advantage of systems, IS WORK BY THE USER of those systems...not the other way around.

When we understand systems, when we utilize systems to our advantage, then we are no longer ignorant of
the systems. We are in the know. We are knowledgable. We make sense of it. We no longer feel pressured.
We no longer feel sad. We save money and we make money and ..... we gain referrals.

Now let me ask you a question. No need to answer here. Just think about this question in your head. Think
about it for at least 5 minutes. I'm not going to give you the answer. Even if the answer appears readily to
you, think about it for at least 5 minutes. Ok, here is the question:

-If there is no food on the table, can you eat the food that is on the table?

Think about that question and I'll be back in a bit to discuss what Time Flow Systems are and how you gain
referrals from them.

Time Flow Systems is what I consider working smarter, not harder. You may not get a gazillion referrals in a day,
but you do get them thru the universal course of time flow.

1.*Offline Time Flow System - This is laughable easy. You think of a business card you'd like to have. What you want on it. You make sure that whatever you put on it, won't change. For example, enter a good email address you will keep forever. Go over to vistaprint and order the free 250 biz cards (ya have to pay shipping) OR make your own. You can also make and use various offline promo stuff. Many of which you can make. A good hint for you right now is because it is time for school to start you could buy a big box of folders real cheap. You know the kind that has a pocket on each side, inside. What college kid doesn't want a free folder? Inside the folder, staple your business card. STAPLE it in there. That way it will always be seen when the kid opens it up. Granted I say kid but adults go to college of course....even many older adults. Now give the folders away. Go to campuses, eateries on or near the campus, and give them out. 'Here you go, free!'. Oh believe me, they'll take it. There's also churches and shopping areas and all sorts of places you can simply leave the folders if you don't want to hand them out. Never leave a lot. Leave a few and go back again in a few days, make your rounds, leave a few more. Everybody likes something free. If you got only ONE referral every few months, from doing something like this offline, you would be building an organization on a Time Flow System. Here is another laughable easy offline hint.....LIBRARY. Go to the library and check out the MOST POPULAR read books. Take them home, leave a biz card in them. Take them back to the library. :mrgreen: I don't think you would ever run out of POPULAR BOOKS at the library. So friggin easy. Sneaky? Yes. This is a TIME FLOW SYSTEM because if you achieved one new referral every few months from someone seeing your biz card in a library book, you are building your organization over time. Keep in mind, they may be building theirs over time too which results in a larger organization for you. Keep your thinking cap on in regards to offline promoting. Always keep business cards on your person. Guess what happens if you don't do this? You absolutely won't get any referrals from it since you did not do it.

2.*WebSite/Blog Time Flow System - You really really really need to do this. You don't have to go out there and pay for hosting and all that good rot. There is free blogs and even free website hosting out there. YOU need to work that website and/or blog you set up. Make sure it is error free. Make sure there is a lot of good content worth reading. This is a time flow system because you won't get gazillions of referrals over night. But you will get referrals on a time flow system. Because as long as you keep the content updated on the site, the faster and greater it will be in the search engines and that means people will visit your site from time to time. Just think if John, from dodaddy church was bored one day, happen to come across your blog, signed up to your ClixSense, then he signed up all his dodaddy church members! You could have gazillions of people in your organization. Of course, if you don't have a website or a blog, it absolutely WON'T happen!

3.*TrafficExchange Time Flow System - Join a few, create a page, you could even set up a page on your blog with the Traffic Exchange info. Go ahead, surf some of the exchanges, get some credits, and gain some referrals to the traffic exchanges by promoting the traffic exchanges in traffic exchanges! Why heck no you won't get a gazillion referrals over night. But it is a time flow system and you will probably gain referrals from time to time. Be smart tho....look at what you get at those traffic exchanges when referring others to you get credits one level, two level, etc? Make sure you are getting those free credits when you bring others into the traffic exchange. Of course, if you don't utilize some traffic exchanges, you absolutely won't get anything from them. And if you don't utilize them the right way, you'll be spending a whole lot of time.

4.*SafeList, ListBuilders, Ad Exchanges, Time Flow System - Join as many of them as you want. The more, the merrier. Just make sure you have a great subject line and body message saved. Here again, you want to promote these, the ones that give you credits too for referring others. So this is another page on your website/blog that you could have set up. Will you get a gazillion referrals over night? No. It's a time flow system which means you will probably get a sign up from .... time to time! Guess what? IF you don't utilize them, you absolutely will not gain any referrals from them!

I think by now you get my point. You see, what many people do is this:

-TrafficExchange - surf surf surf surf, put in their ClixSense website, no takers no takers no takers. And then they holler TRAFFIC EXCHANGES DON'T WORKKKKKKKK. Errrr ya, right....they don't work. You have to use common sense and make it a worthy Time Flow System for you.

When you keep those words in your brain 'Time Flow System' when looking at resources and tools out there, your common sense will kick in and you'll ask yourself....'How Can I Use This to My Advantage on a Time Flow System to Gain Referrals?' If you will ask yourself that question, you will always find the answer.

There are simple things you can create/launch yourself. A membership site. A newsletter. An alert of best programs. No matter how small your database is, it can be a Time Flow System. Which means, you can gain referrals every now and then and keep an influx of new referrals coming in.

I get bored easily. Ya, nothing online excites me any more. And since I get bored easily, It makes me some what lazy online these days. Ho Hum! Fiddly Dee! Yawn! :kitty: But guess what? I can use Time Flow Systems which bring in new referrals from time to time. So even when some go inactive, there is always more around the corner joining.

Get time flow systems going for you. You do have to work to get them going. But once you get them going, they can be about as close to autopilot as autopilot can get.

By the way, if there is no food on the table, you can't eat it because it is not there.

I would say this is very important for many of those knocking on the doors of making money online
