Growing In Social Media

This morning’s post is mostly about progress thru my newest social media site: Tsu.co/ACrowdFunder.

Just because I’m experiencing challenges with uploading a picture of my Tsu stats doesn’t mean I’m not going to share them. Here they are right now:

I Have 6 “Children”
Those 6 Have Zero “Children”

Yesterday (and into this morning) was the second time Tsu told me that I had reached my limit on posting.

I should also mention here that I believe that Twitter has become an underutilized tool. Twitter still provides a lot of value if you pay attention and communicate. Follow me at Twitter.com/ACrowdFunder.

One of the challenges with numbers is understanding “How Am I Doing?”

When the numbers are too small it’s hard to draw any conclusions about how likely things you are measuring will continue to behave in the same way.

That’s what we want. A way to duplicate something that works. If I have 6 children this week will I have another 6 children (or more) next week?

Over the next several weeks and months (and years) you will be able to see how my methods are working and how I improve over that time. By improve I mean more growth in the numbers as well as strengthening the relationships that occur when you have some communication.

Right now I’ll tell you that one of my Tsu children is my wife – @MarianneEarlywine. Another is someone I met on Twitter – @ismellzombies – just over two weeks ago and his crowdfunding campaign is almost exactly on target. He has 15 days and a couple hours to reach his goal. View his campaign by visiting Kickstarter.com and searching Remain Calm. His project is the game involving zombies!

Two of my Tsu children are Facebook friends. Charlotte is someone who I have talked with and even networked with on the phone more than once – @Cjtersigni. Another Facebook friend is from Sweden – @Askmo. Both of these individuals have been connected to me on Facebook for years. I’m at Facebook.com/BigManWalking.

Last but not least are two more from Twitter. Kelly – @kkdub – is someone who I asked back in the spring if she would be interested in networking and she knows about social media. She introduced me to Bufferapp.com, which lets you schedule tweets. She and I also talked on the phone several months ago. Last of the last and certainly not least of the least is a teacher I met on Twitter just last night. She – @Tavie76 – is using a different crowdfunding platform and you can visit DonorsChoose.org/think.pink to see what she’s doing.

Please remember that these are the names that each of these people have chosen to use on Tsu. They may have a different – @YourCR8TVNameHere – name on Twitter.
