I Achieved 1000 Likes On Tsu In 24 Hours. Now What!?

This morning I woke up around 9:15 after going to see Fleetwood Mac at the Forum in Los Angeles last night with a good friend I’ve known since high school. The first thing I want you to notice is that I went out and had fun. Both of us had never seen Fleetwood Mac before and it would be the best concert either of us has seen all year except that we saw Paul McCartney with my wife and his daughter at Petco Park in September. THAT was the greatest concert we have ever been to in our entire lives. I know I’ve been going to concerts since I was at least 18 and maybe younger. So Paul McCartney was the greatest show in over 33 years. I shared that because I believe that it’s important to both work AND play.

When I woke up and checked on my Tsu account this morning I found that the likes, comments and views were the worst they’ve been in a while. Last night my account only added 24 cents so I knew that would mean I would have two low days in a row if I didn’t do something.

That’s when I decided to see if I could get to 1000 likes today. What I forgot at the beginning is that Tsu has a rolling 24 hour period. So at 3:59 pm California time today I had counted to 890 likes and Tsu said I could not like anymore because I had liked 1000 times in the last 24 hour period. I had forgotten that I was liking (and commenting and sharing) on Tsu yesterday from around 4 pm until I left at nearly 5:30 to drive to my friend’s house and go to the concert.

Two things about this. One, I want to remind you that Tsu starts their day at 4 pm my time (or close to that) which is Midnight Greenwich Mean Time, a world-wide standard. So I was thinking in terms of Tsu’s close of business for today. Two, I had coincidentally started a period of using Tsu at almost exactly 4 pm yesterday, which is why I hit 1000 likes at 3:59 pm. But that was just a coincidence. Your rolling 24 hour period is continually moving. I just found out a little while ago that I could like a little. We’ll see when Tsu stops me when I get done with this post. I assume they must give us a little extra leeway, because last night at this time we were sitting in our seats waiting for Fleetwood Mac to come on stage.

What did the 1000 likes do for my account?

Remember that my numbers were looking really bad before 9:30 this morning. By the time Tsu closed the day at 4 pm I had the most views I’ve ever had in one day – 2652! I also had the 4th highest like total – 178 – with 210 being my all-time high 2 days ago. My comments were tied for the 4th highest total I’ve had at 59. That all-time high was 5 days ago at 91.

In about 150 minutes I’ll know the financial result, but I want to mention that Tsu is NOT all about money. I keep meeting great people and I am learning to especially like the people who re-share my posts.

Tonight a guy who has thousands of friends and followers told me that he believes shares are most important financially. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do think shares are important. My guess is that they do contribute SOMETHING to our ultimate paycheck, but they are also an indication that people TRULY LIKE our posts enough to share them with their friends or with everyone.

I know that I would definitely appreciate it if anyone reading this post were to go to my Tsu page at https://www.tsu.co/ACrowdFunder and find one or two of MY posts (not necessarily something that I have re-shared from someone else) and re-share them on your Tsu page. There is likely SOMETHING that I have posted that you like, so take a look around. If you then came back to this blog and commented that you shared, well, that would be awesome. If you feel that I have provided you with some value on this blog I would really appreciate you giving me that little bit of value in return.

Let me leave you with this. IF sharing really is important (and I think it may be) and you want people to share your stuff, that means you need to create your own content. I created a limerick and I’m going to make a better presentation for it. (You can find it if you look back a couple of days.) Can you take pictures or your dog or sunsets or flowers? Are you funny? Are you good at using words to motivate? Use your creativity and come up with something. The more you practice, the easier it will become and soon you’ll be able to create a dozen or more things a day that other people can re-share.

Success Takes More! Get There!

  1. This was a pretty good review. It appears as though ones likes and comments generate views. I have been hearing folks that “shares” are what actually generates ad revenue on tsu. I am learning more each day. One person told me to delete any posts that did not have any shares. However, when you delete a post you also lose those likes and comments associated with that post from your over-all total number of views, likes and comments. So now I have to rebuild them. I noticed when I post and share more, my income increases. Well, I’m a newbie at social media. Tsu is the first one to come along that I actually liked enough to fully engage. I’ve been hearing a lot that likes and comments do not generate revenue. That it is the “shares.” There are plenty of posts circulating on tsu explaining the network and payment cycle. So, I hope to see you on tsu. Keep having fun. That’s what attracted me to tsu.
