Is Your Social Media Presence Helping You?

View this video about Mateo Garcia and beNICEmedia. This happened because we got to know each other and THAT happened because of a phone call. Maybe it would be good for you to talk on the phone a bit more!

Mateo Garcia Shares His Experience On tsu So Far.

Mateo Garcia is my child on tsu. When you invite someone to tsu and they enroll using your code, tsu refers to them as your child. Just to be clear, Mateo and I are not related (that I know of).

We originally met because of Twitter and then connected on Facebook and he told me he would join tsu and give it a try. When he enrolled a few days later I realized that he is a man of his word.

Ask yourself how many people you know that actually do what they say they are going to do. I was immediately impressed with him and then he started telling me about tools that I can use to make my online experience more profitable.

Today’s post is not about those tools. Today’s post is about what has been happening for Mateo since I invited him to tsu and he accepted the invitation.

Here’s Mateo:


I have been on tsu for just over 30 days and it’s been a great experience. I have been able to make new connections and friends along with having some personal reward and satisfaction of more people seeing and actually caring about my posts.

On Facebook and Twitter you can sometimes just get lost in the shuffle, and with so many changes on who and when people see your posts it’s hard to stay in front of as many people on these platforms.

Tsu has personally helped me earn at least $300 in additional income from a crowdfunding campaign I have been hired to help promote.

Along with this income, I have received 3 direct leads that I have been in communication with for new business. I sometimes receive inquiries like these from my activities on Facebook and Twitter, but few and far between.

Additionally I have earned a little over $7.00 of royalty income from tsu for basically posting the same content, pictures and quotes I normally post on Facebook and Twitter. I am slowly increasing my networking time on tsu as opposed to other platforms along with inviting people with my code.

I am still on Facebook and Twitter, but hopefully more people will jump on the #tsunami.

Mateo has been working with tsu and so have I. That is the key to making tsu work for you. If you sign up and post three photos and come back five days later, don’t expect to have any royalties.

If you’re on tsu every day you will start to get somewhere. My first penny came about a week after I signed up and now I’ve made over 70 cents in one day and my total is around $15. Maybe 6 months or a year from now I’ll get $15 a day from tsu and I know that in the United States or Canada that is not a living, but how much does Facebook pay you?

Another great lesson from Mateo Garcia (@beNICEmedia) is that you can use tsu to help you grow another business. Why not get paid by a tool that helps you grow your main business?

Most tools cost money, but tsu pays you.

I’m sure Mateo agrees with me that THAT fact can make all the difference.

Have You Done 1000 Likes Yet?

For those of you who read my blog before I got onto tsu, I apologize that tsu is all I’m writing about right now.

Then again, no I don’t apologize. If YOU are not on tsu, you are missing out. If you were on tsu you would understand why we’re putting in so much effort there right now. You can join us there with the link in the upper right of this page. If you can’t find it…Click HERE.

I’m having fun on tsu and yes, there is some work. It took me a little while before I got to 1000 likes in 24 hours and now I’ve done it three different times. Today I got to 1000 likes, 1000 comments and zero (re-)shares left. That’s the second time I’ve done all three.

The more I do it, the more fun it is and it becomes less work because you find out ways to get it done in a style that you enjoy.

For instance, you could go to @Zaibatsu (I’m his tsu child, I think) and @beNICEmedia (nice name! He’s my tsu child, for sure!) and like over 150 posts (shares) each and you’ll probably truly enjoy all the images and really love 50% of them! When you do that you will find that it doesn’t take as long as you thought and now you’ve only got 700 to go in the next 24 hours.

Next you can go to your feed and it’s not hard to knock out 50 or 60 likes every 30 minutes. So, do whatever else you’re doing in your day and come back every half hour to do some likes and a few comments. That’s less than an 8 hour day WHILE you’re doing something else OR you could just spread it out into smaller pieces throughout a 16 hour day.

Just to be clear, I’m not saying that this doesn’t take any time AND I’m not saying that you should only sit there on tsu all day either. You have to interweave it into your life so you can do the things you normally do.

For instance, I just went out the store to get some soup for our son who is sick today. Earlier today I drove my wife to work and I’ve also played with the dogs. Yesterday I got to watch the second-to-last episode of Sons of Anarchy as well as the Daily Show and Stephen Colbert and I played cards with my wife.

You have to experience DOING tsu before you can figure out how it fits into your life. You will do some things that aren’t very efficient and you’ll figure out how to get faster. And, you’ll figure out how to follow the rules.

Because I got an email from tsu I make sure that all my comments are at least two words long. I don’t want to get banned from tsu because 1) I enjoy it, 2) I’m meeting new people like a filmmaker in NY this morning and a whole lot of new friends in Japan and 3) I really think that in the LONG run there is money to be made here.

That being said, you do have some work to do and you do need to be patient.

You also have to be willing to learn.

I never used to put hashtags on stuff unless I was using Twitter. Now I’m experimenting and I’m also using @ to let people know that I’ve shared something. I’ve even started to find Beatles fans who want me to @ them when I share Beatles stuff. I never used to do that, but I’m learning and USING what I learn.

Some of you are wondering about the numbers and I do think that they are important because at the very least they measure how effectively you’re communicating with large numbers of people. In a sense, the money is a way to keep score of your tsu skill.

I’m sure there are some game players who will love this part of tsu. If you can look at it like a game it can be much more fun! I NEVER imagined liking shares 1000 times in one day before I got on tsu.

Lots of people feel the same way. One guy even made a comment asking if I’m getting any sleep! IF you don’t learn how to be more efficient (that word keeps coming up), you will likely get tired and perhaps give up on making money. There’s nothing wrong with doing tsu just for fun. I think that as long as I’m here I might as well see how I can make money with tsu as well.

You may remember that on Sunday tsu paid $0.36 into my tsu account. I wasn’t sure if maybe I had hit some sort of range and I was going to continue to see deposits in the 24-42 cent range. I’m glad to say that I was wrong. It’s important not to fixate on the financial results one day at a time, but it’s nice to see trends. Here it is:

Sunday $0.36
Monday $0.41
Tuesday $0.55
Wednesday $0.64

If I had to guess I would say that a few people (re-)shared a few of my posts on Tuesday and Wednesday and MAYBE that is the big difference.

If you feel that I’m sharing valuable information with you I would appreciate it if you went to @ACrowdFunder and (re-)shared posts that I HAVE CREATED.

You can tell if it’s mine because there will only be my name Charles Hicks-Moore at the top. When I have shared someone else’s created post it says Charles Hicks-Moore has shared a post. If you’re going to (re-)share my posts, please share the kind I mentioned in the first sentence of this paragraph.

Let me know if you’re a Beatles fan and you want me to @ you when I share Beatles stuff!

Have fun with tsu!
