Why Aren’t You On Tsu?

Before I begin I just want to say to my tsufamily, “Take today’s post off because it’s for people who are NOT on tsu yet! Take a walk. It’s good for you!”

Let’s get to it.

Do you want:

To leverage social media to help your business, project or enterprise?

Have fun in a more positive atmosphere?

Post stuff that actually gets liked and even commented upon and SHARED!

Have a Facebook-like experience that’s more like in the beginning when it wasn’t cluttered by so much stuff?

Use hashtags like on Twitter, but have them lead to a page that’s full of beautiful images instead of overwhelmed by text?

These are all good reasons to join tsu.

Here’s a great one:

When you post on tsu, YOU OWN what you post. Check the other sites and read the small print. When you post on Facebook or Twitter, that website owns your content. (Even after you die, which could be weird for your friends and family later on.)

Here’s another great reason:

tsu shares revenues with you, the user.

I doubt that anyone will get rich on tsu, even if they use it 18 hours a day.

But, a lot of people will get $100 or $200 in a year or two. Some will even get $500 or $1000 because they have invited so many active people onto tsu.

You can join me on tsu now!

I expect my first $100 check will come between August and November. Like I said, it’s not a lot, but it’s not ZERO, either. (I will keep you posted on my check, too. Right now my tsu account has $21.70 in it.)

How much does Facebook pay you to use it? Twitter? Instagram? Pinterest? Vine? Do I need to go on?

I am sharing the financial information in order to be thorough, but the OTHER reasons listed above are why you want to join tsu. Look at the check you earn a year from now or more as a nice little bonus.

Also, if you REALLY, REALLY don’t care about the money you can give it away to charity. I know that Charity Water is one of the nonprofits that tsu supports, so if you accumulate $2.00 and you simply want to donate it, tsu is also a payment platform. Just click buttons to send the $2.00 that tsu paid you to Charity Water or whichever other nonprofit tsu supports. (I’m even looking into whether I can have a local nonprofit in the mix, so to speak. That way I can get members to join and they can donate their earnings if they choose.)

What is the best reason to join tsu?

In MY opinion, if you want to have a more enjoyable experience online and you’re ok if tsu sends you a check in a year or or so and you like to interact with people online, then you should definitely join!

tsu requires you to follow someone’s invitation to join, so…

Enjoy the internet again!

Keep Tsu In Perspective

This week’s report has some good news and my concern is that too many readers will focus on things they perceive as negative. I’ll start with the dollar figure in my account versus last week. If you view the post from November 24th, you’ll see that I had $0.09 the previous week and that increased to $1.50 by last Monday’s post.

If we look at results from a daily perspective we may find them discouraging. One factor that we MUST keep in mind is that the pennies and dollars that end up in our account come from tsu’s revenue. It’s not magic and it’s not altruism.

We bring value to tsu by our participation and tsu shares 90% with us. That’s generous AND it’s still not Facebook size yet. If tsu has a down day in terms of money that they bring in, then that will affect the SIZE of the pie that tsu shares with us.

My piece of the pie this week is good. It grew from $1.41 last week to $2.42 in the week ending last night. Those individual days look like this – Monday to Sunday: $0.31 – $0.40 – $0.35 – $0.42 – $0.24 – $0.34 – $0.36.

If you saw my posts on my tsu profile or CoachZero.com it’s not hard to guess which amount above represents the day that my buddy and I went up to L.A. to see Fleetwood Mac in concert. (Hint: I didn’t make as much money and that day’s amount REALLY stands out!)

If you expect each day to bring a little bit more money than the day before you’re going to be disappointed. If you believe that you can do the work of making changes to your behavior, then you will likely find that you can increase those amounts week by week or month by month.

THAT second sentence is the stumbling block for many people. “How long do I have to stick with this thing until I get the benefit that I want?” Whether they say that exactly is not important. That’s kind of what many people are thinking.

IF you look at this as a job, you’ll likely be really disappointed.

If you look at it more like a business where you can have some fun and you might get some benefits (value) from places that you didn’t expect, then I believe you’ll be rewarded. BUT, that takes work and that means SMART work or WORKING SMART.

Speaking of unexpected benefits, I have seen my blog traffic increase as a result of posting about tsu AND because of links I’ve shared on tsu. Will I be at 300 or 500 or 1000 views per day in January? Maybe.

Through my experience I hope that you and I will learn how to make the most of this. So don’t be discouraged because neither day this past weekend was a record for me. On a percentage basis, the increase from $0.24 to $0.34 from Friday to Saturday is quite significant. That’s an increase of over 41% and shows that effort matters. I worked hard on those likes on Saturday and hit 1000 by 3:59 pm. Later that day I hit 1000 comments (although that fell on Sunday because of WHEN the day starts – 4 pm my time.)

What did I learn this week?

When you share that you hit 1000 likes in a post on tsu, THAT gets people’s attention in a positive way. Click here to see that post. If you are not on tsu already, you may need to register through my link to read the post. Click HERE to register using my link.

Because I’m running short of time before my meeting this morning I’m going to need to continue sharing about what I learned in a future post. (Probably later today or tomorrow.)

Here are the numbers (except the financial part which I shared in the beginning of this post):

Another way of looking at the numbers directly above is that they represent what actually happened THIS week. I believe that’s encouraging as well because those numbers led to the $2.42 increase during the week. I’ll have to look closer, but my sense is that this means I actually got paid a little bit more for the results I got. My assumption is that what really drives the dollars are likes and comments (and shares). Let’s not forget something that I haven’t mentioned at all. What happens when you or I or anyone of our children advertise OR our children’s children advertise. My guess is THAT is where the big dollars are at.

Whew! I’ll likely be back in less than 24 hours.

Happy Thanksgiving! (A Little Work Before Food)

My post is not about how we should always work when we can. There’s nothing wrong with taking some time off.

But, it doesn’t hurt to squeeze in a little work if you enjoy it or just to sneak in a little project productivity.

So I’m going to say a little about how you can be more productive on Tsu in the long run by doing more than you are currently. By doing this you will spread goodwill and people will feel better about you on Tsu. Another way to put it is that they will like your brand more.

As long as I’m talking about liking, let me be specific. When I just used the word “like” above I wasn’t talking about clicking a “like” button on Tsu or some other site. (By the way, if you need to join Tsu, you can use my brother-in-law’s link – https://www.tsu.co/TheSilverSurfer.) What I am getting at is how well-liked you are or how much people enjoy you or your personal brand.

When you only “run” through the site “liking” everything in sight you are providing some small value. That’s true. As I have mentioned before, commenting is not only providing more value than liking, it gets you noticed more. Not only does it get you noticed more, but people ENJOY you more or VALUE you more. (I’m not going to go into different types of value here today.)

If your comment is thoughtful and not very long, people appreciate that. Hopefully that is self-evident. If you comment back and forth with someone in a relevant way, people appreciate that as well.

So here’s one way that you can immediately show that you’re different or better or have more value or that interacting with you will be more enjoyable.

Ready?

When YOU request to be someone’s friend and they approve, you are now friends. RIGHT NOW is the time for you to comment on at least 7 or 8 of their posts on their URL. If you’re not there when that person approves you to be their friend, do it anyway, but comment even more. Maybe 10 or 12 times.

This will make a big difference.

BUT, only if the comments are relevant and somewhat unique or at least playful.

Don’t simply comment “like” or “yo” or “nice” all the time.

THINK and/or FEEL about what you put down.

This might take a little practice, but you will get better AND faster with practice.

Do I have examples? Yes, because I do this a lot.

Instead of just saying cute I might say cutesweet AND I really have taken a few seconds to get an impression so that I am posting a comment that’s almost always positive and that’s ACTUALLY TRUE FOR ME.

You may need to get in touch with your emotions in order to do this well, but it will pay off AND, people will appreciate it and enjoy you/your brand even more.

Another example is when I notice something we have in common, such as we are both born in the same year and I’ll comment on that.

Sometimes I’ll write a complete sentence IF I TRULY MEAN IT. I might say something like, “I’m so glad you posted this because I needed to hear it today.”

Starting to get the picture?

Will you provide me some value for the value I’ve provided in this post? I would appreciate it!

Go to https://www.tsu.co/ACrowdFunder and practice what you’ve learned!

If you would like to create even more value then please add something like this to your comment (on my wall only) “I like what I learned at your blog CoachZero.com.” (This is ONLY OK because I’m asking you to do it. Only do it on my wall and do NOT add your own link. I’ll explain more in further posts.)

Please comment if you have sincere questions or positive stuff to share! [ And I don’t mean spam! 🙂 🙂 ]

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
