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!

Click the link in the upper right that says Join Me On tsu!

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!

Time To Get Started!

How many of you are putting off starting something in 2015? The time to get started is now!

Just before Christmas I got sick and I was sick through Christmas and then still not feeling 100% through the first couple days of 2015. Then our puppy started robbing me of sleep again and so with other things I absolutely HAD to do I just kept putting off writing. Now I’m back.

Getting started starts with a decision. It’s still dark out as I write this in the early morning. I’m tired as I’m still not getting enough sleep. Yet I CHOSE to get back to blogging.

Are there things you’re putting off? CHOOSE to get started.

If you’re on tsu, are you posting 15 or 20 times a day? If you’re wondering how you do that, take a look at my tsu profile page and scroll down through everything I’ve shared. I might have missed posting 1 day since mid-November. That means that 98% of the time OR MORE I am posting every day. I usually post between 15 and 25 posts a day. Sometimes more or less. All you have to do to get ideas is check out what I’m posting.

Click HERE to visit my tsu profile page. By the way, if you’re not on tsu, you can use the same link to join us.

One thing that jumps out at me immediately is that my account generated $4.05 this week versus $4.33 last week. Not every week will there be an increase.

There are different reasons that might account for this.

1) Maybe I didn’t comment as much as I did the week before. When we comment, more people see us and that could mean that fewer people checked out my page and fewer followed me. Followers is a difficult number to judge because I will definitely be losing some (while gaining others) as people begin to realize that they don’t have to follow when they are already friends on tsu. All that does is limit the number of people you can follow in the long run because we can only follow 1000 people, so don’t follow if you friend that person! (Also, I was sick this weekend, so I definitely shared less on Saturday.)

2) Perhaps people on tsu simply didn’t click as much this week when they saw an ad. I couldn’t know that unless I saw all the data for tsu and could make a comparison with MY friends and followers.

3) Does tsu’s price for advertising change from week to week with supply and demand? I don’t know the answer to that.

4) Do people naturally interact less when they have been friends on tsu for a couple weeks?

5) Do people interact less because they have more friends and can’t interact with each one as often? This would seem to be a really great argument for not simply friending people who have thousands of friends already. If you have a liberal friending policy as I have had up to this point, keep in mind that someone with 50 friends or less will have fewer profiles in their feed so they are incredibly likely to view your content more often. (Unless tsu somehow adjusts for that, but I don’t think that would be in tsu’s best interest.)

6) Are there just natural fluctuations and the REAL solution is to bring more children to tsu?

I believe that inviting more people to tsu is really the solution. Mateo Garcia of @beNICEmedia definitely contributes to my bottom line. He is the most active of my tsu children and he creates great content! You still have time to friend him!

If you are reading this and you are not yet on tsu, here is my tsu.co/ACrowdFunder link. If somehow WordPress can’t handle that link you can go to tsu.co and give them ACrowdFunder when tsu asks for a code or extension or who invited you!

Gotta go! See you tomorrow and see you on tsu! Come and say hello! 🙂

Are You Ready To Grow?

Many people SAY that they are ready to grow, but what happens when they are asked to do something different?

Doing something different is unavoidable if you are going to grow personally.
Saying you’ll do something and actually doing it are two different things.

If you answered YES to the question in the title of this post, then…let’s take action!

If you want to be part of a group that’s growing faster, then give me your email in the comment section of this post.

If you can’t figure out how to do that you need to contact me by message or comment on tsu and you can message me your email.

I want 20 people.

First, I want five people. Then five more again and again until I have 20 people.

Will you be one of those people in this group who learns more closely from me?

Would you like your tsu account to be more successful?

Would you like 5000 followers on tsu? (I will be there before Christmas barring a power outage or some structural change with tsu or the internet!)

Would you like to use your tsu account to help another business or venture?

I can’t help everyone directly because I only have so much time.

Let’s start with the first five people. Are you one of them?

Make a comment on this CoachZero blog post like this:

Hi Charlie!

I want to be part of this group that’s growing faster and creating more success with my tsu account and in other areas.

I am ready to work hard and learn to do things that will become habits.

Here is my email – JosephineBaker@imready.com

I promise to respond to the contents of your email within 8 hours of receiving it.

Charlie, thank you for the opportunity!

What are you waiting for? Contact me now! Have an excellent day!

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!

Help Create A Nice Christmas Surprise For Someone!

Today a guy on tsu requested friendship and I noticed something on his profile. He says he wants FRIENDS all over the world.

WHAT IF WE MAKE IT COME TRUE?

How fast can he get to 5000 friends? Are you willing to help?

[Don’t worry. No one’s asking for money or sheep or gold or anything.]

I posted a song on tsu from ELO and that song is…ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Here’s the tsu link: tsu.co/ACrowdFunder/13485032

There’s video of flash mobs from all over the world AND his tsu NAME!

If you’re willing to help, here’s how we do it:

Send this post to friends and ask them to help. If they are not on tsu, this will be an awesome time to ask or urge them to join you!

Remind them beforehand (when you include YOUR tsu link) that they want to enroll using YOUR link even if they see other links somewhere.

If you’re wondering what to say, I can help you.

[No matter what you say – tell the truth. None of this “We’re both going to be millionaires soon!” stuff. (If you already are a millionaire, congratulations!)]

Hey, Susi! There’s this guy who wants friends all over the world and my tsu friends and I are helping to make it come true. Are you on tsu? Here’s my link! Join us and together we can make his Christmas more fun! If you want more details, check out Charlie’s blog, CoachZero. Here’s the link: http://wp.me/p4zD7w-6r

[If you’re reading my blog very soon after I post, the link won’t be there or down below. The specific link is CREATED WHEN I POST! I’ll be back to add it in a jiffy!]

If you’re inviting someone that you are SURE is already on tsu, that makes it even easier. Just send them this link: http://wp.me/p4zD7w-6r

Thanks for helping!

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.
