Is Tsū A Scam? | Tsu Cheats, Tips & Walk Through

Updated on November 6, 2014

Feel Free To Add Me On Tsū, too!

Is Tsū A Scam?

No, Tsū is not a scam. And it's free - you don't have to pay to access views, or referrals or anything else.

It was founded by Sebastian Sobczak and has an office in New York.

Unlike other social media sites or scam sites out there, you don't have to pay for membership, sell anything or invite anyone to earn money. It's as simple as doing what you already do on sites like Facebook.


I currently have over 1,000 followers, 41 direct referrals and 355 in my referral network. So do I think it's possible to make GOOD money on Tsu? Read my answer here.

What Is Tsū?

Tsū is a new social network which is reminiscent of a mixture of Facebook and Twitter.

You earn money by posting content, whether it's a link, a picture or a status update. The more people that interact with your status update, the more money you can potentially earn.

Tsū also has an internal system allowing you to pay other people on the platform with money you earn, which will become popular as more businesses join.

What NOT To Do on Tsū

As the site is new, there are a few spammers sneaking through. Staff have already stated that they'll be deleting and banning spam and spammers. So don't:

  • Post about get rich quick schemes.
  • Ask people to mass follow you to make money.
  • Reshare anything that promises it will make you money fast.

How Do You Make Money on Tsū ?

90% of revenue is shared among users. 10% of revenue is kept by the company.

You can earn 45% of the cpm of all adverts shown on your content. That means, you earn for views. The more views, the more money. Cpm is the amount of earnings per 1,000 views.

If you refer someone, Tsu pays you a percentage out of the other 40% of revenue.

  • Your first level of referrals will earn you 1/3 of their earnings.
  • The second level will earn you 1/9 of their earnings.
  • The third level will earn you 1/27 of their earnings.
  • And so on, to infinity.

Payments are made approximately 48 hours after the day on which you earn.

How Do You Get Paid on Tsū?

Currently Tsū pays by cheque, but as it's a very new platform, staff are already working towards integrating Paypal payments.

You can cash out once you reach $100. However even if you have less than $100, you can still pay other members on the site and paying bills with Tsū $$ will be integrated soon!

Tips, Tricks & Cheats For Money Making on Tsu

Just like any social network, you can't just post and wait for thousands of followers and interactions. Here are some quick tricks to start getting views and interactions on Tsū:

  1. Quality over Quantity. Tsū allows up to 24 updates and 8 shares in a 24 hour period. So make them count!
  2. Create, don't share. Shares earn you less money than posting your own original content.
  3. Use Hashtags. Hashtags are big on Tsū. Make sure you use ones which will be getting views, such as #Tsu and #Funny and #Flowers. Trust me, no one will be looking for #SusannahBirch or #HowIMadeMyBreakfast.
  4. Interact. Either invite your friends, or use #Hashtags in searches to follow or friend other people who have the same interests. The more people you connect with, the more people will connect with you.
  5. Post Publicly. You have either the option of posting publicly or just to your friends. Limiting it to your friends only, means you won't get as many views or interactions (unless you have a lot of friends!) If you want something to get seen, make it public!

      I tried it for a few weeks but realized I did not have the time to work it like I needed to for profit. You summed it up well, thanks!

      Hi, just read it cause I want to see your writing and expertize.

      Well done, gave you thumbs up, and I'm going to Tweet it for you as well.

      It's a colorful site with many "interesting" posts. I have been a member for a few months but did not have much time to explore the program and promote it. The response by admin to a member addressing an issue in indeed an impetus to go on with the site. :)

      I tried it and spent quite a bit of time there interacting for quite a few months and have amassed $2.38. (I just checked!) At that rate I will be able to cash out perhaps decades from now. If one does not care about earning money and would rather donate it and just have fun, the site is OK. After the Bubblews experience, I am a bit skeptical.

      I joined three months ago after reading this hub, and I have earned two cents so far. It could be ok if you want to devote hours to getting followers and posting but I don't have the time.

      I am on it but have not made much of an effort to make money there. I have been there for about 8 months now and only have around $3.00 there. You have to have booohoooodles of likes, just like another site that I used to belong too.

      Tsu will ban you for no reason and steal your profits while using your likeness without permission:

      It's a scam, no security, the rate is so low it will take 30 years to get to minimum pay out, no link to your acct. so unless your really dumb. You must be part of this scam.

      Think of it like Facebook, but with facets of Bubblews and Twitter thrown in.

      Unlike Bubblews, it's not just based around writing - you can do status updates, likes, shares, comments, all in a similar format to Facebook and with a good integration of hashtags like Twitter. And unlike Leafit, it's all free and you can earn money.

      Never heard of this, but as you say it is only new. Sounds like a great concept though. I'll have to check it out.
