How to Earn from Tsu?

Updated on December 25, 2014
Source

What is tsū?

Date Launched: Tuesday - October 21, 2014

Founder: Sebastian Sobczak

Tsu have $7 million investment led by Sancus Capital Prive and New-York based.

Tsū have a concept just like Bubblews that promises to pay it's members for every content created. Bubblews focuses on blogs while tsū focuses on sharing and interactions just like Facebook.

This benefits the site’s most popular users like celebrities and popular figures. During the site’s beta test, rapper 50 Cent and NBA star Carmelo Anthony tried Tsu platform.

Tsu is on HTTPS which means it's a secured site and if it's on HTTPS google will prioritize it which is good for SEO.

Tsu Alexa Rankings

Worldwide: from 14,655 to 11,201

Dec. 25, 2014 - it increased to 2,850

U.S.A. :from 3,026 to 2,535

Dec. 25, 2014 - it increased to 2,416

How to join tsū?

I read an article about this from a Blogger shared on my Facebook feed. I did not pay too much attention to it until I got an e-mail from my friend who also happens to be a Bubblews member. He asked me if I would like to join another earning site. I was told that in order for me to become a member of the site - I need to be invited by it's existing member just like him.

I was given the link and after accepting the invitation, I was asked to enter my information just like when I'm signing up with Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and other websites. I became the child of the member who invited me.

In order for you to earn more - you need to grow your so-called family tree by inviting your friends from other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter just like a multi-level-marketing.

I thought that the website is a scam but based on my own experience, it's not. This is a blogger's point of view.

"It's a sharing site where you could share your photos, video links, and web links."

Sharing the links from my website to tsū allowed my website to get more unique visitors which is good. I also have a Facebook Page and own a Facebook account where I could share my web links but few people are able to see it since there is a limitation except if I will pay for Facebook Ads to boost my post.

I read some reviews about this website - some are good and some are bad. Some people felt that it's like Yuwie which is a social networking site that pays users for their interactions but was shutdown for the reason that it's not profitable. Some people are thinking that this maybe another marketing scam.

When I checked my Twitter account and searched for #tsu - most publishers already created their tsu account which allowed them to advertise their published books and novels.

Tsu as social media

Majority of the countries using Tsu: U.S.A., Philippines, India, Vietnam, Japan, Hungary and Spain. Sometimes I'm using Google translate to translate some of the messages I got from some members.

Mobile Application for Tsū

*Tsū App is also available for iPhones, Android Mobile Phones and Tablets.

Once installed and your Tsu account is signed in, you will get notification allerts on your device about the people who followed you, liked your post, and made comments on your post.

Tsu's Interface

I read an article online about Tsu and the author indicated that Tsu is using the same platform like Facebook but the author does not want to get invitations from this website for he is a friend of Mark Zuckerberg (founder of Facebook) and he does not want to join a multi-level-marketing scheme. He is upset because most people are saying they are not being paid by Facebook for their social interactions. Although he got lots of Tsu invitations on his blog's comment section.

Tsu's interface is like Facebook but the color is green.

Some people say green is the color of the money. It may also signify growth since Tsu believes that the success of the site depends on the Family Tree which consists of the parent (which is the original member), child (the recruited member) and grandchild which is the member being recruited by the child.

There is also a notification area that allows you to check who followed you and made comments on your post. It allows you to interact faster with the other members.

This also gives enough traffic for the site to get more advertisers.

Tsu Limitations

Just like other earning websites, Tsu also have their rules and limitations.

Among their limitations are the following:

  • You are allowed to create 24 posts per day
  • 8 re-shares per day
  • like other posts 1,000 times per day
  • send 50 friend requests per day
  • you can follow up to 1000 members
  • you can add up to 5000 friends
  • use @MENTION 10 times per post
  • use #HASHTAG 10 times per post

Similarities Between Facebook and tsū:

With Facebook and tsū you could share your photos and posts with friends and family members.

With Facebook there is a News Feed that allows you to see the posts of your friends and close friends while tsū have a Feed area where you could see the posts of your friends and tsū members that you follow.

You could like a post, make a comment and share it.


Difference Between Facebook and Tsu:

With Facebook you can:

  • add up to 5,000 friends
  • upload videos
  • block Facebook members
  • delete your Facebook account and then restore it
  • share and create posts anytime

Tsu is the opposite.

There is a limit in sharing the posts of others in tsū to prevent spamming.
Deleted tsū account cannot be restored and your earnings will go to tsū community.

Facebook and Tsū

There are speculations that Tsū will overpower Facebook since there is no earning offered by Facebook.

Based on Alexa Rankings of Facebook

#2 Worldwide

#2 United States of America

I've been a Facebook member since Year 2009. I love Facebook because that is where I connect with my friends and relatives here and abroad. I also love the Facebook Page because it's free and it's good for our local business.

I saw how Facebook overpowered Friendster because of their Farmville game and now here is Tsu offering earnings for it's members. Facebook had been popular for a long time and I think it will not be overpowered by Tsu.

I like Tsū because it's a good place to share my web links from my blogs and website. Let's see how long it will last, if it will overpower popular social media sites such as Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twitter. Let's see how much would be the earnings Tsu members would get from them.

My Experience with Tsu

As of now, my bank is at $.08 because I'm not that active. I've been busy with our local business, writing here on Hubpages, Bubblews and Writedge which is also another earning site. I also create blogs on my own website.

Most of the things I saw there are pictures about Tsu, pictures of beautiful places, blogs, and Youtube Video Links.

You need to be creative in order for your content to be shared. If it's unique, you'll earnings will increase as well as those members under your Family Tree.

I was able to invite one there but I think she wants to earn more from writing articles.

I was told by some people that they are already earning good amount there.

Tsu Member Best Practices

  • Follow 1,000
  • Tsu members
  • Be Active
  • Interact and Post Good Content
  • Do not spam
  • *This is how you will start earning.

My Tsū Conclusions and Recommendations

Conclusions:

  • It's not an easy to get rich scheme.
  • It's a social networking media site.
  • It allows you to get more traffic in your own website or blog.
  • It's easy to get followers since everyone wants to earn.
  • If you are good in Marketing, you might earn there.
  • It's good to meet different people - some are from United States of America, Spain, Philippines, and other countries.

Recommendations:

  • Be creative and create good content to earn.
  • Upload good images (captured images from Digital Camera or DLSR).
  • Edit photos by using photo-editing software like Adobe Photoshop and upload it.
  • You cannot earn from likes on your posts but you can earn when it was shared.
  • Use @ symbol and the username to interact with each member within tcommunity.
  • Use # (hashtags) and keyword (for example #tsu) and include it on your post so that it can be easily searched to gain more followers and increase your earnings.
  • Create your own website, put some content on it, apply for Google Adsense and share your web links to t to monetize it. There are lots of ways to earn from your own website which allows you to have the full control over your own content.

Some tips

Sharing your Tsu posts on Facebook and Twitter increases your earnings.

      You are correct @KenDeanAgudo. Facebook and Tsu are too different. I use Facebook to connect with my families and friends. Tsu is just a new social network but I could say that their rank is increasing.

      I've had a look at this site. The main issues I see are the need to be invited, and the impossibility of seeing content without being a member. This means all traffic has to be internal (no search engine traffic), and nothing can be shared properly on twitter, fb, g+, because only members can view it. So that cuts out most sources of revenue. Internal traffic is all they have, which is why they're definitely not going to be paying much. This also makes it a bit of a pyramid scheme because, to reach payout, you need hundreds of `children'... or, in other words, people lower down on the pyramid than you.

      Overall, it would be better than facebook if it ever got popular, because at least you'd be earning something from it. Zuckerberg certainly isn't going to give FB users any share of the money he makes from their content.

      I think someone can use Tsu to promote their hubs and grow a following like Tumblr. If they pay great if they don't one will still benefit from followers and others reading their posts, if their HubPages Hub’s posts are read.

      This is a site which I have checked after reading your Hub and watching the video. I looked up Tsu reviews and Tsu itself. In the video I caught someone saying words similar to 'paying online in Tsu'. After reading (between the lines) in a couple of reviews and at the Tsu site, I get the feeling that in the future - after there are enough members - they will change their policy and try to get money from them.

      Therefore, I do not recommend it for a good site to join.

      Thank you @CatherineGiordano. I'm sharing my HubPages posts on Tsu which allows me to get unique viewers while earning at the same time. I also noticed the increase of users from that website from different parts of the world.

      This sounds very interesting. Right now, I don't want to take on anything new. I want to focus on HubPages where I am doing well and not scatter my efforts.

      You need to follow 1000 members and you also need to get many followers. Upload good images like beautiful sceneries. It would capture the attention of others. You also need to be active.

      Hi @PinoyMom,

      I recently joined Tsu from a RedGage friend. I think it looks promising and I'll need to see how it goes. When a site offers sharing along with an opportunity to post your blog links, that's always a good thing for SEO.

      Thanks for the share!
