Some social media sites are household names, meaning everyone from your teen to your business associate to your grandmother has at least heard of it, if not personally used it. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn are among those on the tip of everyone’s tongue, but many say there’s still room for more. Tsu may just be that more.
What Is Tsu?
Tsu markets itself as a “community for authentic engagement.” It’s free to use and provides another way to interact with a network of people online, meet new people, and get your name, and your business out there. That doesn’t, however, mean that it is exactly the same as the social media platforms you’re used to. This one is a little different. It promises to pay you money for using it. Now, you have to admit,that’s a switch.
How Does It Work?
Essentially, TSU is supposed to work much like any other network. You post content in the form of text, images, videos, and links, and interact with others. The difference is that TSU says it will pass on some of the revenues earned from third-party ads, sponsorships, and the like. According to TSU, it will keep just 10 percent of those revenues and pass along half of what’s left to you, the user who posted content on the social media platform. The other half after TSU’s revenue is then to be spread among your own network on the site. Sounds like a sweet deal, doesn’t it?
What’s the Big Idea?
The idea here is that your content has value, which is a message that stands out when, on some social media platforms, you might have to pay just to ensure that a significant number of the right people sees your post. But TSU asserts that all of your content is valuable and you deserve to be paid for it. It even goes on to say that your network is valuable too. Like an MLM opportunity, you can earn revenue based on the content of the people you invited.The people who invited you stand to earn in the same way.
Is It Too Good to Be True?
As with anything new, it’s hard to gauge at first. Who knows how well it will catch on or how much money users will actually earn? You have to admit, though, that it’s an intriguing concept.
