What is Tsu you ask? Well if you’re wondering what the heck this thing is, chances are you were just invited by a friend and want to know more before you jump right into it.

With the likes of Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and now Tsu – it’s safe to say that social networks are here to stay. But after Facebook took MySpace off the map, who in their right mind would compete?

Introducing Tsu: The Social Networking Platform That Pays To Be A Part Of (Literally)

Founded by Sebastian Sobczak, Tsu (pronounced Sue) is the newest addition to the social networking world. Launched on October 14th and has had a solid backing from venture capital company Sancus Capital Prive who invested $7 million. 50 Cent and NBA star Carmelo Anthony even jumped onto the social networking platform and so has the public.

What Makes Tsu Different From Facebook?

To be honest, Facebook is a more established social networking platform but Tsu is different in that it wants to reward users for sharing their platform. They aim to do this by giving you a revenue share from the advertisements they display.

You can join the social media network through a friend or family members unique short code (mine is chrisalta). If you don’t know one you can click here to create your free account.

The Concept

The concept of Tsu is very simple and was in fact modeled after YouTube’s revenue share payout. The only difference is that Tsu is a social networking platform that is open to all types of media (pictures, videos, audio, etc).

So instead of getting paid on YouTube for having views, you can get paid on Tsu for having views to the media and content you share.

The more engaging your content, the more it gets shared, the more money you make. Of course if you already have a huge following of people who know, like, and trust you – it will be much easier to launch your Tsu earnings.

Analytics and Hashtags

Within the first 5 hours of creating a Tsu account, I’m really liking the analytical aspects of Tsu. I’ve managed to gain some followers, likes, and friend requests from some people I didn’t even know.

What I like even more about Tsu is the hashtag capability. Think of Instagram except on a social media platform. I know what you might be thinking, “Chris, Facebook has hashtags too!” You are correct, except they haven’t really caught on in terms of a medium to search for other content.

Most people on Facebook tend to stay within their own timeline. It looks like Tsu is definitely paving the way for social networking exploration by using hashtag searches.

Here’s How You Get Paid (Grow Your Network)

tsu-logoTsu pays out a whopping 90% to it’s users who are creating content and sharing posts. While the company itself keeps 10% of the total revenue it earns from the display advertisements.

Tsu works a lot like Network Marketing in that it’s referral based and there are levels to their payouts. Except your organization is not called a team, it’s called a “Family Tree.” So let’s say you invite someone to sign up to Tsu. Anyone that creates an account using your unique link will become your “children” and are now a part of your Family Tree.

Then when those users refer others to the platform, they will become their children and will be your “grandchildren,” thus expanding the growth of your Family Tree. Make sense?

I totally love this concept because you have total control of your network and they want to pay you to grow it! They do this using a unique algorithm that pays out the family tree of children and grandchildren based on tracking and measurement metrics.

Infinite Third Payout (Payout System)

According to their FAQ page, Tsu uses what they call the “rule of infinite thirds” to distribute the revenue generated from user content and then takes it’s 10% cut from the total share.

So let’s say that I created a really awesome video and it got a ton of shares and I made some money, but I joined under you. Well you would earn one-third of the revenue from the video that I made after Tsu has taken their cut. And whomever you joined under, would get a third of a third of that revenue, etc.

If that sounds confusing and you’d like some numbers, let’s use the $500 example.

Out of $500 earned on Tsu, $450 would be shared with the users. So let’s assume that there are three users who have shared and re-shared content, the revenue would be distributed like this:

I create an awesome video that earns $500, but after Tsu takes their 10% cut the total revenue would be $450 remaining. Which means that I would take 50% of $450 which equals $225 profit.

The first user who shared my video would earn one third (33.3%) of the $450, tallying their profit to $149.85.

The next user after that who shared the re-shared content, would receive an 11.1% share of the original $450. Their commissions would be $49.95 since their a third of a third, and so on.

VIDEO UPDATE:

Final Verdict

Tsu is a unique platform in that it combines the revenue sharing concept of YouTube with a Facebook like twist.

While the idea of generating side cash is appealing to everyday Facebook users, the harsh reality is that name brand companies and public figures with established followings will likely be the few whom will generate any substantial income.

John and Jane Doe may not make thousands per month but if they at least make enough money at the end of the year to pay for a cup of coffee doing something they’d be doing anyways (posting on Facebook).. well then it’s well worth it.

    Good explanation, but I’m a little confused… First you say that your “mother” and “grandmother” are getting cuts and than also the 1st and their 1st who re-shares the post will get the money.
    Second question. I’ve joined with you, but what if you are not “working” or you are band or you get out?

      I’m not so sure I understand what you mean. Care to rephrase?

        I’ve got the answer for second one πŸ™‚

        You said:
        “So let’s say that I created a really awesome video and it got a ton of shares and I made some money, but I joined under you. Well you would earn one-third of the revenue from the video that I made after Tsu has taken their cut. And whomever you joined under, would get a third of a third of that revenue, etc.”

        and than

        “I create an awesome video that earns $500, but after Tsu takes their 10% cut the total revenue would be $450 remaining. Which means that I would take 50% of $450 which equals $225 profit.
        The first user who shared my video would earn one third ….
        The next user after that who shared the re-shared content, would receive an 11.1% share….”

        In short…if I share somebody’s video and if I make my video I can be payed?

          Chris – are you going to answer this? My question is the same…

            Yeah if you share someone’s video and someone watches it on your profile, you will be paid because those page views will be happening on your profile.

            On the other hand, if you share a video and the person clicks through to the original sharer’s profile to view the video – then they will earn money.

            Hope that answers your question πŸ˜€

    Tsu is a social media that pays you to post, comment, and like.

    Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent have already joined Tsu.

    You already do that anyway, so why not get paid for it?

    You can also make money from referrals, from your followers and followers’ followers.
    So it’s important to join before your current followers from other social media do.

      As long as you have your Tsu.co link in your YouTube description, viewers will be able to click your referral link and sign up. Works with Facebook as well. Just share your link!
