I'd love to be that someone, as I am a big believer in this new network of social media!
It's called Tsu, pronounced "sue", which they say means "ideal" in Japanese.
That's because the founders truly feel this is the ideal way for social media to happen.
And I could not agree more.
If you want to just go check it out now, you can click on this link.
(you have to be "invited" to join...think, Pinterest. :) )
Let me start by saying this real quick, so you know where I am coming from
(because if you know me, you know I am not a huge "pusher" or "promoter" of things)...
but Parker and I truly believe in this.
We were fortunate enough to be brought in by a good friend who has had his hands and efforts pouring into this site since he heard about it while it was still in its Beta version.
After much due diligence and research (I AM married to a lawyer!),
as well as seeking some wise business counsel, and lots of prayer together,
we decided to jump full force into backing this new site.
And we feel so much peace, and even joy about it, and are excited about sharing it now with everyone we know!
As much as I love social media, and use it daily...I never thought I'd be totally immersed into spreading the word about it, and actually be excited to spend my time and efforts on helping to build this network.
But with this...I love working on it, and sharing about it...
Because it is done right.
The RIGHT way social media should be done.
let me explain.
You probably love your Facebook and Instagram accounts as much as I do, and I am not speaking against them.
What I am going to try and explain, is that there is just a better way.
(I'll try to be quick and simple, track with me here)
So, you know all those ads over on the side of Facebook?
Those advertisers get paid by the number of eyeballs that are driven to their ads/buy their stuff, right?
So, those companies pay BIG bucks to Facebook to be seen on all of our "walls".
(about 12 billion bucks this year)
And WHO is it that is driving the traffic of eyeballs to look at those ads?
YOU are. We are. I am.
(and I am not just talking about if you actually click on those ads, which let's be honest, I hardly ever do that...the advertisers just want to be seen. Just like a billboard.)
So to the big question.
WHO is keeping all the money that advertisers pay for people to look at them?
The big guys are, that's who. Facebook.
That's why it is worth Billions.
yes, with a B.
And again, who is driving the traffic, providing the content, building the network larger, so that more eyes see those virtual billboards?
yep, WE are.
So a kind of blunt way to look at it?
We are employees of Facebook (and Instagram, who Facebook owns).
I'll let you re-read that if you need.
ok did it sink in?
So now, let me tell you what the awesome people at Tsu have done about it all.
They have taken a different approach, in that the company (Tsu) is only keeping 10% of all the revenue from ads.
And the other 90%?
It is being distributed to the content providers, the ones who drive the ad dollars...US.
Why would Tsu.co not keep all the ad revenue?
Because they recognize that the content providers are the ones creating the value!
Genius and honest, if you ask me.
A pretty beautiful way for things to be done.
So what do you have to do to be a part?
Create an account, that's all!
The only difference between this and other sites is (like I mentioned above), you have to be invited by someone already in the network.
Oh, and that you get PAID!!
I'll invite you again at the end of this post! I want you in on this, friends!
It's free, and it even has an awesome app you can find in the app store.
(PS i LOVE the app, it's so simple yet has a ton of features. Very clean feeling too, which I love!).
Once you join, all you have to do is just post.
Post like you do to any other site! Share pictures, articles, random things...
not anything you aren't already doing!
And then build your network.
Invite your friends with your own "shortcode" (the link of your profile).
Invite as many people as you want, the bigger this network grows, the more advertisers will pay to be on it! And the more advertisers pay, the more the content providers get paid...
aka, money in your "bank".
One thing to keep in mind as a bonus of this, as you build a network...
The bigger the content provider, the more followers they bring in, right?
So that means, be thinking of who you may know that has a large following, whether it's a person, a celebrity of some sort, a business or whatever.
The more followers who "sign up" under your code invite, the more potential you have to make money!
It sounds a little network-marketing-ish, but believe me, it is not.
(been there done that!)
...this is actually the opposite...the money goes to ALL the content providers, not just the big ones.
ie. some big names are already on Tsu, like the rapper 50cent. (so cool!)
So not only is 50cent gonna make a ton from his millions of followers that will follow him over, but the guy that invited 50cent to join will also make a percentage of that.
So awesome, right?
oh, and speaking of 50cent, and the other celebs on Tsu...be watching for a media day very soon!!
This thing is going to blow up once they all announce they are on!! woot!!
And as far as your bank goes, there is so much to tell you about that.
Pretty awesome stuff that you can do with the money you earn.
(get a check sent to you, "transfer" money to other friends in the network, donate it directly to a charity with the click of a button, or just leave it there and watch your royalties grow!)
I've already made a little money, y'all...and with only 1,200 people on the beta version of the site!
Imagine what it could be like with 120K people on, or 12 million, or...you get my point.
So I am ending this with some important things y'all should check out...
first of all, here is the invite to join and make your own account.
(and once you make your account, you can get to the FAQ's through the setting tab, and that has a ton of good info to help understand it more!)
So, have I convinced you?
If I haven't that's ok, because I fully think that when this thing catches fire, you will see that you should be on it too! :)
We truly just want all our friends to be blessed by this amazing new network and platform.
So, thanks for listening.
And please, do not hesitate to email me personally if you have any questions or want more info.
I love you all.
Welcome (or Come on over!) to Tsu!!
