First Penny on tsu

I joined tsu a couple days ago after reading an article from Ruby3881 about the site. Tsu is basically like Facebook, or at least that's how it seems to me. You can like, comment and share posts the same as Facebook, and the layout is similar. The big difference is that tsu pays users to interact on the site.

Now, you won't get rich, but I was surprised to see that I already had a penny in my account when I signed on this morning. Somewhere I read that it usually takes a week to make money. I know a penny isn't much,but you have to start somewhere.

We shall see how the site does. I plan to give it a good try. I've found several people I know on there already, which is nice. I don't have any "children" yet, which is what they call referrals. Maybe I'll get some one of these days.

If you are on tsu, look me up. I'm using the same name as here.

I just joined from Ruby3881 's post as well. I'm not going to manage to post tonight, although I might finish my profile and make sure I have links out there on sites which let me do so. $100 for a check seems a horrible climb from zero but if I find my reviews and odd blogs take off, it may not be that far away.

Well you beat me cause I don't have no dang penny, lol. I am giving it a try too just to test the waters. I better keep an eye on you and see how you got that penny cause I want one (or two, LOL)

Since I'm not on Facebook or Twitter (only Google+) I don't think I'll be joining Tsu anytime Tsoon!

I just hit $1.24 there. The trick is to share what you find cool and engage others in discussions more than follow4follow and all that. emoticon :smile:

Yeah, it will take forever but it's not hard at least.

AngelSharum wrote on November 13, 2014, 4:29 PM

LOL, I have no idea how I did it either.

AngelSharum wrote on November 13, 2014, 4:29 PM

Yeah, I've been posting and then looking through my Feed and commenting and all that.

I've been posting links to PP and did a few likes and am still at zero.

So you have to share to earn?

Well, I guess I'll pass on this one and use Tsu simply as yet another promotion channel.

AngelSharum wrote on November 13, 2014, 6:01 PM

You aren't supposed to share unless you really like something. I use it just like Facebook. I haven't shared a whole lot. I do more liking and commenting.

Found you. I sent a friend request.

A penny is a penny. I hope it continues to grow for you.

It's nice to know that you can earn without a lot of referrals. Good luck!

AngelSharum wrote on November 14, 2014, 3:38 PM

I think I found you and sent the friend request. I'm up to 2 cents now. :)

AngelSharum wrote on November 14, 2014, 3:38 PM

I'm up to 2 cents now. No idea how...lol

I have just read that it's an mlm thing, like you need to recruit others to earn and when your recruit does the same thing, they will be your downline and you earn from that as well. I'm not really good at that so not sure I would be interested in tsu

AngelSharum wrote on November 14, 2014, 9:13 PM

I'm not good at it either. I'm up to 2 cents but I only have one referral and that happened today. It will take me forever to get to payout I'm sure.

I will have to look you up because I am on there too! =)

AngelSharum wrote on November 17, 2014, 5:32 PM

I just accepted your request. I wasn't on all weekend.

There are a lot of people who insist the only way to earn on Tsu is through sharing. They will even tell their readers that the reader will earn five cents per share, or some ridiculous thing. While it's true that some users have noticed they earn more when their posts are shared, I suspect that's just a matter of increased reach. Views, likes, and comments are just as valuable. And we also earn through our children and their children :)

Ruby3881 wrote on November 21, 2014, 9:14 AM

One thing I've noticed is that I'm earning more on my writing sites - and getting new referrals too - because of Tsu. So even if it's a slow climb to $100 on Tsu, there are side benefits :)

Ruby3881 wrote on November 22, 2014, 1:09 PM

Congratulations Angel! I hope you earn many, many more pennies to go with the first one :)

AngelSharum wrote on November 22, 2014, 6:28 PM

I'm up to 12 cents now. :)

I just joined tsu yesterday. It's actually how I discovered this site. I prefer it over facebook honestly. It's more basic, but since it's new, it has time and room to evolve... but because it is new it doesn't seem to be filled with as much negativity as facebook either. And hey, even if we're only getting pennies here and there... it's still more than facebook offers anyone.

Glenn wrote on November 24, 2014, 11:37 AM

It took a while for me to get my first penny on Tsu too. Every platform has it's place. Tsu is great for interacting and is similar to Facebook, as you said. PersonaPaper is great for writing short articles or blogs , and also for engaging with other writers.

AngelSharum wrote on November 24, 2014, 11:49 AM

That's the way I see it as well. It's not like it's hard or anything.

AngelSharum wrote on November 24, 2014, 11:50 AM

Yep. I'm up to 19 cents now. Moving along.

Glenn wrote on November 24, 2014, 1:12 PM

I'm making 1 to 2 cents a day on Tsu now. One day I even received 3 cents. Woopie!
