Social Network Marketing That Pays

How Interested are you in Social Network Marketing That Pays?

Where on a scale of 1-10 would you rate your level of interest at when it comes to social network marketing?

Do you even know what this means?

pointup4

The vast majority of network marketers I've met in the past 5 years have no 'real' idea of what social networking actually entails. The majority of people just think this is a numbers game. So they are steadily going through people like numbers, and failing to do the ONE Thing that they should be doing with all these huge numbers of people...

It's really simple and it's hiding in plain sight. People using social networking sites, and especially those of you who should be spending your time ON these sites engaged in Social Network Marketing; simply forget how important it is to be social. As I said it's hiding in plain sight. It's right under most people's noses.

Let's break Social Network Marketing down Further

In a recent report that focuses on the present and future of social network marketing examines just about all aspects of this Growing industry. That's right, this Is an industry all by itself and with over 800 social networks to choose from it's important to know what you are doing. First and foremost, please understand that the idea of Social Network Marketing stems almost directly from Word of Mouth Marketing; this has been one of the most effective methods of moving a product from the warehouse to the consumers doorstep. When someone we know talks positively about a product, a service, a vacation, or any experience - it increases the likelihood of us spending our money on that same experience.

Utilizing platforms such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter, TSU, Pinterest, Instagram and several others, Marketing has found a whole new pond to swim in. Most people are constantly talking about what they love, what they hate, and it's prime pickings for agencies which practice social network marketing to figure out what and who to advertise to. But it's important to understand that we are talking about a diverse industry with big time, and small time players in it.

When we come to understand just how much money is being generated from Social Networks; That's when we'll start to truly embrace using a Social Network That Pays us to post our thoughts; on the various brands we like or don't like. Because that's truly what's driving MOST of the money, in the big time players arena.  Network Marketers on the other hand fall into the small time players category. That's nothing to be ashamed of though.

A savvy network marketer SHOULD be using the power of these social networking mediums to grow their lists of contacts; and build strong relationships with people who can potentially become powerful business partners.  Opportunity is literally all around us, but do we recognize it when we see it?  Do we really and truly take advantage of opportunity when it's presented to us??

Something to think about.

Back to how Social Network Marketing can Pay You...

If you know what you are doing, socializing can pay off. Most people view socializing as a waste of time; The truth is time is only wasted, when we waste it.

Essentially, the 'small time players' need to pay closer attention to what the big time players are doing on social networking sites. The big time players are gathering information on all the people using social networking sites. Then they know who likes expensive stuff, who likes to save money, and who's some where in between. How well do YOU as a network marketer KNOW the people you are 'networking' with?  Do you spend any time at all reading what they post on their pages? OR do you only use social networks to talk about your self?

One of those activities = Socializing.

The other one, is not.

In Social Networking For Money (A Free Training from TopNetworkersGroup) I go over the 5 Things you should be doing on social networking sites!

pointup5

Basically, if you aren't DOING these things, you're not going to be making much money with your network marketing business. You're also going to fail at taking advantage of the huge opportunity that presents itself to you via the awesome and dynamic platforms, that we call social networking sites. The report cited states a prediction that these sites will grow 20.11% between now, and 2019. In other words, this is a trend, that isn't slowing down anytime soon.

Is TSU A Social Networking Revolution Or Not?

Quick Update; as of August 1st, 2016 - Tsu has shut it's doors. Please read the article below now -

TSU Closes Down: The Social Network Experiment Ends

Yesterday I wrote that I believe using TSU is a Revolutionary Act.  I actually posted my thoughts to TSU and surprisingly (not really) not everyone agree'd. So Is TSU a Social Networking Revolution or not?  I certainly think it's a worthwhile debate to have.  Facebook was a revolution - I think looking back on it all of us can agree on that. The way facebook made social networking fit into everyone's life was accomplished on a much larger scale than Myspace. However to be fair, Myspace truly set the pace for everything we see today.

So where other social networks have revolutionized how we communicate, keep in touch, share information, and make new friends - I feel TSU has the opportunity to revolutionize our role. I can see how TSU has the potential to redirect the money flowing to these social networks into the lives of its users. However in spite of what I believe, it's going to require others who think like me to bring about that kind of revolution.  I mean, why should social networks share their revenue with it's users?

Ironically enough it's the same kind of mentality at work with CEO's making so much money. Why should they pay employees more money?

It's not like the employees have anything to do with those profits .......

Hopefully you can hear the sarcasm jumping off the page.

So again I ask, Is TSU A Social Networking Revolution or not? (we now know the answer is .... Not. ***Update 8/9/16*** )

One TSU User shared his thoughts - " To me, Using TSU is NOT a revolutionary act. It's help to build a snowballing system that pays out a little for the people on the top of the pyramid and almost zero to the one on the bottom. It also means supporting a network that pays for copyright infringing and acts against it's own TOS. Talking bad about Facebook will not change or improve the situation 😉 " (read the entire post On TSU the Social Network That Pays)

Out of several comments this was the only one to Openly object to my statement.

What was said however, was quite interesting and can help several people in understanding just what TSU is really all about.

Is TSU doing any of the things this user claims? Not really. I do however want to try and go into some of these thoughts and ideas which have circulated. Bad ideas can be destructive and often are.

So let's deal with the first Bad Idea that only the people 'at the top' are making money.

It's the most Common Myth in MLM - I made a video that explains what is wrong with this perception of MLM compensation plans.

If TSU is ever going to be a true social networking revolution we have to get this Idea right - and make sure as many people understand it as possible. So, 'do the people at the top make all the money?' --- Let's deal with that right now.

Originally part of Do People At The Top Make All The Money in MLM?

I also recommend listening to Tim Sales's video Who Is Getting Rich in MLM - as he does an even better job of explaining why this type of compensation is the most fairest business model there is. We get what we earn in MLM - and while TSU is certainly not an MLM it has a lot in common with MLM's. The perception people have is that of it being an MLM. This speaks to the reality of where the industry is at this point in time. Several companies are adopting this business model as a way to 'get the word out' without spending money on advertisements.

Think about it, did you ever see a Facebook commercial before you signed up?

Or did someone you know tell you about it? Did it keep popping up all over the place? Did you feel 'left out' so you created an account?

I know the answers to all of these questions.

I know that no one Saw a commercial for Facebook; I know you all saw it popping up everywhere. I know most of you joined facebook because you didn't want to be left out.

That is the society We live in. None of you can fool me!

Read What Facebook’s $250 Billion Worth Means for TSU

Facebook is earning serious income because every single day, Millions of people are on their platform - posting content; reading content; sharing content; and commenting on content. In the world of marketing and advertising - the goal has always been to get in front of as many eyeballs as possible. Why else do you think the Superbowl has always been one of the premier slots to advertise? Because so many people are watching the same channel at the same time; it almost never happens that way.

This is where TSU comes in.

If we as users could have the same vigor and excitement to Post and Share all the Content we do on Other networks as we have for doing it on TSU; We can create a Social Networking Revolution. The objection made by the TSU user is common. Too many of them are concerned with what others are making. They're so mad that a few people who got in early and referred a lot of people who turned around and did the same are now making so much money in comparison to what they are making.

However, any money made on TSU is more, by comparison to what people make on FB.

Also the people with Larger Networks Deserve a Larger share of the Pie.

What we need to focus on instead of how big their slice is, is HOW big is the Pie?

How can we GROW The PIE so that even the little guy, is making a decent income From social networking?

That is what I mean by a social networking revolution. That is why I say, that I believe Using TSU is a revolutionary act. When you use TSU you help grow the pie. When you refer others to TSU you grow the pie. When you encourage others to do the same, we all grow the pie. The bigger the pie, the more we can all eat.

What Facebook’s $250 Billion Worth Means for TSU

Before you read further I have a Quick Update;

as of August 1st, 2016 - Tsu has shut down it's opportunity Please read this now -

TSU Closes Down: The Social Network Experiment Ends

The Original article is below.

I'm writing this one for TSU users. I want to talk about what Facebook's $250 Billion Worth means for TSU.

TSU Users; earlier today I shared a post from Bloomberg - Facebook is now worth $250 Billion (with a b) ---- everyone using facebook; Congratulate yourselves for what you did here. Facebook never charged us a Penny;

So how are they making $250 Billion in a 12 month Calendar Period????

Count on me to be Honest with you.

Because of you, you, and you. All of you who use Facebook for free help the site generate revenue. If only you took the same approach to TSU ... none of you use facebook for the money; So why are you doing it with TSU?

Too many people join TSU and think it's just a way to make money.

They don't understand the "Industry of Social Networking Sites" - They do not understand how Ad Revenue is generated - or how it will be distributed. They don't understand that it's going to take several years to generate the kinda money Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram generate.

By that time though, some of us are going to get a piece of the revenue. Others will be hopping on late; and will probably have the same kinda complaints people have now; that they only get a few pennies per day ...

While the rest of us, who got on when it launched; and who continue to use it and tell others; will be glad we decided to stick with the network.

Then again, TSU could fold up.

TSU could go out of business.

I mean it's business afterall.  Any business could go out of business.

Business is risky.

It's a risk to make a few pennies or a few dollars per day for a while; to hope that some day you're generating a few hundred Dollars per day.

But when you consider the risk; Other people's mentality makes no sense to me. Facebook is never gonna give us a cent. Twitter is never gonna give us a cent. Instagram will never give us a cent. But i promise you, they will continue to generate billions; because The masses will continue using these networks.

Unless....

People with Influence start talking about TSU.

I've used what little influence I have to bring a hand crop of people to this site; I thank them from time to time for their support; for 'at least' looking at the network. A handful of them have done the same. Meanwhile others with far MORE influence than I have; chose to Hate on TSU; and use their Influence to keep People from Looking. It's sad when people do this.

They ensure that the people at the top stay at the top; while also keeping those at the bottom, where they are.

To me, using TSU is a revolutionary act. (at least, it was .... *Updated 8/9/16)

tsu revolution

TO me, NOT doing what the masses do is a step towards bringing down a SYSTEM that has flooded wealth to a small % - while keeping it from the masses.

Every single day when YOU log into Social Media; and share Thoughts; News Stories, YouTube Clips, or what ever -- KEEP in mind -- that where you Share this #Content Matters.

You are either part of the Solutions.

OR --- You are part of the Problems.

The problems - all the money in the wrong people's hands.

I'm sorry but, Mark Zuckerberg and all his genius doesn't use his money to Promote causes that would End police brutality; he's silent about black lives mattering; So I'd rather not Consciously contribute to his Financial Empire.

Sure, I'll still use FB; but you see what I do; I encourage people to USE something else other than FB; because if we don't, we cannot complain later.

We cannot say we didn't have an option.

We cannot say we didn't have a choice to make Mark Rich; or redirect that flow of income. 5 years from Today we'll look back and say "I'm glad I did" - or "I wish I had" --- today though; today is your chance to make a choice - a choice for good. A choice ... for better
