Have you ever believed in a message so much that to you it can never fail?
This is how I feel about every business or campaign that I enter into. If you don’t believe it will succeed and you don’t have the faith then how will it work?
I believe that “faith rewards”
Now I have ventured into a lot of new social sites and online opportunities and nearly all have failed. Does this deter me? Maybe for a second.
A recent example of this is Tsu, the social site that rewarded members for the content that they produced. Now just because Tsu failed doesn’t make the time I spent there a huge waste. Tsu had a great message that I believed in and that was content creators should be rewarded for the content that they produce. Social sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have built huge empires off the back of the content creators work and given the user very little in exchange. And this is widely accepted across social media and there lies the problem. Social sites are habit forming and their members are creatures of comfort. It costs the member nothing to be on and use the site, all their friends are there so why change? Well, you change because there is a better way.

Tsu had the right message but the problem was that the management didn’t believe their own message. Catastrophic errors were made. But the failure of Tsu that doesn’t make the message wrong. Many ex Tsu members are left with the impression that the social message failed, that rewarding members for the content they produce can’t succeed. Maybe they are right, I believe they are wrong and they have just lost faith. But faith is a test of character, nothing comes easy in life, and just because Tsu failed doesn’t mean that you and I failed yet we ditch what we once believed in.
Don’t let the failings of Tsu send you back to the comfort zone of Facebook.

IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE SOCIAL SITES REWARDED THE CONTENT CREATOR AND EVERYONE WAS A
What would the social media landscape look like if Facebook shared these incredible profits with their users?
There are families around the world that do not have enough money to put food on the table We are very much a global society that consists of “the haves and the have nots”
The message is that we can migrate the 92 billion dollars in Advertising revenue currently going to Silicon Valley, to those who are creating the content – the people and at the same time still run a profitable social platform.
The accepted message is to accept the Take,Take,Take mentality within all social sites. But there is a much better way. Just because Tsu failed doesn’t mean that we can’t still succeed.
True faith is rewarded
