I am starting to love Tsu
Up until the past two months I have been an out and out Instagramer. I couldn’t get enough of it, I found Instagram to be the quickest and simplest way to show my followers my progress through my self healing journey.
It seemed like the perfect output to reach a new demographic everyday and grow my regular followers and whilst also relying on my visual based training background. With Instagram’s main way to reach new people being through the use of hashtags, it all seemed simple enough, but it was always feeling like there was something missing. Something that was stopping me reaching my full potential and my website analytics agreed.
The initial flaw I kept coming across when trying to work out why traffic wasn’t being drawn towards my website from Instagram, was there was no way I could direct traffic from an Instagram post to a specific blog post. I was supposed to completely rely on the single website link posted in my Instagram profile. Having to rely on my posts to engage followers enough to encourage them to make a minimum of two extra clicks more than any other network, just to get to my landing page, let alone to get to a specific article or recipe.

There is no split in ad revenue to the admins and Tsu Charity, they now work on a 45% content creator, 45% network and 10% split. Channels / groups that were created before the update to v3.0 have kept the original Tsu monetization split where group admins and a designated charity benefit from the revenue.
