SponsoredTweets Will Pay YOU to Send Tweets

Twitter is the hottest social media site right now. It's a micro-blogging platform that answers the question: What are you doing? Using Twitter is a great way to network with people that are in the same niche. Twitter helped me increase my subscribers, enroll more members in my text ad exchanges and get more signups to my businesses. It has also helped me make money with SponsoredTweets.

Before Twitter became a household name, companies were already looking at ways to monetize it. Guess what? Companies have found ways to monetize the twitter stream. I've tried several of the companies, but sponsoredtweets is the most lucrative so far. SponsoredTweets pays an established amount per tweet. Who determines the amount? Well, you do. They give you a suggestion, but you can certainly ask for more or less. When you register on SponsoredTweets, you are given a choice of categories to choose from. Those categories should describe the type of tweets you send out. This is how advertisers find tweeters to sponsor. Try to be as specific as possible. You only have 4 choices, so pick your categories wisely.

What do you need to qualify for SponsoredTweets?

  1. You need to have a Twitter account that is at least 60 days old.
  2. You must have tweeted a minimum of 100 times.
  3. You must have at least 100 followers.

How can one make money using Twitter and Sponsored Tweets?

  1. You can get paid by advertisers to tweet an ad.
  2. You can refer Tweeters to earn 10% of their earnings or Advertisers to earn 5% of each transaction they make.

When I first started I asked for over $26.00 per tweet. Several advertisers purchased tweets and I was able to receive payment soon after. Payments can be withdrawn once your funds equal $50.00 or more. They have a rule that the cpc of the tweet be a minimum of $1.50. If it doesn't reach that amount, you must rewrite the ad and retweet it. This may happen no more than twice. If after the third tweet, your cpc doesn't reach $1.50, you receive the funds in your account 2 hours later. My tweets were not reaching the $1.50 until the 2nd or 3rd tweet. So I decided to lower my asking price to get more offers. I was experimenting to see if I got more offers thereby increasing my overall earnings. (It didn't work out that way, so I'm going to increase the amount closer to my initial price). Checkout the screenshot of my Sponosred Tweets earnings.

Now that you know how making money with Twitter using SponsoredTweets works, I know you realize that tweeters with more followers make more money. I hope you didn't think I was just going to leave you trying to figure out how to increase your followers. I'm going to give you a few of the sites and methods I used to increase my followers to 14,578. Just follow the links below and take action. If you don't take action, nothing is going to change.

I hope you find this article helpful. Feel free to add me supermom_in_ny on Twitter. I'm on twitter most of the day, since I work online. Don't hesitate to send me a direct message or tweet @supermom_in_ny . Social media is about interaction, so say hello!

  • Your account must be 120 days old.
  • You must have at least 100 followers.
  • You must have a minimum of 100 status updates.
  • You must have a paypal account to receive payment.
  • You can also earn money by referring other Tweeters and/or advertisers.

      @daisydayz A few years, but I was making $20.00 a tweet at first. That's before all the celebrities starting signing up and then normal tweeters were not as appealing. I have 23,344 followers. Here's my twitter acct: https://twitter.com/#!/supermom_in_ny

I do hope it works, as I do need to increase my online income. thank you for your informative Hubs; I am making changes to my existing accounts based on your recommendations.

      You set your own price. Now, that pricce should depend on the amount of followers you have and their responsiveness to your tweets.

      I have a large Twitter network, so I charge according to that. Top bloggers that have over 50,000+ followers earn much more per tweet, ranging from $117.00 and up. Celebrities make even more. The best part of Twitter is that you also earn a percentage of each referrals' earnings. This can add up fast...

      There is another Twitter ad network that is paying top bloggers $3000.00 and up per tweet. However, that one is geared toward the top inlfuencers of each industry: sports, internet celev, Hollywood, etc.

      I always hear of people making money off google clicks, now twitter. How much can you really make? How much work does it take to make enough to live off of?
