How to Make Money off of your Twitter Account
Make Money with Twitter
Making money using Twitter is simple and easy. There are multiple ways of making money on Twitter including tweeting advertisements, promoting products, or promoting your affiliate links. This guide will show you the best methods for making money using Twitter and point you to additional resources and services that can be used to make money using Twitter.
Twitter Advertisement Services
- Sponsored Tweets
SponsoredTweets is a reputable service that allows both tweeters and advertisings to sign up to post and buy ads. They have a consistent amount of opportunities and give fair payments for ads posted depending on your follower counts.
RevTwt is very similar to SponsoredTweets. However, they seem to have less opportunities. RevTwt is a fair alternative, but I would recommend SponsoredTweets over RevTwt for people looking to earn money through tweeting ads on Twitter.
Post Advertisements on Twitter
A very simple method of making money on Twitter is tweeting advertisements of others. The payouts can vary drastically depending on how many followers you have and how responsive they are to the content you tweet.
Like other advertising methods on the web, tweeting advertisements earns revenue depending on how many times that add is clicked on. The amount of money offered per click depends on the offers you receive and accept. The more followers you have on twitter, the more likely you will get higher per-click offers using services.
The service that I've used which has given me consistent offers and payout has been SponsoredTweets. They allow you to sign up for an account easily and start receiving and tweeting advertisements shortly after creating your accounts. Another alternative to SponsoredTweets is RevTwt.
Promoting Affiliate Programs using Twitter
Advertising products on Twitter is extremely lucrative. You can potentially reach thousands of people if you target the right channels. If you have an existing brand and product that you already have, promoting it on Twitter is as simple as creating a Twitter account for it and urging your customers to follow it.
However, if you do not have your own products you're selling there are other methods of earning money through promoting products. Affiliate programs allow people to promote links to specific products. When somebody clicks that link and purchases that product, the affiliate (you) would earn a commission based on the price of the product.
There are a large amount of affiliate programs on the web, all of which offer different products for their affiliates to promote. The most popular service is by far Amazon Associates. This gives you the opportunity to tweet links to products on Amazon and earn money when somebody purchases the item you tweeted.
Another popular service that expands the opportunity to promote other products and services is Commission Junkie. Signing up for Commission Junkie is a more difficult process than Amazon Associates, but the opportunities are great.
Warnings About Posting Ads to your Twitter Account
While making money with Twitter sounds enticing, there is a possibility that it could have a negative impact on your twitter account.
Many people don't want to see ads in their Twitter stream, making it possible that you will lose followers from using these services. On top of that, if you have a reputation on the internet and on Twitter, posting ads could alter that reputation negatively.
