Twitter has really exploded onto the scene over the past six months or so. As more and more people flock to use the micro blogging web site it is only going to be natural that people wonder if it is at all possible to earn any money from sending tweets. I mean, if the people who run Twitter are not making money than how can the ‘little people’ do it?
Well it is actually possible to earn money via Twitter. I’m not talking about affiliate marketing here, which is very possible. I’m talking about earning money by posting a Tweet and earning money every time someone clicks on a link in your Tweets.
Here are just a few of the companies that I use:
Update: Only Sponsored Tweets remains.
The first thing that I noticed about the web site is how badly their web site layout comes across. It looks like it was put together by a novice who did it in five minutes with their eyes closed and their good hand behind their back.
This is normally enough to put people off but if you look past that and dig a little further you will find they are actually a decent outfit. They pay per click and have limits on adverts where they only pay for clicks from people in certain countries to combat fraud.
The only downside is that the adverts are mainly about teeth whitening and other health-related products and not a lot of people seem willing to click on the links as they know they are adverts.
Maybe it is just that I don’t have many people on my list who want to click on them. I mainly have people trying to make money following me after all.
This is the brainchild of those clever folks over at IZEA, the same people behind the paid blogging network that we know as Pay-Per-Post. Although they are new they are on the rise as they have big bloggers like John Chow raving about earning $7,000 a day using them.
The layout is fantastic and very simple, I think they have about five pages on the admin panel and that is it.
The difference with this network however is that you do not look for ads, the advertisers actually seek you out. There are some guidelines that are in place to help you get more offers and to make sure the advertisers get good Twitter accounts.
– Twitter account must be over 120 days old.
– You should have some Tweets.
– You should have a nice amount of followers.
From what I’ve read the more Tweets and followers you have the more the advertisers will look at you.
This is one that I have not tried yet. They seem to work in a similar way to Sponsored Tweets in which the advertisers approach you. When I signed up it asked me to type in my Twitter username and it told me that based on the amount of followers I have and the amount of Tweets I could earn around $500 a month.
Let me know if these three companies make any money for you at all. Also feel free to leave a comment telling me if I have missed any others or even your own feelings on the above mentioned companies.
