Twitter Money Making – 3 Cool Tips To Use Twitter For Money
Article by Andy Brooks
Feel like making money with twitter? You can! Twitter is perhaps the fastest growing social networking tool around, and it’s very possible to quickly get twitter followers you can make money of. But how to do it. Here are some handy tips.
1. Direct selling. You can send your followers tweets about a good offer you have, or this cool affiliate product. Of course you earn commission on those. You put the link to the offer in your tweet and some of your followers will click on it, and perhaps even better, buy the product so you earn commission.
It’s a little tricky to do all this in 140 characters (the maximum length of a ‘tweet’), but you can make your affiliate or product link shorter by using a ‘shortening tool’, available online, such as bit.ly, budurl.com or tinyurl.com. Check them out.
Make sure you also mention the link in your public profile that people get to see. I’m not 100% sure if all this works. I do, however, have some evidence for myself that direct sales work, albeit not with overwhelming success. But still, my modest free money is still free money!
2. The second way to make money with twitter is alert people to a freebie opportunity. Simply put a link in your tweet to a CPA (=Cost-Per-Action) offer. CPA might be a whole new world for you, and you may need to read up on it. Google it.
With CPA offers you can promote offers that would earn you a small amount, perhaps a dollar or two. The good thing is that people often only have to leave an email address or ZIP code, and then they get a chance to win an iPod, or win a certain amount of money for free shopping or whatever.
This stuff can do well for you, especially if the offer is related to your interest. This method is similar to the one above, but the offer is attractive as it doesn’t cost anything for your twitter followers.
3. The third and last tip is perhaps the best: make money with twitter by giving away a freebie, e.g. a report, ebook, video etc. in return for people entering their email address in your opt-in box. So you send a tweet with a link to your freebie, and build an email list. Then you can market to that list later. Making money from your list is more effective than direct sales to twitter traffic, even though that has worked for me.
There is one important thing. For any or all of the above methods to work, you need to get a large enough amount of targeted (like-minded) twitter traffic to your offers. So first, do try and build up a good size targeted twitter list to be successful.
