Your unemployed! Under-employed! Or simply just lazy! Let me show you a way you could turn all that around, it worked for me and still Is, I am sure if you follow my lead’ you will be smiling to the bank soon- In 140 characters or fewer, is Twitter?
Well, it’s a money-losing website made up of very short messages (like this one) where your kids (and C-list celebrities) waste time.
It’s also a popular new medium—tens of millions of users and counting—that businesses use to build brands (and sometimes destroy them).
Twitter is a social media network that has gained more than 300 million users since its launch in 2006. Many of these users are businesses. They use Twitter to keep in track with consumers and give them messages about deals and brands. Personal users also use Twitter to promote their careers, services and partners. If you are a talented Twitter user, you can use this platform to make money. You should be good at marketing yourself, marketing for others and staying in touch with trends and current events.
I manage 3 tweet accounts for 3 different companies, so I think I am a bit more qualified to speak on this topic.
Let me lead you through the steps you can learn on how to earn money using your Twitter account.
STEPS – Tips and Warnings
1-Become an adept Twitter user. No one with rudimentary Twitter skills can make money on Twitter. You need to be good at getting followers to your accounts, using multiple accounts and crafting catchy tweets.
2-Get experience in marketing. In order to monetize yourself, you should understand concepts, such as Internet marketing plans, lead generation and affiliate marketing. You should have a website or resume that shows your marketing and Twitter experience to websites who are looking to outsource their Twitter account.
3-Use Twitter for your business account. Social media accounts are ideal for website lead generation. Use a lead capture strategy or giving Twitter-only deals, free content or a free trial, if the user clicks a Twitter link and signs up for an account. Earn money by contacting these leads through emails with product offers targeted to their interests.
4-Use your blog and your Twitter account to become an affiliate marketer. Find products that people who read your blog would be interested in, and then contact the company to get an affiliate link to put on your website. Every 10 to 50 tweets, include the affiliate link in a Tweet, with a high recommendation.
Affiliate marketing allows people who advertise their products on a website to get the portion of a product’s sales. The producers of the product gain valuable advertising, while the affiliate marketer can expect a monthly check for a percentage of sales, if the marketing is done well.
5-Research sponsored tweets via Internet search engines. Many companies are looking for popular Twitter accounts to occasionally post about their products. Contact the company, make a monetary agreement and begin your pay-per-tweet arrangement.
Make sure you have a written agreement with the company and proof of your tweets that you can submit to them. Also, make sure you choose an interval of sponsored tweeting that does not annoy your followers. If you lose followers, you lose potential sales and your sponsored ad contract may be canceled.
6-Sign up for sponsored tweeting through 1 of the new sponsored tweeting businesses, such as Ad.ly, Magpie, TwitPub or Twittad. These sites aggregate the companies that need to have sponsored ads and make them available to willing Twitter users. Sign up for an account, tweet an ad at the interval of your choice, and usually you will be paid by PayPal.
7-Sign up to write for Bukisa.com. This online publisher contracts people to write interesting articles, and then makes money off the advertisements in the side columns. You work your way up a tiered program based on the quality and clicks you get from your articles or videos.
8-Sell your own products. Many people use Twitter to promote eBay auctions and etsy.com crafts. You can simply post a shortened link on your Twitter account, and with a personal touch, you are likely to get more bids.
9-Sell your services on Twitter. Many professionals use Twitter as a way to stay in touch with other people in their industry. This new kind of networking allows you to develop relationships, develop partnerships and sell yourself to do work.
If you feel embarrassed promoting yourself from your professional account, understand it is a common practice. A little self promotion can quickly lead to a job.
