This is a guest post by Anil Gupta of scopeForMoney.com

As we all know Twitter is among the hottest social networks currently on the internet. It is the most used tool for those who are trying to market on the internet. It is boon for internet marketers. This also means that bloggers like us can make fast money online using Twitter.

People can get success in making money with their Twitter profile like we use blogging as a mean to make money. And the best thing about Twitter is that profile pages as well as lots of services related to twitter are free. In today’s post, I’m going to discuss Top 10 Killer Ideas For Making Money With Twitter:

make money with twitter

Idea 1: Direct Advertising

The companies which want to advertise their products through Twitter. However, these companies require a high click-through rate of your tweets. The click through rate of your tweets can be analyzed by URL tracking services like bit.ly or SU.pr. Also you will be requiring a large number of followers. So if you have a good click-through ratio and large number of people following you then this is a good option.

Idea 2: Monetizing Twitter Profile Background

The background of Twitter profile can you earn you some money too. There are websites like TwittAd.com which provide services to twitter user to monetize their twitter background page. Advertisers who are interested in you will place a background image on our profile which provides publicity to their company. You can select the duration and price you want to keep your advertiser. Once that is finalized TwittAd will use the Twitter API to upload the ad to your Twitter profile.

Idea 3: Personal Bio

Did you know that your bio on Twitter could also be worth some money. Bio is the area of your Twitter profile page where you write about yourself. You can make money by putting a sales message on your bio.

Idea 4: Redirecting Services

This method to make money on Twitter is somewhat similar to the CPV (cost-per-view) way of making money. When a person clicks on your tweet links to reach his desired page then there is an advertisement page that opens up for a few seconds before it is redirected to the landing page. The payout in this type of advertising is generally in CPM (per thousand impressions). The only drawback is that this may not be appreciated by your followers who click on your link. So the point is to not put an ad link to all links that tweet on your profile.

Idea 5: Finding Sponsors

Twitter could be a great place where you can find your future sponsors. You can carefully have many people of your blog niche following you and then tweet for sponsors. Many webmasters have found sponsors by tweeting it on Twitter.

Idea 6: Tweeting Affiliate Links

This is a way to sell affiliate products through your tweets. If you are a reputed Twitter user with many followers then there is a high chance that your followers purchase affiliate links that you recommend. So by tweeting link to the affiliate product page you can get high commission on each sale depending on the product. Just make sure that you are selling quality products and not poor quality as it will affect your credibility for future affiliate sales.

Idea 7: Build a Brand

By tweeting you can eventually build a brand for your company. By tweeting your niche posts. You can create a brand image for yourself or your company. Twitter is a powerful medium which many people use; it is up to us to brand ourselves. This can happen in the long run as people will slowly begin to recognize you.

Idea 8: Professional Twitterer

This is a lot like pro-blogging, those who become professional Twitterers. Pro-Twitterers are people who do not tweet for themselves but are hired by big corporations and companies to build an online presence through Twitter.

Idea 9: Twitter Trends

You can keep up with the trends that are occurring on Twitter to optimize it on your site. These trends are topics that people are looking for most on the internet. You can make use of this trend to post new topics or provide new insight.

Idea 10: Make Invaluable Connections

Almost all big people of the internet make use of Twitter. Make priceless contacts with people who are more successful than you. This way you can learn a lot and they could prove to be very useful to you in the long run.

I have a friend who’se a professional twitterer. The job is simply amazing. I remember myself exclaiming… “someone pay’s you to… tweet?!?”. Haha. Of course that was still the dawn of Twitter. After that, he was able to expound my knowledge on the social media power of twitter.

Just reacting to akira07. Those who think twitter will die just lack foresight. It’s becoming a powerful and successful business tool generating millions for users. We expect it to grow not die

And also, just wanna add some opinion. I think even facebook have more user registered, but twitter still more effective since fb is mostly used for “make a friend” purpose :P

Yes, sometimes, most of the Internet Business is like that. People earn lakhs from just putting links or ads in the site. So, its not a surprise someone pays for tweeting.

@ZXT Its not so easy for you to get paid for tweeting. And BTW, I have seen some sites paying to twitterers to tweet using their URL shorteners. We can try this.

And now you’re understand about the twitter power, right? Well, how your friend now? Is it already success?

In the past, i’m also confuse, how can twitter used to make money since it’s only social networking/microblogging + there is only 140 characters allowed.
.-= akira07´s last blog ..Make or Break – Website Review =-.

Senthil Ramesh December 14, 2009 at 5:40 pm

Now many of the sites started depending on Twitter and the 140 char thing has become standard for many.

I think the profesional twitterer is not just a famous one, but it must be a person who have skill to make effective message just by 140 character tweets.

.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How to Increase Traffic during Contests – Part I =-.

Yeah its basically sending sms message to all your Tweeter followers. Whether they like it or not they will get your message. The more followers you have the more individual you will reach.

@Akira. Of course Akira, no one cares about Advertisement SMS or calls but while in Tweeting they catch you or make the msg in a catchy way that you certainly visit and some of the people take action.

And if your friend would like, advice him/her to make e-book about twitter monetization but with detailed step by step. I think it will sell well since we’re know, twitter monetization is hot topic for twitter user now :).

Great suggestion Akira. I must say giving away E books gives you good result and when we write about popular topics like twitter or making money, it definitely be a success.

Anil Gupta December 12, 2009 at 4:25 pm

I would suggest you to get some genuine followers to your Twitter account and share valuable stories with them. And when you do it, there will be more people interested in your profile on Twitter and there will also be some people who would be interested in using your services to promote their businesses

Senthil Ramesh December 12, 2009 at 4:48 pm

agreed with anil. get some genuine, real followers of niche. there are so many sites to make money with. sponsored tweets and twitvert are some example.
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How To Use Facebook Effectively =-.

akira07 December 13, 2009 at 3:17 am

If my definition about genuine follower is right, so the mostly effective way to get it is : To show your twitter account, and offer people to follow only on site which have same topic with your mostly tweet topic, right?

F.e if your tweet is mostly about make money online, it’s better to search follower from smartbloggerz, dp, tzi, right?
.-= akira07´s last blog ..Make or Break – Website Review =-.

Senthil Ramesh December 14, 2009 at 5:42 pm

You got it right, Akira. It should e of ur niche.
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How To Use Facebook Effectively =-.

akira07 December 12, 2009 at 7:48 pm

What is defined by genuine follower? Is it about people who have same interest with you or what? If yes, too bad that i know from 200 of my follower, half of them is about just to following back because i following them up.
.-= akira07´s last blog ..Make or Break – Website Review =-.

Senthil Ramesh December 12, 2009 at 8:06 pm

Genuine in the sense following u for the purpose of following u. I have recently come across a list of 1000 people who will follow u back if u follow them. They are now genuine. They follow lot of people ultimately see none of their updates.
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How To Use Facebook Effectively =-.

akira07 December 13, 2009 at 3:15 am

Oh i get it. So genuine follower is a follower who follow you to see an update from you, right? Or in other word, their taking attention on our tweet. CMIIW :P

Senthil Ramesh December 14, 2009 at 5:45 pm

CMIIW? What does it mean, Akira?
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How To Use Facebook Effectively =-.

Deepika December 14, 2009 at 6:18 pm

I think CMIIW means “Correct Me If I’m wrong”.

ZXT December 17, 2009 at 5:42 am

The only problem is you can not choose your follower. I mean you can follow someone interesting but how do you get someone interesting or genuine to follow you. Besides what will you do if someone you think isn’t “genuine” follows you? Block them?
.-= ZXT´s last blog ..My Bohol Trip part 1 =-.

Yes but if you feel like some one suspeicious following you, you can definitely block them.
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How to Increase Traffic during Contests – Part I =-.

ZXT December 13, 2009 at 9:52 am

Yes its not easy but I think what you need to first is to build your followers before thinking of any paid tweets.

Senthil Ramesh December 14, 2009 at 5:41 pm

Go for sponsored tweets Bro. I think many people even professionals are using it.
.-= Senthil Ramesh´s last blog ..How To Use Facebook Effectively =-.

akira07 December 14, 2009 at 6:04 pm

Again, i will go for it but i should manage my twitter account properly yet. Maybe the first step is by deleting some ungenuine follower?

Anyway, since i find comment level is become 5 again, i just reply your question above here. CMIIW is stand for “Correct Me If I’m Wrong” :P
.-= akira07´s last blog ..Make or Break – Website Review =-.

what if you have very few genuine follower? You might ended up deleting half of your followers.

Rockin post Anil, affiliate links are a real good way to make money with twitter, but i doubt that direct advertising is efficient enough unless you have a mass number of followers or a very famous blog. Anyhow this has been a pretty good post. I’ve spoken to many people who have made from $40 to $120 from Twitter, this maybe a small amount but it is very useful for newbies.

Anil Gupta December 12, 2009 at 4:37 pm

I think there is no harm in doing advertisement on any platform by the time we are sharing valuable resources with our blog readers and followers on Twitter. With this, we also need to keep a ratio of something like 10 free tweets + one paid tweet. And your followers will not mind that one paid tweet if it’s of some use to them or you are promoting something which they will get at a very cheap prices if they buy that product through you. Suppose you share tips about making money to your followers on Twitter and in between, you send few tweets some of products that are going to help them earn some money some way will be as helpful as your non-paid tweets

akira07 December 12, 2009 at 7:37 pm

Anil, first, thanks for the great article. But anyway, do you compare all those 10 technique to twitter rules? I fear some of the technique is forbidden by twitter itself.

No akira, you can relax. None of these methods are banned by Twitter. In fact, Twitter bosses know that Twitter is a powerful marketing tool, rather than a social website.
