Making Money With Twitter

I have been tweeting for quite some time now so I recently signed up and started testing Sponsored Tweets as a method do generate additional revenue. So far, I've been very pleased with this service. So...

What is Sponsored Tweets?
Sponsored Tweets is an advertising platform used by advertisers to get their message out through Twitter. Faithful Tweeters give product endorsements in exchange for a set price. The minimum acceptable price is determined by the Tweeter. However, the advertisers choose who they want to tweet their message based on the Tweeters popularity (number of followers) and passion (what tags they enter when they sign up).

How Does Sponsored Tweets Work?

Once you've signed up for an account, you will begin receiving offers from advertisers through direct messages in your Twitter account. After viewing the offer and the landing page you are linking to, you decide whether to accept or decline it. Some offers are pre-written tweets and some offers require you to create the tweet. If it's pre-written and you decide to accept the offer, just click the button that says, "tweet this" and the post will be tweeted. If you create your own post, it will have to be approved by the advertiser prior to being tweeted; but once it's approved, it will be tweeted through the platform without you having to do anything additional.

After the tweet is posted, your payment will be credited to your account. In my experience, it only takes a few minutes for this to happen. You can withdraw your once you reach the $50 minimum payout requirement. Payment will be through your PayPal account.

Is Sponsored Tweets Too Good to be True?

I don't believe that it is. So far Sponsored Tweets has proven to be a great way for anyone who already consistently uses Twitter to generate income. It's simple, it's free to join, and it doesn't take a lot of your time. The one concern I've heard from people is that some Tweeters are afraid they may lose followers if they link to a sponsored ad. However, the company requires disclosure in each tweet. Therefore, whoever links within a sponsored ad will know it's an ad. Additionally, since you have the ability to accept and decline the ads, you control what message is going to your followers--don't post an ad that would not be acceptable to your followers or run contrary to your overall message. Based on my experience with this service, I recommend Sponsored Tweets as a method of income generating.
