I am sure you have heard many stories of how some people are making money on twitter, or all this different ways you can make money with twitter. Let me be honest, all of these methods come down to one simple way, using your twitter (whether its a link in your twitts or using your profile background to show ads) to advertise product/service. It is the one and only proven way to make money on twitter.
The effectiveness of these methods depend on the number of followers you have. The more followers you have, the better your chance are for making money. Advertisers are more likely to use those with more followers.
Ok, enough said already, here are two established advertising companies you can use to show ads on your twitter and make money. these two website have been built for tweeter advertising, so you wont have any problem getting around and getting started right away. good luck.
With Twittad You basically sell your background space for a predetermined amount of time, which you specify. Like for 7 days, 15 days, 1 Month, and so on. You make a profile for it and put it up for sale. Advertiser will buy your space and use it for whatever days to show their ads, and you get paid. The more followers you have, the more chances you have for getting your background sold.
Magpie is a little different in the way it works. They find advertiser (in their network) who have product/service that match the topics of your tweets, and place their ads(magpie-tweet) next to your tweet. You can earn money by using different kind of ads like, Pay-per-Click, Pay-per-Sale, Pay-per-Lead and Pay-per-View. You choose if you want magpie-tweet in every tweets or one magpie-tweet per 200 tweets.
The good thing is that they will let you pre-approve all magpie-tweets, so that you’re not showing ads you don’t want to show. Each time the ad campaign is used in your tweets, you get paid. So basically you don’t have to do anything but tweet as usual, or if you want to make more money, you can use popular keywords in your tweets that you know will get you better paying ads.
