If you have been on Twitter very long, surely you’ve been hit with spam. Either people following you to get attention, or sending you empty direct messages after you follow them, or spamming up your tweet stream after you follow them. None of it is pleasant!
If you’re looking to make money on Twitter, I know you are interested in avoiding these pitfalls with your account. You don’t want to irritate other people and alienate them rather than engage them!
Luckily, you don’t have to.
The key to making money on Twitter without spamming is to really engage people. First of all, the best way to get someone’s attention with your Twitter account is not to follow them. I know that’s the common wisdom, but it’s pretty played out, so it’s not that effective anymore.
Rather, it’s best to be creative!
My favorite way of engaging people is to answer their niche-related questions. You can do this by going to http://search.twitter.com and typing in your niche, then a space, then a question mark. This will bring up a list of niche-related questions people have tweeted. You can then answer them, thus establishing yourself as an expert in your niche and gaining a loyal following at the same time!
This is just one tip. There are a lot more strategies that can automate parts of processes and make you a LOT of money, and they can be found in Kelly Verge’s The Tweeder Method.
It teaches you how to figure out what you should promote on Twitter – what exactly people are looking for on Twitter and how to find the people that are looking for it. It also teaches you how to locate people on Twitter who are truly in a buying mindset, how to connect with them in a way that is helpful and welcome, and lastly – THE BEST PART! – how to automate it entirely using only free tools. There was even a video update recently showing the new “Tweeder 2.0″ method that Kelly is using now.
I use The Tweeder Method myself. To give you an idea – I spent about a day setting it up (six or seven hours), and now – with the new 2.0 improvements – ZERO time maintaining it! I have 7 accounts, or “modules” as Kelly calls them. I earn between $400 and $500 a month, almost entirely hands-free. I am currently in the process of scaling my operation. But, even at this level, it basically pays for all my article writing each month, and that’s awesome!
