4 practical ways To Make Money On Twitter

When you search for “how to make money online” in Google, several results come up. You may get confused since there is a broad range of ideas and tips on how to earn money in online environments. Let’s narrow it down to Twitter as a money-making platform.

Twitter is a popular social networking platform used by businesses and individuals to send short messages to their followers. Before starting to monetize your Twitter account, check if your business or field of activity is a candidate for this platform. Then begin your job by having an appealing bio description, profile photo, well-defined niche or niches, and a large follower count just like other social networks. Engagement on your tweets is also very important because you are more likely to sell your items or services or receive advertisement requests from businesses or brands if you have consistent likes, comments, retweets, and, in short, a quality presence.

Afterward, you can start your money-making journey on Twitter by taking smart steps gradually. Your strategy depends on whether you want to sell your own products or services or be an affiliate marketer or use your account as a traffic generator to your main website. See the below overview to figure out what you need to do.

  • Sell your products or services

You can make self-promotional tweets to encourage potential customers to buy from you and increase your visibility day by day. But do not forget to include other types of tweets from time to time to humanize your profile and avoid driving your followers away. Post tweets that aim to encourage, entertain or inspire your audience from time to time in order to keep them interested and give them a reason to listen. Make sure your timeline conveys your business and product expertise while still being helpful to your followers.

As an example, I can mention some people who use their Twitter account to get more bids for their handmade stuff available on eBay and Etsy. They broadcast their product by making use of the relevant link along with best-suited hashtags and a short description of the craft in a tweet to direct their fan to the page on eBay and Etsy and generate more leads.

Another example is when someone owns a website, offers a service or product and uses Twitter as a traffic generation tool. The link can be used both in Twitter bio and in tweets. Given Twitter’s high domain authority, every click on their website link contributes to the higher rank in Google’s search results page. What is more, they increase the chances of making sales and finding more prospects.

It is also to your advantage to ask influencers who are interested or expert in your field of activity to put your name out there and so maximize your online reach.

  • Make money with affiliate marketing

You should put a lot of time and effort if you aspire to be a successful affiliate marketer. It can be very profitable if you choose the right niche and have already reached a good engagement on your account.

In case you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, I can explain it to you in simple terms. It is sharing the link of a particular product or service of a certain vendor that fits your niche and get a part of the revenue generated if someone clicks on the link and purchase that product or service. This link is specific to you only and easily trackable.
