Make Money With Twitter

Learn How To Make Money With Twitter. This is the statement we see in a lot of places in social media – especially on Twitter. If you want people to click your links in your tweets, have the word Twitter in there and your click through rate will massively increase. Such is the interest in Twitter, on Twitter, that the name itself seems to be the biggest drawcard.

Making Big Money On Twitter

Personally, I haven’t really made any big money on Twitter. I haven’t really tried to be fair but I do know that Twitter can play a great part of an internet marketer’s tools if used correctly. I have gained followers in Twitter who have gone on to purchase products from me. Twitter does work for internet marketers – as long as it is used properly and not as the annoying spamming tool that many use it as.

75 Million Twits

I have no doubt that, out of 75 Million user accounts on Twitter, including all the celebrities, there are probably only 15 Million real users. The rest are most likely automated tweet accounts, duplicate accounts and unused user profiles that died a horrible death withing a few weeks of being established.

Of course, I don’t really know that! I am only making an educated guess.

Can You Make Money With Twitter?

The answer is Yes! You can make money with Twitter. The trick is to use it in conjunction with your other social media tools (yes, I call them tools) and remember to use them as a human. That’s right! People buy from people – not from websites or tweeted affiliate links. The personal touch is the key to making a sale and you need to build trust with your future customers. If you can’t make that effort, then you won’t even make enough sales to pay for the next Automated Twitter Tool subscribtion. πŸ˜‰

  5. Jayne Pleysier says:

    I’ve read that the key to use Twitter effectively is not to just tweet affiliate links, but actually to use your tweets to build your community and have the links you send out linking to a blog page or similar where there is no hard sell….but then use these pages to have the affiliate sale on them.

  6. I might not be first to comment but sixth is fine with me.
    This is a Classic post Sean and great content. I will certainly be following the advice.
    I will retweet this (on Twitter) as it deserves to be retweeted.
    Thanks again. : )

  14. G’day, Sean.

    I thoroughly enjoyed “The Affiliate Sanction” webinar at 3AM morning and actually didn’t go back to bed until after 5AM. So I’ve managed a couple more hours of sleep. Thanks for the mentions during the webinar. I’m glad to hear you’re “Grateful You’re Not Dead”, a sentiment shared by many. πŸ™‚

    Maybe I can put a song together for you before the “Learn and Earn” competition ends if I can find a few free hours. I’m sure I can find some humour in here somewhere. πŸ™‚

    With regard to Twitter, I retweeted bullhunter’s “The Ultimate Twitter Guide” tweet before the “Escape From Alexa” webinar ended the other day. That was Wednesday wasn’t it? I figured if I didn’t do it then, I’d forget. Senior’s Moments, you understand.

    I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort you’ve been putting into the “Learn and Earn” competition, what with the webinars and your follow-ups on the blogs and Facebook.

    All the best on the speaking presentations.

      For us being in the future you sure are keeping up and on your toes. I have added 20 points for tweeting like an early bird. Well done and maybe a song for Sean’s competition on YouTube would be great as then we could tweet your YouTube, LinkedIn it and rate it on Alexa πŸ˜‰ Oh and maybe have an affiliate program too πŸ™‚

    Hi, As I am new to twitter all of the help you are giving is valuable. Thank You.

    I have retweeted the Ultimate Twitter Guide on twitter and I am going to retweet this post too.

  16. I enjoy twitter, and even have a (slowly) growing following. And I have retweeted bullunters tweet on The Ultimate Twitter Guide on Wednesday. And it IS a great Guide, thanks Year of the Dog!

    • Jayne Pleysier says:

      One thing about Twitter is that it is the greatest spam filter in the world – if people arent happy, they can just unfollow you – gives you a good indication if what you are tweeting isnt good enough – also means you can be in control of being spammed as well with a quick click of the unfollow!

      • I noticed my followers on Twitter dropped a few even though I haven’t been really tweeted much at all. Maybe the positive energy of what I did send was too much.

        By the same token also good for the other side of the coin. Have given a few the flick as I saw some rather undesirable stuff. Maybe there is still plenty of it about just like Facebook – it’s just without the pics to go with it LOL!

    • Hi Renee
      You are going fantastically and taking action early. I have added 20 points to your tally. Well done and glad to hear you are enjoying the guide. πŸ™‚

  17. Hi Sean,

    I have RT Bullhunter’s The Ultimate Twitter Guide the other day.
    tweet tweet!

  18. Hi Sean, Hi Cherie,

    Just completed another task, have re-tweeted β€œThe Ultimate Twitter Guide” (this post)

    Thank you again for the great webinar Sean !
    Thank you Cherie for all your great work in this competition !

  19. I haven’t done twitter justice with my online presence. I actually signed up a couple of years ago and used it for a month or 2 then couldn’t actually understand the benefits. Now with The Ultimate Twitter Guide I can learn lots of new techniques.
    I RT Bullhunters Ultimate Twitter Guide on Wednesday.
    Thanks Cherie.

  20. Hi,
    I retweeted ‘The Ultimate Twitter Guide” on Thursday.
    I retweeted Escape from Alexa yesterday and tweet my days and pages everywhere I go.:))))
    Tweeting was a bit of an uncomfortable experience for me. I’m either gushing out of every pore, or cutting the air with a one-word book! Finding the middle path of 140 characters is interesting. Now there’s a thought for a competative response; a 140 character response, with relevancy and competency, to a post. (Must try it one day – maybe!)

    Hi Sean and Cherie,

    I have jusretweeted Make Money with Twitter today (for this post) and did the other one on Wed before the webinar was posted. I actually commented on this on the Ultimate Twitter Guide post, but am thinking that perhaps I put it in the wrong place (so I copied what I wrote and pasted it again here).”

    “Hi Sean and Cherie,
    I have retweeted your Following Bullhunter’s Ultimate Twitter Guide already and want to send another congrats to Lina. Grand Poohbah champion!

    Hope this makes sense.

  22. Hi Sean and Cherie,

    I had retweeted the Ultimate Guide a few days ago (God knows when – and Cherie too, I hope!)
    This is a good addition.

  28. I couldnt work out how to get the ultimate Twitter Guide. Is it an E-Book and what does it cost??
    This is a great article on Twitter and I have re-Tweeted the article.

    • I’m sure I have seen you make a comment in the internet marketing forum.

      The easiest way to get the Ultimate Twitter Guide is to login into the forum. Then click on the first link – Welcome Aboard and you will see the link to download the guide.

      There is NO cost. Isn’t that cool! It is a PDF file that you can download and save on your computer.

      If you get stuck on saving it just ask in the forum. They will help you in a jiffy. I would be happy to as well.

    • Hi Leigh
      Thank you for your twitter tweeting and I have added 10 points to your competition tally. You are able to locate the Ultimate Twitter Guide in the free forum that is currently open and the instructions are mentioned in an earlier post by Sean on this blog. Enjoy πŸ™‚

    Hey thanks for all the social media action, fantastic. I have awarded you 20 points to your score with your early tweeting. Very nice πŸ™‚

  30. Hi Cherie

    Was I to have said that I retweeted the Ultimate Twitter Guide on Twitter @ bullhunter before the webinar was posted when I made my comment at the top of the page?

  31. clem schollum says:

    Hi there- we tweeted on twitter with the title “Make money with Twitter” and i’m sad that i decided to visit with visitors instead of visiting with you and getting bigger points! darn wine, calling my name! thanks and i like saying tweets on twitter, its just fun! πŸ™‚

  32. Just wondering if this group has extended itself from Twitter and Alexa to a wine drinking, ‘wee’ dram drinking club?? What is the URL to register for this one?

  33. One thing kind of funny about making money on Twitter is I don’t think Twitter itself is making a profit. How it is they don’t with so many Twitter followers is beyond me.

  34. I retweeted the Ultimate Twitter guide on Wednesday (straight after the webinar finished). I would love to accept 20 points for retweeting that day. Thank You.

    So much to keep up with. I thought I was going ok but I’m feeling a little bamboozled today πŸ™‚

    It’s interesting how many ways I can make money from Twitter. I’m finding out how great Twitter is for online marketing, as well as keeping up with the latest happenings.

    I have recently re-tweeted the Bullhunter/Ultimate Twitter Guide including on Wednesday and I have re-tweeted, Make Money With Twitter today. Hope I’ve got it right?

  36. Hi Cherie,

    Thank you very much for allocating the 10 points for re-tweeting this post.

    Just reading Jill’s post above, wondering now if I am entitled to get 10 points as well for the other re-tweet of The Ultimate Twitter Guide? It’s been re-tweeted on the 15/07 and commented on The Ultimate Twitter Guide post (back on 5/07)….!?

    • Hi Ada
      Thank you for commenting and advising your dates of your early tweet. I have added 10 extra points on top of your score. This is where dotting the i’s is very important and following Sean’s competition instructions. Well done. πŸ™‚

  37. Great reading Sean on Make Money with Twitter. I retweeted The Ultimate Twitter Guide immediately after the webinar the other day.

  42. I wasn’t sure just which post to put this comment on but I guess Make Money on Twitter is as good as any because it’s about how to use social media and that’s just what Twitter is.

    I got one of those junk emails from Domainz today about a webinar on next Wednesday 28 July at 11am NZST so that’s just a slightly earlier start for you WA folk.

    It may be things we’ve already done but may be something different or a different perspective. Just letting you know out of interest.

    • Can’t imagine they have anything that we can’t find here. Unless it’s blackhat of course LOL. I will be interested to hear from you aftr you see it.

      • I think you are right Peter but taking a look more out of curiosity. I doubt they have the Ultimate Twitter Guide.

        Will report back anything of interest.

        • There is hardly more to add that the Ultimate Twitter Guide has not already covered. I wait with bated breath!

          • While the graphic in the heading features a Twitter tweetie bird it doesn’t mention Twitter specifically or exclusively.

            As it mentions social media in general it may well cover other forms. I will be judging the value based on the content rather than prejudge it’s worth.

  43. Excuse me but have I missed something…
    As far as I know Twitter is against sales and marketing activities and from time to time get very shirty with this type of conduct….OOPS must have dropped off for a moment.
    I love twitter and the opportunities it’s format presents, there’s gold in them there hills…
    .-= Dave W´s last blog ..India has unveiled a 35 computer prototype =-.

    • Twitter is not against sales promos per se. It does dislike it being done to the point of spamming. It is a social contact site, but it doesn’t mind reasonable promos within that. It would lose most of its tweeters if it banned sales and marketing totally

  44. Good, you have shared this cool tips here.

    As I have for thousand visitors to my twitter account, but I will try sure this tool also to increase my followers on my twitter account.

    Nice sharing!
