Why all the fuss over Twitter? This huge social media machine is slowly but surely infiltrating every corner of our lives and, using the right strategy, anyone can make money from Twitter.
“What are you doing?” It’s hard to believe that 140 characters could start to make money, but that’s really the case. If used in the right way, Twitter is a great way to make money online. Posting with links to products and services is how it’s done. Affiliate marketers have quickly realized the power of Twitter as a marketing tool and are using it to great advantage. The idea is to find groups of people who are interested in something and see if you can find a product or service that might interest these people. Posting a link to a product within these niches is a very effective way to sell. Due to the nature of Twitter and how you use it, hard selling is not an option, a short description about the link is almost all there is room for.
As with all forms of marketing, the more people you can pitch, the better. So if you want to make money from Twitter, the key is to acquire as many followers as possible. A couple hundred, even a couple thousand is not enough, good marketers who use Twitter to make money have literally tens of thousands of followers, 40,000 is not uncommon. A post for this many people will almost certainly generate some sales.
