Make Money on Twitter

Make money on twitter is a useful way to earn some extra cash if you enjoy tweeting and spending time there. This guide will show you how to earn from twitter. First we shall begin with a quick guide to what it is and in the spirit of it this is 140 characters which is the maximum word and character allowance for each tweet:

Each tweet message to followers in this social networking micro blogging site should be less than 140 characters with # tags and short urls.

So as you can see quite a lot of information can concisely be sent to your followers and those who are searching for specific keywords. Just like a well written web page you should try to keep interest and make it read well whilst adding your keywords. This is the key: it is a quick and free newsletter, text or blog service. It is ideal for those selling a product, those with websites where you can add your url and even for those wanting to use their affiliate links such as Word Linx. It is so simple to use at home on your PC, laptop, tablet, ipad or ipod or out and about on your iphone.

Our first recommendation is to use a service that rewards you for shortening your urls. Most urls will take up a large proportion of your characters so using a social media url shortening service will release these precious characters whilst rewarding you with cash or advertising.

I am selling at eBay due to ill health. This is a rare chance to buy a 10 character domain name that has been live since 2002 and the current bid is low.

I can also transfer the live files on the ftp hosting upon request and the host company provides great support if needed.

Thank you all for the fun we have had over the years, especially running the Born To Loaf competitions where I have given away cash prizes and branded merchandise. It would be great if a Borntoloafer took over the site.

Best wishes to you all.

How Does Twitter Make Money

How does twitter make money is a common question and one borntoloaf will try to answer based on our experience. Most of their revenue seems to come from advertising from their top tweets which they send out to those who subscribe to this feed and from the top search results. It costs nothing to users though and adverts usually have a colour highlighting that it is a promotion. Many top results and toptweets are those that are of current interest.

Earn From Twitter

You too can earn from advertising your own products in your tweets. would advise spending time reading other people's tweets and enjoying the experience before diving straight in and advertising your products. Send general tweets out on a range of subjects and interests, some serious and some humorous. Perhaps tweet about what is in the news or give opinions about TV or films. Try to build up a core of followers and follow people whose tweets interest you. Most return the follow. Some people follow thousands of tweeters but in our opinion cannot possibly read each of their tweets in turn and perhaps just follow people to get them in turn to read their messages. We would rather follow a smaller number of tweeters and enjoy reading their tweets. They help you find followers with their suggested users' button that bases suggested followers on shared interests based on your tweets and people you follow.

After a few weeks would be the time to start using this advice and try one or two tweets advertising your service, webpage or product. But please do not spam tweet or you will soon lose followers.

Make use of the hash tag # for keywords if you have any characters left after your message because this will help your tweet be indexed into their search engine more efficiently.

A retweet is where someone likes your message and sends it to his or her followers, so writing on a range of topics can result in your messages being sent to thousands of people who may in turn follow you or visit your profile. Many or the retweets I have read tend to be funny and or have amusing photos attached. So write an interesting profile and include your website, though I think hits from them is a no follow so may not help with search engine optimisation. However don't worry about SEO too much: it is supposed to be fun and the hit is still a real visitor who may enjoy reading your website, use your service, return, subscribe to your newsletter, recommend you to other tweeters, etc.

Reading the trending now section shows you what topics or themes fellow tweeters are interesting in as well as being a good news service.

The mentions sections will show you if people are discussing you and your service and is a great way to get feedback.

There are a few disadvantages, the first being that it is very addictive and can be a distraction to your normal work. I love it and could spend hours on it to the detriment of my other work. Another disadvantage is that it allows spammers to contact you directly. I get round this by turning off the direct message facility and reporting spam messages that do get through. I then block that person's account. You can generally tell that a spammer is using them to send spam by clicking on their name, seeing their account and having a quick flick on their tweets. This is usually a large number, all of the same message to different users. They soon closes these accounts when you report spam. But please do not let these cons put you off: it is a great marketing tool when used correctly.

It is also possible to earn by signing up to a service that will use your account to send advertising messages to your followers. You then get a set fee. Borntoloaf do no use such services though will be happy to add their details here. The disadvantages of using such a service is that you would have to give out your username and password so that the service can access your account and that your followers may get fed up receiving advertising messages which they may think comes from you and unfollow you.

Make money using twitter is a fun way to make extra alongside your usual or additional work. Follow their etiquette and enjoy the experience and you will soon earn in many ways.
