Twitter users can earn money by posting sponsored tweets. There are three popular sites that currently offer tweeters payment for posting ad campaigns. Here are options to make money on Twitter.
Make Money On Twitter With Magpie
Magpie is an ad network that pays tweeters to post campaigns (also called “magpie tweets”) among their tweets. Magpie-tweets are carefully matched to the topic that a Twitterer posts on his Twitter account (e.g. cooking, gardening, business). The frequency of posting depends on the ratio selected by the tweeter. By default, a magpie-tweet is posted every ten tweets. A magpie account holder, however, may opt to change this ratio. The minimum ratio is one magpie-tweet every 5 tweets.
To earn from Magpie, one must have a Twitter account and a PayPal account. Earnings are based on three compensation models: Pay-per-Sale, Pay-per-Lead, Pay-per-Click, and Pay-per-View. The minimum payout at Magpie is $50.
Magpie is currently the leading advertising network for Twitter with over 10 million Twitterers signed up at their program.
Make Money On Twitter With Sponsored Tweets
Sponsored Tweets is an advertising platform that connects advertisers with tweeters. Advertisers create sponsored conversations on Twitter and make offers to qualified tweeters. Tweeters earn money by writing tweets about the campaign and posting the required link.
To earn from Sponsored Tweets, one’s Twitter account must be at least 60 days old, have at least 50 followers, and contain at least 100 status updates.
Sponsored Tweets pays via PayPal and the minimum payout is $50. Sponsored Tweets is managed by Izea — the same company that manages Social Spark, Loud Launch, and Pay Per Post.
Make Money On Twitter With Twivert
Anyone who has a Twitter account and a PayPal account can sign up for Twivert.
At Twivert, an advertiser starts a campaign by creating a new tweet message and selecting a time slot between when the ad has to be posted. The advertiser also allocates an amount for the campaign and has the option to limit the number of impressions per day.
Twitterers have the option to limit the number of sponsored tweets per day and to select time slots when these campaigns should appear on their Twitter account. This is done via the auto-tweets feature where CPC ads are automatically posted on behalf of the Twitterer. Another option would be to pre-approve ads before they are tweeted.
Twitterers earn every time there is a genuine click on the ad. Once the earnings reach $30, a payout can be requested and received via PayPal.
All three advertising networks – Magpie, Sponsored Tweets, and Twivert – offer an affiliate program. Twitterers can send out unique referral links and earn more when their referrals get paid.
