How I Make Money On Twitter

Can you really make money on Twitter? Yes. How? Ok, let me share with you my experience.

Making money on Twitter, just like making money on blogging, is not a get-rich-quick scheme. You also need a little patience. But with Twitter, you don’t need to pay for hosting bills. You only need internet connection. Very minimal money-out with a huge money-in potential.

Ok, here’s what I did which you can follow if you want.

1. Build a huge Twitter follower. I already blogged about it here. I did it religiously every night. After 30 days, I already have 10,000+ followers.

2. Sign up for an affiliate account. There are many affiliate sites out there. I personally use and recommend Paydotcom.

3. Search for a product that are directly targetted to your Twitter followers. Paydotcom has lots of affiliate products you can choose from. Go on and navigate the marketplace.

4. Schedule a daily tweet using futuretweets.com. Tweet your affiliate links at times where most of your followers are online. In my case, I have a daily scheduled tweet at 11:30 PM (Philippine Time) because most of my followers are in the US. I promote 5 products from Paydotcom, tweeted while I’m sleeping. 😀

5. Wait for the earnings to come. Some of your followers will click it. Some of your followers will buy the product. And if they buy, you earn. This is just a numbers game, the more followers, the more chances of having a sale.

After 2 weeks of tweeting those affiliate links, I already earned $230. Proof? Here’s a screenshot of my Paydotcom account (click the image for a better view):

I’m getting a sale at least 1 every 2 days. Not that big, but more than enough to pay my monthly hosting bills for this blog.

Follow me on twitter for more Twitter tips. 😉

My lawyer in me told me to write this:

Disclaimer: All these are based on my experience alone. I don’t guarantee the same results with you. If you try it and it doesn’t work for you, don’t sue me, ok? Don’t ever try it if you plan to sue me if it doesn’t work. All I can say is that it works for me and I don’t know if it will work for you too. I hope it will. Good luck!

  27. Yah this is introduction to new age of affilate marketing ……

  28. Thanks for helpful information.

  29. Here is another website where you earn money just by socializing.

    You get paid just by inviting your friends to join. This is just like friendster, but this site pays you for using it.

    Click this link


    That is my referral link, if you sign up under my referral. I can teach you how you can get yourself a lot of referrals as well.

    This is a very nice get paid to socialize website, since the Philippines is the Friendster capital of the world. So why not take this opportunity.

    Watch the video so you can understand more about this website.

    Ok thanks

  30. Your guidelines above encourage me to put more effort on monetizing my twitter account. Thank you so much!

  31. hello marhgil! thank you for sharing. however, i can’t seem to sign up to PDC using the link on this site and even on the main website itself. i’ve been trying for since 9am this morning until now (1:24pm already)… i’ve cleared my cache, cookies and restarted my laptop a couple of times and even used 2 different PCs and still no luck. what do you think is the problem? thanks for your prompt reply.


  32. Some of us may think that all these ‘monetizing’ options can actually turn twitter into an ‘evil’ place and slowly reduce its value. But let’s face it, if you aren’t fully utilizing all the areas of twitter today, somebody else will – tomorrow. But of course you should set a ‘limit’ on how many ‘such tweets’’ you are going to do on a day, so that your followers still consider you as a valuable contact rather than a commercial junkie.

  33. Thanks for this. Been looking for an honest way to earn thru my twitter. 🙂 I just got my paydotcom thing up, and I really can’t figure out how to get it working on my twitter. help.

  34. I have tried applying as an affiliate in Paydotcom but unfortunately they are not accepting affiliates from the Philippines. Too bad!

  35. Anong nangyari sa paydotcom?
