Default Twitter: How To Increase Your Followers And Make Money With Twitter

The web is fast becoming a center for social activities. Instead of just looking for information, advice and the latest news in the more conventional ways the internet has to offer, people are relying on their friends and acquaintances.

This is now easier and faster than ever before, thanks to innovative websites such as Facebook and Twitter. The latter is particularly popular since you can get all the latest updates and information directly to your mobile phone, no matter the hour of the day or your location.

This innovative communication system is therefore an excellent source of revenue in many ways, as long as you put a little effort in the venture you are undertaking and use some of your own creativity.

This article discusses some useful tips to help you succeed and make money with Twitter.
How Twitter Works

In order to take advantage of the opportunities the social site has to offer, you should know first how it works.

It is quite simple – you sign up for an account, which allows you to post short messages (tweets) to people who have agreed to receive them (your followers). This in turn provides you with a totally free way to share your views and advertise your offer in various ways. If you do it right, you can make some healthy profits out of it.

How To Increase Your Twitter Followers Fast


The first step towards twitter success is to get as much people as possible to become your followers. This is especially important if you are going to market various products and you want them to get massive exposure.

There is no point in posting your tweets to only a few people, unless they are raving fans or dedicated followers.

Here are 4 effective ways to get more people to follow you on Twitter.

1) Spread The Word To All Your Contacts.

Collaborate with your friends and acquaintances to spread the word about each other’s Twitter accounts. This is a great option if you are an active member of an internet community that is at the same time a distinctive target group.

Let’s say you have a music blog with regular readers. If you are constantly writing in various dedicated online forums, you can ask fellow members to become your Twitter followers.

If you have a list of subscribers, you could invite them to receive your messages. If you have a website, you could post a note informing visitors about your Twitter account.

2) Provide A Specific Free Service Using Twitter.

This can be an alert for sports games scores, for shopping discounts or the latest gossip and news in a specific area.

It is best to choose a bit broader subject and have an appropriate username presenting your service. You have to put some extra effort in this as it requires regular work, but you can readily do it from your home or office.

3) Add Your Twitter Account In Twitter Directories.

You can increase your chances of getting targeted followers by adding your Twitter account in the appropriate categories of Twitter directories.

Some of the most popular ones include:

All it takes is a couple of minutes to add yourself into each Twitter directory; and you only need to do it one time to get permanent exposure.

4) Follow Other People In Your Niche Or Field Of Interest.

When you follow Twitterers in your niche, they tend to follow you back. It’s the law of reciprocity at work.

Where do you find them? Browse through the Twitter directories above and follow people who are in the same field, or have the same interests, as yours.

How To Make Money With Twitter

Despite the way in which you have attracted Twitter followers, you have to make your tweets informative and interesting in order to make people read them.

Now it is easier than ever before to make money with Twitter. Through the Sponsored Tweets service, you can present a marketing offer to potential clients to advertise their products in your tweets. This is particularly convenient since you do not have to look for customers elsewhere and spend money and time advertising your own offers.

However, there is an important point you have to pay attention to. You would not want your followers to stop reading your messages just because they are overwhelmed with advertisements. A good way to avoid this is to continue sending the usual information people expect from you and add an end line with the marketing message.

Experienced social marketers recommend sending a promotional tweet only after every 5 to 7 non-self-serving tweets. After you’ve built trust and rapport by sending helpful or interesting tweets, you might increase the number of times you advertise.

But always remember to do it subtly. One way to do that is to point them to a webpage where they can read an informative article or watch a video that “pre-sells” your product. You may also give them a free report branded with your own offers. Avoid blatant promotions and you will get more sales.


Generally, the preliminary creation of a free service will aid you in making money with Twitter, as it will allow you to incorporate advertisements more easily.

For example, if you are sending information on electronic gadgets discount stores, you can have these retailers pay you for including their address in your tweets.

All these advertising tips to make money from Twitter can be successfully adopted with the right timing and strategy. It costs you nothing but your profits could skyrocket.
