Seeing how it’s been a little over a month since my post on mylikes I thought it was about time I did an update. The post that introduced my readers to a way to monetize Twitter was titled How The Things I Like Can Make Me Money, explained how it all worked.that post included a widget that could be used in your sidebar thereby allowing more exposure to your ‘likes’ which would in turn increase your potential for earning money.
Even though I haven’t made proper use of the widget by placing it in the sidebar I still managed to earn $12 in the short time I’ve been using mylikes, and I haven’t even been tweeting my ‘likes’ every day. Those that I have tweeted, a grand total of 24, means that I was earning about 50 cents a tweet. Considering I’ve only got about 500 followers I reckon that’s pretty good.
I know that some people will not join because they are afraid that their followers may see these ‘sponsored’ tweets as a form of spam, and to those people I assure you as long as you only tweet products or services that you feel could be of value to your followers I don’t think you will have a problem.
Something else you should consider is that you can only tweet a mylikes offer once a day and if you’re someone who tweets a lot I doubt very much that anyone will hold one tweet against you. That plus the fact that all tweets will have a ‘#ad’ tag alongside it showing your followers that the tweet is actually an ad, and if they click on it then they must have an interest in what is being offered.
One last thing, I can safely say that since using mylikes I’m pretty sure I haven’t lost a follower, and so I give mylikes the thumbs up.
