Update On Sponsored Tweets As To It’s Money Making Potential

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed but both my commenting, on other peoples blogs, as well as my posting frequency has decreased dramatically. Unfortunately my time has been required elsewhere, in the real world, as I have to see to family and business commitments. Hopefully things will quieten down soon and my online life will return to normal.

Anyway, in my last post I promised an update on how Sponsored Tweets can make you money and seeing as how this is going to be a short post I reckon I could squeeze it in.

The question you would all like to know is does Sponsored Tweets generate money for it’s members. The answer is yes! The amount depends on several factors, mainly the amount of followers you have and the amount of people you can entice to sign up under you.

As the amount of people following me is rather minuscule I’ve only had one offer netting me a whole buck. I’ve also earned another dollar from those you joined under me. As I earn 10 cents for every task they’ve received that means that several of them have had more than one task.

I don’t expect to retire on the income received from sponsored tweets I’m confident that the yearly income added to my other money spinners will make it all worth while. If I can increase my followers and increase the amount of people joining under my link I’m sure I could generate a couple of hundred dollars a year. Sure it’s not all that much, but come Christmas it will come in handy.

  1. Congrats man, good to see you earning from another source; it all adds up.

    I’ll return to sign up under you if I decide t use it. :)

    1. Thanks Dennis, and what’s the idea of teasing me like that? :wink_ee:

      1. Yep just a big tease I am. I figured though that it might go smoother if I signed up to twitter first. :laugh_tb:

  2. I have sign up at sponsored tweets very long ago, but till now I am not able to make any money, I am not getting any offers from advertisers and also not getting much referral.

    1. It all takes time Chandan. Just keep promoting it explaining to people why they should join and you’re bound to get a referral or two.

  3. ahh, making money on Twitter through sponsored tweets. I’ve heard about this several months ago. I also noticed that almost all of the people following me on Twitter are into the money making business. I’m assuming that if anyone wants to make a ton of money out of this, one will need to download an application that enables one to 1) bulk follow/unfollow people and 2) generate automatic tweets. One also needs to find a cost effective way to promote one’s twitter account. That’s just what I’ve learned. =)

  4. Twitter:
    I might have signed up under you, but I’m not sure though, as I can’t remember if I’ve had my SPTW account for longer, but I started using it after reading your last post about it and I’ve made $3.49 on 3 tweets in two weeks. It’s not big money, but it works, so people might as well sign up using your link above :)

    1. Nope, you definitely didn’t sign up under me Klaus, but at least I gave you the incentive to use their service. :drunk_tb:

  5. It’s good to know that you’re making buck out of Sponsored Tweets. I’ve been part of it since their early days, that’s when they still don’t have much members but until now, I still can’t find any revenue earning potential out of it. Maybe it was just me.
    .-= Mathdelane @Software Critics´s last blog ..Virus Alert: Facebook Password Reset Confirmation Support Message Attachments =-.

    1. Don’t just wait for them to send tweets your way Mathdelane, try to get others to sign up under you as you get 10c for every tweet they get. You will also be doing them a favor as they will have the chance to earn some extra cash.

  6. I’ve heard about sponsored tweets before. But I haven’t got too many followers on Twitter so I haven’t really given this much thought.

    1. Even though you may not have many followers is no reason not to promote it as you can still earn from those who sign up under you.

  7. Twitter:
    Actually, I have noticed you’ve slowed down, and I knew it was because of other stuff in the real world; same with me lately.

    As for the money you’re making with sponsored posts, I’m betting your performance is indicative of how most people are doing with it.
    .-= Mitch´s last blog ..Sunday Question: When Is There Too Much Free Speech? =-.

    1. Perhaps Mitch, or maybe it’s more to do with how actively people search for sponsored posts and how low, dollar wise, they are willing to go when accepting tasks.

  8. I’ve been using Twitter less and less. You guys are using it more and more lately? Also, making a couple hundred a year for something like that isn’t bad at all. It can help pay for a vacation that motivates you to work more, which will make you more money. Sooo, that few hundred indirectly makes you more!

    1. Hi Anthony, welcome to Wassupblog. I hope you become a regular :grin1_ee:

      The way I see it is if you have several of these type of money making ventures going and they all earn you a couple of hundred dollars a year it could add up to thousands of dollars, and that’s nothing to sneeze at.
      .-= Sire´s last blog ..How The Things I Like Can Make Me Money =-.

      1. I agree. Slow and steady wins the race.

  9. >’m not sure if anyone has noticed but both my commenting, on other peoples blogs, as well as my posting frequency has decreased dramatically.

    Hey, I can relate. There are times I comment and blog a lot and times I just don’t get to it.

    1. I know exactly how it is Ned as I’m in exactly the same boat. Sometimes outside forces take you away from your online life and that is to be expected. As long as you and yours are well, that’s all we can ask for,

  10. Signed up for Sponsored Tweets like 2 months ago and till date I’ve only made a dollar. lol. I’d have to increase my number of followers and tweets/retweets to get more advert slots. I would have gone the automated route but then I’ll just end up again with tons of spammy followers.

    1. I’ve made a bit more since this post. Like all things it takes time. At least you’re a member, that’s a good start.
