As much as it’s called X now it’s still Twitter in my heart okay!
How to Make Money on Twitter:
1. Sponsorships and Collaborations
One of the ways to make money on twitter is through sponsorships and brand collaborations. If you have a decent following, brands can pay to promote their products or services on your Twitter account. To attract sponsors you need to have a good Twitter profile as well as grow your audience and engage with your followers. It’s the only way chicho.
2. Tip Jar
Another option to make money on Twitter is by the using the Tip Jar feature. This feature allows your followers to tip you (a.k.a show appreciation) using platforms like PayPal, Venmo or Cash App.
Ya I know you probably *iffed by the idea of people donating money, but don’t be. At the end of the day you’re posting, and providing your time for people.
A tip from a tip jar is just a reward for your time and effort. Also, you’d be surprised how many people do this, every heard of Patreon or that little “buy me a coffee” at the end of newsletters. Yup. Yup. See that’s what I’m telling you.
3. Subscriptions and Exclusive Content
If you have a decent following on Twitter, offering a monthly subscription can be a great way to make some side cash. By using features like Super Follows you can provide value to your subscribers while earning decent income. Remember you have control over setting the subscription price and what type of bonus content and interactions you want to provide.
4. Twitter Spaces and Live Streams
You can also monetize your Twitter account with Twitter Spaces and Live Streams.
These platforms allow you to host events, where you can either charge for tickets or offer content to your subscribers. To monetize these features, it’s important to have a loyal following while providing quality content.
5. Twitter Ads and Amplify Publisher Program
Another way to make “fat stacks” on Twitter is through the Twitter Ads and the Amplify Publisher Program.
Twitter Ads and the Amplify Publisher Program allow you to make money by promoting sponsored content on your Twitter profile.
6. Super Follows
With Super Follows on Twitter you have the option to make money by offering exclusive content and interactive experiences. Oh ya! All in secret insider content. You have control over setting the price for access to this bonus content and the types of interactions that will be available.
7. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is another way to make money on Twitter. By promoting affiliate products or services to your followers you can earn a commission for every sale generated made through your link.
I’ve seen this as a common monetization method in many social media platforms.
8. Sponsored Tweets
Sponsored tweets are another way to monetize your twitter. Brands will get together with you to promote their products or services through sponsored tweets, on your account.
9. Use Ticketed Spaces
Twitters feature called “Ticketed Spaces” allows you to monetize your Twitter account by charging for access, to your events.
10. Grow Your Email List
Expanding your email list is an option that’s often overlooked to make money on Twitter.
Get this. You can leverage your Twitter presence to drive traffic towards your blog or website and gather email addresses. This helps you grow your subscribers list in the long term.
11. Send Traffic from Twitter to Your Blog or Website
If you have a blog or website you can use your Twitter platform to promote and drive traffic towards your content, and then monetize on your blog normally.
