The Ultimate Guide to How to Earn Money on Twitter

The Ultimate Guide to How to Earn Money on Twitter

. 13 min read

Twitter is a social media platform that has been around for more than 10 years. It is a great way to connect with people and stay up to date on the latest news.

Plus, with almost 250 million monetizable daily active Twitter users worldwide, it's definitely one of the best places to make money in  2022!

This means that whatever your niche is, there are always people likely to be interested in your posts which give you the opportunity to earn money on Twitter.

Regarding how you can take your share out of this huge pie on Twitter, there are definitely many ways to earn money from Twitter. You can create sponsored tweets (influencer marketing), promote your own products or services, or start getting tips from your followers.

On the other hand, if you want to earn good money out of Twitter, the first thing you need to do is to optimize your Twitter account and increase your follower counts with the help of Circleboom Twitter and Publish.

Optimizing your Twitter accounts and growing your reach on Twitter is highly critical. Without fulfilling these two tasks, it's nearly impossible to make money with methods like product promotion, and the super follow (subscription fee) feature of Twitter.

The reason is dead simple! People need to admire and respect the impression/content that you create/share on Twitter before deciding to subscribe to your account or tip you.

In this sense, Circleboom's social media management tools have a lot to offer you. The deadly useful features of the tools include but are not limited to scheduling Twitter threads and providing in-depth Twitter analytics and follower/friend insights.

Another key feature of Circleboom Twitter is the interest cloud. Circleboom checks your followers' bios and tweets and creates super simple and helpful graphics as below:

The keywords on the graph show what your followers are most interested in and the font size is correlated with how much each keyword is specifically used.

After broadly explaining in what senses Circleboom's social media management tools can help you earn money from Twitter, it's now high time to list the best five ways that you can use to make money from Twitter:  

1. Super follows (Subscription)

2. Tips

3. Promote Your Brand’s Products

4. Use Ticketed Spaces

5. Post Sponsored Tweets (Influencer Marketing)

In the rest of the article, I'll explain in detail each method that will help you make money on Twitter.

Let's get rolling!

Best Six Methods to Make Money from Twitter

1-) Super follows

Twitter Super Follows first rolled out to some Twitter users in September 2021, so the feature is still relatively new. Twitter's version of a paid subscription allows your followers to connect with you on a more personal level via exclusive insights and content.

The Super Follows feature will be enabled for users with more than 10,000 Twitter followers. Here's an example of a Twitter account with Super Followers enabled.

Content creators on Twitter can charge Super Followers a monthly subscription fee of up to $9.99 to access exclusive, personalized content.

I'm sure it sounds cashy to get to have subscribers willing to pay and see your content on Twitter. After all, having even a few hundred subscribers corresponds to 1,000s of USD per month.

However, as previously mentioned, your Twitter account has to be "follow" and "subscription-worthy" if you want people to be your super followers.

The most direct and effective way of turning your Twitter account is an attraction center for at least 10,000 users is to optimize your account and improve your content.

When you start engaging with other users on Twitter, they usually visit your profile and see who you are and what kind of posts you share.

While doing so, people check your profile picture, bio, follower/following counts, old likes, tweets, etc. And if you want people to value your account and eventually start following you, you have to catch them at first glance.

You can check this article to see the best bio ideas to color up your Twitter profiles and grow your follower count in 2022.

On the other side, you always keep in mind the cliche (but the truth) "content is the king." Without creating and posting high-quality & share-worthy content, it's almost impossible to draw followers to your account.

Here, as a wealthy content creation tool, Circleboom Publish has a lot to offer users. With built-in tools Canva, Unsplash, and Giphy, it's super easy to create eye-catching, unique tweets and threads to attract visitors and boost your impressions and engagements.

Here, it's highly important to mention a small remark on using multimedia content on your tweets. You'll then get how much Circleboom's built-in tools (especially Canva offering you opportunities like video editing) can improve your Twitter performance.

An article published by Twitter says tweets with videos are 6x more likely to be retweeted than Tweets with photos. Plus, they are 3x more likely to get retweeted than Tweets with GIFs.

For instance, you can use the Canva tool and create excellent videos and designs with thousands of trendy templates.

Besides, Unsplash presents you with loads of professional images that you can directly use in your tweets and threads.

2-) Tips

The tips feature that Twitter rolled out in 2021 allows you to add links to select third-party payment services (like Patreon and Venmo) to your Twitter profile.

When you turn on Tips on your profile, people can support you by clicking on your Tips icon to send you money via the third-party payment services and platforms you have added.

Here is an example to show you what an account with the Tips option looks like:

You can create a Tip Jar so that friends, followers, and fans can directly support you for the content you create and share.

However, apart from methods involving activities like product promotion (i.e. via influencer marketing, I'm going to explain soon), the tips feature is mostly about how you engage with your followers and how unique/informative users find your content.

So, if you want to make money from Twitter with the tips feature, your content needs to be exclusive, informative, and open to interacting with larger audiences.

In this sense, I suggest you focus on two important points:

  • Keeping an active & updated account with consistent and regular posts
  • Posting top-notch and useful articles

Circleboom Publish is at your disposal to keep your profile evergreen and full of high-quality articles from which users can always benefit.

Firstly, I need to make this small but important remark that posting regularly and consistently leads Twitter's algorithm to favor your account. This means as you settle down a posting calendar and style for your account, Twitter will rank you higher over time.

However, it's easier said than done if you have a busy schedule. Therefore, I suggest you use a Twitter scheduler and schedule your tweets and threads in advance. This will make sure that you do not miss out on sending important tweets at the right times.

The Circleboom Publish tool is the easiest Twitter scheduler that will make sending out tweets a fun task for you. With the Circleboom publish tool, you can queue interesting articles to your Twitter account, schedule video/gif/image/text posts, and integrate several RSS feeds for automatic posting.

Secondly, Circleboom Publish is a great article curation tool that helps you gather the greatest articles to keep your audience updated with the latest topics.

You just type in the topics you're interested in and the language you want Circleboom Publish to collect top-notch articles for you. The rest is on Circleboom!

Once you let Circleboom know what you're passionate about and what you'd like to share with your followers, it lists the best articles below.

With the updated articles you can schedule on Circleboom, more and more people follow your account for more informative and high-quality articles. That is because your account will be a hub for filtered and qualified articles.

Lastly, I'd like to note that Circleboom Publish allows Twitter users to integrate multiple RSS feeds with their Twitter accounts. You can connect up to 50 RSS feeds with Cirleboom, which means they can auto-post content from at most 50 sites to their Twitter feed.

Although RSS feeds sometimes give a metallic impression to your prospective followers on Twitter, they are especially handy when you don't have much time to spend on Twitter.

With the help of RSS feeds, you can keep your account updated & active. If you want to check out how you can use Circleboom Publish's RSS feed to Twitter, you can read this article.

3-) Promote Your Brand’s Products (and Affiliate Marketing)

With more than 400 million users, Twitter is a great marketing platform if you have products to sell or a service-based business. The services or products may or may not belong to you.

In the cases where you promote products you don't own, it's called affiliate marketing. You make a commission when someone buys that product via the link you shared.

In other cases, you can create a Twitter handle that reflects your business or choose a relevant username to promote your products or services as a business owner.

In both situations, Twitter is a super lucrative place for marketing. You can post trendy & relevant threads, tweet company news, and share your latest blog posts regularly to attract online shoppers and build your following.

Nevertheless, if you want to effectively promote your own products or someone else's, there are one critical point you should focus on:

  • Knowing your buyer persona

Knowing your buyer persona is the precondition here that will determine your content's success. Without analyzing your followers in-depth, your creative or attractive content probably won't mean a thing.

Here, you should definitely benefit from the amazing analytics features that Circleboom Twitter offers. Here is a short list of what features Circleboom has to help you make more money from Twitter:

With the follower growth graphs of Circleboom Twitter, you can quickly get your daily/weekly/monthly/yearly follower statistics. Every change in your follower number will be presented in a daily change graph.

This feature is important for marketers to understand how their Twitter performance is going on.

Circleboom Twitter analyzes your friends and followers and groups them based on qualities like inactive, overactive, verified, and, most importantly, human or fake?

With the help of this feature, you can easily clean your account of fake accounts, inactive ones that drop down your engagement rates, or overactive accounts that stuff your feed with non-sense tweets.

These are all important for marketers because your prospective followers give importance to parameters like your follower/following ratio and who your followers are.

Circleboom Twitter provides the gender distribution of your followers and friends. If you're a starter marketer on Twitter, you can use this gender stat to decide what kind of products you can promote on Twitter.

Plus, you can use this info to personalize your posts and make them more suitable for your target audience.

The best time to tweet feature of Circleboom provides one of the most important methods to assess your Twitter success. Circleboom gives you the best time to tweet, so you know which days and times are best for sharing your tweets.

This feature is particularly important for marketers because a tweet on Twitter has a lifespan of roughly 18 minutes. This means you have to post your tweets at the right times. Otherwise, they'll be lost in empty tweet space.

So marketers need to know what days and times will be the best to post their tweets so that they can get the maximum benefit from each tweet.

Here, Circleboom Twitter analyzes all your followers' tweet sending times to statistically detect the best time to tweet. Subsequently, it helps you post tweets that will bring more engagement and impression rates to your account.

The math is pretty simple here! The more engagements, the more followers, and the more followers, the more potential customers for your products or services.

Exploring how you can more efficiently promote your products or services with the amazing features of Circleboom, it's time to dig into utilizing Ticketed Spaces to make money.

Let's get going!

4. Use Ticketed Spaces

Ticketed Spaces is one of the easiest ways to earn money from Twitter. Ticketed Spaces are essentially online events you can charge for and can be a profitable niche for many.

So, Ticketed spaces help generate revenue from creator-hosted spaces. In the meantime, viewers show their support by purchasing tickets for the experiences and conversations the creator has on his/her/their Twitter space.

Creators can use the ticketed space to host workshops, talks, and meet-ups with passionate fans. Twitter's global platform is perfect for hosting a paid live event. Creators can now earn money by hosting their spaces.

Nevertheless, if you want to make money by using Ticketed Spaces on Twitter, you first need to have gathered a sound & esteemed follower audience. Indeed, Twitter states you need to have at least 1,000 active followers to consider eligible for broadcasting Ticketed Spaces on Twitter.

So, you'll first build a seasoned Twitter account, and you'll get a chance to make money using Ticketed Spaces. This precondition brings us to the question of how we can achieve at least 1,000 followers and start having live Ticketed Spaces.

The two proven techniques that will bring you more followers in the short run are:

  • Following and engaging with genuine accounts

One of the most important rules about Twitter is to remember that Twitter is all about making a connection with others.

You can't just say, I'll create super catchy tweets and leave it at that. You need to follow others in your industry or niche, retweet influencers, and engage with other users by replying to mentions and comments.

Nevertheless, it may be difficult to find the right accounts to get more followers on Twitter. After all, there are millions of users!

Don't worry, though. Circleboom Twitter has a key feature called smart search that will help you find your target accounts among millions of Twitter users.

You need to enter your keyword, location, and language into the search box or submit other parameters like the number of tweets and the follower/following number.

  • Using Twitter ads

Even though organic ways of growing your reach are always better on Twitter, using paid methods can still help your account take a leap in the short run.

Using Twitter ads is comparatively more advantageous because the ROI of marketing campaigns on Twitter is much higher compared to those operated on other platforms.

Plus, CPC (cost per click) rates are significantly lower on Twitter compared to other platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn.

So, Twitter is a suitable platform to use paid ads to promote your account. Plus, it works more efficiently with higher ROI rates.

5. Post Sponsored Tweets (Influencer Marketing)

This will be the last but not the least method to earn money from Twitter. It's instead for savvy Twitter users. After having a large follower count on Twitter, you can find loads of brands that will pay you to promote their products or services.

If you want to start influencer marketing and posting sponsored tweets, it's always a good idea to check out the potential brands that you can connect with and platforms where you can showcase your accounts.

Nevertheless, before contacting brands, you should make sure that you satisfy the requirements below:

  • You post high-quality content

Content is always king. If you don't post high-quality content on Twitter, and if you don't have confidence in your content, brands don’t want to work with you.

You need to make sure that your content is unique and eye-catching. In this respect, you can use Circleboom Publish's content creation tools to create authentic and attractive content on Twitter.

  • Your follower counts should be high enough for brands

Depending on the brand collaborations you plan to have, the necessary following count varies. However, the rule of thumb says if you have a community of at least 1,000 followers that engage with your content, your Twitter account is ready to go!

Keep in mind that the amount of money you can earn money by posting sponsored tweets depends on your contract with brands. They can pay you by:

  • The number of clicks your post generates
  • Your follower count
  • The number of conversions your post generates

La Fin
