Make Money With Twitter Using Sponsored Tweets

People who work online knows there are unlimited ways of making online money.  Specially, when we spend time on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, most of the people call it a time waster, but honestly it’s a large chunk of money you are sitting in. In this post, I’m going to talk about you can make money using Twitter.  Before, I move ahead with this, there are certain things which you should know:

  • You need to have a professional profile
  • Profile with complete details
  • Have decent/good number of followers
  • Your followers should be real human and not bots.
So by now, I assume you have a decent Twitter profile with decent no. of followers and you are all set to start making money from twitter. Here is a web service call Sponsored tweets which is from a reputed brand call Izea innovation. The idea behind Sponsored tweets is simple, it’s a market place where advertisers can buy tweets from your Twitter account. In simple word, if you have a Twitter account and you enrolled for Sponsored tweets program, you can set a price/tweet which will be an ad tweet like:

And if advertiser finds your site interesting, he can buy tweets from your profile. Personally, it’s one of the unique concept at this time and it’s working great for people with good twitter profile and followers.

SponsoredTweets is a money making program for Twitter users, who can easily get paid by tweeting a single tweet. You can get paid anything between , 1-500$ for single tweets. You can set your own price for Your tweets.

The most common concern right now must be is privacy and control. Any ad tweet via sponsored tweet will go live from your Twitter account only after your approval. Also, every such tweets will have hash tag #ad or #sponsored which will help your followers to distinguish between a normal tweet and a sponsored tweet.

Personally, I don’t see any harm in using your twitter profile as an ad platform until you Tweeting about any such service which is relevant. As I mentioned above, to make most out of sponsored tweets program, you need to have a strong Twitter profile and don’t forget to complete your profile on Sponsored tweet website.

Payment mode for sponsored tweets is Paypal and minimum Payout is $50. You can avoid the hassle of Email sign up and login directly using your twitter account. Once you have authorize your Twitter account to access Sponsored tweets program. Also to avoid spam twitter account, they made couple of rules for payout and they are:

  • Twitter account should be 60 days old and should be active.
  • Should have 50 followers and 100 status updates.
  • Minimum withdraw amount is $50.
The way I see, any normal Twitter user who is active on twitter fulfill all the criteria. These rules are useful for advertisers to lose their money on spam twitter account.

The idea behind is Twitter is one best way to make anything viral, and using this service I don’t see any harm. Since you have full control over accepting and rejecting ads. In case, if you are not in mood to make money by tweeting ads, you can also use their referral system to make money.


Now, one of the common problem faced by small publishers is lack of advertisers but here you can look for open opportunities and apply for it, chances of getting approval is fast as suggested offers are shown based on your Twitter profile value.

If you have a twitter account and you are thinking of a way to make money, sponsored tweets is a nice place to start with. You can simply sign up, set your /tweet price and set to be notified via Email or DM, and you never know when you get an offer that you can’t refuse. An alternative program is Buysellads Sponsored tweet program but unlike Sponsored tweets, it’s not a dedicated Make money twitter program but if you are already using BuySellAds on your blog to show ads, you might like to enroll for their sponsored tweets program.

    There is condition that to be visible to advertisers and to receive offers twitter account at least 2 months old and having at least 100 followers.

  8. Paolo Volpi says

    I have both a website and a Twitter account. I heard that a website is not necessary to monetize your Twitter and Sponsored Tweets account, as long as you have an account.
    Except you have to copy and paste code. Does anybody know where that goes? That’s my stumbling block when it comes to Sponsored Tweets.

  9. Amandeep Singh says
