It’s not about the number of followers you have, it’s about the engagement you get on your tweets. You can have thousands of followers but if they don’t engage with your audience there’s no point in monetizing your Twitter account.
If you’re interested in earning something from Twitter, focus on the activity on your account. How do your followers and non-followers interact with what you post? If you get a high engagement, then it’s worth monetizing your account. Twitter doesn’t have a special monetization program, but there are many ways you can earn via your Twitter account.
The following are ways you can make money on Twitter;
- Affiliate Marketing
- Sponsored Tweets
- Sell and promote your product
- Reviewing products
- Generate Traffic to your blog/website
- Other ways
The best way to earn money on any social network is through affiliate marketing. The idea behind this is that you promote other people’s products and earn a commission. It’s based on revenue sharing. If you have a product and want to sell more, you can offer promoters a financial incentive through an affiliate program. They will promote the product on the platform. And if you have no product, but want to make money, then you can promote a product that you feel has value and earn an income from it as an affiliate marketer. To be successful at affiliate marketing, it’s wise to choose a niche. Choose a niche that you’re knowledgeable about and that you’re passionate about too. Don’t spam your followers with affiliate links, either. Mix them in with your regular content so that you don’t annoy your followers. Too many suspicious links can get your account suspended too.
