Twitter is a great tool for marketing, especially if you know the ins and outs to maximizing it for your own benefit.

Your Twitter account is a valuable asset to you and the more value it adds to your brand the better. That being said, it’s important that you know how to get the most value from your Twitter account and keep it maintained so it will retain value.
Keep reading to learn how to make money from your Twitter account, but first let’s go over the pitfalls that can prevent you from getting the best out of it.
Pitfalls to avoid when using Twitter to make money
1) Being pushy and salesy: Don’t come off as pushy. A lot of marketers have made this mistake before and have thought it was just a normal thing. If they were to ask themselves how many followers they’ve gained by being pushy, I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t get too many by the end of it.
2) Not creating valuable content: Be sure to create valuable content for your followers to read. It doesn’t have to be your tweets (or videos or photo-shoots) that you promote as there are lots of services you can use where you can promote content as a whole.
It can be as simple as blogging, using a blog commenting platform, uploading YouTube videos, etc. Just make sure that the content is worth reading and worth sharing.
3) Not making it crystal clear for your followers: Put enough thought into how you want people to know about your Twitter account. Put effort into how you want people to get information about it, rather than just posting a link, and not explaining why they should follow you.
4) Paying to increase your numbers: This will not give any real value to your brand and will cause you to lose out on activity that is free instead of paying for it. While this can be tempting, you should never pay for followers. It’s also not a good idea to buy your own followers as many people will know about it and you will lose credibility in the end.
5) Not adding value to your followers: If you’re not promoting a valuable resource, then no one will pay attention to you. Be sure to add value to your followers each and every day.
Main ways of making money from Twitter
There are lots of different ways you can make money from Twitter, but I’ll only go over the three main ways here. You can get paid for endorsements, write blog posts that are promoted on your Twitter account, or get paid by third party companies for promoting them on your Twitter account (in a tweet).
1) Paid Endorsements: The easiest way to make money from Twitter is by getting paid to endorse a product or service in either a tweet or in your bio. You can get paid for tweeting about products that you use and love. If it’s something you truly feel reflects your style and interests, then you’ll be able to write about it in a genuine way.
The key to this is to not go on Twitter and simply put up a tweet about the product, but think about the kind of person you are and what kind of tweets you would be able to write about the product. In other words, you shouldn’t just be pushing products. You shouldn’t be tweeting just for the sake of tweeting. You should use it as a way to keep your followers informed that there are new products or services available in your niche; this will also help you in building up your brand image.
2) Blog Posts: Another way of making money from Twitter is by promoting blog posts that are published on your account. You can do this by including the blog link in a tweet or just by mentioning it again in your bio (where there is more room for the link). Some of the bigger blogs pay for promotion, so if you can write a quality post, then they will read it and may promote it.
This can be a very easy way to make money on Twitter while at the same time creating a niche for your account. You can establish yourself as an expert in your field by writing in-depth articles on topics that are related to your niche. This can be a very rewarding experience, especially if you gain popularity and start to see numbers increasing.
3) Promoting third party companies on Twitter: The third way of making money from Twitter is by promoting a third party company in a tweet or in your bio. If you’re not already doing this already then you should be, because I’m sure you don’t want to miss out on this one of the most effective ways of making money from Twitter.
This method is very easy to get started with as you just follow the instructions from the third party company to promote their products. Once you start promoting other companies on Twitter, you may be surprised at how much money is coming in for yourself. I’m sure that if you’re using Twitter to market yourself, then you’re going to make a lot of money with this approach too.
These are some of the most effective ways you can make money from your Twitter account. If you’re just starting out with your Twitter account then it’s worth considering how you can use it to gain value from a business perspective. Keep these tips in mind and I’m sure you’ll start seeing success soon!
