I cover a lot of different ways people are making money off Twitter, but I haven’t even scratched the surface. I just finished reading through a new book from the authors over at Geekpreneur.com, called “99 Ways to Making Money Using Twitter“. One might think, a book covering 99 different ways to make money, would rush each topic and get stale. However, book is 355 pages, but it is actually written and laid out quite well. With the addition of keeping on topic and giving fresh new ideas, each article gives you tips, models and difficulty/skill/profitability charts as you read through the book.
99 Ways to Make Money Using Twitter
So what are some of the methods mention in the book for making money on Twitter? From generic to advanced, the book has something for everyone.
– Turn Your Twitter Background into an Unforgettable Brand
Something like your Twitter background might seem so simple, for anyone that has a big following and not using their background for branding, that’s just a waste!
– Measure Your Market with Twitter Polling
Twitter polling interacts with your followers, making them more responsive and want to follow you… while giving you quality polling feedback.
– Pick Up Valuable Stock Tips
Many people don’t know how large stock trading and ticker symbols are on Twitter. Search any ticker symbol by using a dollar sign, then the ticker symbol. (Example: Google Stock “GOOG” is “$GOOG”)
– Build Your Blog with Micro-Blogging
Once you have a large enough following on Twitter, you’ll be surprised how many people will click your tweet links and jump over to your blog to read the full story and contribute with their own comments.
– Scale Your Business by Finding Paid Help
Not only are you building new relationships through Twitter, but you may just find your next business partner or paid help. While other are discussing what they are working on, or passionate about, it might be just what you are looking for to expand your business.
Choosing what Money Making Methods are Right for You
Everyone using Twitter is on a different learning curve. Something as easy as changing your Twitter background may be new to someone else, while setting up a Twitter account to target your band’s fans and give them free music downloads, may be easy for others. Geekpreneur.com did a good job in laying out the book for everyone to get an idea of how complex each task is before starting.
Each topic covered in the book is around 2-3 pages. In addition to the Difficultly/Skill/Income key, each section also has “Tips” and “Models” to help walk you through the process of picking which methods you like to try.
All in all, it’s a decent read and can definitely stir up some new ideas to help you make some new money with Twitter, and maybe bring some new traffic sources to your blogs, web sites and ad campaigns.
The book is currently 21% off at Amazon.com and only $27.72 if you want to grab a copy.
