Viral marketing at Twitter has encouraged online entrepreneurs to resort to Twitter advertising. Twitter is the most popular social networking site and has millions of followers. The interaction of twitters is also very convenient and easy. All they have to do is to post 140 words and include the links that they want other users to visit. Some use the site to interact with other users.
Enterprising advertisers saw the goldmine at twitter and had offered the twitters the ability to earn from their tweets. This is how they do twitter advertising:
1. Twitter members apply to the advertiser. Usually advertisers will approve members who have many followers for obvious reasons. Those who have less followers earn less.
2. When approved the Twitter member can earn by tweeting the advertiser's links to his products. The payment will depend upon how many followers the member has and how active he is at Twitter. Very popular members earn as much as $ 150 per tweet. The least popular members earn about $ 0.60 per tweet. This is still a good way to earn, sometimes more than what others earn from Google AdSense. If a member tweeted 10 times, then he will be earning $ 6. Tweeting is very easy so he could earn more within a day with twitter advertising.
3. Advertisers have the option to select who among the members would tweet the link. After applying and being approved, all members have to do is wait for the Twitter advertising assignments. It works like paid posts on blogs or sites, the higher your Google Page Rank is, the higher you earn from the paid post.
Twitter advertising is an excellent method to attract buyers. With the scope and ease of use, Twitter has made advertising and marketing viral and dynamic. Multiply with any number, the millions of twitter users and you get powerful advertising avenues for your products.
