There are many ways to make money online; and Twitter is one of them. Here are five creative ways to make money on Twitter.

Crowdsourcing

This involves soliciting ideas and contributions from a large group or community. If done correctly , it can make you plenty of money , or at least capital for your business or idea . The best way this is done is tweeting to your followers to bring in contributions to fund your business or idea and asking them to help ‘retweet ’ to spread the word .

Produce a Twitter- related service

You already know that the majority generally use Twitter during their free time ; you can take advantage of this by creating a product or service that will appeal to them. A similar product or service may already exist but you can create a better or cheaper one that the users will know and love you for . For example, you can charge people to help them build a Twitter presence and make your prices reasonably and attractively low .

Sponsored tweets

Companies and businesses are willing to pay for your tweets , just as long as you have a large enough following. You can find sponsors willing to pay you to tweet about their products for an arranged fee.

Twitter contest

A contest is one of the most effective ways to engage people on Twitter. You can try linking up with a local business that wants publicity, offer to hold a contest on Twitter to help them with this publicity and ask to be paid a percentage of sales that come in . Be sure that everything is as legally binding as possible to avoid being cheated . You can get a lot of fun and enticing ways to engage followers in a twitter contest ; just brainstorm a little on it.

Sell your own products and services on Twitter

This may seem obvious but the funny thing is that a lot of people don’ t recognise it. Many people aren ’t using Twitter to effectively sell their products and services ; this is unfortunate because Twitter is one of the best ways to do so .

Be on the lookout for and take advantage of trending hashtags related to your products and services and use this opportunity to put your work out there for all , not just your followers, to see . Remember , ‘a little self- promotion can quickly lead to a job. ’
