Tweetbucks

Here's a great idea for making some extra dosh.



Tweetbucks allows you to 'sell' links to products for cash. It's that simple.
You will need a Twitter account before you can get started, but that's all.

Now, I am the first to be cynical about these kind of things, however, this seems so simple and it doesn't involve any capital outlay; in other words it's free.

What's the catch?

OK, I admit, there is one catch.

It's a numbers game.

To make money, you need as many followers as possible to click on your links, which is why you need a large number of quality followers on Twitter.

I say 'quality' because some of your follower will, undoubtably, be businesses and spambots - automated followers, who cannot react to your messages.

When your followers click on a link, you earn. If you link to an affiliated site, then you also earn a small percentage of whatever is spent.

Now, don't get me wrong. This is not a 'get rich quick scheme'. It will take many, many clicks to earn money, and Tweetbucks won't pay out until you reach $25.00.

They give you $5 for signing up, but after that you're talking cents.

As an example, after 526 clicks (from 29 links), I've earned 75cents. Not exactly earth shattering.

So what can you do to improve your 'hit' rate.

  1. Target your links to your audience
  2. Don't go overboard on links - this will just turn your followers off
  3. Write your links yourself - the personal touch goes along way, rather than the automated links
That's all there is to it. Get yourself set-up, start twittering (if you're not already) and add your links.

Oh, and if you want to follow me on Twitter, then I look forward to seeing you there.
