10 Tips To Make More Money with Sponsored Tweets

written by John Chow on September 27, 2009


You’ve signed up for Sponsored Tweets and now you’re waiting for the advertisers to order some paid tweets from you so you can start making the $300 to $7,500 an hour I talked about in the easiest way to make money with Twitter post. However, you haven’t gotten one single offers. What’s going on? Here are ten tips to increase your chances of getting a sponsored tweet.

1 – Experience Counts

If you’re brand new to Twitter, then your chances of an advertiser ordering a paid tweet from you is slim to none. Your Twitter account should be at least 120 days old before applying to Sponsored Tweets as most advertisers simply will not buy tweets from any accounts that are younger than that.

The account age is valuable for advertisers to filter out spammers and low value Tweeters. If someone has a high number of followers and just recently created an account it may be reason for suspicion. If your Twitter account is brand new, don’t apply.

2 – Have a Complete Twitter Profile

Advertisers like to know who they’re advertising with. If your Twitter profile is incomplete and still running the default background, don’t expect many orders. You don’t have to get a custom Twitter background like what I used but you should make sure all your information is filled out. Make sure you upload your photo or custom avatar as well.

3 – Add Sponsored Tweets To Your Advertise Page

If you’re going to accept Sponsored Tweets, then you might as well tell your advertisers about it. You can use your advertise page to list the benefits of using your Twitter account to help get the advertiser’s message out. Then you can link to the Sponsored Tweets website so they can order.

4 – Show Some Tweet Click Stats

Sponsored Tweets

If you use Hootsuite as your Twitter client (and you should if you’re not) then you can take advantage of its built in stat tracking feature. This is a great way to show advertisers that your followers click on the links you send out.

5 – Turn On ClickWatch

ClickWatch is a program designed to provide a level of protection for advertisers who engage Tweeters in the Sponsored Tweets marketplace. When a Tweeter participating in ClickWatch makes a sponsored tweet the system checks the click performance of that tweet after 48 hours. If the cost per click (CPC) for that tweet is above $1.50 the system will automatically schedule another tweet. The system will check performance again after another 48 hours and make a 3rd tweet if necessary.

Advertisers are lot more likely to order paid tweets from a Tweeter who has ClickWatch on rather than someone who has it off. You can tun on ClickWatch in your Sponsored Tweets control panel.

6 – Monitor The Competition

Wondering if your paid tweet price is too high or too low? You can find out by checking out your competition. Sponsored Tweets maintain a list of tweeters and how much it cost to advertise with them. You don’t have to be an advertiser to view the list.

I’ve made three price adjustments to my tweet price since signing up with Sponsored Tweets. These adjustments help to maintain my competitiveness. Sponsored Tweets gives you a recommend price when you first sign up. However, you don’t have to take it. The best way to set the price is to see what the competition is charging and then charge accordingly.

7 – Maintain a Good Followers to Friends Ratio

Sponsored Tweets

When an advertiser views your Sponsored Tweets profile, they’re presented with some key information about you. One piece of info is the Ratio. This show the number of people you’re following vs. the number of people following you. A Ratio of 1 means you follow the same number of people as the number of people following you. It can also mean you’re using auto following programs to inflate your follower count.

From an advertiser standpoint, the higher the Ratio number, the better. It tells the advertisers that your followers are following you because they want to hear what you have to say and not because you will auto follow them back.

8 – Sign Up for a Klout Account

Another stat Sponsored Tweets advertisers see is your Klout score. The Klout Score is a numerical representation of the size and strength of your sphere of influence on Twitter. The size of your sphere of influence is calculated by measuring true reach (engaged followers and friends vs. spam bots, dead accounts, etc).

The strength of influence is the likelihood that someone will listen or act upon any specific message and is measured by looking at interactions across the social graph. The scores range from 1-100 with higher scores representing a wider and stronger sphere of influence. Here’s the key. Unless you sign up for a Klout account, your score shows up as zero in the Sponsored Tweets page.

9 – Build Real Influence

If you thought that the way to make money with Sponsored Tweets was to build a big list by auto following and unfollowing thousands of people, think again. Advertisers are not dumb. They know how that game works. They’re looking for Tweeters with real influence. That means you actually have to work to build up your Twitter profile instead of letting a program do it. It means you have to get people to follow you because they want to follow you and not because you’ll auto follow them back. When you have real influence, you’ll have a lot of more offers, you’ll command a higher price per tweet and you’ll be able to do step 10.

10 – Apply for Celebrity Status

Sponsored Tweets

When advertisers search for tweeters to advertise with, Sponsored Tweets list the stars and web celebrities first. It goes without saying that being listed on the first page will give you a lot more exposure and therefore a lot more offers.

Sponsored Tweets monitors new Tweeters as they sign up. If they recognize your name they will automatically upgrade you to Internet Celebrity. If not you will need to fill out a form. Pass along things like your Wikipedia page, Blog, YouTube Channel or other relevant sites. Having a bunch of followers on Twitter does not automatically make you a Web Celeb. Acceptance into the program requires influence, visibility and marketability.

If you can’t get celebrity status, then asked to be a “staff pick” as they’re listed right after web celebrities.

Thanks for the tips John, I didn’t even know about half of them haha!

PS, another big thanks for recommending me to HootSuite, it looks WAY better than TweetDeck.

Ben Pei October 3, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Lol yeah.. found Hoot Suite through this too.. Ownage!

Rich Guy October 19, 2009 at 10:32 am

Does sponsored tweets really work?

John Sullivan September 27, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Now that’s a bloggers post Awesome now let me get busy signing up Thanks John :)

Chris Peterson September 27, 2009 at 9:58 pm

What about hat I liked about your tips is that your direct-take approach to tell that you can’t buy into certain areas of success & value. But I know with your tips they can work their way up significantly than before.
It’s worthwhile for anyone reading it.

Carl Coddington September 27, 2009 at 10:02 pm

I am so sick of Twitter. I can’t make heads or tails of it :( I hope your strategy works for me.

Benjamin Cip September 27, 2009 at 10:07 pm

I’m certain John’s strategy will work. As a matter of fact, everytime I followed John Chow’s strategy it worked out for me. So why wouldn’t it work for you?

Sahil Kotak September 27, 2009 at 11:09 pm

It will work for you also and for everyone because John has done research on it and then have posted here. :)

How to Make Money with blog September 28, 2009 at 8:51 am

I am afraid things this like will ruin it further, Its becoming a pool of affiliate links.

-Shanker Bakshi

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 9:06 am

LOL, In that pool everyone is earning money. :D

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:01 pm

I think sponsored tweets ads are always different because it’s different compagnies who buy tweet from different individual twitter users. Unlike Adsense which display same ads on every related site. So I think people are more likely to click on sponsored tweets rather than adsense ads.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:36 pm

Well Yes, Adsense are non of use because it pays less and also displays the same ads everyday.

Ben Pei October 3, 2009 at 9:37 pm

Why sick? I think its kinda interesting.. Interacting with the whole world in one small window..

Benjamin Cip September 27, 2009 at 10:05 pm

Thank you for these usefull tips John. I started twitter arround July, and applied to Sponsored tweet like one month ago, and wanted to know if I made a mistake to apply. I mean, was it too early? Are there any way to cancel my account in order to apply later?

John Chow September 27, 2009 at 10:43 pm

You’re fine. Just work on building influence.

How to Make Money with blog September 28, 2009 at 8:37 am

This post also insist to remove my listing at your site twitterfollower.com which promote auto following, we know you build your huge following initially by auto following ( you have suggested that many times through your previous posts) then suddenly one day you dump down them all. may be your friends at Izea suggested that.

-Shanker Bakshi

Ben Pei October 3, 2009 at 9:38 pm

It really takes time though..

gaban October 10, 2009 at 1:47 am

how long we can complete all this tips? suppose you are newbie like me :)

Sahil Kotak September 27, 2009 at 11:12 pm

I think there is no problem in your time, now you have to just follow some steps of john for getting advertisers.

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:35 am

Thank you for your quick reply John. I guess I’ll have to work on building influence now.

Props Blog Ideas September 28, 2009 at 7:38 am

I also wondered the same thing. My account isn’t even 120 days old, so companies can’t even find my account in their searches. On the bright side, this list will give me a great starting place to figure out how to optimize my account and make it most attractive to potential buyers once my account is old enough.

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:03 pm

How many follower do you have? I don’t have a lot of follower since I removed all the spammer and people who unfollowed me.

Props Blog Ideas September 28, 2009 at 6:59 pm

I’m just under 600. I removed about half the people i followed originally and have been slowly removing more as i notice which people spam or read tweets i really just don’t care about.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:38 pm

LOL, If you do so then you won’t be getting more followers, and less followers = less money.

Michael Powers September 27, 2009 at 10:53 pm

Thanks for the points! I just started using your Twitter Follower program today and also signed up for Sponsored Tweets. Hopefully if I get enough interest in my twitter page this can work on to a little bit of cash for me.

Thanks for the pointers John.

Sahil Kotak September 27, 2009 at 11:14 pm

Hey John’s Twitterfollower is very good program and I also use it, it is very good for getting many followers.

Sahil Kotak September 27, 2009 at 11:15 pm

Very good tips John, and really liked that you explained it, as I was waiting for it.


gaban October 10, 2009 at 1:50 am

john is the master
follow what he said :)

Dietmar Stefitz September 27, 2009 at 11:23 pm

Really good advice. I am going to use many of the stated options. Thanks for sharing. I specially like the stats application.

Blogging September 27, 2009 at 11:30 pm

Point 7 is very interesting, especially when looking at your own ratio, SY

Daan September 28, 2009 at 1:23 am

Great Tips John, you’ve been an inspiration to me since I foun your site (last week ;)) Once I build up a good Twitterazzi (big followship :P) I’ll start working on this.

How to Make Money with blog September 28, 2009 at 8:55 am

“Twitterazzi” thats sound like a great concept , look like something interesting popping out.

-Shanker Bakshi

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 9:10 am

Same Here, looks like something very good.

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:16 pm

Never heard of it before. I have a great knowlege about how to make money from blogging but when It comes to make money with twitter, I only knew revtweet…. I never spent much time on twitter, I only tweeted message that are really worth reading for my readers. Maybe I should tweet more than 5 times/days

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:40 pm

If you tweet more then 5 times/day with no good news then sometime it create chances of getting unfollowed.

sponsored tweets are trend right now…


Blogging Guide September 28, 2009 at 1:47 am

The level of detail you put into your posts is amazing John, its why your 1 of the best! :)

Alex - The Rat Race Lab September 28, 2009 at 2:12 am

I recently had almost 6,000 followers and I was following 5,500 people as well.

Now, I am trying to get those two numbers down to the 2k mark. A lot of the accounts were spammy and self-promoters and I lost contact with a lot of people who I enjoyed networking with. This revenue stream/business model is making me think twice though.

LetUpdate September 28, 2009 at 2:25 am

it is a great tips indeed but in my opinion, the important things is how to increase the followers.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 9:14 am

Yeah, Increasing Followers is the main thing but after getting followers you also need to do them for getting advertisers.

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:07 pm

I wish john will explain a concrete way to increase our follower, or more precisely how to get more influence on twitter so that we can enjoy sponsored tweets.

Lee Ka Hoong September 28, 2009 at 7:58 pm

This is what we want to learn, I’m still trying to increase my twitter follower as it increases very slow. We just need a huge amount of followers to make money with SponsoredTweets.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:42 pm

Why don’t you both use twitterfollower, a tool by John Chow. It is very useful and helps in building list of followers.

sam September 28, 2009 at 3:02 am

I hadn’t thought about sponsored tweets before as a way to make money. Do you think you can really make a lot from it? I have looked into promoting my site on twitter but when I read other peoples spammy 140 characters I don’t click it so I think why would people click mine.

How to Make Money with blog September 28, 2009 at 8:57 am

if you ask me frankly speaking i never click such tweets, i almost know but they has in for me. more over i hardly clicks links in DM also.

-Shanker Bakshi

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Just one Question John, Are you paid just to display the sponsored tweet, or Are you paid only when people click on the sponsored tweets?

John Chow September 28, 2009 at 12:27 pm

It can be both. You can set a price per click to the tweet link or you can charge a set price to send out a tweet. All my offers have been a set price to send out a tweet.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:55 pm

Thanks for explaining John, I was also not knowing about that.


Lee Ka Hoong September 30, 2009 at 9:34 pm

Oh I see, thanks for clarify it too. I thought we can only set it at a price per tweet. But for me, I would prefer to set price per tweet, after all we don’t have to keep track on the click.

sam September 28, 2009 at 3:14 am

I hadn’t thought about sponsored tweets before as a way to make money. Do you think you can really make a lot from it? I have looked into promoting my site on twitter but when I read other peoples spammy 140 characters I don’t click it so I think why would people click mine.

Thanks John, This is the best article so far that I have read regarding twitter marketing… I have not tried it yet but will do in a few minutes. By the way, I am a new blogger, but I have been around the internet technology for quite sometime now but mostly on the programming side.

To more success…

ytechcity September 28, 2009 at 6:15 am

it sound like very easy to make money via twitter, but the most important things is how to increase the number of followers?

Lee Ka Hoong September 28, 2009 at 7:04 am

Omg, I’ve never heard about point #4 to #10! Seems that I need to spend some times to learn that.

You guys must concentrate to build huge follow-ship at twitter.

-Shanker Bakshi

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:12 pm

I agree with you Shanker, we must first concentrate to build a huge followship, just like focusing on getting more traffic to our site.

Lee Ka Hoong September 28, 2009 at 7:11 pm

I do know that building huge followship is the main key to make money with sponsoredTweets, but I’m curious how do you all build up your followship? How to get more people to follow you? I have only 3-5 followers follow me a day, that seems slow.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:56 pm

Yeah, making a big list of followers is most important thing in twitter marketing.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 9:12 am

I have also never heard of them before. :D

Lee Ka Hoong September 28, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Now I can see that actually most of us never heard about those tips that John mentioned above. I learned something new in this post, I’m slowly getting into Twitter marketing and make money with Twitter. :)

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:45 pm

We shouldn’t focus on Twitter only, we have to take advantage on every making money opportunity on the internet to generate multiple income stream and get more chance to gain a 6 figures income.

fas September 28, 2009 at 7:12 am

I see that its not easy getting advertisers unless you have real influence.

Umer Hayat September 28, 2009 at 7:30 am

I just signed up with your referral link at sponseredtweet. Looks like a great new way of earning pocket money.
Lets see whether it will work or not…:)

Yes, they are definitely best and very very useful.

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:13 pm

No need to buy any ebook about how to be successful on Tweeter, just need to read John Chow’s blog :)

Yep, John is very successful in twitter marketing and he gives very good tips on it.

Props Blog Ideas September 28, 2009 at 7:36 am

I haven’t used Hootsuite or Klout before, but i’m really excited to try them both. Hootsuite looks like it has a lot of awesome features which will make keeping track of all the people i’m following and the CTR on my tweets better.

Sahil Kotak September 29, 2009 at 12:03 am

Hootsuite is really good, and I am already using it. It has lots and lots of good and interesting features.

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:48 pm

I’ve never heard of Hootsuite before. You might think I have been living under the rock, but it sounds all new to me. I should find more information about how to make profit from twitter.. Actually, I have bought some ebooks about it, but didn’t find time to read them… I still have to learn Mass Control from Frank Kern.

NipPolls September 28, 2009 at 7:45 am

I Just signed up under John Chow and am looking forward to using sponsored tweets someday. Now I just need some followers. Anyone interested?

Charles Lau September 28, 2009 at 7:45 am

Hi John. Have not been following you for a while. You have evolved a lot already.

This post is definitely useful as it adds value for your tweets to give that extra reason why your advertisers will choose you and not others! :) Thanks John!

Deneil Merritt September 28, 2009 at 8:05 am

Thanks for the tips John. I am sure this will come in handy.

EarningStep September 28, 2009 at 8:16 am

i just shocked with almost all tips i didn’t before.. just great.. . i missed eight from ten tips above..

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Actually, I didn’t know most of these tips. I didn’t spend much time to improbe my followers number etc… I should follow John’s tips and get more influence.

Sahil Kotak September 29, 2009 at 12:04 am

Well many people were not knowing about those tips and they are really useful for me.

-Shanker Bakshi

Benjamin Cip September 28, 2009 at 12:18 pm

Just curious, how much can you charge your tweet? I can only charge my sponsored tweet $1

Lee Ka Hoong September 28, 2009 at 8:10 pm

Ben, did you get any advertiser in SponsoredTweets with $1 per tweet? I’ve set $3 per tweet and I’ve yet to get any advertiser.

Sahil Kotak September 29, 2009 at 12:06 am

I have set $1 for my tweet and I am also still waiting for first advertiser.

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:51 pm

Nope, I haven’t get the attention of any advertisers yet. There are so many Sponsored Tweet user which have more interesting offer for advertisers that we have no choice but get more influence and follower to succeed as a sponsored tweet users… however, I have get two referrals, so I hope they will get some offer to make me earn some commission ;)

Trish Oleary September 28, 2009 at 9:46 am

Awesome post John. I never thought about sponsored tweets before. Thanks also for the Hootsuite recommendation, I have been using Sesmic and I don’t care too much for it.

Hi John

Was this the main reason for the big auto un-follow?

It certainly makes your stats look a heap better and I guess the amount per tweet goes up accordingly.

Love your work by the way and thank you for all the great info you provide.


John Chow September 28, 2009 at 2:55 pm

No, the reason were those I outlined in my post about it. Getting a high ratio was just a neat by product. I received most of my offers before I did my mass unfollowed.

I’ve used twitter to send traffic back to the blog, and also made a few bucks through sponsored tweets. The biggest value is to build up a twitter account for your web site, then flow over traffic from twitter to your blog/site.

assignemnet Help September 29, 2009 at 3:47 am

I appreciate this novel concept. Who won’t like to have such simple earning schemes under his belt. I have a decent list of followers and following too, so I think it will work out for me.

Btw Twitter needs you to spend quite lots of time with it. I guess you need at least more than 10K followers then you’ll only get sufficient sponsored tweets to make a significant amount…. But what John posted here $300-$7,500 an hour sounds really interesting ….. and is much much more than other ways of making money online :D

Jabran Kundi October 3, 2009 at 4:37 am

Well i really appreciate that you have talked straight to the point. People come to such programs looking for quick n easy money. What you have done is that you have given a clear picture that it is not possible. Now i know where i stand and what i should do BEFORE i join sponsored tweets. I must build a reputation on twitter first!
Thanks Chow!

Ben Pei October 3, 2009 at 8:27 pm

$125 per tweet is insane ..

Free Business Cards October 3, 2009 at 9:57 pm

This is great, now I have can use all these twitter accounts I’ve had sitting around for months! Some of the account have 400-4000 followers and I’ve just kind of forgot about them, time to pimp em.

Hi John

Great post, thanks for sharing your money making tips, I think Sponsor Twitters is good and bad.

First of all you need a responsive and huge Twitter following thats the only way you be able to get loads of click through rates and earn loads of commissions from the ads. Like what you have done John.

Some people may get fed up of recieving ads most of time..theres a potential of losing some followers. But apart from that I think its a great way of making some money.

Internet Mogal October 9, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Is sponsored tweeting under the new FTC guidelines as well? What’s the policy on transparency for sponsored tweets?

John Chow October 9, 2009 at 12:49 pm

Sponsored Tweets requires 100% disclosure.

wniizzati October 9, 2009 at 10:28 pm

i had been with twitter not more than 120days, but I had SponsoredTweets accounts already, still didn`t get any advertisement..
you`re right..

wniizzati October 9, 2009 at 11:22 pm

Sponsored Tweets members may also join this program http://twitter.grader.com/ to add their status in Sponsored Tweets profile

deakaz October 11, 2009 at 3:02 am

Im pretty nervous about people unfollowing me, not sure its ethical to try and monetize my tweets. Great tips though John, I may check it out in the future.

work at home October 11, 2009 at 9:13 am

This is one great article that give me lots of knowledge about twitter, sponsored twitter. I did not take twitter seriously before, just thought that twitter is for fun. Now I can understand how to make money by using twitter. I have to learn more on twitter money making system by reading your other blog post. Thank you lots.

Yasir Khan October 11, 2009 at 6:33 pm

This is actually a good post. I always thought that you need to have around 100,000 people following you on Twitter to make any money, but coming to think of it, I have not even used a single suggestion that you have listed over here.

My Twitter profile will be going through an overhaul. Thanks for posting!

How to Make Quick Money October 12, 2009 at 8:38 am

Hey John,

From your previous post I immediately signed up fpr the sponsored tweets but rarely found any advertiser.

Now today, after reading your post I figured out that it is because of the improper follower and following ratio.
I will try to maintain that.

Thanks for such a deep insight about it.

PalmOil October 13, 2009 at 10:39 am

Thanks for important ideas.Twitter rules online world so we need to get most of it.

Togrul October 14, 2009 at 12:17 am

Thanks a lot for valuable tips John:)

I’m now following all your tips as you are my next big inspirer:)

videostar October 15, 2009 at 9:04 pm

No doubt all these tips lead to the road of success.

Nick Bentley October 15, 2009 at 9:56 pm

It’s good advice, but mainly for someone who’s made it and has a great rating already with traffic and a lot of followers on Twitter already. To build up to this level you’ve got to post a lot of solid material. I’d recommend to anyone to post up a storm of at least 100 posts to gain a following and the credibility needed before going this kind of route.

free link Directory October 16, 2009 at 9:24 pm

Not tried sponsored tweets…but I will give it a shot…but your blog is very enjoyable to read…i am bookmarking you…will visit again to to see new post..lol

Salman October 18, 2009 at 7:56 am

Hello Sir,
I have joined sponsored tweets but my twitter account is not 120 days old.Will I have to apply after 120 days or after 120 days will it get be accepted

ngap October 18, 2009 at 2:39 pm

I gave up with all the tips. Not working in my experience, I do not know why

Jennifer October 19, 2009 at 6:07 pm

These are great tips for people trying to attract more followers and be more of a follower. It’s especially great for beginers who are looking to get a lot of followers and get there twitting experience to make them more money. John explained it well and made some great points. This is a great way to make more money and earn the income you want. Hootsuite is something that I never heard much about but now that I have tried it I love it’s features. It’s useful information because it shows fellow twitters that sponser twitting can give you good income.

Hello John,

Thanks for the information.
So it’s time to start making $$$ with Tweets. right?

Lora October 20, 2009 at 6:56 am

Great tips, John
Branding and building relationships are the main factors.
Success in Social Media is based on two-way communications, being a part of the community should be a priority.

John Burton October 22, 2009 at 6:22 am

Great tips. I’ve been using sponsored tweets for nearly 6 months and have already made literally thousands. FANTASTIC way to make money online.

John Burton

Johnleo October 23, 2009 at 12:23 am

Very useful tips, make money online is an interesting experience, thx.

titan October 25, 2009 at 4:48 am

wow. you really earn well with that program.

Jr180180 October 25, 2009 at 6:22 pm

Very useful information. Thanks!

akuchey October 26, 2009 at 11:09 pm

sponsor tweetis new way to make money online..but sometime when someone see your profile full with ads maybe they dont interest.

Sahil Kotak September 28, 2009 at 11:58 pm

You are getting just 3-5 followers a day?? I get nearly 50-60 new followers a day. :)

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:31 pm

Also people get used to see the same Adsense ads everyday, so I guess once they click on ads, they won’t click on the same ads everytime, so you need different visitors that could be interested in the adsense ads you display on your site..

gaban October 10, 2009 at 1:42 am

yeah agree with you
i have very less earned for two months

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:33 pm

I don’t mind about getting less follower. I want to get quality follower that provide interesting tweets and informations. The best would be to create a successful blog that make people interested in following you on twitter just like John Chow and other dot com mogul.

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Well, some people tweet about thing like “I ate an apple two minutes ago” but have a big following list… maybe not so many readers read their tweet… you know when people are following too much person, the tweet are uploading so fast that you don’t have time to read their tweets.

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:39 pm

Thank you for your reply John. I think It’s more interesting to be pay to send out a tweet rather than being paid depending on the Click through rate.

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:40 pm

Thank you Sahil. I’ll give it a try.

Lee Ka Hoong September 30, 2009 at 5:54 pm

Oh I see. Sahil, do you use TwitterFollower and how’s your experience with that?

Benjamin Cip September 29, 2009 at 12:42 pm

I recently don’t get any new follower since I removed my twitter box on my blog. I should use it again to increase my follower… it’s just that I want to find a cool box like on my previous blog theme.

Lee Ka Hoong September 30, 2009 at 9:43 pm

Standing out from the crowd is not that easy as there are tons of well known twitter users on SponsoredTweets. I believe that celebrity blogger might catches most of the advertisers’ eyes.

I’m trying to improve the number of followers right now and see what will be happened in some days. ;)

Sahil Kotak October 1, 2009 at 3:39 am

Yeah Ben, I do agree with you. That makes your site boring also. :D

Sahil Kotak October 1, 2009 at 3:41 am

Yeah, But you can lose the money which you get with high followers list.
