Sponsored Tweets Adds Sponsor Me Feature

During IZEAFest, CEO Ted Murphy unveiled a new feature for Sponsored Tweets call Sponsor Me. The feature is designed to help tweeters get more sponsored opportunities by sending traffic directly to their customize profile page on Sponsored Tweets. This makes it a lot easier for an advertiser to order a tweet from you. What’s more, if the advertiser is new, you will earn 5% of Sponsored Tweets cut on every transaction that the advertiser completes for a period of two years. Here’s how to set it up.

Grab Your Sponsor Me Badge

Log into your account at Sponsored Tweets and go into the referral section. Scroll down to the section that says, β€œyour public profile” and grab the Sponsor Me badge. Alternatively, you can use the bit.ly link. Put the badge on your blog, use the link in your twitter stream, blog post, advertise page, email marketing, etc.

Your Sponsored Tweets Profile Page

When people click on your Sponsored Me link they will land on a custom profile page featuring your information. From there, they can create an opportunity just for you without having to be a current Sponsored Tweets customer or get into a more complicated transaction. And of course, if the advertiser is new, you’ll earn 5% on whatever they order from any tweeters for the next two years. This is on top of the money you’ll make from doing the tweet (you’ll make 5% on your own tweet as well).

Sponsored Tweets Profile

Promote Me (or Anyone Else) and Earn a Referral Fee

This is a cool little trick you can use to earn referral income by sending traffic to popular tweeters. Every tweeter in Sponsored Tweets has a public profile and you can use your referral code to point to any of them. If you think you have a better chance of landing me a gig than you do of getting one yourself, You can do that by simply changing your Sponsor Me link code.


For example, If I want to create a link to sponsor Zac Johnson, I would merely change the /JohnChow?… part of the link to /moneyreign?… If any new advertiser goes to Zac’s profile via my link, I will get 5% on whatever is ordered for the next two years. You can use this method to point to any profile page and get referral credit for the transaction.

The Easiest Way To Make Money from Twitter

Sponsored Tweets is really starting to take off. So far this month, I am averaging almost one new paid tweet per day. If this holds up, it will mean over $3,000 per month in additional online income that takes just a few minute to do. No doubt it, Sponsored Tweets is the easiest way to make money from Twitter.

    Thanks for the tip! I was wondering when they were going to release something like this.

      An interesting study on ways to make money on twitter here: http://www.money-era.com/category/monetizing-twitter/

    John you may be getting one sponsored tweet per day because of your status, otherwise, I will be amazed if new tweeters will even get one sponsored tweet per year.

    I heard that I was the 10000th registrant on sponsoredtweets (@justinottawa) and won $1000 as announced during IZEAfest but have not heard anything from sponsoredtweets yet.

    1. Well if you have any proof of that than I think you should hit them an email …

      Congrats in advance … so one party is due from you πŸ™‚

      1. Okay Lets make it serious ,

        Aansa if you have some proofs to show that you were 1000th registrant on sponsredtweets and won $1000 as announced during IZEAfest then we will make them pay.

        Whatever if they say you are not the 1000th registrant then i want to meet the other 1000th registratnt. I will not stop on this. if this is not real then its last of its kind, i can promise me.

        Lets mess up with this.

        @Ted Murphy : are you listening to us, would you like to make the things clear here.

      I want to agree on that one. But for those lowly blogging buddies, they may not get as much attention of sponsoring tweets and in effect earn quite a good amount.

      That means we need to build first a good base of followers.

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        If she really win, then she must get her $1000 reward. otherwise it will change my opinion about sponsored tweet significantly! Maybe John Chow would word would have more impact than our… to solve this problem! Good luck anyway! We are with you aansa!

        1. I think we should see first her proof or the source from where she comes to know that she was 1000th …

          So Aansa … ball is in your court now.

    3. Congratulations on your being the 10,000th registrant…let’s hope you get your prize in good time!

      John’s reputation and 46k odd followers is definitely cause for him getting a sponsred tweet a day. It shows you yet agin, that he money is in the list, be it email or twitter followers πŸ˜‰

    4. Dan... says:

      Congrats and glad to see you and IZEA’s @tedmurphy connected on this. I remember him asking everyone at IZEAFest this weekend to tweet you about the big win.

  3. Yes if they want to grow and want to be fresh always … than now and there they should keep adding new beneficial features.

  4. Daan says:

    Wow, I read in your ebook it’s important to keep multiple streams of cashflow. You really seem to stick to this don’t you? πŸ™‚

    It’s a shame I can’t start using my SponsoredTweets account yet, because my Twitter account has to be at least 3 months old. Anyway, I’ve already started collecting referrals thru my blog. So right now I’m collecting nickles, but it’s nice for doing nothing anyway. πŸ™‚

    Thnx for the tip John!

    1. I’m definitely going to look into this… My Twitter account is about 18 months old already!

      1. Here no of followers are also play an important role.

        How many followers do you have … according to that you can demand the money.

        1. It’s all in the amount of followers, at the end of the day. As I said earlier, this is another classic example of the money being in the list!

          There is some great software and strategies out there to build your twitter follower base, and it definitely seems worthwhile doing it!

          1. Yes if you have decent number of followers than people would love to click the button of FOLLOW in your profile … if you have less follower than certainly people will hesitate to follow you.

            Show off is the business here as well.

  5. Wow! One per day!? that’s really awesome money. I can personally attest that when John Chow tweets something it gets traffic!

    Within 1 hour of his RT my post reviewing my top 5 MMO sites (including johnchow.com) I received over 100 hits.

    That sponsor me tag will definitely help Sponsored tweets gain some more strength!

  6. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    Wow 1 new paid tweets per day? But it definitely makes sense since you have huge followers and especially your brand John, you have a strong and solid brand!

    SponsoredTweets grows rapidly and they have add on many new features from time to time now..they did a great job!

  7. Interesting…who would have thought there could be a referral system like this, lol.


  8. Richard says:

    Very interesting.. my twitter account though is only two months old, but nonetheless, I will surely look into this. Another addition to money making schemes from John Chow… I am slowly becoming an avid fan of yours for just over a month of blogging. Your posts are very very relevant to what every blogger need to continue blogging.

    My goal is to be one of the best resource in earning online in the next 2-3 years. πŸ™‚

    1. It’s good to set goals, good luck with them.

      1. Richard says:

        Thank you. I know I can do it. I’ll just take one day at a time. Committing myself to write an article at least once a day. If i can do that, I think I have done the first step, the rest will be a journey.

        1. Hiya Richard

          The article writing is key. Also do your keyword reaearch nicely around each article and make sure you’re optimised properly so that your articles will rank well in the search engines.

          Good luck to you Richard!



  9. Just make sure you disclose everything so our nice pariah FTC in the USA doesn’t get their panties in a wad.

    1. It is interesting to see how newest FTC rule will affect sponsored tweets.

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        It seems many people are afraid about new FTC rules.

        1. Not afraid of the FTC, they just ought to stay the heck out of the business of the internet.

  10. aaw. Twitter is really conquering all.. wehehe. Anyway, I enjoyed reading your site. Concerning twitter, is there any daily limit on post in twitter??


    1. Bill Andrews says:

      What I know is there’s no post limit daily. However, you can only send 250 direct messages daily. And a maximum of 2000 persons to follow. If you reach the limit of 2000, in order for you to add again. You need to have 2000 followers..

      This is a very informative blog..

  11. Donny Gamble says:

    I definitely like this new feature that Ted Murphy implemented for sponsored tweets. I definitely think that it will add new advertisers to the site and increase the amount of tweeters

    1. Yes that is the main aim of this to attract more and more advertisers and twitters …

      They should have the balance of both to get more and more sponsored tweets and money.

  12. JoshuaElliot says:

    Thanks John for sharing, you really have a lot of ideas on how to make money online.

  13. What a tip there. Surely the possibility more big if use big blogger name. πŸ˜€

  14. sanjay says:

    I signed up for this, I guess I can earn some good amount from this Sponsored Tweets.

  15. I can see this being excellent for some one with a high profile and tweet asking price like yourself John.

    The referral program is good, but is anyone spending big bux on these kinds of advertising campaigns?

    I have heard a lot of complaints from bloggers and writers in the Izea camp. They get very little money and very little opportunities, and some claimed the fact they disclosed they were making money meant that their google search rankings were marginally affected.

    I think if you have a lot of profile, like you are a celebrity or a john chow, then this is most certainly a good investment of your time.

    My other big problem with this is the cost of a 140 character tweet. Some of the celebs are charging near $3,000. For that money, I’d want some good stats on how much that tweet generates, otherwise, it is an utter waste of time for both tweeters and advertisers.

    1. And when I said, “how much that tweet generates” I meant how much traffic does it generate?

  16. EarningStep says:

    cool..this is new feature from sponsored tweets . when revtwt has new feature too.. look like make money with twitter is getting easier now

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      Which do you prefer revtwt or sponsored tweets?

    2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

      There is more and more new money making programs established on the internet, making money with Twitter is getting easier now. But first we need to build followship, and then convert it to money. πŸ˜€

      Did you find revtwt useful for you?

  17. I’m still building my Twitter followers, not even close to the 40k John has yet! At least someone is making money from Twitter, even if they can’t.

  18. That is a good info for me. I think I better count on it.

  19. Benjamin Cip says:

    I noticed this feature yesterday, and added it in my advertize page on my site. Hope It will interest some advertisers.

    1. Which features you are talking about Benz

  20. fas says:

    Cools stuff. They are expanding. I am wondering how much Kim Kardashian makes.

  21. Money-Era says:

    This program sounds great, especially with the possibility of earning through better established bloggers.
    I just wonder if they will make payouts as promised.
    But since John was wearing the t-shirt with their logo I think he has checked everything out not to ruin his reputation.

  22. JoJo says:

    Thanks for the post. I caught it on Twitter and did not realize that they had this new option. Got to go check it out.

  23. I don’t know about this, i like learn more about this method, making money with twitter..


  24. Fascinating to me Ted, how IZEA and TweetROI are taking very different approaches to bidding and Twitterer filtering. In IST (IZEA Sponsored Tweets), Twitterers set the price first- whereas in TweetROI, marketers bid first. Our UserRank system I think will do better to scale for larger reach while maintaining influence/cost, preventing spam, and reducing campaign admin time. But it will be interesting to see how it plays out πŸ™‚

  25. I have a visceral “I can’t stand this” reaction that I’m trying to dissect objectively. On a personal level, I guess I fear the influx of sponsored tweets in my stream (which I imagine will be just one notch less annoying than tweet-scraping porn bots and SEO spammers). Professionally, I worry that my clients (I’m in PR) are going to get talked into this by their other partner agencies (digital, WOM, advertising)and make messes that we’re going to have to clean up. As for celebrities being a selling point, I can’t imagine what celebrity of any real stature would ever sign up for this? It takes brand shilling to a whole new low.

  26. You raise some very pertinent points, Height Weigh Chart, and that four-letter word “spam” is right in there. I hate spam, it is the scourge of the internet, and I feel one of the greatest challenges facing twitter today is how to deal with spam decisively.

    I think we also have to look at the advert vs content ratio of sponsored tweets, and I must say that I do not find one sponsored tweets per day form John excessive at all. More is definitely not merrier though!

    1. Something like that could easily be made to use the twitter api… Death to the developer that actually brings something like this to life. Theres enough spam on twitter already, we certainly do not need anymore.

    2. Our goal is to actually lessen the frequency of sponsored tweets and increase the quality. We believe that transparency of identity is key. Spam is generated from bots and worthless Twitter accounts. Real people with real followers don’t create spam.

  27. Hey John,

    I have came to know about the sponsored tweet from you and then I got additional information about the setup of sponsored tweets and now this info is amazing of all.

    I am going to promote you for sure.

    Thanks for the information.

  28. poorblogger says:

    It’s not work for me..
    Sometimes I hate it

  29. FxSuperb says:

    Interesting, I will try this!

  30. Hi John,

    Your Blog is simply outstanding!

    That’s why I keep coming back for more, that’s the secret to a great blog, give VALUE & people keep coming back.

  31. Its absolutely cool to see that there is such a huge potential probable when you have twitter account of that size. It’s great! What kinda ratio do you think is possible for twitters with lesser no. of followers?

  32. Sponsor Ads says:

    With smaller number of followers the chances are slim to make loads of money. But then still the dollars are dollars so there should be no problem in atleast trying it out.

  33. work at home says:

    Your earning is really very nice by sponsored tweets. I joined in sponsored tweet yesterday. Hope I can make money by sponsored tweets.
