It is no surprise that the social networks online are the highlight of many peoples days. It has become a need more than a hobby. Millions have spent hours tweaking and changing their pages to match their personality, update their friends and families and attract new friends and followers. With all that time spent, wouldn’t it be nice to get a little something back? The latest in social media is how to monetize or profit, from your network of followers on Twitter and Facebook.
How To Monetize your Twitter account:
Twitter has quickly become an addiction to most social media divas. With people vying for followers and attempting to gain as many as possible, it gives the ability to turn those followers into cash. Here are a few ways you can profit from the twitter community:
With most social media sites, there is a like button that can yield profit. Signing up on mylikes.com can make you money by recommending sponsored likes on your network. You get paid per click from your followers. These likes can pay anywhere from $0.10 per click upwards to $1.00 per click. By signing up on the site, you can choose which sponsors you want to advertise.
Twitter tweeters can utilize their tweets to create a little extra income. At sponsoredtweets.com you can set your pay rate and choose which advertisers you want to promote for your tweets. You earn income either by each tweet or click. This is quickly becoming the preferred way of monetizing your twitter.
If you are new to twitter and don’t have a lot of followers, this may be the easiest way to make some extra cash. With Twittad you sell your background space for a weekly rate. Advertisers will post their ads on your page background and through Paypal you will earn cash for renting this space.
How to Monetize your Facebook account:
As with Twitter, the previous programs can also be utilized on Facebook. However there are other ways available to Facebook that are not yet available for Twitter. Here are a few easy ways to make money from your already booming network list.
Create ads to make money using Google AdSense. It is an easy way to generate revenue per click from your Facebook page. Your viewers will be able to see ads that you target. Many will be interested enough to click on your ad to learn more. Whenever someone clicks on your ad, you make money. I recommend you to check with Google Adsense TOS before you enable this.
You can link files on your Facebook page to a company like ShareCash. ShareCash allows you to upload files to their site. You profit whenever viewers click and download your files.
-Profit and Blog:
You can make money on Facebook when you link with websites like Social Spark. Social Spark monetizes your blog. If your invited friends follow your blog, you will generate profit.
-Get Cash for Posting Videos:
Monetize your videos that are posted to your Facebook page when viewers click to view. This works with Google AdSense and Youtube. You can maximize your profit by including descriptions in detail so our videos will pop up as Facebook searches and will attract others besides your fans.
These are just a few ways you can make a profit on your social networks. As the Twitter craze increases, more advertising and marketing companies will find a way to pay for your addiction. Though you may not get rich by monetizing your pages and tweets, you may be able to make a cool $100 – $400 each month. This income will grow as you work to build your network and traffic to your Twitter and Facebook page.
