    I have a twitter account with 100k targeted followers in the college/humor niche. Yes, all followers are real. Everything posted on the account is college related. Most tweets get around 15k impressions and around 50-100 retweets. What is the best way to make money off of it? How much can I make? Many people have told me to use adsense and create a gallery website and direct traffic here. Is this the best option? My goal is to make the most amount of money while keeping my followers happy. Another question, if I ever decided to sell the account, what is it worth? Its tweets get around 15-20 million impressions every 30 days

    Have you ever seen those sites that are like: 10 Worst Blah Blah Blah or whatever. Make one of those sites and put adsense on it. Or you could try CPA but with the niche your in it would be hard.

    You can use adfly. But you need a minimum of 10,000 human followers

    I guarantee someone's going to suggest fiverr. I wish there was a button that we could push that would cause someone to be punched in the face for suggesting fiverr to any legitimate twitter accounts.

    Anyway, Adsense galleries are without a doubt your best option. The trouble is that they're banned frequently when they have only twitter traffic so I'd refrain from making your own and post for a number of different existing galleries. It would be smart to post a few ads monthly for chacha and skylikes too just to be safe.

    An account averaging 50-100 retweets won't be making you all that much. You really ought to stick to growing it for the time being. My general rule is to not start monetizing my accounts until they're consistently hitting 200. And are you asking what it's worth now? Well, you'd really need to figure out its earning capacity but with the way the Twitter market is right now I can't see it going for more than $300.

    I know they make money, but God those sites are annoying hahha! Why can't you move quickly from 1 to 10 in the list!!

    I read somewhere about someone planning a Twitter rival, except your page had its own website that you could sell banners on.

    To me, Twitter is the most devastatingly viral site, over the short term. With Youtube being more viral over a few days.
    But I've only ever been able to conceive Twitter for its quick communication/viral spreading. I always feel like twitter is "missing something".

    Yeah I think thats one way. The other is to get a viral marketing tweet and then click thro income. Either way, Twitter still isn't a big "standalone" tool for most people.

    What do you mean by "post for a number of different existing galleries? So if I'm getting retweets in the 200s what do you think I could make a day? I just want to monetize, not get banned, and create an income stream for a long time.

    Don't these gallery sites get banned and in worst case sued since you dont own the pics??
    How do you monetize Skadoosh? And if you have an easy niche like fitness and health, when do you think it's going to start paying decently?

    Trade rts, your account is unlikely to generate much by itself. If you were to sell about 500$ i reckon. I can help you monetize, I'll pm you my email so we can work something out

    By "post for a number of different existing galleries" I mean find people with Adsense galleries and ask if you can post for them for a percentage of your profits. For example, I'm currently using 3 different Adsense sites, all owned and operated by different people, and they keep 10-20% of what I make using their sites. That way, if one of their Adsense accounts get banned then I'm not completely screwed.

    I wasn't talking about your Twitter account getting banned, I was talking about Adsense accounts getting banned for having only Twitter traffic. Your Twitter account will be fine.

    And it's hard to tell when you can make with 200 retweets. I've had accounts that can bring in $250 per link and I've also had accounts that only get $50.


    Yeah, an Adsense gallery site with only Twitter traffic probably won't stay up longer than 6 months (and they often don't make it that long). I've never heard of anyone getting sued because of it though.

    I monetize using other peoples Adsense sites, some health ads even though most of my accounts are in the comedy niche, and some skylikes ads.
