    Any ideas on how to better monetize a 825k twitter account and an assortment of other smaller ones totaling 1.2 million followers?

    I have been living off the 825k account for a year but recently over the past two months all my methods for making income have tanked. Just recently, mylikes lost all the good offers on June 30 leaving nothing but crap lol. Tweet one crap offer and I will make about ten bucks rather than the usual twenty to forty on good link offers.

    It's not a good idea to tweet spam often, so tweeting ten dollar links 20x, 30x is not going to happen.

    Same thing with zip and email submits. Run one link a few times, make a few hundred and then it's tapped out. I can only run $1000 and $500 gift cards for so long.

    Sending traffic to a landing page with adsense only netted me a couple hundred per month. Not nearly enough.

    Selling tweets is against twitters ToS when done on site. I have done it a few times for $100 a tweet but it's far and few between.

    I am at a loss for ideas.

    Suggestions?

    Send them to a page with a "crazy" or funny video, lock it with a content locker that requires a facebook "like" to unlock the video, once you have enough likes and start getting loads of traffic replace the social locker with a standard content locker promoting CPA offers, pocket $$$$.

    you can always sign up with more twitter ad networks: sponsoredtweets, twittad, twtmob, be-a-magpie
    you can even try out revtwt's CPT ads (which pays after the number of followers you have), however those ads look like spam, because they're spam :)
    twtmob paid me around $30 twice for one tweet and i had 10 times less followers at that time than you have now, let's say they select your account for only one campaign per month, you can earn $300 (rough estimate, it can be that it's not multiplying purely with the number of followers) with one tweet which more likely doesn't annoy your followers much, because those ads don't look like an ad, only setback: they don't have too much campaign running

    I am going to promote a bux bux PTC service/website. Building a community of people looking to make money should offer a good marketing channel.

    sponsored tweets... Selling traffic on fiverr (you can always decide to whom you will send traffic) That way you chose only best and most interesting websites and your audience/followers are always happy :)

    Yes, niched but even without the niche just using a good offer (which comes and goes) I have made $500-$1k per day for months while those offers run. When there are no good offers, I am dealing with hundred dollar days. So no, I would never sell it even though I am in a down time. It can make far too much money to be sold when offers are good.
