    Hi All, I have over 15k real Twitter followers but I am clueless on how to monetize them. They are not niche specific.
    So far, I have only tried 'selling tweets to businesses' for monetization.. can someone suggest any other methods ?
    I am even open to JV's.

    Let me know,
    Jo

    I think twitter was working few years ago, before it turns to a spamming community, 99% don't read your tweets, you add me to add you and then I'll spam you and you will spam me and each hope the other click the link lol
    Personally I have over 10 accounts and I use them to post my auto blogs post as tweets to them and I was hoping to make twitter as a source of a traffic instead of Google, but I figured out that was a waste of time, nothing better than Google traffic.
    Anyway, as super11 told you, it's better to make a gig on Fiverr, say something like " I'll tweet your link 5 times to my 15K tweeter followers for $5"
    Good Luck

    Use a paying url shortening service like linkbucks or ad.fly and then make the offer on fivver. You will get paid twice then.

    With untargeted twitter accounts you can get some traffic to go where you want but you really have to tweet like crazy to get it. Conversions? thats another story.

    I never prefer using Twitter for marketing. Twitter is not made for marketing.

    you can also check twittad, you may find there somebody who'll advertise his/her business on your twitter profile background, this way you can make $$/mth, it's not too much, but hey it's passive income
    if you can increase your followers number, you can earn more of course
    but make sure your account, tweets looks legit, because nobody will interested hiring you to advertise, if your account looks spammy and you're full of bot followers and spammy tweets

    Darn ! Thats what I thought.. Twitter is just too commercialized. I get many tweet orders but those would also slowly go down when people realize - Hey ! No one's clicking so why am I paying. lol

    I have to disagree with twitter being out. Yes, it is too commercialized in some areas, but in a good niche, it can still bring good traffic.

    Use trends to find what is trending and tweet about that then throw in a link to a cpa offer that may be related to see what happens.

    Well currently I am already making $500 to $1000 a month with this account... just by selling tweets on it.. Do you think adding cpa offers etc would enhance this earning ?

    I agree with many of the comments here. I have participated in much of the Twitter marketing, however I have a growing sense that the conversion is not happening as much as I would like.

    I would personally try out different CPA offers until one gets a sale. When it does, I would keep promoting that one. And do the same thing again, until I find a few more good ones. Then when I have about 5 really good converting ones, I would change around my ad copy that I tweet until I notice it is giving me the most clicks. I would have about 20 really good ad copy samples and use them with my 5 cpa offers.
