    I am messing around with Twitter. So far I've made $0. I'm afraid that if I spend the time, to open, say 10,000 accounts, and get 1M followers across them, I will have simply scaled up my failure. I've managed to get quite a few clicks, but nobody buys anything. Are we all just wasting our time?

    #1 most common failure with IM is not trying.

    I make good amounts from Twitter and so do many other people. If people are looking, than people can buy, just find out what they would buy/fill out that would profit you and scale it.

    Have had quite a few signups to affiliate offers but no actual buys. Only tried on one of my Twitter accounts but have a lot. Will scale it up and see what happens. Was very lucky as I got onto Twitter early and got premium names. So guess I should start monetizing them. Thanks for the reminder to make the most out of them.
    Lots of good things come from Twitter with simple contacts. A mag in NYC saw what I write and asked me to do a series for them. The premium name paid off. It is tightly niched.

    Cheers

    There are quite a few people on here that are making money with twitter, I think you can find most of them by.....

    using the search button, its crazy almost like witchcraft, you type something in and boom, links appear with threads and post based on what you searched for.

    :rolleyes:

    I make a good bit white hat traffic. I send them to my Ebay store...the hard part is getting the targeted traffic for your niche which I use wefollow to find my followers. it really comes down to getting a good following- which takes time and twitting people normal life stuff in between twitting them your offers.

    Yes, starting to see some results after just a couple of days researching methods and implementing. Very easy to start building a couple accounts with 500+ followers. I have two that I just started in the last 24 hours. Gonna give a couple of days to build more followers before I lay on the affiliate links.

    Affiliate marketing is not as good with twitter but just normal CPC networks are great to be run with twitter.
