    Does anyone manage to make much money from twitter? I see alot of threads here about paid to tweet services, but no one seems to gain much from them.

    I have had a fair bit of success in the form of traffic from one of my big accounts - it is closely tied up with a website I run and it drives a fair amount of traffic to my site - I consider that to be a small success (currently has about 5k followers).

    Where I have had most success though is selling twitter management services - I figure it's hard to sell things on twitter because all anyone is after is getting more followers! So I decided to exploit that angle and offer twitter management services to my followers - I send out tweets then I handle any interest via DM, I then offer a 30 free trial using a paypal subscription link - this way they're not locked in, but they are making some commitment.

    I basically offer a certain amount of followers per month then I add the accounts in to tweetadder (I like that program). If I loose them after the free trial I haven't lost much, but I'm hoping to build up a list of pay-monthly clients, for very little work.

    At the moment I have only two accounts signed up (£10 per month each) (I know that's small time) but I'm hoping to scale it up, and to be honest it's the best success I've had so far on twitter.

    I know it's not exactly "how to get rich" but I just thought I would share my experience!

    If your followers belong to a particular niche try and exploit that, but in my experience you will need alot more than 1k followers!

    I am in a similar situation -

    I have a music website with a twitter following of 4500 and klout score of 52

    We are very selective in who we put on the site so many consider it an honor to be on it.

    thinking of doing the same thing - was also thinking of tying their twitter followers into promotion on the website also - like offer a packaged deal - say for $35

    they get:
    2 weeks of tweets on our twitter account - maybe 1 week (thinking if we dont like their music)
    Article on website
    1000 followers in 1 month

    I wouldn't do free trials though
    Those fools should pay

    thinking of outsourcing the 1000 twitter followers to Fiverr though - charge the guys $40 for the whole packaged deal

    tweetadder is definitely worth the investment - I have 8 twitter accounts most with 2000 plus followers and all running on seperate proxies (hope that helps)

    I am looking more into creating valuable twitter accounts to sell advertising on vs trying to spam everyone with CPA offers - (like EF Hutton - "when my twitter account talks - people listen")

    I can get clicks on the CPA offers but not many conversions - the average user has gained spam intelligence

    If this was 2008 it would be more successful

    If you outsource 1k followers, pm me, I would be interested in a JV (I can provide 1k very quickly).
