    Sick of not making any money with Twitter? Here's a Twitter method that's a little different from your typical follow / unfollow or wait and reply techniques. It's more of a mid-term earner than a quick blast method and it relies on generating SE traffic rather than making money directly from Twitter traffic.


    STEP 1 - Choose offers
    Pick several good free CPA offers in specific niches from your favourite CPA network(s). You want free email and zip submits, preferrably first page. For this example we'll use a $200 Nike gift card (thus the niche would be 'nike').


    STEP 2 - Get keywords
    Harvest a good keyword list for your niche. Adwords tool, Market Samurai etc. You predominantly want mid to long tail keywords although you could try some more competitive keywords and see what happens.


    STEP 3 - Make Twitter accounts
    Create or procure hundreds / thousands of Twitter accounts. If you can, pick out some good keywords from your list and try to get exact match usernames (eg. @nikeairjordans). Add a few initial friends, fill in the profile etc etc.


    STEP 4 - Set up your Twitter profiles
    Gradually fill up your profiles with some initial Tweets. You want a mix of:

    a) Generic scraped tweets from random profiles (without any links, of course).

    b) Simple generated tweets stuffed with keywords in your niche ("I love my nike golf cap, nike air jordans, nike michael jordan, and my nike catalog 2011" etc). You will need a very simple generator script for this - just stuff those keywords in there! Doesn't have to be particularly pretty - you're just stuffing your Twitter page with niche keywords to attract SE traffic. If you want to be sophisticated, divide up your keyword list evenly amongst your profiles. Keep a record of the keyword list you use for each profile - use these keywords as the anchor text for the links you're going to generate a few steps from now...

    c) Well written ad tweets that point to your CPA offer (redirected through a referrer blanker like Brad's CPA redirector of course). Use those unicode symbols (stars etc) to draw attention to your ad tweets on the page.

    You probably want 40-60 tweets to start with and you want your top tweet to be an ad tweet. I would post an ad tweet every 5-8 tweets so you have at least 2-3 ad tweets on your front page. You want to make it so a new visitor looking at your Twitter profile absolutely can't miss reading one of your ad tweets.


    STEP 5 - Add random followers
    Go to all the follow back sites and add yourself, twiends and all that shit, follow the top 500 followback lists etc and get yourself several hundred or more followers. They don't have to be targeted or even real - bots are fine. The only requirement is that your followers should in turn be following / be followed by lots of people. We just want to get our profiles meshed in firmly with the rest of Twitter from an SE perspective.


    STEP 6 - Create backlinks
    Go out and backlink your profiles. All your usual tricks, keep it simple and easy. Scrapebox, Scrapeboard, Sick, Xrumer, web 2.0s if you can be bothered etc. - whatever you have available. Remember you have a high probability of losing profiles with Twitter so keep it simple and quick - don't put in too much effort. Keep the anchor text targeted to your niche. For best results, use the keyword list you used for each profile from step 3b if you can manage it.


    STEP 7 - Profit $$$
    Roll around in your swimming pool of money and light your doobies with hundred dollar bills.


    That's it! Your profiles will soon start to get a trickle of targeted SE hits because Twitter is actually really good to use as a parasite host and has a lot of social buzz "juice."

    Each profile will only get a trickle, but en masse you could easily make an extra $20-50 a day from this high quality SE traffic seeing your juicy free offers. Twitter traffic (ie from people looking at their Twitter streams, of which you will also get a trickle) is shit, but SE traffic is a whole different ball game and has much higher conversions.

    Because we're not aggressively following and unfollowing or @replying, the profiles should last reasonably well and since it's SE traffic, it's not just flash in the pan like with most Twitter traffic methods. You could keep on posting the occasional tweet to keep the profiles fresh and getting spidered if you can be bothered.

    Rinse and repeat!

    Awesome! Thanks for the great info!

    This will definitely be a tactic that I'll use in the coming days (once I'm done with the Adsense project I have going on).

    There are various people selling them, there is an account maker sold by the guy behind Tweet Attacks and there is at least one free account maker floating around on the downloads board. I made my own in PHP.

    Thanks, I hope you make some additional money with it.

    I came across this idea when I realized I was getting sign ups to offers that I hadn't promoted for ages on profiles that hadn't been used in a while. The traffic you get to an old spammy profile is absolutely minimal, so I did some digging and found that some of my profiles had some remarkably good SE rankings for long tail keywords. Stuff some more keywords in there and add some links and, combined with the trust associated with twitter.com, you have a recipe for some semi-decent SE traffic.

    If the only links amongst your tweets are to your offer then you will actually get pretty good clicks, and if your ad tweets make the offer sound compelling then you can get good conversions. Twitter profiles actually work pretty well as doorway / landing pages.

    I'd highly recommend anyone working with Twitter to focus on free email or zip submit CPA offers if at all possible. CPA, possibly along with download lockers, really is the best way to convert the traffic IMHO.

    You mentioned 100's or 1000's of accounts but your description seeem to be related to a single account at time
    . I can't see the point about how you can manage 100's account if i neeed to do those steps for every single acct.

    The point is to use automation. You shouldn't be touching any of the accounts by hand. This isn't a method for people manually working with individual Twitter accounts... It's aimed at people who might already be creating or buying bulk accounts and spamming them with software like Tweet Attacks, and who are looking for alternative ways to make money from Twitter.

    You can get 1000 accounts and burn through them in a couple of days with @reply spam; or you can build them out with spammy keywords and backlinks, and make money from those accounts for a bit longer.

    It's not a noob method. It's not exactly rocket science either but it does require a little bit of SEO knowledge.

    Something else to note is that you don't actually have to create the accounts with the correct keywords because Twitter lets you change usernames later. So, another way of doing this is to procure existing accounts and simply swap out the username and profile information with information that reflects your target (in this case, CPA).

    i've never really seen a twitter profile rank for anything, so your experience has been different?

    Absolutely, type in Yung Berg on Google, as a good example. It's similar to the way YT vids get boosted rankings

    This is an excellent share of a method for me since im still relatively new to the twitter game.

    Best of all, I thought of a twist to this already that I think would work really well hehehe :D

    Well to not sound like a noob.. To get a bit more SEO love also note that tweets also get a bit of SE love, so try to SEO optimize those as well if you plan on doing this a bit more manual.

    Not to mention this method could go hand in hand to seriously help out a new site receiving only a bit of traffic. And I could tell a million ways why.... :chicken_w

    Great Share Autumn, thanks given! :D

    Direct them to a website instead, heck even a blogger if you're short on funds, web 2.0..... Then again you could blank the referrer, use a CPA redirection.... Then use that to promote whatever you want... Plenty of ways to get around that.

    Just because Autumn mentioned its an Ad tweet doesn't mean its a direct link to an offer anyway...

    Matter of fact I think that plan is seriously committing suicide atm....

    Cheers!:D

    Be very careful. The networks are really starting to crack down on twatter traffic.
