    Hi everyone. :)

    Hope you're having a great 2013! Been exciting for me thus far.

    Anyway I have a Twitter account with a little over 12,000 followers (growing organically and with TweetAdder now). They're all based around one specific content area. This content is American college football focusing on one team. They're extremely responsive, retweet, favorite, and discuss most anything put on the account concerning college football.

    I am having a hard time figuring out the best way to start getting a steady flow of income from this account, but feel like something has to be out there. Any help would be nice. If you really think you can help but need the Twitter account name please PM me and we can discuss there or on Skype. I guess I'm also open to partnerships as I'm really looking to begin monetizing this account.

    Thanks in advance for your help! :)

    This is the craziest quote I have seen on BHW. I have made TONS of money from strictly Twitter traffic. OP, don't listen to the negativity. You need to find an affiliate offer or CPA offer relevant to your niche and you should be able to milk your followers for some cash. With only 12k followers, you wont make a living off them, but you should be able to earn something off them.

    Sports fans in general are very passionate about their teams. Why not setup eCommerce site selling jerseys and other team related paraphernalia? If not that find some affiliate programs for that. I'm sure there are also some aff programs for fantasy team or even actual betting.

    Create a estore selling Jerseys and other fan products. You dont have to even have the products. There are plenty of sites out there that will manage the product manufacturing and shipping.

    Make a small e-store around this specific team and start selling related itens :) u should find some suppliers @ ebay or something, maybe dropshippers so u will not invest anytihng.

    Good luck

    pretty much what the last post says :)

    i agree.
    or just set up a blog site that provides content for your niche.
    update it daily and monetize with some banner ads.
    there are many things you can try, just split test.
    install g analytics and find out what type of ads will convert best.
