It just takes 280 characters to build a business.
Twitter today is far more than just a platform for sharing thoughts, news, and memes. It has evolved into a powerful tool for individuals to make money online.
The basics rely on building a strong audience and strategically promoting your offers. But what exactly are these creators doing to make money?
In this blog post, we will dive deep into the 7 different ways there are to make money on Twitter. Buckle up!

Before making money

Before we jump into the different ways you can make money on Twitter, there are a few things you need to set up first: your Twitter profile.
Bringing people to your profile is pointless if the profile isn't optimized to convert them into followers and/or customers.
For that, you need what we call a profile funnel. Here are the elements that make a good one:
  • A trust-building profile picture
  • A header that complements all
Each of these elements helps build the audience’s trust in what you can deliver.
Once that’s set, let’s jump into the money-making.

7 Ways to make money on Twitter

These are the 7 proven ways to make money on Twitter:
Let’s dive in!

1 - Become an affiliate

Affiliating is probably one of the fastest ways to make your first $ on the internet.
The way it works is simple: you affiliate for an offer and you share that link on Twitter. Then, for every person who purchases from that link, you get a % of the profits.
Affiliating is great because you are leveraging someone else’s credibility to sell a product. Your content is just the vehicle for the product, but the credibility and the sale are done elsewhere.
If you want to dive deeper into this monetization model, check out our in-depth post.
How to make more money with affiliates and Tweet Hunter
There are many ways to promote an affiliate offer but some of the most effective is using the offer as your pinned tweet or as your link in bio.
And then there’s Tweet Hunter’s auto-plug feature.
The auto plug feature allows you to automatically post a follow-up tweet after one of your tweets when it reaches a certain amount of likes or RTs.
This feature is PERFECT for affiliate marketing. Imagine you write a tweet about AI prompts and you affiliate for an AI prompt guide.
If the tweet gets some exposure, Tweet Hunter will automatically publish a follow-up tweet promoting your affiliate offer.
It doesn’t get easier than that!

2 - Promote your own products

Some creators prefer to promote their own products instead of affiliate offers. These products can be:
  • Ebooks
  • Self-paced courses
  • Cohort-based courses
  • Templates
  • Checklists
  • Paid content (like a private newsletter)
  • And many more!
If you have your own products, then you can use the same strategy we mentioned to promote the affiliate offers but for your own.

3 - Become a ghostwriter

A ghostwriter is a writer that gets hired to create content on behalf of someone else.
Ghostwriters are very popular on Twitter. Many popular accounts use them (more than you think). And that’s great news because it’s an opportunity:
  • Ghostwriting can be very lucrative. Ghostwriters are usually well-paid because they work with people who already have some sort of successful business
  • You’ll become a better writer. When you write every day, you get better. And with ghostwriting, that’s all you’ll do
We wrote an entire guide on How To Become a Ghostwriter, so check it out!
Tweet Hunter also has a Marketplace where you can find Twitter Ghostwriters or, if you are one, you can also offer your services there.

4 - Promote your services

Twitter is a great place to promote your services. To do it effectively, your content needs a few things:
  • Clear value proposition. What you offer needs to be ultra clear, either on your bio or your call to action. If you can sum it up in one sentence, better.
  • Expert content. This type of content is content geared to prove your expertise on a particular topic. It might not go viral, but if done right, it will get customers on your door.
  • A call to action. People who sell services often redirect prospects to a free call to see if they are a good fit for the offer.
The content format that better suits this is Twitter threads. You can go a bit deeper than tweets and end up with a call to action on your service page.

Another common service offer that we see a lot on Twitter is 1:1 consultations. Whether it’s 30 minutes, 45, or 60, you can offer your time in exchange for a fee.
An interesting way to go about it is using the auto-DM feature on Tweet Hunter.
With the auto-DM feature, anyone who performs a certain action on your tweet will get an automated DM from you. You could pitch your consulting offer with one tweet and ask anyone interested to comment with a certain keyword.
Then let Tweet Hunter take care of the rest.

5 - Sponsored posts

Even if it’s not the most popular platform to do so, you can work with brands on Twitter.
These types of sponsored posts are more common than you think, but you need some sort of an audience for them.
Still, if you have a niche audience, you can make a list of the brands in your space and send a DM to pitch a collaboration.

6 - Build an email list

Twitter is the best social platform to transfer followers into email subscribers. Then, making a sale on email is often way easier.
If you are on the fence about why you should build that email list, here are a few reasons:
  • Direct channel: An email list provides a personalized communication channel with your audience where it’s easier to gain their trust.
  • Ownership: When you build an email list, you own and control the contact information of your subscribers. In contrast, on social media platforms like Twitter, you are subject to their algorithms and policy changes.
  • Targeted marketing: An email list allows you to segment your subscribers based on their interests so you can send personalized messages when it matters most to make a sale.
  • Higher conversion rates: People on your email list have willingly opted in and expressed interest in your products or services.

7 - Enable subscriptions

The Super Follows feature introduced by Twitter in 2021 is now re-branded as Twitter Subscriptions. The feature allows creators to charge a monthly subscription fee from their subscribers.
It’s a great way to start monetizing your presence but also to build deeper relationships with your biggest fans, as Arvid does 👇

Twitter is a huge opportunity

With the right strategies in place and an optimized profile, you can easily tap into Twitter's immense potential for money-making.
If you manage to stay active, consistent, and responsive on the platform, you can position yourself as an authority in your niche, drive traffic to your offers, and establish a strong online presence that translates into $$$.
So, whether you're a solopreneur, a small business owner, or an aspiring influencer, Twitter is a platform where the convergence of opportunities and revenue-making potential make it an ideal place to turn your online efforts into a profitable venture.
And don’t forget that Tweet Hunter is your best companion for it!
