So, I am half way through my 30 day challenge with Sponsored Tweets PRO, and you know… no opportunities. As promised, I went through some of the messages being said in the Sponsored Tweets forum about this and no surprise- even users with over 80,000 followers on the PRO membership are not getting opportunities.
Here are some of the responses found:
And when they ask why is this happening, especially when being a PRO member means the user is to get better exposure with the advertisers, the staff responds:
Another response around that time, by the same staff member was that basically that the paid tweet opportunities had been given to non-PRO members.
WHOA! Wait a minute here! Does this basically mean that people are paying for a service that basically is useless. If you are giving opportunities, they should be to the PRO members first, right? Hmmm… sounds funny to me. And then on top of that… in waves. I am not certain, but after Izea’s annual parties, becoming a public company with stock options, currently hiring, and even offering to sponsor Tweetups, Sponsored Tweets is doing pretty good getting advertisers.
By the way, someone commented on the post for the start of my challenge about finding more followers. I have a decent amount already, so that is not the issue. I had opportunities in the past (though they were few and far between) with Sponsored Tweets.
So far, I am leaning to Sponsored Tweets PRO = #Fail.
