Paid to tweet or sponsored tweets have been something that has popped up majorly in the past year, especially since Twitter has really exploded onto the mainstream. Basically paid to tweet is as it says. Usually you will get the final say on what goes through your own social network stream and all these sites require full disclosures, which is great since the laws on endorsements have changed for both bloggers and social network users. Below I have listed a few sites that offer these services for user looking to make a little cash. Although I may have an account with each, none of them contain my referral. If you plan to join, and like to use my referral, please ask me via my contact form and I will send my referral link.
RevTwt: I have really never been paid by RevTwt, though I do not doubt their services. The problem is that their opportunities come in increments below $1 per tweet. Even their cost per followers is quite low, which makes it almost impossible to make anything with this service.
Twittad: Twittad has both paid to tweet services and also replacing twitter backgrounds with full ads. The user can submit and search topics that are relevant to their Twitter stream conversations and choose ads which best fit. The payout is okay, but nothing to impress. Opportunities for those who stay true to their interests may not be lucky as those who do not give a care.
Be-A-Magpie: Has been promising and is the first paid to tweet system I joined. I was a bit skeptical, but it does pay out and I have gotten a fair amount of opportunities. The thing is that opportunities are usually in groups, or it seems there is a time when more opportunities come through my stream. In the past Be-A-Magpie has been a bit funky with getting tweets out, but apparently that has been fixed.
SponsoredTweets: Opened just a couple months ago and by far is the best program I have tried. It is ran by Izea, creator of Pay Per Post, Social Spark and other sites. The system seems to be great and their support is right on top of anything that might go wrong or if anyone has any questions. I have not had to wait too long for opportunities, but I am thinking compared to other paid to tweet sites, this one gets more business because it has a company with influential and trustworthy people running it. Payouts are not hard to obtain and I like how their system allows you to list your interests and you can even have opportunities in which you decide how your twitter ads will be displayed – of course with a disclosure intact. This company requires full disclosure.
After so many people asking, I thought I would add my experience with these sites.
Any other sites I should check out that I missed? Do you use any paid to tweet services?
