Tip of the Week

Everyone is looking for ways to monetize Twitter these days. The latest effort is Tweetbucks, a startup designed to allow social media users to make money via affiliate links and CPC. Essentially a Twitter-enabled CPA network, Tweetbucks also has a nifty “custom ad-frame” that you can enable that displays ads at the top of any destination page to which you Tweet the link, paying you on a CPC basis.

Tweetbucks looks like a good way to test the waters in terms of converting followers into buyers, and a great way to reduce your follower list dramatically if you don’t use it with sensitivity and transparency.
