My Posterous Blog Has A New Address..yAy

Thanks to GoDaddy coupons shared by some awesome people on twitter, I managed to buy two domains.Never played around with Web as such, so DNS mapping and A-Name records seemed all greek to me.

Turned to people for help and I am making a little headway.

Moved by Finance Blogger Blog to www.gettingmoneywise.com !! I am still using the blogger free hosting, but plan to move it on self-hosting and switch to Wordpress soon.

It always feels good to have online real estate on one's own name.Always wanted to do it, but blame it on my rather common err. popular name finding a domain with my name has always been difficult.But, as luck would have it , I finally managed to find one!!

agarwalankit.com :-) I did not know what i am gonna do with the domain but i wanted it none the less.So, till i find a better use of it , i figured it might be worthwhile to map it to my posterous blog.

I am open to suggestions for making better use of the domain.I initially thought of using a free hosting service and putting one Online Visiting Card kinda thing on it.Card.ly looks good.But then, I am gonna hold it for sometime and probably look for better options to use the domain.

As of now, i am happy to have bought a domain with my name :-) Some ego-boost that is.lol

The Follower Friendly Way To Make Money On Twitter

Twitter has been the toast of the town ever since it went mainstream.It has re-defined how we connect on the internet marketplace.More than anything, it has become the best hunting ground for online marketers to push their products to the masses.

However, Making Money On Twitter is something that has been fraught with skeptism.A lot of advertising networks have evolved on twitter.The most famous being Be-A-Magpie which helps you monetize your twitter profile.They select the advertisements based on the words you generally use in your tweet and then send ads via your twitter stream.

sponsored_tweets_make_money1 Based on the number of followers you have, the payout can be as big as $2-$3 for a single tweet.However, the biggest problem with Magpie is that the same ad tweets are sent numerous times.Hence, it become irritating for your followers.

However, a new network Sponsored Tweets solves this problem very nicely.It is highly customizable and you pretty much get all the options to configure the ads you want to let out through your twitter stream.Here are some of the key benefits

  • Suggestion For Charge Per Tweet. You can override this value if you want.
  • Category Selection – This is like Contextual Advertising.If you are in technology, then the ads relevant to technology might actually be helpful for your followers.
  • No automated Advertisements You are notified of the advertisements and you can choose to approve them before they are approved.
  • Configure the Tweet Content This is the biggest differentiator which separates them from other services.You can actually write the tweet yourself and make it sound unlike the usual clich├ęd advertisement.
  • Payment via Paypal The payment is also from Paypal.As soon you reach $50 in earnings, you can transfer the payment to your account.

I have recently joined it and though the advertisement frequency is not that high, the pay per tweet is decent.I have been playing with a rate of $1-$1.5 per tweet.

As i said, the ad frequency may not be as high as magpie but the ads are less instrusive to your followers and over time with an increasing following, you can make decent money through Sponsored Tweets.Infact, Power twitters are making anything between $200-$300 ‘s for a single tweets.

Sign Up For Sponsored Tweets

Do let me know if you had success with any other twitter monetization techniques.Have you crossed your first payout from Sponsored Tweets.

Magpie Lets You Make Money With Twitter-Online Treasure

Can Twitter users monetize their Twitter account?Sounds Strange since there is hardly any margin left when you only have 140 characters to deal with.Unlike Blogs where you can run contextual ads with services like Adsense,Bidvertiser or banner sales,Twitter monetization looks a distant dream.
The dream has been put into realization with Magpie-An European company with a business model similar to the Pay Per Post for Blogs. Magpie will pay you to send ad-tweets through your time line. They auto-select the ad-tweets based on the keyword selection and then post it with your twitter public timeline.Revenue Sharing happens like most of the other ad networks and the payouts are pretty decent.
Whats good about Magpie is, you get paid without doing anything.It also gives you almost complete control over the kind of ads that are served.This makes it more friendly since your friends/followers will not be bombarded with irrelevant information.

  • You can decide the frequency of the ad-tweets. It can be as frequent as every other tweet or one ad-tweet after 20 tweets.
  • You can choose to append a custom message to differentiate the magpie tweet if you wish.Generally,it is better to append the magpie tweets with hashtag #magpie in the beginning of the tweet.
  • With the revenue mechansim catching up and advertisers increasingly finding value in twitter based promotions,magpie has come up with lot of monetization models like per view,per sale,per click,per lead etc.Again, you have complete control of what you wanna see in your timelime
  • They also have an affiliate program with as much as 30% revenue share.If any advertisers signs up with your refferal link, you stand to get 30% of the transaction fees all year long.
All and all,it looks a pretty decent service to give a shot at.A small sample earnings page of my magpie account looks promising.
