While I am a regular user of Twitter, I've always felt that somehow I wasn't utilizing the site to its fullest potential. Twitter is fun and all, but there's so much more to it than the usual "Going out to lunch now."
Geekpreneur's "99 Ways to Make Money Using Twitter" is a fun book to read and get ideas from, and it's more than just the typical "ideas book" flooding the market everywhere. Besides explaining what the idea is, each method the book gives has a section on how to do it, what to do to get started, and some tips to get you closer to success. At the end of each entry is a model to follow, which links to a Twitter account so you can see exactly what an actual person is doing. You don't see that in every idea book.
I'm already starting to implement the strategies in this book, and I think it'll really make a difference in my wallet as well as my Twitter account itself.
The editors from Geekpreneur did a great job putting this book together. I learned a lot from it and would be shocked if they left anything out when it comes to making money on twitter.
This book is aimed at all kinds of readers from the lone tweeter to a business owner. It gives 99 ways that you can make money from your twitter account. There is no filler, these are 99 real ways. The reader will have to choose what fits their personality and audience.
Some examples are: Direct selling. Selling advertising tweets through magpie, betweeted or tweetad. Following the best stock pickers and investing with them. Bartering with other twitterers. Being an expert and signing up to sell your tweets. Affiliate marketing. Find a better paying job through twitter job listings. Create and sell a twitter app. Drive traffic to your blog or website for advertising income. Be a ghost twitterer.
Along with 89 other ideas. Some excellent, but all possible.
Each idea is rated for level of difficulty, skills required, and income potential.
This book really taught me a great deal about twitter and how to make money using the service.
The only negative I would say: is good grief guys get a proof reader. There were typos on almost every other page of the book. They were even distracting from the reading at times.
But regardless the information was five stars and I highly recommend for those interested in monetizing twitter even before the site monetizes itself.
This is a great book for those who are just starting out in the Twitter world, and are looking to use Twitter as a marketing tool. I swear, every time I thought there couldn't be anymore suggestions, I'd turn the page and there was another..... then I remembered that the title is "99 Ways To Make Money on Twitter". So there are 99 suggestions, from how to get traffic going to your blog using Twitter, to becoming a ghost twitterer.
I've already implemented a few of the suggestions on my Twitter account, like using the directories to get the word out about your Twitter, and "following" people that are like minded.
"99 Ways to Make Money Using Twitter" delivers on a simply stated title. The information provided here not only works as a handy guide to deciphering this newly minted blog site, but also a well rounded addition to your marketing strategy library.
If you are a current business owner looking to promote your product or service to a newer, ever changing audience, they have a chapter for you. If you want to start a business and need some pointers, look this way for several well placed ones. Not interested in "business" at all? There are still many sections of this book that will come in handy. Maybe you just want to connect with others that share your interests, or perhaps you are looking for financial aid assistance, maybe you are simply trying to figure out the "beast" that is Twitter...Geekpreneur helps to shed a light on these as well as other topics in a straight forward manner. They format each chapter in the classic "who-what-why-how" method for easy translation by professionals (and non) at any level.

So if you are interested in using Twitter to market your present business or start a totally new one, then this is the book for you.
99 Ways to Make Mooney Using Twitter is a perfect, perfect book for me. I have been on Twitter quite a few tims and find myself completely lost and definitely feeling as though I am "not doing it right".
Along comes this book with easy to read sections - first the idea or the "way" to use Twitter then some handy tips and easy to understand ways to start off and do it correctly. This book flows and clearly showed me ways of using Twitter that I never even thought of.
Its clearly written, non technical jargon - its obviously written for the lay person (which I definitely AM).
I am not sure if I can make money off Twitter, but this book has certainly inspired me to give it a try and at the very least, I will be able to better use Twitter now.
