Build your Twitter following for fame… and fortune!
I’m a fan of John Chow. Never heard of him? Well, he lives in the same city as me and makes his living from his blog. And a really good living at that. A year and a half ago I read about his story in Entrepreneur magazine and thought it was pretty darn cool that someone in my own city had managed to make a career out of blogging. Then I had the opportunity to hear him talk live at a meetup event that I went to a few months ago and that finally pushed me over the edge to just go ahead and take the plunge and create this blog. My motivation was more the increased exposure it would give me, but the fact that I might be able to make money from it eventually was definitely a big bonus.
Well, I haven’t managed to that part yet, but John is now bringing in a second income through Twitter. He was actually on the front page of The Vancouver Sun because of it. If you want to learn more about how he does it you can read his 10 tips to make more money with sponsored tweets. I think it all just goes to show that this social media stuff isn’t just for fun or a waste of time like many people think it is. If you use it properly it can get you both rich and famous!
What do you think? Have you managed to make money from your online endeavours? Have you tried?
