The past couple of weeks, I’ve been working with a program that is proving it’s worth to me. Social networking is a tool that many use to make connections and promote their blogs and services. As social networking grows, many are looking for ways to make money with their network.
One of the fastest social networking platforms is twitter. I’ve previously reviews some ways to make money on twitter. However, one of the best ways I’ve found to make money on twitter has been with a pay per click ad network through Mylikes.
I’ve tried out and still use several other programs to make money through twitter, such as Sponsored Tweets, but one problem is that these other services focus mainly on making money through twitter. The difference with Mylikes is that their program expands your ability to earn money to your other social networking sites.
How do you earn money with Mylikes?
Step 1: Sign up
Well, the first step is to sign up for free and become an influencer:
Step 2: Fill out your profile
Once you sign up, Mylikes will have you fill out some profile information, such as your linked social networking accounts and some of your interests:
Mylikes uses this information to create an engagement score for your account. Your engagement score is based on a variety of factors, such as your tweets, retweets and other linked accounts. It’s vital that you fill out your profile as much as possible. The higher your engagement score, the more you get paid.
The other advantage of connecting different accounts is that when you pick something to promote, Mylikes will push it out across all your linked accounts.
Make sure you connect your social networking accounts!
I’m sure you’ve noticed that the life cycle of a tweet on twitter can be measured in seconds if one has a lot of followers. My twitter stream scrolls by so fast that I have to pause it to read a tweet. However, a post on Facebook or tumbler has longevity. Your ad has the potential of getting more views over time.
Step 3: Choose your Likes
After you’ve filled out your profile, you can begin picking items to promote. Mylikes calls this becoming an influencer and you basically pick products to “like.” Mylikes appears to have a steady influx of advertisers and many pay out a fair amount per click.
When you pick an advertiser that you “like,” you will be taken to a page to schedule your tweet or post. You have the option to send out your ad immediately or schedule a time to tweet your ad. This allows you to select and schedule several at a time.
Mylikes does two things that I really like when you select an ad to promote.
- The first is that they encourage you to visit the sponsor yourself by paying you for that first click. This way you are encouraged to learn more about the product so you can create a better ad, and you are rewarded for going through to their site. Also, the payouts are a fair amount. I’ve been paid up to $1.10 per click.
- The second thing that I like is that once you pick an advertiser, Mylikes will continue to automatically post your ad once a day until the advertiser’s account runs out. They cap the automatic retweets to once a day so that you aren’t spamming, but you can still manually send out more if you desire. If you find a product that is popular, you can really maximize your profits.
Mylikes pays out consistently
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of these high payout thresholds. I’m still waiting on my Sponsored Tweets account to hit that $50 payout. Then when you hit the amount, sometimes you have to wait a month to get your money. Not with Mylikes.
Mylikes pays out at a threshold of $2.00 every Friday. That’s right! Every Friday, I get paid by Mylikes. $2 is such an easy target to hit I’ve only been signed up for 2 weeks and haven’t missed a payment yet. At this rate, Mylikes is going to turn into one of my more consistent paying ad networks.
The reality is that Mylikes has a steady stream of quality advertisers. I was initially skeptical when they say that the average influencer earns $50 a month. While my first week with Mylikes only earned me about $3, my second week earned me almost $9. I’m looking to earn more during my third week. At this pace, I will get close to that $50 payout my first month with Mylikes.
Well, are you convinced yet? Mylikes is quickly turning into one of my favorite advertising networks for social media. If you’re not already using them, you should head over and sign up. They are free to join and waiting to make money for you!
