Making Money With Twitter: Review of Tweet Tank

 In the last couple weeks, as a result of boredom with what I was doing, I have been experimenting with making money from Twitter. This led to me purchasing Tweet Tank. I did this after vowing to myself that I would not buy any more make money online products for the time being.

What is Tweet Tank?
Tweet Tank is a system for adding more followers on Twitter and making money through selling products as an affiliate. Basically, your one off payment buys you access to the website where you can manage your Twitter activities. Unlike other membership sites you are not expected to pay month after month - just one payment buys you lifetime membership.

How Does Tweet Tank Work?
There are eight videos for you to watch which walk you through the process (you can watch six of these without actually making a purchase) and do really help in understanding how it all works.

Firstly, you need to add your Twitter account to Tweet Tank and select keywords. It will then go off and find people to follow based on your keywords. You can set how many people to follow per day - it is best to start with a fairly low number so as to avoid getting your Twitter account suspended. You need to check on your followers regularly and use the Friend Follower screen to unfollow people who are not following you.

You can then set up a number of automated updates with links to your affiliate link. You can set up to 24 per day and use different affiliate links per update if you like. It is a good idea to change these from time to time to give a bit of variety.

So as to avoid posting solely updates that are selling stuff you need to add some useful content as well. You can do this automatically with Tweet Tank by giving it some keywords and it finds some related stories to post. However, I find it more effective to use Twitterfeed and add various related news feeds. I personally get my news feeds from Moreover.

Is it Right to Have an Automated Twitter Account?
This is something that I wrestled with for a little while before paying my money. However, how I rationalise it is that most of us are subscribed to e-mail lists that provide us with a mixture of useful content and selling messages. If we want to stop receiving these then we just have to unsubscribe. Twitter accounts are no different. People have a choice as to whether to follow you or not. I personally throw in some manual updates, some retweets and generally respond to whatever going on at the time.

Can You Make Any Money With Tweet Tank?
The pitch page suggests that you could be making $500 per day. You can set up as many Twitter accounts as you like and link them to your Tweet Tank account, and I guess you would have to have a large number of accounts with a large number of followers to make that kind of money. However, I can see that it is entirely possible. My own experience is that I have been using it for three weeks and set up five accounts (just added another today), one of which has already passed the 1,000 followers mark. And, most importantly, I have already made four sales!!

I am also using it to increase my followers for the @XCashChallenge Twitter account and I have seen a marked increase in traffic as a result.

I think that Tweet Tank is well worth it and has shown that it works well for increasing Twitter followers and making money.
