Ad.ly is the newest advertising network for Twitter, in which normal users like you and me are making big bucks simply by tweeting out sponsored messages. Say what you will about spamming your followers’ timeline, you’re making money!
The network launched their affiliate program on Tuesday, which pays you 12% of what those you refer make. Pretty sweet, huh?
You set your own prices and categories for your tweets, which attract advertisers in your niche. You act as a publisher and can approve and write the tweet before sending it out.
Of course, those with more followers end up making more, right? Not so. Ad.ly has been filtering out the fake followers and going after the “real” followers on your list to promote to advertisers. That means if you have 100 followers who actually click on links you send out, as opposed to 10,000 followers who are bots and don’t click on anything, the user with 100 followers could end up making more.
The website is also holding a contest and giving away a 13″ Macbook Pro to the person who gets the most eligible twitterers to sign up for Ad.ly (2nd and 3rd place will get an iPod Touch). An eligible twitterer is someone you refer that has been a Twitter user for at least 120 days and has at least 50 followers. The contest started on Monday, November 16th at 12 a.m. PST and ends on Sunday, December 13th at 12 p.m. PST.
