How Does Twitter Make Money


Twitter Make Money has two articles on this topic. The first article focused on consumer facing changes to Twitter and the second is focused on monetization.Twitter has practiced marvelous traffic progress, and more notably has invaded into the collective awareness with constant Twitter quotes by news societies and entertainers. Twitter’s evaluation has gone up as people expect it to monetize its power with both consumers and trademarks. Here are a few of the features that would really transform the Twitter income curve.

Convey on the banners

Twitter has resisted to scale advertising revenue, as like most social sites it tries to impose peculiar add units on both its operators and supporters. From the operators’ view, things like promoted tweets or Facebook’s public adds are unpleasant to their content experience. From the supporters’ view, they cannot use their ordinary add units and track results the common way.It is simply addressed by supporting ordinary add units such as true rail skyscraper banners. In the past social years my space proved that banner advertising works on social networks, particularly social networks where a lot of people are following celebrities and media.

A lot of the former My space user base is using Twitter to follow celebrities and sports figures, and these are the kinds of users that return to banners. It will be long times before Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg can convince Mark Zuckerberg to go after banner add buys less than a year-and-a-half after he pulled Microsoft Corporation’s static units from Facebook.

Extraordinary care should be taken to ensure that when banners are presented, they are located similarly to other top sites. E.g., the notorious “dick bar” mobile banner that caused user chaos was located at the top of the Twitter application. Maximum mobile banners such as Ad Mob units are placed at the bottom of an application. Adding banners will always bring on objections, but adding banners that look like everyone else’s banners will attain resenting acceptance and will make the complainers look like monsters.
In a social flare add, the units can include tweets related to the trademark or whatever is being sponsored. Put the social into the ad unit, not the ad unit into the social. Finding the self-service dynamic add creator Flite, which lets advertisers make and transport add units related to American online Project Devil units, would make dynamic ad units that integrate tweets available to the Twitter.com as Flash units and mobile as html5 units.Twitter should let Facebook experiment with social add units, and focus on wringing up a bunch of brand banner add spend.

Monetize (Rather Than Cannibalize)


From the past few months Twitter has been going after third party Twitter application by blocking some application’s access to its API and arbitrarily changing authentication systems. Attempting to regain control of the on-ramp with which power users use Twitter is marvelous, and the Tweet Deck acquisition was a very smart move in this track.

Though, a rich developer ecosystem is a unusual treasure and should be cultivated ,rather than go after rollups like Uber Media and smaller Twitter customers, it would be better to exchange volume API access in exchange for placement of the banner adds with a income share.
Pissing off developers are never smart, consider how quickly iOS developers jumped onto Android after all of apple’s various shenanigans. This is important considering that Facebook is nurturing a rich ecosystem of third-party applications, add, and analytics vendors. It should be estimated that Twitter will add evident features like email notifications, and Twitter should notify developers of changes like this ahead of time to avoid troubled feelings.

Developers love Twitter, and Twitter should be helping them do entertaining stuff and earn money too. There are a bunch of small, self-serve add networks that could be acquired to complete this, as well as open source implementations such as OpenX. Check-ins are tiresome, but location deals are useful Twitter is one of the most used mobile application, and it could open a great income stream by allowing merchants to deliver real-time deals. Check ins are increasingly lame, but people want to know if there are deals aroun,a lot of mobile units have low conversion rates, but a built-in interstitial with a map view would lead to a lot of conversions. This option include doing a deal with Groupon Now like Loopt’s recent implementation and Foursquare’s rumored integration, or acquiring a small mobile deals company like BeThere Deals. Replace the number dickbar with the number dealbar.

The Sentiment analytics and The service tools for brands

The Web trends, which sells social, mobile and web analytics solutions to enterprises, and am continually amazed at the voracious desire dealers have for analytics, and for the new breed of analytics around social connections. No CMO on the planet is going to question a marketing budget item labeled Twitter Analytics. A lot of sentiment analysis tools such as Co Tweet, Scout Labs and Radian 6 have already been acquired. Though a new type of more powerful tools such as Crimson Hexagon are ripe for Twitter to acquire to enable social media teams to see, route and respond to Twitter conversations about their trademark, like Facebook Pages include support for broadcasting to Twitter, it is serious to also include support for Facebook and blog conversations so that trademarks can have a single, Twitter driven view of what is going on with their trademark.

Twitter should continue to sell access to its firehose of data, but delay access for a few hours to external units other than a few superior partners in order to increase the value of its own submissions.Sell lucrative sharing, trending, and tipping data. The Clear Spring and Radium One are mining what content is being shared by consumers and selling the data at a vast superior to advertisers who want to know what themes are trending and how to better target users. Twitter has one of the best opinion of this type of data and should sign profitable deals with publishers and add networks to help them better enhance their businesses.

Importantly, Twitter’s data provides a very matchless viewpoint as to how content goes viral and what types of posts, influencer re tweets, and incremental publicity could tip a movement towards a viral spread. Social scoring firms like Klout have very limited algorithms, but this type of infrastructure could be an outgrowth of achievements such as Topsy and BackType in addition to the more immediate profits described above. Mining the Twitter data will only become increasingly valuable as marketing campaigns become increasingly automatic.

Enterprise features to Twitter will be much easier than consumer facing features. Enterprise features have far fewer users, can have designed release programs such as limited early access releases, and mostly have a appealing forgiving audience in terms of time to add features and the special downtime. There is enormous opportunity in for Twitter to sell to businesses; Twitter’s roomy consumer traction, trademark mind share, and paragon trove of data offer important monetization chances in the advertising and analytic segments. Securing companies like those defined above would accelerate Twitter into every trademark’s media spend.
