Well, I am not so sure how breaking this will be to you, but it certainly is for me. SponsoredTweets as you may all probably have heard of is a form to make money with Twitter. Ethics aside, sponsored tweets is a legitimate way to earn some additional income from your Twitter account, and there are several ways for you to maximize your earnings using this platform, while maintaining your reputation intact. You can find some information here or just about anywhere else out there on the sphere.
Making Money With Twitter Easier With SponsoredTweets
As I have explained before on my to make money online you must complete the cycle post, you can only conclude that you have actually made money once you get paid. Getting paid is the end result of your online business efforts and as you all know, the most difficult part to get paid is by reaching the minimum payout or threshold.
Up until recently, SponsoredTweets threshold was $50, an amount that does not seem high enough for some, but quite difficult to reach for many. This is particularly true if you have decided to use this form on multiple Twitter accounts. For long, there was a strong consensus from users of this program requesting Izea (owner of SponsoredTweets) to lower the minimum payout, alleging that other competitors have lower minimums, such as MyLikes ($2).
Hold and behold, Izea listened and today while checking one of my accounts, that was almost there, I decided to again to hit that “withdraw” button and to my surprise, the standard screen saying “you can withdraw via Paypal once your balance reaches $50 has disappeared. You are now allowed to withdraw your hard earned money under $50. Although I have tried to look for an official statement about this, I really did not go to that much of a trouble but rather, tested it in one of my accounts as mentioned earlier, to see how it works.
The Bad: To withdraw any amount under $50 (not sure if there is a new minimum), you will be charged a $2 flat fee. I guess this is a form Izea found to cover for the cost of transferring money to your Paypal account.
The Good: And I mean very good. The process of requesting the funds is so easy even my grandmother can do it 🙂 But that’s not the good part. The good part is, you get paid almost in Real Time (Twitter like). Yes, you get paid via Paypal minutes later after hitting the withdraw button. I have received confirmation from Paypal minutes later. No “catch” here. You request, you pay the fee (deducted from your balance) and you get paid. Cycle complete.
So, if you are one of those that have been struggling to reach the $50 threshold or those who believe that the money you earned should be available in your pocket, this change will in my opinion make many people happy.
That’s it. Are you immediately going to withdraw your money once you leave a comment here to tell us if you liked this move from Izea? Not a SponsoredTweet publisher yet? What are waiting for? Hit this shameless referral link to sign-up 🙂
