23-Year-Old Makes $500K a Year Tweeting Out Facts

23-Year-Old Makes $500K a Year Tweeting Out Facts | Peace sticks | Scoop.it

What if you got paid to tweet?No, we’re not talking about handling a company’s social media. We’re talking big bucks, hundreds of thousands of dollars, just for typing a few characters, adding a link, and clicking “send.”That’s the business 23-year-old Kris Sanchez, who tweets under the account@UberFacts, a Twitter account that tweets — you guessed it — facts, to 7.2 million followers.Last year, he made $US500,000 for tweeting sponsored links, according to Fast Company. The links, when clicked by his followers, earn him between $US.01-.03/click. Multiply that by a few sponsored links a day, a couple of hundred thousand eager followers, and 365 days in the year, and you’re rolling in money....

Now that's a social media twit!

Alaina Es's curator insight, October 21, 2014 3:52 PM

Twitter is one of the social media platforms that allow for multiple interactions amongst companies and consumers. Companies mainly use this platform as an informational source to get their brand name out there, however, 23-year-old Kris Sanchez, who tweets under the account @UberFacts has learned to utilize Twitter as more of a business platform on top of being informative. Kris has formed an impressive 7.2 million followers and I can happily say, I am one out of that gigantic number. The links that are clicked by his followers earn him between $0.01-0.03/click. Multiply that by even half the followers and he’s looking at $72,000 worst case and $216,000 best case. That’s more than I would make for my annual salary working my butt off and all he has to do is type a few interesting characters, add a link and press “send.” On top of that, Sanchez is tweeting 60-70 times a day. There is also an app which is said to bring in $60,000 a week in ad revenue. This man was smart enough to make a living off of something that others do for free.

How To Make $500,000 A Year On Twitter

How To Make $500,000 A Year On Twitter | Peace sticks | Scoop.it

UberFacts founder Kris Sanchez has turned his addictive Twitter feed into a wildly lucrative business. But not everyone's buying it.Today he says he makes about $500,000 a year just from sponsored links. The way this works is that a company called Social Reactor, which pairs social media influencers with advertisers, supplies him with galleries or other web pages that he links to in his Tweets. He gets paid for every click those pages receive. Then there are the branded deals he’s done with companies like Ford and Paramount, wherein a simple tweet, accompanied by a link and a hashtag, becomes a virtual slot machine, gushing out thousands to tens of thousands of dollars. Plus the apps. The iOS app, which has been downloaded 1.5 million times, is estimated to generate $60,000 a week from advertising, though that has not yet been implemented.Sanchez is a “special breed," according to Scott Jones, the CEO of ChaCha, which owns Social Reactor. "It’s pretty rare to make that much [money]," Jones says.The reason Sanchez is “on the upper end of the pay scale,” Jones says, is “partially because he has a big follower base, but more importantly, his audience is highly engaged. They stay for an average of more than 14 page views a visit. So if it's a gallery of 10 images, they're going to look at the 10 and then four (pages) of something else."...
