Step 1: Identify your niche on Twitter

 Before you start selling exclusive content to your Twitter followers, you need to determine what niche or industry you’re in. Maybe you’re a fitness trainer and want to provide exclusive video content to help your Twitter followers reach their fitness goals. Or maybe you’re a graphic designer and want to sell exclusive design tutorials. Whatever your niche on Twitter is, make sure your exclusive membership content provides value to your followers.
 Take MemberSpace customer, Withsara, for example. This business is in the fitness niche and promotes their online workout classes in their Twitter bio. Their followers expect consistent, valuable content to help them on their health and wellness journey.

Step 2: Determine what kind of content you will create

Once you’ve determined your niche, you need to decide on the type of content you want to sell. Will it be videos, e-books, tutorials, or something else? Consider what type of content you’re the most passionate about creating and that your followers will be willing to pay for.

And if you’re not sure what kind of content will resonate with your followers, use Twitter’s interactive features like polls to engage your followers and gather feedback. 

Ask them what kind of content they would like to see on your membership site or involve them in the decision-making process. This not only shows that you value their opinions but also helps you create content that resonates with your followers’ interests and preferences.

MemberSpace customer and relationship coach, Jillian Turecki offers her Twitter followers multiple kinds of content.  She promotes her podcast on her Twitter page, but also offers followers the opportunity to join her paid membership, purchase online courses, and access her self-guided workbooks.

  1. Sign up for a free MemberSpace account.

Clarissa is a food blogger who shares cooking tips with her Twitter followers. She has built a decent following over the years and wants to start monetizing this community, so she decides to sell exclusive content on her membership site She knows some of her Twitter followers are beginners and probably won’t pay for access to her resources, so she includes a free plan to accommodate everyone.

  • Silver Plan – For $10 a month, these members get access to everything in the free plan, plus a weekly newsletter with even more advice and recipes

Step 4: Promote your content to your Twitter followers

Once your membership program is set up, it’s time to start promoting your exclusive content to your Twitter followers! 

Here are some ideas to get your Twitter followers interested in your membership content:

  • Use Twitter to tease upcoming content, like a clip from your latest podcast or a video montage from your online course.
  • Add a link to your membership in your Twitter bio or a pinned tweet to direct interested followers to your website.
  • Offer your Twitter followers limited-time discounts or early access to your membership. 
  • Engage with your followers and ask for feedback on what content they want to see from you. The more you can involve your audience in the process, the more invested they’ll be in your success.
  • Leverage Twitter ads to reach a wider audience and promote your membership.
