I found out about MyLikes from Heather from our Power 50 Blogging Group.  MyLikes is another MMO (Make Money Online) service which allows advertisers to list products or services and people to sign up and promote those products and services for a set cost per click rate.  You can promote on your website or blog, or twitter and the clicks are tracked through MyLikes shortening service.

When I first signed up with my twitter account, it gave me an estimate of what my CPC and total earnings per campaign could be which was .52 cents per click and $6.26 cents estimated earnings per tweet.  I decided to test it out by promoting itself as my first tweet with the included affiliate link and will give a report in the future on how accurate this is. is very similar in many ways to the SocialSpark CPC program in that you get paid per click, not per tweet (like SponsoredTweets).  You also have the option to tweet or promote as often as you like for the life of the Advertisers campaign.

You can watch my video demonstration of MyLikes here:

The program will never automatically tweet on your account behalf unless you configure it to auto tweet, I found a setting which lets you schedule tweets for every day at a set time, but I think this is a violation of Twitters ToS and I can’t see this remaining in the program much longer.

There weren’t a huge list of advertisers to choose from when I signed up but I found a few advertisers that looked within my niche and category that I might test and promote.  This is definitely a new thing to try and if you have a particularly large reach on your twitter profile or your blog you can make some decent change I would imaging from running multiple campaigns at the same time.  Just remember not to over promote or do too many sponsored plugs your or will hurt your reputation and lose followers fast.

MyLikes isn’t just for getting paid to promote things, you can promote anything on MyLikes for free which helps build your “favorites” so that people get a feel for the types of things you like and recommend.  You will want to build an accurate list and I recommend you have at least 10-20 likes before you start doing some sponsored likes.  Make sure you don’t only have sponsored likes either, or you will reduce the effectiveness of your MyLikes account and reputation.

I show some examples of products I endorse for free, because I like them:

So if you use Ad.Ly, SponsoredTweets or any other CPC campaign to try and earn a little money with your twitter profile you mine as well sign up for and see if you can add a little bit to your earnings.

I also highly recommend you read the review of MyLikes on Wassup  Blog where the reviewer lists the reasons why they like the service and compare to other ways to make money online.  They also point out how because MyLikes shows all of the products/services you like publicly it helps keep people honest and encourages people to only promote things they actually like.  MyLikes and the advertiser can also reject if they do not approve of the way you are promoting or talking about a sponsored product.

  • Thanks for the link luv. I can say after only a week that it looks pretty damn good. So far I’m liking it a whole lot. Didn’t know you could do freebies so thanks for pointing that out.
    .-= Sire´s last blog ..The Lighter Side Of Blogging =-.

  • I had not heard about My Likes yet. I have done a few tweets with SponsoredTweets but am curious to see what I could get for the pay per click like My Likes does. Thanks for the info!

    • Give it a try, can’t hurt! It does take some time to do some free likes to establish your account, I don’t recommend using it only for sponsored likes.

  • Ben@Blue Laptop

    About how much do you make from it per month?
    .-= Ben@Blue Laptop´s last blog ..Blue Laptop Skins =-.

    • I have only been using it for about 4 days and am up to $4.90 cents so far. But I am only putting about 15 minutes per day into the program right now by doing a bunch of free MyLikes to build up my profile.

  • I am also using them and tehy are only giving me 5 cents per click. Any tips on how can I increase my income?

  • I am totally blank when it comes to understanding how you can actually make money on Twitter, but apparently it is possible?

    How many followers do you need before you can actually monetize your twitter account?

    I have another question, which I assume you could answer, I have Facebook page with close to 1000 followers can I some how monetize that?

    Cheers, Morten

    • I just signed up for MyLikes about 4 days ago and made $4.90 from it, .90 cents was from a sponsored like (3 clicks at 30 cents per click) the other $4 was from 1 referral signup. You only need about 100-200 twitter followers to start making some money with you can make a dollar here or there for tweets, but to make really good money you need several thousand followers, tens of thousands to make more than $50 a month with twitter. Most programs that pay CPC only pay you for clicks from Twitter, they don’t do the same for facebook (I don’t know why, and I don’t know what would happen if you put a sponsored CPC link on facebook, would you get paid for the clicks?)

  • Wow that is a lot of followers, I guess with my numbers I could only earn a cent or so (-:

    In terms of Facebook I have no clue, for now I use it to sum up my blogs post from all of my blogs, it seams some rather wants to follow Facebook instead of the actual blogs!

    • I know people who earn about $5 per week with only 150+ followers with sponsoredtweets, and you can probably get same with MyLikes if you have loyal followers who click stuff 🙂

  • Dennis Edell @ DirectSalesMarketing

    Another reminder, so thanks! This is another one I signed on to and forgot about. 🙂

  • Sounds like a pretty interesting concept.

    I wish places like SponsoredTweets and this had more things that would be relevant to my DJ niche though 🙁

    • I have seen some music related opps on SocialSpark actually, there are a few occasionally. I have seen a few SponsoredTweets for like concert promotions and tours occasionally, but rare.

    • MyLikes also has some music related software and apps that pay .10 cents or more per click right now, you should check it out.

  • How do you set up the site to earn for the click/tweet?

    • When you join the site, you just click on sponsored and you will be presented with ways to earn from promoting the product/service.

    Mylikes is one of the best sites to earn money from social media. I have earned good money through this site

  • It is possible to make money with social networks, but the webmaster must have a prominent personality to have people around the network, and of course his page
