How to make money on Kik?

Kik (or Kik Messenger to be more precise) is a mobile app that became a real hit during its launch in 2010. This app managed to get more than 2 million users in about three weeks. Today, there are more than 320 million people around the globe who use this application. Their number is constantly growing.

Kik messenger is not used only as a chat app (which was the developer’s intention in the beginning), this app has become a real social media network used on mobile devices. With the help of Kik, people can send pictures, share videos or engage in group conversations. One of the main reasons why this app became so popular is its availability- people can use Windows, Android and iOS-based mobile devices in order to use this application.

In the recent period many people have started using Kik in order to make money. The good news is that there are more than one ways to do that, so make sure to try all of them and see which one suits you the best.

To start with, you can use the power of paid link shortening services. There are many services that allow link shortening and pay users for every successful click. The first thing that you should do is to select a reliable, established and secure service. Use the major search engines to read reviews and browse some forums to find out more about the options you have. Once you create an account, it is crucial to find valuable content. Don’t try to fool users because this action will only get your account removed from Kik and from the link shortening service. Since most of the users found on Kik are young, you should focus on entertaining images, trending news and viral videos. You will have to do some thorough research before you find such content. If you have your own website you can use this service to drive traffic and to get money too. You can share this link with your friends, but also with other people who are not your friends because Kik is actually a social media network. Focus on getting more views because these paid services usually pay per number of clicks, not by the user’s location.

Furthermore, you can also use an affiliate marketing program. This is not very difficult although it sounds daunting. Kik is a powerful network and it can definitely help you make money. In its essence, affiliate marketing is promotion of your own or other people’s/ companies’ products or services. Try to find the right audience and start your campaign.  Find kik usernames to reach out to a wider audience. Use engaging messages in order to get Kik users interested in your offer.

Finally, you can use some Pay per Download or PPD networks too. Like we’ve said before, Kik is mostly used by young people. They are the category of people who are always interested in downloading video and audio files and applications and this is exactly what you can offer by using a PPD network. Find some trending topics and try to find files that should be interesting for the audience.
