How to Get Paid To Tweet About Summer Music Festivals

Summer Music Festival

Most people have heard Confucius’ quote, “Find a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life” – but did you know that the average person can literally do this by getting paid to tweet? They can. For anyone who loves music and has an affinity for broadcasting their thoughts on Twitter, Instagram and other social media outlets, there is an opportunity to literally make money by going to music festivals and tweeting about them. In fact, getting paid to tweet could net you quite bit of money as long as you’re the winner of StubHub’s recent promotion.

StubHub, a ticket resale website, has put together a killer contest for social media gurus who love music and love to travel. They plan on hiring one lucky winner, a #FestivalPro, to broadcast their experiences via social media and pay them a whopping $5,000 to do it. In fact, not only does the winner of the promotional contest get paid to tweet and share all their awesome, hot summer fun, but they also receive an all-expenses paid summer music festival “tour,” including transportation and accommodations for not just the six fantastic music festivals on the itinerary, but also for the included tours of StubHub headquarters in Alabama and San Francisco.

So, where do you go? While on this summer dream job, which StubHub has labeled “The most Instagram-worthy summer of your life,” which you’ll be doing all “on StubHub’s dime,” you will be stopping in six fabulous cities. The music tour includes getting out to Gulf Shores, Alabama, for the Hangout Music Fest, attending Napa’s BottleRock in California, hitting up the Governors Ball in New York, enjoying the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, attending Bonnaroo in Manchester, and joining other music fans at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. While you’re there, you’ll get to enjoy the music and everything else that goes along with attending large, live music events, and all you have to do is share your good times through tweets posting images on the social media outlets.

You might be surprised at how many contests and promotional events are out there for social media fans to get the chance for jobs like this one. All you have to do is check around for paid to tweet contests and keep your eyes open, and the ways to enter are usually pretty simple.

For those who were looking to take on StubHub’s summer gig, there were just two simple steps: choose a picture and upload it to Instagram or Twitter (tagged with @StubHub, #FestivalPro, and #contest), and then fill out the entry form on the contest website. Of course, just like any other contest, there were some rules. In this case, you needed to be 21 years of age or over, and the picture itself was really the deciding factor: the website describes what you need to upload as a picture “from any live music event that conveys an excitement so palpable that we feel the bass pulsing through us from the other side of our monitor.” While that kind of image might seem like a large order to fill, if you’re a music festival junkie, you’ve probably got an image like that somewhere, it just takes a little looking around to grab it. I mean, who doesn’t have some fantastic memory captured in their phone somewhere?

So, do you think you have what it takes to be StubHub’s #FestivalPro?

This whole tour goes down beginning May 19 in Alabama at StubHub’s headquarters, and ends with the June 16-19 stop in Dover, Delaware. But, unfortunately, those looking to be StubHub’s #FestivalPro for this summer needed to submit their entries on the company’s website by midnight on April 29. So, this particular opportunity is over unless you have already entered. However, they will be announce the winner of this contest in early May, so look to see who the lucky winner is, and keep an eye out for their next promotional opportunity!

In fact, StubHub just concluded another contest giving away a Hangout Music Fest package, so there is a possibility that you could get another chance at being a #FestivalPro of a different kind. There are always opportunities to get paid to tweet if you’re looking out for them. They can pocket a whole lot of money, while you have a whole lot of fun, too!
