It is incredibly easy to start setting up custom web pages once you open a free account with Squidoo. There is no limit on how many pages you can create and it is almost like having a bunch of mini-websites. The sky’s the limit for what you do with this site and it all comes down to your strategy and time commitment.
For affiliate marketing, the site presents an opportunity for those to have a high search ranking in order to make sales to receive a commission.
You can customize your “Lenses” each with a unique appearance by using the modules offered to you by Squidoo. There are modules that can help you earn money such as the Amazon, AdSense, and eBay modules, plus many more. You have a lot of freedom in creating your Lens, and it is important to take advantage of the other modules offered because they can help make your site more attractive to visitors.
Squidoo Tips and Tricks
1. Note that you will need to put effort into creating your Lenses. You cannot just simply rush through making the page if you want to get visitors. When I first started using Squidoo, I had no visitors in my first month because I did not put effort into making a good page. You will need to pat attention to SEO and treat your page like a normal website. And remember, it helps to update your Lens like a normal blog because the search engines like fresh content. You do not need to go crazy about making updates, but if you have the time, you should post new content at least once a month.
2. A new properly done lens can be indexed by Google quickly if you do everything correctly. Google likes Squidoo so it is more likely you will be found than if you posted your content onto your own website.
3. Squidoo offers Amazon and eBay products to promote, but if you want more options use, or if you haven’t already, join ClickBank or Commission Junction where you can find more products to make money with.
4. Feel free to experiment with different products. You never know which one will break through.
You can set up your payments to go directly into a PayPal account or your savings, and Squidoo has a low payment threshold which I believe is $5. Your commission from advertising, affiliate links, and other sales will all collect in one account for your convenience.
When you first begin your Squidoo adventures, start out with topics that you are passionate about and over time you can start to branch out into other topics. It will be easier for you to write a Lens if you are familiar with the topic and people will see that you know what you are talking about.
