Squidoo is a website that allows anyone to add a page of content on any topic they like. It’s free to join and free to create pages and for those who have had no experience with websites or blogs then Squidoo is the quick and easy alternative.
Squidoo is made up of thousands of pages with each page called a lens. A user can create as many lenses as they like – in fact, Squidoo encourages it. Each lens is unique to a particular subject although it is not like Wikipedia where only one page can be created on any one topic. With Squidoo the same topic can be written about on multiple lenses by different users.
Each lens is made up of modules, although to anyone looking from the outside in, the lens looks just look any other webpage on the internet. To a lensmaster however, modules are the building blocks of their lenses.
To create a lens a lensmaster needs to add modules to their page. Each module serves a different purpose. For instance, there are text modules, eBay modules, Amazon modules, list modules, Guestbook and Link modules, Youtube modules, just to name a few. The lensmaster can choose any of these modules from a huge list and when selected the module is added to their lens from which they can then edit to suit their needs.
Once a certain number of modules and content have been added to a lens it can be published for all the world to see.
How Can I Make Money with Squidoo?
Squidoo has internal money making methods which can be set up simply by adding a module. Once you add these modules you edit it them to add products.
Some of these modules include:
- Amazon module
- eBay module
- Cafepress module
You can also make money from royalties which are paid on a monthly basis by Squidoo. This won’t be much and I usually donate mine to the charities which are set up within Squidoo.
Another way to make money with Squidoo is by referring people to sign up. When they make $15 through their lens then you receive a $5 payment.
These methods will not make you a lot of money. The big dollars actually come from adding affiliate links to your lens. This is what makes Squidoo so special as they allow you to add these types of links. You can use Clickbank, Commission Junction, Linkshare or any other affiliate network to get product links for your lens.
