Default Ways To Make Money With Squidoo: How To Make Squidoo Your Non-Stop Moneymaking Machin

Are you an enthusiast or expert on a certain subject? Are you willing to share your knowledge to the world? How about making money online while sharing your passion to the world? Squidoo makes all this possible.

In this article, you will discover what Squidoo is, what cool features and benefits it has, and most importantly, the fun and effective ways to make money with Squidoo.

Ready? Let’s begin.

What Is Squidoo?

Squidoo is a content-sharing site built as a way for people to share their knowledge, opinion, or expertise to the world. As the founder and bestselling author Seth Godin believes, “Everyone’s an Expert”. Thus, Squidoo is designed as a way to express that know-how.

A Squidoo page is called a lens. It’s quite similar to blogs, where people can publish their ideas for the online world to see. These lenses provide a way for people to see the world and thus improve their lives. The maker of a squidoo lens is called a lensmaster or a squid.

Because each lens contains a single theme or idea, Squidoo is currently holding on to almost a million pages for every nick and cranny ideas to help people find the things they need and want.

The articles are so helpful and popular that Squidoo is profiled in CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times and MSNBC.

Features And Benefits Of Squidoo


1)Free to Join

Squidoo is free for anyone to join and publish their content. Since there are a number of ways to make money with squidoo, online entrepreneurs use it to promote their own products and affiliate programs, and earn royalties from Squidoo (more about this later).

2) Easy to Use

You don’t need to have any technical s****s to create a squidoo lens. It is very user-friendly. There might be a bit of a learning curve when you’re starting out, but you can easily create a lens within minutes once you get the hang of it.

3) Easy to Link to Other WebPages

There’s no limit as to how many links and promotions you can include in your squidoo lens, although it is recommended to strike a good balance between providing useful content and advertisements.

Squidoo is also more lenient compared to other popular content-sharing sites, such as Hubpages. When using Hubpages, you may only include up to 2 links from the same domain, and their community discourages you to be overly promotional.

4) Fan Club

An internet entrepreneur could build an army of fans using Squidoo. If your articles are helpful enough, it will boost your reputation as an expert in your niche. It would then be easier for you to make money with Squidoo, because your fan club will be more targeted and responsive.

How To Write Content For Your Squidoo Lens

If you are not an expert, but know of an easier way to do things than most people do, that knowledge alone is precious in Squidoo. You may write a simple article that you are comfortable sharing, and this is already a good lens.

If you are merely promoting your affiliate products, you can create a good quality review of your product and create a squidoo lens for it.
