How do you make money with squidoo?

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by dscurlock, Jan 18, 2013.

    Two weeks I had my first squidoo lens created, it was my first, and it was not very good, it was boring, it was bland,
    and it really had nothing to offer, so how easy/hard is it to keep a lens ranked in squidoo; two weeks later, my lens is off the grid now.

    I keep hearing stories about people making money using squidoo, but if these guys have like 200+
    lens, then how in the hell are they able to keep every one of them ranked long enough to even pay off?

    regardless of how good or bad the lens is, just like anything things else, i assume it will start
    falling in ranking right away, less if it is somewhat popular, but nothing stays in search engines
    forever, so i am curious if these guys have 200-500+ then how are they able to keep them in the green?

    People make money from squidoo, from affiliate marketing, or ppc. They also continue doing SEO, for the squidoo lens that they do.

    Several ways to make money with Squidoo - even by helping others with Squidoo
    I can tell you the big bucks requires a lot of time spent on Squidoo and having a lot of friends doing Squidoo to help share and create the traffic.

    I think that the more squidoo pages you have, the more traffic you get, because they get ranked better in squidoos own search system - I know that's how it works with hubpages at least. For the most part, these lens owners are driving traffic to their pages through other means - such as sharing them through facebook or pinterest for example. SEO is not responsible for all of it.

    You don't need 200+ lenses to make a decent amount of money on Squdioo. I only have 4 lenses and I pull $100 a month. My best lens has made be $400 so far :)

    thats cool; I am not saying i need 200 lens; I was saying others have 100-200-500 lens...
    regardless, i would imagine if people had 100-500 lens, then they are making good beer money...
    (by the case beer money, not by the bottle)
    I suppose you never know what one lens can do, it can turn out to be a dud, or one
    lens can be your best money maker, just think if you had 20 good money making lens....

    Having 200 lenses is not a bad thing - unless all of them are not doing anything - if you have 200, hopefully you have some tier 1s.. at least some tier 2s - I have noticed accounts that have over 100 lenses with hardly any in even tier 3... that's a lot of lenses that are obviously not generating anything. That person has either given up or wasting a lot of time. A Tier 1 lens paid about $69.53 just for being Tier 1 - a lot of lenses in Tier 1 also get amazon sales. Tier 2 paid 11.82.. then Tier 3 paid $0.59.. Of course it wouldn't be a bad thing to have 100 in Tier 3 - that would pay some hosting fees and services.. the work to keep those lenses in Tier 3 is probably not worth the effort for most people. It depends on what you are making from your efforts now and what you are willing to do. $100/month for 4 lenses is pretty good - probably more than a lot of aspiring affiliate marketers are making right now.

    To make the big money from Squidoo, you have t be very active and dedicate hours to Squidoo everyday. I know some people at the top that spend 6-8 hours a day on squidoo.

    Why not you are checking out squidoo for it? They have lots of articles about making money their. Creating lenses, writing articles, sharing videos, adding photos, adding an RSS feed from your blog, adding your Twitter feed, adding your favorite links, and a lot more. I can suggest you to read a squidoo article too -

    I imagine they have some sort of automated system set up that markets their lenses, probably some kind of software.

    When you build your Squidoo lens, you will have to add modules; some of these are text, photos or other such as polls or even video which will bring your lens to life while adding valuable content, others are affiliate modules such as Amazon, EBay, and CafePress. If you are not yourself an affiliate of these websites, you can still use these modules; you may not make much money from these on a single lens, but if you want to avoid signing up to a lot of affiliate programs and still earn money from them, these modules are well worth adding to your lens.

    What people are looking for when visiting squidoo lenses are valuable information. For you to earn money like what others do is to think of an outstanding content that people will like reading, learn from it and can gain knowledge. If you accomplished this, your traffic will increased as well as your income.

    I think making money out of Squidoo depends on the niche. Research and find keywords, then write articles, put amazon and ebay links, add some videos, pictures and share it on Facebook, Google+, Pin, and start commenting on other people's lens. I have done many lenses for many people in the past. I have seen some of the lens I made earned $12 in one shot. I checked out how it made that money and found that someone, just one viewer, brought some product off my lens via Amazon. Just keep on making lens and this is what I am doing this year for myself now.

    Cheers!

    I do have a question; I recently purchased 10 lens, and i asked him where do i change my amazon/ebay ids, etc, and his reply was "you do not need too" I thought this was odd, this is how amazon/ebay gives you credit for any sales, and i do not recall setting any ids into squidoo, so how do I insure that I will get paid via amazon/ebay sales? I have been looking all over lens, and I can not find
    any location for amazon/ebay ids, any ideas what I need to look for? I would like to know that I am getting paid, and not the one that sold me the lens....

    yep, i sure see his id-20 in my links, but I am not sure how to change out...
