Squidoo Income Challenge Earnings Report
What are the results of the Squidoo Experiment?
It's been some time and I have not been adding much content here because I have been busy adding lenses to my Squidoo Empire! I am determined to succeed at my Squidoo Experiment. As of Dec. 13, 2012 I have 250 lenses. Adding more lenses to my passive income portfolio is great, but are they producing any results?
Are my new Squidoo lenses making any money?
The answer is YES! Some of the lenses make sales within the first 24 hours of being published. You're probably wondering how this happens, right? No, I'm not psychic. I am not a genius. I have an unfair advantage that you can have too. Read more about that below!
I'm sure you scrolled down to take a look at the table below with the earnings. I find it incredible that I will be receiving an amazon payment for close to $400! What you need to understand is that this was no accident. You can do this too. I found several lensmasters that were making money with Squidoo and sharing their results. I took their methods, tested them and combined them to create my own technique.
How do I choose my Squidoo lens topics?
I only make lenses about topics that I know will make me money. How do I know which keywords will be profitable? I use a keyword research tool that gives me the exact number of searches the keyword gets and the competition I can expect. When I started reading about success stories by various lensmasters, they all recommended this tool. They offer a free trial, but I just got it right away. I'm so glad that I did. I have doubled my Squidoo Amazon earnings in one month! I have used this tool with Squidoo, my blogs and hubpages. It works no matter what site you are using to make money! If you don't have it, get it!
What is my next make money online venture?
Two lensmasters I am following: lensmasters Skeffling and Klaird . They are both having excellent results with Zazzle. I joined last week and did some keyword research. I started a Squidoo lens today highlighting Zazzle products. With a 15% referral commission, it can really add up quickly! This is an awesome way for any wahm or dad to make money from home. You can either create your own products or sell other people's products. (I prefer affiliate marketing). Best of all, they offer volume bonuses, but I'm not sure how they work yet. I will look into it as soon as I start earning some commissions. Payments are processed through paypal on the 15th of the month. That means I would get both a Squidoo and Zazzle payment every month. Looking forward to that. Need to work really hard!
Can anyone really make money with Squidoo?
Yes! I helped a fellow hubber get started and she's already made some sales! I'm not going to reveal her identity. I'll let her do that if she chooses. All you need to make money on HubPages, Squidoo or Zazzle is that right keyword research tool. I've been using several free tools for years and received mediocre results. Why? You get what you pay for. Everyone is using those free tools. The keywords are too broad.
If you want to start making money online, take my advice. I am looking forward to a very profitable year. I hope to earn about a $1000. from my lenses in February. The sooner you get started, the closer you will be to your goal. Now, go take action! ;)
Don't forget to share this hub with other hubbers, friends and family by email, twitter, facebook, pinterest or your favorite social network site. Want to join me on my Squidoo Income Challenge? Let me know in the comments!
