Squidoo - The Best Free Internet Job Ever

Updated on January 5, 2014

Why Is Squidoo The Best Free Internet Job Ever?

I love Squidoo. I guess you could say I'm a Squidoo addict. Recently I was asked;

"Why Squidoo? What the heck is so special about this place with the hokey name?"

This caused me to wonder why indeed? Here is what I came up with.

Millions of people search endlessly for ways to work from home on the Internet. Most of those people are looking for a free Internet job, meaning a job or means to earn money without investing any of their own money. So they get online searching for work-from-home websites where they can earn money working from home on the Internet.

Usually what happens is they fall for something that sounds very easy, often a free Internet job that sounds too good to be true. And find out that's exactly what it was, too good to be true. It was either a complete scam or required an investment of far too much money after a "free" introductory offer.

Is that you? Well it was me at one point too. Then I discovered Squidoo. Not just a free Internet job, but the Best free Internet job ever.

So I thought I would share my top seven reasons why Squidoo is a great way to work from home on the Internet and how easy it is for you to begin your Squidoo addiction today! I also included some very valuable resources via other Squidoo lensmasters to help you work from home, make money online and become successful on Squidoo too!

All the resources you need to be successful to work from home on the Internet are right here on Squidoo at your disposal - for FREE!

Now that you have become an official Lensmaster, you probably should get acquainted with a few of the special terms that are part of the culture here at Squidoo. You just might be wondering what is it with all this Squid stuff? Or maybe, what the heck is a lens and a lensmaster?

Relax. Like anything else new it takes a minute to get acquainted, but it doesn't have to be difficult as long as you begin at the right place.

And where is that?

A little side trip over to:

Getting Started With Squidoo

OK How Do I Build A Lens?

A Work From Home Website That Teaches You For Free!


No Technical Skills Required

You don't need to know any super technical skills or fancy computer stuff in order to build really cool lenses (websites).

Lens building is fun, addictive and if you are prepared, pretty easy. If I had to do it over again, rather than just jumping in and struggling to build a lens, I would visit as many "how to build a lens" lenses and learn from the experts.

I like to shorten any learning curve I can, unfortunately I usually discover how to shorten a curve AFTER I have taken the longer route. In other words, I learn from my mistakes. Had I visited good quality lenses FIRST in my Squidoo journey, I might have experienced success a little earlier in the game!

Want to visit some really cool lenses on "how to build a lens"? Let me introduce you to a few right now.................

Yes, Squidoo is a free Internet job. The best, in fact. But it does require effort on your part.

If you are someone who is looking to get rich quick and believe those empty promises that run wild on the Internet, then this isn't for you.

But! If you are someone who really wants to work from home and money online and aren't afraid to invest time and effort in yourself, then this is an ideal opportunity created just for you.

      I agree with most of the things said here, but to be honest I don't do if for the money. It's a great perk don't get me wrong, and can be a fun challenge to make more, but Squidoo is just so darn fun and It allows me to explore and learn so much. I'm 10X smarter than before I started on Squidoo. Awesome lens you have here.

      Squidoo is awesome. It was slow to start for me, but once I got the hang of it, it was addictive, fun, and it actually pays. I've learned almost everything about building websites and pages from reading and writing on Squidoo.

      I do use Squidoo as a big part of my overall online presence, but the one tip I'd give above everything else is to also sell products elsewhere as well. Two incomes can't hurt, and Squidoo compliments so many other platforms like CafePress, Zazzle, and blogs.

      Squidoo is a great platform which is unique from a normal blogging site. It's sophisticated, yet simple to use. There is definitely a learning curve to it, but it doesn't take too much to get started. I would definitely recommend it!

      Sure it is, and it is also one that seems to fill so many people with passion. In a world where everything seems too good to be true and usually is, Squidoo is a site that keeps its initial promises -- work hard, learn the ropes, and you can make some money. Simple as that. Love the way you organised this page with your favourite lenses. You are clearly a Squidoo Angel in the making... ;)
