How To Make A Profit On Squidoo
There's Money To Be Earned
If you stumbled onto this lens, you could be looking for other ways to make money on Squidoo. You might be a new lensmaster with a couple of lenses or a lensmaster with over 100 lenses like me. I have quickly made myself into a successful lensmaster who makes over $100 a month on Squidoo. I started using Squidoo less than 6 months before seeing these results, so in my opinion, any new lensmasters can succeed. In this lens, I want to show you which methods worked for me to make me a successful lensmaster.
Most people know what a module is on Squidoo. Some modules on Squidoo are big earners for me, and 25% of my earnings tend to come from the Amazon Module. I personally don't use the eBay Module too much because I prefer Amazon, but everyone has a different opinion. In the June payout, I made about $131, and over $40 of the profit came from the Amazon Modules spread throughout my lenses. Any lens with an Amazon Module can get a sale, and I have been enjoying the results.
How To Use The Text with BIG Picture Module Effectively
Imagine putting an advertisement right in the middle of your lens. Now imagine that no one knew that it was an ad, but if they clicked on the picture, something would happen. Many lensmasters neglect the power of putting links into their pictures. Let's take this Text With BIG Picture Module as an example. You might have guessed that the whale in the picture is Moby Dick. Now, click on the picture and see what happens. You'll be brought over to my Amazon Associate ID where I'll receive a small commission when someone purchases this book. You can use the Amazon Module, but putting Amazon Links into your Text with BIG Picture Module can make a huge difference.

A Personal Review
If you had to buy something, then wouldn't you want to know what you were buying. A description about the product is good, but wouldn't you want a customer review of the product. If the description is all good, but the customer's review isn't, then would you buy the product? Provide your potential customers a review of your product with the Amazon Spotlight Personal Review Module. TELL your potential customers that you have and love the product in order to convert potential customers into real customers.
For example, is that the right bowl for your goldfish? If you know the answer, then write a review about it.
Let Squidoo Indirectly Earn You Money
How do you have Squidoo indirectly give you money? Well, you can promote a store (or an eBay store), and then you'll get customers. One lensmaster I've noticed is Bus_Stop_Toy_Shop who promotes his store. In the eBay Module (which I rarely use), you can promote your eBay products. Then, you'll get your whole commission (since it's yours) and you'll get a piece of Squidoo's commission as well.
Using The GuestBook Module Effectively
The Lego Station is my best ranked lens, and that's because of a couple of factors, but here are 2 notable facts. There are about 10 Guestbook Modules in that lens. Second of all, it gets a lot of sales. Using the Guestbook Module to ask for visitor's Amazon Product Recommendations based on your niche is a key way to getting more sales. Your Amazon Spotlight Personnel Review is a good start, but getting other people's opinion about the product is a great way to convince potential customers to buy a product.
Important Information About Customers
If you say "If I were in your shoes", "If I was you", or "I know how you feel", it doesn't reassure your customer because you'll never know how your customer feels. Providing good quality content leads to more sales. Instead of saying I would buy the product, and you should too, think of talking about all of the features in GREAT detail. The more features a product has, the better. For example, would you want a computer that could only type, or would you want a retina display computer with lightning fast speed, the internet, and a couple of your favorite apps from the App Store? I think you'll take the computer with the retina display and all of the other features. If you talk about those FEATURES, then you will get more sales.
Don't Let Your Lenses Sink!
When I started Squidoo, I mainly focused on my Tier 1 and Tier 2 lenses. This is a good way to approach Squidoo, but focusing on these lenses made me forget about my Tier 3 and Tier 4 lenses which was bad. Even if your lens has a terrible lensrank over 1 million, I highly recommend working on that lens so that is succeeds just like every other lens. I was happy with 1 Tier 1 lens and 5 Tier 2 lenses, but ever since I've focused on my other lenses, I've been getting more Tier 2 lenses and a couple of lenses near Tier 1 status.
When you start out on Squidoo, it is important to create lenses as well as like others, comment on others, and join the discussions in the SquidU Forum. If you like other lenses and give good comments, you'll get likes and comments as well. I know that I'll visit one or two lenses of someone that likes my lenses, and that's the same for other people. Talking about your lenses on Twitter and/or Facebook is also a great way to get yourself exposed.
You Don't Get Paid For Visiting This Lens
This lens is a place where you can learn how to make money on Squidoo. However, you will only make money with good content and a little bit of work. The more work you put into Squidoo, the more results you'll see. I had over 100 lenses in less than 4 months, and that is one of the reasons that I am successful on Squidoo.
