Squidoo Lens Love
Squidoo Lens Love - What Goes Around Comes Around
Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to showcase your most recent lenses to the great Squidoo Lensmaster community?
So often when other Lensmasters run by your profile to take a look at your lenses they only see your "best lenses". Consequently these get more Squid Likes and views than all the other for little reason more than they sit at the top of the list on your bio page.
I feel that all my lenses are pretty great, even those that don't sit at the top. For one reason or another they don't get quite the same traffic levels and as such they don't get as many likes. I'm creating this page as a way of combating this problem.
I want to be able to show off my most recent lenses in hopes that more people will notice them and read them after they're published and maybe - just maybe - they'll get a bit more love.
See below for a list of my most recent lenses as well as some of my lenses that I particularly love.
Here Are A Few More Lens Promotion Tactics
In addition to better showcasing my newest lenses on my profile page I do a few other things to get traction right off that bat. Some of these may or may not work for everybody.
- I include a contextual link to new lenses from some of my older high traffic lenses. This ensures that at least a very small number of visitors click through to the new lens which keeps it "green" or out of WIP.
- I swap out my featured lenses on my bio page periodically to get faces on newer lenses.
I know many others use Squidoo directories or share their lenses on Facebook, Twitter, or their blogs but so far these are the only two things I've implemented into my promotional efforts.
The ONLY Squidoo Guide I Feel Comfortable Promoting
I've read about 6-7 different paid Squidoo guides over the past few months - ever since I started using Squidoo significantly. They all have tiny nuggets of info that I found helpful but this guide - written by a close friend of mine - is the only guide that is worth buying. It's far cheaper than all the others and it will help you out so much more. I hate getting more information than is actionable. Just read this and then take massive action.
This is an ebook formatted for Kindle. It is available to anyone regardless if they have a Kindle or not. You can read it on Amazon's free cloud reader, on your tablet computer, desktop, or just about nay smart phone made.
You've thought about buying those expensive Squidoo guides right? This one's around a buck. It's the best investment you could make in your business.
Here's the book on Amazon.co.uk or click below for the US site.
I'm giving this lens a try and am featuring it prominently on my bio. I'm not sure if it will help much but I hope that it will. What inventive ways have you used to improve initial traffic to your newest and best lenses?
