I Am Finally Making Money With Squidoo

Updated on August 7, 2012


I recently wrote a hub updating people about my Hubpages ad program earnings. Now I would like to tell people about my earnings' experience with Squidoo. Many people have heard of Squidoo and I have belonged to the site for years now but it wasn't until late 2011 I actually started to seriously use it and try my hand at making money with Squidoo. I will tell you guys around how much I earn with Squidoo and how I personally do it. Keep in mind though what works for me may not work for you though but at least you can use it as a guideline or whatever. You may also make my methods even better. Anyways, feel free to read on to find out how much I make with Squidoo on average and how I do it.

How Much Am I Earning With Squidoo

This is probably something people want to know first. Let me say this, it is possible to earn money on Squidoo. I'm not earning a full-time income but a few of my lenses are making me income on a consistent basis. I do very little work and I earn on average $50 a month (give or take) and those profits will increase over time, especially if I put in some serious effort.

Earlier I mentioned that I have only been taking Squidoo seriously since the end of 2011. What I mean by serious, I mean that I started to put in more effort than what I was putting in before. So $50 or so dollars a month may not seem like a lot but I do put minimal effort into Squidoo (for now).

How I prefer To Make Money With Squidoo

I'll get straight to the point. I have a lot of lenses on Squidoo and the ones I make money with seem to be the ones that have Amazon Modules on them. For the past few months I create lenses around specific items that I find on Amazon. Is every lens with Amazon Modules succeeding? No not at all but sometimes its a hit or miss when creating a lens. Sometimes it seems that the lenses that I think will do bad end up doing the best.

If you have an idea for a lens, then just do it. Don't wait to do it, do it as soon as the idea comes up and finish the lens!.

My Plans To Make More Money With Squidoo

Now that I see the potential to make some good money with Squidoo I will be doing a few things to see if I can make more money with Squidoo.

I plan on creating 1 lens a day for one month straight on specific items in a specific category. For example if I choose the subject "nuts and bolts" then I will create a lens a day relating to nuts and bolts. Think about it, nuts and bolts are used in a wide range of items.

I don't really market my lenses at all and I don't really plan on it either.

You Can Do It Too

If I can make a few bucks from Squidoo, then there is no reason why you can't make good money. Go and take a look at my other hubs, its clear that I am not a professional writer or a genius. If I can earn money on Squidoo, anybody can.

      Thanks for the comment Pro-Hubber. I have around 80 lenses/articles on Squidoo. I should have a lot more than that but I'll be writing more over there. In my opinion I like using Squidoo to sell products and I like using hubpages to just write about virtually anything.

      If you go over to Squidoo just look up items on Amazon or eBay, choose a product and then make a lense about it. Then add Amazon modules with related products. This is what I have been doing lately and it seems to be working for me.

      I use Squidoo to promote Amazon products while I use Hubpages to just write about all sorts of topics.

      Hope this helps a little bit.
