Squidoo Job Description: Writing articles about various subjects
Extra info: A Brief Overview of Squidoo Squidoo was formed by Seth Godin (he served as Yahoo’s Direct Marketing Vice President and popularized permission marketing), and his associates Megan Casey, Heath Row, Corey Brown, and Gil Hildebrand, JR. in 2005. It is an online community where members or users can make a page (lens in Squidoo language) about any subject of interest. Hence, it is a user-generated website. A lens or a page basically contains a member or user’s thoughts or opinion about any topic of her choice. The page is also able to link to any of the writer’s website, blog spot, favorite links, Amazon or eBay pages, Google maps, and many more. How to get Started and Make Money with Squidoo One can decide to build a lens or page by simply clicking on the “Build a Lens” in the Squidoo website. With each lens, there comes a module where one can manually enter other links. And because a lens is the writer’s personal opinion or point of view, there can be multiple lenses that can be created about the topic without being identical or redundant. Although there are those who choose to donate to their chosen charitable institutions, one can definitely make money in Squidoo through a number of ways. But then, it would also depend on how good, useful, unique, and popular one’s lens or page is. Squidoo earns money through ads from sites like Google, etc. Half of the money is paid out to the writers (lensmaster in Squidoo language) based on a pay scale that would depend on the page’s average traffic and how many other pages that writer has. A writer can also earn money through affiliate marketing. If one’s page is set up with a module that links to websites like Amazon, eBay, etc., the writer will automatically get a percentage of any sales generated from the posted link. There are other possibilities one can earn money through Squidoo, the key is to write interesting and quality articles and make use of all the modules available in the lens or page.
