Can You Make Money With Squidoo?

I'm sure that most of you reading this have heard of the web 2.0 platform known as Squidoo. Whether or not you are familiar with it, one burning question is can you make money with Squidoo? If so, how do you get started making some extra money?

In today's economic times where companies are downsizing, unemployment levels are up and earning enough money to make ends meet becomes more challenging all the time, it makes sense to look for ways to bring in some extra cash every month.

Instead of feeling stressed and becoming depressed over a less than favorable financial situation, it might be a better idea to look at ways that you, even with very little experience on the internet, can reduce some of this stress and worry by bringing in a little more bacon.

One way to do this is to look at Squidoo as a way to earn some extra money.

Squidoo is easy to learn and easy to use. There are no sign-up fees, membership dues or costs of any kind. Squidoo can be used as a means to backlink to a blog or website to increase your traffic (and hopefully sales) from visitors to your site.

But some other popular ways to earn some cash from Squidoo is to take advantage of the already-built-in sales modules such as CafePress, Ebay and Amazon.

For example, by simply adding an Amazon module (or building block) to the Squidoo "lens" (or page) you are creating, then pulling in items for sale on Amazon, you can put together a nice little site where consumers can click through to Amazon and place orders. You don't have to become an Amazon affiliate to benefit from this feature. It is automatically set up right there on your Squidoo page.

Of course, you want to write some educational, informative and original content talking about those items you are promoting. If you are good at writing informative articles, you would be good at creating content for your Squidoo modules.

You should add pictures to make things look even better, and pull in some other cool modules like a poll, YouTube "how to" videos, or a guestbook for feedback.

Squidoo ranks well in Google and you can create special lenses for holiday sales (like Christmas) or focus on "evergreen" products that have the potential to make sales for you all year long.

The more lenses you create, the better you will become at making really cool lenses that your readers will love! The more awesome lenses you create, the more opportunities you have to make extra money.

If you've got more time than money, on-line income opportunities are a good thing to think about. On-line income opportunities that are free to use are even better.

As you think about ways to earn extra money, consider the many possibilities available to you on-line. Can you make money with Squidoo? Fortunately, it is one of those possibilities.

Keep at it, Eugene! The more you do, the better you get at it (just like anything) and it will go faster and has the potential to put some extra money in your pocket for nothing more than a time investment.
