Make money with Squidoo and monetize your marketing

Monetize your Marketing with Squidoo or just earn money with Squidoo!

What is Squidoo? Squidoo was founded by Seth Godin, well-known author and marketing guru. It is a free Internet platform that allows people (lensmasters) to write about topics they enjoy and make money in the process. If that is not enough, it is fun, too! Warning – creating lenses (pages) is addicting.

And the best part, Squidoo and it's lensmasters contribute thousands of dollars annually to various charities. Isn't that great?

Squidoo makes money from ads and affiliate links.Squidoo gives 5% of what they earn, right off the top, to charity. They keep 45% to cover overhead and stuff. That leaves 50%. That goes to charity or to the people who build the pages. And they leave it up to you to choose one or the other. It's that simple. You can earn a dollar, a nickel or a dime at a time for your favorite cause or for you.

Did I mention that Squidoo is free? Always has been.

"It's a simple wayto present information on a topic you care a lot about."

My best advice.Create yours lenses around a niche. It’s important to write about topic you enjoy and have knowledge about. My first two lens are about my primary business. My goal – monetize my marketing efforts. And it has worked.

Sure, you can create a lens around other topics. My next one is either about cooking healthy or fitness tips. Can’t make up my mind, so I might just do both.

You can also register with affiliate sites and import product links directly to your Squidoo lenses.
I use Shareasale in addition to the Squidoo money making modules (eBay, Amazon & Cafepress). It is a nice way to earn even more money from your Squidoo lenses.

Are you ready to get started? Don’t wait – make a lens today!
