Before You Set Up Squidoo, Know These Things
Squidoo can turn you into an instant expert. All you need is traffic and luckily Squidoo has the tools that are so easy to use that they are actually turn-key.
You can build as many Squidoo lenses as you want. Currently one of the top 10 Squidooers has 140 lenses.
Oh, did I hear you ask the big question – what is Squidoo? It's blog. It's a mini-site. It's a private indulgence.
You do not have to be a programmer or a brain surgeon to create a gorgeous traffic pulling site
Oh – and one more thing. It does not cost a cent. Yes, Squidoo is free. No special tools required.
If this sounds too good to be true, I'll tell you what you can to make the experience much more beneficial. After all, as they say around here, go big or go home.
In other words, if you are going to take the 10 minutes to set up this free mini-site you might as well make it financially worth your while.
So here are the top 5 tips:
- Choose a subject that you are already an expert on or want to be an expert on. This way you will keep checking on it and adding to it. If we love something, we want to keep on talking about it. The bonus is that if you keep it fresh, people will come back again and again to see what you have to say now.
- Get to know the other Squidooers. Who knows you might be able to work together if your lenses are similar or complementary.
- Use the modules Squidoo uses. For instance, the RSS module allows you to pull in your blogs to Squidoo. Or use the Amazon module to link to related products on Amazon.
- Use Squidoo to pull together all the blogs and sites you have into one handy easy to use lens. Make Squidoo a dynamically interactive site where the best of what you have online is available in one lens.
- Break your information out into a number of lenses so that each lens is tightly targeted.
The impressive thing about Squidoo is that that does not take all your energy to deal with the technical stuff. You know what I mean – affiliate marketing, SEO, list building and web design.
The summary of the advice here is to just do it. Hey, this is a PR6 site. Some incoming links to your main site from a PR6 site is pretty cool!
