What’s the Big Deal With Squidoo?

by , under Internet Marketing

by: Dan Waggoner


To put it mildly Squidoo helps to complete three very important tasks for your online business.

It allows you to very easily create a lens which acts as a back link and traffic generator for your website. They have a Google PageRank of 5 and Alexa Ranking of 301. The website gets about 3,600,000 visitors a day. Yes that is almost 4 million visitors in each and every day just surfing Squidoo’s site to possibly stumble onto yours. Well….to be correct they won’t really be stumbling onto yours because you will enter the proper keywords to target the traffic and you will be wise and add compelling and valued content on the site. As a registered member you will have this capability.

Your lens can also be used as an alternative source of income as you can most certainly monetize it and advertise on it. If you don’t know by now, I’m pretty big on multiple streams of income. You should be earning money anywhere and everywhere you can earn it. The ultimate idea is to have money coming in to your account from different sources everyday. After some time of doing this the earnings will eventually start to really add up. Just make sure you apply some good business ethics.

Finally the last reason you should consider setting up a Squidoo account is because it’s another place on the Internet to tell the world who you are and properly lead them to your business. The end goal is to get more traffic. Without traffic you have no business.

If you already have your own website up and running I can’t think of any reason you shouldn’t already be over there setting up your own lens. If you don’t have a site yet what a great opportunity to begin telling the world what you have in mind. Let everybody know about your up and coming business plans and propositions. Start driving traffic to your Squidoo lens so when you do get your site going you can drive traffic from your lens to your business website.

Best Wishes!

Where To Start Earning Money Online?

by , under Everything Else, Internet Marketing

It seems that everyday now I get an email from a reader or an acquaintance and sometimes friends and relatives as well. They all ask me the same question.  Where do I start earning money online and is there really money to be made?

I will try to answer those questions separately for everybody reading.

My advice is to start with whatever you think you can handle. Regardless if that means joining a survey company and doing one or two surveys a month and making an extra $20.00 to $50.00. Maybe just sign up for a multi level marketing (MLM) company and send and receive referrals strictly by email. If you really want to take a leap then set up a website or blog and start marketing your own product or affiliate products. This is the sincere beauty of the Internet. It really doesn’t matter. I tell everybody that throws me that question the same thing I’m getting ready to tell you. Do Something! The worst thing you can do is sit and talk about it. Anybody can do that. Just talking about it won’t make you a dime! Most of you already know this but if you want something in life you have to reach out and grab it. Chances are that it won’t come to you so you have to go get it. Start by doing it part time between your other activities…ie..work – family and social life. Get on the Internet and start reading and networking with other people in search of the same thing. You will find that while there are plenty of scammers out and about there are also plenty of good people who are willing to help you along because they’ve been there themselves and remember how it was and because they genuinely want to help others. Good people do still exist in this world! You just have to wade through some bad to find them.

As to whether or not money can be made. The answer is a resounding yes! Considering the fact that there are 1.6 billion Internet users in the world and almost 252 million in North America alone I would say your odds are pretty good. It’s not a question of can you earn money. It’s a question of will you reach out and grab it.  More and more people are earning money everyday online. It’s because they stumble across something that actually got their attention and they were willing to take a chance and sacrifice some of their time. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the Internet is unlike other businesses because in a sense it’s not. Most businesses require an investment on your part be it online or out in the streets. Some are small and some are large. It’s like anything else. It just depends on your interests and what you think may keep you interested and what you can afford. If you can’t afford much right now then go after the freebies and take it day by day. With bigger risk usually comes bigger rewards so if you can afford some money to invest then look into a few larger opportunities. There are so many out there!

My personal recommendation is start right away! Get involved with as many different ideas and opportunities as you possibly can but always do your research prior to jumping in. I have tried to list here on my website and blog the ideas and businesses that stood out to me. I will continue to find more of them for you but there are hundreds of thousands of others out there as well. I am personally a fan of multiple streams of income so I like to leverage my time and money in as many opportunities as possible. This way I always have money coming in from multiple places. That works for me but may not work for you. The main point is as I stated earlier…..Do Something! Don’t just sit there at your computer wishing that something would come along and make you rich. Earning money online is like any other business. If you want to succeed you have to work hard at it. It doesn’t happen overnight for 99.9% of us but I can tell you one thing for sure as somebody who does earn decent money online. If you put your mind to it, set some goals for yourself and start doing something right this minute you will be a whole lot closer than you were yesterday.
