Are you asking yourself “How do I get my start on Squidoo?”? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Squidoo is a popular article-sharing site that specializes in articles on niche topics. It’s a great place to not only show off your knowledge but to learn interesting things as well. For marketer, it’s the perfect place to put out specific information to reach a specific clientele.

 

To get started, first create your account and complete your profile as much as possible. There are a few sections that you may not find relevant at first but later on, when you want your lens found and rated, it’ll be nice to have all the information readily available. Squidoo offers compensation in small amounts for popular lenses, so include your PayPal email for payment and make sure to link your Facebook and Twitter accounts if you have them. This will help you promote your lens.

 

Find others in your niche. This should be done after your profile is completed. Take a look at what others have done with their lens and find what you like best. Start off with only a couple niche-topics so your lens won’t appear cluttered or confusing. It’ll be much easier to market if you have a focus.

 

Squidoo provides a step-by-step guide that will show you how to set up a lens. There are screenshots that explain every step along the way. There’s even a YouTube video that shows how to set up a Squidoo lens.

 

Preview your lens by checking your grammar and spelling. Make sure all your hyperlinks are working correctly. No one likes lenses with bad links or grammatical errors all over the place!

 

Then publish your lens and you’re done!

 

Join some groups in the Squidoo community to get familiar with some members that share your interests. By networking, you’ll be able to improve the ranking of your lenses as well as meet others who have similar interests as you
