Hi! I'm Jennifer - known as 'PotPieGirl' online. Welcome to my blog! I just want to let you know that this post may contain affiliate links which means, at no cost to YOU, that I might receive compensation if you purchase something through a link on my site. In the blogging world that's called "affiliate marketing", and it's a very common way bloggers make money by sharing products they love (like I do). Yes, that's how many blogs make money. For example, This blogger makes $50,000+ a MONTH with her blog - blogging is solid home-business idea for just about everyone.
Thinking About Starting Your OWN Blog? If YOU'D like to learn how to make money blogging with affiliate marketing like I do, feel free to read my Free Blogging 101 E-Course here.
I’d like to share with you just one of the things I do to promote my Squidoo lenses. This tactic gets bonus points because it earns me money paid directly to my Paypal account usually within a few days.
I am a Content Producer for Associated Content. I write articles that are 400-600 words on any given subject and get paid for them. AC is a PR 6 website (at the time of this writing) which also offers me an opportunity for a strong link in to my lenses.
I have this lens – What is Squidoo .
I love this lens.
I love Squidoo so it was a very easy topic for me.
Within the content, I give a brief over-view of Squidoo and answer some of the most common questions I receive. For those that are looking for a “how-to” guide for learning Squidoo, I offer direction to all the ones I know of.
At the very bottom of this lens, there is a copy of a forum post I made in the eWealth forum for Internet Marketers
So many come into that forum (and most IM forums) asking how they can started making money online. I truly believe that Squidoo is a wonderful opportunity for anyone, regardless of experience level, to get started. My post reflects WHY I feel that way.
Ok, back to this promotion technique.
I wrote this article –The Squidoo Community and You – How to Join the Squidoo Family – and within the resource section, I linked to my lens. I made a whopping $4 + on the article itself, I got a high PR link IN to my lens, and I also accomplished a traffic generation opportunity – all for free.
Is this a “be a millionaire over-night” tip? Uh, no…hardly. However, this is a free way to promote your lens and get more targeted traffic TO your lens, this technique also gives that high PR link in that is SO helpful for lensrank and search engine ranking for my lens. This is a tip that also makes you some money very quickly, and for that little bit of effort on the front-side, I get to benefit from recurring passive income from not only traffic to my lens, but also for page views of the article itself.
I also get recurring income from Squidoo, too. Squidoo is a co-op affiliate opportunity. Each lens gets a share of the revenue Squidoo generates.
Do this a bunch of times, and you’ll have yourself a LOT of little “bread crumb” trails that give YOU the opportunity to earn some extra cash online – or start to make a living off of it.
And it all cost me nothing but some time.
