Earning Passive Income with Squidoo

Squidoo is just so addictive. Once you have started, you will never stop! 

Official Squidoo Page:

Oh wait, what is Squidoo? And what exactly should I do to start earning this income? No worry, I will tell you some basic tips you need to start earning.

I started my Squidoo journey only in May 2011, in which Squidoo has already been there since 2005. Squidoo is in fact a free user-generated website, and every members is called a 'Lensmaster'. Once you have your account created, you can start creating page, which is called a 'Lens'. Creating a unique and quality page is all what you need, and with quality content and genuine photos, your lens will be ranked(called lensrank) in respective category. The higher rank your lens achieved, the better your income. The lenses that you created will be like this:  (XXX is your lens title)

For example: 
Pivot Raizin Vlatage Regulator & Stabilizer

So how exactly can you earn some pocket money? 

1. Sharing of d Ads Income
Squidoo pays you for every lens you created, of course with lensrank 85000 or higher. If you look at a Squidoo page, you will see Adsense ads, Chitika ads, text ads etc. Squidoo earns their big money from those ads clicks. So, even with your very own lens, you will see Adsense and other ads. So, when your lens achieved a certain lensrank, you will get a 'share' from the total money that Squidoo generated for the past few months. 

Payout is 2 months back, meaning that they will pay you your March 2012 earnings in May 2012. Payout can be as low as $0.39, to as high as $9.00 per lens. (Well that's my limit, you might have higher income if you have a much more better lens than me)

There is no limit in how many lenses you can have, if you are hardworking and persevere enough, you can create up to 500 lenses or more.

See the lens which gave me $26.34 thus far: Angry Birds on SONY PSP Now

2. Earning commission using eBay, Amazon, Zazzle, Cafepress etc.
So now we are done with earning from ads, secondly is earning through commission from those gigantic online auction site. Squidoo came equipped with 'modules', such as eBay, Amazon, and you can freely insert the module into any of your lens. When someone clicks your link and purchased something, there you go, you get money for that! Simple!

See the lens which gave me commission through eBay: Pivot Mega Raizin

My total income thus far after one year: $42.54

Some people want only get-rich-quick program or sites, i can seriously tell you Squidoo is NOT such sites. Yes you can earn money, but at a stable and increasing manner. Squidoo will get serious with you ONLY when you get serious with them. The only way to success in Squidoo is to create UNIQUE and QUALITY page.

Actually it's not true, Squidoo doesn't pay you for every lens you create, only those that are in tiers 1, 2 or 3 - up to 85000 in lensrank. Anything below that, you won't get a dime from them.

Good article though.
