Well almost anyway! I joined Squidoo as lensmaster last 28th July 2012. It will be six months come next week. Time flies by too fast! It makes me feel like the earth is spinning faster and faster each year. LOL! 😀
So it’s almost six months and to date, I have around 79 Squidoo lenses. Somehow I still feel that there’s a lot left to be learned. Plus, I want to write more lenses as I have loads of ideas. Most times, I have trouble organizing ideas in order to come up with a sensible lens with valuable content.
I must admit that most of my lenses centered on seasonal gift guides or celebrations. I would need to come up with more evergreen topics. That’s the only way to gain more traffic. More traffic.. more earnings. However, that’s not always the case. Some of my lenses with lesser traffic have been the ones that have generated sales via Amazon. Indeed! 🙂
Ideas and concepts are abundant; however, it’s not as easy when it comes to turning them into concrete lenses. What happens is I try to play them in my mind and visualize on how I would want my lens to look. Jotting down ideas helps me a lot too. However, there are times when I lose interest or feel that the end result would not come out as I expected. That’s when procrastination sets in. That is indeed one of my biggest challenges.
So, now that I’ve been a member for quite some time. Does Squidoo pay? I’m sure you’d like to know!
You see, you’d need to wait two months before getting paid for your high-tiered lenses.
Tier 1 — 1 – 2,000
Tier 2 — 2,000 – 10,000
Tier 3 — 10,001 – 85,000
I’ve been starting in October 2012. My very first payment was pretty memorable as it rounded off to exactly $1.00! 😀 I guess that’s better than none. So, yes, Squidoo pays and is a good way to earn some extra cash online. To date, I’ve received around almost $18.00 from Squidoo. I will need to keep coming up with quality lenses to keep the traffic and income coming! If you haven’t joined Squidoo, I encourage you to give it a try, esp. if you have a penchant for writing and have interesting hobbies and vacation stories.
