Squidoo Payday – Let’s Double It!

Bigger Goals, Bigger Achievements

Earn Money With Squidoo Payday

Yesterday I received my second Squidoo payday.  This occasion was made all the more joyous by the fact that my monthly earnings had almost doubled! Squidoo’s new payday reporting system told me that I’d doubled the bucks because I’d doubled my  number of Tier 2 lenses.

And so today I’m upping the ante.

Inspired by this success and Seth Godin’s Blog this morning – Make Big Plans – I have decided to trash my recent goal of $100 by end of April.

Seth’s words of wisdom remind us that the best way to make big things happen is to make big plans!

So, let’s double it!

My January online income reports almost $50 in the bank – I’m doubling it and aiming to report $100 for February.

To achieve this I am going to have to publish at least 5 articles with Demand Studios over the next 10 days.

But, that’s not all. Because I’m aiming to throw another double.

5 articles with Demand Studios, 10 lenses with Squidoo.  I’m challenging myself to publish 10 new Squidoo lenses in 20 days, aiming for ten quality lenses that achieve a minimum of Tier 2 status.

Stayed tuned to follow my progress and feel free to show your support with a quick comment below.

With thanks

Squidoo payday

Day 59 – $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge

I got paid! This month I was the happy recipient of my first Squidoo payday and last night I made my first online sale, netting a proportion of the royalty payment from Amazon.

As my Squidoo earnings begin to take flight I thought I would  give some insight into the inner workings of  the Squidoo payday demonstrating just how easy it is to start to build an extra income with this user friendly site.

How Can I Make Money with Squidoo?

Amongst other things Squidoo is a revenue share site. This means that Squidoo lensmasters (the people who spend time creating, publishing and promoting Squidoo pages) earn a percentage of the total advertising revenue Squidoo.com earns from Adsense, Infolink and Chitika (inclusion in the Infolink and Chitika revenue share is optional).

Every month,  on or near the 15th  (it’s always early and never late) it’s Squidoo payday and how much a lensmaster earns depends upon the performance or average ranking of each of their lenses. A lenses ranking is determined by many factors but in the simplest terms lensmasters improve the ranking of their lenses by attracting plenty of visitors, boasting high levels of participation and being an active member of the Squidoo community.

How Quickly Can I Earn Money with Squidoo?

As soon as they have been live for a month, lenses qualify for the revenue share program and exactly 3 months after the publication of the first lens new squids will enjoy the first of many Squidoo paydays.

Like most revenue share sites Squidoo pay their members in arrears. This means that the January 2011 Squidoo payday related to site activity for the period 1st – 30th November 2010.

I launched two of my first lenses in October 2010, these qualified for the Squidoo revenue share program in November 2010 and as a result when the January 2011 Squidoo payday arrived I saw money in my account!

What About Commission From Sites Like Amazon?

Every Squidoo lens offers the opportunity to earn an affiliate payment through the sale of products on Amazon, eBay, Zazzle and iTunes. Simple modules allow lensmasters to easily promote relevant products from any of these sites. Every time a reader clicks from a lens through to make a purchase the lensmaster receives a commission or royalty payment.

Amazon is the best way to make an extra income on Squidoo. The site makes it really easy to incorporate relevant products, write your own personalized recommendations and ultimately benefit from any sales.

Every time a lens makes an Amazon sale the creator receives a 4.25% royalty payment.  As a comparison most individual small Amazon affiliates, people who open their own personal accounts, start in the 4% sales tier on Amazon. It takes a lot of work and a huge amount of sales to reach Amazon’s 6% tier.

Last night I made my first Amazon sale through Squidoo from a lens that I  created just two months ago on the 26th November 2010.  I have to say it was a very exciting discovery!
