Making money online is an easy thing but only if you live in the USA or Canada. There are way more ways to earn money in such countries. I have moved to India and now I am looking for the best ways to make money online in India for free. Today I want to draw your attention to one website called Squidoo.com. Here users can make money by writing content and lets see how its done.
When you see this site for the first time you may think it’s only the website sharing information. But it’s not true. It’s also a rather simple way to make money. Squidoo is one of the best ways to get your web presence.
How to Make Money from Home by Writing Articles and Reviews?
There are several tips for useful work with Squidoo. The first one is that you should be a content provider or a ‘lensmaster’ (the name of a content provider in the world of Squidoo, because each page created by an individual is called a ‘lens). This primary function allows everyone to be experts in their specialty areas. It’s fun because when you create a page and Squidoo runs ads on them, you get a cut of the revenues whenever a reader/visitor clicks on an ad on your lens.
The second way of making money is selling and promoting your own products. It doesn’t require much work : you simply create a lens that is related to the theme of your online store, use the built-in functions of adding eBay and/or CafePress items, choose items that you wish to promote and then publish and share your lens. Also I would recommend checking out this Squidoo page about ways of earning money from home.
The next way is selling affiliate products which is achieved by the use of their built-in affiliate tools or by linking to your own affiliate products on your lenses. As you can see, making money by writing content is an easy thing to do and this website is good for anyone in the world, including people from India.
You can also drive traffic to your blog or website. The new visitors of the lens about your blog or website may just turn in to readers, subscribers, and/or buyers of whatever it is you’re selling.
The fifth way is to promote Squidoo through their affiliate programme. For that you need only to create your own account and get your referral link. The thing I like about this way is that when someone signs up through your affiliate link and then his or her lens earns its first $15, both you and your friend will each get $5 in to your account. It really encourages promotion and community.
You shouldn’t worry about the payment. Paypal is the payment system of choice. And, you can set your minimum payout from $1 to $1,000,000. It’s up to you to choose to receive your royalty payments either as 100% cash, 100% charity of your choice, or a mixture of cash and charity.
