Can you really make money writing articles for Squidoo ? This is the question that I asked my self over a year ago. I've received several payouts from writing online , however this is not a "how to". I'm just simply sharing my journey with you. If by chance, I happen to build wealth and change my status to Guru, I will update this lens to reflect that.
First things first. It's a slow and arduous process if you have limited
knowledge with HTML and SEO. You might want to research these terms, like I did, before you decide to write an article for Squidoo. I now have a functional knowledge of both, from blogging and creating various other social networking accounts. After I gained this information it was time to do some Squidoo research. This's what I'm sharing within this lens. All of the things that are helping me along the way.

The Many Ways I Write To Earn
Here are a few ways that I promote in order to get paid to write online:
1. Blogging- This was a no brainer for me. Even though, I don't consider myself a " writer ", I have a strong urge to get my thoughts out. Blogging helps me with this. It doesn't hurt to mention a Squidoo lens, or two, in my blog post either :)
2. Twitter- Every time I update a lens, I click that " Twitter " button that shows up after publishing. I haven't seen to much traffic this way but, I figure it couldn't hurt.
3. Facebook- Facebook brings me a good amount of traffic. I have a group on there with over 400 members, They like to get in on the action when they see something that interests them. There's a Facebook button, that shows up after you publish too.
4.Ezinearticles- Perhaps my least favorite but, I do see traffic from it. I may do an article for this lens in the near future. I put my link at the end of the article to entice readers to find out more. Just don't give too much information in the article, you want the reader to click the URL to be redirected to the lens.
5. Youtube- This is my favorite source to promote anything. I have around 2700 subscribers and they enjoy my articles on Hair and Skin. There's also a " Bulletin" feature that allows you to send all of your subscribers a short message. I usually slip a Squidoo link in there.
You can get paid to write online with various sites. Squidoo, just happens to be one site that actually pays!
Amazon Links In Your Online Articles
Get Paid Commission of Amazon Products With Squidoo
If I only knew the power of adding Amazon modules to my online articles when I first started. Gosh, when I think of all the potential sales that I could have made. Ugh! Well, I can't cry over spilled milk!
I've been editing my old lenses to include amazon links and modules. It only took a few days for my top traffic lens to start receiving sales. If you have a " How-To" lens then you can include the products that will help you achieve the results that the reader has sought out to gain information about. However, some people are compulsive shoppers so, they may click on anything that interest them.
Another great thing about amazon modules is that you get sales even if it's not directly related to your lens. For instance. If someone comes to my Shea Butter Lens, and decides to look at shoes before they check out..... I get a commission off of that as well! Yes, I say It's a great feature indeed. To bad I overlooked this in the beginning. I hope you learn from my mistake!
Adding amazon links to your online articles will help you get paid commission off of the sells make with Squidoo! It's well worth it!
Get Paid With PayPal For Your Articles

Squidoo Payments - Get Paid To Write
Generally, Squidoo pays you before the 15th of each month. I usually get my payments a few days before the fifteenth. Paypal sends me an email to notify me of a new transaction.
Like anything, you get out of it, what you put in. I enjoy writing. It was easy to join Squidoo and get paid to write in my spare time.I have no training as a writer and I consider myself " a work in progress" I do however, have a passion for helping others. What are you passionate about? When you think of something, write a lens about it. It's just that simple!
