I just got an email from Squidoo (aff) saying that they’re moving into their next phase of actually paying their ‘lens-masters’. They also announced three new money making modules:
- They’ve added a new eBay module which allows people to promote eBay auctions and earn a commission on items sold (if bought by the person you refer.
- They’ve added an affiliate program so that if you refer a Squidoo user you’ll get $5 when they reach $15 of earnings themselves (thats why the above Squidoo link is an aff link).
- Lastly they’ve got a new partnership with CafePress with a new module for that.
They also announced earlier in the week on their blog that they’ve just past the 20,000 lens mark.
It will be interesting to watch what impact the ability to make money from Squidoo will have upon the number of people joining and the rate at which they post. I’ve posted previously that one of my lenses was among the most profitable (it’s down the list now) and my conclusion of finding that out was that if you’re dedicated (and smart) enough you could probably make some decent money from the program – but like anything, it’s a long term and hard work proposition.
