  2. 2. What is squidoo?<br />Squidoo is a web 2.0 site where you design webpages (lenses) about ANYTHING you can image<br />You add various modules and build pages.<br />On these pages, you can link to companies’ products and sell them. When people buy them, you make a commission.<br />You also can make money from traffic and lensrank.<br />AND- you can even get points and trophies for doing certain things on Squidoo!<br />

  4. 4. Not familiar with squidoo?<br />If you are not familiar with Squidoo, then check out this presentation about<br />How To Squidoo<br />NOTE:<br />Before building a lens, you should watch this<br />presentation as it explains how to find keywords and effectively use Squidoo.<br />
  5. 5. Creating a lens<br />Simply click the “Create a Lens” button from your dashboard to begin.<br />Click here<br />
  6. 6. Step 1: Topic<br />Once you have researched keywords, type in your main keyword in the title.<br />Or, you can select from one of the templates. The templates<br />basically set you up with relative modules for your topic.<br />
  7. 7. Step 2: details<br />Create a URL with your main keywords.<br />Select a topic, and subtopic, and possibly another subtopic.<br />Rate your lens appropriately.<br />
  8. 8. Step 3: Adding tags<br />Tags = Keywords People Search To Find Your Page<br />You can leave this part until later as you find more keywords. <br />When you’re finished, type the code and click “Build My Lens!”<br />
  9. 9. Adding modules<br />Click “Add Modules” at the top, or select some from the toolbar on the right side of your screen.<br />
  10. 10. Selecting modules<br />The three basic modules any lens needs are:<br />Amazon<br />Text<br />Guestbook<br />Search for modules here.<br />
  11. 11. Reordering modules<br />You can move the order by using the “sort modules” toolbar on the right side.<br />It’s best to have the<br />guestbook module<br />at the bottom of your<br />lens to encourage <br />visitors to comment<br />before leaving.<br />
  12. 12. The title module<br />This module comes on every lens.<br />Add a title, picture, and a short blurb about your lens (200 char. Min)<br />Also, use the tabs to turn on the Table of Contents module, and Discovery (which allows other similar lenses to be found on the side).<br />
  13. 13. Text module<br />Type in a title, and simply add text! You can add up to 10,000 characters in one text module!<br />You can also add a picture if you want!<br />You can use some HTML codes here.<br />
  14. 14. Amazon module<br />Give it a title, and add a description if you want.<br />If you choose , then you will need to enter search terms of products you want to be displayed.<br />If you choose , then you need to find the products on Amazon, and type in the ASIN or URL into the field, then click “Add Product”.<br />If you go to “Display Options”, you will find other options that you can select, such as if you want the picture, availability, list price, etc.<br />
  15. 15. Guestbook module<br />Again, add a title, and a description if you like.<br />Then simply select options on how you want others to comment back.<br />This is where you will go to approve comments.<br />The options are quite self-explanatory.<br />
  16. 16. Now for Other modules…<br />The following are other modules that will help make your lens look even nicer!<br />Most are very easy to use. Simply add them from the “Add Modules” bar and follow the directions in them!<br />If you are having trouble with a module and do not see it in this presentation, then email<br />brittermedia@gmail.com for help!<br />Keep going!<br />
  17. 17. RSS: add your blog module<br />Put blog feeds on your lens<br />Give a title<br />Type in the URL of the blog you want to follow.<br />Type in the # of headlines you want, and how often to check for them.<br />Visitors can click links and<br />go straight to your blog!<br />
  18. 18. Google maps module<br />Show a location on your lens<br />Give it a title and description.<br />Put in a location (or multiple locations if you select Advanced).<br />Check your display options.<br />
  19. 19. eBay module<br />More ways to make money!<br />This is similar to the Amazon modules, except you will be listing products from eBay.<br />Title it, give it a description if you wish, and simply fill in the blanks!<br />Select items, or let eBay pick them for you.<br />You can even choose to list products from a certain store/seller on eBay!<br />HINT:<br />It is much easier to select “Let eBay Pick”, because products come in and out of stock so quickly.<br />

  23. 23. Countdown module<br />Remind visitors of a special date!<br />Title it and give it a description if you want.<br />Name the event and put the date down and get a cool countdown timer!<br />

  26. 26. Text with big picture<br />For those huge JPG’s<br />This works just like a text module. <br />You don’t have to add text! If you need to upload a huge picture, then this is your module!<br />
  27. 27. Amazon spotlight<br />For one great product.<br />This works JUST like the regular Amazon ones, except that you can only show one product.<br />Works exactly like the regular<br />Amazon modules.<br />
