Professional blogging with Squidoo

| July 15, 2009

Squidoo is a social web building site also ideally suited to professional blogging and can help tell others about who you are and what you do.

Squidoo replaces blog posts with "modules" that can include articles, video graphics, links to online stores and affiliates, polls and lots more.

You can promote yourself, your business, your service, your product, your organization or just your content with related affiliate sales links, store links and adds to generate revenue.

Like blogs, the focus should be on content and offering something of value not simply advertising.

Also as with blogs, there are penalties for excessive promotion, this time perhaps not just by search engines like Google but with censure from the Squidoo community.

One more similarity to blogs? Squidoo pages (they're called "lenses") are most successful when updated on a regular basis.

Finally, Squidoo is social. The overall site is an interactive community and the individual pages can incorporate comments and other reader interaction while collecting fans for your profile.

Does all of this sound a bit time consuming? Well, you can also hire a professional to create and maintain your Squidoo lens for you. want to know more. Contact us about professional blogging for Squidoo.

    I am interested in learning more about how I could use Squidoo. I am planning to create a lense for good things in life, e.g., tea, wine, chocolate, chile pepper.

    What, no coffee? Just kidding. Squidoo advertises that its lenses take only minutes to build, but frankly building them right and maintaining them over time can be time consuming. Also, volume can be key with Squidoo and many lens masters run a number of sites. The question is whether you enjoy creating content and building lenses or whether you view them as more of a business and would prefer to get someone else to set up an initial site or even manage one (or several) over time for you. Looking at the list of items above, I would suggest that a group of niche lenses might be more successful than a single catch-all site.
