Welcome to the third installment of my Squidoo Evolutionreview. I have made a lot of progress today and I am eager to share it with you.
I have actually been working on this for a while and progress is a bit slow. That’s because I ran into a few snafus that I had to solve. First of all, Squidoo retired one of the modules that she suggested. Second of all, one of the tools she suggested to use to help create our lenses is down. The site itself is working but the feature I need is down.
One thing I am enjoying so far about Squidoo Evolution is Kelly Stone’s devotion to keeping things ethical on Squidoo. Right from the beginning, she tells us to play by Squidoo’s rules. I’ve been devoted to Squidoo for a long time and it upsets me to see people try to take advantage of the site.
But then, I already knew that she would be ethical because of Squidoo Queen.
I have to tell you, I am only on Page 10 and I already know I like this better than Squidoo Queen. It makes so much more sense and is a lot simpler to implement.
I have decided that I am eager to start using Squidoo Evolution to hopefully become successful at Squidoo so I am going to write an other review post so I can begin. Will my efforts actually be successful? I am not sure yet – we’ll need to work through the product together to find out.
So, I just took a look at the sales letter. Now, I jumped in and purchased the product without reading the sales letter because I simply wanted it. But I can tell you that the letter is very clean and not filled with hype. Just some claims and graphics. But I am looking at the letter with a level of trust because I have purchased her products in the past.
In my mind, I have three ways I make money online. These are
I’ve spent plenty of time talking about the first two through my posts and reviews. So, I thought I would change things around a bit and let you know of some fun, random things I like to do to make money while watching TV at night after all the rest of my work is done.
My next review project is for Squidoo Evolution by Kelly Stone and this will be the first review for a product that I haven’t read yet. However, as a disclaimer, this is a new, revamped follow on to Squidoo Queen – a product that I did have and implement at one point.
That is exactly why I purchased Squidoo Evolution. Not only am I a fan of Kelly Srone’s work, but I am hoping that this eBook will help solve a problem I am having with Squidoo. I signed up for that site shortly after it began and have been a huge fan ever since. My earnings never reached into the spectacular range but I always had fun there and I did make some extra cash.
Over the course of the past few weeks, I have taken to hear the things I learned in Ghostwriting Cash and applied them to my business and I’ve learned a few things about myself in the process.
First of all, I have learned that since I have been a ghostwriter for a really long time, I found that trying to implement the strategies as is held me back a little bit. I am not saying the product isn’t good for people like me – it is – but I tried to run the experiment as if I was a beginner.
In the end, I couldn’t allow myself to accept work that had me at $5 or $10 a page because I am well past that point. So I placed some bids on a freelance site and ended up retracting them because the client wouldn’t have paid what my time is worth.
I feel that I need to update all of you on what I have been up to. I’ve started a few things here and haven’t followed through.
There is a simple reason for this – I have a lot going on at once with my business and I had no idea how to manage my work flow in a way that didn’t overwhelm me.
You’ll be happy to know that I went to Dunkin Donuts today, ordered a medium iced latte, and sat there with my pen and a notebook and began the process of figuring it out. Once the latte was finished, I moved my stuff to the library and continued the project there.
It paid off. I figured it out.
We all know that search engine optimization is important for getting traffic and customers to your website. However, simply searching for keywords that are relevant to your business isn’t enough.
Different keywords have different purposes and usually indicate different phases of the buying process.
- Information driven. Some keywords indicate that the searcher is looking for information. For example, the keyword “slr digital camera” is used when the customer is searching for information on this category of cameras.
- Specific information. Once the customer is further along in the buying process, he will start to search for more specific information such as “best slr digital cameras” or “slr digital camera reviews”. At this stage, they are starting to get a feel for which specific models to target to do further research.
Well, I am excited to be rolling forward with finally setting up my PLR site and with this PLR ATM review. The sooner I read and implement the strategies the better off I’ll be.
It is so embarrassing but I have thought about doing this for a few years – having my own plr marketplace. Can you imagine how far into this business I’d be if I wrote one page of content a day?
My advice to you is not to wait. If you think that you want to do this, start writing content for it now. I can’t believe how much time I’ve wasted.
I thought I would give you an update on two of the experiments I have been running – Fiverr and Bubblews. Both have not been what I expect.
Fiverr is a waste of time.
Back in 2010 when I posted my first Fiverr gig, people purchased them right away. I’ve reactivated that gig on several occasions and got nothing. At one point, I had the gig active for a month and still no one wanted to purchase my services.
I spent a small amount of time promoting my gig. The only thing I didn’t do was post a video – but I didn’t back then either. I have a 100% rating on the site, too.
