New: SquidBids – Squidoo for eBay Sellers

Posted on Oct 07 2007

Following the successful SquidWho launch, Squidoo HQ has made another re-branding of the lens-building platform and just released

If you’re an eBay seller, go and make a SquidBids lens. The steps to create the lens also help you pre-fill the modules, making a lens filled with content ready for you to customise. The key being, customise it!

The lenses have a cool layout too. Here is one I made to test it out as a bonus for a BuildMyLens customer (although she doesn’t know it yet) – 

There is a really good post about SquidBids at Mashable, and you can read it here.

    Squidoo comes through again, what a great idea!

    If you are an eBay Seller, you must create Squidbids lenses!

    It’s free and will drive traffic to your eBay Store or listings, what’s better than that? And besides, it’s fun!

    I have made one for each of our product lines

    Lewis, thanks for bring this to the attention of eBay sellers.

  6. Another great feature from Squidoo, keeps me wondering what they will make next!

  7. Is there a way to make a referral link for getting people to join SquidBids?
