New Squidoo Job – More Money For Lensmasters $

Posted on Sep 04 2009

Money BagAccording to Seth Godin’s blog, Squidoo is hiring a sales pro.

Here is what the official lens says:

“Squidoo is one of the largest websites in the world, with millions of pages, half a million members, more traffic than and more than 20,000,000 page views a month. We’re hiring someone to run our ad and promotion sales efforts.”

Those are some impressive numbers! Half a million members! Crikey!

Squidoo aims to work directly with advertisers instead of just posting Google ads and Glam ads on your lenses, currently meaning some middle-man ad networks share the profits. This is good for us lensmasters because it will mean more ad money each month per lens.

Squidoo has a lot of influence and is going to use it to get a better deal.

But here’s the interesting bit….

“We’re focusing on more than just banners, leveraging our deep long tail of information combined with legions of motivated and talented users.”

What does that sound like to you?

I highly doubt ‘Paid Reviews’
Possibly a sponsored lens theme
InText links
Tag Page Specific Adverts

Interesting… Veeeery interesting…

    Hi Lewis,

    Thanks for keeping us up to date on what is happening with Squidoo. Your lenses and tutorials are awesome!

    I am very curious to see what happens and how it turns out. It looks like some good changes could be happening.

  6. Susan52 says:

    I was thrilled when I saw Seth’s post about this. Nothing but good news for Squidoo and no more worrying about totally inappropriate ads!

  7. JaguarJulie says:

    This sounds like such a great opportunity. I woke hubby up at 4am to chat with him about it. “Don’t we know some sales people which might want to consider this job?” So, I think he’s thinking about possible referrals.

  8. adez7 says:

    Squidoo just keeps getting better and better. This is a perfect example of the fact that “Rome was not built over night”, and Squidoo as it moves along into a force to be reckoned with, will go the total distance for its lensmasters.

    Thanks Lewis

  12. Lots of great info. I’ll have to come back for more. OK, where do I favorite and give 5 *’s? 😀
