The One Million Squidoo Lens Challenge

This is the daily log of the one million lens challenge. I will live off Squidoo income by making content-rich lenses, or make one million lenses! Which ever comes first. Basically, I’m not giving up. Follow me as I conquer Squidoo!

REALLY cool!

 I’m hoping that these lenses draw in visitors and get people looking at more than 1 lens.

Do you think they’ll accomplish this? What do you reckon?

4 more ebay lenses. They’re really fun to make. More fun than the home theater lenses. But the home theater ones are currently the most profitable so far!

Anyway, here are the 4 new lenses for today:

Day 36: 8 lenses! March 26, 2007

8 lenses, all about ebay.

eBay selling and marketing, actually.

Remember I made the eBay group?

These lenses are now all featured, all joined, everything. And it all looks really really cool.

They will be profitable too!

Profits So Far. End of month 1.

Take a look at the pending money on my Squidoo dashboard (from actual sales):

$0.71
$4.42
$0.33
$0.31
$0.24
$0.01
$0.42

$5.00 refer a friend
$6.35 clickbank sale
$1.95 hiddensearch.info adsense

So from 114 lenses in the first month of this challenge, (NOT including the unknown amount earned from the Squidoo co-op from adsense clicks and squidoffers money), earnings total $19.74. In the first month 🙂

And remember: some of those 114 lenses have only existed for a week. Some only for a few days. Some for two weeks, some for three weeks. But in the first month of making lenses my plan is already above target.

Amazing! So without including the lucrative SquidOffer money and adsense Squidoo co-op money, earnings per lens average roughly $0.20. In month 1.

And more profitable clickbank products are going to be featured on the upcoming ebay lenses, and they are going to be recommended more (unlike the clickbank products just listed on my first load of viral and affiliate marketing lenses) and so should make more sales.

I’m very excited because my original thinking was that if the average lens earned $0.10 per month then the plan for $6000 per month is do-able. Now, it’s extremely do-able!

Sometimes in your life you witness something special. And there are only a couple of other people who were there to witness it with you.

Finding this blog in the first month is one of those moments. Visit again tomorrow!
