Put your lens on!
Posted by Jackie R. on January 15, 2007
It’s time to put your lens on and take a ride with our squid called Squidoo!
Squidoo is one of the hottest Web 2.0 social networking site at this time. It comes with a twist though. At Squidoo, you create your presence through a ‘lens’. In fact, squidoo is a website full of lenses and there are more than 50,000 at this moment of writing. The lens as the name implies, means the way or perspective or view of how you look at things. That can be anything from as simple as your creative cooking skills to something as unusual as how to be a dog psychic!
Lenses are free. You can create as many as you want at Squidoo at any topic that come to your mind and those ideas that you want the online community to know or learn from you. Once you register your Squidoo account, you will be asked to create a lens immediately. I will be creating a new lens now for CEP Coast because it is my favorite program at this moment and I wish more people to know more about it.
Once you have your lens created, you need to add some information to your lens. You can give a detailed description, place a photo, place a video or simply add new modules to your lens so that it is more interactive and informative to convey your information to your target mass. Of course, you need to input the keywords for your lens. We are at the age of tagging.
When you have added the necessary information to your lens, you can publish your lens. It will be your own unique sales page that can be shared by many people. How you are going to utilize your new powerful marketing tool is all up to your creativity and imagination!
