Step Two: Write Your Presell
Now, it’s really important to write your lens’ content in a certain way, so pay attention.
Here’s the most important part: you don’t want to be too promotional when creating Squidoo lenses.
This is a sure-fire way to get your lens flagged and removed. You need to be providing quality information. You can openly recommend the product you’re promoting, but be sure to frame it as a “review” rather than a promotion.
How do we do this?
By writing an awesome presell!
A presell is an article that promotes a product- but in a very subtle way. When you can master presells, you’ll be able to persuade people to buy your affiliate products without even trying!
I always write my presells in the first person. I tell the reader about myself and about the problems that I have faced, which is what the reader is likely facing. For example, if you’re promoting a product on how to lose weight, talk about how you also struggled to lose weight. Of course, only do this if it’s true and never make anything up.
The more you can connect with your reader and describe the emotions and issues they are experiencing, the more they are likely to buy when you recommend your affiliate product.
To understand why presells work so effectively, think about this: Where would you rather eat at- a restaurant your best friend recommends to you, or a restaurant that called you up and try to sell themselves to you.
It’s mind-blowing how high your conversion rate can be when you write a good presell. Many times, your prospects don’t even need to see their sales letter before taking out their credit card and buying your recommended product.
You want to stick your affiliate link in your article a 3-4 times through out your lens. The best way to do this is to write your link as a call to action rather than a contextual link.
Once you finish your presell article and added your affiliate links, you’re almost done. You can include additional widgets, such the Amazon recommendation widget to increase your profits even more.
Step Three: Drive Traffic (Outsourced SEO)
The final step is to start driving traffic to your Squidoo lens. The easiest way to do this is with outsourced SEO. There are many great gigs on Fiverr that give you rank-boosting backlinks for only a few bucks.
The entire process should take less than hour- even less once you set up a few of these. Once you have a few lenses up and running, you’ll truly understand the power of Squidoo and why it’s one of the best ways to make money fast.
