It’s Seller Wednesday! This week we’re focusing on a fun way to share your store – a Squidoo lens! Squidoo is a great and easy tool to create mini sites that drive traffic and interest to your store. Many Zazzlers already use lenses, but if you don’t then see below to learn how to set one up (it’s easy!).

First step: Go here – http://www.squidoo.com/zazzle/hq
2nd step: Enter your Gallery Handle, a description of your art, choose what category best suits what type of page you’re making, and pick keywords that are relevant (similar to tags you use for products on Zazzle). There’s also a bonus section where you can link to your personal website/blog!
3rd Step: Once you’ve entered all the info from step 2, click on the “Make my Promo Page” button. It will take you to a preview page, where you can get a basic idea of how your lens is going to look.
If you like it, click the “I want it (and will personalize it now) button on the right hand side of the page underneath the orange flower.
4th Step: Choose your URL. It’s important to note that once you chose the URL for your lens it cannot be changed, so choose wisely! Once you find the perfect name, hit continue.
5th Step: Here you’ll go through and register (pick out a screen name, etc), if you don’t already have a Squidoo account.
Final Step: After you enter in all your info, it will take you to your Squidoo page, where you can add a picture and edit the content (you can preview your lens to get it just the way you like it). Once your page looks as fabulous as you want it to, click “Publish” at the top of the page and viola!!
All done? Share your lenses and Squidoo marketing ideas in the comments below, and we’ll post the best lenses on the blog! If you send it via Twitter, be sure to include #SellerWed in your tweet.
