Whether you are into social media networks or not, Squidoo is a must-use idea for nonprofits, social entrepreneurs and everyday people trying to help raise funds for their venture. By simply creating a lens (a.k.a. page) about your passions you can raise money from Squidoo’s profit-sharing advertising and donation modules.
For those of you that didn’t read my last article, I do social media marketing for Ashoka. A few months ago I setup their main lens (see below). I also created other lenses that would help inform people about Ashoka’s initiatives like Youth Venture and Social Entrepreneurship. These lenses were great successes in that they informatively granted access to pictures, videos and the true emotion behind these initiatives.
