Why would you want to add an optin form to your squidoo lense? To Build a list? Maybe to start some hype about your Xsitepro website.

Well, its really important to expand your thinking beyond the confines of Xsitepro. There are many platforms for building and producting websites and webpages, some harder than others. Squidoo offers a free website with little effort and one of the greatest benefits of a squidoo lense is the ability to point a link back to your Xsitepro Website……and links are the holy grail of the interent.

So, while using a squidoo lense, you get a free link back to your website but you can do so much more. Today I wanted to talk a little about putting an optin form in your squidoo lense. You may or may not know, squidoo prevented you from putting an optin form on your lense….however, I’m about to show you a trick about how to get an opt-in form into you lense to take advantage of any traffic you might get there.

I know at one point in time Squidoo allowed you to paste your optin code into a lense. Then they allowed you to put your optin code into a squidoo lense using iframes. They stopped allowing both of those methods. Finally the only way to put an optin code was by creating an image of the optin box and putting that image into your squidoo lense and then linking to an off site landing page with the real optin code. Not very good for list building!

Finally there is a way to easily add your optin code to a squidoo lense using widgets. In fact, you can create a widget for just about any snippet of code including things like Amazon, Ebay and other affiliate program.

Well…I stumbled on a squidoo lense that actually tells you how to create a widget for just about any chunk of html coding….including your optin form code.

Stop over at Clearspring Tutorial and you’ll discover some tricks you can use to get a variety of html coding in your squidoo lense’s that was previously banned and from what I read, it is totally legal to use widgets for creating html or javascript optin code in your squidoo lenses.
