What are PLR products?
Private label rights articles (PLR) and also products (videos, podcasts and scripts) are an inexpensive way to add content to your website, without taking the time to create your own unique content. They provide an way to create a new blog easily and quickly or to supplement the content in an existing blog.
Where can they be found?
Several PLR membership sites and some forums provide well written private label rights articles (videos and podcasts) for purchase for less than a dollar each. PLR articles are usually made available for purchase in packages or as part of a membership. PLR articles may edited/altered and used as you wish, without backlinking to a website. This makes them an attractive alternative to using free reprint articles.
Rewriting PLR articles
Some website owners use RSS feeds to add content automatically to their sites. Others create a brief introduction and conclusion leaving the text in the body of the article (video, podcast or script) unchanged. Most purchasers rewrite the articles as they have not necessarily been written with any particular keyword density in mind. Rewriting the PLR articles serves four purposes:
- an opportunity to inject tone, personality and site specific branding;
- an opportunity to optimize using site specific keywords and keyword density so search engines index them and make them available to readers via search;
- an opportunity to create effective headlines;
- an opportunity to create an article that will pass though copyscape and avoid Google’s duplicate content penalities.
PLR’s can be used in conjunction with blogging several ways:
Fresh blog content
PLR articles are time savers. Whether you extract portions and use them as individual tips or use the entire article, you can use them on your blog as fresh content.
Newsletters and reports
If you have a list of either email addresses or postal mailing addresses then PLR articles can be used as a source of excerpts and quotes to create newsletters and reports. By compiling several PLR articles on the same topic, and rewriting them you can create a newsletter or report, convert it into a PDF file and make it available to your readers and subscribers on your blog.
Ebooks and Ecourses
Ebooks are one of the more popular formats for private label rights content. An average ebook is about 30 – 40 pages in length. If you purchase a package of PLR articles based on a specific theme, you can easily create an ebook or an ecourse. By compiling a larger number of PLRs on a specific topic and rewriting you can create either one or both, convert them into PDF file format and make them available to your readers and subscribers on your blog. Alternatively, you can purchase PLR ebooks, divide the content up and create shorter reports, newsletters and/or blog posts.
Podcasting and videos
PLR articles can be used to create new content for podcasts and videos. Or you can purchase PLR videos and/or podcasts, divide the content up and create shorter reports, newsletters and/or inclusions for your blog posts.
A blogger can make money selling reports, ebooks and ecourses created from PLR articles and as these would be your own creations , you can also offer resell or master resell rights if you choose to.
