How to Make Money with PLR
If you're new to the affiliate marketing game, or maybe just reassessing how you get things done, you've
probably heard a lot about PLR and how much value it holds for aspiring marketers.
It's inexpensive, it's bought in bulk, and it helps provide the massive content source you need to get anything
truly effective done with your websites.
But, how do you actually turn those simple articles and eBooks into real profits?
How do you maximize your use of PLR?
Here are a few of my favourite thoughts on the concept.
It's Not Original Content
The first thing you have to remember is that PLR is not original content. It doesn't have the same intrinsic
value that a unique, original piece of content would have. You have something that anywhere from 25 to 100 other
marketers also have, which immediately makes it less valuable on its own merits.
But, that doesn't mean you cannot use it in many others ways.
First, you can distribute PLR as is in many locations. It works wonders for email newsletters that need new
content on a weekly basis. If you have 20 or 30 lists you maintain from different sites, it would be nearly
impossible to generate that much content consistently.
PLR can make the difference, without needing much tweaking to the original text.
You can also post PLR content to a blog, where it can be used as a filler post. This can be dangerous if you're
developing organic search rankings, because Google will see it as duplicate content. But, if you're using PPC and
just need landing page content, it works quite well.
Repurposing PLR Content
Another way you can use your PLR to flip a true profit is to repurpose it. Notice how I didn't use the word
"rewrite"? That's because you really don't need to rewrite it, especially if it's not going into search
A great trick I've seen used a few time is to take a set of 20 PLR articles on a niche topic and combine them
into a free report. You'll need to write some transitions and an introduction, but most of the rest is just
Instead of spending $150 to get a report written on Elance, you can spend $20 for a set of articles that hit the
If you're up for a bit of rewriting, you can take a PLR article and rewrite it to about 30-50% unique status -
something a quality writer can do for a much lower rate than a full write-up. Once you've made the PLR unique, it
can be posted in article directories to get quality backlinks
back to your website, used on blogs for search rankings, or redistributed on your websites.
Creating Info Products with PLR
A trick that many product vendors use that you can use to generate bonuses and free content, is to take a PLR
eBook (that permits rewriting and editing) and change it enough to claim the copyright.
Some PLR content you'll receive is, at best, subpar compared to a real eBook. But, it takes very little work to
edit it, format it, add screenshots and rewrite about 30% of the content.
Once you've done that, you have a viable - and more importantly, valuable - product that can be distributed to
build your list and flip a profit later on.
As an affiliate marketer, your entire purpose is to generate
leads and drive conversions. The easiest way to do that is distribute valuable content that builds trust and
pushes people to click on affiliate links.
If you can get that content for less money and guarantee a longstanding level of value, you'll always do better
in your endeavours.
