Using Private Label Rights Articles (PLR)
Maybe you’re not sure what Private Label Rights articles, commonly called PLR, are, so let’s ensure that we are talking about the same thing here. Private Label Rights articles are articles that you hold the right to publish as your own, but which were written by someone else. My PLR ebooks were written by me.
The right to use the articles as your own may have been conferred on you as a gift or, more commonly, because you paid for them. There are two main points that affect the value of the PLR: 1] the quality of the article and 2] how many times it has been used.
In turn, the quality of the article is affected by the style and quality of the writing; spelling; research; etc .. PLR is often sold to many webmasters. If the PLR that you possess has been sold to only a few people, all well and good, but if thousands of people have used it, well, Google is not going to take much notice of your copy.
This situation has a simple solution. Just rewrite the articles in the PLR ebooks in your own style. Why buy an article, if you are going to have to rewrite it, you may ask? Well, if you trust its author, then the research will already have been done and it is considerably easier for most people to rewrite than to write an original piece.
Not only that, but if English is not your mother language, it is far simpler to change words, but keep the grammar than it is to write the whole thing from scratch. This is one of the best uses of articles in PLR ebooks.
Another is in newsletters and autoresponders, where you don’t care what Google thinks, because it has no access to these mailings. For example, if you had a list of subscribers who are interested in dogs, you could buy a few articles on dogs from a PLR writer and programme them to be sent out when you are on holiday or otherwise too busy to write articles of your own.
A pack of 15 articles would effectively give you 15 weeks off work, which is quite a lot, I’m sure you will agree. It helps enormously if the writer of the PLR organises the articles into PLR ebooks of tight niche subjects.
PLR is also a good way of getting a web site up quickly. For example, if you wanted to have a web site selling St Valentine’s Day Gifts, but you had left if a little late (or couldn’t write the content for yourself for the reasons given above), you could buy a pack of articles in a PLR ebook on, say, romantic gifts, use five articles to create a nice little five-page web site, put five in an autoresponder for subscribers and place five on article directories with links back to your new site.
How long would it take to set that up? Half-a-day? A whole day? Well, that’s not bad, is it? To have a whole web site, an autoresponder populated with messages and articles getting you attention and backlinks in a day!
Of course, I would always recommend rewriting PLR, even if only a little, just to put your own slant on it, but when you can get a dozen or more good 500-600 word articles in targeted PLR ebooks for less that $10 each, what have you got to lose?
Clicking on a link will take you to the online book stores of either Amazon, Smashwords, Lulu, or Xinxii, where you will be given more details about my PLR ebooks. These ebooks’ pages will open in a new window, so you will find it easy to return here.
