Building a Website Using PLR
For the purpose of this article, I am going to assume that you are a complete novice at building websites, if you are not, there are other articles on building blogs and websites elsewhere on this site. This short article though will teach you the basics of how to make money online with a website by building a website using PLR.
When I first started building a website using PLR., I would build my website offline, then go looking for a domain name, but things have altered for beginners now, and it is better to start elsewhere in the creation process.
First you will need to check out the content available, so you can choose a name and a theme for your website. Select a theme for your site from the Private Label Rights (PLR) packages here: PLR content and buy one that takes your interest. These packages contain fifteen articles and are themed around a concept. That costs $7.99
Second, you will need somewhere to store your website, somewhere where visitors can find it by typing its name. There are thousands of website hosts. Look for a package that costs about $5 per month – it-s all you need to host dozens of websites.
Then, think about a name for your site and purchase it (you can do this at Hostgator too). That costs less than $10
Now you have all the raw materials for your website. So, next, you decide whether you want a traditional static website, ie one where the information remains on pages, or a blog, where the front page can change frequently automatically and other people can interact with comments.
Whichever you choose, you have already paid for it, so you just have to either choose a template (free from Hostgator) and activate it in their SiteBuilder app, or activate WordPress (also free) and choose a blog theme that suits your content.
Now, you also have the framework for your Internet site.
Next, choose an article from the pack, rewrite it to make it original, sign it and publish it to your site. Do this as a page in WordPress rather than as a post, then do it four more times.
Now you have a decent five-page niche site of quality, original articles. At this point, you should look for something for visitors to spend their money on, so search for affiliate deals in your niche and add the banners (or whatever) as the company directs you too.
Now you are ready for visitors or traffic, in the parlance. You can do this by rewriting one of the other ten articles and posting it to article directories with a link back to your home page and the most relevant of the other pages in the ‘Author Bio’, which is called deep-linking (it impresses the search engines, which should give your site better visibility in the search results.
If you are using WordPress for building a website using PLR, you can also post this piece to your blog as a post NOT a page. Use tags and hyper-links to associate it with one of your pages.
Some people say to leave time between posts, but I don’t know. I used to just crack on with it, but I suppose it depends whether this is a hobby, a sideline, a project or a business. For me it was the latter.
The greatest benefit of using PLR in this way, is that the content is there for you. You need do no research, just rewrite it in your own words. This saves time, and is a godsend to students of English as a foreign language and TEFOL/TESOL teachers.
If there are any terms here you don’t understand about building a website using PLR, just ask in a comment below, or do a search – they are quite standard.
So, first go here and look around PLR content
Then go here and get a host Hostgator
