One of the greatest benefits of using PLR is that you buy it, and it’s your own.
Remember: It’s as if you have a staff of writers who have submitted a draft to you. You can literally do anything that you want with this piece of material.
You can take out your “red pen” and strike through items, change wording, and insert some of your episodes. All of that together makes the article yours. You give it your very own voice..
Lots of PLR content is authored by experts in specific fields who write in general ways to make the content widely usable. From a six-thousand-word eBook to a series of blog posts, PLR content strives to reach a wide audience.
As a PLR user, your audience is narrow and focused, which means you probably want to customize your PLR and give it your voice. But this takes a minuscule amount of time compared to researching and writing from scratch.
Pay attention to the suggested uses
A lot of PLR is generated with a specific use in mind. Pay attention to the suggestions and instructions given by the author to use the PLR to its fullest potential. Your PLR packet will have suggested uses for your PLR .
There are so many ways to use your PLR. When you purchase your packet, look for some unique ways to use it.
Some PLR companies offer support via social media groups where you can be a part of a community using PLR. Groups have great collaboration and share ideas for great ways to use PLR that you may not have thought of on your own.
I like to establish a system which gets the most use out of my PLR. When you have a routine, it’s quick and easy to bap, bap, bap your uses, and not take a long time.
My system changes from time to time, but one such system goes like this:
- Post a new post to my blog.
- Post the feature image to Twitter, which links back to the blog.
- Post the same article to LinkedIn and Facebook.
- Post the image to Pinterest – and sometimes, Instagram.
- The blog automatically posts to my Amazon Author Page
- Sometimes i send out emails which link back to my blog post.
Now this bap, bap, bap method is done in less time than you can imagine.
When you have your article written and ready to go, you can easily see that many uses of the same material will get you noticed out in that cyber world.
Now let’s be honest. There is PLR, and then there is PLR!!
I have been blogging for awhile now, and I have purchased from many different vendors. Sometimes a wow sales page and lots of promises wind up with lousy material. When that happens to me, I make a note to never purchase form that source again.
Yet there are some vendors who do a terrific job. In fact, when you purchase these products, you don’t even want to make many changes. They are like something you would have written. Great grammar, wording, and tone. You love the voice or style of this PLR provider.
When you find such a provider, stick with them. If they offer a membership or an easy way to get their content – join. By sticking with a few providers, you’ll be sure that your content will have similar style and consistency. You’ll spend less time editing, and more time developing other areas of your business.
Re-use, recycle, and repurpose
Content, in general, can be used in many ways. Don’t think of PLR as once and done content. You can modify and re-use it over and over again. Making tweaks here and there allows you to keep the content fresh. This means your investment goes even farther than it would with single-use.
You might want to combine individual posts to make an e-book.
Or, what about this?
Record a podcast episode. Or broadcast a video presentation.
Well-written information can be used in many different ways. (Your brainstorming might come up with some ideas no one else has thought about).
So there you have it. Three more tips for successful PLR use.
The main thing is to plunge in. Find a PLR provider you like, and start the journey.
There’s a sea of knowledge out there. We just have to go find it.
