Can You Make Money Selling PLR Products?

You know the old saying where a good salesman can sell snow to an Eskimo? Well, even though PLR products are ubiquitous, it is indeed possible to make money selling them as well. Don’t believe me? Read on and find out why you don’t need to be as good as the salesman who can sell now to an Eskimo in order to sell PLR products:

What Is PLR?

If you’re relatively new to the Internet marketing world, then it’s possible you won’t know what PLR actually is. The acronym stands for Private Label Rights and in essence it refers to content which you can purchase (or sometimes get for free) and then rebrand with your own name.

PLR products are basically generic contentThink of it as equivalent to the generic brands of food products in your local supermarket – Kroeger and Giant Eagle don’t actually manufacture ketchup themselves. They hire companies who manufacture the stuff for dozens of others (often for name brands by the way) and slap their own labels on it. PLR works the same way.

Why You Can’t Make Money with PLR

No, I don’t believe this is true. However, I do want to expose why people believe PLR won’t make money. The reason is simple: the stuff is ubiquitous and will be ignored in a Google search. This means that even if you buy high quality PLR content, putting it on your blog or website is unlikely to help you make any real money. You need to be adding your own quality content in order to generate traffic.

Why You Can Make Money with PLR

The thing is, those who say this, while they are generally correct (though some PLR content, if it’s good, can be useful since it can keep your blog full of useful content for regular readers) aren’t being very imaginative. PLR content can for example be used to send out newsletters and you can also resell PLR software (there are hundreds of PLR software products available online, especially plugins for things like WordPress).

You Can Also Change PLR

The other thing that makes it possible to make money with PLR content is that it can be changed to make it something unique. I sometimes will look up PLR content and use it as the basis for content I need to write for a client. No, I won’t sell my client rehashed content. I don’t even use the same sentences. However, the research that was done doesn’t need to be redone when you use PLR.

Plus, if all you need is content for a blog or newsletter, you can very easily rewrite only some of the content and get it ranked in Google just like original content.

The Key to Using PLR

The key I think to using PLR content is to use it sparingly. Don’t make every blog post a PLR post. Intersperse them with real content. You should also ensure that you check the information and grammar/spelling in PLR content to ensure that it really is well written and well researched to ensure that you don’t end up putting up something which looks like junk.

Bottom Line

Yes, you can make money with PLR content. There are dozens of ways to use the stuff. However, you need to ensure that you use it correctly.

  1. Thanks for the information on PLR content never really knew about it until now. Just simply put PLR content into Google and your off at the races finding things for almost nothing when you compare it to the amount of time you would actually spend handwriting the information or typing it in alone.

    Thanks for the awesome TIP Yasir.

    1. Just remember though that PLR content should not be used as is when you put it out there. You need to change it up and make it unique to you.

  2. If you are good at developing Info Products such as E-Books and articles, then selling Private Label
    Content can be for you.

    If you already own a digital product you have created and are looking for additional
    sources of income, you can consider selling the Private Label Rights to other Internet Marketers.

    1. Good points all of them. You can of course also make money reselling other people’s PLR content. That’s what I do on occasion.

  3. PLR content is indeed something that can be utilized, but it’s always good to use it, as you said, sparingly. Nothing’s better than fresh, original content.

    1. Yes and no. There is an awful lot of crappy junk out there under PLR labels. You need to really know which ones are worth using and which ones are worthless.

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you liked it. Could you tell us what you liked so much though? (one more tip — when you leave a generic comment like this, it sounds a little like spam so some webmasters will delete it).

  6. OpenVBX are more better than the WillR because it has more convenient functions and options as compare to the any other software. I really like it because it is also much professional, having a very good appearance. However, on the other hand, the customization is not available in OpenVBX to its full extend but there are more in WillR.

    1. You can hire someone to do almost anything for you with the possible exception of dying. Depending on what you want to spend to do it, look at Elance or Guru. Or contact me: erichammer@gmx.com.
