Using PLR Articles For Your Affiliate Blog
When I started my first blog www.successgalore.co.cc, my first concern was how to get regular articles relevant to the niche blog site I had created. I spent a lot of days and hours researching for the content of each of my articles which were posted regularly to my blog. By the time I started www.dofamilyplanning.com with the help of Iyabo Oyawale, I had greater challenges getting articles for my blog, it wasn't easy at all. These days I can leverage on the power of PLR to create quick, easy to read and highly educative articles without much struggle or sweat.
Private Label Content (PLR) has been a hot topic in online business over the last couple of years. As more opportunities have emerged for people to make money with niche marketing, so has the demand for affordable content.
PLR is the perfect solution!
If you’re not familiar with how PLR works, it is essentially a way for multiple people to “share” content. Since they are all given access to use or change the content, they pay significantly less.
You can then use that PLR as it is and put your name on it as the author. Or you can divide it up, add to it, combine it with other content, create an audio product from it… the sky’s the limit! The more creative you are, the more unique your resulting product will be.
For online marketers, this can mean a savings of countless hours of work over writing all of their content themselves. This type of writing new content has saved me a lot of precious hours in posting new articles to each of my blogs as I have more than 12 blogs. It has even saved me thousands of dollars in outsourcing fees if I were to hire a professional writer.
But before you get started using PLR to grow your business, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind:
1. It’s important that you trust the source of the PLR content – Not all PLR content is created equal. There are lots of people publishing inferior content that no marketer in their right mind would use.
Remember, once you put your name on the content, your potential customers think that you wrote it. If it’s not well written, informative and interesting you’ll make a bad impression. Even if you’re just using the content on your website to improve search engine rankings, it has to be good quality because prospects will be reading it and judging you based on it.
2. The best use for PLR is not article site submissions – Submitting articles to article directories can be a great promotion strategy. And in the early days of PLR that is primarily how people used the content. But the article directories have gotten smarter and realized that multiple people are submitting the exact same articles. This makes the directory look bad – so they’ve tightened up their policies and no longer allow this.
But that’s alright, because that’s probably the worst use of PLR content. It just makes you look bad if you’re publishing the exact same article as someone else. Instead, smart marketers are using PLR content to create their own unique products. Customers are less likely to notice any overlap in the information if you do this well. By the time I started motivation4today.com, I had got the tricks of the game, I had become the master of the game.
3. Combining PLR is the easiest way to use it – If you use a piece of PLR content exactly as is, the odds are that you’ll be competing directly with someone else who is offering the same product. However, if you add other pieces of PLR content then you can create something that is uniquely yours. You still don’t have to do any writing, yet you have a product with different information then your competitors are offering.
PLR content truly is a great way to get the content you need for your business. It’s affordable, easily accessible and flexible. Whether you need content for your blog or want to create a complete product line, PLR is the perfect choice! Smart people like you should start investing little amount of money to buy PLR articles and materials to get quality content to your website.
