Most PLR buyers tend to be very regimented in the use of their PLR content. For example, if they purchase a bundle of PLR articles, all they can think of doing is posting these articles on their blog as blog posts.
That’s about all they know how to do. The experienced PLR buyers know how to get maximum mileage from their PLR articles by using them in a myriad of ways other than the most obvious way - to generate more traffic, leads and sales.
Below you’ll find 5 ways to turn your PLR articles into money content. You may have seen these methods mentioned on the sales page. But very often, the tips are not applied… so let’s look at them more closely.
1. Compile them into eBooks
If you hope to sell a book but you don’t wish to write one, combining several different PLR articles is one way to put together an eBook quickly. Generally, a good book will be around 8,000 to 10,000 words.
Since most PLR articles will be in the 400 to 500-word range, you may need to combine 20 to 25 PLR articles to create a book.
It will require effort on your part because you’ll have to find articles that cover different points and topics for the niche you’re catering too.
You’ll also need to ‘smoothen’ out the kinks in the content so it all reads smoothly as a book without appearing like a disjointed mishmash of articles (which it is).
Success with this technique is being able to create a book that reads well and is informative. The benefit of creating a book in this manner is that it will be totally unique.
Unlike other PLR eBooks which come in ‘Biz-In-A-Box’ packages that everyone has, yours will be unique. Of course, a clever strategy would be to use the sales page that comes in these done for you packages to sell your own compiled eBooks.
You can use the sales copy from the package but create your own graphics so that your product looks and sounds different from all the cookie cutter content out there.
You’ll now have fantastic books that you can sell and cash in on.
2. Use them as guest posts
Guest posts are a method of traffic generation. Basically, you’ll approach popular blogs/sites in your niche and ask the site owners if they’ll publish an article or two from you. In return, all you’ll want is a link back to your site.
It will allow you to siphon some traffic from the popular site to your own site. This is an effective method that will reap results the more often you do it. Your efforts will snowball over time.
The limitation here is that almost all site owners want unique content that has never been published before. So, you’ll need to either rewrite a PLR article yourself or hire someone on Upwork to do the job for you.
Since the research is already done for you in the PLR article, writing a brand new article using the existing research will be a much easier task.
This is one method of using PLR articles to drive traffic to your own sites and indirectly generate an income from them.
3. Break them down into email content
If you have an email list (and you should be building one), using snippets of PLR articles in your emails will help you to deliver value. You’ll not need to write an entire email out.
The PLR content you use in your emails should be informative and engaging. Remember to add a link in your email that readers can click for more information.
This link could either point to a sales page for a product you’re promoting/selling or it could be to a monetized blog post.
4. Monetized blog posts
Monetized blog posts are posts that contain links to products the readers can buy or they may contain advertising. The crux of the matter is that there are opportunities for you to make money from the post. That’s the key point.
Copying and pasting a PLR article on your blog is well and good, but what’s the purpose of it? Information? Sales?
A monetized blog post can be a PLR article that has been posted with the intention of making sales. Insert links to affiliate products or products you’re selling.
Even posts which are not monetized should have internal links on them which link to other posts that are monetized. This makes your site ‘sticky. It keeps visitors on your site longer and increases your chances of making a sale.
5. Paid newsletters
A paid newsletter is not only a recurring source of income, but can make you passive sales too (if you add affiliate links inside). You can easily put together a newsletter which has anywhere from 5 to 10 pages of content.
Keep your pricing around $7 to $10 and your subscribers will look upon this membership as a small expense and be less likely to quit. If you’re selling tangible products (e.g. keto meters), you can have a $7 newsletter that provides keto recipes and tips every month as an upgrade or a bump to your offer.
You’ll have several interested people take you up on the offer and you’ll be making sales monthly. Of course, PLR articles can be used to create these newsletters easily.
By now you’ll realize that a PLR article is NOT just a piece of content to post on your blog. It’s a tool that can generate traffic and sales for you too. So, put your PLR articles to use effectively and you’ll be amazed at how effective they are.
