How to Make Money With PLR

Using PLR (Private Label Right) products can be one of the easiest ways of getting started making money on the Internet. PLR has become very big in the Internet marketing world, you can find PLR products for almost any niche, often at very low prices. But it is not always easy to find good PLR products, the quality of many PLR products is poor.

Internet marketers use PLR products in a number of ways. The most obvious is to take a PLR product, improve it a little bit and then try to sell it as your own product. Creating your own product from scratch is time consuming, or will be expensive if you pay a freelancer to do the work for you. A good PLR product can save you a lot of both time and money. It may just need a few minor modifications and you have a product you can sell. You may sell to the public or to other Internet marketers.

PLR articles can be used as content. If you are going to set up a web site, you need content, often plenty of it. Writing quality content takes time but unfortunately PLR articles are seldom of high quality. Many web sites have a core of quality information and use PLR articles to increase the number of pages. This way you can quickly create a web site with plenty of information, including some quality content.

Of course, PLR products can be used in many other ways as well. Just make sure that you read the terms and conditions. In most cases, you are allowed to change the form of the product. For example, if you have the technical knowledge, you can quickly turn an article into a video using PowerPoint and Camtasia. If you lack the technical knowledge or the time, you can pay others to do the job for you.

Often the main problem with PLR products is to find quality products. Many PLR products are amazingly cheap, unfortunately, the quality is often amazingly poor as well. Another thing to be aware of, especially if you are planning to use PLR products as web content, is that some PLR packages are sold in huge numbers so you may have a lot of competitors with almost identical stuff. Some PLR products are limited to a certain amount of copies but many have no limitations and they can have been sold for years.

Needless to say, buying poor PLR products seldom saves you neither money nor time. The product may be completely useless unless it is more or less completely redone. Master Resale Right products have a more restricted license than PLR products but they are often of higher quality. It is well worth having a look at MRR packages, even if the price is higher because you often get what you pay for.

What Is PLR

PLR stands for private label rights and is often used in Internet marketing. PLR is a license where the author sells all or part of the intellectual property rights to their work. Purchasers of PLR products can typically change the product and claim authorship. But PLR products often have various limitations, always read the terms and conditions before purchasing any PLR product.

Another popular term often used is master resale rights. Master resale (or resell) rights allows you to sell to your customers both the product and the resell rights to that product. Note that you are not allowed to change the product or claim authorship, once again, always check the specific terms and conditions for each product.

Beware of the difference between master resale rights and resale rights. A product with resale right allows you to sell the product to your customers but not pass on the resell rights to your customers. This means that your customers can only use the product for their private use.

As can be seen, PLR products typically offer the buyer a lot of flexibility. It is often possible to even change the format of the product, a PDF document can for example be converted to a video or audio tutorial.

PLR products can be as simple as a set of articles or as complex as a complete marketing package with eBooks and audio recordings. As mentioned before, each PLR product has its specific terms and conditions, make sure that you read the limitations before you buy any PLR products. Many but far from all PLR products come with an unconditional license that basically allows the new owner to use and redo the product any way they like. Unconditional PLR may have only one limitation, you can’t turn around and resell it as PLR to others.

Typically, you can add your own name, add and delete sections, even sell it on to others with a price that you determine. It’s as if you’re the original author without all of the work of authoring. This can be a huge time saver. Be aware that you are often not allowed to give away PLR products for free.

Needless to say, the quality of PLR products vary a lot. A lot of PLR products are more or less worthless but you also have a lot of quality products. Unsurprisingly, good PLR products are often much more expensive than the cheapest PLR products. Deals that sound too good to be true are often useless. If you get 50 articles for $5, be prepared that virtually all articles are without any substance.

If you are going to use PLR products as web content, you may want to check how much it has already been used. If you can get a snippet of the text, google it (in quotes) to see how many times it’s been used on the net. This way you can get an idea of how many others have purchased the same package. Some PLR packages are limited to a specific number of copies while others have no such limits.

Some PLR sites are membership based, meaning the number of buyers is limited. Others have no membership. You might get a lot more content with a membership, but some of it may not be the niche you’re looking for. With a no-membership PLR site, you pick and choose what niche topics you’re going to buy so that you don’t end up with a lot of unused products.

All in all, high quality unconditional PLR products are money and time savers. For $50 to $200 you can get top quality, well designed content that you would otherwise spend many countless hours producing by yourself or paying through the nose for a freelancer to do something similar. But beware that there are plenty of low quality PLR products which are virtually worthless.
