Know Let's Walk Thru Exactly How to Make Money With PLR By Breaking Down The 5 Ways to Turn Your PLR Articles Into Money Content
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.
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 smooth 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.
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.
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.
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" and it keeps visitors on your site longer and increases your chances of making a sale.
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.
How Do You Use PLR Content?
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the missing piece of the puzzle!
And here is where you are going to discover the most important skills you must have to make money with PLR.
The thing is there are thousands of PLR buyers who purchase PLR, set it all up and hope to make sales and profit .. but nothing happens.
When you're about to purchase a "Biz-In-A-Box" PLR product, the sales page will tell you that all you need to do is ... "Sell the product as your own and keep 100% of the profits."
That sounds great and you've done it all but no one is buying your products.
So, what's missing?
The answer is traffic!
Most PLR buyers lack the ability to generate their own traffic online.
Skill #1 - Drive traffic to your offers.
For you to succeed and make money with PLR, you need to know how to drive traffic to your PLR offers. This is a skill you MUST have. Without it, your ability to make sales, etc. will be seriously hampered.
If you only remember one thing from this article, let it be this ñ you must learn traffic generation. It's a skill that's DIFFERENT from using PLR.

Trade your email to get free case study and checklist:
Being able to use PLR is excellent, but no matter how much rebranding, personalizing and repurposing you do, if no one is seeing your content and offers, you'll not build an audience and you'll not make sales.
You need to generate traffic to get sales. It's that important.
Skill #2 - Build a list.
Most standard "Biz-in-a-Box" type of PLR packages, include an opt in page with an accompanying PLR report.
These components are for list building.
The idea is to set up an opt in page and give away the report as a gift in exchange for the visitorss email address.
Setting this up is relatively easy, but you can only collect visitors email addresses and build your list if people are actually visiting your opt in page.
You need traffic to your opt in page.
Skill #3 - How to effectively use the different PLR components.
The same applies to almost all other components in your PLR bundles. If your PLR pack has a sales page and an eBook to sell, you need traffic to the sales page.
If you have PLR articles to post on your blog, you need traffic to your blog.
If you have components such as PLR videos, tweets, pins, etc. all these are meant to be used for traffic generation. Are you using them?
Are you giving traffic generation the importance it requiresÖ or are you just buying more and more PLR thinking that's the answer?
Skill #4 - How to increase your sales.
Making money online to a large extent is a numbers game. The more products you have for sale, the more sales you'll make.
The more blog posts you have, the higher your chances of ranking for keywords and getting visitors.
The more traffic you get to your web properties, the faster you'll build a list and make sales .. more, more, more.
That's your goal.
Skill #5 - Focus on just one method at the start.
Here's where so many beginners go wrong. They scatter their efforts over many different traffic generation methods and none yield any results worth mentioning.
After buying a PLR product, your first step will be to set it all up. The content needs to be posted on your blog, the sales pages need to be ready to accept orders and your funnel needs to be a well-oiled machine.
Once that's all done, the tech issues are settled. Of course, you'll still need to add content to your blog or other web properties at intervals, but this is of secondary importance.
Your main focus now should be on traffic generation and you need to pick one traffic method and fully focus on it.
It could be Pinterest marketing or video marketing or SEO or one of the several effective methods out there, but you need to choose one and master it.
Get courses and training on the traffic method you choose and apply the information given.
It could be paid traffic or free traffic. It doesn't matter.
What matters is that you focus solely on that method until you see visitors arriving to your site and/or other web properties. Then you can track conversions and try to improve on them.
Setting up your PLR is only half the battle, the other more important half of the battle is traffic generation.
Yes, you'll need to spend time learning it, and there will be a learning curve.
It will take time, especially if you're using search engine optimization, often referred to as "free traffic" but remember SEO takes your time which is valuable.
If you're using paid ads, it's inevitable to lose some money initially as you learn the ropes.
However, traffic generation is the most important skill you must develop. Spend at least 70% of your time learning this skill and getting good at it. Once you know traffic, your sales will skyrocket.
You'll see opportunities with PLR that you never saw before, and you'll truly enjoy generating an income online.
Traffic is the lifeblood of your online business
Do You Need to Rewrite Your PLR Content?
The answer is "it depends."
This is one of those questions where you'll need to ask several other questions before finding an answer to the original question.
Most people buy PLR because they want to save time and effort. Writing can be tiring and time-consuming. It's also an activity that countless web site owners and bloggers dislike.
So, they turn to PLR to get "done for you" content that meets their needs. Telling these buyers that they may need to rewrite their PLR, can leave a sour taste in their mouths.
The tricky part is that you do not always need to rewrite your PLR content, but there will be times when you have to.
It all depends on what you're trying to achieve with your content.
Here are some questions you need to ask yourself first.
Are you trying to rank in Google?
If you're trying to rank in the search engine results for specific keywords, then yes, you must rewrite at least 55% of your article so that Google views it as unique.
You do not want to appear like any other PLR buyer who just copied and pasted 100% of the content.
Search engine optimization will also require you to add your targeted keyword in a few choice spots in your content.
You'll need to sprinkle LSI keywords throughout the content and so on. This requires rewriting. There's no way out here.
What's your goal?
If your goal of buying PLR is to use it as a springboard to create non-fiction books to sell on the Kindle Publishing marketplace, you'll need to rewrite the content because Amazon does not allow PLR to be published as Kindle books.
If you wish to use your PLR content as guest posts, you'll need to rewrite the content until it's unique. Most authority blogs prefer unique guest posts.
On the other hand, if the PLR is just being used as blog posts to add some "meat" to your site and the only reason you're doing it is to give extra value to your audience, then you don't really need to rewrite the content.
The same applies to PLR being given away as reports or sold as eBooks. If the content is written well, you don't need to rewrite it. You're not trying to rank in the SERPS or use them as guest posts, etc.
Is the content too short?
Sometimes you may need longer articles for your blog posts. If the PLR article is 400 words long, you may need to expand on each point in the article. This will either require rewriting, or adding more content to the existing article.
You could combine two different PLR articles to create a longer article. But some rewriting may be required to blend both articles well so that they don't appear disjointed midway.
Does the content read well?
If the PLR content has some awkward sentences or you feel the sentence structure has room for improvement, you may need to rewrite the content.
Even the best PLR sellers are usually on a tight schedule and creating content to meet a launch deadline. This speed of content creation doesn't leave them much room to polish every article to perfection.But you'll need to because you are using the content. Always strive to make good content even better, even if it means rewriting the occasional odd sentence or two.
Is the content based on solid research?
Always fact check your PLR content to ensure you're not giving out wrong information. The term "fake news" is all over the media these days. You don't want to be a part of the problem.
If your PLR content doesn't have any solid facts, you could always rewrite some of the content to add in these facts. You may provide references, if you wish.
Are there spelling and/or grammatical errors?
Of course, spelling and grammar errors must be fixed. Rewriting here is crucial, but it's only for the minor errors.
Can the content be monetized?
If you can promote affiliate products or link to your own products for sale, you should rewrite the content so it's slightly slanted to perk the reader's curiosity. They'll then click on the links in the blog post and your chances of making a sale or commission will be much higher.
Is it possible to link to older blog posts?
Internal linking on a blog is crucial for search engine optimization. No post should exist in isolation.
If you can't find a way to link your PLR article to other posts within your blog, you should rewrite some of the content or add new content to enable you to link to other posts within your blog.
Alternatively, you may choose to go to your older posts and see if there's a way to link from them to your newer post. If you can do this, you may not need to do any rewriting.
At the end of the day, rewriting should be done with a purpose. It should either be used to rank your site favorably in the search engines, or increase your sales or make the content read better and appear more credible.

Ask yourself the questions above before rewriting your PLR.
How Do I Rebrand My PLR and make it Unique?
Rebranding your PLR content is of paramount importance if you wish to set yourself apart from all the PLR buyers who own the same content as you.
In fact, rebranding is not an option.
It's a necessity if you truly wish to succeed with your content marketing.
That said, there are several hurdles that beginners will face when trying to rebrand their PLR. The good news is that none of these difficulties are even remotely as intimidating as they appear to be.
There's nothing you cannot master in this business without some learning and practice.
Now let's see what difficulties most beginners face.
These technical issues can be solved by educating yourself. If you're setting up your "Biz-In-A-Box" PLR, you'll need to know how to upload the files to your hosting and so on.
There are many tutorials on YouTube that cover just about everything you need to know from pointing your domains to your hosting nameservers, to uploading files to your hosting account.
All you'll need to do is follow along to these tutorials and you'll know exactly what to do.
When rebranding your PLR, you'll need to create a new ecover and sales page graphics. These are the key changes you must make.
If you can design them yourself, that would be great. If not, you'll have to hire a freelancer on Fiverr or just Google search for "cheap minisite design" and hire one of these sites to rebrand your image.
The most important point to note here ñ which will make rebranding a breeze ñ is that your new graphics must have the same dimensions as the ones that came in your PLR bundle.
Since the sizes are the same, they'll fit in perfectly with the sales page and so on. The next step will be to give your new graphics the SAME file names as the ones that came with your PLR bundle.
The files should be in the same format too. For example, if the graphics in your PLR bundle were in PNG format, the new rebranded images should be in PNG format too.
Now all you need to do is copy and paste the new graphics into the folder of your PLR bundle. Let the new files overwrite the old files.
This will immediately create a brand new look for your sales page, opt in reports, etc. which are pulling in the old images with the filenames in the HTML code.
But now, since the file names are the same but the images are different, the whole sales page will look different. Itís really as easy as that.
Now all you need to do is upload the files to your hosting, after youíve added your buy buttons, etc. to the sales page.
No real plan
Another common difficulty that PLR buyers face is that they have no plan.
They've bought the PLR and don't know what to do with it. There's no point in rebranding your content if you have no idea how you're going to use it.
This is why you need to form a plan first ñ and stick to it. If you've decided to create a site on "back pain", get content related to your niche.
If you bought weight loss PLR, it would fit in with your plan (since losing weight will alleviate stress on your back). If you bought yoga PLR, that would help too. So would stress relief PLR.
All of these topics can be slanted to the back pain niches and you could easily rebrand these content pieces.
However, if you suddenly bought a PLR bundle on woodworking, what would you do now? It doesn't gel with your back pain niche and is a project all on its own.
You now have 2 projects on your hands. Like Confucius said, "The man who chases two rabbits, catches neither."
Formulate a plan and try not to deviate from it no matter how good a PLR deal you may come across. If it's not in your purview, you don't need it. You can always get it later on.
A lack of ideas
Sometimes a dearth of ideas can curb your enthusiasm. You may struggle to come up with new titles to rebrand your PLR. Or you may not have any idea on what new design to create for your graphics.
As for coming up with new product names, it's easy.
Just get on Amazon and look at the bestselling books in your niche. Make a list of about 50 titles or so and mix and match them to create your own.
You'll get tons of ideas when you use the correct muse. Titles cannot be copyrighted so you could actually use the exact same title as another book. Just be careful not to use trademarked names.
For graphic design, you can always hire someone to do it for you, if you lack ideas or skill.
Not knowing which modules to rebrand
The most important part of rebranding your PLR content will be to get new graphics done. In fact, if that's the only module you rebrand, it will be good enough.
There's no need to change every piece of content. All you need is a new look for your product. The writing can stay the same.
There's no denying that hiring freelancers to create new graphics for you may cost anywhere from $50 to $100.
If you're on a tight budget, this may be a difficulty.
The best advice here is to put your rebranding on hold and save up until you have enough to get the job done. You could set aside money you earn at your day job or you could freelance online to make extra money to fund your online business.
Rebranding your PLR is not rocket science.
As long as you find a way to give the product a new name and look, you'd have succeeded. It's really as simple as that.
Get started on it today.
How To Rebrand Your 'Biz in a Box' PLR
Purchasing a "Biz-In-A-Box" PLR bundle can be a double-edged sword.
On the one hand, you receive many different components and quite a bit of written content that you can use and sell as your own.
On the other hand, you'll need to set it all up and also rebrand the PLR so that it looks nothing like the original PLR you purchased.
There are a few steps involved and they're listed below. Take your time to understand each step before moving on to the next one.
Step #1 - Give the product a new name and buy a domain for it.
The name you give your product must be catchy and interesting. You can get an idea by looking at the titles of similar books on the Amazon marketplace. Find the books that sell well and model your title after them.
Step #2 - Point the domain to your hosting nameservers.
Step #3 - Hire a graphic designer on Fiverr or another freelance site.
Have them create a new ecover for your product, and also the images which will be used on your sales page.
Remember to tell the designer to keep the image dimensions, the file name and file formats the same as whatís in the original PLR bundle
Step #4 - Once you get back all the images, substitute them for the ones provided in the PLR package.
Once the old files are overwritten by the new ones, you'll have a product that looks totally different from the original PLR.
Step #5: Rewrite the headline that came with your PLR sales copy.
While the sales copy can stay the same, rewriting the headline is important.
It's the most visible part of the sales copy and by changing it, you'll rebrand your sales page just a bit more to differentiate your product from the original.
Step #6 - Add a buy button to the sales page.
Preferably using a different digital platform from the one where you purchased your PLR. Link your sales funnel and automate the download page delivery and so on.
Step #7 - Upload the sales page, download page, and other required pages to your hosting account.
Step $8 - Set up the opt in page provided with your PLR,
And then link it to your autoresponder to deliver the report when people sign up. (Your opt in report should have been rebranded too.)
Step #9 - Focus on traffic generation to the opt in page to build your list.
Have an email sequence in place to build a relationship with your subscribers.
Step #10 - Email your list and send them to the sales page you've set up.
Start making sales!
While there are 10 steps involved and they seem a little technical, the process itself is relatively straightforward. As long as you get new graphics done and rewrite the sales page headline, your product will look brand new and unique.
Any tech hiccups can be solved by searching for tutorials on YouTube. It's all simple stuff once you follow along to the videos.
Most potential buyers do not scrutinize sales copy. They just read the headline, look at the images and see if the sales copy addresses their pain points. It's all a superficial process.
As long as your product looks totally different from the original PLR, most potential buyers will never know that you used PLR content to create the product.
Ultimately, what matters is that the content you're selling is good and helps the customer. If you can do that, you've done your part and deserve the sale.
You can always print out this list and keep it close to you for reference when setting up your virtual PLR box of content.
How can I make money with resell rights products?
Before you go let's answer this final question that I'm sure is on your mind.
Is there any use for Resell Rights and Master Resell Rights PLR products, and can I really make any money with them?
You may be wondering what's the point of resell rights (RR) and master resell rights (MRR) products.
After all, most do not come with the editable source files. So, you have very little flexibility with the products.
It's almost like having a pointless superpower like being able to read your own mind or instant hair loss.
But all levity aside, there are uses for resell rights products. If you've joined a PLR membership site like IDPLR or Resell Rights Weekly, you'll have access to thousands of resell and master resell rights products.
So, what can you do with them?
If you're in the "make money online" space, you'd have seen many affiliates piling on bonuses to promote the latest launches software or info products. Very often, these bonuses are actually resell rights products that have been collated and compiled.
Of course, the products were taken from the large PLR membership sites such as the ones mentioned above.
The goal here is to overwhelm the potential buyer with the sheer number of bonuses they're getting.
It's common to see affiliates saying how their bonuses have a "real world value of $80,344.75" but they're getting it all for free if they'll only purchase the $12.95 eBook the marketer is promoting.
Most of it is hype.
There is no such thing as "real-world value" for resell rights products.
You can't take these intangible products to the bank and cash them out for real money. The bank teller will probably tell you where you can put your resell rights bonus.
But the point is this, they can be used as bonuses for affiliate promotions. Just don't go overboard with the hype and number of products in the bonus.
Add a couple of relevant products together and create a quick bonus. It just might help you get the sale.
Idea generation and research
Resell rights products are still content. If you're in a niche and you need ideas for content, all you need to do is read through several resell rights eBooks in your niche.
You'll definitely discover points to write about and expound on. Very often, these products have research that's done for you.
You just need to compile the points and write your own articles. It will save you a lot of time.
Product bonuses are different from affiliate bonuses. Don't get confused here.
If you're selling your own info product, you can always add 3 or 4 bonuses to your product and list them at the bottom of the sales page. Of course, these bonuses will be resell rights products.
It's so easy to add more value just by adding a couple of these to your sales page.
For example, if you're selling a book on getting six pack abs, you could add 3 bonuses which could be a clean eating guide, stress relief book and a muscle building report.
It's extremely easy to find these types of products in most PLR memberships.
You may even notice that several digital products sold on ClickBank.com use this technique to make their offer look more attractive by padding on more value.
Running a membership site? You can add a resell rights eBook or software every now and then to your deliverables.
Mixing up unique content with resell rights products will help alleviate the stress of content production. As long as the RR product is good, you'll not get complaints.
Here's a shocker, people actually make sales with resell and master resell rights products.
This can be done in 2 ways. You could bundle up several RR products in one niche and sell them as a package.
Or you could set up the sales page for any particular resell rights product and sell the product as it is. As long as you can drive traffic to the sales page, sooner or later someone will buy it.
Most RR and MRR packages include the sales pages for you to sell the product. The only limitation is that you can't rebrand the product because the editable source files are not included.
However, if you just want to set up a quick product to get sales from your list or through a YouTube video, these products will work.
Do not discount the value of these products just because of their limitations. Use your imagination and be a PLR MacGyver.
You'll be surprised to discover that you can actually use these RR/MRR products to generate an income online.
Wrapping It Up .. In Conclusion
There you have it just about everything you need to know to make money with PLR.
The rest comes when you take action.
