    I don't think so. If you don't have any PLR or resale rights license, you can't sell. Thanks :-)

    hahaha... welcome to the club

    you cannot sell products as is, but you can use them as inspiration to develop your own products

    examples:
    1. combine and rewrite a couple of products into a new single product
    2. take a pdf and turn it into a video product and add your own spin
    3. find the holes or gaps in a product and improve upon it during the rewrite
    4. when making your new product do a pdf, video, audio version for upsells/downsells
    5. pick a product and do a case study of the results

    hope this helps.

    good luck!

    Likely no. You would need to either contact the sellers or review the TOS.

      not resell as is

      there are plenty of products that left something out

      make it whole

      rewrite it using your own unique spin

      give it a new title

      and you've got a brand new product

      you're stealing anybody else's intellectual property

      you're using these course that you've purchased as inspiration

      do not copy, be inspired

      I believe Chris is correct, reselling any product as is would have had to be part of the original purchase terms. sometimes, though, it's true so perhaps review what you've purchased to see if reselling is allowed. Perhaps you've forgotten? Good luck!

    If you have bought anything with PLR you could rewrite them as your own. That is really the only way to use someone's work as yours.

    there is very little in internet marketing that is completely new and innovative. most of what is being sold out there is just rehashed versions of existing products. first, I would say to implement and take action on something that you bought. you can create a case study on one of the topics, and rework the idea to be your own. if everything you bought totally sucked, cut your losses and move on to something else.

    pull out your phone and shoot a video at a thrift store about retail arbitrage. show yourself looking at a few items that have a higher resale value that what it costs you to buy. now go home and list those items on ebay or amazon. record your screen with a free recording software. edit the video in a free editing software. finish the video series with a final thoughts video, showing the final sales price, and discuss what you learned.

    bam. you have just created a "case study" or "over the shoulder" step by step hand holding a to z video on how to make money in your spare time with a low investment. It doesnt cost anything to set up social media sites around the videos, and build a youtube channel. link all the socials to each other, and to the youtube videos. you can upload all of your videos to youtube with a private setting. provide the links after payment.

    put your ad up on facebook marketplace, and cross post it to all of your local facebook buy sell trade groups, yard sale groups, etc. put it on craigslist. anywhere you can advertise it for free. post replies to peoples questions on instagram, and facebook groups relevant to your videos. People will read your replies and look at your pages.

    It takes time to do the vids and posting, but you can easily make a couple hundred in a week, and if you keep getting more traffic, that will keep going up. prepare your follow up product and do it all over again.

      It was a bout a year in when I started noticing the trends. New stuff does come up from time to time (or at least good twists on past stuff)

    I'd maybe reconsider your sales patter if you do decide to sell 😏

    I would check with the vendor when you bought it.....Also, check in the the Terms of Service and see what the rules are. Most people don't read them so no one really knows what they can or can't do with the products. When you buy PLR it does tell you what you can and cannot do with the product.

    Most of the products are copyrighted - did you purchase resell rights? Probably not. Most of the products likely have a clear statement about reselling or a statement about copyright.

    The advice above to "rewrite" such products is horrible advice.

    This is not the first thread recently by someone who bought multiple items over months or a year...and now want the money back to spend elsewhere.
    Sometimes the only answer to a question is "no, you don't have the right to do that unless you have permission from the seller".

    I hope others will think about this thread. There is no point in buying multiple "IM products" if you aren't going to utilize them. If you are ONLY spending money - you are a buyer, not an internet marketer.

    Why not USE the information/training/advice in the products you purchased to EARN some money?

      That sums it up perfectly...it's too easy to become a buyer when all of the products are available to help you make money...usually by becoming a seller and developing your own authority instead of being part of someone else's

      One of my favorite ways around this is you'll see some "clever people" who have a "business partner."

      So.......................

      They essentially go in 50/50 on a product or service and both have full access to it.

      I use the term "favorite" very tongue and cheek....

      It is essentially theft...

      That's what I've been doing, you think all that glimmers is gold? I've failed somehow, by it's not by not taking action. I've invested my time + energy + money in completely wrong directions.

      After staying up one night spamming twitter with amazon links I made like 4 cents, but since it is not something you can build a business doing I ditched it.

      I'm considering the harsh reality that I've listened to people who sells methods that don't work in real life, but they do know how to deal e-smack to infojunkies like myself. Usually there's some vital piece of information missing in the instructions.

    Some of the Knowledge that is in most of the products is not proprietary or copyrighted so, as some suggested here you can develop your own product inspired on them. Of course you need heavy rewriting and redesign of Landing Pages, VSL, etc.

    Apparently they did not work for you. So do you feel the need to take advantage of people because you are broke

      You're totally misinterpreting what I'm saying.I'm saying I have a lot of information products, and I would like to sell them. They're probably completely worthless since I haven't made any money with them despite lots of effort. But maybe someone would find interest in buying them for some reason.

      No, I am not interested in becoming a guru, I have higher moral standards than that. I hate it when I get pitched with vague arguments about making money online, and when I end up buying the product it's basically a guide saying how I can become a guru like the guy that just sold me the infoproduct and how I sell the same information to some other smuck looking for a get rich quick scheme. I have no interest in becoming one of those guys. Those guys doing "launches" and they teach you how you make big money as an affiliate promoting all of those guru launches, 99.9% of those guys doing launch promotion have no clue if the product they're selling is worth any money at all they just take a quick look at the sales pitch and calculate if it will make them a quick buck or not. Not sustainable either, make a few sales here, until the campaign dies, then start over again...

      Some guru on FB I bought from told me I could have a "free gift" if I replied to his post. I replied. What did he give me? An hour long affiliate sales video for a product that cost $2000. I told him I was not satisfied with my free gift because I had to pay $2000 to get it.

      I said that if he gives his children gifts like that on Christmas they must be crying every year. He said he gave his kid a TV for Christmas and that I could use the "education" in the video that's free. Yeah right, I watch the home shopping network for entertainment value as well. I sent him an affiliate link for a TV on Amazon and said thanks, here's a gift from the bottom of my heart to you. Then he got angry because I sent an affiliate link and called it a gift! He said that he never asked me to buy something, that I came to him, and that I was wasting his time. Then he blocked me on facebook. Indirectly yes he did ask me to buy from him because he's all over the internet with his sales videos.
