Are People Selling Your PLR Products For Pennies?

7 replies
When you provide resell rights to your customers you will eventually
sell or someone else will sell your products to someone that will try
and resell your products for pennies.

This is just an unfortunate part of online marketing that you can fix by
simply not providing any resell rights. While solving the problem of the
idiots that resell your creations for a buck, this may limit your short term
profits by pushing out the marketers that only buy for the resell rights.

This same problem exists for those of us that provide private label rights
with the product we create and sell.

However with plr the problem is much easier to solve.

When the marketer that purchases your products with resell rights comes across
the lowball idiot that is selling that same item way below the price you have
suggested it sells for - even when you have listed in your resell rights terms
or license - that marketer contacts you complaining that you do something about
it and have the seller remove their sale or raise the price.

While there are potential legal issues with you asking someone to sell your products
at a certain price - or else - you still want your new customer to be happy so you
reply that you are going to contact the injuring seller (idiot) and request they raise
the price and relate to them the license terms and the fact that the low price hurts
everyone and so on...

Now when this same issue occurs with private label rights products there are more
effective resolutions.

Someone I met online the other day made a comment on another site whose owner
just raised their Membership fee from $10 - $97 (it depended on who you were as
to how much your membership fee was) to $147. The site owners' reason for raising
the cost of Membership was to weed out the "tire-kickers" who have been reselling
the products for a buck or two. The products for the most part are private label
rights products.

This person - his name is Shane - made the comment on this other site reminding
them (us) that this is PLR content, and if you work it properly as most do
(or should do), then there is no competition, because the results would be a
unique product, right?

Don't concern yourself with what the wannabes are doing, just continue to
makeover your PLR as you should and you will command top dollar.

Truer words were never spoken. (IMHO)

The moral of this rant is that if you have PLR then use it or buy resell rights instead.
Thebeauty of PLR is that you have the ingredients for a unique product.

Should the originator of the plr product follow up on complaints of lowballers - yes!

Should those that are reporting the lowballers use the ingredients of the plr product
to create a totally unique product that which is no longer affected by the lowballer -
most assuredly YES!!

Please let me know your opinion on this hot topic. Am I right or wrong?

Sincerely,

    Hi Steve,

    As a purchaser of your PLR videos, I can certainly agree when it pertains to Non-Video products, but how do I apply it to videos.

    It's not simple to re-edit a video as a new product other than re-label it and give it a new cover. One could re-package it, but then again there is usually a limit to how many videos can be packaged together.

    With resell rights it is a much harder thing to deal with, which is why low cost resell rights usually end up as bonus material. My preference is PLR all the way.

      Hey there Rupps,

      You are correct that editing videos is not simple, but it is do-able.

      With the Camtasia Studio version 6.0.2 (and they have a free trial version)
      you can unlock the video from the audio and replace all the video (visual) segments with your own Power Point slides or screen captures and just sync them with the audio.

      One that I did recently was with the Twitter videos I did. I created brand new and totally different image panels and replaced the old with the new and just synced them with the audio. Same audio but brand new look.

      Was it easy? Yes, but it was time consuming and I had some idea as to what I was doing.

      Here are a few other ideas that I borrowed from a post I did on another thread here on the WF:

      These ideas depend on the specific rights you acquired with your
      plr videos...

      1. After you have unlocked the audio from the video, you can remove the video completely and have only the audio. Save as a MP3 file & you now have an Audio eBook.

      2. You can get screen-captures (print screen) of certain parts of the video and with Open-Office Writer you can add the images to a odt or doc file along with some text you added that you heard from the video and then export as a PDF and now you have a brand new eBook that you can add affiliate links or your own product links to and give away or sell.

      3. Combine ideas 1 & 2 for a more valuable product - or if selling one, add the other as an upsell.

      4. If the language of the video is not the primary language of your customer base, have the video transcribed and record yourself reading the transcriptions in your language. Unlock the audio from the video then sync your narration to the video.

      Maybe its me and I just have a hard time seeing it from the other points of view, but I look at private label rights products as merely ingredients to a yet unfinished product but until I have the product finished I can sell the flash version (rights permitting of course).

      Jerome, I hope this helps.. and some pretty good ideas are in the last video series I did titled Your PLR Makeover. Video 6b covers changing the look of the plr videos using Camtasia Studio version 6.0.2 - let me know if you did not get that series and I'll hook you up.

      Let me know - talk to you soon.

    In most countries (and, I believe, in some USA states) retail price maintenance is illegal.

    You might not like what I say - but I believe it.
    Build it, make money, then build some more
    Some old school smarts would help - and here's to Rob Toth for his help. Bloody good stuff, even the freebies!

    It actually depends on the product. Most marketers dont understand by undervaluing a product you are actually giving your business a cheap connotation.

    If you sell your products for pennies it might cost you in the end. You will market the same time and effort for a more expensive and worthy product

    Having an affiliate program is kind of like selling resell rights but with a fixed price.
    That might work well for people who think that their products might be resold for dirt cheap.

    I have just started selling plr products and I did wonder how I could keep track of whether those buying them are sticking to my terms.

    A lot of my products are templates (sales letters, squeezepages etc). I'm wondering just how many people will edit and modify as it's not something that everybody who buys is capable of doing.

    It is far easier to do a makeover on written content than on video and web design templates.

    I guess we all hope that our products are bought by quality buyers.
