Is Selling PLR To An Info Product Actually Worthwhile?

41 replies
So I have now established that selling PLR information products is worthwhile provided that you provide quality graphics and sales letter and a complete sales funnel.

But once I do that I'm not at all clear on the best way to market and promote these products would be?

I could run a WSO, of course, but I can't imagine that picking up many sales. I don't have a list to promote to either. The only other way I can think to promote my product would be with paid traffic.

What am I am I missing?

    Hi Zachary,

    If you're on your quest to build a real online business don't waste your time with PLR products because most of the are not worth a single penny. I don't say that you can't turn a profit with PLR but if you care about your customers and your own reputation forget about selling PLR completely.

      I have to disagree completely with this.

      Selling PLR products is a real online business, and a massively lucrative one at that.

      I know of several vendors who produce top quality PLR products and they sell thousands of copies with every launch.

      PLR is huge.

      If you are going to do it right, though, you need to take the PLR that you buy and enhance it with you own information and make it even better. You completely rebrand the product and then sell it.

      I've been selling PLR for almost 8 years, and I have a large buyers list with thousands of satisfied repeat customers.

      It's a great idea to sell a limited number of licenses to your product. I say go for it.

        So this answers your question, buddy. Selling PLR products IS worthwhile!

    Selling your own product with PLR rights is not a bad idea.

    But as usual, the question is do you have a list to promote it to? If not, then just launching as a wso is probably not going to fetch you much cash.

    One idea is to pitch it in the jv section. Let people know you have a done-for-you product ready to go, and offer it as a unique bonus or oto for someone else to use in their launch who already has a list. Just make sure they have a proven track record of selling to their list. Then you could get a share of their profits.

              I'm really intrigued now.

              How is it more anonymous??

    It all depends, if people also want to sell what you are selling then yes it is worthwhile. Have you checked to see if there is any PLR being sold in that niche. That is one of the first indicators to see if something will sell

    I think people are confusing what he is asking.

    He wants to sell his info product to people who will resell it.

    My answer is yes, do it.

    I'm assuming you are getting way more than your normal product price for the deal?

    If so jump on it.

    The truth is if someone likes your information and course. There's nothing stopping them from getting their hands on your product, paying someone to rewrite it and repackage the information as their own product.

    So any opportunity you get for someone to buy the PLR to your product, take it up. In fact it would be better if you worked out a deal where you got a % of the profits instead of them paying you a flat fee.

    1. Are there people making info products in this niche?
    2. How can you get in front of them?

    If you can solve those two, then you're golden.

  • I think you guys are misunderstanding what I'm asking.

    I'm not talking about purchasing PLR and then selling the product as your own.

    What I'm talking about is developing my own information products and then selling private label rights to them. I would be the originator of the product, not the reseller.

    I hope that clears things up

    There is money in selling these. Many people are looking for the easy path and buying someone else's product to sell is easier than creating their own.

    Let us know what you decide and how it goes.

      I think I already decided

      I definitely want to sell private label rights to what I have. I think I was just mainly trying to figure out the best to go about doing this and if this was a viable business model going forward

      From everything I've heard so far, creating products and selling PLR to them does sound like a good idea

    I was going to read through all the previous comments to see if anyone has already said what I wanted to say but that just seemed tedious and I thought I would give my $2 (I think it's better than 2 cents so raised the price).

    Yes man chuck a PLR label on it and sell that bad boy. The truth is most people that buy it will do nothing with it and that is not your fault you held up your end of the bargain by providing them a quality product that they can sell as there own (I hope the product is quality)

    Some will buy it and add it to there membership site like resell rights weekly did to mine.

    You are not limited to the amount of idea's you will have and the amount of products you can create. Just go out there give it a go, if it sells fantastic if it bombs that sucks but unlike most of the people on this forum you are out there making sh*t happen.

    Battle on my brother and go make that green stuff..

    My $2's done lol

    • Jouvan,

      Thanks for putting your $2 in. I freaking love that. I never really understood where that term even came from.

      Im definitely going to offer some plr licenses and see what happens. I think it could be a great way to generate some cash that i can then invest in bitcoin :-)

        You may actually find a PLR person who would buy rights to your product and they sell PLR through their channels.
        This. In terms of the PLR thing, seems to me the market is getting pretty sophisticated with their offerings, where extensive sales support has become standard, including graphics, landing pages, TOS pages etc.. in short a full funnel.

        I looked at it late last year, and while I think it's a cool business model, I also think it's one that's a little deceptive in it's ease of entry.

        But hey, gotta start somewhere, right? And from what I've seen, once the supporting funnel has been created, it's pretty easy to rebadge to the next PLR product you release.
        {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[10986420].message }}
        • John,

          Based on what I've seen, I would definitely agree that PLR products have become very sophisticated. But at the same time, as you pointed out, you can always rebadge the sales funnel on your next PLR product.

          The point of this post was to gather more information about the best way to go about selling PLR info products.

          As of right now I still haven't got many answers on the best way to sell a PLR product...

    If I were you, I would definitely take the chance with selling your fresh product as plr. If you have faith in what you created, there should be no reason it should not sell (with or without plr).

    One way to make it a little better is to convert the product into audios and/or videos. This helps to give it a little more perceived value. Also, if you give it a little more stuff (bonus pdf's or checklists, graphics, etc.) you could turn this into a potential business in a box!

    Pretty much, the sky is your limit once you have high-quality original content. You can almost do anything with it.

    Lastly, you probably already know this but find the plr sellers/users (depending on your license) once you create your package. IMO, I have not seen many plr sellers with affiliates at least right away. If you can repeat this trend a couple of times you could build up an affiliate list and make selling easier (i.e. Tony Mariott, ECGP) but finding those sellers (if you want to resell) or the end users (for personal usage) may be a little work.

    The only reason I figure affiliates would be the hardest to get/find is 'cause some of them don't jump on board until they see 100% commission. I could be very wrong though.

    I wish you the best of luck. I'm also kinda curious about your results should you do this.

      Thanks for the response.

      I would really prefer not to sell PLR, however, I'm basically trying to raise some funds quickly and this seems like the best way to accomplish that.

      What would be the best PLR license to use? And where could I get one?

    Sure - if your content is in demand, selling PLR can work.

    Have you sold the product yet on your own to know how it sells?

    PLR rights to an infoproduct can be a lot more appealing today if you develop a turnkey offering (sales page, product + bonuses) or group of products among the same theme.

    A single product without these other elements can be challenging from PLR point of view.

    Just make sure that you word you PLR license correctly, and it's a great idea.

    Lots of others already know the information that's in your product anyway.

    Use it to raise quick cash, profit more from the upsells/OTO's, and focus on creating your next info product ;-)

    Like others said, it is worthwhile if you know how? and where to sell.

    By just re-brand everything and sell it, I don't think will cut it. Because too many crappy garbage PLR out there already and everyone will do the same by re-brand as their own PLR.

    Good luck of your selling.

    You have to wonder if people ever take the time to actually read the previous posts

    As I mentioned earlier, one of the best ways to promote is through other PLR sellers. Again, you can sometimes meet them through Facebook groups that are specifically for people who sell PLR. Here on this forum is another way.

    They'll often get requests for topics they don't have so they'll refer potential buyers to other sellers.

    PLUS, many of them have large lists. If you can get them to promote your product as an affiliate on their list it can be a huge jumpstart for your business.

    But don't let your first contact with them be -- Please promote my product.

    After you create your product, you can post it for sale on Warrior Plus and you'll get a few sales just from people searching for plr there, plus you may pick up a good affiliate or two that will promote the product for you. I'm not saying you will get a ton of sales, but a few at the least by simply listing it there.

    But that's assuming you make a product that is good, and your sales page and copy are decent.

      Totally agreed with Joan, I think PLR is the shortcut for creating your own products fast and list them on Warrior plus and JVZoo TO make some good sales.
