So.....What's the skinny with PLR?

22 replies
I am not overly familiar with PLR products, yet everything I read and everyone I meet is telling me that offering PLR rights to a product is a goldmine!

I must be missing something....

What is the key to making money with PLR products? Obviously there is the ONE TIME sale of the product with resale rights. But where are the future earnings to be made?

Can I embed affiliate links and product links in the PLR product? What's to keep someone from changing them?

Where is the $$$ in PLR?

    Yes, you can embed your links in the product. But if you pass on PLR then the smart marketers will remove your links and put in their own. So you may only want to pass on Master Resell Rights if you don't want others to edit your links.

    You can also charge more for the PLR. You can sell your product and then offer PLR as an upsell. I know a lot of people include the rights but they can also be sold for more income. I have a PLR video course in my sig you may like.

    Well I would say that if you offer PLR you could get customers you may not have by just offering the product as is, basically you would attract the marketers looking for something quick and ready to call their own, and then like Mike said, you can charge more, and earn more...

      So if I am understanding correctly, the money with PLR is made onthe front end only. You sell the product to a marketer to use and then they do with it whatever they want?

      But....

      Master Resell Rights allow the marketer to resell but not edit the info...

      Which is better?

    With PLR, anything goes.

    You get the full license to do whatever you want.

    Want to put your name on it? You can.

    Embed affiliate links? Definitely.

    Use it as autoresponder content, articles, blog posts, or as a guide. It's entirely up to you. There are a ton of ways you can benefit from PLR.

    Just one caveat. Stay away from crap PLR. And if you happen to buy 1, don't ever use it or sell it.

      This is totally false, you need to read the license to see what you can do with it.

      I have a restricted license on all my PLR which doesn't allow you to use it as is, not give it away or sell it.

      Different people will give different terms, always read and abide by them.

      Generally this is true. But every PLR transaction has it's own licensing agreement. Make sure you check it out before you buy.

        The money in selling PLR (like any business) is in acquiring customers and turning them into repeat customers.

        Provide good materials at a good value and you're well on your way.

        I buy a lot of PLR material. There are some vendors whose follow up emails I'll open immediately to see what their newest offer is. There are 2 that I open immediately just to click the order link. Then there are others who sold me subpar PLR and effectively shot themselves in the foot.

    The one thing with PLR products is that you need something that is in demand and also unique in some sense. THEN it's a goldmine.

    Or use PLR packages to tempt the opt, break it up and use it as content for articles, rewrite it into a totally new product that you can sell (quicker than starting from scratch) and doesn't have to be passed on as PLR etc (it no longer is).

    I've seen lots of marketers use PLR products on the packend (ie. opt in for a free How to Use PLR report than the backend promotes a PLR membership site or a massive PLR collection they can buy and use themselves).

    I get confused with the MRR and RR : ) I think RR you can only sell (no changes to) but with MRR you can sell it with the RR (and possibly MRR rights) aswell.

      Say you have one high quality 100 page product in a popular niche.

      You then make 10 plr reports out of this 100 page product.

      But you don't need to tell anyone that this material was taken out of your 100 page product.

      Alter titles & text a bit.

      Now you still have your own 100 page product that you can keep on selling, but you also have 10 high quality plr reports to sell.

        Hi,

        Is this your own work or are you given away PLR products that you have obtained the same way. The reason i am asking is all the info you state i think i already have it; as it is a product that i once wrote up and sold as a PLR. If it is original and yours then i will be happy to download it.
        Thanks

          doctfeelgod: I probably should have said "rewrite, change and rearrange it a bit more than just a bit".

          But if a customer should ask you a question like that, you could say something along the lines of:

          "This is 100% my own work. Since this is a topic I'm highly knowledgeable about, I have previously sold some short reports with plr rights on this topic. You might have read or purchased some of these? But no worries, should you after purchase of my product ____ find out that you don't need it, I will refund you promptly, no questions asked."

            Let me start with using PLR, although it's not really what you asked about, and then move to selling. If you buy PLR, then it is kind of like having a halfway step between full outsourcing and doing it all yourself.

            You can pay an article writer X to give you 20 unique articles - although they are likely to be rehashes of what's already on the web as well, unless you specify otherwise or pay more.

            You pay a PLR seller X-Y to be one of Z number of people to get rights to a set of 20 articles. Now you need to rewrite them to be unique, make sure they have the keywords in them you like, potentially combine 10 into a short report. This takes you N hours.

            You don't pay anyone any money but take the time to research a topic, decide what sub-topics would make good articles, and write them. This takes you N+M hours.

            Selling PLR you make money because you paid that article writer X and now you're the one selling Z copies of the articles and you make Z*(X-Y)-X. Or, more simply, if you charge 0.5*X and sell only 4 sets, then you've just doubled your money, not including any promotional fees. And most limited PLR will still release 20 sets, and many PLR properties are released more widely.

            Yes, this is a one time deal. You're not putting affiliate links in them.

            BUT if you are able to direct good writers or do good writing yourself, you can get repeat customers. People tend to stick with PLR sources that are useful to them because it can be a pain in the behind to find stuff that doesn't take a ridiculous amount of work to rewrite or to find stuff in specific niches (sometimes).

            And since you now have repeat customers on your list you can now sell them other stuff that would be helpful for the business that they are building or hoping to build by using the PLR articles you just sold them.

    play with your PLR. generate multiple forms of them and create your website content, use them as articles, use them as autoresponder series. bundle them and sell them together.. many more ways to make full use of PLR..

    PLR products are great, because alot of the time you can do whatever you want with them and there are so many ways in which you can use them. Always read the license before you buy as not all PLR products offer the same license

    Okay, so let me be clearer. I am asking from the side of a CREATOR, not a BUYER.

    I have a low-cost and a high-cost product. If I sell my low-cost product to other marketers as a PLR product is there a way for me to advertise my high-end product in the PLR? Or will marketers take out any information and or links to the high-end product as well?

    Am I right to assume that cash will be created from only two places:

    1) Sale of the PLR Product
    2) Sale of other PLR products to the buyers

    Is that pretty mkuch what I'm hearing people say?

    Also, is there a place I can create a custom PLR license?

      You can just get a few different PLR licenses and use them to outline what you want.

      They aren't typically "long"

      Here is one I read today:

      "All material for personal use only, you do not have any resell give away rights."


      Pretty simple.

      Here is a longer sample:

      [YES] Can be given away
      [YES] Can be packaged
      [YES] Can be offered as a bonus
      [YES] Can be edited completely and your name put on it
      [YES] Can be added to paid membership sites
      [YES] Can be offered through auction sites
      [YES] Can sell Resale Rights
      [YES] Can sell Master Resale Rights
      [YES] Can sell Private Label Rights


      If you are a creator of plr, then you decide how much of it you are making available to the public (ie how many copies) and if it is a low number it can drive the price up depending on what it is.

      Or, you can offer it up over and over for less.

      You could state in your PLR licence that the licence MUST follow the product if people resell the PLR rights. In this licence you could advertise your high-end product.

    Sorry for bringing up an old thread.

    Would it be acceptable to offer free PLR rights but restrict the ability for them to edit the document?

    Or would it not be PLR at that point?

    I think the point of PLR is the ability to edit the text. I buy and use PLR for niches I do not have the time to research myself. I always re-write the text before I publish it.

    I think what you might want to do is offer resale rights (or give away rights?) but NOT PLR rights. I assume you would do this because you have links or a product for sale in the document. Then you would just send out the PDF and not a word doc.

    There are so many different ways to license PLR and Resale Rights it can be really confusing but I guess if you are the owner of the document you can make any stipulations you want.
