Quick Question for those Who Purchase PLR?

by Hamish Jones 11 replies
Hi Guys,

I just had a quick question for those who use PLR article packs.

I was wondering if limiting distribution of a pack of articles to a distribution of 20 would make a difference in your decision to purchase compared with limiting to a distribution of 50?

I.E. When does distribution move from limited distribution to mass distribution?

      For some extra cash for myself, and to teach a couple of people who have approached me about making money online, I am going to start offering some PLR packs.

      Before I start offering them through my website, I just wanted to get a feeling from Warriors about how they view PLR and how wide a distribution is too wide.

      Ideally, it's about finding the right point to maximise profits without losing customers and having to sell your work for too low a value. I mean, you don't want to end up like at DP where you have packs of 200 (mainly useless anyway) articles selling for $5.

      I hope this clarifies what I was asking.

    Hi,

    For me, it's either unique - or not.

    So, to answer your question - it wouldn't make any difference to me if it was 20, 50 or 200.

      Fair enough, but would you prefer a PLR template that less people have, or that 100's of others have?

      The thing that sells the articles apart from the quality is the rights you put on them.

      There was a wso where the articles were good quality, and they said that only xx would be sold. That looked good, but the rights gave exclusive rights. Those articles have been given as bonuses left, right and centre, so the number who got them is far higher than the original quantity.

      BTW there was no confusion in what you were asking
      I had thought about rights. And I am glad that someone understands the Queen's english!

      Thank you for your input Mary.

      Obviously, you have to need the articles. But would you be prepared to pay a premium for something that only has a distribution of 30?

      Thanks Andy. I understand what you mean by unique, but have you ever considered PLR as a tool for research?

        I do use PLR for research, but I have some simple rules I follow for this stuff.

        1 - Why did the PLR get written?

        Usually people selling PLR just do a quick keyword search (sometimes they don't even do that) and then get 'something' created that is for that market and then sell it based on "people are searching for this, and now you have something to sell them"

        For me - that stuff is a waste of time.

        If someone did some market research, found what people in that market wanted, did some keyword research and got LSI terms, then looked around forums and groups to see what people were asking, then checked what competitors were saying about their products and where they were advertising, and then created a product they thought would address the needs of the market in a way that factored in how it could best be used - That would be more like what I would consider having "saved me the work of creating it myself".

        Unfortunately, most people selling PLR stuff are not making money marketing to people - except selling IMers PLR for whatever they create.

        So, again - I have no interest in buying any old thing that has been created by people rehashing existing information with no accounting for what the market wants or whether the product gives them it.

        Also, if even only 10 people are given the PLR, it only takes one other person to put it on ezinearticles and isnare and you might aswell rewrite it again to get proper results.

        Yes, there are ways to use PLR as search engine fodder in the hope that you can scrape the low hanging fruit before too many other versions of the same information become used, but only someone struggling to come up with desparate measures would be spending their time doing that instead of something more productive.

        Many people that buy PLR do it because they're unclear about what they're trying to achieve and they often jump from niche to niche based on what the PLR they get is about - most people here realise that this is a great plan for getting nowhere fast.

        With all that said - you can make money with PLR for sure, but it's not from doing the same things as everyone else, it's from building up your own business and basing the products on what is available with PLR to save time - not using the PLR as the reason to get into the market - that's backwards, like choosing a CB product and then going around wondering how to sell it.

      I have to agree with Andy as well, I'd have to rewrite it to make it unique no matter what the distribution, so it doesn't matter to me either.

      I've rewritten articles in less than 10 mins that were distributed to hundreds of people, and afterwards they were unique (as unique as they would be with a 20 person distribution).

        To be used correctly, PLR should have a serious rewrite, that makes the article unique to the user and avoids duplicate content problems.

        Some people do see an advantage of low volume issues of PLR products, but in the end they will have to be edited anyway, so it's no big deal.

    I'm with Andy on this:

    "It's either unique - or not"

    Unique articles go on my money sites, PLR articles get rewritten (if I feel up to it) or they get published on my various blogs/sites as they are.

    Poor quality is an issue with most PLR articles I've purchased... I might pay a bit more if I know they're well written so I can use them as they are on some of my better blogs/sites (I'm not a believer in the duplicate content penalty, or unnecessary work).
