I'm really not trying to sound dumb here. I just want to know what else you can do with PLR articles other than posting them to a blog.

I've seen a lot of ways to make money on here with PLR marketing in writing the articles and selling them, but how can the one getting the PLR articles make the money?

I've seen Zeus66 thread about building a blog empire and I've seen the pros and cons to it. So I just want to know what other options are out there for the PLR articles. I have quite a few of them and want to know what to do with them.

    Here are several ways you can use PLR articles to make money.

    2.Post them to article directories

    3.Use them to create Squidoo lenses

    4.Post them on your blog

    5.Post them as comments on other people's blogs (especially those that
    don't use rel="nofollow" in their links, or those that you think will
    drive a lot of traffic to your site)

    6.Use them to make posts in forums related to your niche

    7.Use them to fill up your auto-responder series, or as content for your newsletter

    8.Use them to compile or create reports or e-books that you can sell or give away, either as a standalone product or as a bonus with another product

    9.Use them to create a membership site

    10.Use them to create reports or e-books that you put inside the members area of your website (combine 8 and 9 above)

    11.Use them to create audio reports or podcasts - just read the articles aloud and edit the resulting audio

    12.Use them as idea joggers - to get ideas for topics you would like to write about, either in your blog or your web site

    13.Use them to start sites in niches that you know nothing or almost nothing about

    14.Use them for "bum marketing"

    15.Use them to create offline newsletters (that your customers get in their mailbox)

    Hope that gives you a few ideas. Enjoy!

      Closely related to Cris Stylez # 12 so I'm quoting for credit.

      Use them to learn about a topic. Scan them and see if it excites you. Typically people write PLR for topics that have a following vs just randomly picking a topic, so part of your research has been done for you.

      I also use them if I'm creating my own content - some would say it's rewriting, but I scan them for the high points, and then put together my own articles for example - it just works faster that way for me vs thinking how to rewrite each paragraph one at a time.

      Hope it helps!

    PLR articles help you to earn money by posting them in your site, but usually what I do is to add some paragraphs or rephrase the sentences so that somehow I have added my personal style of writing rather than merely copying it. Once you have done this, you can post this on different directories for backlink purposes so that you can drive traffic to your websites.

    These are just the two most common things I do with PLR articles to earn money.

    There's a lot you can do with PLR articles other than just post them as blog content. Cris pretty much covered it in his reply. I've used PLR for blog content, short reports, ebooks, ecourses, autosponders, membership sites, newsletters, etc.

    Think outside the box and you can get a lot of various use from PLR content. There are so many topics and niches out there, just rinse and repeat.

    PLR is great! Especially when you are starting out.
    Great responses here. Just treat PLR as content that you can package in any way you want and sell to your subscribers (If you have the right) or use to build a list for yourself.

    A lot has already been said here!

    I'll tell you how I personally use it. I will use it for ideas for articles for my niche blogs (in this case i usually rewrite it). I'll put different PLR articles together to create giveaway reports for my niche blogs and I will often use PLR for autoresponder messages without being rewritten (just slightly personalised).

    There really are so many ways, the lists here are a really good start. Just depends what kind of business you're in as to what use you'll get from them.

        Look at the most popular niches.
        Look at the bestsellers on Amazon.
        Look at the bestselling products on Clickbank.
        And take a look at what the other PLR writers are selling.

        In other words, go where the people are, because they are in need of content.

  • Use them as the basis for a new article of your own.

    The research has already been done for you. Read the PLR article, get a few ideas, then rewrite it from scratch, so you have something completely original.

      I thought I might have seen somewhere in the forum of a WP plugin that would bring in the PLR article for you and allowing you to add a posting above it and/or below it to change up the content a little. Sort of what Rhoda spoke of earlier.
