Why Would You Buy PLR From A Membership Site?

Hey Guys,

I've been selling individual PLR packages for a while now, and they sell well...but now
I am considering creating an exclusive membership for limited PLR packages that I am creating.

My questions are:

1. Do you (would you) pay monthly membership fees for quality PLR?
2. If yes, what specific benefits/features makes it (or would make it) worth it to you?
- Niche specific membership (i.e; all relationship plr)?
- Minimum releases per month (i.e; knowing you get 10 packages per month)?
- Extras (i.e; tutorials, forums, support, etc.)?
- What else?

Even though I sell a lot of PLR, I also buy a lot for my own use. I have purchased tons of individual packs as well as joined several memberships in the past. In my experience, the memberships don't really follow a specific model, and I know there's TONS out there so I thought I'd ask what you guys thought and if you had any specifics to share that would make a PLR membership a no-brainer for you to join.

Thanks...and Cheers!
Jay

    Good questions Jay - these are some questions I've been wondering myself lately

    Personally, if I were going to join a PLR membership site it would have to be niche specific, otherwise you could just end up getting a heap of PLR for niches that you don't really need.

    So I guess if you are offering memberships that are niche specific then you will want to find the niches that are popular enough that people would want to pay a membership fee for.

    As far as features, extras, bonuses - personally, I'd prefer to get the amount of PLR that you advertise and have that PLR good quality, as opposed to getting extra bonuses (most of which I probably wouldn't use) at the expense of the quality of the PLR. I hope that makes sense

      Thanks for the reply Sheryl, and great points. Yes, the last point made perfect sense, and I'd rather the focus be on the packages myself anyway.

      Cheers!

    For me forum,tutorials are not important if you are providing quality PLR & complete package like with squeeze,sales,download page,email sequence - this is something i love the most.

    If u can provide a complete package PLR on high income potential niches I'd love to join your membership site.

    Support ofcourse is required but I'd say forum Im not very much seeing value of putting your time,effort into.

    I'm always looking for high quality content. I don't care about whether it comes with a squeeze page, or if you're including a huge quantity of articles. All I want are high quality articles, written by experts in the field. Not guys in India making $1 an hour.

    Just my personal opinion, but I've seen quite a few of the niche blog PLR come and go as quickly as they came because generally, most people do not want to be roped into niches that don't interest them. I want to choose my niches and from what I've read, I think most people want to choose their niches.

    So I would buy sites that offer the niche sites as you have been offering them, one at a time, but never pay for a membership that included niches that I don't want. Bonuses wouldn't sway me.

    The people, like yourself and me, and Lee, etc who are offering them one at a time are still around, but the people who launched the memberships ... I don't see them in Complete Sites for Sale anymore. There may be some new ones ... haven't checked lately, but I don't see any that have lasted.

      I would buy from a monthly membership PLR site, but only if it had quality articles (mainly to send to my list) in sales, business, and or writing/work-at-home related niches.

      I'd go for quality over quantity, and probably pay no more than $27 a month for such a service.

      Good luck!

      Peace, love, happiness, and prosperity,

    When it comes to content I mainly care about 2 things:

    1 - I already wanted it.

    I'm not interested in tons of content about subjects I have no interest/business in. I'm not going to go into a new niche just because someone gave me some content.

    2 - It's not content being used by other people.

    This is where PLR memberships become a problem for me. I have no interest in content that other people are also using. What's the point of me promoting the exact same content that people can get already from other people?

    I know that most people don't effectively use the PLR they get, but the fact that other people are being given the exact same content massively reduces its value to me.

    nothing to see here.

    PLR Membership sites can work well for you, especially if you are offering articles. If you can offer exclusive stuff that nobody has the people will find you.

    I have a PLR Membership site that I have running for approx 10 months now and I will say that it is a lot of work. I am constantly updating products, responding to emails, and trying to drive traffic to my site.

    If you are willing to put in the time, I personally think a PLR Membership site can work for you.

    Good Luck,
    Marcel

      If I was looking to join a PLR membership site, it would heve to be about a market I was already interested in.

      In my experience, I have found that the more narrow the niche, the less likely there is to be enough content available to use to build out a meduim sized site and do Web 2.0 sites as well.

      Sometimes the content articles for keyword phrases like RI home foreclosure and RI house foreclosure are just not varied enough to use without doing so much work, I might as well write from scratch.

    It's been mentioned by others but IMO it boils down to quality and quantity.

    Offering PLR that no one else has is a great plus too!

    We purchase quite a bit of plr articles every year to use for article spinning and backlinking purposes. In my opinion that is the number one reason to use plr. Now we use Big Content Search and it works great. Talk about a huge plr library. Plus they add more articles every month. Great deal for sure.

    Some good answers above. I believe it comes down to picking a niche that is not well served and then do it well. Be known for quality and you can't really go wrong.

    Great feedback, thanks a lot everyone!

    Looks like it's all about the quality (not too surprising, really )

    Also appears that extras features and bonuses don't mean squat to the majority.
    I feel the same way, but wasn't sure if I was in the minority, since you often see sooo many extras being added to "IM products". Sometimes too many extras and bonuses (especially when they're not actually complimentary to the offer) just seems like you're trying to make up for the lack of quality in the base product, but I know that's not always the case.

    Anyway, I appreciate the time you've taken to answer. Thanks again...

    Cheers
    Jay

      regardless of the niche...

      I have had issues with some 'providers' as they call what
      they are selling 'PLR' but have some very very quirky rules
      and definitions. some examples:
      -can not sell for less than $xx
      -can not sell even resale rights
      -can not combine with other products as a bonus
      -can not edit the videos
      -can not, can not, can not

      it can just be far too hard with some of these rules
      to actually figure out what you can do with the content!

      in effect, many so called PLR 'providers' are actually selling
      rebrandable resell rights, which I do not have any issue
      with as long as the product has been made 'vanilla' and
      is clean of references and/or links to the creators products.

      I often use PLR to add to my projects and are not necessarily
      used as they are delivered. so for me? I really like to have
      the right(s) to cut/chop/edit/shrink/expand the product/content
      as I see fit and not have to deal with a lot of crazy 'rights'
      that were NOT mentioned (btw) in the site's sales-letter.
