How to Use PLR Articles to Create an Online Income

50 replies
I have been using PLR articles and other article marketing methods to make a good online income for a while and I wanted to share some of what I do with the forum.

1. I use both free and paid for PLR because it is super cheap and I make my money back pretty quickly with it.

2. I rewrite all of the PLR articles 5 times before I use them. (sometimes I outsource this task because this is also very cheap)

3. After rewriting my PLR I submit one of the rewrites to my blog that has either adsense or amazon products on it, depending on the subject matter.

4. The other 4 are submitted as follows and all link back to my blog:

- 1 to Hubpages along with a picture that is related
- 1 to Squidoo along with a picture as well
(the key with hubpages and squidoo is to use a lot of related tags....it helps your
traffic)
- 1 to Ezinearticles and this has to be very unique
- 1 to a list of 10 other top article directories (goarticles, articlebase, etc.)

5. Then, I simply move onto the next set of PLR

**Tip**

I build all my blogs on the same domain name with a sub domain for each subject. I also use wordpress along with a few free plugins including the All in one SEO Pack, Sociable, Onlywire, and Statcounter to track my visitors.

I can put out about 15 - 20 of these sets each week and have built up a nice income with this strategy.

This is a great way for a newbie or someone that wants another source of income to get it.

Hope this helps at least one person out there!

    Great tips Benjamin. I always rewrite PLR but not 5 times but I can certainly see how this strategy would work. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice.

    Good use of websites like Hubpages as well.

    I like using PLR articles as they are good for referencing back to if you are stuck on what to write about, especially in unfamiliar niches.

      Very true too - I reach a point where I feel like I'm writing the same thing over and over again and then grab some PLR at it gives you a new approach to the same topic.

      I have thought about getting into video as well because I know there is a lot of traffic to be made here. I guess I just get side tracked with other things and have not gotten into video just yet.

        Its not that hard to do. I even offer PLR in "pre-video" formats. For instance, I take an article, convert it to Power point slides. Then either record the slideslow or create an actual video.

        Corel offers a free trial of their video editor (listing in my last post).

        It took me about 1 day to learn the basics. A week to become pretty proficient. I have only done one video with it so far, but plan on doing tons more (just started with videos last week)..

        Not to mention, I have seen some real nice implementations of videos on this forum. If your going to do video, which you should, consider doing some quick research here to get ideas.

          If you make a powerpoint presentation so that it auto advances by recording the timing (with or without narration) and save it, you can upload it to authorstream and they have an option to convert it to video. Takes a couple of hours, but they email you when it is finished. Pretty good quality, especially for the price!

          I will have to schedule some time to start learning how to put the videos together properly. This could be a nice addition to the model I have already created.

            PLR can be a great source of income if you know how to work with it. I find that the articles give me a new point of view when the writer's block sets in. A quick rewrite from some PLR and I'm back on track.

            Yes, article writing is a lot of work. There's no way around it, unless you outsource. One valuable aspect of article writing that people miss, is that it can be timeless. Once it's done, it's not going anywhere. It can take some time to get noticed, but it's out there and waiting. It's kind of neat to see a huge traffic increase and trace it back to an article that you wrote over a year ago that recently got some good press.

              I agree fully that article writing is a lot of work, but is also timeless. I have articles that I thought were horrible and that I wrote 8 years ago that still make me a sale or two here or there. Some of them still make hundreds a month for me in adsense income.

              I will say that I am glad I learned how to do article marketing and how to use PLR articles because it is a great base to start with for other methods of marketing as well.

            Ben,

            If you use ppt presentations, keep them short. 5-6 slides can be a 1-2 minute video, depending on the content and transitions you use.

            There are websites that convert powerpoint to flash for free.

            Depending on how your model is setup, you could also do one or two more steps to add some serious links to your sites.

            Below is a cut and paste from my basic marketing plan template that I use to pitch offline clients. But you will see how I utilize existing content as much as potentially possible.


            OFF PAGE FACTORS


            Link building 101

            Submit site to active directory lists in order to receive back-links, this will take 6-12 weeks to have impact, but still useful for long-term effects.


            Link building 102

            Request links from niche specific sites if possible, time consuming but carry greater weight if they are in a edu, or .gov niche.


            Link Building 103

            Generate additional content that is published via the site/blog/other, where the content is linked back to sites under our control, as pages are ranked, not sites, these too can provide links and potential landing pages for people to visit.


            Link Building 201

            Article marketing – create content articles for the purpose of link building. these articles will be generally 300-600 word in length. Submit these articles to top 10-20 article directories. each article includes two links to our site in the bio section. Make sure this content actually answers a question and is useful to the community as a whole.



            Link Building 202

            Advanced method article marketing – rewritten content submitted to other less known article directories which in turn drive even more traffic. These articles are “spun” to represent unique content, thereby maintaining greater internet stickiness. Tons of sites with identical content has less effect then unique content.



            Link Building 301

            Audio / video linking - sites like YouTube are taking the internet by storm. Millions of visitors are hungry for new content on these sites.



            Take content that presently exists, using either software or an actual audio recording, create the same articles into videos. Higher quality videos can be done if needed but not required, then send those audio and video files to audio and video specific directories. These directories allow for keyword additions to the video and link back to our website/s. A good video series can go viral and produce hundreds of thousands of hits in less then 24 hours.
            • do not advertise, but instead provide valuable content services, with links back to the site.
            Link Building 302

            Press Releases - make sure that any and all press releases that are submitted include no less then 1 link and no more then three. Preferably two links in this manner.
            1 http:// < link to your site >.tld
            2 “some keyword phrase here” <- linked using html


            This strategy covers two major aspects of link building. The first link allows for anyone reading the press release to actually know where the site is located, click the link and visit the site. Thereby driving considerable targeted traffic to our site.


            The second link is for the search engines. Since each link is attached to a keyword phrase, the search engines will begin to rank us for those specific keywords. A press release will often stick around on the internet for some time, Also many of the sites that host Prs are of a high page rank. This give the link further weight in how effective the link will be.


            Since PRs can be done over the long haul, this will mean long term visibility and linking for keywords that we need to continually update.


            Not all content needs to be spun. For instance, if you create 6 copies, submit 5 to top places where you want unique content. Then create the sixth one as a full article. Then create a short ppt based on it. Submit that version to multiple article directories using a submitter program. Then take your ppt and convert to vide using free site or software, and distribute it via youtube and other video sites.

            Try to get the most out of each article.

      Presently I use two methods, depending on the video or work I want to put into it.

      Use Powerpoint presentation and then record the slideslow on your pc using a screen capture program like camstudio or camtasia.

      Or using a video editor, like Corel Video Studio pro, I create background images in the niche, then add audio files, then use titles in place of "slide text" and go from there.

      Typically I monetize my blogs with adsense, but if the PLR I am using is about something that has to do with electronics or another hot category for products I will add some amazon widgets and some links into the actual article.

      Always glad to help in any way I can.

      That section is only one part of my "marketing tamplate". My template alone I think is around 15 pages in brief. I use it as a guideline and then cater it to match either the industry or client depending on need.

      I created an outline first, listed all the factors I wanted to cover, listed services, and even special topics. The outline is about 5 pages. ;-)

      I was considering selling it as a WSO in the future. I still might. Probably should clean it up a bit first though.

        I would certainly sell it as a WSO in the future, which I think would be quite helpful for a lot of new marketers and experienced marketers.

          You convinced me. I will work on cleaning it up for sale.

          But really. I have created so many things over the last couple years that I haven't gotten to yet. You should see my stack of post-it notes with all my IM stuff on them.

          Hard to keep track of them all. (being disorganized likely doesn't help me either)

            I understand all too well. I have 3 projects that I am working on right now specifically and have had to learn how to concentrate on just one at a time. FOCUS is a hard thing to do, but when you break it down it is:

            F = Find a Project that will Move you Towards your Goal

            O = Occupy yourself with nothing else until you finish the project

            C = Concentrate on tasks that make up that single project

            U = Understand that nothing else is more important

            S = Succeed

            I am not sure where I originally got this, but when I saw it I had to put it on my wall. I do my best to follow this and it has helped me a lot.

              Ben,

              I myself use the 3 C's - Consistent Congruent Commitment

              Consistent - Do something daily, no matter how little, just do it repetatively

              Congruent - do something not having or showing any apparent conflict with the end result

              Commitment - keep doing it.

              Simple fact. Keep moving in the right direction every day and eventually you will get there.

        Good luck with my tips Benjamin. I already making 3 free report with this technique, one being sold at $7 and two of them are free.

        I just want to know how to spread my free report more so I can get more list (buyer list mainly), and scale up my business.

        Do you know anything about traffic generation from report distribution? Perhaps you can help me with this one.

          I don't know much about this, but I am trying out a new trick with reports to get traffic to them. I am using an idea from another post on the forum, but I cannot find it for some reason.

          Anyway, basically you create a report, then sell it on fiverr and other sites like fiverr. You can promote something in it and you can build a list from it.

          Alam,

          How to generate traffic is the eternal question. There are literally hundreds of methods for traffic generation. EBAY, classified ads, Fiverr, WSO offering, you name it.

          Think outside the box. Do whatever you can to get stuff in front of people.

    I have heard this before, about building using subdomians. How do you do this? I know what a dubdomain is and I use them on some sites. What do you do to get so many different topics on one site.

    Would you go with a generic domain name. Something like JBPBestTips.com and then use subdomains like losefat.JPBBestTips.com or CheapInsurance.JBPBestTips.com.

    Then on each subdomain build a blog with adsense or amazon. Then backlink to each page in the subdomain.

    Am I thinking about this the right way.

      JBP,

      This is often based on your hosting account. If you host allows for unlimited subdomains, then all you have to do is create them in your CPanel. Once you do this, the server creates it as a "subfolder" then just visit it like a normal website link and install additional copies of your chosen software, joomla, wordpress.

      The main concern, is the database. You can use 1 db for multiple sites. BUT:

      IMPORTANT: make sure that you alter the "DB prefix" when you install the site.

      For instance, wordpress puts "wp_" before all table names. wp_users for instance. Altering prevents the install from overwriting it.

      Once a subdomain is created, it is essentially a completely seperate website as far as the server is concerned.

        I assume then that the option to change the db prefix is given to me in fantastico when I install wordpress.

          It has been a while since I used fantastico, but yes, there should be an option for changing the db prefix for the installed files.

          Just make sure you consider space and resources. If you have limited space consider getting another account. (or better yet a reseller account).

          Also, the more sites you cram into a DB, the slower the DB can get. Also, if something ever happens to the DB< all sites will be affected.

          Me personally I started my own hosting company just to accomodate hundreds of websites.

      This is similar to how I do it. I just try to find something general. For instance, if I were doing product reviews I might choose a domain like TopProductReviews.com, then use a sub domain like XYZProduct.TopProductReviews.com.

        I think I am going to give this a go. I might not rewrite the PLR 5 times. I just checked and I have way too much PLR on my computer that is just sitting there collecting cyberdust.

        I really should make it work for me.

        Thanks.

            J/k

            I will keep that in mind. I am pretty decent at writing. What I suck at is typing.

    Thanks for sharing what you do with PLR in so much detail, Benjamin. PLR is often overlooked and denigrated by marketers, but it is so versatile and useful if repurposed the right way, such as how you've described.

      Absolutely. This is built right into my wordpress blogs with a few plugins. I also like to use one that allows others to share my content through social medias.

    **This was a PM I received earlier today and I thought it was important enough to share with everybody so we can all learn**

    **Happy to elaborate and If you don't mind I am going to post this in the thread for everybody else to learn from too. I have answered each one below:

    Hello, Thanks for sharing the information in your thread on PLR.

    Ive just got a few questions.

    1. Have you had much success using this method by monetizing with CPA offers? If so, which sort of offers work best. Do you recommend using offers which convert on the 1st page such as email/zip submits or do free trials work well?

    Answer: I have never really tried to use CPA offers in this fashion. Typically I only use Adsense or Amazon products because they convert really well. Plus if you get someone to amazon and they buy a product that has nothing to do with what you were promoting you still make cash.


    2. You mentioned using tags, do you also do keyword research before re-writing the PLR.

    What number of monthly searches for the keyword should i look for and how many times should the keyword be in the article presuming the article length is approx 300 words.

    I don't do a lot of keyword research because usually the PLR article will have a keyword in it that I can use. Plus this is a very time consuming process and can make you second guess what you are doing. Another point here is many times the articles will get listed for keywords you were not even targeting so to me it is better just to get them out there and not really mess with too much keyword research.

    I don't concern myself with monthly searches because some keywords are very product specific and will convert into sales or clicks really well even if only a few people search for them.

    Typically with tags I just add as many general and long tail keywords as I can and the traffic you will get will normally come from the tags pages getting indexed or already being indexed.

    3. Whilst waiting for Ezine to approve an article, is it ok to submit the article to other article directories or would this mean that Ezine would reject the article because it would be seen as duplicate content?

    Well, one thing you can do is you can do a full rewrite for EZA and one for the rest of the directories. A lot of times I will do this just so I can submit to other directories while waiting for EZA and other times I will do this so that I can link back to my EZA article as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Your post is what I call "Got Help When Needed". Nice one. I have some articles written out of some free PLR related to the niche I am targeting.

    I submit the same article to both hubpages and squidoo. Didn't had any problem in getting it accepted.

    But with your idea and a bit of twist of mine seems to rank good if what I am thinking works accordingly.

    Nice post buddy.

      Thank you Warren. My main reason for doing a full rewrite for hubpages and squidoo is that they are so different. You can only do so much with a hub compared to a squidoo lens and I cater differently to each one so that I can get traffic and backlinks from them properly.
