New guy here, first post. Sorry if I couldn't find the answer elsewhere but I did search... Question: If PLR is used for it's ideas, and re-written, why buy PLR? Why wouldn't you just search for your topic/niche, find interesting content, get ideas, and "re-write" anything you find?? Thanks in advance!

    Yes you can write articles yourself or hire a virtual assistant to help you. But there are PLR articles available which will speed up the process and are much cheaper to paying or writing yourself.

    There are good article spinners available.

    The nest is to use combination of both. You can write a few articles yourself and pick up PLR articles to build backlinks, blog submissions and link building.

    Lots of people do what you are suggesting.

    Depending on who you get PLR content from, it is often easier to edit the content you have. Sometimes not so much, but sometimes, it is excellent.

    Plus, you have the rights to do that.

    PLR is often already formatted in some manner. For instance a PLR Ebook alread has some formatting. If you change it, you can see how it flows as you go.

    Research is good. But you have to do much more work with it. You have to find the research, organize it, structure, proofread, etc..

    While you will still have to do some of this (depending on the plr quality), it will go quicker.

    PLR content is quick and dirty. It just works and in most cases still gets indexed pretty quickly. I have a boatload of PLR content on reserve just in case I don't feel like writing that day, but still need to update one of my niche blogs.

    Speed.

    You can go out and search and get ideas, or you can throw $5 at Tradebit.

    Sometimes you have more time than money. Sometimes it's the other way around.

    I love PLR when I am writing articles on one niche after a while I run out of ideas and I start to feel like I'm writing the same thing over and over again. If I grab some PLR it gives me someone elses angle on the same topic and a new place to start.

    I always rewrite PLR but it just gives me new ideas and a new approach to my niches. And it is actually easier to rewrite an article than to research and write from scratch.

    This is a very intelligble question.
    I don't mind answering from my perspective.

    People will buy PLR for a number of reasons. Some will buy it for the graphics they can use and create a swipe file so they have ready on hand graphics to compliment their current product.

    Others buy PLR for the filler of a product they are writing.
    Other people will buy it to use as a base and ramp it up rewriting adding and making it more impactful on the subject.

    The thing is that it is not about why people buy it but it is more to the point that they are -it is a huge market.
    I use PLR to do many things but that should give you an idea of what people do from my perspective anyhow
    cheers

      Hello,
      I agree with Sheryl, I write PLR articles and I'm constantly adding new stuff, but I also purchase PLR as well. It's much easier to rewrite an article than to come up with something from scratch, and if you choose a quality PLR provider, that simplifies the process even more.
      PLR written with SEO in mind is a goldmine. Wade through the junk and find the good stuff, that way you can concentrate on marketing.
      Thanks!

        Quality PLR does not need to be altered at all if you sell it through your auto responder or a membership site. Many people simply change the graphic covers and titles so that the product looks new and original. Meanwhile, the content is untouched.

        PLR can save you the time in researching it yourself. Plus, you have something with meat that you can modify and make unique to your needs. With so many people online today, it's not likely they will see multiple versions of your product all over the place, but of course that depends on a number of things.

        Now, articles are a different story. If you plan to distribute them through article directories, then you will have to rewrite them. If you put them on your own site, you don't necessarily have to alter them. It would be easy, though, to re-target them for different keywords and build your site around those.

        And then there are the obvious uses as already discussed - people only use the graphics, for instance. Another is to package the product with other bundles and sell them or give them away.

        There are tons of uses for PLR that do not require doing much work to it, so there is a perfectly valid reason to buy PLR rather than do your own research and writing.

          I don't really agree with doing that. If you have the same ebook or report and just change the graphics and title, then customers can be buying the ebook, even though they've already bought it elsewhere, because they think it is a different ebook. I would only ever resell an ebook as is if I kept the graphics and title so at least the customers would know they already own that book.

            Sheryl,

            Surprisingly, people do simply change graphics and sell the book as is. I've seen it suggested in various how-to products, which is why I mentioned it here.

            You are right, of course, there is the chance someone will buy the same book twice. I've done it myself for this very reason. How often does it happen? Who knows. It's really about if you want to take that risk.

            Me, I rewrite EVERYthing. In fact, a lot of things I write are triggered by PLR. But... my product is nothing at all like that PLR. It merely gives me the ideas and then I go off on my own tangent. Even the facts and the entire thrust of the article alter.

            Granted, I could probably get the same benefit from reading the dictionary. It only takes a word or phrase to get me started.

    Thanks all! When I figure out how to Thank you formally I will do so (any help?). I guess I was thinking in terms of articles more than ebooks. If I read a few articles on a topic I can write my own based on what I have learned. Why then, would I pay for articles and use them for the same purpose? I have a lot to learn. No idea how to "re-target" articles or how they wouldn't show up more than once on a site if I did. @Ted_B Are there any specific PLR providers known for quality content with SEO in mind? Thanks again

    That's the exact approach I use. I find that the content I find through Google is pretty good or excellent (it's also free and updated). The research/reading part takes 5 minutes. For me, it's important to do this part FAST. I admit I already know quite a bit about my niche, so that may explain why I don't spend much time on research.

    Once I've read enough of the material, I close it up and then rewrite the whole thing from scratch. It's usually another 10 minutes to rewrite it.

    why buy PLR?
    Some of the graphics on newer PLR products are spectacular.
    Although I am getting much better with Photo Shop the time it takes
    to produce stunning graphics is not always worth it to me.
    Editing text is the simple part.

    Why not buy PLR? For as little as $1 per article you can save all the time you would have to research the subject and get articles. All you have to do is take the PLR and rewrite it. Plus a lot of the better PLR that you pay for will already have a keyword phrase in there to target.

    Here is some more info on how you can use PLR in a different thread: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ne-income.html

    As mentioned above, PLR has so many uses, but my personal favorite thing to do with it is to gather a bunch of articles/reports and combine them into a new unique report and, if necessary, fill in the gaps with my own content.

    It's a great way to shorten up the time it would take to write it all by scratch.

    Depending where and who you purchase it from, really high quality PLR can be just as effective as content written by a professional ghost writer when you are using it to pre-sell your readers/subscribers/visitors etc.

    A little devil's advocate. Don't hate me as I'm new, don't know all the etiquette here but... The most opinionated respondents seem to have references to PLR in their signature. Does that mean that you sell PLR? Not saying that's bad but it's like asking a room full of dentists if you should have regular cleanings. Anyway, my point is if I read any article, why couldn't I re-write it and make it my own? Why should I buy PLR?

      LOL@ room full of dentists. Good for you for asking that and nobody should be offended by it. I'm not, and I have a link to PLR in my sig.

      I can't speak for the others, but I'm guessing that like me, those PLR sellers also buy PLR for their "other ventures", so their opinions are likely genuine.

      For instance, I sell PLR blog packages, but I will often buy PLR for other projects of my own. Reasons can vary, depending what type of PLR I'm buying...

      - Research
      - Quick reference to send to my writer/VA (to save time/money)
      - Learn something myself, but have the added benefit of PLR rights (sell or giveaway to my own customers)
      - Package up as extra content bonuses to my products
      - Get started fast/test a niche by quickly building a site with PLR (add more/unique content later)

      Cheers

      Well, what did you expect when someone starts a thread on PLR? Of COURSE people selling it are going to respond. For one reason, we have to protect our businesses / investments.

      Of course you can just grab any old article and rewrite it yourself. I've done it tons of times, before I even thought about selling PLR or using it myself. In fact, I still source ideas from the internet quite frequently.

      I guess the real question is more about if you have the time, ability or inclination to write your own material from scratch. Some people don't.

      Many people mix-and-match PLR with products they have created to build up their offers such as adding bonuses. Or they use it to pad out their product, perhaps turning it into a movie or an audio. If you spend all that time on your own products, chances are you'd love to get your hands on something that another person has created for you.

      If that person is a professional writer , the quality will be there which means you'll have less trouble modifying it if you choose.

      I've opened some PLR that was very poorly written and tried to 'fix' it. Cripes! It would have been 1000 times easier to just write the thing myself, it was that bad. Yet other PLR that I worked with was so good that rewriting was very easy. All the thoughts were there, the information was good, and it made sense.

      In the end, it depends on the individual whether or not to buy PLR. Clearly there is a need for it or there wouldn't be so many people selling it.

    The only PLR I buy are reports mainly to get ideas on what to include in my own reports. I'll look at the chapters and then research them to see if it's something my niche is interested in or not.

    However, most PLR articles I've come across have been a pile of useless junk. Maybe it's because I'm not actively seeking the decent ones but that's the impression they give me.

    PLR isn't just articles.

    You can get PLR for software, images, music, graphics, and many other kinds of things, and then repurpose them into a new product.

    All PLR really does is give you rights to use the content of product produced by someone else without you needing to worry about copyright infringement.

    What you can then do with it is limited only by your own imagination.
