Another Great Way To Use PLR Articles

24 replies
With the many ways to use PLR articles, I have found yet another one.

Using articles as scripts for videos!

No I'm not talking about turning them into slide show videos. I'm talking about using the articles as script outlines for your video presentations.

Suppose you are in the bobblehead niche (Thought I was going to say Dog Grooming huh?) and you have a PLR article that is titled: "The Top 5 Ways To Keep Your Bobblehead Clean".

You can turn your camera on and fire up the old dry erase pen and write the five ways on the whiteboard one at a time and comment (from the script) about each point.

You have just taken a piece of PLR and turned it into a presentation that Frank Kern would be proud of.

You can do this with a series of PLR articles and turn it into an entire video course.

I hope that gave you guys some ideas that you can use to beef up your own content.

    Hey Matt great idea (I know you have a ton of them), I've done this before by looking up articles on article directories and it works great because you can crank out videos fast, just by getting a few quick ideas.

    I haven't used a whiteboard yet... but that would definitely be cool.

      Great idea, Matt!

      So many people get stuck into thinking that if they get articles, they must stay articles. Or when they get an ebook, it must stay an ebook.

      Get creative - chop stuff up, add stuff in, change the format completely. That's how you make PLR work for you.

    That is a great idea!

    I actually just recently made some videos with short tips which I gleaned from PLR articles - not the kind of video you are talking about but one that I made at animoto so with pictures and then a tip after each.

      That's a really good idea too. Especially for those folks who are a little shy.

      Thanks Lee

      This is fine if you rewrite the PLR and add new information, etc. All the recent Kindle threads show why using it "as is" is a bad idea.


      Great idea regarding videos.

          Fantastic idea and one I plan to start using. People get way too stuck thinking that PLR is garbage. I find PLR to be just the thing to get "unstuck" and get stuff created!

        Of course Rose. If you are going to put your name on it, you better be sure that the book is reworded and of high quality and not some crappy over saturated PLR materials.

    Good info Matt. By using this method, you've not only re-purposed the PLR but you've pretty much created a unique content. Using this method means not wasting time on the idea itself but rather adding to it.

    Not bad. Youtube videos if you are presenting, the popular ones, even kiddie blogs are commercialized. They use makeup, lighting, often green or blue screens, staged sets.

    Hi Matt... I cracked a smile after reading this post. The other night I actually wrote a blog post and suggested the same thing after listening to a painful 30 minute marketing sales pitch. I did joke that his rambling kept me company in the kitchen while I cooked dinner... OMG! Blah blah blah and a can of beans too! - it's one of my best titles ever!

    I think the use of PLR is a brilliant idea (whaddya know - I just happen to write PLR) but I must add that the person using this method SHOULD spend a few minutes practicing so that the flow of words is natural instead of stiff and halting. It also gives the reader time to listen to the cadence of the words- unfortunately what looks good on screen or paper can actually sound terrible when spoken aloud. I've had one too many bad experiences and now make sure I do at least one practice with any speech or presentation. It is a simple method that can save you time and make you look good.

    Very interesting idea! Haven't thought of that before. Do you also upload these video presentations to Youtube to get traffic to your main site?

    Great idea Matt! This is good for more generic sort of products, although I find the best products usually have a bit of the creator's own special sauce in it.

      Hi Matt,

      Grats! You've presented a 'fit to eat' idea. I think, it is almost as good as a Chef Boyardee Beefaroni.

      Like many things, the quality of presentation depends on the the cook, so it is up to your creativity. It has a big advantage, that don't need big investments to implement your idea, only your will.

      It won't hurt to approach your audience in number of ways.

      Cheers,

      Sandor
