Selling PLR Articles, Still Works?

17 replies
Hi Warriors,

I've been thinking in selling PLR article packages here at the Warrior forum, but after some researching on the WSO section, it seems to me that people are not as interested in them as in the past.

What do you think about it? PLR Articles still sell? Are you particularly interested in buying PLR articles these days?

    I both buy and sell PLR quite often. We also have several successful PLR sellers around here. I notice ebooks and reports sell better than articles in the WSO section. If you want to do well, don't rely totally on the WSO section. Rather use the WSO section for list building or special sales, such as a package with an ebook or a large pack of articles.

    No, my main source of income is affiliate marketing, mostly ClickBank products. This is where my buyer experience comes in. I buy a lot of PLR to help save time when coming up with content for my own sites. I would say about 60% of my articles are rewritten or re purposed PLR while the rest are written specifically for my site. Saves a lot of time so I can have more content available on each site.

    Ya PLR saves a lot of time , and it still works , especially if sell it as a bundle for a lower price.

    Also you can re-write it and use it as follow up emails for your list to nurture your relationship and provide them with value.

    I've got a PLR sale going on right now and it's doing pretty well. I'm slowly growing my list and will be opening up a membership site in the new year!

      I've seen several people in the forum tension that they make decent money selling PLR content. I looked into it myself as I am a writer and have private labeled entire home study courses to select clients in the past.

      Selling 100 licenses for $10 for a PLR pack of 10 articles sounds pretty good, but after doing more research I figured out that e-books and larger packages of content are probably more worth your time.

      Since then I have flat-out written a few home study courses from scratch for $3-$5000, or written an e-book for someone or $100-$1500 by making an outline from ideas in existing courses, dictating the body of the content, and paying an editor to clean it up and have a graphics guy add some pictures and covers to it. this has worked well for me and seems easier than dealing with $10 piecemeal buyers here and there, although I'm sure that works too.

      So having said that, you could write an e-book or report in the same manner and maybe license the rights to 10 different marketers total and get paid multiple times for the same job.

      P.S. I'm dictating this and don't feel like editing it so don't take this as a sample of my work!

        So say I want to buy, or have outsourced PLR content, and then sell this content. finding a writer for me seems like the only option as I dont have the patience to write articles.

        Where are all the good writers that will let me sell what they write at a higher price? lol

    I am new to the Warrior Forum, but I can tell you PLR articles do sell. Content and the internet go hand in hand. There will always be a need for quality material. The key is to create value with bundle packages. The demand and possibilities are endless.

    Yes, PLR content still sells, and it sells well. I am both a PLR buyer and seller, and I have created a nice income stream for myself with my PLR store. If you don't believe PLR is still a hot seller, check out Tiffany Dow...who makes several thousand each month from her PLR site.

    I just wanted to chime in here and say selling PLR does work. I make several thousand dollars a month from my PLR, but I didn't develop the successful business overnight. In fact, for the first 6 months I made an average of $50 a month from my PLR! The key thing to do is build a list - free WSOs are a great way to do this and then also collect buyers' emails from paid WSOs. It builds and builds until you know you'll always make sales from your packs.

    As for writing the stuff, I personally do write it all myself but others do outsource. One thing I suggest is that it must be high quality. After all, it's easy for potential buyers to go and download "103,272 PLR articles for $1!" or a similar offer. You want to be selling roughly just one article for $1, so you need to differentiate yourself from that cheap stuff by putting out quality content.

    It still works, but personally selling ebooks, short reports and courses are more appealing to me...

    I buy PLR all the time. I look for high quality PLR that isn't loaded down with a ton of restrictions. Good PLR saves me a lot of time.

    You need to be more established I think, and you've got to consider whether you're willing to give potential PLR buyers a free copy. It's often not a good idea based on who the person is.

    If your product conforms with the following two principles, it's good to sell:
    1) It has a lot of sales, with a lot of unpaid reviews
    2) It is a real-deal product, not a fluff product.

    Of course, you'd hope that all WSO's fit category two, but sadly they don't.
