As bloggers, we are constantly looking for ideas for content creation. Sometimes, we may hit a wall – or find ourselves without enough time to sit down and brainstorm post titles. While you can hire a ghostwriter for your content, there is another way you can come up with topics for blog posts, and shorten the amount of time you spend creating content = Private Label Rights (PLR) content!
What exactly is PLR?
Private Label Rights content is a product, whether it be blog posts, articles, reports, ebooks, videos, or audio recording, with a license granting the new owner the right to use the content as he or she sees fit.
Someone else has done the writing (or recording) of this content, and once you purchase it, you can use it as your own! The potential drawback to using PLR, however, is that others will have the opportunity to purchase the exact same content you have bought.
The beauty of PLR is that you can edit the work, adding your own personality and opinions, to create something that is mostly original without all the research time of starting from scratch. It’s one way to get most of the work done for you – and it can be much more cost effective than hiring a ghostwriter.
With PLR content, you’re given a license that tells specifically what you can and can’t do with the package. The best PLR are those that have an unconditional license that basically allows the new owner to use and redo the product any way they like. You can add your own name, add and delete sections, even sell it on to others with a price that you determine. It’s as if you’re the original author without all of the work of authoring.
Where Can I Find Quality PLR?
I have used many piece of PLR content in my online business in the past. In fact, part of this tutorial was crafted from a PLR article! To find the best quality PLR out there, I highly recommend you stick with a few reputable names.
Some of these providers may have free PLR you can download to get a feel for their writing style.
Tiffany Lambert = PLR Mini Mart. Hands down, my favorite PLR provider. I actually won lifetime access to her PLR store, so I can personally vouch for the quality of her work. Most of her work is just $1 per page, so extremely affordable!
Honorable Mentions for PLR:
If none of these PLR providers have what you are looking for, you can always use Google to find the content you need. Type in your niche topic and add “+ PLR” at the end before hitting search.
Using PLR for Blog Content Ideas
There are many ways you can use PLR content to create new content for your blog. For posts, you can read through some PLR articles and draw ideas from them. Or you can take a report and break it down into 4-5 blog posts, tweaking the content to make it original as you go.
Even if you don’t want to purchase PLR content, you can still gather ideas from various packs for sale on the internet. Most PLR providers have descriptions of their products, complete with article titles (or chapter titles for ebooks). These are great thought starters for your own blog posts! If you want more, however, I recommend you buy the packs and use them to create your posts.
For video blogging, written PLR is even more valuable. Because most people are likely publishing the content as text, you can simply create a script from the article, with your own commentary, and it will make an original video.
