Are You Using PLR Successfully?
Wow, you’ve just found a mother lode of quality PLR articles for one of your niches and you quickly purchase and download them. You are going to make money with these babies, that’s for sure! But first you have to check your email, work out that techie problem, do some tweeting, do some online surfing (research, you know) and tweak your website header.
What happens is you lose your momentum and maybe even lose the PLR articles you downloaded. You’ve got to have a plan and you’ve got to know where to find the PLR you bought.
Let’s start with the location of your PLR.
You don’t have to download them to where your computer wants to send them by default. YOU tell them where to go. Create a folder in “Downloads” and call it “PLR”. Now create a folder inside “PLR” and name it your niche topic. Maybe it’s “Blogging” or “Fish” or “Green Energy”. Now your newly purchased articles have a place to go and you can download them safely without worrying you’ll never find them again.
It’s a good idea to rename the pack to something that makes sense to you. The seller might have given it a code name to keep the thieves away, but those names will only confuse you too. I prefer to put the subject and who I got it from. Example: bloggingplrAllstarplr.
Now on to the plan…
When you bought that article pack did you have something in mind regarding how to use them? It’s best if you do, but sometimes you’re going to buy when it comes along knowing you will be working with it on your very next project.
Here’s a sample plan for your PLR pack:
1. Download and decide how you want to use it.
- Use as blog posts?
- Put together in a report to add as a bonus to your product?
- Use as fodder for your membership site?
- Totally rewrite and submit it to an article directory?
2a. If you’re going to use it a bit later, add a note inside the folder where it’s located saying what you’re going to do with it. You might forget otherwise. Then put a note on your calendar for approximately the time you expect to be needing it to remind yourself you have it.
2b. If you’re using it now, make some further decisions. What else does it need? (more PLR articles to add to it if there aren’t enough to make up a report or ebook) How will you monetize it? (search Clickbank, Amazon, or your favorite affiliate product haunts). It’s important to do this before you do any rewriting because if you don’t have all the pieces before you do any reworking of the articles, you might be creating more work than necessary. You don’t want to rewrite an article one way and then pick a Clickbank product to promote and need to rewrite the article a different way.
If it’s for your membership site, consider it the backbone of the newest offering to your members but add more value to it. Resources, interviews, videos, screenshots, case studies, more in-depth information may be in order.
4. Post, email, or whatever action you need to do with your polished-up PLR. Set up your autoresponder to send out the emails in a series, drip-feed your blog posts, etc.
5. Pat yourself on the back for taking action.
6. Record what you did with the PLR articles pack and stick the note back in the original PLR folder. Why? Because you can use the PLR again in other ways and it’s wise to record what you’ve done so you don’t repeat yourself.
In summary, take that mother lode of quality PLR articles and put them to work as soon as possible. If you get in the habit of handling them immediately, you’ll get a rhythm going and build momentum, and likely see an increase in traffic and sales.
