Making Money with Private Label Rights

Private Label Rights, or PLR, is written content that can be sold to others to use for whatever purpose they wish. Website owners search for these to get content for their sites for a small or even no fee.

When putting it that way it doesn’t sound like a money making opportunity, but the thing is, the same package of written content can be sold numerous times to other people. Here’s how it works.

For example, let’s say you are selling a package of 10 articles all about the same topic. Let’s say pet care. Typically, these packages are sold at about $1 an article. Someone who has a website about pet care needs articles to place on their site, so they buy a package from you. You just made $10.

Now, that same package of 10 articles can be sold again and again and again. In the end, you can sell the same 10 articles 50 times over bringing you a grand total of $500 just for that one package. You can sell more than one package of PLR articles at the same time, thus increasing your profit potential.

Everyone charges something different and offers different types of PLR content as well as diverse article topics. In addition to article packages, you can sell ebooks and special reports. People can take these articles and change them to their needs to use whatever way they desire.

What skills are helpful?

Writing skills are necessary. You would need to write good quality articles even though those who buy them will change them anyway. You could hire a ghostwriter to write them, but keep in mind you would have to pay the ghostwriter for his or her time, so this is a good option if you don’t mind losing spending some money.

It is also necessary to market your PLR content. In order to make good money in this business, you will need to get people to find your content. This means pulling out all the stops when starting this business.

What tools will I need?

If you’re going to write the article content yourself, you would need a computer with word processing software installed. A website will also be needed so you have a place to sell your PLR.

If you choose to hire someone to write the content for you, then you will need to find a ghostwriter that fits your budget and provides good quality content.

How do you get started?

The first place to start will be getting the articles written. You will want to make sure that the package of articles that you will sell together relate to a certain topic. Topics can include gardening, pet care, nutrition, exercise, etc. It is a good idea that each article package contains articles in the same topic.

Decide which price you will sell the articles for, and get a website set up to sell them from. You can certainly use a website that provides the service of selling them for you, but you’re better off selling them off your own site and marketing them yourself.

There is good money in PLR if you choose this kind of business since there are millions of websites out there that need quality content. With good marketing techniques, you can quite easily make a good living for you and your family.
