Five Strategies to Profit from PLR Content
If you have a huge bundle of PLR content sitting on your hard drive, it’s time to put those articles and reports to use. You have the perfect opportunity to increase your cash flow instantly!
Let’s take a look at five strategies you can use to profit from PLR content….
1. Affiliate commissions with product reviews
One of the easiest ways to profit from PLR content is to use it to generate affiliate commissions. And one of the most effective forms of promotional content is creating product reviews.
People often research online before they make a purchase. By providing information that helps them make that decision, you’re essentially positioning yourself in the right place at the right time. When someone is reading reviews, they’re already in a buying state of mind. Take a look at the products or services you’re affiliated with and create a plan to write a review for each one. Include your affiliate link and earn commissions.
How to easily implement this idea using PLR: Product reviews “presell” to your readers before they click on your affiliate link. Use some of your PLR content related to the product or niche to presell on how or why product XYZ could benefit them.
Example: You could give a general review over product XYZ, including the pros and cons. From plr content (I’ll use this blog post here as an example), you could take the 5 main points and shorten the explanation of each point to present 5 benefits of using such a product as XYZ.
2. Build your list with a free report
Email marketing is still one of the best ways to generate a steady cash flow. Anyone who signs up for your email list is a pre-qualified prospect. By signing up they’ve said, “Yes, I’m interested in your information, products or services.”
You can quickly create a report to build your email list by using PLR content. For example, if you have an informational site on the topic of home organization you might create a report titled “101 tips to organize your home.” (Compile several PLR articles together if necessary to create a huge list of tips on a particular topic…or simply buy a PLR report already formatted — then add a link to your salespage.) Give away this report as an incentive for visitors to subscribe to your email list.
3. Sell ad space in your ezine
PLR articles are perfect for creating online newsletters. If you have an ezine or newsletter consider selling ad space in it once you have a good number of subscribers. It’s a great way to earn a few extra dollars. In the meantime, while you’re drumming up advertisers, you can hold their place with AdSense ads. Get your readers accustomed to seeing ads in your ezine and make money on click throughs.
4. Drive traffic to your product sales page with blog posts.
Do you sell a product or service? Use informative PLR articles (shorten them if necessary) and publish them on your blog. Make sure to include a call to action at the end of your post to drive traffic to your sales page.
For example, you might say, “For more information on how to organize your home in 30 days, click here.” You’ll convert many of those click throughs and increase your profits.
5. Boost credibility and opportunities with ebooks.
Publishing is one of the best ways to increase your credibility in your niche. As a society we often turn to published writers for advice, insight and use of their products or services.
Publication establishes you as an authority on a topic. Consider writing an ebook or creating an information product. The sales you generate will boost your income and you’ll also drive more traffic and sales to your website.
Of course, writing from scratch can take a lot of time and commitment, but remember you can certainly combine several PLR articles or reports on a particular topic as a basis to help you create a quality ebook worth selling.
As you can see, there’s many strategies to help you profit from PLR content. We’ve only just scratched the surface here on opportunity. Take a look at your business model and use one of these ideas to increase your cash flow for your online business.
