PLR contents To Make Money
Making money with PLR contents is one of the easiest method. But to make money with PLR, you need a strategy of adding value. Here, we will discuss step by step how you can add value to your PLR contents.
What is PLR content?
PLR is the abbreviation of Private Label Rights. That means, the author of content gives rights to edit, modify and add more content to it. So, you can claim authorship of the edited or the unedited content.
My Way To Make Money With PLR content
Let me tell you that Internet marketers need to go through transforming PLR contents. Because It benefits them in many ways. For instance, you can create new content by transforming PLR contents and brand your name. It is the easiest method to establish your online presence and, also, make money with the value-added PLR content.
Well, creating valuable content from scratch may be the best way to contribute. But you cannot produce as many as you like and as fast as you want. So the best way to solve the problem is transforming PLR contents and adding value to it. But I like to mix up unique contents and changed PLR contents.
How To Repackage a PLR Content- Step By Step
I’ll show you how I take a piece of PLR package, how I edit it to make my own, and how I make money with the enhanced PLR content.
You can do the process of transforming PLR contents in many ways and using different tools. But I will show you how I do it with examples. Also, I’ll let you download a PLR package from here to practice on it. So, keep following me.
Down Load Responsive List Building Secrets (PLR package)
Step1- Download PLR Package And Check What’s In It.
Download the package and unzip the file and you’ll get a folder, “Responsive List Building Secrets.” Open the folder. Inside, you will get another three folders named graphics, Report, and Web site. Also, there will be a text file named License.txt.
Now, open the license.txt to check what are rights from your download. And go through the file. You will see the owner has given “unrestricted private label rights.” So we can do whatever we like with these files.
The second important thing you should do is browse through the folders to see what’s in it.
There are few images of the 3d book cover and a flat book cover in the “Images” folder. We will not use these. We will create our book cover.
The second folder contains two files. Responsive List Building Secrets.pdf and Responsive List Building Secrets.doc. We don’t need the pdf file. We will take the doc file, edit, rename and personalize the file, and convert it to our pdf file.
We are supposed to host the files of the “Website” folder on our server. But we will not use these files because we will be creating our web files, for instance, the sales page, squeeze page, download page, etc.
BTW, we will put our names in all the files that we are transforming or creating.
Step2- Make a Strategy To Make Money With PLR Contents
To make money with PLR contents, you must add value. We will give a new look to our PLR to make it stand out.
Now, let’s choose a color theme. Check the images of the “graphics” folder. They used a blue theme, so I should choose a color theme that is different from the original PLR package. Let’s say we choose deep green as our color for this project.
First, we are going to edit and personalize the main e-book. The name of the e-book is “Responsive-List-Building-Secrets.” But we are going to rename it with something similar.
I use Google to search for a similar name with similar meaning. So I searched for “Responsive List Building Secrets” in the Google search. And I came up with a similar and straightforward title, “How to Build Responsive Mailing List.” So, we are going to use this name instead of the original name.
Step3- Formatting The PLR Contents
Now open a new blank document file. I use Open Office Writer, but the process is the same in MS Office or Google doc.
I want to change my Document’s appearance so that it looks different from the original file. And make it somewhat ‘stand alone.’
Now the default page size in an Open Office is 8.50″ X11″. We need to customize it. To increase the page width to 9.50,” go-to format → page, and the below-looking interface will appear. Increase the page width to 9.50″ also reduce the margins (shown in the picture) to .50″ from the default .79″.
Now go to the “Border” tab shown in the picture. Here I would give a border, specify how I want my border around my pages, and select border color into deep green. Because our color theme is deep green, remember?
I generally don’t want to change the color of my page and keep it white. If you like a specific color, go to the “Background” tab and choose some light shade.
Headers & Footers
Now I insert a header and a footer. In the Header, I place the name of my e-book, i.e., “How to build a responsive mailing list.” Also, I set a line under it. See the picture below:
Okay. Now our page is ready. We need to insert our content. Open the “Responsive List Building Secrets.doc” file in the “Reports” folder.
Now, copy all the text, thereby Edit →Select All →Copy.
And paste it into our new file named “How To Build Responsive List.”
Here, I change the font and font size. I like a font called “Yu Gothic Light” and font size 15 or 16. Perfect for pdf format. But you also need to change the line spacing to 1.5 because the content appears too clumsy in pdf with line spacing 1.
Editing The PLR Content
Now, we have to edit a few things. From the “Edit” drop-down menu, select “Find & Replace”. Replace “Responsive List Building Secrets” with “How To Build Responsive List.” This will replace all the “Responsive List Building Secrets”. And place “How To Build Responsive List” instead of in the Document. Look at the image below.
I don’t edit or rewrite any text. But I change all the contents’ headlines and make a new “table of contents.” Take an example of current and changed headlines:
“The Gadgets You Need”- Resources Needed
“Developing A High Converting Squeeze Page”- Making a Squeeze Page that converts
“Generating Largest Profits” – Max. Profit Generation, etc.
But I like to go through the content at least once to understand what I’m selling. Also, I edit some or add some if it becomes necessary.
Dead Links Of PLR Content
Another important thing is to check all the links in the content. Check whether the links are live and functional. If a link is taking to the error page, we need to replace that link with similar resources. And never misuse an opportunity of inserting your affiliate links if there is a chance.
Well done! We have created a stand-alone e-book by transforming PLR contents. Now export the Document- oh, wait. There is one more thing we must do. We must create a book design with our name and paste at the first page of this Document.
We have created our e-book. We can call it our own. We can put our name on it. But it will not look complete and professional if we don’t make an image of it.
Let’s check the pictures of the original PLR e-book, “Responsive List Building Secrets.” Head over to the “Graphics” folder. These were the images (below) of our PLR package!
Step3- Designing E-cover of the PLR Content
Designing an image is a complete and separate skill but it is not an essential skill. You can always skip it and pay someone (only $5.50) at fiverr.com to design a book cover for you.
But creating images is fun. Because most people enjoy it, that includes me! Here’s a thing to understand, we need Images all the time on our IM journey. So, if you know how to create or edit an image, it will save you a lot of money.
We have to create images like the above for our e-book. But we have to design our cover from scratch with two tools. We need the first tool to develop the flat e-cover and the 2nd tool to make the 3D cover image out of that flat e-cover.
The best tool for design, of course, is PhotoShop. Those who know how to operate the program can design their covers.
A Simple Tool To Design PLR Cover Image
I use a much easier free tool called Paint.net. You can download a copy free from here:
You can get video walk-through tutorials here:
Go through the tutorials and practice on a few images. It should not take more than three days to master the operation. But these three days will save many dollars in the coming days!
Let’s get to the point, how I create my e-book cover? Here is how I do it. Our color theme is the deep green that we have selected earlier. Now I use to head over to Google Images and type “Deep-green background.” Some background images came up, but I didn’t like them for my e-cover. So I searched “Deep green background digital.” Most of the Images here are watermarked, but I managed to choose one without.
So, I loaded the background in my free paint.net software. I made the below images in 5 minutes!
Creating 3d-Ecover for PLR
Now We have to turn this flat image into the 3d book cover. For this, I use a paid software called e-cover authority by Chad Eljisr. But there are free resources as well. Search “Free online e-cover creator” in search engines, and you will get plenty of Resources.
You can design your e-cover within the software with the templates they provide. But generally, I don’t use any templates and create my images myself like above.
Free or paid, principles of creating a 3D e-cover are the same. You load your design file into the software, and the software will take care of converting it to a 3d image. I have designed the image below with “paint.net.” Then I loaded into e-cover authority software, and the software provided the 3D image.
After we got our 3D book cover image, resize it to fit our “How To Build Responsive List” Document. Now copy the image and paste on the first page of the Document.
Our e-book is almost done. Work on the “Table of Contents” and assign the right page numbers to the headlines.
We have a new e-book, imprinted our name on it as the author. Also, we attached a brand-new 3d book-cover image with all the bells & whistles needed.
Step4- Make Money With PLR Content
Now it’s time to make money with our PLR content. We need to place our new e-book in front of as many eyeballs as possible to profit from it. For that, we need a few web pages. Also, we need to upload our e-book to a server so that our clients could download our e-book.
Uploading Your PLR Ebook
First, go ahead and upload your e-book to your website. If your website is: http://xyx.com,
then your download link will be:
I use to upload all my files to the Amazon S3 server. If you want to use that route, you have to make an account there.
Web pages needed
What kind of web page we will need depends on what’s our goal here.
We need to design a sales page and a download page if we want to sell the e-book in the marketplaces. We would place a 3-D picture of the book on the sales page and write some book benefits.
The goal of a sales page is to let the customers know the benefit of our Product! It may be a long sales letter or a brief one, that depends on you! Every time I worked with a PLR, I used the sales page with the least amount of text- let them know what it is, that’s enough!
We would place our e-book 3D picture on the download page with some text thanking them and the download link.
You may want to give away your e-book to build an email list. In that case, you need a Squeeze page instead of a sale page.
You need to announce that this book is available to download free of cost. But they need to subscribe to download. There should be a place to insert email addresses. And that the email address will be in your database as soon as they insert it.
Autoresponders To Capture Subscribers
You need to subscribe to any autoresponder company to manage your subscriber database. Your autoresponder company also supply you with the email capture form code.
I hope you know how auto-responders work. If you don’t, head over to the video to have some basic idea.
Creating Webpages for your PLR content
Designing a web page needs HTML coding knowledge, which is another advanced skill. I learned some basic HTML from free online resources in my initial days. I cannot design a complete web page with that little knowledge. But I can customize an existing web page template. Later, I used web page designing software like Dream Weaver.
But later, I understood it’s a waste of time and energy. Completely needless! Because there are many tools to ease this job.
Now I can design a stunning web page in minutes with few clicks! That gives me significant advantages! Free Word Press plugins gave me that power. I can create stunning looking and functional web pages with a few clicks.
I will be very frank and honest with you. You do not have to learn HTML or any other programming language to create your web pages. It’s not worth it. Use WordPress and some page-creating plugins.
Web Page Creating Tools You can Use
In the past, I used three such plugins. I use “EpicSqueeze” to create my opt-in pages. It comes with complete video tutorials.
Now Epic Squeeze Plugin is a paid plugin. If you don’t want to invest money at present, there are free alternatives too:
You will get ten free plugins that you can work with.
I use two plugins to create my sales pages and download pages, depending on the situation. I use the Instabuilder plugin when I need a simple web page. I use Free GrooveFunnels when I need to design more elaborate and intricate design pages. They work fantastic. So, I recommend the GrooveFunnels and the Instabuilder and I am happy using both.
Squeeze Page Created With Free GrooveFunnels
Well, are there other paid plugin that worth it? Plenty! I used “Optimize Press 2.0,” and it worked well to some extent. Now Optimize Press 3.0 is available and appreciated by many. So is “Lead Pages,” “Thrive Theme,” “Landing Page Monkey,” “ClickFunnels,” and many more…but I haven’t used these. So recommending these will not be ethical for me!
Like I said before, you will get some extra features with a paid plugin. But if you do not want to invest right now, there are plenty of free alternatives!
Now, what to write in sales and download pages? Okay, here are a few simple sales page and download page I use (created with Free GrooveFunnels)
So it’s time to get to the work creating your pages. Install word press on your site, pick a plugin, paid or free. Go through the tutorials. Make a sales page and a download page for your new e-book.
Now check your PLR folder and find a folder named “Website.” You will get three web files called index.html, confirm.html, and thankyou.html. index.html is your sales page, and thankyou.html is your download page. Confirm.html is not required unless you want a double opt-in.
Check these web-pages but don’t use these unless you know HTML and can change the design color etc. But you can use the text of the pages to your new sales and download page.
Now, here’s our current status:
Our E-book: Ready
Sales Page: Ready
Download (Thank you) page: Ready
Creating Payment Buttons For Sales Page
It’s time to plaque fruits of your efforts. If you want to sell it from your website, you have to fix a price between $1- $9. You need to insert a “Buy” button in the product image on your sales page.
You can create a payment button code from your pay pal account. And insert the code in the appropriate place of your sales-letter.
Listing Your PLR In The Affiliate Network
Another way to sell your Product is to list it in the affiliate marketplace like Warrior Plus. There are some advantages of Listing in this kind of marketplace.
You are allowing other members of the platform to sell your Product. Of course, you have to offer a handsome commission (50%-75%) to them. Listing quality products and setting good affiliate commissions for them. These two always encourage affiliates to promote your Product. Affiliates increase product sales by many folds.
Building A List
But the main advantage is you can collect your buyer’s email addresses and build a buyer’s email list. This is the disadvantage of selling your Product using the pay pal buy button. Pay pal doesn’t capture and manage the buyer’s email database for you. I sell my products using warrior plus for this reason. I allow 100% commission to my affiliates, leaving me no money! But the email list I build gives me 20 times more than what I could gain from Product selling itself.
There are a few other advantages of listing in Warrior Plus. You have to do nothing except filling out your listing form. You and your affiliates will get shares of a sale according to your specification.
You need an account at warriorplus.com, which is free. Complete your profile information, including the payment profile.
More Tips On PLR Sales Page
If your PLR package comes with a sales page, you can use its text in your new sales letter. It would be enough for selling at $1-3. But if you want to sell your Product at a higher price ($3-17), you need a more elaborate and convincing sales letter. Some people are a specialist copywriter. And they will charge no less than $200 for a 2000-word-sales-letter.
But you can go ahead and try to write your own sales letter. Go ahead and study some sales-letter in your niche at Warrior Plus. Click on the Product listed here, and it will take you to the affiliate page with a sales page link. https://warriorplus.com/wsopro/affiliate/get-offers.php
It will save you huge money if you master the sales-letter-writing-technique. I wrote 60% of the sales letters of my products. I learned the skill from a handy resource.
Tips On Download (ThankYou page)
Your dl page should contain a picture of your Product, hyperlinked with your download URL. Also, provide a text link mentioning, “Click here to download your “purchase.” These two are essential.
But your purchaser will be visiting your download page anyway! So why not take advantage of it? After you place the download link of your Product, place another offer below that. The chances of success will be great if your Offer relates to your Product. Say your Product is “How To Build Responsive List.” You can find an affiliate offer like “Done For You List Building Funnel” or something similar. You can have a PLR pack on this right here:
So you listed your Product at warrior plus. It is ready to make you a fortune. But don’t wait until you have made your first sale! Create another product and list it. It is more important to establish yourself as the product creator in your niche.
PLR Membership Sites
Okay. I have given only one PLR pack, but I hope you understand already that you need many more. Where do I get all those PLR packs on demand?
I have a membership at a PLR mine called Resell Rights Weekly! You can go ahead and make an account there. Both Free and Paid membership available!
Check all the Free products I have listed (made with PLR contents) and check all the sales each made! I listed as a Free product because I want more downloads than making money here. Warrior-Plus let me list a free product for $0.00 because I have Listed more than 20 paid products that earned them and me good money.
If this is your first listing, you will not have the option of free-product listing. But it is okay. List your Product at $1-3.
$1 products sell well! Later, you will get your chances to list free-products.
So, I have concluded how I make money with PLR contents. I make money selling my products, or I make money with the subscribers that I collect by giving it away. Whichever way of making money you take, you must add value to your transformed Product.
