We’ve been discussing writing PLR in conjunction with “Write, Sell and Use PLR: Content is King”. PLR is a huge field. Few of the writers producing this material display creativity and writing ability, so if you want to get into it, the field’s wide open, and very profitable.
Over the past couple of days, we’ve discussed:
Writing PLR for public holidays and other events. Don’t restrict yourself to the ideas in that article.
Consider what we didn’t cover — movie and book releases which gain lots of publicity and which are released on a certain date (the movie “The Hobbit” is about to be released); and new product launches. Apple is always good value for product launches, and you can write affiliate marketing PLR to go with these launches.
You could base an entire business on writing “local” PLR.
Now let’s discuss affiliate marketing PLR.
Affiliate marketing PLR sells like hotcakes
“Affiliate marketing” basically means selling products on a commission. Amazon and eBay for example, have great affiliate programs, as do many, many other companies. Most of the “reviews” of products you see online are written by affiliate marketers who are hoping for a commission.
Affiliate marketers love content which they can reuse and repurpose to market the products they’re promoting.
Please be creative with all the PLR you develop. As we’ve said, this field is wide open, because few PLR writers display creativity — they don’t think about who is buying their material, and how they can help their buyers to make money.
Let’s look at two ways you can create affiliate marketing PLR which will be snapped up by buyers; these kinds of PLR are a very easy sale.
1. Product overviews
You could write product reviews as PLR. However, to write decent reviews you’d have to buy and use the products. This takes way too much time. I’m not suggesting that you shouldn’t write reviews — just keep the reviews to products you already know and use.
So, how do you write an overview? Basically:
* Choose a product;
* Read the sales material;
* Read any user-reviews the product has won;
* Write your PLR.
You’re really just describing the product. PLR is never “complete” — it’s meant to be edited. Your buyers can use your PLR as-is for autoresponder sequences or newsletters, and can edit it too. What they do with the PLR you write is up to them.
You could choose 20 products from ClickBank, for example, in an area like Health & Fitness (keep all your “packages” of areas to a topic area), and write overviews of them. Affiliate marketers LOVE ClickBank because the commissions are so high.
2. Challenges faced by people who buy products X, Y and Z
Staying with our Health & Fitness PLR you’re writing for ClickBank products. Choose 20 products from an area, and research the audience. What problems do buyers of a weight loss diet program have, for example? They may want to lose weight because a special event is coming up (a wedding), or just to feel better about themselves.
Tip: choose a topic area in which you identify with the audience for the products. If you identify, it’s much easier to write.
When you write about challenges, you’re doing the buyers of your PLR a favor. You’re identifying trigger points which encourage people to buy the product they’re promoting. All they need to do is add their own links and promotional material, and they can start making money.
I created “Write, Sell and Use PLR: Content is King” because creating and using PLR will make money for you… Use the ideas in these articles this week, and add a dash of your own creativity. You’ll have a lot of fun, and you’ll make sales.
