We’ve been running a series on PLR, in conjunction with the release of Write, Sell and Use PLR: Content is King. Scroll down to read any articles you’ve missed.
Today, let’s talk about one of my favorite PLR-creation strategies: news-based PLR.
What’s “news-based PLR”?
Everyone loves to hear about the latest and greatest; I’m a news junkie, so I check out sites like Google News, and the Drudge Report daily.
Many writers check out the news for content ideas, but few use the news as a source of ideas for PLR creation. I find lots of content ideas in business, tech, and health news. They’re my favorite topics. You may be interested in sports and celebrity news. Choose any areas which you enjoy, and which you can write about, and then watch these areas for news stories.
Here’s how it works. Let’s look at how you might scout Google News for tech news.
In the image above, you can see today’s Google News, with part of the Technology section.
Immediately, I can see that there are some excellent ideas for PLR content:
* Microsoft Surface, the new Windows tablet — you could write an entire package on the Surface alone. It’s new, it’s hot, you’ll get buyers;
* Apple has released a new version of iTunes — Anything Apple is hot. Create some PLR about iTunes, and other popular apps;
* Nintendo Wii U — another hot topic for PLR.
Millions of websites need content, not only for their sites, but also for mailings to their customers. There are hundreds of thousands of affiliate marketers too, who need content.
Can you see that once you use the NEWS as a source of PLR content ideas, not only will you never run out of topics, but you’ll also never run out of buyers?
Google Alerts — free and powerful as a source of PLR content ideas
I love Google News; I also love Google Alerts.
Google Alerts allows you to not only monitor the news for interesting PLR content ideas, you can also get an alert when anything new is published on the Web.
You can monitor anything you choose with Google Alerts, and the information will arrive in your Inbox on any schedule you set.
Tip: aim to create evergreen content
There’s one big hassle with creating PLR from news sources: your PLR can get stale fast.
Therefore, when you’re using news sources for ideas, think evergreen. Evergreen content is content which is as useful next year, as it is today. You won’t always manage to keep your PLR news-sourced content evergreen, of course. iTune will only release iTunes 11 once, after all… Then comes iTunes 12, etc.
However, if you keep the “evergreen” thought uppermost, you can create PLR content which can be used for years.
PLR-content ideas you can use to make money today
This week we’ve given you lots of ideas on how to write and sell top-selling PLR in conjunction with the release of Write, Sell and Use PLR: Content is King.

I’m hugely excited about the wonderful new Web writing opportunities for us all in 2013. One such opportunity is PLR (Private Label Rights) content.
Although PLR has been popular for a decade, it’s been given a kick along by the demand for CONTENT, and more content.
Interested in writing Private Label Rights (PLR) content? There’s a huge demand for content, so this week, let’s look at various ways in which you can write PLR for hungry buyers.
When it comes to Private Label Rights (PLR) content (content that you sell to which the buyer buys all rights), most writers stick to the tried and true. They choose topics like pets, health, self-help, social media, etc.
These topics are hugely popular. This means that there’s competition; you’ll need to advertise your own PLR heavily so that you can stand out, and get attention and sales.
Affiliate marketers love content which they can reuse and repurpose to market the products they’re promoting.
