Hush… I’m going to share a PLR content secret with you. I’ve only shared this with a few people. This PLR content-creation method can make a lot of money for you. One of my students claims that it’s been worth $3,000 a month to him. He’s just starting out with PLR, I’ve no doubt it will be worth much more as he builds up his content inventory.
Here’s the idea…
PLR concepts and ideas from magazines
I love magazines, because for around 15 years, before I got into Web writing, writing for magazines was my primary source of income.
So here’s what I know about magazines: mass market magazines spend hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on research. Multi-national companies spend big on full-page ads in major magazines, and they spend millions of dollars on research and development.
You can tap into all that market research to write your Private Label Rights content.
Let’s see how this works.
I’ve just had a major clear out, so I’ve recycled my huge stash of magazines… Vogue is one of my favorite magazines for market research, and I’ve tossed all the copies I have. Not to worry, any magazine will do for this. Let’s see what we have…
By the way, check out Magazines.com and each magazine’s website, if you want to study a magazine you don’t have to hand.
OK, from the back of my desk, here’s a magazine which I haven’t read. It’s the latest issue of Australian Yoga Journal. It will do for our purposes.
Study the magazine — make lists
We’re interested in the advertising in the magazines we study, because advertisers spend money. Any time anyone spends money on advertising, you know that YOU can make money too.
Here’s three full-page ads in the first section of the magazine:
* An ad for a resort in Broome, Western Australia.
Very nice. There’s money in travel PLR. Travel websites, small and large, make money, so if writing travel articles appeals to you, go for it.
* An ad for software which runs yoga centers.
Who knew there was specific software for that? I certainly didn’t. It’s worth exploring this concept — software to run small businesses. If it turns out that any of these software developers run affiliate programs for their software, you can write PLR for it, and you’ll sell it. (When you help others to make money, you make money.)
* An ad for sustainable tinned tuna.
This is another “who knew?” situation. Food PLR sells, of course. However, what about some PLR content about sustainable food? You could do a little research, and write content which “green” websites and companies would buy all day long.
When you’re studying magazines for PLR concepts, consider:
* Who is an advertisement aimed at?
* What’s the demographic’s income level?
* What are their aspirations?
* What do they spend money on?
Always think about the audience for your PLR. Initially of course, your audience is PLR buyers — then consider the audience for whom they’re buying your PLR.
Using magazines to find PLR content ideas and concepts means that you’ll never run out of things to write about, and also that you’ll never run out of buyers for your PLR.
Check out this list below if you missed any of this week’s articles on PLR.

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.
Check out any articles you’ve missed below. One point — save these articles. This material isn’t covered in the PLR training.
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.
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.
