Why Monthly PLR?
Most of the time, people are afraid of monthly commitments, that is why they are afraid to join monthly PLR sites.
That is NOT the right way to think!
The advantages of joining a monthly PLR membership site are as follows:
It can be a lot cheaper compared to buying from other sources because monthly subscriptions are usually a lot cheaper than one time purchases.
You get consistent content every month!
You get to monetize the LATEST, hottest, new niches! With new monthly content, you can be sure you will not be using OLD, outdated content.
You get to create multiple streams of incomes when you really push yourselves to work hard every month.
You get the privileges of exclusivity. Because monthly content are not easily available to the public, you do not compete with tons of other Internet marketers (or niche marketers) that are recycling the SAME, overused content over and over again! The only people you are ‘competing’ against are the people who has membership access and there is usually a membership cap to a PLR membership site.
You also get to enjoy first mover’s advantage! You will know exactly when the content will be released and you can start loading up the content on your sites as quickly as possible. After all, the early bird get’s the word, right?
Now that we are very clear why PLR memberships are one of the best investments one can make, we will have to choose the right membership site!
The next section will show you how to choose the ‘best’ one.
How to Choose A Good Monthly PLR Site
Let’s be realistic here…
Not all PLR membership sites are created equally – some of their content is just BAD, while others are produced with premium quality!
Therefore, it is very important that you check out the credibility of the founders of the PLR site.
Make sure they have:
- A proven track record
- Are capable of producing EXCELLENT content (After all, content is king)
- Are backed by SOLID testimonials.
Once you know WHO to buy from, you must take a look at the list of content they are providing – whether they are suitable for your needs, whether it is too pricey, or whether you will be able to monetize it.
You have to be sure as well if the niches you are focusing on are targeted, generic or too competitive.
Here is a list of criteria that will assist you in your search:
TOP Quality content – It is the most important criteria of them all! (If you want to check out the quality of past issues, you can do a search on Google to see if anyone published the content on their website – this is a useful way to gauge the quality of the site without investing in it).
Powerful graphics – If they are provided, you can greatly increase your conversion rates. And also, do they provide Photoshop PSD files that you can use to edit and rebrand?
Monetization methods they cater for – Do the content allow you to monetize many ways such as Google AdSense, Amazon affiliate, Clickbank, Chitika, Commission Junction or even publishing your own E-book?
Does it provide high converting sales letters and opt-in pages to capture leads for your mailing list? This is very important because you want everything to be set up for you!
Does it provide good quality audio and video products?
How to Utilize PLR E-books
E-books are very important. Most PLR sites provide E-books as the bread and butter of the entire business model.
Here are some of the best strategies on how to utilize PLR E-books:
Put your name on the products as the author – This is the most obvious benefit of them all. Private Label Rights allow you to claim authorship to the E-book and you can use it to build your name/brand or sell it.
Edit the contents – You can change the titles, edit the product contents, insert your affiliate links, and/or paste your own advertisements into the products. These are just some ways to monetize in addition to the profits you are making from selling the E-book.
You can take the content in the book and arrange them into your very own articles (more about monetizing articles in the subsequent chapters).
On the other hand, you can also take a few PLR E-books and combine them together to create one HUGE mega E-book and sell them for profits.
You can shorten the E-book by taking out the key points and turn it into a special report that you can use either as a teaser to get people to buy your E-book or you can use it to capture leads.
Depending on the terms and conditions, you can use this book and give it away as a bonus to products you are already selling.
You can also offer additional rights to your E-book that will enhance the perceive value (e.g. basic resell rights, master resell rights or even re-branding rights).
These are just some examples that you can use to monetize E-books because you can use your imagination to come up with additional ideas how to market yourself with PLR E-books.
How to Utilize PLR Sales Letters And Landing Pages

You can use a ‘Johnson Box’ to get the reader’s attention and do the following:

Recruit affiliates for programs that pay on two-tiers.

Once again, keep people within your lists. This is a good way to see if they are ‘active’ members or not because people tend to forget who you are if you do not keep in touch with them. If they unsubscribe from your list as a result of you sending them E-mails from your E-zine, then it is a good sign as well because you will want to know WHO is reading your E-zines and who isn’t!
