PLR – Pros and Cons

If you’ve been around Internet marketing a bit, you know that PLR stands for private label rights. That usually means you can buy these articles for a song and call them your own. I’d like to take that a little further for you and list out some of the pros and cons of private label rights, plus give you some help with the cons. :)


Using PLR articles is a quick way to add content to your niche site(s). No more time-consuming research.

You don’t have to write articles from scratch, which is a big plus if you’re not confident of your writing skills.

These articles are A LOT cheaper than hiring a ghostwriter and you don’t have to be at the mercy of the ghostwriter’s busy schedule. You can grab these articles immediately.

There are so many ways you can use PLR, and not just as content on your site. Create an ecourse, offer as a report to collect email addresses, use for your newsletter or paid niche membership site, create a PowerPoint presentation around, record as a podcast and much more.


You don’t know where to find PLR.

I can certainly recommend my favorite writers if you’d like, and you can also check at the Warrior Forum and see who people are talking about. The question comes up quite often and other marketers give their feedback.

You’ve gotten some poorly-written PLR in the past and you don’t want to make that mistake again.

I’d recommend you stay away from anything that says 100,000 free articles (or even 900 free articles) because they have a bad reputation for being, well, crap. Again it comes down to buying from reputable writers. Get on their lists so you can be notified when they’ve written fresh new PLR.

Other people have the same PLR articles you do.

It’s true you’ll get the maximum benefit out of using PLR articles if you rewrite them. If you feel you need a little help with how to rewrite quickly, easily, and with confidence, then consider this wonderful resource – How To Rewrite PLR by Peggy Baron, a successful PLR writer, will take you by the hand and show you ways to rewrite your articles and she makes sure you cover all the bases to make them work for you.

There really are way more pros than cons to using PLR, and the cons can be fixed. So go get yourself some quality PLR and get busy wringing every bit of success from them.
