Make More Money with PLR

Tapping into the power of private label rights products to build an Internet empire is one of the easiest paths you can take to generating a serious income online. With just an ounce of creativity, you can quickly begin using PLR products to earn you income 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year.

So what are private label rights products?

When you purchase products which come with “private label rights”, it simply means that you are allowed to edit the product in any way, shape or form (including branding it with your name as the creator) and ultimately do with it what you like. You can turn the originals into new products, sell them as your own (and keep 100% of the profits), sell the resell rights to them, change the formatting, repackage them, give them away (depending on the terms of the license), and more.

In a nutshell, PLR gives you the ability to acquire the complete rights to various pre-made products as if you had them created yourself. It’s a huge time saver and an enormous shortcut for those who are smart enough to put forth a little effort and take action.

So, how does that help you, the freelance writer? Well, you have two options.

First, you can purchase PLR products to sell from your website. The possibilities with PLR products are endless. You could purchase several PLR articles on a specific subject and then put them together to form an e-book with you as the author. You could use the PLR articles for your blog, newsletter, e-classes, and the list goes on. Many PLR products come with no restrictions, so what you do with them is completely up to you. What a quick and easy way to build content for your site or products authored by you.

The second option available to you is to write PLR products to sell to others. Many businesses are jumping on board the bandwagon of PLR products, so why not get involved yourself? By offering quality PLR articles, e-books, videos, etc, you'll be able to make a steady income with very little effort. While the "per article" price seems low (usually no more than $1 per 400-600 word article), PLR packages can be sold over and over again. Let's say you have a PLR pack of ten articles that you are selling for $10. If you sell that same pack to 100 different buyers, you make $1,000 on just ten articles. That's $100 per article. The key here is to build a reputation for yourself as having high quality content.

Making Money with Easy-to-Read Articles

When writing articles, make sure to keep your readers in mind. Studies have shown that most Internet readers tend to scan a page to find the information they are looking for, rather than reading the entire page. This means having good titles, a lot of subtitles, and making use of bullet points to help your readers easily scan your page. Readers prefer a site that is easy to use and will be more willing to come back to your site time and time again. The more that your readers return, the more opportunities you will have to get them to click on each of your offers or affiliate links. Failing to write your articles in this manner could turn your site visitors away before they even have a chance to see what you have to say or to learn what your offers and affiliate links are all about. Keeping your articles organized as recommended will keep your visitors returning and enable your site to continue making money for you.

Using a Free Blogging Website

For first time bloggers, a free blogging web site is a great way to get started in the blogosphere. Popular blogging web sites like Blogger and Wordpress allow users to set up and host a blog without paying any fees at all. This encourages people to start blogging. The fact that one of these sites can provide you with all of the tools that you need to get your blog up and running without spending any money means that you have nothing to lose by starting a blog. In fact, it is so easy to find a way to blog for free that many people who have never had any other kind of web presence before find themselves drawn to blogging.

By signing up with a free blogging web site, you may find it easier to get listed in search engines than you would if you were starting your own blog from scratch. For example, Google runs the free blog hosting site blogspot and crawls its pages very often looking for updates, so if you have your site hosted by blogspot you are almost guaranteed to be listed on Google's blog search engine. This easy access to search engines can take some of the work out of promoting your blog, and can help you gain a following with a minimum of marketing effort.

If your blog attracts a large readership, you may want to consider moving your site. Many people feel that being hosted by a free blogging web site gives a blog a kind of amateur flavor that is fine for a new member of the blogosphere, but is not appropriate for a high-profile blog. Having your own domain can help make your blog feel professional, and finding a company that will host your domain is not difficult or expensive. Once your blog takes off, you will probably be able to sell enough advertising space to be able to afford to buy a domain and pay for a hosting package, and still have money left over. However, it does not make sense in most cases to invest in these glossy luxuries before you have a sizable readership.

Starting your blog on a free blogging web site is a great way to build a following before you spend any money on your blog. If and when your blog becomes popular and you are ready to take the next step and purchase your own domain, your readers will follow you to your new home. The fact that it is possible to use a free blog host like Blogger or Wordpress as a kind of incubator for your blog is great news for bloggers everywhere.

Writing in the First Person Point of View

Point of view (POV) is the perspective from which a story is being told. In essence, it is the element that shows us who is telling the story. While there are several different points of view, only a few are widely used. In this article, we will be focusing on the First Person point of view.

The first person POV uses the pronouns “I” or “we.” In a sense, you (the author) become the character who is telling the story. This is becoming a very popular way to tell a story because it brings the reader directly into the mind of your character, and therefore, into the story itself.

If attempting to write in the first person POV, it is imperative that you know your character inside and out. You must act, speak, and think as your character would. Not only that, but you must notice and pay attention to things that your character would. For example, if my husband and I were to walk into a store, my attention would immediately be drawn to the trendy clothing or adorable knick-knacks. My husband, on the other hand, would go directly to the tools or outdoor equipment, hardly noticing the things he passed along the way. Why? Because we have different interests. Our attention is drawn to things we are interested in. So it must be with your character if you are using this point of view.

When using first person POV, since your character is telling the story, that character can only tell what he or she knows. In other words, if your character is in the kitchen, he can't tell you what is going on in the living room unless he can hear or see the action taking place.

For this reason, one of the hardest things to do in the first person POV is to describe your character. If your character can only describe what he sees, unless he is looking in a mirror, personal description is lost. In addition, it is difficult to describe the character's personality without sounding like they're bragging. Fortunately, there are a few ways around this obstacle, and they include:

* Use a mirror (note: this has been overdone)
* Compare the character to another character in the story
* Have another character describe your main character
*Don't describe them – It has recently become acceptable to not describe your POV character at all as long as there is adequate description of the other elements in the story.

The first-person POV is very popular, and so it would be in your best interest to master its usage. Remember, the main key is to know your character and to essentially become that character in the telling of the story.
