PLR articlesIf you have lots of blogs, you will be aware how difficult it can be to get decent content on them regularly. It can be like spinning plates, rushing from one to the other to make sure that they are getting the content they need. You can hire writers to write regularly for your blogs, but this can be expensive. You can spend the time writing the content yourself but this might be time consuming. You could hate doing it too – and is that what you want to be spending your time doing? No?

Get high quality PLR articles for your niche blogs at: http://plrarticleshome.com

There is a solution to this problem, and it is PLR. Private label rights, or PLR for short, is a type of content that you can put your own name on and claim is yours. PLR content can be anything. It can be articles, audio or video. You can even get PLR software. PLR products give you certain freedoms. You can change it in any way you like,  and claim it as your own.

If you have written PLR, such as products, ebooks, or articles then you can change headings, paragraphs, the title – anything you like. You can add images, change the font, re-write it or even have it re-written. Whatever you do to PLR you can call it your own, and you can sell it (if you have re-written it) or add it to your blogs. PLR articles

How Much Should I Pay For PLR?

PLR is generally cheaper than having your articles written for you. It is roughly 1/5th of the price. For instance, you can get an article written for about $5. This will be a basic article written by an English speaking writer. However,  you can buy a pack of five articles for the same amount. So although it is better to change some things about the PLR  you have, it is much less work than writing an article and cheaper than having one written for you.

What About Duplicate Content?

Lots of people worry about duplicate content. Much has been said about it, and while some well-meaning people give good  advice, I prefer to actually go to the source for my information. The way I find out what Google wants is to ask Google. Google’s spokesperson is a man called Matt Cutts. This is what he said about duplicate content:

“I wouldn’t stress about this unless the content that you have duplicated is spammy or keyword stuffing.”

So, if you have a bit of duplicate content on your blog, this is not going to be a problem. Matt Cutts also said  that a large fraction of the web is duplicate content, and that is not a problem.

Just a word of warning though. If you take a PLR article and spread it to lots of different article directories, then don’t expect Google to take a great deal of notice of it. You won’t get lots of back links. Some people differ on this thought, siting news websites that have very similar news articles all over the net. I would just like to point out that yesterdays newspaper is todays fish and chip wrapper. News articles are spread far and wide but after a short period
of time, no-one wants to read them. They are effectively rubbish.

PLR articles for your blogs: http://plrarticleshome.com

Have you ever sat looking at a blank screen, with not a thought in your head? Then you have experienced writers block. One way to get out of that mindset is to use PLR. Just by reading through some PLR on the subject you will find that ideas come to your head, ideas that you can write about. You might find yourself thinking – I can write better – so you do. You might just get an aha! moment that gets your brain running on the right track. Either way, PLR can be useful for getting you content on your blog.

Maybe you are wondering about the best way to change a PLR article, so you can put it on your blog, knowing that it is at least semi-original. This is one of the best ways I have found to make a PLR article look instantly better and more authoritative.

PLR articles

First of all, change the title. Think of a better, perhaps more relevant title for your article. Next go through the article adding subheadings every couple of paragraphs. Then look for some images that you can use to add to the article, this instantly makes your article more appealing to readers. If you title your images with the keyword you are aiming to rank for, this also makes your article more relevant to Google. Adding three or four images will split up the text and make it more readable for your readers.

If you feel the article isn’t long enough then add a couple of paragraphs or simply comment on the article at the end of
it.

Are you involved in guest blogging? Guest blogging can be a great way to get new readers or back links for your blog. You can use PLR articles for guest blogging, and this can add content to someone elses blog. They will return the favor and give you an article for your blog. It’s all content for your blog!

You don’t need to buy PLR articles if you don’t want to. You can always buy a PLR ebook and split that up into articles. This will clearly take a bit more work, and you would probably have to add introduction paragraphs and conclusions. But it is another way to use PLR to get content on to your blog.

What About Poor Quality PLR?

One of the things people complain about is the poor quality of lots of PLR. Some of it is badly spun rubbish. If you are going to pay for PLR you want to get the best quality you can. One way to do this is to ask around for recommendations.  Another way is to look for samples on the website. You can even email the webmaster and ask for some free PLR. Often  they will send you a pack for free, so that you can see the quality of PLR before you buy it. Generally the cheaper the  PLR, the lower the quality will be.

Here we have looked at some of the ways you can benefit from PLR, particularly in finding content for your blogs. You can  PLR for anything actually, and we will look at different ways to use PLR in further articles. If I have inspired you to  get some PLR for your blogs, then take a look at my website, http://plrarticleshome.com. Get some quality PLR and get feeding content to your blogs. Google will thank you for it!

Hi!

Well, it’s another day of work and another couple of packs uploaded. One health issue – compulsive eating and one clothing/fashion which is on cashmere, mainly sweaters but there is an article on there about cashmere baby blankets. Gorgeously luxurious!

Compulsive eating is a terrible condition, I didn’t know much about it before this research, but these people cannot help but keep eating even though they know in their brain that they are full. I think you can add a really helpful section to a health blog with these articles. With Google keywords I discovered that the monthly search volume for compulsive eating, compulsive eating disorder and binge eating was over 21,ooo. The Ad Words cost was $5.02. So there is definitely some money to be made there, I was quite surprised when I discovered this!

It’s not just about the bottom line though, if you can provide information that helps people then it’s something they will thank you for. You can make these articles into an eBook, and use it to build your list. They are going to be interested in health articles particularly, and weight loss too. So there are definitely things that can be done with these articles.

The other pack are on cashmere. Cashmere costs lots of money! These articles would be really useful if you are an Amazon affiliate, because you can embed your affiliate ID in the articles. Or take a couple together and build a Squidoo lens. Add an Amazon module and you will make some money that way.

Really there are lots of ways to make money with PLR, which is something I have written about myself today, because I built a Squidoo lens myself. It makes for good backlinks for http://plrarticleshome.com and it shows people the versatility of PLR. Good PLR can be the starting blocks for so many different things.  Want to know more? http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-use-plr-articles

Of course there are other ways to use PLR than I have mentioned here. You can use snippets of PLR to tweet interesting facts to your twitter following. You can use the information to join in with forums and do some forum marketing. That is a quick way to get to a desperate crowd, doing some forum marketing.

Another way to use PLR is to put some together to make an eBook and submit them to doc share sites, another way to get backlinks and to get your name out as an authority on the subject.

If you are good at getting stuff to go viral – usually it is controversial  – then you can use PLR to put something together that will do it. Use the PLR to write the information in, and then add the controversy yourself. Add your affiliate links and send it on it’s way. If you supply it with give-away rights, then it can spread the word for you about your niche, and make you some money too.

It is up to you what you do with PLR, and remember PLR isn’t just about articles, you can find audio PLR, video PLR and even software PLR. Don’t limit yourself, consider it all since it can all increase your bottom line!

Ok, I want to write another pack for PLR Articles Home tonight, so I am going to go and get the kids fed. I hope you all have a great day!

Best wishes,

Ruth

I’ve been talking about PLR articles, and my website http://plrarticleshome.com all day long. Well it feels like it, anyway! (It’s nothing to do with going to see Black Sabbath last night, I promise!) Truth be told I am tired, but if I don’t promote this website to anyone and everyone, it just won’t get the traffic.

One thing I have learned is, if you want to get things out there and have people get to know your website, then you have to be visible and get your face known. Not having been blessed with a beautiful face, this is something I have been avoiding for the last, oh, five years or so. But now I have changed. I figure if I have to put up with how I look, so do you all. So I did something I would previously have felt was impossible. I did a live hangout on Google plus. Yes that’s three minutes of me on the web.

Now not only am I not beautiful, I am pretty overweight. It’s something I am working on. So it’s scary, and I think some kind (!) person will come along at some point and tell me that I am F-A-T. Like I don’t know that huh! I didn’t go to bed a size 6 and then wake up overweight did I? But you know, I think it will say more about them, than it does about me.

In internet marketing it seems to me that it is less about what the person looks like and more about the value that they provide. My video is fairly simple, I just try to explain the point of PLR and how it can be useful. This isn’t highly technical stuff. In fact, before I did it I had a few notes but I thought about explaining PLR to my Mum. She is 72 and doesn’t know much about technology. She does have an iPad. She plays Sudoku on it. She talks to my nieces on facetime. But that is pretty much it, so she doesn’t know about internet marketing at all.

But there are some people who don’t know much about internet marketing. One internet marketer I know, who does make a full time living from internet marketing, who didn’t know what PLR is. I explained it to him, on Skype.  It showed me that we know more that we know we know.  On a course recently someone said when we know something, we assume that everyone else does. Wrong. They don’t.

So, it is ok to make videos about something you know a bit about, and explain it to people who don’t. That is my opinion. Since I know a bit about PLR that is what I did my video on. PLR articles, what they are, how to use them, and where to get them. I will stop talking now and show you the video:

So after much deliberation I have launched my PLR store, PLRArticleshome.com. It has taken lots of work and planning, and not a little help from folk on my new favourite facebook group, Perking Up Profits, run by Barbara Ling.

You can go there from this link – http://plrarticleshome.com and the PLR is written in US English, while this blog might not be. It’s great PLR that I put huge amounts of effort into, and at the moment it is priced low, although the prices will go up soon. Probably in January I would have thought. So get it cheap while you can.

There will be new packs every week, so please feel free to keep coming back. If you want to be notified of when new packs become available then please add your name to the “first to know” list, using the form on the front page. You can also use the form to let me know what subjects you would like me to write about.

If you want to know more about the store then please do get in contact. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Ruth

Regular readers will know about my struggle with technology. I am a 45 year old Mom of three, and I am not technically minded at all. I don’t mind having a go at things, but I really don’t understand exactly how things work in the world of html and website building.

I quite often rely on YouTube for videos explaining how to do things, so when I bought the download software (DLguard) for my PLR store, I thought that there would be a video on YouTube for me to work out how to set it all up.

WRONG! I have been struggling with it for ages, trying to set it all up correctly. It is supposed to have the software on the front, and wordpress on the back. It ended up with me giving up and getting a 500 error. Just a load of old files hanging on a domain with nothing to show for it.

The guy who wrote the software, Sam, has been an absolute star helping me. We have been messaging back and forth and now the website is looking much better than it did. It is amazing how much a little guidance can do.

I also needed a little help from hostgator who were brilliant as always. I am amazed at how courteous they are, even when (in this case) the mistake was mine!

So, there are just a few little things that I have to change, not too much at all, and then I will be able to announce the site. Just to let you know that I haven’t forgotten and I am still working on it.

Another thing I am still working are my Squidoo lenses. I have joined Jenn Dize 100 lens challenge. I am not aiming for 100 by the 1st March, but I am aiming for 60. I am on number 8 or 9, so I need to keep the pace up to finish my 60 for March 1st.

Jenn is really great at putting people at ease, and it is good to chat about what we are doing and being able to help people who need it. If you want to join the challenge then you can join on Jenns blog which is http://workathomeformoms.net/case-studies/join-100-lens-challenge/. I look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,

Hi!

Well, now I have over seventy Squidoo lenses, I have been working at it for over six months now. Not all the time; when I wasn’t making any money at it I went off it for a while, and didn’t bother making lenses all the time.

Six months has to be the turning point for so many projects. It has taken me six months but now I make money every week with Squidoo. At first I just thought it was about Christmas time; it is much easier to make some money then. But no, through January I have been making sales. Not every day, but definitely a few per week.

Seventy lenses is not that many, and I have to say it is the top seven or eight lenses that make the money, which leaves plenty that are not making money just yet.

Many people will think that is a bit of a waste of time, all those that haven’t made a dime yet. But many of them are in niches that are seasonal. For instance, pop up tents are not really for this time of year – I have only sold one of them. But when the better weather gets here, I am confident that I will sell some more.

I had a bit of a life changing moment a couple of weeks ago. I spoke with Craig Desorcy on Skype, and got some business advice. I did think what can he say in 30 minutes that is going to help me – and I was so surprised that he did.

So, after having the domain for a very long time, I have decided to get my PLR store up and running. It is still in the early stages right now and is not properly ready to get going. So I will not give you the URL just yet. But, it is developing steadily and I hope to have an announcement about it very soon.

I hope everything is going well with your businesses too.

Best wishes,

Ruth

I have noticed that there seem to be more and more WSO  (warrior special offers) on squidoo lenses these days.  I personally used to use squidoo but when it changed and lots of my lenses got removed, I got ticked off and stopped using it.

However, I have read a recent WSO and it was talking about squidoo lenses. I thought I would give it a go, not least because this warrior said that ten squidoo lenses should earn you approximately $50 per day if you build them his way.

So far I have built six Squidoo lenses and I am pretty happy with them all. My only issue is that they are simply not getting picked up by the big G for love nor money.

I have backlinked them, with a variety of different types of links, and still nothing. So I Googled the issue and sure enough I got some rather old information from Pot Pie Girl. (For those of you who don’t know, Pot Pie Girl wrote a squidoo product about ooooooooooh 2009 ish? and has made many successful lenses that made a lot of money.)

Anyway, she recommends not adding your squidoo lens information within squidoo until it is indexed by Google. One of the ways she suggests getting your Squidoo lens indexed is by blogging about it on a platform away from Squidoo.

While this does go contrary to the advice from the WSO I bought, I am going to give it a whirl and see if I can get my lenses indexed any quicker.

If you are having the same problems with your Squidoo lenses, or you know a secret quick way to get them indexed then please let me know!

Best wishes,

Ruth

Do you know what an AR Mod is? Nope, me either. Well I know it can help me build a really good website in a short space of time. That I do like.

My new site is at http://yourfitnessdvd.com

I made the header -  I like it. I chopped the sidebar down so it was all about the pages and what people like to look at.

The bottom line though is, will it make money? Well it is as yet untested. This is where my dilema starts. I really do like this website but I originally made it to sell. It is a case of, the more I do with it, the more I like it, the less I want to sell it.

I have had a go at selling websites before, but I always felt that it took too long for me to actually let them go in my head. Yes, I would go and check up on them, see what they buyer did with them. Often, I didn’t like what they did.

So, that put me off selling them really. Plus I wasn’t getting the kind of cash for them that I wanted.

But this website didn’t take me long to put up, with the help of this plugin the content was easy to produce. The header was probably the fiddliest.

It is nearly eleven at night now and I think I am going to sleep on it. See how I feel in the morning.  With a clear head I will be better able to decide I think.

More tomorrow!

 

Ruth

 

I just wanted to add this, this morning. I am definitely going to sell this website, I need the cash for other projects and I think it will sell well. It has loads going for it, I don’t know if I have ever optimized a site so well, the load time is 0.99 seconds, its on an aged domain, the writing that I have done is original…..let’s see if it sells. If it doesn’t though, I am going to keep it for sure. People are only going to get one shot at buying this one!

I will update when it is up on flippa!

Are you beautiful? Are you drop-dead gorgeous? Most of us, by definition, are not beautiful, because beautiful is, by it’s very nature, a rarity.

And you and I both know that we feel better when we experience something beautiful. That’s why beautiful models are used to sell everything, from double glazing to aftershave.

We are more likely to buy something from a salesman who is better looking than their counterparts. Beauty is important to every single human being on the earth today. So what is that to do with internet marketing?

Two things. Firstly, we must have websites that look good. Not just look good, that look trustworthy. In the infamous Panda update, Google started to look at websites more closely, looking at them in a more human type way.

Websites are considered for their trustworthiness. Questions were put to people, lay people, about whether or not they would trust websites with their credit card information. This was one of many questions that these folk were asked to consider and then Google added this criteria to an already complicated algorithm.  This is the algorithm that is used to rank our websites.

So, the better our websites look, the more likely they are to be ranked higher in the search engines, and the higher in the search engines the more traffic we get. And of course, the more traffic we get, the more sales we get, the more money we make.

The second thing is, the more attractive our websites are, the more likely people are to stop and look at them. People will spend more time at our beautiful websites. This is also something that Google notices, and Google likes it when people linger on our sites. Google rewards us with higher rankings for this as well.

Well-known marketer Andy Fletcher, who has an extremely successful six figure internet marketing business, was saying something along these lines in his new eBook, called Digi Marketing Jedi:

“When you visit someone’s website, your mind is made up in a matter of seconds. Make sure your website has some va-­‐va-­‐voom and invest in some
custom design. The better it looks, the more authoritative your first impression will be…and the more authoritative it is, the more receptive your traffic will be to your offer.”

This was what was on my mind when I saw some website themes advertised recently. They are definitely some really lovely themes:

beautiful theme 2

 

You can see that will do just about everything you need. These themes normally cost about $45 each, but they are on offer at the moment, and I was lucky enough to get the three themes you see there for an amazing $9.98.

I am not normally a theme hound but this year I am concentrating on building some good Amazon websites so I wanted to get some great themes to use. I know I need to improve my bounce times (the length of time people spend on my websites) and I thought these might just do the trick. I think they would do well with adsense too.

I have been told that the price is going to go up soon, although I have no idea when that will be. I know that they are really popular, though, so I guess when the product creator, Neeraga, feels like he has given out enough at this ridiculously low price, he will raise it again.

If you would like to go and check it out, you can do so here:

3 inkthemes Premium WP themes for less than the price of one!

Hopefully you will be able to get in quick, like loads of us have.

Best wishes,

Make Money Online Fast! That is what so many people want. People are turning to the internet to earn money, and because they are desperate, they spend what little money they have on products that the owners know will take a long time to make money, if ever they will at all.

This article is about types of internet marketing and the time period it takes to make money.  We all want to know how to make money fast, so this is how to make money, and how quickly it is possible to do so.

Service Provider

One of the quickest ways to make money online is to be a service provider. Can you do programming? Build a website? Write great articles? There is demand for all these skills.

If you can programme then you might find something you can do at elance.com. Elance.com is great because the person requiring a service has to put the money that you, the programmer, would be paid forward first. It is held by a company called Escrow.com, who “hold” the payment until the job is completed satisfactorily. This protects both the customer and the programmer.  You will earn the payment when the job is completed.

If you can build a website then you might be tempted to go and have a look at flippa.com. Many people sell websites on flippa.com, and make good money at it too. I have personally sold a couple of websites on flippa, and if you are good at design then you may be able to make some fast cash there. The quickest auction period is, I believe, three days. So if you do have a website to sell then, even if it is only making a small amount of money, then you can earn some cash selling it on flippa.

A website that is brand new? While lots of people do sell brand new websites on flippa, I have noticed that they put a great many sites up for sale, and only sell a small percentage of them for any great profit. For instance, if you put up ten sites for sale, and make $200 on two of them, it doesn’t matter if you make a ten dollar loss on the other eight; you are still up $120.

Flippa fees are $19, and it costs roughly $10 to buy a domain. So in order to sell on flippa.com you first need to fork out $29.  If you sell it for $5 – and I have seen sites sold at that price quite often- you may need to pay the sellers fee which is $5. (Sellers quite often absorb the cost of the fees but not always.)

One way which I have used to make money when I needed it is to go to iwriter.com. Iwriter.com is great because you make money writing.

However, at first you will only make a small amount of money. The better money comes when you have done your first 20 articles, and depending on your skills you will be ranked as either a standard writer, a premium writer, or a elite writer. This very much depends on the ratings that you get from customers. The higher you are ranked, the more offers of articles you can choose from, and the higher the value of the articles available.

For instance, if you are a standard writer, you can earn just $2.43 for 500 words. A premium writer could earn $4.07 for 500 words. An elite writer could earn $8.10 for 500 words. There are lots of different size articles, and different amounts available.

One of the good things about iwriter is that you do not have to bid for the articles. The articles are available and you can just pick the subjects you want to write about.  On elance.com you need to bid for the chance to write articles, and of course, sometimes you are not picked. Using a free account on elance.com you get 15 credits per month and putting forward a bid costs 1 or 2 credits. So to earn a huge amount of money you need to buy more credits.

These are just a few ways to make money online fast. I will leave you with this inspirational video which I enjoyed.
