And much more!
Regardless what you’re interested in, there’s bound to be
private label content available in that market or niche. In fact, chances are, you can even find high quality
private label content in some of the most obscure markets online!
The Private Label Goldmine ebook will show
you exactly how you can exploit the power of private label to build your very own profitable online business,
plus we’ll reveal the exact formula we use to maximize the value of your PLR content so that you can purchase a
single package of content once, and re-purpose it in a variety of different ways, making you more money from the
Let’s get started!
Before you start using PLR content, it’s
extremely important to make sure you understand the license terms that apply to private label content. You
certainly don’t want to risk any legal troubles that could eat up your profits.
Some of the things you need to pay
attention to in a PLR license include:
Whether or not you can edit the content (usually you can,
otherwise the content is known as resale rights)
Whether you have the right to claim you wrote the
How the content can be used (sometimes it can be broken up,
sometimes not, and sometimes it can be sold in certain ways and not others)
You may also want to pay attention to
whether or not the seller has set a minimimum price. Some sellers request you sell a product for a certain
amount. While this can’t typically be enforced legally, it’s best if you follow the seller’s wishes.
Not all private label releases offer the
same licensing rights, and it's important that you always confirm what rights you have, and exactly what you can
and cannot do with the material, prior to distributing it yourself.
For example, there are many different
variations of private label licensing, including:
ü Personal (non transferable) Private Label
ü Transferable Private Label
ü Unrestricted Private Label
Certain private label developers will allow
buyers to give away the private label content as long as it's contained within a paid membership site, while
others prevent the buyer from giving it away at all and must be sold.
You need to be clear on the terms that are
in place, so that you eliminate any risks of violating the terms of service attached to your
To start, you should always try to avoid
unrestricted private label packages. With these PLR releases, there is no limit in place preventing an
unlimited number of people from selling or distributing, but in addition, most unrestricted private label
content can be given away for free.
Consider the obstacle of trying to sell
content that is being mass distributed throughout your niche at absolutely no cost. Why would people purchase it
from you when they could easily download the information from a different source at no cost?
The highest quality private label will come
with limited licenses being made available, and what you want to do is try to do is find a developer releasing
fewer than 100 copies. Furthermore, you want to make sure that the content can be sold but cannot be given
away unless it's being included in a paid membership site.
That way, not only do you not have to worry
about the content being distributed for free, but you also know that you are only one of a small group of people
who will ever be able to sell it at all.
When it comes to your licensing rights, you
want to purchase PLR content that allows you to:
Sell It (with personal rights only, non transferable)
With these licensing rights, you will be
able to sell personal rights to the completed product, but will not be able to sell the content with private
label rights. This is exactly what you want because you are not interested in giving your customers the
right to pass on the material to other people, but instead, they are purchasing a copy of a finished product for
personal use only.
Most private label content (in fact, the
majority of it) allows you to modify and edit the content however you wish, including using portions of the
content in other info product developments.
Here is where combining private label
material can be an exceptionally easy way of creating your very own 'exclusive' release.
What you would do is purchase 3-4 PLR
ebooks on your chosen topic. You would then go through each book extracting the best information from each
one. This could end up being nearly the entire document, or only a few chapters.
You would then combine the entire
collection of content into one extensive ebook, available exclusively to your customers. It's unlikely
that any other competitor will create the same collection as you are, giving you the opportunity to create your
own polished product.
This also allows you to create lengthier
ebooks on your topic in the event that you find it difficult to locate a single ebook covering the subject in
Just make sure that when you combine
content from multiple ebook sources, that you read through each chapter carefully, so that you can weave the
content together ensuring that it flows smoothly and will be easy for the reader to understand, and
Choose Your Own Price Point
Many private label developers set a fixed
price on what they believe their PLR product should be sold for. This is to protect the integrity of the product
and to ensure that it retains its value.
You want to make sure you are given
flexible rights with your PLR license so that you can set your own price on your product, not being restricted
to specific price limits.
If you are concerned about your license
rights, make sure you contact the developer directly with your questions. In many cases, they will also be open
to negotiating more flexible licensing rights, for an additional cost.
Sell It As Your Own (under your name)
Try not to get confused between Master
Resale Rights and Private Label Rights. With Master Resale Rights (known as MRR), you are rarely permitted to
change the content at all, and are not able to sell it under your own name.
In fact, the primary purpose of MMR content
is to provide you with a completed product to sell, without having to do any modifications or improvements to
However, the downside to using Master
Resale Rights material is that you are promoting someone else's brand. Since you can't change the content,
or add your name into the material, (unless it's sold as re-brandable content), you will be potentially
funneling your customers to the developer.
Think of this way: With private label
content you are protecting your source of content from prying eyes and competitors who want to know where you
get your material from.
With Master Resale Rights, your source is
visible, and while you can sell the product, keeping 100% of the profits, you will find it very difficult to
build your own brand.
Using PLR To
Create High Ticket Info Products
Consider the possibilities if you knew
exactly how to take existing content and transform it into a brand new info product that you could sell as your
own without ever having to lift a finger in developing anything yourself.
This is exactly how thousands of online entrepreneurs penetrate new markets without ever having to invest a lot of
time and money into creating their own products from the ground floor up. They simply take existing material,
rework it so that it’s essentially a fresh new product and sell it for 100% profits.
But it gets even
better: you can build an entire network
around private label material just by tapping into the highest quality sources online and spending a bit of time
revamping the material so that it represents your own brand and professional style.
There is no shortage of exceptional quality
private label material online that you can use to develop your very own info products, and even if you have
never worked with PLR content before, you will be pleasantly surprised at just how incredibly simple the process
To begin, regardless of your niche, there is bound to be private label material readily available. From acne to
eliminating love handles, there are articles, reports and raw material to work with.
One thing to keep in mind however is that
when using private label content to create your own info product, you need to spend some time tweaking the
It’s never a good idea to use PLR content
in its original form, because despite the quality, it can still be improved by simply going over the material,
eliminating unnecessary information, and of course, injecting your own personal style and brand into the
You also want to modify the content so that
it is not identical to what other people are selling. You’d be surprised at just how many people fail to make
simple changes that would improve PLR content, and by spending just a bit of time making the info product your
own, you will be able to use existing material to develop a brand new release.
To help you get started, here is a
check-list of things you should do when using private label content to create your own info
Review The Material
If you are planning on using a private
label based ebook, make sure that you read over the content yourself so that you can get a feel for the overall
quality, as well as the flow of the material. Don’t assume that the material is of high quality and can be
used ‘as is’, without personally reviewing the entire document.
If you are going to give the content your
personal stamp of approval, and feature it as your own info product, you want to make absolutely certain that
the info-product represents your brand in a positive way.
After all, you are going to make money
selling this product and you want to minimize the number of refund requests, as well as be able to begin
developing an online presence as someone who is a reliable source for quality information.
Many types of PLR content must be edited
before you use it. Sometimes the license requires this, but even when it doesn’t, you should edit PLR
There are several reasons you should edit
PLR articles used on the web will be considered duplicate
content and may not rank well (or at all)
Books and video content will not be worth as much if they are
If people buy something from you and have already seen it
elsewhere, they will be likely to ask for a refund
If you submit PLR content to certain places, you may get
You won’t be able to edit videos very much,
but it’s very important to make changes to articles before you use them online, and you should also consider
changing eBook content before selling it.
This is very important, especially if you
want the shield the fact that your info product was originally private label material. Consider what
titles you could use that would attract attention.
Example: Rather than "Complete Guide
To Cake Decorating", consider "Industry Trade Secrets To Cake Decorating".
Remember, the title of your product will
appear on the graphics that you use to represent it on your sales page as well as within advertising
Change The Table
The first thing I do after reviewing a
potential private label product that I am going to rebrand as my own is to change the table of contents
We want to avoid changing the actual
structure of the table of contents, otherwise the content might not make sense or flow properly, however by
simply changing the titles of every chapter within the info product, we can eliminate the chance that someone
will identify our info product as originating from PLR.
In an example, the first box below
showcases the original table of contents from a o revise for my own info product:
Just by spending a few minutes rewriting
the Chapter titles for my ebook will help make the ebook more difficult to identify as private label
All I've done is go through each chapter
quickly and assign a new title that applies to the information. I have not yet made any structural changes to
the content itself, only the chapter titles.
This step takes a bit more time, but it's
an essential part of re-branding private label content into your own information product. While you don't
have to rewrite the entire document, you should spend some time re-phrasing and in some cases, better explaining
Depending on the quality of the private
label content that you are using, only slight editing may be required, and if you are unable to do this
yourself, you can easily outsource the work to a freelance writer for a nominal fee.
However, if the quality of your material
doesn't require a lot of improvement, you should still modify the content just enough so that it represents your
brand and style.
ü For example, when you read through the material does it sound like
something you would write?
ü Could you explain it in your own words better or more clearly than
the author did?
ü What could you add into the document to expand on the information
so that the reader better understands the topic?
Your style is going to be different from
anothers, and it's important that you incorporate your own voice and phrasing into the ebook
You want people to become familiar with
you, your brand and ultimately your message. Another writer's method and style will not necessarily
reflect your own, and you should take the time to blend in your own voice into any existing content you decide
You'd be surprised just how much of a
difference this will make in helping you grow your own brand and become an authority by customers being able to
instantly recognize your style in future ebooks.
There are always improvements that you can
make so that the info product becomes more aligned with your personal style. You want people to see
consistency in your work and in every info product that you release, and one way of making sure this happens is
by always proofing and editing every PLR document you use.
Add Your Finishing
When it comes to finishing the info product
so that it's ready for distribution, you want to be sure to add your name, and website URL to the product. You
should also edit the header and footer of the document so that it includes your Products new title.
You should also consider hiring an
experienced graphic designer to create ecover graphics to represent your product and give it a higher perceived
value. These designs can create a simple ecover (that looks like a regular book), or an entire mini-site
design for your website. I have included my top ten resources in the closing chapter of this guide.
Take a final run over the document, and
give it your stamp of approval!
You want to make sure that you change any
affiliate links contained within the ebook to your own links. Most PLR developers will not include affiliate
links in their content, however make sure to go through the material before you begin selling it just to make
