Tips to creating profits online using PLR’s

As the popularity of the web grows so does the interest in making money online at home. Learning how to actually grab your share of that money is extremely important and for many there just is not time to start looking for completely unique solutions.

For the busy individual who is looking for a way to break into online marketing it may be beneficial to start looking for private label rights options. Using Private Label Rights (PLR’s) can help you to get started making money quickly. By modifying the PLR’s to your needs and niche you can quickly and easily turn them into something that is unique and fits your topic and business.

Tips to help you succeed with PLR’s

*Always offer a great value.

It might be possible to charge $30 for a single article or eBook but in today’s economy you are going to need to look to maximize that value.  This can be done putting a few different pieces together and increasing the price a bit.  This is better value to consumers.  Which would you rather buy a single item for $30 or three items for $89.99?  Most people will view the second price as being much cheaper which makes your products a significantly better value. You can also offer a smaller package with an in between price.

* Provide only useful information.

If you are marketing a niche website that targets small backyard design then visitors to your website are not going to be impressed that you have information available that pertains to aerobic conditioning.

For each website that you opt to create you need to have a single niche, and then ensure that the information on the site is relevant to just that niche. If someone cannot tell quickly what you are offering, then you need to start reconsidering your approach.

* Maintain high quality.

If you consistently offer poor quality the search engines will start to ignore you, clients will drop you and customers will disappear. Striving for the highest quality products is critical to ensuring that everyone is satisfied and ready to come back for more.

* Think outside the box.

There are so many different ways you can use private label rights products. You choose to use them yourself, create newsletters or eCourses, offer reports or mini eBooks, eBooks, or create podcasts. You could offer them as freebies to attract traffic or potential buyers or sell them if they have resell rights included.

With all the possible uses for PLR’s you should be able to create a good income.

* Update, update, update!

Change and update what you are offering.  If you offer the same items over and over again, you are going to lose out on repeat business.  If you add new content, software, freebies, websites with valid information, templates, reports or eBooks to your offer, then people will have a very real reason to come back.

Repeat visits is critical to success because repeated business is what you are going to need to increase your overall income.  If you have to search for every customer every time you are going to see lower profits.  If you only need to search for new customers to add you are going to see your profits start to skyrocket.

Following these basis steps will help increase your business and traffic. Even if you have been on the Internet for years you are likely to at some time or another forget even the most basic concepts.

Create your eBook Plan

If you have decided you want to make and distribute an ebook you have to have a plan and set goals to have a successful selling campaign. And if it’s just for friends or as a promotion you still need a plan.

Depending on the size of the project and your technical skills the time and goals may vary. By setting a daily task or journal you can meet your timeline and get that eBook out.

If you pick up an eBook with a rebrander and only make a few changes you can have an eBook out in a few hours. But you should also consider how to distribute the book. Will it have its own website. I highly recommend your own site to promote the book.

Many people have made an eBook and put it online but they don’t have sales. With your own site and traffic you can create a bond with your readers and easily promote the eBook.

Your eBook could be entirely your own work. This type of eBook takes longer and you may fall into the trap of not getting it out as fast as you wanted. (This is experience talking here 😉 ) So a plan is twice as important for you.

With you own eBook you need to assemble the information, have it proofed, have graphics to match the book and a way to sell the finished project.

So to create an ebook plan you need to:

  • Select your ebook topic
  • See if your topic has demand
  • Set up a website or have someone promote your eBook
  • Create a plan for sales set goals for its day of completion and public launch.
  • Have a friend, mentor or look for help online for the areas you need assistance in.

I have an eBook project called Easy Backyard Oasis Projects. This is the site I have set for information on the books, for sales and to help create traffic: Backyard Oasis Projects. And in the next several days I will be launching my eCourse that relates to the book. It’s my hope the eCourse will create interest in my eBooks that relate to creating a backyard oasis easily and at a reasonable price.

This plan will work for any niche.

So my eBook plan so far has been:
1.  Select my eBook topics
2.  Get the books assembled.
3.  Set up my website to promote the eBook
4.  Start to create traffic and a buzz for the book
5.  Set up a form of delivery for the eBook
6.  Work on my sales page. It’s not done yet! So this is my top priority right now.
7.  Promote the eBook with my website and my other relates sites, ezine articles and forums.
8.  And most important for me, ask my friends many questions! They have done these projects before and their advice is invaluable.

NOTE: in the next few days there will be a free mini eBook that will help you with your eBook project.
