When you create an eBook one of the more important beginning steps is to decide where your information is coming from. There are people who will research and write each article and there are others who will use Private Label Right (PLR’s) articles.

If you chose PRL’s its best to add more of your own information and make the articles personal. Or as many say, the article should be in your own voice. If you don’t have original articles the eBook may almost be a copy of someone else’s work and who wants to read old information?
I have used PLR’s as a starting point and usually get two or three finished articles from an original article. By time I am done the article is mine – I just had an idea to get me going.
PLR’s can be found online and through private memberships. I have used information from Blogging Beginners, Mike Steup Daily articles and PLRwholesaler. You can also use or find articles on line or create articles from eHow. And don’t forget google.
Just make sure you do not copy others work and break any copyright rules when using any information online or from an article or book.
After you have your information rounded up and articles ready, it’s time to assemble the ebook.
Plans for setting up an eBook.
Before you get into the technical steps your final decision is: will the eBook be a Private Label Rights eBook where people can change the information you wrote or will it be a Master Reseller’s Rights eBook?
Master Reseller Rights (MRR) means that when someone purchases the eBook they can sell it, but they can make no changes to the content. Bothe MRR eBooks and PLR eBook come with a reseller agreement and terms are listed for their use. And if you have no plans to sell the eBook these agreements are not important to you.
The benefit of a Master resellers right book is that the information cannot be changed and you can add hyperlinks that lead to a website business or item for sale.
My steps in Creating an eBook today were:
- Get some of my eBook material out to be proofed today and get the rest out tomorrow.
- Start looking up graphics for my eBook project
- Pull up sales page information I have stored in my folder and start making the final decisions. (The sales page is another project within itself that needs proper attention.)

You touched on one of the key uses for PLR, at least in my opinion.
PLR works great as inspiration or a guideline. I have purchased PLR products and used them only for the outline. This gives you a list of topics to start with to create your own product. Just doing this can save you hours of research and give you something to start with, including your goal setting.
For example if your topics are each a chapter in an ebook you can set the goal of writing one chapter per day and you will have a end date for the book. By setting a specific goal like this you are going to push yourself to actually complete it instead of saying, “I will do that tomorrow.”
Yes, PLR’s do make a great outline and provide information to build on. And research for a book can take a lot of time.
One chapter a day is a very reasonable goal and making sure you set those goals will help get the project done.
Thanks for stopping by, Denise
