Review: Private Label Rights

This review is sponsored by PLR.me

Remember when you were in school, and you had a term paper assigned to you? Imagine being able to log into a website, search through dozens of expert articles, pick the one you want and write your name on it. Sounds great in theory, but, you would be cheating both your teacher, and yourself out of an education.

Imagine the same principle applied to physical products, such as cranberry juice. Do you think that the Walmart brand cranberry juice is actually made by Walmart? The answer is no. They went to a cranberry juice manufacturer, bought the rights to the juice, and had it shipped over with their own label on it.

This principle is known as Private Label Rights, and while it might not have been ethical for your assignments, it’s the standard way of operating in business. The experts create content, perhaps even better than you could yourself, and it’s yours without time commitment and at 1/40th of the price.

If you’re a coach, public speaker, author, or business owner who puts on workshops and seminars, then you probably know that creating fresh content every day is a very time consuming thing therefore expensive thing.

PLR.me provides you with Private Label Rights content that you can start using right away. The content is updated every month, meaning you get a full new set of unique content to display monthly.

Private Label Rights Video

This is a really fun little video that explains what PLR is. It uses a really funny example of how Walmart gets all those “Walmart brand” products without making a single one of them.

Ronnie Nijmeh, the expert author and owner of the Quality PLR content at PLR.me gave me a free members pass for the purpose of this review. I was able to check out all the behind the scenes content that they provide, so I can honestly say that I am very impressed with the content quality that him and his team of authors have put together.

Sometimes “PLR” has a bad stigma attached to it. It’s not unusual for someone to think of a PLR site as a bundle of “crap content for Adsense sites.” After looking through a good number of the articles, I can honestly say that the content on PLR.me is high quality.

Ronnie’s content is used by public speakers, authors, and big businesses who use the content for their in-person workshops and seminars. After all, for them to have one of those PDF reports researched, written, edited, and designed, it’d cost them a fortune… but having it done for them and ready to print-on-demand is a great advantage.

The content is really good, and it’s ready to be posted right away in any of the following ways:

What Can You Do With All This Content?

  1. Post on your website or blog
  2. Email newsletters and auto-responders
  3. Create eBooks
  4. Create print-on-demand books
  5. Loyalty-building giveaways
  6. Record a podcast
  7. Record a video and post it to YouTube
  8. Put together a teleseminar
  9. Sell it as a standalone product
  10. Give it away as a bonus or as part of an upsell

Customer Service

Most PLR sites will just give you one bundle of articles, and never update it again. Ronnie and his team of writers at PLR.me have a fresh batch of expertly written content every single month. To back up the product, because Ronnie is positive that you will see an increase in traffic by using PLR.me, he is offering a 200% money back guarantee.

Another thing that sets PLR.me apart, in the sea of PLR providers, is that you can give them a buzz on their toll-free number and ask them questions directly. Also, they boast that any e-mails you send their way will be answered within a day, if not a few hours.

In Closing

I think that Private Label Rights is a great idea for many individuals. If you would rather spend time on other parts of your business, such as networking with individuals, setting up business deals, and concentrating on how to bring more value to your clients then this is a great opportunity for you.

I think I’ll be using bits and pieces of the content for certain things in the future. I want to share as many personal experiences as I can in future articles, since I find that style helps my own personal growth and it has proven to be the most interesting to you guys. PLR could still come in handy for research, and for giving you guys bonus content.

For $20 in the first month, it’s definitely worth checking out. Check out more about PLR at PLR.me and don’t forget to stop by their blog.

    Alex,
    If hundreds of thousands of people do this won’t there be duplicate stuff online daily?
    I thought Google didn’t like duplicated content?

    It all sounds too good to be true. Definetly worth trying out for 20 bucks though.

    @Tess – Google, yes, that’s one way of looking at it. On the other hand, you can use the expert authors advice and rewrite it a bit, in ways that you see it applies to your own life.

    Also, there are many ways such as ebooks and newsletters that won’t be picked up by google.

    Great question, Tess!

    It’s Ronnie from PLR.me and I figured I should give you the real scoop about duplicate content.

    I initially started writing this out as a comment, but it got so long that I didn’t think Alex would appreciate a 650 word blog comment. :)

    I posted a detailed reply on my blog:
    http://www.plr.me/articles/plr-articles/the-duplicate-content-penalty-myth

    As an online marketer for over 9 years, I’ve really studied a lot of search engine optimization information.

    The bottom line:

    There are two types of duplicate content, “off-site” and “on-site.”

    Off-site dupe content is when the same article is posted on different sites. It doesn’t harm you.

    On-site dupe content is when you have the same content, links, and title tags throughout your site. That *does* hurt you.

    It’s all explained in the blog post!

    I’d love to hear your thoughts and I hope it helps in your decision to give us a try. :)

    Ronnie
