I recently wrote an article about how to use other people’s content on your own blog. The methods I covered are effective for sure, but the article didn’t cover all the ways to do it. So, I thought in this article I’d cover 2 more ways…
Previously I wrote about how you can use other people’s content as a starting point to create your own, giving a different opinion for example. I also wrote that you can use content from somewhere else with a quick introduction and conclusion added by yourself. If you do that though, you must make sure to include a credit and link to the original writer.
So, what are the 2 more ways..?
Well, one of them is to use content that hasn’t been published anywhere before, even on the original writer’s space, and that’s to pay someone to write for you. Ok, ok, that is a whole new ball game, because it has a cost attached, but it will provide you with content for your blog.
It can work well though, because once your blog is developed with healthy traffic and if it’s a blog which generates income, you can balance the cost of using a writer against the income it will bring, and you may find that you can scale up your efforts and move away from direct content generation yourself.
There is a way though, which sort of combines 2 of the methods I’ve mentioned. Yes, there is still a cost, but vastly reduced, and it has a huge added benefit. That method is to use PLR.
PLR stands for private label rights, and it’s a model used in industry for decades. In industry, particularly the food industry, a manufacturer would create, say, boxes of cereal, and supermarkets then pay a fee for the license to put their name on the box.
In the world of online content, in this case articles for your blog, you pay a small one off fee to be able to put your own name to an article written by someone else. The huge plus to this model is that you do not have to give credit and a link to the original author, and that means you are not sending traffic away from your site.
Once you’ve paid the fee, you can just whack up the content as is, straight on your blog. I don’t recommend that myself, I would always suggest you make small changes to the content, maybe to put your own style into it.
Another plus point with PLR is that you can use the content more than once. You can use it to generate traffic to your blog, then use it on the blog, maybe use it in an email auto responder. Lots of PLR licenses allow you to use the content in books, meaning you can put together your own product.
You do need to check what the license does or does not allow you to do, and you also need to make sure of the quality of the content. There is some great PLR content out there, but there is also plenty of very poor quality out there!
So, if you struggle to create enough content for your blog, but do not want to send traffic to other authors, consider the benefits of paying a small fee to delve into private label rights content. Some people sneer at the whole concept, but it’s an option used by many others!
That’s it for today – do let me know what you think!
