* Selling PLR? 5 Mistakes to Avoid

It is relatively easy to make money with private label rights products, like article packs and e-books. These are products you buy, re-brand, and sell for a profit. However, if this is a new experience for you, it is easy to make mistakes. Continue reading for five PLR product mistakes you can avoid because these mistakes have the potential to lose you thousands of dollars or more!

Don't let your book gather dust!1 – Do Not Let Your Products Gather Dust

Whether you purchased one single pack of 25 PLR articles or 100 PLR e-books, do not let the files sit on your computer unused. Each second these files sit unused, you lose money. You bought the products to make money, so do it. If you are limited on time, make few e-book and article edits. Consider adding the articles on a website with ads and affiliate links or create a sales page for the e-book. When you have more time, go back, edit more, and work on marketing. Each of your products deserve attention, but don’t leave them sitting while waiting for the best time. Never forget that you will not make money until you actually use the product you bought.

 

2 – Do Not Leave the Documents As Is Be sure to edit!

As previously stated, make only a few edits to your PLR articles or e-books if you are in a rush. If you have the time right now to inject quality into the products, do it. Private label e-books and articles are sold for affordable prices because they are sold to many people. It is common for sellers to sell 500 or more e-books and 100 or more PLR article packs. This means a lot of competition. However, if you take the time to rewrite the articles or e-books, you essentially create a new, different version. You can market it as 100% original. This not only decreases the competition, but it increases your earnings too!

 

 

3 – Not Researching All Your Options

As previously stated, PLR e-book buyers make money by rewriting all or a portion of an e-book and selling it to interested readers. This is great, but it is not your only option. Why not dissect that e-book and create mini articles. Not only can you sell the e-book, but also you now have a website that can generate income through affiliate programs and pay-per-click advertising. The same can be done with PLR articles. You can also take those articles, combine them, arrange in a different order, and delete the duplicated information. You now have an e-book!

 

 

Squeeze the most out of your product!4 – Not Getting the Most from Your PLR Products

This mistake ties in with not researching all your options. When most individuals buy a 25 pack of articles, it is because they are creating a website. That website can be a paid membership website or generate income through ads. Considering that most PLR articles sell for around $1 each, you can easily turn a profit in a few days or weeks at the most. Nevertheless, there are steps you can take to increase your profits even more. Consider the topic. Do you have a pack of articles on how to choose a cosmetic surgeon? If so, most of the same tips apply for choosing other medical professionals, such as family doctors, chiropractors, dentists, and surgeons. Interchange a few words in each article and you now have four more websites to create. You can do the same with e-books too!

 

Creating more than one product5 – Relying on Only One Product

As previously stated, you can easily take one pack of 25 articles, which you may have paid $25 for and spin those articles to create more. You should do this, but keep on buying PLR articles and e-books. The more PLR articles and e-books you re-brand and sell, the more money you make. Plus, this moneymaking opportunity is considered passive income. After posting your e-book for sale, you may get 1,000 sales in the first year. Although those sales will begin to taper, they will always come. You keep earning money overtime. It’s also important to continue adding to your PLR collection for future products you can flip and profit with.

 

* You Have an eBook, Now What?

eBookPLR products are rapidly increasing in popularity. Many individuals are seeing them as a relatively easy way to make money online and they do. When you buy a private label rights product, like an e-book, you have the right to edit that e-book, add your name as the author, and sell as a new product. You are selling a product you did not create from scratch. The buying, re-branding, and selling of PLR product is not just a neat concept, it is also a goldmine.

If done right, this online moneymaking opportunity can replace your current full-time income and then some!

The first step in making money with PLR e-books is to buy them. Many websites and individuals sell them. When making your choice, consider your initial investment. Buying single PLR e-books is nice, but you may end up paying more. Subscription based services tend to give you access to new private label rights e-books every few months. Often you will receive a discount when buying in bulk. Your initial investment is important. The less you spend, the easier and quicker it is to turn a profit.

The next important step in profiting from the re-branding and reselling of PLR e-books is to determine your selling methods. Luckily, you have many options. Most create a sales page. To do this, purchase a cheap domain name and small web hosting packages. Good sales pages consist of eye-catching graphics, chapter summaries, content excerpts, and customer testimonials. You also have the option to do business with a third-party website, such as Lulu.com. These websites are already established with traffic, but they do take a percentage of your sales. If you want to retain the most profits, create your own sales page.

As previously stated, good sales pages have content excerpts from the book, chapter summaries, reviews, and eye-catching graphics. Unfortunately, that is not enough. There are millions of websites and thousands of other similar sales pages and e-books. To increase your profits, you must market your sales page. Just because you list a product for sale online, it does not mean it will sell. Yes, some individuals will find your e-book through a standard internet search, but relying on this alone limits you.

You now know the importance of marking a PLR e-book you re-branded and are selling, but what are your marketing options?

Google AdWords. This program is easy, affordable, and a wise marketing choice. So, you have a sales page where your e-book is listed for sale. To drive traffic to that page, create a Google AdWords account. You are able to create your own advertisement. Along with that, you choose keywords. These keywords are very important. You are selling an e-book, but so are thousands of others. You can use the phrase e-book, but also expand from there. Great examples include e-books for sale, debt consolidation e-books, and so forth. Focus on the general theme of e-books for sale and then the theme or subject your book covers.

What is ideal about Google AdWords is the cost. You can set a budget. If you are just starting out, set your limit at $50. You are only charged when someone clicks on your ads, not every time they appear on a website. This not only saves you money, but also ensures your money is wisely spent. If you set a budget, your ads automatically stop appearing after $50.

Article directories. Article directories are ezines where user-based content is submitted. To capitalize on this free advertising, create articles. Write articles related to the product in question. If selling a how-to internet marketing book, share a few tips in the articles, but leave your readers wanting more. Put a link to your sales page at the end of each article. Most importantly, articles submitted through directories expand and grow. Usage rights are given to others. A blog writer may take your article and post it on their website, but they must leave your name and links intact. Within days, one of your articles can spread across the internet, leading to more sales and income.

Mentioned above were just two marketing ideas for selling a re-branded PLR e-book. Think outside of the box. Market your products online, locally, through message boards, start an affiliate program, and so forth. In fact, your options are endless.
