The Benefits of PLR to Your Coaching Clients

How many times have you had a client who is desperate to save money without giving up more of their own time in their business? Whether they are an online business owner or run a brick and mortar shop, saving money on business costs is usually at the top of every business owner's list, followed by having more time to do what they want versus spending it working in order to cut their costs.

No need to hire a ghostwriter to write everything for them and they can say goodbye to spending countless hours writing their own sales letters, articles, blog posts, newsletters and more.

You probably already understand the benefits of PLR in your own business, but imagine how your clients would feel if they too could experience the freedom PLR can give them. Not to mention the savings.

How-To Use PLR | Private Label Rights Articles For Quality Content: Guide_ eCourse

Let's face it, with the holiday season quickly coming upon us, we need all the help we can get.

Change, multi-tasking, economic woes and preparation for the holiday season is causing me to experience a brief period of writer's block. I’m struggling to create and present you with some original ideas.

My heart-felt passion is to aid in teaching my readers by providing excellent “how-to” lessons, some practical tips and advice, and to offer some real value and insight.

Yet today, I’m really pressed for time. I have a ton of things on my “to do” list. Thanksgiving is arriving in a few days. Family is coming over for dinner. It’s been four days since I made my last blog post. Where do I turn?

PLR | Private Label Rights To The Rescue

I’ve never published content on the topic of PLR for a couple of reasons.

1. The internet is already flooded with an abundance of articles and reports on this subject. Don’t believe me? Just do a Google search and see what the engine fetches for you.

2. People grow tired of reading old, rehashed information that does not offer anything new, additional or useful.

Yet knowing this, I still decided to delve right in anyway. Why, you may ask?

Because of the situation I found myself in – at a loss for needed, high quality content to place on my blog. If I was in this predicament, possibly others were experiencing the same thing also. Other bloggers might find this information beneficial. Especially beginners starting out in this blogosphere arena.

Also, the tsunami of bad economy news got me to thinking of how to combine PLR products with methods for people to generate additional income. Now I can hear you saying, here we go, just more of the same. Bear with my for a minute – I beg to differ.

As I was researching this subject, I discovered an insurmountable number of articles and reports indicating PLR is still all the rage. PLR continues to be highly popular and has helped thousands of marketers make income and build profitable businesses.

Everyone seems to be pitching the idea of how easy it is to make money using PLR. Now what struck me as odd is....

If Making Money Is So Easy Using PLR Products, Why Isn’t It Being Said More Often ... Only 2% Of People Actually Produce Any Sizable Income With Private Label Products?

What is going on with the other 98%? I’m just going to venture to say, they are most likely not making one thin dime. These are probably people who download or buy products with the good intention of doing something with it later on down the line.

The PLR content then just sits on their computer taking up space because they have no clue how to start and step-by-step instructions are lacking. I know, I’m guilty of this myself.

Honestly, I’m sick and tired of marketers playing with other peoples emotions and desires (sometimes necessity) to make more money without equipping them with the right tools and information to have a decent chance at success.

I’ve gotten so worked up here, I’ve taken it for granted that everyone knows the definition of Private Label Rights (PLR). And some the new folks may not.

What is PLR?

For those unfamiliar with PLR, below is my definition and some examples:

PLR – Private Label Rights are products written or created by someone else which you can buy or download for free , edit the content if you choose and offer it to others, with your name on it, as if you were the author of the product.

Examples Of PLR - articles, ebooks, reports, newsletters, graphics, videos and audio software. (I) Most PLR are text-based because this format offers more options for editing and uses.

Now, think about this .... If the same content is floating around the Web with different authors names on it, how in the world is duplicate content going to drive traffic to your site when the search engines prefer unique content?

This indeed poses a problem for some PLR users because not everyone is capable of revising content to the degree that search engines pick it up as unique material.

Lacking are key elements, skills and tools for PLR users to generate income with these type of products.

One place I
for PLR content which requires no editing of articles is Easy Private Label Rights Articles

Better yet, if you are serious about learning how-to make any sizable income from PLR content, you definitely need a good, expert source. A guide you can trust to follow, written by someone who has been there and done that.

New Look For RangeOnlineWorldwide

Unveiled is the NEW look for RangeOnlineWorldwide. At a glimpse, something new meshed with something old. And No I am not talking about the Obama - Clinton transition appointments.

I realize you may have been expecting further navigation series for Useful Link Spots. Details of these resources are forth coming in a few days. However, I'm taking a brief pause for the cause of a much needed blog makeover.

Blogger vs Wordpress
Several of my of knowledgeable, well-meaning online coaches have advised me to change my blog platform from Blogger to Wordpress. I've been told that Wordpress offers better plugins that are more compatible with Web 2.0 Social Media Marketing.

Following this expert advice is most likely the best way to achieve the results that I want the fastest. But to be just downright honest with you, I hate to just abandon something so near and dear to me. After all, this was my very first blog, my baby...I'm attached, I'm sentimental.

When it comes to search engine ranking, my mentor expressed (not referring to org) blogs get better ranking than blogspot blogs. I'm thinking would Google really allow this to happen?

Anyway, my mentor is really good. He can read minds as well. Before I or any of my mentor's proteges could ask, he said "I know what you're thinking - Matt Cutts uses blogger and he gets great search engine results". His answer to our mental thought, You Are Not Matt Cutts!.

My mentor's bottom line, using blogspot simply does not present a professional image for serious entrepreneurs.

I would love for some of you Blogspot users to give your thoughts on whether using this platform means you don't have a professional site.

Have any of your blogger blogs been listed in top 10 search engines results?

Trackback Feature for Blogger Blogspot:

One of the features I found lacking in blogspot was the limited options for establishing Trackbacks in the comment section of my blog. Being a subscriber to many blogs, I felt at a disadvantage not having this feature.

Well, thanks to Darren Rowse of ProBlogger, I was reading his post Are RSS Suscribers Worthwhile If They Don't Visit Your Blog

Lo and behold, one of the comments provided a solution for placing trackbacks on Blogger.

Haloscan provides the blogger integration placing comment script to accomodate Trackbacks, Polls and Reviews. No programming is required - the process is simple and easy. I ran into a little snag uploading the xml file. The support staff responded in a very timely manner so I could add the feature.

Check it out here. Go on and leave a comment - How do you feel about the new look makeover? The added Trackback link?

Christine’s Internet Marketing Spot Weblog: Navigation Part I

I should have made a weblog navigation post a long time ago. However, I’ve gained a surge of inspiration and energy by the recent election of President-elect Barack Obama .... So as our nation heads into a full transition mode, I just figured it’s the appropriate time for my blog swing into transition as well.

This is the first of a month long series of posts to help my visitors migrate my site to find needed useful and helpful information that will help them.

Site Goals and Tasks:
CR Group & Associates LLC and Christine’s Internet Marketing Spot, strives to locate, share and provide access to online premium business products and services that spur growth to the entrepreneur marketplace.

Site provides small business owners a network of useful information comprised of expert advice sources to grow their revenue through funding resources, office productivity tools and software, computer safety and protection utility programs, internet marketing techniques and latest news features around the Web.

Navigation Overview:
Weblog navigation is such an essential component of a blog, unless you are simply providing content for your eyes only. I would think from an outside user’s point of view, it just makes sense to have an arrangement and placement of content features in a manner that can be easily and instinctively accessed by the user.

This series of posts describes simple, yet flexible navigation that I’ve been toying with over the past couple of years. Here’s where it stands thus far.

Weblog Quick Tour:

Main Section: Content body for weblog posts includes all of the following:
- Articles and Article Sharing
- Related Business Product and Service Reviews
- Commentaries and Opinions

* CR Group & Associates LLC product and services government vendor items for City, State, County and Federal Purchasing Agencies, along with Universities, and School Districts.
