Buying PLR blog content saves time and money, that is a fact.
One pitfall is if 100 licenses are issued, there’s a small possibility all will publish it on the web.
Often I’m asked how to use done-for-you content?
How can I make it sound like my voice?
How can I make it original enough so it’s not like everyone else who bought it?
Step 1: Buy PLR Blog Content
The first step to using done-for-you content is to buy it.
Not sure who to buy from? Read this post with my Top 10 PLR Providers.
You can also try free blog content from PLR writers. I have 7 free samples here. (opt-in required – my list for Done-for-You content and training for bloggers)I'm learning how to transform my PLR #blogcontent - Just downloaded free samples too.Click To Tweet
Choose a topic, opt-in to receive your free PLR and download it.
Step 2: Open and Review Your PLR Blog Content
Once you buy your content, unzip the file and review all the pieces.
Some packages just have articles others include Tweets, images, and infographics.
Before starting I highly recommend you make a backup copy.
You don’t want to make changes to the original or accidentally delete it.

Step 3: Select the Piece You Want to Use
After you buy your blog content, unzip the file, and review all the pieces, select one piece to use.
I’ve selected Five Must-Have Supplies That Should Be Part Of Your Disaster Preparation.
Now, read through the entire text.
- Does anything stand out to you?
- Does an expert come to mind?
- How about a famous quote?
- Do any products jump out at you?
This piece mentions water, non-perishable ready to eat food, weather radio, flashlight, batteries, and a first aid kit.
What sticks out to me is safe water storage. Here’s why…
Over the summer I started storing water.
I cleaned old plastic containers, filled them, taped them shut, dated and stored them.
To my surprise, mold started growing inside the bottles.
I had to pour out all the water and recycle all the bottles.
My water storage efforts were in vain.
Knowing my real life experience, I want to 1. know how to safely store water and 2. warn others of my unsafe discovery.
This is a perfect story to add to this content. I’d also research storing water safely.
Products that come to mind are solar radio, water filter, solar lamps, flashlights with batteries taped to the side, edible non-perishable food sources, and first aid kits. (special needs, allergies, health issues).
I haven’t written a thing.
This all came to mind as I read the PLR blog content.
Step 4: Prepping your Content for Publication
First thing, make a copy.
I’m pointing this step out twice because there’s nothing like losing paid content.
I bought a package of 52 emails, articles, and a short report as well as over a hundred products on a dime sale.
All of it disappeared into the ether when my computer’s hard drive crashed.
Nope, I didn’t think it necessary to back up my computer back then. (silly Sara)
Next, upload the articles into your WordPress drafts and save.

All that’s left to do is transform and publish.
Grab this checklist of questions to ask when transforming content.
Here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when editing your PLR Blog Content:
- Research keyword-phrase
- Change Headline
- Change the Subheadings
- Change the introduction
- Add transitions
- Add Conclusion
- Add personal anecdotes, stories, examples
- Add quotes (relevant or from experts)
- Add statistics or research
- Add images
- Add tweets
- Add an infographic
- Add a video or screenshot or screen capture
- Share an explanation or an expert interview
There certainly a lot more you can do, but this will get you started.
