PLR Content Business: Why should you consider it?
If you’re finding it difficult to launch your website or blog, it may be the solution.
You’re focusing on the design of your website (for the last 6-months) and haven’t started writing content.
How will you fill your blog with content for an entire year, let alone the next month?
I totally get where you’re at.
I’ve been blogging since 2007 and still find it difficult to write, even on topics I enjoy.
But, the only way to start is to take the next step, imperfect as it may be.
You see, PLR Content isn’t my “go to” source.
I’m a writer at heart.
Why would I stick content on my blog that I didn’t write?
Why would you?
Why do I even encourage it?
PLR Content Business: It’s a start
See? When she was starting out, “It saved the day”. She used it as a starting point until she felt comfortable with researching and writing her own content.
Imagine where she would be if she waited until she was confident in her own writing?
Knowing Julie, I’m sure she’d still be as successful as she is today, BUT, if creating content is a roadblock for you, consider a detour.
If PLR content for your business can push you past your current state of “dumbfoundingly starting into the headlights of launching your website”, then I say use it.
Let’s take me as an example:
I’ve rewritten and uploaded content for internet niche marketers sites since 2005.
I’ve used it a little on my own sites but it still didn’t sit well with me.
My head understands the practicality of it but my ‘artist’s mind’ sticks it’s nose up at it.
Let’s get real, okay.
The content on your blog drives search engine traffic, right?
You need a lot of content, right?
You also have a finite amount of time to create that content, am I right?
Ryan Biddulph shares:
Just like curating content saves time while adding value, PLR Content can be used in the same way.
If, your blog is a marketing tool AND not your artist’s canvas, does it matter where the content comes from?
No, I’m not saying you should publish crap content. I’m not suggesting you publish content that goes against your core business values either.
I am saying that it doesn’t have to be perfect.
You have so much on your to-do list already.
If your budget is tight, meaning you can’t hire a writer, use PLR Content.
It’s as simple as that.
Step out of your own way and just do it.
If, your customers find out, so what?
Ask yourself, are your customers learning valuable information? or Are your readers able to solve their problems with the content you’re sharing?
Then, explain why you use it – save time, save money, and save sanity. ^_^
What’s so important about it coming from you, from start to finish?
If you’re still bothered by it, let me suggest you hire a virtual assistant. What can she/he do?
She can take your PLR, read it for you, grab some writing or talking points, and suggest some researched sources to quote.
Would this make it easier for you?
You might be thinking, Why not just hire her without all the PLR content business then?
You certainly can, but as a virtual assistant, I can tell you, having the niche topics in front of me (sample articles and key points) makes it a lot easier to create content that my clients actually want.
Remember, virtual assistants who specialize in content, write for a number of niches. This means they know a little about a lot of topics. Why not give them an advantage?
It definitely means less back and forth in emails and Skype calls. Remember, your finite time?
It’s Not Easy for Me
It’s not easy for me either.
You don’t know this, but I’ve been afraid to reveal this side of my business (and writing) for a while.
Fear of what?
Believe me, people have voluntarily told me exactly what they think of me for using outside writers – in not so pleasant language.
But, a few have thanked me.
Thanked me for sharing this concept of PLR content as an alternative to writing or even hiring a writer – which is outside their current budget.
Is it for everyone, of course not.
Does anything for everyone really exist? Of course not.
Why Use PLR Content in Your Business?
- it’s convenient
- it’s a low-cost alternative to hiring an in-house writer
- it saves time (no more brainstorming topics and writing outlines or researching for hours)
- it saves money (no need to hire a freelance writer – leverage your resources and hire a team of writers)
- it saves your sanity (no more stressing over what to write – it’s already done for you)
- great for startups (concentrate on the big things)
- great for new bloggers (easily have a bank of content before you officially launch)
- a passive content source (much like curating content)
As you can see, PLR content for your business website or blog can be a helpful push. Especially if you feel like your feet are stuck in concrete and you don’t know how you’re going to take the next step.
