Information Products – Create Your Own or Buy Private Label Rights (PLR)

Well I will tell you, after years of dabbling in the internet marketing industry participating in several programs, you know the MLM thing, I decided that we were all working hard to produce a few bucks. Then i looked at the number of people in the program in total and you multiple that by the amount of money you spend in the program yourself and wow, we are all busting our butts for a few bucks and the owners are making millions!

That’s when I decided that there has to be a better way to make money on-line and keep more of it for me. I mean that’s why we are all doing this right, to improve your families lives and give them a better future.

It became apparent to me that there was a lot of people out there selling these eBooks on line and they must be making money or what would they be doing it for? There was sites like Clickbank and others that sold these information products and we can sell any of them and make 50% to 75% for ourselves and that is a lot better than the results for my efforts in the other programs.

Then I got thinking that selling others people’s products at those commissions is great but what if it was my products that a bunch of other people where selling and I still make 50%. Ding ding ding, yep the bells went off and that became my goal. So… how do I do this? Writing was not my strong point in school so what do I do? I asked around in the circle I was hanging around in at the time and most either didn’t know or weren’t saying. (That’s another conversation)

After digging in the forum world then the blog world, I met some people who where into marketing information products for themselves and also with JV partners, mostly on Clickbank. I then spent some money on coaching which taught me an endless amount of knowledge (still learning) and the biggest thing I learned is that you don’t have to be a big time author to produce your own information products.

That’s where PLR or Private Label Rights products come in. You can buy the product already written, put your spin on it with graphics and some affiliate and website links. You then set up a mini site or sales page, put your product on one of the retail sites and you are off and running! It’s amazing what you can find out when you just do some digging, ask questions. The biggest thing is to keep at it, don’t stop because this person didn’t respond, just keep asking. Some one out there will answer your question eventually.

My best advise I can give is to get yourself a coach to show you how to do this process and start marketing your own products, that is how you can leverage other people efforts and grow your income tremendously. It has made a huge difference in my on line experience and the future is looking very bright!

    Thanks for your insights into getting started in info-product creation. What I’ve found is that many people struggle to take a topic that they have quite a bit of knowledge on and turn it into a product. So that’s where PLR can play a really good kick-start role for anyone wanting to get started.
    Would you believe that many experienced IM’ers also use PLR?

    However, there are a few pitfalls that everyone should be aware of, and there are a few unwritten “rules” that should be observed.
    With this in mind I wrote a post at my Blog some time ago about how to use PLR to boost your income.
    What do you think of the post?

  2. Hi Kelly,
    It sounds like with some experience & after doing some research, you’ve come up with a game plan for yourself.
    I congratulate you in maintaining your focus & determining what direction you wanted to head into.
    I wish you much success in your journey. You sound like you’re going places!

  3. Hi Kelly – just popped over here from Dan Sumner’s blog. I’m trying to visit everyone else on the list of posts he published.

    This is very interesting. I must admit I haven’t used any PLR products yet, as I like to write my own content.

    There definitely seems to be an advantage in creating and marketing your own products – so much more satisfying than just getting a commission on someone else’s stuff. I’m planning to try writing some eBooks next year.

    Good luck with your business,

    I would encourage you to do so, video training as well is a lot simpler than you think.

    Good luck to you as well!


  7. Hi Kelly,

    Some good tips there to put marketers on the right track to success. I agree with you on the coaching and mentor advice. If you want a fast track and a taken by the had process, then mentors are the right way to go. I did it the hard way, learned from scratch, but if I could have my shot again I would grab a mentor!

    Thanks Kelly,


  8. Hi Dan,

    Thanks for stopping by, good to see you. For sure, many successful people in the world, not just internet marketers, all have mentors to help grow their business. Why try to reinvent the wheel, just follow those who came before us and do what they did to succeed – no brainer!



  9. I like the helpful information you provide inn your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog andd check again here frequently.

    I’m quite sure I’ll learn many new stuff right
    here! Good luck for the next!

  10. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
    or hints? Appreciate it!

    Hey Cerrajeros,

    Thanks for stopping by as well as the kind words.

    What I do before I sit done to write is to make sure all distractions are turned off the TV, cell phone, Facebook, the obvious ones. It also doesn’t hurt to have a topic picked out that you may think of during the day and make notes as you go through your day in a note book or in your phone (which I do). That will give you a head start as you sit down to write.

    10 or 15 minutes is not at all out of the realm of sufficient time. It can take me a couple of hours to hit the publish button so don’t think you are taking too much time to do it right. If you need to do some research before hand to get some ideas, that is a great way to get a start then just write. Maybe write a couple to 10 posts at once when you are in the groove and simply post them at different days of the week.

    Finally, do your creating in word or word-pad, what ever program you have then simply copy and paste into your posting screen. That way you won’t feel pressure to hit the publish button and rush the process, that will only take you more time in the end.

    Hope this helps and feel free to come back with more comments or questions.

    Good luck!
