Lately, I have been reading a bit about the Private Label Rights industry. In the writers network, it is popularly referred to as PLR content. When I came across this industry for the first time, I had completely discredited them, primarily due to the duplicate content theory.
In the case of PLR content, the problem is even bigger. You join a PLR membership site and share a pack of articles every month with anywhere between 200-1500 members. It is duplicate content problem multiplied because each one is paying for the content consciously.
However, in the past few weeks, after I started off the Niche marketing experiment, I was exploring options for cost effective writing solution. After all, when you move from 1 blog to 2 and 2 to 4 and 4 to 8, you need a solution to manage the content part. It so happened that, when I was exploring my options, I came across PLR content again. This time I decided to take a deeper look.
I checked out a few services and zeroed on PLRPro.com run by Daniel Turner and Marc Lindsay. I cannot tell you why, but I could sense honesty in them. Plus, they were offering a $1 trial. I signed up, downloaded one of the packs and the VRE Guide and to avoid any abuse on my part, I canceled the subscription. It would be unfair to download 440 articles for $1.
I admit the quality of their articles is very good. Anyways, I took out 2 articles from the pack of 40 I downloaded and decided to do a mini experiment. I opened up an article, timed myself and sat to re-write it. When I finished the job, I checked the time to see I had taken about 8 minutes to complete it. I moved over to the next article and repeated the process. This time it took me about 10 minutes to complete the re-writing job.
I then went ahead and open up DupeFree Pro and compared the Original Article 1 and my re-write. Here is the result.
The first article, when compared to the re-write had a difference of about 93%. DupeFree Pro showed similarity of 7.065%. Here is the second article.
This time, the difference is about 94%, which means a 6% similarity. According to experts, there should be at least a 30% difference to make an article look acceptable, while the respected level is 72%. In under 10 minutes, I was able to perform better.
This experiment honestly has given me a new perception about PLR content. I can suddenly sense a myriad of possibilities. Okay, not really myriad, but I can see profits in these article packs. The primary usage being Niche marketing. Re-writing really isn’t that difficult. I was able to re-write articles almost completely in 18 minutes.
