One of the easiest Internet marketing platforms to use is acquiring, modifying and selling your own Private Label Rights products from start to finish.
If you choose great products, find ways to make them better, and effectively market and promote your new version of an existing product, it can be a very lucrative business. It also eliminates the time-consuming step of creating original content and products.
Open Office and Its Uses
The first thing you are going to need is a word processing program. If you have purchased the Microsoft Office Suit, you can use Word.
If you have an Apple, you already may have purchased Apple Writer or iWork. If you don’t currently have a word processing program, you can download Open Office, a free, open source bundle of programs that includes a word processor, as well as programs to create spreadsheets, presentations, manage databases and even a drawing program.
It works the same as Word or any of the other word processors, although some of the tabs are in different places so it takes a little getting used to. The important thing is now that you have a word processor, you can get started acquiring a PLR.
Uploading Your PLR Product
Finding PLR products is easy.
Simply Google “Where can I find PLR products” and you will get links to thousands of websites offering them. Avoid sites that try to sell you PLR packages because with this guide you can create your own branded products on your own.
Selecting the right PLR product is a little trickier. Because you are going to be working with the product – rearranging it, editing it, rewriting it, possibly breaking it into smaller pieces – you probably want to choose a product with which you have at least a passing familiarity.
If you know nothing about particle physics, for example, you may have a hard time forming a fresh, marketable product out of a PLR particle physics textbook.
Don’t Spend Too Much
You also want to avoid overspending. There are all kinds of PLR products in many various platforms – from eBooks to videos, audio recordings to bundles of articles, graphics to programming code.
As you search for products in the niche you are interested in, you’ll find products at various price points. Just remember: You want to make money by reselling the product either as a whole or in parts, so the lower the upfront cost the more money you stand to earn as profit.
When you find a PLR product you like, pay for it and it will be sent to you electronically, usually as either an email attachment or as a Zip file.
Personalizing Your Product with Fonts and Spacing
Most PLR are delivered in a Word file, so they are easy to edit. Some, however, are delivered as PDF files. If this is the case, you will need to convert it into a Word file. There are three ways to do this.
If you have an updated version of Adobe, you can copy and paste text from a PDF file into a Word file. Then just save the new document on your computer.
If you have an older version of Adobe, it won’t allow you to copy and paste the text, but you can save the content in your PDF file as a text file, then copy and paste the text file into a Word file.
Reformatting Your PLR Product
Then you will need to reformat it so that it like a Word file you can work with by removing deleting all the line stops so that it reads normally; changing the font to something like Arial or Times New Roman; and changing the font size to 12 or 14.
Probably the easiest way is to download a free program that will convert PDF into Word files.
After you have downloaded or converted your PLR product into a Word file, you can use the formatting tools that come with Word to manipulate it any way you like, changing the font, the font size, even changing the color of the text or pages if you want.
