As you probably know I am a big advocate for the use of PLR in business. How about using PLR as part of your affiliate program?
If you run an affiliate program, you know how time consuming it can be to keep your affiliate center loaded with tools and resources to help your affiliates promote your product or services. It can be a full time job in it's own and quite frankly as a business owner you have other things you need to expend your energy on, on top of your affiliate program.
One way to save yourself some time and keep your affiliates happy and with a constant source of promotional resources is with the use of PLR articles. There are actually a couple of ways to go about this, so choose the one (or both) that fits your particular program needs the best.
The first way to use PLR in your affiliate program is to use your own PLR articles and rewrite them so they can be used by your affiliates to promote your product or service. This will save you tons of time writing completely original content for them to use. It will also save you money, because PLR articles tend to be much less expensive than hiring a ghostwriter.
The second way, which will benefit you and your affiliates more in the long run, but may not be something your affiliate's are willing to do on a consistent basis (which is why you should actually implement both of these techniques) is to teach your affiliates how to use their own PLR content to promote you.
You can set up an e-Course or training manual that explains how PLR works and why it's beneficial to them to use it in your program. Don't be surprised when if you get a few emails from affiliates thanking you for turning them onto private label rights articles, either.
Here is a great resource – For more information and great PLR you need to check out what Nicole Dean is up to. Yes I am an affiliate but only because I am such a happy and satisfied customer. Thanks Nicole!
Great ideas Michele,
Thanks so much for sharing them with us. I too love and use a lot of Nicole Dean’s PLRs – she’s a great resource – as are you!
Thank you Debbie. I agree about Nicole and I am honored that you think of me as a great resource as well. That make me smile. Thanks, Michele
Those are both great ideas for using PLR.
As a testimonial to your article Michelle, I use PLR several times throughtout every week for different things. I love the stuff and have a hard drive jam packed with the stuff. There are just so many ways to use it!
I really like Nichole’s stuff too. I use it whenever she has something that will work for one of my clients sites. As a matter of fact, I’ll bet that you’ll agree that her stuff is so good it doesn’t even need to be rewritten if you are using it somewhere where duplicate content isn’t an issue such as autoresponder messages or re purposing content for an ebook in PDF format.
Meeting her at NAMS4 in Atlanta last August was a real treat. She’s a super sweet lady
Those that need some good content should check out the link in Michelle’s article above and give it a try, you’ll love it!
Thanks for a great article!
Hi Leigha, Thanks for commenting. I do agree – I think PLR is a powerful tool and I think Nicole rocks! LOL Like you I have a hard drive full and I keep her’s in a special place because I don’t want it getting confused with the others. I always go to her stash first – LOL. Thanks, Michele
What a great idea Michele! Your blog is filled with great tips that make online marketing fun and full of potential. I love your idea of seeting up a bit of a training manual to help your affiliates really understand and use the tools that are available to them. I am in the process of building a special blog just for my affiliates to visit for tips, ideas, resources, training and tools. It is extra work on the front end but will hopefully attract and welcome affiliates. Your ideas have inspired me to take consistent action.
Thank you, keep up the awesome information Michele!!
Hey Helen – So glad that this helped. This is what I love about the world of blogging we all learn so much from each other. Thanks for commenting, Michele
