When it comes to content, you might as well take a “the more the merrier” mindset, right? We all know that content is king and that the more you have, the better off you are. As such, it makes more sense to pick up and to use as much PLR content as possible, regardless of its initial quality. After all, you’re going to rewrite it (or you’ll hire someone else to do the job). Quality isn’t very important, is it?
And “the more the merrier” isn’t much of a business model.
When you buy PLR content, reach for the top shelf. Buy the good stuff and leave the cut-rate junk alone. Here are a few reasons why you don’t want to bother with low-grade private label rights material.
First, it complicates the editing and rewriting process tremendously. You can take a good PLR article, ingest its message, and produce a credible rewrite quickly and easily. If you start with rotten source material, however, the process takes more time and will soon leave you reaching for a bottle of Tylenol as you tire of suffering through nearly incomprehensible material. That ultra-cheap PLR content loses some of its appeal when you realize how much time you’re wasting to clean it up. Remember, time is money.
Second, there’s a good chance that at least some of the information contained in sub-par PLR content is inaccurate. That means that your subsequent edits are going to feature some of that same incorrect material. Not only is that unfair to those who read the content, it risks making you look foolish and your business appear less credible. While it’s possible that the better private label rights content might contain a few errors, too, it’s far more likely that you’ll find problems with the cheap stuff. If the content appears to have been written in haste by someone who doesn’t really care about his or her craft, it makes sense to have your doubts.
Third, you can use good PLR content “as is” for some purposes or with only minor adjustments to comport to the licensing agreement. The editing and rewriting is necessary for web content, but not for ebooks, special reports and other items that aren’t designed to serve as search engine spider food. If you have poor content, you can’t use it “straight out of the box” because the quality level is humiliating. If you get well-written PLR, however, that option remains open to you.
At first glance, it might make sense to acquire as much PLR content as possible in hopes of burying the competition under layer after layer of text. A close examination, however, reveals that you’re better off investing in high-quality private label rights content.
