How I Decide What PLR To Invest In
Over the years I’ve heard a lot of people say to only purchase PLR when you know what you’re going to do with it and I agree with this if you’re purchasing everything. I see things a little differently.
I like to keep my content stash stocked, so if there is a topic that is in my niche and I get excited about – I will purchase it at the lower rate.
Yes, this means I have TONS of content and that I will never use some of it. It also means that when I start a new project chances are that I already have the content that I need at my fingertips (or in my folders). So I don’t have to go looking for what I need.
My son says that I have no memory, but PLR is different. I can normally remember what topics I have and who I purchased it from. Even if it is a vague memory. 🙂
I also know who writes and sells the PLR topics that work with my business, so I head for those folders first.
If you have no PLR memory I would create a spreadsheet of what you have and link to each folder you keep it in. Google Drive works amazing for this type of task. I would create a tab for each topic and then section it off by PLR bundle with the site name.
Here is an example:
In this spreadsheet I would probably also include what components it includes or what type of product. One of these is a challenge and the other is a course.
I’ve used both of these for a few different projects so both were a great investment for me.
I am definitely not telling you to purchase every single PLR pack that is on sale. Before I narrowed down my niche and understood who my audience was – I did this. It can get expensive. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I’ll purchase something I’ll never use because I get shiny object syndrome as well, but now if it doesn’t fit my blog categories, my goals, my vision, or projects I’ve thought of doing in the future – I pass.
I’m suggesting that you set a budget and start purchasing the ones that you might use in the future. PLR is an investment and an asset.
