Time-Saving Tips for Guest Bloggers

If you are considered to be an expert in your niche or have an identifiable brand, it’s relatively easy to convince bloggers to allow you to submit guest blogs. If Donald Trump or Brad Pitt asked if they could write on your blog, you probably would let them, wouldn’t you? But what about the rest of us? How can you influence bloggers to post your guest blogs on their pages? The answer is to provide them with two things they desperately need and can actually use: Time and content. If you have or had your own blog, you know what a struggle it can be to find original, entertaining content to satisfy your regular readers. This is especially true if you are publishing your blog daily or a few times per week. After the initial glow of blogging wears off and the day-to-day grind of generating fresh content takes over, any opportunity to let somebody else fill your blog with high-quality content will be welcome. Ready to Use Content When you approach an established blogger within your niche with the proposal that they allow you to submit a guest blog to their readers, you want to be prepared. If you have just a vague idea of what you want to write about in your guest blog, you are less likely to convince them than if you were to approach them with ready to use content that you have already created. Because they have such a huge platform, bloggers with a lot of regular followers get approached frequently by people wanting to submit guest blogs. But most of these requests...

How to Find High-Quality Blogs to Send You Traffic

The object of guest blogging is to reach the broadest possible audience. So you don’t want to post guest blogs on just any random blog. What you are looking for are the biggest, most popular and most influential blogs in your niche. If you have been blogging for a while or are a regular reader of blogs, you may already have an idea of which blogs fall into this category. What you are looking for are blogs that are “household words” in your niche subject. For example, in the field of US politics, Talking Points Memo is one of the most widely-read blogs in Washington, D.C. So if you are seeking to target politics junkies, publishing a guest post on that blog would put your in front of an enormous audience. If your niche is fashion, getting a guest blog on The Sartorialist would be highly desirable. In film criticism, convincing a noted film critic to let you submit a guest blog on his web page would be a major victory. Tapping into the Blogging Community Regardless of which niches you choose, in all likelihood there already is a thriving blogging community. Given the immense popularity of blogging, there are already established, veteran bloggers writing about nearly every subject imaginable. Interacting with members of your niche’s blogging community has a number of benefits. First, nobody knows better which blogs in your niche are the most influential than the rabid fans of your niche. Ask them. Leave comments on their blog pages or look at their About page to find their email address and send them a personal message. Another...

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 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.

How to Convert Private Label Rights Content into Original Products

The beautiful thing about Private Label Rights products is that once you have paid to license one, it’s yours. You own it and can do anything you want with it. One thing you probably don’t want to do is to offer it for sale as is. That’s because other people probably also bought this same PLR product and they could also offer it for sale as-is. If you offer the exact same product as somebody else, it’s not original and probably isn’t going to sell as well. Instead, you want to modify the product to make it uniquely your own. At the very least, you are going to want to come up with a new title and list yourself as the author. Editing Content to Make It Original The first thing you want to do is to read the PLR product you bought from start to finish. Sometimes it’s helpful to print up a hard copy so that you can mark up the things you want to change and write down your thoughts as you encounter the text for the first time. You also can use the Notes program on Word to do the same thing on-screen, if you want. Creating an Outline After you have become familiar with the product, make an outline of the parts you thought were well-done and those that need to be improved. Remember: You can use the existing text – either in total or in parts – to create your original product, but the best PLR products have the voice of the seller, so you are probably going to want to rewrite most...

5 Ways to Make the Most Out of a Private Label Rights Product

Depending on your talent as a writer and editor, you can take a bad Private Label Rights product and make it good, or take a good PLR product and make it great. The key is to consider the product as an ongoing story that you are telling the reader from start to finish. Make sure you speak to your readers in your everyday voice so it reads more naturally. Don’t try to pretend to be somebody else or become some other character. The reader will connect to you better if you remove any type of artifice when re-creating your product.  Building Excitement Try to be enthusiastic about what you are writing. The buyers of your product have made their purchase because they are passionate about the subject matter. Give the reader what they are looking for and deliver high-value content. If you can do these things, you can not only engage your readers and keep them informed and entertained, but you will minimize refunds. Preparing Your PLR Product for Market Once you have taken the product that you have purchased and transformed it into something unique and of high value, the next step is to polish it and get it ready for market. The most important thing is that your digital product looks professional. That requires using standardized margins and spacing, using Spell Check to look for misspellings and correcting any grammatical errors. Even the smallest mistake can take your reader out of the story you are trying to create. Fonts and Their Benefits You may have edited your document using a font that is easiest to read, such...
