Using PLR To Build Membership Sites
PLR (Private Label Rights) content typically comes in the form of articles or an ebook but there’s no reason you can’t use that content as the basis for a recurring income membership site.
In this article we’re going to look at some strategies for doing just that.
The first thing you need to keep in mind is that a membership site is really just another form of content. But instead of delivering it all at once, such as with an ebook, you’re “drip feeding” it out to your members over a period of time.
If the topic of your PLR lends itself to being delivered in pieces, it could make an excellent basis for a membership site. You would simply break it up into components that would fit together logically, and then add it to a membership site over time.
For example, if you picked up a PLR ebook that outlines a 30 day plan for building an email list, you could break it down into weekly or even daily components and send those pieces out to your subscribers.
These membership sites could run on a platform like WordPress with a membership plugin added or they could be as simple as each new piece of content getting sent out by autoresponder to all your members.
Another way you can use PLR with a membership site is to add it as a bonus to the regular content.
For example, if you were running an internet marketing related membership site, you could pick up PLR packages that would be of interest to your subscribers and then add them to the membership as free bonuses. Doing this on a monthly basis can help to keep your members active, and paying you the monthly fee for longer.
Another effective use for PLR when it comes to membership sites is for inspiration and research purposes. The person who wrote the PLR in the first place did a lot of your work for you, in fact. They outlined the topic, figured out what order to put it in and various other things.
Assuming you’re working with high quality PLR, you can use that research to shortcut having to do it yourself. You can get ideas for things to write about yourself simply by seeing what the PLR author wrote about (and in what order).
Take that outline and even the content itself and use it to form the basic structure of your membership site. You can always tweak it however you see fit, but this gives you a starting point to work from.
