Private Label Rights: Your Shortcut to Engaging Content for Your Website

Private label rights material can save you a lot of time

You already know that having unique, high quality content on your website is critical to your online success. That content needs to engage visitors and answer their questions before they even ask.

Unfortunately, creating content is time consuming, even if you've been practicing the productivity tips in Improve Your Productivity – Step 4: Work Smarter, Not Longer/Harder.

When you don't have enough time, private label rights material, or PLR, can be a life saver. PLR is text that you purchase with the right to publish the content and claim it as your own. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

Yes – it's wonderful. But a question may have already popped into your mind – if you can buy the content, can't your competitors do the same? You wouldn't want to publish content that has already been or might soon be published on your competitors' websites.

PLR can be easy to use. Just follow the guidelines below, and you'll discover how it can save you loads of time and also help you have the unique, high quality content you need.

High Quality PLR is Affordable

There is a lot of low quality, old PLR on the market. You don't want to buy that kind. If the quality is poor, you'd probably spend as much time editing it as if you'd researched and written original content.

Some niches are evergreen. In other words, the information for the niche doesn't change much over time. Most likely, though, your site would be damaged by old PLR that gives out of date information.

How, then, do you choose PLR that's high quality and up to date? You won't be able to examine the text of the articles before you buy, so at first, you'll have to do your best to evaluate the likelihood that PLR content you purchase will be worth the cost.
  • Do a Google search on the name of the PLR site or the author to find reviews from previous customers. This search is worth the time because you can eliminate some obviously bad PLR.
  • Make a small purchase. PLR is often sold in packs of several articles, so buy one of the less expensive packs to read and evaluate. The quality is generally similar across all articles.

Customize private label rights material for your website

Personalize the PLR

Yes, you'll need to do some rewriting so that your readers don't recognize the content as something they'd already seen somewhere else. But rewriting is far easier than starting from scratch.

You'll want to rewrite both the headline and the text as much as possible, but here are some additional tips to get you started.
  • Add your opinion in several places.
  • Give examples to expand key ideas.
  • Add sub-headings in various spots.
  • Change the formatting. For example, make bullet points from ideas in a paragraph.
  • Read Research for Your Blog Posts Is Easy – Find Out How for tips on finding supplemental data to add to the article.
  • Do a Google search for quotes that fit the content and insert them in boxes in between paragraphs.
  • Add images or YouTube videos to embellish the text.
By the time you finish, you will have infused the article with your style and voice. You'll have new, engaging content for your readers, and you will have done it a lot faster than you might imagine.

Improve Your Productivity - Step 4: Work Smarter, Not Longer/Harder

"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."- H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Do you know people who are always running from one task to another? Perhaps you wished that you could get as much done as they do.

But have you ever actually taken note of just what they've accomplished? You might be surprised to find out that in all their busy-ness, they're not getting as much accomplished as you thought. Instead, they might just be fulfilling an idea that they need to stay busy and, as a result, end up wasting time on menial tasks.

This would be a great time to go back and read the first article in this series – Improve Your Productivity – Step 1: Adopt a Positive Attitude.

The best time management is about working smarter rather than longer or harder. How do you do that?

Plan, Plan, Plan

The idea of planning might scare you. But give it a try. It could be the most important change you could make.
  • At the end of your day when the following day's work is fresh in your mind, take just a few minutes to make a general plan for the next day. Then stick to your plan as much as possible.
  • Use a calendar like Google Calendar and/or organizer like DayViewer. Set time limits for each task so that you don't use up too much time on a particular job. You might be surprised that you can finish a task within a time limit when previously, you would have spent much longer on it.
  • Know your deadlines and mark them on your calendar/organizer. In fact, target them earlier than the real deadline to give yourself a cushion for revisions, second thoughts, etc.
  • Leave time for breaks in between each task. Around 10 minutes should be good. Shorter won't give you enough of a break, and longer might make it difficult to get back to work.
Improve Your Productivity - Step 4: Work Smarter, Not Longer/Harder

Focus, Focus, Focus

Many people seem proud to say that they're multi-tasking – as if that means they're getting more done. In fact, studies show that multi-tasking often leads to getting less done rather than more.
  • When you plan your day, prioritize the important tasks and work on them first rather than leaving them for last.
  • Focus on each task in your plan at the time you've allotted for it. Have a clock in front of you. Make it a large one so that you're continuously aware of how much time you have left for each task.
  • Set alarms 10 or 15 minutes prior to deadlines so that you can give extra energy in the final push to complete the task.
  • Don't obsess over unimportant details. Doing so is ineffective and a waste of your valuable time.
  • Eliminate time wasters. Check the tips in Improve Your Productivity – Step 2: Banish Distractions.

Tips like these can help you enjoy what you're doing instead of dreading it. If you're not enjoying your work, then it's time to ask yourself how you can revise your daily routine so that you enjoy getting up every morning and doing your tasks.

If so, you’ve taken a big step in the right direction. But keep in mind that no one can tell you the best way to organize your work life. Getting and staying organized is a matter of developing a personal routine that fits your personality and lifestyle.

Online Tools?

A friend of yours might have praised an online tool that helped her get so organized that she now has extra time each day for relaxation or shopping. There are numerous online tools that promise the moon and the stars, but what works great for one person often doesn’t work for another.

That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try the program your friend recommended. You’ll know pretty quickly whether it suits you. Just don’t try to force the issue.

Know Yourself

In order to develop a routine that works best for you, ask yourself some questions to understand what part of your daily routine needs improvement.
  • Are you always running later than you planned?
  • Do you find it difficult to follow through on tasks?
  • Would a gentle reminder help you stay focused?
  • Are you a procrastinator?
You can think of other pertinent questions. Once you’ve determined where you need to improve, look for online tools that focus on those areas.

Improve Your Productivity - Step 3: Develop a Routine That Fits Your Lifestyle

Collaboration Can Be Good

Even if you work alone and like it that way, informal collaboration when you find yourself stuck on a problem can uncover solutions that you hadn’t thought about. A friend might casually mention something that inspires you to see the issue in a new light. Or sometimes just hearing your thoughts out loud can shed new light on the issue. Don’t hesitate to use a friend as a sounding board.

Tips

No matter what your lifestyle is like, there are a few general tips that can help you develop your own routine.
  • Scan incoming material (emails, online content, etc.) to determine whether it’s actually useful to you. Be ruthless – delete, delete, delete.
  • Don’t clutter your inbox with material that might be useful to you in the future. Instead, file the material in folders with useful folder names that will make it easy to find pertinent information later.
  • Track your habits to understand yourself better – an understanding that will lead to an improved daily routine. Know what times of the day you are naturally the most productive, and design your routine with that in mind.
  • If you’re someone who finds social media to be a huge distraction, limit your social media involvement during your working hours to programs that assist your work. Social media that you do for fun should be done during personal time.
These ideas are just to get you started. You can probably think of other ways that will help you develop your own routine. Remember – looking at what works for others can inspire you, but be sure to concentrate on what will work for you.

Improve Your Productivity - Step 2: Banish Distractions

Improve Your Productivity - Step 2: Banish Distractions

Do you have any idea how many hours you lose because of distractions that tempt you away from your work? Receiving calls, checking email, chatting with friends, or the biggest distraction of all – browsing Facebook.

The 2015 study by financial management service Think Money revealed some interesting food for thought.
  • Distractions eat up 3 hours of the work day of 33% of employees.
  • That means distractions account for 60 hours each month for each employee and 759 hours each year. That’s almost twenty 40-hour work weeks per year.
  • Employees anonymously cited checking social media, online shopping, and chatting with colleagues as their main distractions.
The point is that minds can easily wander. This is just as true for bloggers who work at home as it is for office employees. In fact, it might be that there are actually more distractions for those who work at home – dogs to walk, meals to make, home deliveries to accept, and more.

Is a Retreat the Answer?

Some people have the luxury of retreating to a cottage or cabin far from civilization in order to concentrate on a special project, in particular authors who needed to escape from the demands of the modern world to write or finish their latest masterpieces.
  • Mark Twain isolated himself in a shed away from the house where the rest of his family was spending the summer. His family blew a horn to call him for meals, but he wrote much of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in his retreat.
  • Microsoft CEO Bill Gates isolated himself twice a year to read and think.
  • Author Neal Stephenson frequently isolates himself, explaining, “If I organize my life in such a way that I get lots of long, consecutive, uninterrupted time-chunks, I can write novels.”
Improve Your Productivity - Step 2: Banish Distractions

Become a Minimalist

Going on a retreat isn’t practical for most of us. Because of that, we have to take charge of eliminating distractions ourselves.
  • Turn off nonessential smartphone notifications – email, Facebook, Twitter, games, etc. Instead, check those apps only when it is convenient for you.
  • Schedule your email work. Experts suggest that you read and answer email twice a day – at a time that fits into your schedule.
  • Reduce the visual clutter in your immediate environment by removing nonessential items from your desk, walls, and computer.
  • Keep focused with a to-do list. Add and subtract tasks as needed. It’s very gratifying to cross completed items off the list. There are many free list apps online you can use. Or if you find it more satisfying, make your list with pen and paper.
  • Determine when you work best and block off those hours for yourself. Make sure that friends and family know when you’re not available except for emergencies.
  • Forget multi-tasking. Each time you change tasks, you waste time on refocusing. Instead, give your full attention to one task. You’ll do a better job and finish it quicker.
  • Schedule distractions. Yes, we all need breaks from time to time, but they should be on your timetable rather than imposed on you.
Banishing distractions during your working hours will certainly help you be more productive. And the satisfaction you’ll gain from being more productive will be the best reward you could get.

Improve Your Productivity - Step 1: Adopt a Positive Attitude

Productivity is the name of the game when it comes to blogging. Getting more done in less time is essential if you are going to maintain a high-quality blog.

After reading How to Be a Consistent Blogger, you understand that the way to keep your readers coming back for more is to post high-quality content on a regular basis. But sometimes Life just seems to get in the way.

In the excitement of starting your blog, you somehow managed to find the time to write interesting, captivating posts. But when readers didn’t overwhelm your site with traffic, you may have gotten discouraged.

You may even have started to regard your blog as just another chore that you had to take care of each day or each week. As your attitude declined, your posts stopped stimulating your readers to return on a regular basis.

Attitude Is Everything

Yes, we’ve all heard this saying since we were very young. In fact, we’ve heard it so often that it lost its meaning. Now, though, is the time for you to re-examine your attitude.

You probably already realize that you do a better job when you’re excited about a project. The same is true of writing blog posts. Not only will you do a better job when you’re excited about your topic, but you will inspire your readers about your topic as well. And inspired, excited readers will come back to your blog for more.

Improve Your Productivity - Step 1: Adopt a Positive Attitude

Be Realistic

You might be thinking that it’s easy to preach that a person should have a positive attitude, but that it’s much more difficult to develop or maintain an optimistic outlook when Life gets in the way.

Yes, it can be difficult, but in the end, it comes down to making a conscious choice to be positive. Make cultivating positivity your priority. Sometimes you have to ‘fake it’ until you ‘make it.’

How can you force yourself to be positive?
  • ‘Positivize’ Your Environment: Yes, that’s not a real word, but you get the idea, don’t you? Your environment has a huge effect on your attitude and how successful you are in your endeavors. So take some time to decorate your writing area with pleasant colors and personal items that remind you of happy times: a sanctuary where you can produce your best work.
  • Gratitude Journal: Don’t think of this as a huge project. Start out by committing to write down one positive thing each day. As the days progress, you might find yourself noticing more than one positive item. Go ahead and write as many as you like. This indicates that your focus is becoming more and more optimistic.
  • Read Uplifting Material and Watch Uplifting Programs: Find blogs and books that inspire you to look at the world in a positive way. It goes without saying that this means cutting down on news reports and violent programs. If your family can’t stop watching a program that gives you nightmares, take a walk while they watch it.
  • Be Intentionally Kind in Small Ways: Research recognizes that being kind benefits a person’s own health and happiness. Again, this is not a huge project.
    • Leave a sweet note to be found by a friend or family member.
    • Smile at strangers when you pass on the street.
    • Smile and give the right of way to another driver.
    • Find ways to compliment others whenever you can.
    • Come up with your own ideas to be intentionally kind.
You may find that it takes a long time to develop a consistently positive attitude, but if you stick to it, you’re likely to find that Life becomes happier and healthier overall for you at the same time that you’re inspiring your readers with high-quality blog posts. Win-win.
