Content – What Every Site Needs

April 16, 2013 · Print This Article

contentContent – What every site wants, what every site needs.

We need content for our blogs. The more content we have, the more we look like an authority site… and the higher we can rank… and the more we can help fix people’s problems… and the more chances we have to monetize… and so on. Of course we’re talking Quality content.

My online work has always been to help you with your content needs. I want to see you succeed! And getting paid to help make your way easier – that’s icing on the cake.

* I started out offering quality PLR in various niches at AllstarPLR back in 2008. That’s still the backbone of my online presence today.

* Then I began PLR-Packages.com where I could offer you full packages – ebook, optin report, sales page, email series, full graphics – so you could set up shop quickly with a product of your own plus all the supporting cast.

* From there Pat Graham and I decided to go deeper into specific niches so you could have so much more PLR than a mere 5 or 10 pack could give you. We started with Internet Marketing, and added Wedding and Baby Boomer as fast as we could. Next came Baby. This site started as a membership site but after 9 months of headaches with the membership software, we changed it to ala carte. It’s evolving again as we’re doing a massive cleansweep.

* EDIT – I totally forgot to mention How To Rewrite PLR! Questions and more questions about how to rewrite PLR lead to this highly successful ebook. How could I forget this?

* After several emails from peeps who were interested in starting their own PLR business, I was happy to share all my thoughts and launched Become a PLR Writer, and then a specialized newsletter for these new business owners called Professional PLR Provider. Helping others do what I do certainly made me bring my A game and I learned along the way too!

* My next idea to help people with their content needs came about after I saw how long it took some, including new PLR writers, to write articles. It’s not that they were terrible writers, they lacked confidence or couldn’t come up with ideas. Easy Article Starters were born (they’re kind of like outlines and half-written articles) and have been helping people since then.

* The more I learn about marketing and the more the whole online world evolves, the more opportunities I find to assist other marketers. After hearing “I have a Facebook page for my small business, but what do I post?” several times, I saw a reason to create Fresh FB Content. These packs are 50 posts each in specific niches. I limit these to just 10 licenses each. At the time of this writing, there are House, Home Interior, Landscaping, Crafter, Foodie, Hair Care, and Gardening available. I will be adding more and I do listen to requests.

* Since I’ve become interested in photography and I started a separate physical business with that, I figured I could spread that craft into my business of helping with others’ online needs. So I’ve been slowly putting together some graphic packs with images you can use on your blog, on Facebook, in your emails, in your Squidoo lenses, etc.

I know this post looks like it’s all about ME ME ME, but my intention is to show that my successes come from creating what people want and need. Where are the holes in your area of expertise? What can you do for your online world that comes easy for you and is oh-so-helpful for others?

Jimmy Brown, the father of PLR (I’d say grandfather but he’s younger than I am), has found ways to plug some holes that I haven’t touched. He’s got this big Package o’ Help called Contentaire. Besides helping with the usual articles, ebooks and reports, this package gives assistance on some of the trickier things:
webinars
press releases
affiliate tools
sales letters
newsletters
power point presentations
emails
landing pages
podcasts

Providing what people need is very rewarding in more ways than one. Have you ever created a product based on questions or requests?

    Wow Peggy! You are one busy woman … I bet you don’t have too much time to spend moaning about your empty nest! I love your stuff too, it is all very good.

    I am finally creating my first paid product, in the health field … weight and fitness, and I’m having my struggles. I was thinking last night about asking your advice and then here you are in my mailbox!

    I’ve got a few pages of good information, written with the help of some good PLR and I have some neat graphics but I’m stymied about my presentation … how to upload the graphics to Open Office and such things. I have so much information on my hard drive, but in order to save some time looking through everything I wonder if you could point me to something you’ve written that would clarify formatting for me.

    Thank you Peggy,

    Fran

    Thanks, Fran. And congrats on doing your first paid product! :) Presentation is the creative fun part, but it can be very frustrating the first time. Is it going to be a pdf ebook? Is your computer a Mac or PC?

    Thanks for sharing this insight into how your business has developed, and especially how you have bent it to match the needs of your community. It has given me ideas to think about – thank you!

    Hi Moira,
    I’ve found if I go through my online dealings with eyes open to the problems and questions, it helps me come up with products to create. That’s not to say all of my products have come about this way, just the ones that seem to do the best. :D

    Thanks!

    Well, Peggy, as far as I can tell you’ve been spending way too much time skiing ;) . Only kidding. It’s obvious that you have an incredible ability to crank out great content. Someone was just asking me today about PLR for social updates and of course I told them about you.

    It’s really impressive to see all you’ve done when you have it written out like that, isn’t it?

    So get out there in the snow and enjoy. You deserve it!

    It was great hearing about all you’ve done. You’ve got a lot of really unique ways of helping people with their content. I hope we’ll see more Easy Article Starters in the future!

    Peggy,

    It’s so interesting to see how your business has evolved…and that’s the way it should be done. That is, one step at a time and expanding little by little. You’re definitely not a quitter, but an achiever! Way to go!

    Haha Sharyn. It does seem like almost every time we’re emailing I’m up skiing, doesn’t it? I could argue that you’re always off touring college campuses…

    I’m impressed with how far you’ve come in a relatively short period of time. Keep up the good work!

    Hello Rhonda,
    I’m glad you found it interesting. I like reading people’s stories, but I’m not always sure they want to read mine.

    I’d love to read yours too, I’m sure it’s been a beautiful winding path. :)

    Wow Peggy… where have I been all this time?

    I have bought many of your PLR products, but I had absolutely no idea that you had so many irons in the fire!

    I’m off to check out some of these I just opened in new tabs…. busy, busy entrepreneur!

    Hi Helene,

    Obviously I don’t market myself well enough! lol. :)

    Seriously though, it’s true. I’d much rather spend my time creating content that helps people than on telling people about it. Makes no sense! The more people that know, the more I can help, right?

  13. Mitch Mitchell on April 29th, 2013 11:17 am

    I’m so glad I can write so that I’ve never had to purchase a PLR package, but I did create a couple of them and tried to market them for awhile. I guess the subject matter I chose wasn’t all that enticing as I didn’t get a single buyer but later I was able to use those packages for myself as blog posts so it worked out well.

    You’re right though, it really is all about content that’s compelling enough to bring people to one’s website or blog. After all, look what brought me here today. :-)

    Great article!!! I have been working online for over 12 years now and have been doing PLR for the past 5 years. It is hard to find quality content when you are first starting out and surprisingly people online lie about what they are selling!! Can you believe that?? hahaha Nope not like the commercial where you can’t put anything on the internet if it wasn’t true, if that were the case I WOULD be a French model!! But on a serious note, yes, content is key, you do have to be careful what you are buying and from whom and if you do your homework and do have the great content you should then you should do just fine. Thanks again for the info and tips!!

    Hi Mitch,

    I’m glad to hear you’re able to write well. It’s certainly a helpful skill to have! Some people who are good writers buy PLR just to give them a jumping off point. They might take the info in a PLR article and turn it into a top 10 tip.

    It’s good that you figured out that you could use the PLR you wrote. I always keeps one license for myself in case I want (and sometimes do) start a new blog, or want to use the material to turn it into a report or something.

    I’m so glad you stopped by! :)

    Hey Ron,

    It’s good to see you here! You’ve got a good point – it’s important to know and trust who you buy from online because PLR is not all created equal.

    Now I’m picturing you as a French model… Bonjour! :D

    Hey Peggy, contratulations for your business. I am a year old blogger, and though I am not that old into the field I do have gained some recognition. I haven’t yet created any product based on people’s questions or requests, but I do hope to do so in the near future.
