If you’re good at writing and you need to make some quick cash, you might try this method.
First, choose a niche that’s hot. Internet Marketing, Weight Loss, Health, Self-Help, Finance, Etc. are usually all good topics. You’re looking for something that has a lot of demand as well as a lot of marketers working to satisfy that demand, because what you’re going to do is write PLR.
(Just in case there is anyone out there who doesn’t know what PLR is, it’s Private Label Rights material that can be used by the people who purchase it to make their own products or to use as they choose within the rights you assign to them at the time of purchase.)
The next step is of course to create your content, and here’s the important caveat: Do NOT create junk. Write quality pieces that you are proud to offer others and that they in turn will be happy to sell to their customers or use on their websites as their own.
You might write a series of articles on the topic – 10 to 20 is good. Better yet, create a report and package it with a dozen articles.
Next, write a sales page to sell your content. Be sure to incorporate an actual sample of your writing into the sales letter, so that your prospects can see for themselves that your writing is of high quality and interesting to read.
Now get your PLR sales letter in front of as many eyeballs as possible. If you have a mailing list, start with them since these are people who already know and trust you. Consider running a ‘dime’ sale, in which the price goes up a specified amount each time a purchase is made. It doesn’t have to be 10 cents, it could be any amount you choose. Start low to get some quick sales and testimonials. Having the price continually go up forces people to make a decision right then and there to buy your PLR, thus increasing your sales. And since you are starting at a low price ($5 to $10 is good) your offer becomes an easy one to sell.
Next, consider running a Warrior Special Offer, again allowing the price to increase with each sale. If you are not yet a member of the Warrior Forum, you’ll need to join and make some posts to be eligible to run your own WSO. It does cost $40 to do a WSO, but if you’ve got a good product and letter you should recoup this money in the first hour or two of your offer.
Third, find yourself some affiliates or joint venture partners. You can do this through the Warrior Forum itself, or through Google. Search for marketers who are selling other people’s PLR and send them yours free of charge, asking them to look at it and hopefully promote it for you. Offer them at least 50% commission, and if you’re able to, add a backend offer to increase both their commissions and yours. The backend doesn’t have to be your own original product – it could be something related to your offer for which you own the resell rights.
Yes, all of this can be done in a weekend. Do well and you may earn far more than $500, especially if you continue to promote it in the days and weeks to come.
