PLR For SmartDD LITE

On Tuesday 16th September, I’ll be making available 10 Private Label Rights (PLR) licences for SmartDD LITE.

The PLR licence will allow you to do what you like with SmartDD LITE other than sell PLR yourself.

Interested?

Well…  How much should I charge?  Leave a comment and let me know.

If I don’t get any comments I’ll choose a price depending on what I believe it’s worth.  I already have a price in mind that I believe is fair, but I’d like to see what you think.

The sale will be first come first served.

How To Turn PLR Into Cash

I’d like to share something with you today that I spent thousands learning. Literally.

I joined a mentoring programme that cost me $6,000 to learn this.

Well… okay I learned a lot of other stuff too, but this really stuck with me as I had one of those “aha!” moments when I was introduced to the concept.

Here it is. It’s in two easy to digest learning chunks.

Ready?

Okay…

#1 – A project to create and launch a new product should last no longer than 30 days.

#2 – Only work on ONE project at a time, and focus ALL your effort on that one project. No distractions.

That’s it. If you stick to that, then you’ll start to see revenue after 30 days.

For most people, doing just those two things will give them more success than they’ve ever had.

Do you think this would apply to you too?

It certainly did for me. In fact this was a turning point for me when I learned those two things.

Of course there’s more than just those two things to learn here, and I think it’s better if I illustrate what I mean by them. Let’s see how things can very rapidly go wrong if you don’t follow those two simple ideas.

Imagine you had 2 great project ideas, and you decided to start work on them both at the same time.

Day 1 – You spend a couple of enthusiastic hours on the first project, and then find you run out of steam. It happens to everybody.

So you take an hours break (or two) and then decide to do some work on the second one.

Off you start, just as enthusiastically, and then find you quickly run out of steam on that one too.

So you take another break and decide to leave any further work until tomorrow.

Day 2 – Lots of distractions today (we all get them) and you take a look at both projects for 30 minutes, but don’t really get anything done.

Day 3 – You spend some time thinking about the two projects, but can’t decide what to do with them.

A few days pass…

Day 8 – You decide to pull your finger out and get some work done on those two projects.

You sit down, look at the first project, read through what you’ve already done and decide you don’t like it. So you start again from the beginning. It takes you 30 minutes just to get into the right frame of mind, and before you know it, two hours have gone by and you’ve hardly done anything new at all.

You now feel a bit fed up, and look at the second project. You decide not to make any changes as it just wastes time, you’ll go with what you already have. It takes you another 30 minutes or so to get into the “zone” for this second project, and you decide to take a break.

You get back an hour later and realise you’re not feeling too enthusiastic about it all right now, and you’ll look at it tomorrow or the next day.

Day 14 – In a burst of productivity you manage to get in a good solid five hours of work on the first project.

You feel really pleased with yourself and decide to order some web graphics for the sales page.

You decide to have a go at working on the second project, but it takes you an hour to get to grips with it all again as you can’t remember much of what you were thinking when you first came up with the idea and now you’re beginning to lose faith in the product idea altogether.

You promise to spend some serious time tomorrow looking at it.

Day 17 – You look at the second project for an hour and then do another hours work on it. You’re not really any further forward, but you feel you’ve “done a bit”.

You’re getting a bit fed up with this idea now.

Day 21 – OMG! You’ve had a GREAT idea. This will be a *killer* product. You can’t stop thinking about it, and sit down and write loads of notes while it’s still fresh in your mind.

THIS IS IT!

While thinking about the product, you realise it’s really TWO products, so you write notes that separate the two ideas out. This is great stuff, and you’ve been missing this enthusiasm in the other two projects, which you now realise weren’t so great after all.

Day 22 – You’ve got everything down, but you’re not sure what to do next and where to go. You decide to think about it some more and leave any further work a couple of days.

Day 26 – You look at the two new projects. Nothing happens and no new work gets done.

Day 27 – The graphics you purchased for the first project come back from the designer. You’d forgotten about those.

You like them so much you decide that you don’t want to waste them, and that the first project wasn’t so bad as you thought it was. You do some work on it and realise it’s actually quite a good idea and you’ve had some new thoughts about it.

You do a couple of hours work and then spend 3 hours making a 5 minute video for the sales page.

Day 30 – Having gotten bored and come to a full stop again, you start to look at the third project again. Nothing. So you look at the second project. A few ideas come to mind and you do a little work on it before stopping.

***

And that’s how it goes. You’ve taken 30 days and you have zero income for your efforts.

The reasons are (I hope) clear.

#1 – You didn’t set yourself a clear time frame for a project.

#2 – You were working on multiple projects at the same time and you were unfocussed.

Now I’m sure you’d agree with me that 30 days is plenty of time to put something together and create a product. If you’re not sure about that, then I can tell you absolutely that it is.

I did an exercise nearly 12 months ago that I called “7 Products In 7 Days”. I failed to achieve my target of 7 products, but guess what? I created THREE in 7 days.

And as someone pointed out afterwards, I didn’t just create the 3 products, I also did the sales copy and put the web sites together too in that time.

If I’d left the sales copy and web sites out, then I could have achieved the orginal target easily.

That’s what can happen when you have FOCUS, and only work on one project at a time.

Now here’s something I have to point out to you. I didn’t do those 3 products from scratch. I used PLR (Private Label Rights) material for 2 of them, and the other one was work I already had sitting on my hard drive that I decided was a product in its own right, so I released it.

Two of those products I gave away, and have been very popular as list builders, the other I sold for $5, and I’m still getting sales nearly a year later. In fact the whole exercise was very fruitful for me.

And I only scratched the surface.

If you’ve never used PLR to create a product, then I have to ask you a simple question.

Why not?

Let’s go a bit further and kick it up a gear. How would you like to learn how to make a few thousand in less than 30 days?

If you’ve never done anything like this before, then I can tell you now that it’s like alchemy.

You take base material and turn it into gold.

IF you have the right formula to follow…

Well I can point you in the right direction.

I can show you where you can discover the path to being able to replicate this method and create one or more new products each and every month. AND THEN be able to immediately turn those new products into money.

It really IS a kind of magic.

And I know someone who is performing this alchemy on a regular basis.

A guy by the name of Richelo Killian (pronounced Reesh-uh-loo) is now selling this magic for what I believe is a steal. Remember I paid $6,000 to learn this stuff about 18 months ago, which was money WELL spent for the hundred thousand dollars or so I’ve earned since then just using these methods.

Now I KNOW some people are going to say “it’s too expensive”. And ironically, THOSE people are the very ones who need this method the most.

Well, for the inevitable few who would say they can’t afford it, Richelo actually gives you his 16 step method on his web site for FREE.

He doesn’t give you the *detail* for free mind you, but if you already have an idea of what you need to do, you can go get the same step by step method he uses just by visiting his web site.

If you then want to take it further, you can purchase his entire 12 session course on how to do it.

Come on…

If you knew how to take a PLR product that you had full rights to amend and call your own and then turn it into cash in a few days, wouldn’t you do it?

Wouldn’t you be doing it already?

You owe it to yourself to spend the few minutes it will take you to ponder what Richelo has to offer. Especially if you’ve had the same kind of problems that so many other people seem to have in getting started online.

Before you go take a look, there’s one last thing I want to point out to you, as I think Richelo could and should actually sell this one bonus item on its own.

He calls the value priceless, but I think I could actually put a price on the worth of this one bonus as worth at least hundreds of dollars a month. I think he’s crazy even offering this as part of the package – it really is a case of over delivering.

Every two weeks, he holds a live Q&A call where you can ask him ANYTHING related to either PLR OR Internet Marketing in general. The call time is from 2 to 4 hours, and if needs be, he runs it even longer.

I REALLY hope you can see the huge value in that.

Listening to questions from like minded people as yourself, and hearing the answers back is worth a small fortune. While you may have questions of your own you can ask, I’ve personally found it invaluable to hear what might be troubling other people, and what the solution is.

It really is a KILLER bonus. And it’s not the only one.

I strongly urge you to go look at the offer, I really don’t think I could provide much better if I did it myself, and like I said, you OWE it to yourself to check it out.

Making PLR Pay

Just how hard is it to turn PLR into PLR (private label rights into “producing lotta riches”)?

Well, if you’ve never done it you might be forgiven for thinking that it can be very hard. After all, you have to be a bit of a writer – don’t you?

No, I don’t think so. I think it’s perfectly possible to do it well if you can speak normally. You can speak normally, can’t you? You really *don’t* need to be a good writer.

Here’s the thing: Private Label Rights materials pay off, because they do what most of us are not good at doing. They get us started. It’s a big task to start with a blank page and try to think of things to say. That’s a big task even for professional writers! They have a fancy name for when they can’t do it – “writer’s block”.

The fact is that most people find it easier to look at what’s wrong with something that already exists. Then they can change it, bit by bit. Finally, they have a complete article, or product, ready to sell. Let me give you a little test, to prove it to you.

I want you to read the next few lines and *in your head* work out how you could say it better. Actually say it to yourself in your head – or even out loud if you prefer.

“When time comes to making a whole bunch of money but you cannot think what it is you should do to do it, you should spend some time on your own to think about what it is you should do and then you’ll come up with a plan to do it.”

Go ahead – fix that in your head. You don’t have to type anything.

Did you actually try that little exercise? Did your version sound better than mine? It should – mine was awful. Deliberately awful, but still awful.

So, what’s the point I’m making?

*You* just edited and fixed an entire paragraph.

How many paragraphs do you think you have to edit and fix to get a full article all spruced up? It could be as few as 8 or 10.

It’s really not as hard as you think, is it? Here’s where human nature comes into play. If I tell you to edit 600 words that sounds like a lot. If I tell you to edit 10,000 words your brain will flip! 10,000 is a *lot* of words. But the reality is that you don’t edit 10,000 words. You edit a few at a time. So instead of thinking about editing a full article, or ebook, think about editing just 1 sentence.

Honestly, doesn’t that sound a lot better? A lot easier, too?

You see when you’re faced with a big task, you really can’t do it all at once. But for so many of us our brain thinks that we *have* to do it all in one go. But because we get to make the rules, we can take 2 goes – or 50 if you want.

Will it take longer doing it that way? Well, not really, because if you get overwhelmed by the full job you’ll never do it – so it will take forever. And just the fact you won’t feel stressed out should help you work faster too.

If you have some plr articles sitting around, gathering dust, here’s a suggestion for you.

1) Commit to editing 1 article.

2) Allow yourself the luxury of editing *only* 1 sentence a day. This is a strict rule! Do not do 2 sentences, even if you feel like doing it. Do 1 sentence and then save your article, ready for tomorrow. Strictly 1 sentence a day – no cheating!

3) Each day, open your article and continue where you left off. Edit another sentence. On some days it might take you literally 15 seconds to make the changes. Nobody on this planet is so short of time that they can’t find 15 seconds.

4) As you continue, remind yourself that you have less to do now than you did yesterday. Each day you have even less to do than the day before. The job is getting smaller every day and you still only have to edit 1 sentence today.

5) When you reach the final sentence, edit it and save your article. Then, look back over the full article and see just how much you’ve edited – more than you thought you could do when you began. And you did it all 1 sentence at a time.

For fun, compare the original article and your edited article. Take some pride in the fact you did it. You edited an article.

6) Submit your article to at least one of the many article directories.

Congratulations!

But let’s also be realistic here. You wouldn’t want to work at that speed if you had 100 articles to edit. But always, always, start with 1 article and 1 sentence.

My guess is that somewhere along the way you couldn’t help yourself and you edited more than 1 sentence. By telling yourself you were only ‘allowed’ 1 sentence, you made it irresistible to do more. That’s just human nature. So always tell yourself you’ll edit 1 sentence. When you do more – and you will – you can reward yourself for doing better than you committed to.

That’s just a little trick that makes it easier to do the work without freaking out. Here’s another one that might work for you. Let me explain it with a story.

I hate swimming. I mean the mind-numbing up and down, boring repetition. But I love the feeling I get afterwards. So for me I set my target of say 50 laps. Then I count down from 50. In other words every lap I do I have a reducing balance. So in my head I see ahead of me 50,49,48,47,46…

If I count up, it takes ages before I seem to have done any significant numbers. So counting up goes 1,2,3,4,5. Doesn’t feel like much progress, but counting down I know it just keeps getting easier. It’s easier to do 40 laps than it is 42 laps – that’s a given. So my routine just keeps getting easier to achieve. That works for me – try it and might work for you. If you have 12 paragraphs to edit just count down after each one. 12,11,10,9,8 and so on. If it doesn’t work for you just stick with the 1 sentence at a time tactic.

If you’re writing material from scratch it’s really just the same. Commit to write say 1 paragraph and when you’ve done that, stop for the day. I guarantee you that you won’t be able to stop after 1 paragraph most of the time. But the fact you have given yourself permission to do so takes all the pressure off your brain.

To show you exactly what I mean I’ve created a video showing how I edit a plr article live, following these rules. You can view it at

Terrific Traffic Tactics

Traffic.
Amin Motin
The lifeblood of every website. Without traffic of some kind, your website is the loneliest place in the world. And you’re not going to make much money off it at all.

So how can you get people to your website?

Well, when you start looking into this question you’ll see that there are dozens of techniques, but mastering all of them will send your head spinning.

Let me talk to you about one technique which will not only bring you traffic, but it will also make you some money into the bargain.  It’s called…  Selling PLR.

Huh?

Sell some PLR material. You’ll make some money and you’ll get some traffic, too. This technique works with unrestricted PLR material, so make sure you have completely unrestricted rights before trying this.

Ok, let me put some flesh on the bones here because there’s more to it than just selling a bit of PLR. What you have to do is take note of a basic human habit. The habit is of doing as little as possible. It’s human nature the world over and it’s key to this traffic generation tactic.

You know that many people are basically lazy and don’t go out of their way to look for extra work. And you probably also know that PLR material is popular because it removes a lot of the effort required to get a product up and running. So you combine those two things with your own self-promotion.

In every PLR product you sell put a list of resources somewhere in each element of the package. In the readme.txt for articles, or the appendix of an ebook, for example. In the list of resources make sure you have valuable and useful links, such as for Winzip, or WinRAR, Adobe Acrobat Reader and so on. And then intersperse links for your own products, sites, or services.  Don’t hype them up too much. Just put them in as part of the recommended resources.

By doing it that way you give more credibility to your own sites because they’re not shown as blatant plugs with a mini sales page. They’re shown as what they are, valuable resources.

For anyone with a bit of graphic ability you can go even further. You can edit the graphics you have in the PLR material to put a discreet mention of your url in the footer graphic of ready made websites, for example.

I can tell you right now that of the people who take any action with the PLR material you sell, the vast majority won’t take the time to go through it, edit it all, change the graphics, re-word articles and so on.

In fact many of them won’t even put their own name on any sales pages!

They’re far more likely to put it up as it is, or sell it on to others.  That means that everyone who buys your PLR material is actively promoting you and your sites.

If they sell the material on to someone else, the whole cycle begins again.

You won’t get huge percentages of people turning into customers that way, but you will have a growing network of referral points that will build steadily over time for you. And if you choose something fairly timeless you could be seeing benefits for years to come.

The best part is that you make some money doing it.

Here’s a rough guide for how useful this is for you. Of every 100 people who read this post, maybe (just maybe) 1 or 2 will take some action on it.  They will reap the benefits of the technique.

The other 99 out of every 100 will be the group that ends up doing the promoting for savvy marketers. And they’ll be paying those savvy marketers to do so.

One thing you should absolutely do is provide good value on the sites you promote this way. If you include worthless sites in the resources section you’ll find your credibility drops every time a new person sees them.

You only benefit if you genuinely offer something worth having so don’t be tempted to promote sites with no value to them.

Next time you get hold of an unrestricted PLR package, be one of the .5% that will actually do anything with it and add some suitable links of your own, before reselling rights to it.

And if you really want to turn it up a notch, why not include a list of places where your customers can sell it on easily?

Make it simple for everyone, beginners included, to make some money with your PLR package. They’ll be back for more before you know it and you’ll be getting your sites and services in front of new potential customers.

PLR Reports – Strange Complaints

Well, not a great deal of interest in this nickel sale, but personally I think it’s one of the best I’ve done. I think it may be the cut and paste sales copy I’ve used rather than write my own. It’s certainly food for thought.

Lesson for me: Stick with my own sales copy.

When it’s over I’ll be selling the bundle for $47 with a substantially re-designed sales page of my own, and I’ll likely give away my own personal versions of the reports edited to my own style as a bonus for one or more of my other products. Master resale rights PDFs only of course, not PLR.

Lesson for you: Re-use material wherever possible.

Here’s a strange thing. I had two people unsubscribe from my blog notify list and write to me complaining about this sale, but not about what you might expect – it certainly took me by surprise.

The gist of the complaints were that they weren’t impressed that I was selling unrestricted PLR to these reports at such a low price. And that I was giving PLR a bad name.

Well, that’s the point of a 24 hour sale for your subscribers isn’t it? Sell it so cheaply that it’s almost being given away, then afterwards, sell it at a price that reflects its true worth. People like you for it (usually), and will remain subscribers (usually).

PLR material is very valuable if used in the right way, many people just don’t know how to use it though. I guess that’s why those people are complaining about the low price – they know its true worth and feel that I’ve devalued it. Not so. All I’ve done is share something at a low price now that will hopefully bring me in more traffic as the people that use it build their lists and promote my products.

You build your internet business and hopefully I’ll get to build mine too.

Yes I DO know the true value of PLR – I’m a member of 2 monthly PLR sites, and glad of it!

Anyway, last chance at this price. Today at 3.00pm, the sale ends and the price on the bundle of PLR reports goes up to $47.00.
