Really well, and Really fast!
First of all, PLR is the acronym for Private Label
Rights.. which means that IF YOU HAVE PAID FOR THE PRIVILEGE
then you can claim that YOU were the author.
Maybe you want to break into writing by using PLR, but
you are worried that someone will "catch" you at it, expose
you, and maybe even PROSECUTE you. Well, I do know one
writer that sold an article to Tale Wins, and it turned out
the original article was copyrighted material. Over
the phone I convinced the real owner that the writer selling
to me probably hadn't realized the material had been stolen
because the material was PLR. She was so fascinated
with picking up a process entirely new to her that she let
us off the hook.
So, yes my friend.. you do want to rewrite the PLR.
In fact, you want to change it up, mix it up, make it YOUR
material. It is never a good idea to simply put your
name on any PLR you buy. That's what newbies do.
Inevitably the rumor starts running around that you are just
using PLR. That won't happen if you have changed it
There are several ways to do this mechanically - or with
software, and you can find offers for helps that way in
virtually any other writer-oriented magazine online.
Here are the steps I do take to make rewriting fast,
good, and salable.
- I study the material's message for a time, and
usually change the audience it is written to. Maybe instead of writing to men I
will write to women. Be advised that I do much more
than change words. If I start with a 10,000 word book
then it will be at least 30,000 when I finish -- with my
research -- and adding my own personal experiences, gathering
information from the experts and resources that I have
gathered over the years. Whole chapters are moved to
meet the needs of my new audience and I answer the questions
they are asking. Yes, this takes time, but when I
finish, it is MY book!
- For small articles I will rearrange the sequence of
the paragraphs, putting one of the lower placed
paragraphs in first place.
- I rearrange the sequence of at least 1 of the
sentence in each paragraph.
- I rearrange the structure of at least 1 sentence in
each paragraph. "He cheerfully did everything for
her that we were supposed to in her old age, and he cost
her far less." becomes "In her old age, he cheerfully
did everything for her that we were supposed to, and he
cost her far less."
- I break up long sentences into 2, 3, 4. If
suitable I expand these new, separate sentences with my
own research or experiences.
- If the PLR is written in British then I run it through my
English converter that I made myself. "Colour" becomes
"color" -- for example. I have it set up to make
changes for most of the British spellings.
- I suggest that you run the final version through
Copyscape. Eliminate or thoroughly rewrite any
section that gets tagged.
Just to make sure that you start off on a fresh foot, let's slide over to
for some help with churning out rewriting PLR material
in a hurry.
- Select translate from English to some other
language, perhaps Spanish.
click the TRANSLATE button.
- Copy the results then REVERSE THE ORDER. Translate
from XXX back into English.
- Click the Translate button again. Copy your results
and paste them into your work. Then copy the English version of this article and
paste it in the first window instead of the original
- If you don't see any, or enough changes, try a
different language medium, Hindu for example.
- Copy the new article into your word processor and
clean up any rubbish that is showing up. It will
usually be pretty obvious.
- Even a ten thousand word article will take less
than 5 minutes and you will look like a hero.
How big a document can you put in? I have yet to
find an end.
