Let’s get to the series. Over the past couple of days I’ve been going over a few aspects of myths about duplicate content and how to rewrite (or not rewrite) the articles.
You can take a look at them below:
Today I’m going to go over three ways that you can rewrite your done-for-you content. I’d try all the tips first and then see which ones work best for you. Keep what you like and toss the rest.
3 Ways to Spice Up Your Done-For-Your Content By Adding To It
As I’ve talked about before you don’t have to rewrite all of your content and in fact, one of the easiest ways to use PLR is to spice it up and add more to it.
The first thing you’ll want to do with ANY pre-written content that you get is to read it. You’ll save time by doing this as your first step.
Sometimes you’ll read a few sentences and think you know what the main points are going to be because that is how you’d do it, so you decide to skip reading the entire thing. Then halfway through you realize it isn’t the structure you’d use. You’ve already started and now you have two choices – leave it the way it is or restructure it.
I’ve done this before and sometimes the article doesn’t flow the way that I’d want them too. Then I get frustrated because I’ve put time and effort into it. So learn from my mistakes and read your content first. 🙂
Add a Unique Intro & Conclusion
If you change nothing else, make sure you add in a unique intro and conclusion to the article. This helps give it your unique “voice” even though you’re using PLR.
Writing an intro and conclusion is a lot easier if you’ve read it before you start writing. By doing this you’ll understand what the content is going over. Then you’ll be able to write your take on it.
Add a Personal Story
If you have any personal story that relates to the content then add it in! Even if you leave everything else the same as it was, this will make it totally “you”!
Some examples: if you’re writing about how to blog, include a story about how you got started. If you’re writing about healthy eating tips, include some examples of what you eat!
People love a good story and this will help them relate to you. When they relate to you, they’ll read more on your blog.
Add in Your Opinion
If you have an opinion about what’s written in the PLR article then don’t be afraid to put it out there. This is especially useful if you are using the PLR article on a semi-personal blog or website and you always want your personality to shine through.
Readers often love content that’s controversial with strong opinion – but remember who your target market is before claiming anything too outrageous! 🙂
Would you like more training on how to use PLR? I’ve included 3 training programs from people who use pre-written content in their business models , so take a look:

Rewriting PLR is a skill, but once you’ve got it down you can earn money by putting to use the done-for-you products you’ve got! It does take time, so schedule it on your calendar every week to create products, blog posts and engage your audience with pre-written content.
Have a great and productive day!
