Well, a rant is coming…a big one. So if you’re not in the mood to listen to me bitch and complain, you probably don’t want to read this article. I can assure you that it will be less than pleasant. Having said that, I will now begin my rant for the day…pure laziness.
Just recently, I released a product that I sold with PLR rights. That means that the person can sell the product as his own…make any changes and essentially do anything he wants with it. PLR products are an easy way to make money online. The work is essentially done for you. All you have to do is make some changes and you’ve got your own product.
Well, today, I got a solo ezine email and it just happened to be for my PLR product. I figured, great. Let me see how this guy is promoting it and what changes he made.
I started reading the ad and I recognized it immediately. It was the same ad that I used to sell the darn thing…word for word. I couldn’t believe it. The guy didn’t even bother to change one word of the ad. I then looked at the sales page. Again, it was just as I provided it. Not one change, oh except for the price…which was a total joke.
Okay, let me make this as clear as I possibly can. If you are going to buy PLR products to sell as your own, you MUST make some changes…any changes. If you just sell the product as is, you are nothing more than a glorified affiliate. The product isn’t your own. It’s the same product that most of the other people are going to be selling. Why?
Because people are lazy…plain and simple. This is the norm. This is what you will find with anything in life, let alone Internet marketing. People will put in the least amount of effort that they can to get something done. I have my theories as to why, but I’ll leave those for another time.
It doesn’t even surprise me anymore when I see stuff like this. What WOULD surprise me is finding somebody actually putting some effort into their business. That would shock the hell out of me. See, the few who do put in an effort are the ones who really get somewhere. I work 14 hours a day at times. I do it because I want to be better than everybody else.
I’m wondering how many more of these ads I’m going to find with the same wording, with the same sales page, with, most likely, the same product without one word being changed.
The only thing different is the price.
And some of those aren’t even worth mentioning.
