PLR ATM is open. I purchased Tiff’s new product within hours of the website going “live”… which was very late (wee hours) and started to go through it.
I sort of jumped around, just to get a “feel” for the product. (not recommended when you are going to dig in a start learning).
I will be “digging in” and getting the PLR ATM Review started in a day or so.
One of the bonuses included is an interview between Mike Long (Bring The Fresh) and Tiff where they discussed some ideas about how to start a PLR business.
I watched the video “twice”. This bonus video is about an hour in length – I finally had to turn my laptop off… a girl has got to get her beauty sleep.
Mike Long is going to be doing a case study with a new PLR website. (In fact- he put the website up live and it was ranked on page one of Google in less than 24 hours). It’s fascinating to watch (and learn) how he is taking the PLR ATM course and using it in combination with some of the SEO techniques that are taught in Bring The Fresh.
One of the challenges I had when I started to “brainstorm” about a PLR business is the question of topics. What topics or niches should I write about?
- Did I want to concentrate on a specific niche?
- Should I leave it wide open and write about any topic?
- Should I focus on “Hot Niche Topics”… or should I stick with “Evergreen Niche Topics”.
Am I over thinking and making something a big deal when it’s really not?
I am trying to think about this “Smart”. Starting a PLR business is NOT like starting a micro-niche blog. Micro-niche blogs are part of my “current” business. A PLR business is a new business and needs to be treated with more care in the beginning stages – otherwise I might end up with a Hot Mess and give up.
A PLR Business Needs A Plan Just Like Any Business
My problem (over thinking? ) is a puzzle I needed to work out. First I needed to decide if I’m going to concentrate on a specific niche or if I should go wide and cater to every possible niche I could think of?
Target Specific Niche
- It’s easier to get ranked in Google if you have a targeted niche.
- The topic can be so broad that I would still be able to offer a ton of PLR packages.
- The niche would have to be an “Evergreen” niche.
Cater To Everyone PLR Business
- It’s harder to get ranked in Google – (not really that much harder).
- I can take PLR writing requests on any subject.
- Over time – the variety of topics would allow the sight to snowball into a large income producing business.
- I could have PLR article packs, ebooks, sales pages, blog posts etc. in “Hot Niche” and “Evergreen Niches”.
An example target niche plr site: http://dogplr.com/
My brainstorming just went into overdrive.
I was over on my favorite domain registration service NameCheap and got really excited. I found at least 20 domains that would be great for targeted plr niches. All were .com and all were one word niches.
Because I know that “ranking” high in Google is easier with domain names that are an exact match to the keyword search… I was on overload. I could have spent $100’s on domain names.
I even thought about going into the “site flipping” with these domains. I could just resell them – or I could actually build the website and then flip it. But… that’s an entirely different business and I shouldn’t be getting ahead of myself. Been to that water hole and about drowned myself.
After taking a break and having a good talk with myself – I decided “Against” a PLR business in a specific niche. I thought about doing both… but in the end, that is also not a good business plan for me.
I’m going to stick with the “Any Topic Goes” PLR Business model.
I had another glaring problem (again – I was over thinking).
Imagine that you have spent time – effort – and money setting up a PLR business website and all you have is one pack of articles to sell.
I have no idea why I thought this was a problem. You can start a PLR business with one product – because you will be adding new products often. So what if you only have one article pack to sell? How cool will it be when you sell your first pack? I got over myself.
Niche Topic Ideas
One thing you might be wondering is what topics you should be writing about. I’m never at a loss for niche topic ideas, but I don’t know if the ideas are good for PLR. If I put out the effort to write the articles… and they didn’t sell… it’s not much of a business.
Should I stick with topics that Tiffany recommends? At least when the business is in it’s infant stages? Topics such as Health, Pets, Internet Marketing, Relationships etc.? PLR ATM talks about focusing on popular topics that sell well.
Or should I let go of the worry and do my best to choose niche topics that I’m comfortable with and get the packs done. Not wanting to put more pressure on myself than necessary… I chose to go with my instincts and write “what I know”.
I can worry about focusing on “Hot Niche Topics” later.
The PLR ATM Bonus for Tiffany’s own list of customer requested topics was a real eye opener:
Going through that list let me know which topics to start with – ones that marketers are already looking for.
I feel like I can go and work on the PLR ATM review with a more focused “brain”. What do you think? Are you over thinking anything that I can help you with? Leave a reply below and we will work through it together.
p.s. I spent some time writing about the difference between a Hot or Evergreen Niche Topic today.
