Hi everyone! I’m finally wrapping up my review of Peggy Baron’s Become a PLR Writer. Let’s move on with the final sections and then I’ll summarize below what my thoughts are on whether or not this is a good investment.
I’m on to the PLR Step By Step section, which offers us a checklist and detailed explanation of each element. On #5 (page 36) I’m confused as to why you’d want to do the latter step if it’s PLR, but the checklist is good. I’m now at a point when I know the steps but every now and then I’ll forget one myself. I just realized the other day I had run a WSO and told my list about a large pack but I never put it on my PLR Mini Mart! LOL!
Next I’m on the Grow Your List section. This is SO important! And she gives a neat template you can use for your squeeze page. LOVE her miscellaneous point on the bottom of page 40 – very true! You have to respect this situation or people won’t buy from you.
Now I’m on to Marketing Your PLR. The ideas are all good, but there needs to be more detail. IE: Bottom of page 42, first bold “thing” you can do. I want some examples – I don’t want to go buy another report from someone else. One thing – on page 44 I agree with the WSO mention but it’s hard for people to tell what’s a successful PLR WSO. Some of my VERY best sellers have not ONE single comment on them. LOL! I think this goes back to the sticky point above.
Peggy lists a very good compilation of marketing ideas here.
On to the Q&A portion now. Wow page 48 has a VERY nice over the top gift on it. And her conclusion is very heartfelt and realistic. This last page is why I wanted to review this product – it’s the type of person Peggy is.
Okay so let’s bottom line it, shall we? Con first (because there’s only one)!
Peggy could flesh out some things here and there. I know sometimes this can cause a guide on one topic to become a monster, but I like to think, whenever I’m creating a course, that it’s a stand alone product.
While some things could stand a little more detail, overall, she’s given us all of the steps – and many I hadn’t even thought of myself! This is why Become a PLR Writer made such a perfect pairing for my PLR ATM course. You’ll find plenty of tips in there that I hadn’t put in my course – stuff I myself am working on implementing right now!
She is VERY honest in what to expect starting this business, yet she’s encouraging and motivational in how to go about it.
Become a PLR Writer included some wonderful bonus items that I did not have in my own course. Or if we have two similar items, they’re different enough to make for two good unique ones.
Now Peggy also has a cool monthly newsletter that goes out with her PLR course (another thing I don’t have)! It’s called Professional PLR Provider Newsletter and I think this is a great thing to have – not only does it include more tips and strategies, but it also keeps you on your toes. You and I both know that some of you will get all excited about PLR and set it up and then shiny new object syndrome sets in and you forget to really build up your site.
I think the newsletter is a great way to get a swift kick in the rear each month to remind you to keep at it! Because it’s worth it! Peggy sent me 3 issues of the newsletter and I was amazed. She does a wonderful job of sharing her tips and secrets and strategies here. And it’s a good read too – very casual, friendly and thorough.
She also interviews other PLR providers and puts their tips in there, so it’s like a whole other course coming to your inbox monthly, but not overwhelming – just enough to spark ideas and let you tweak the way you’re doing business!
Two thumbs up from me on Become a PLR Writer AND the newsletter. Good stuff. Good people.
