Virtual Assistants: What is PLR and How Can it Help you to Get More Clients?

Here’s a question that I received today. I thought it was such a valuable question that I wanted to share my response.

Dear Nicole,

I hear you talking about PLR articles, but I’m a Virtual Assistant, not an Internet Marketer. I need clients, not content.

Why should I care?

Dear Virtual Assistant:

Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to respond to your great question.

PLR content can actually help you to get more clients. And, I’ll explain how.

As someone who hires and works with a lot of Virtual Assistants in my business, I’ll tell you that I hire oftentimes based upon the knowledge that person shows just as much as what they “say” they can do.

For instance, let’s compare two Virtual Assistants (hypothetically – these aren’t real people).

Susie and Tessa.

I go to Susie’s website and she’s got three pages – including contact, services, and pricing. I look around a little and discover that Susie specializes in videos and multimedia. I think “hmmm… interesting” and then leave.

Next, I find Tessa’s website. She’s got the same pages on her website as Susie – contact, services, and pricing. It looks to me as if she also specializes in videos and multimedia. That’s not what I’m looking for, so I’m about to leave when I notice that she has a blog. On her blog, she’s got articles about how I can use video in my business and how to also use video to get more traffic and make more money. I’m interested. She obviously knows her stuff. I contact her to find out how she can help me to get more traffic with my existing videos – and to brainstorm more videos that I can incorporate into my business on an ongoing basis.

Tessa got my business. Susie did not.

Why? Because Tessa did some things right.

  • She showed her knowledge.
  • She demonstrated that she understands marketing by having a blog.
  • She made me think about my business.
  • She seemed like a person who I’d like to work with.

How does this apply to PLR content? Easy.

Susie could have had my business if she had purchased some great quality PLR content and published it on her blog. Of course, as always, I would recommend that Susie use the content as a starting point only and then add her own ideas and examples into it to make it uniquely hers. But, the important thing is that she could have had an active blog offering great value to potential new customers that showcased her talent and made people desperate to hire her.

And, she could have done it for under $20.

    Other ways VAs can use PLR are:

    1. Giveaway a free ebook to entice users to signup to your newsletter. People won’t just sign up to newsletters anymore, they will however if there is something in it for them. The $$$ is in your list so entice users to sign up by giving a special report or ebook away.

    2. Use PLR articles as content in your newsletters or as blog posts.

    3. Nicole’s products are so good that you may even want to open up your own storefront at your website and sell ebooks. No excuses now if you don’t like to write as Nicole takes that hard part away with her PLR.

    4. You can break up a PLR article or report and take out the highlights and schedule them (Using Hootsuite) to go out daily to your social networks. Keeps building your credibility as an expert in whatever your niche is.

    Anyhow, just a few more ways VAs can use Nicole’s PLR ;)
