PLR articles are available on various websites dedicated to writing or web content. The original way to have access to PLR articles was to join a PLR membership site. These sites require a monthly membership fee, and sometimes a lengthy commitment. The monthly membership fee entitles the PLR site member to all of the content located on the site, which is regularly updated with PLR content articles, eBooks and reports.
In the past couple of years, newer PLR sites have focused instead on packages of articles. These packages are available on an a la carte basis and do not require a membership or a commitment. Article packages usually focus on one category of web content, with several titles within that niche. Sites such as The PLR have a diverse collection of article packages, while some sites concentrate on a specific niche. Either type of PLR site should have several packages to choose from and offer some way to communicate with the writer if there are any questions.
When you have bought your PLR articles, they are generally delivered immediately upon payment. The files may be a Word file, Open Office or a plain text file. Some PLR sites offer a choice of file types or send two different file types at once. The content of the files are then yours to do with as you wish, in keeping with the rules of the site you bought them from. The rule most common to PLR sites is that the articles, reports and eBooks can’t be resold as PLR content, but the rules will vary from site to site. If you’ve found a site that offers high-quality articles and has plenty of content to choose from- stick with that site. There are a number of low-end sites out there selling PLR content that’s been outsourced overseas for pennies- and it shows.
