Hey guys. Let’s go with this blog post about using plr blog content.
PLR Content or DFY (Done-For-You) Content is content that is available for PLR buyers, users and the general public who deem to learn and/or use it.
In some cases with some vendors, some produce high quality and some low quality PLR/DFY.
The content that seems to get paid attention to the most happens to be low quality PLR content.
This is mainly because the content doesn’t seem to read (or sound) like a English first person language writer wrote it.
Instead, it seems like a machine made the content.
Regardless of its accuracy, the reader may not receive the message that the writer is trying to convey due to the writing style or the coherence of the article.
In other words, even if these pitfalls are nonexistent, the average reader will get bored. Quickly.
In reality, when people say “I want a good story” or “Tell me a good story” they don’t want to be bogged down.
They want something that can engage them, intrigue them and keep their attention.
With that said, it’s easy to assume that the average reader wants to be entertained to an extent.
Don’t lose the reader because of the quality of the plr blog content you’re putting out.
If you’re on the way to losing that reader, just make sure you did everything in your power to retain that person, and if they go, they go.
Here’s a couple of things you can do to retain that attention within that reader in your content for your online space.
PLR Blog Content Attraction Tactic #1
Images are very important when it comes to the online world.
I can attest to this; I’m pretty sure I started to post images on this very blog but I was very late to this party.
Once I started to explore placing images of my articles (title, etc.) I believe I started to receive a bit more traffic.
This is because people had something to look at to perceive the article.
Unfortunately, not all of my images (or articles lol) are the best.
With that said, it’s understandable if I don’t get that much traffic because of an article picture.
However, it’s much better to have that than to just go off the strength of my article title.
Aside from article pictures it’s also ok to sprinkle a bunch of photos throughout the article.
I have been a bad example of placing an article up with no images inside of it.
So, yes, in the past my readers probably saw about 4-5 blocks of large text paragraphs.
It is (in my opinion) most likely not appealing at all.
It’s not wrong to put an image up (even if it’s funny, like what I did here) but you have to make sure it’s within the right context and it’s not something to just put up.
Plus, some readers will just scroll to look for a picture, thinking “I’m not reading all that BS, just let me find what I want to find.”
A clever picture or two or three would definitely halt a reader in their tracks because maybe they might want to understand that segment of the article more.
You want to look for free images If you decide to or you can pay for some.
I like to use unsplash.com but here are some sites (Free and Paid) that you can use.
PLR Blog Content Attraction Tactic #2
Audios have also risen in importance for some time now.
We as a society have entered the podcast realm for a while.
Now it has recently become mainstream in between ages of all groups around HS (14+).
Also, audiobooks have become a huge hit.
People can listen to them while heading to work, while on a road trip, while working out, while cooking, while cleaning, while doing their favorite pastime, etc.
I have definitely listened to a podcast when I’ve been on the road before.
By listening to a podcast, I find that the time just goes so fast.
Before I know it, I’m very close to my destination. So why do I say all this?
I am considering turning most (if not all) of my blog posts into audios that people can stream at any time.
Of course, the article may require a bit of editing and polishing before it’s formatted into audio, but leaving this option of audio articles on the table would be rash given where the society has taken audio to today.
If anything, I believe that the formatting of articles into audio can definitely increase the amount of traffic and it can help to push my message out more to others who may not have been receptive to it or others who never would bother to read but would rather listen instead.
Either way, I get a viewer/listener and that is better than trying to one-sidedly force my readers to learn one way.
I honestly believe the people who employ multiple training methods (Text, Audio, Video, Example, etc.) convey their message much better than those who prefer to explain their way and force others to learn the way they are teaching it.
PLR Blog Content Attraction Tactic #3
Videos have taken over life as we know it.
The average ad we see on a billboard or in a newspaper or on a flyer is nowhere near as effective as an ad that moves (gif) or a video ad and we all know it.
There are many articles on this topic and overall, video ads blow regular picture ads and text ads out of the water.
So why should we assume any different when it comes to video content?
For one, the video contains images that you wouldn’t see if it was a plain audio.
You can gain more from a video when it comes to certain technical things (for example, WordPress).
On the other hand, listening to the same audio from the same video won’t do much for you.
More importantly, some concepts would not be understood that well because of the lack of a video.
For some people, reading is a chore.
It’s much easier for those people to watch a video on the same topic than to read a 2000+ word article on it.
Just like I said regarding audio, it’s ok to create multiple formats.
Create that video from your PLR blog content by turning it into a PowerPoint and screen recording.
If you’re camera shy, just have people listen to your voice, you do not need to be on camera.
You can even just summarize some of your older plr blog content posts (like I did within my first post) and make a video out of that.
Granted, it was my first video so bear with me (long and drawn out lol).
But after you post it to YouTube, then you can embed it on your original post.
As a result of that, now viewers can turn into watchers.
Plus, they won’t need to read through your whole mountain of text anymore.

Lastly, Infographics have been getting quite sought after on websites, especially blogs.
Remember what I said about people just scrolling to find an image?
This point really comes into play with infographics.
Yeah, it’s ok to have a couple of gifs or a funny image or something. Infographics will really pull that visitor in, whether the user saw it on your blog or saw it in the “pictures” section listed on their favorite search engine.
Infographics are “educational images” that people can learn from.
They typically give an overview of a subject or give steps to achieve a specific objective.
Also, infographics are very succinct and to the point.
So, if a viewer just happens to scroll and see one, they can learn quickly from that image.
This is better than having to read the whole article or watch a whole video or listen to a whole audio.
Time is money and people like speed (so does money!).
The quicker you can convey your message, the better it is for everyone that views your content.
Now that I think of it, I believe I am going to include an infographic in this very post going over these 4 ideas.
I’m going to try to use Canva though… don’t come at me if it doesn’t look well.
I tried and that’s the most important part (lol).
If you decide against trying, you can always hire someone online who has experience in creating infographics.
Interested in spending more money? Take a look at Upwork or Freelancer.
When your infographic is done, make sure that your designer can watermark it with your brand.
The last thing I’d want to happen is you get an infographic done and upload it.
Then someone steals it and uses it as-is on their website or brands it.
Make sure you BRAND your images.
I’ve even started branding my article images so people can know where to come back to if they only see the article picture.
Online entities will not hesitate to steal something, especially if it’s not branded.
At the very least, if someone saves the image it will be branded.
That’s an automatic (offline) backlink for you at any given time.
I think it’s most important to remember that people just don’t want to be bogged down and bored.
Yeah, it helps if they were really looking to receive certain information on a desired topic.
But does the path of receiving this information have to be mundane and boring? Not necessarily.
With these 4 ideas to make your PLR blog content more attractive (PLR/DFY or not), you and I can look to really help the public not only by entertaining them but by also diversifying our methods of delivery.
P.S. I do find it a bit funny that this article is another mountain of text… so my work is cut out for me when it comes to diversifying this plr blog content.
