    I have several well written articles that I'm thinking of bundling together for PLR. I mean they're very well written. They're all over 1000 words, they have references to reputable sources in their fields and links to places that back up the information that is presented. I was using them for samples to gain writing clients but I think it may be more lucrative to just sell them as PLR. They aren't actually doing anything. I may as well make money off of them, right?

    My question is do marketers still buy PLR articles? And if they do, how much do you think they'd pay for a bundle of about 5 or 10 well written articles in a particular niche? I have one that's in the pet niche, but all of the rest of the articles are in the health/wellness niche.

    Not selling anything. Just wondering about interest and how to price these things.

    I imagine the best way to find an answer to you question is take a leap and try selling them bundled. Another thought is to create your own site with all your content and give paid access to the articles?

    Hmm... $5 on fiverr.. because I prefer unique content, that I'm the only one who's going to use it in my site. Maybe marketers still buy it for web 2.0's.

    Spot on above.

    PLR are for filler. Some of us use them on Web 2.0s after we spin them. No a lot of money in selling them but it could be a way to lure in clients somewhere like Fiverr.

    There is lots of competition. You have to somehow stand out from the rest. There are sellers charging $5 for 5,000 articles, so you must convince the buyer that your 5-10 articles are worth as much as the other guy's 5,000. It's going to be tough. Writing custom content may be a better option.

    Just do the maths.

    Say you were to write one 1,000 word article for $20. It's quite easy to get customers to pay that much if you are an average to good writer. This way you would make $200 for 10 articles. Selling them as PLR for $5... you'd need to sell the bundle to 40 buyers! That's a lot of work.

    Wow. I totally forgot that I created this thread.

    Thank you all very much for your replies. I was looking at it as a source of passive income. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I should take a leap. I've seen the competition. I'm not mass producing thousands of articles to sell for pennies just to compete with other guys. Nor do I want to write unique content for private clients. I've had enough of that.

    If I can find a way to stand out I'll try it. If not I'll move onto something else.

    Hello,

    try to sell them as ebook. Or say you will write ebooks about your niche and use your articles.

    There is a LOT of buyers who want ebooks on Fiverr.

    Other ideas:
    - make infographics with your articles
    - record them with your voice
    - make a video


    Fiverr buyers are LAZY. If you sell them a great article and the same article on another support, they may like it.

    I never thought about doing ebooks. They take a while to put together but I've got a few that I can use as samples. Hmm. I may try that. Thank you very much.

    Buyers being lazy is the reason I was looking into plr articles in the first place. PEOPLE are lazy. They will take shortcuts wherever they can whenever they can. I was simply trying to capitalize on that.
