The Different Types of PLR and What They Mean
It’s very common to be confused by the different types of PLR rights. Most people are at the beginning of their using PLR journey. If you stopped to think about it, knowing that PLR stands for ‘Private Label Rights’, why is everyone saying ‘PLR Rights’? That’s like saying Private Label Rights Rights.
One of the many inconsistencies in this industry but the term has become the norm.
The truth of the matter is that even with PLR rights, different PLR vendors have different interpretations of the same terms. The rule of thumb is this – always pay close attention to the license terms that come with any PLR product. This is normally included as txt file with the purchase file.
Some PLR sellers may have rules and stipulations that are unique to them. If in doubt, ALWAYS contact the vendor.
Now let’s look at the general understanding of the most common types of PLR rights.
Private Label Rights
Private Label Rights give you a lot of flexibility for personalizing/rebranding your content. Usually, you’ll receive the editable source files so that you can truly make the content your own and create your own derivative products.
The most important point to note here is the EDITABLE SOURCE FILES! Most variations of the rights are determined by the source files.
So, what are the source files?
If you’re getting written PLR content whether they’re articles, reports or eBooks, the editable source files will most probably be .DOC, .TXT and sometimes .RTF.
What that means is that since you have the source files, you can edit the documents. You can rewrite them or add your own name, images, cover image, and so on. You can personalize and rebrand the content to your heart’s content and make it look totally different from the original PLR product you purchased.
This is the strongest point of getting PLR from the original vendor. You get all the source files to get maximum mileage from the PLR.
Resell Rights (RR) products can often be found in PLR membership sites. These products are usually ‘Biz-In-A-Box’ PLR packages that have been converted into PDFs, MP4s, etc.
The main difference here is that the editable source files are NOT INCLUDED. This means you’ll only be able to sell the PDF or MP4s (depending on the product) as they are without making any changes.
There’s a lot less flexibility with resell rights products. You could sell them but you’d be competing with everyone else who has these products. Since most beginner marketers tend to compete on price, it’ll be a race to the bottom and they’ll all end up devaluing the products and selling them for peanuts. You’ll barely be able to make a profit.
That said, you still can use RR products to make some sales, create bonuses, or use them as research for your own content creation.
Master Resell Rights
Master Resell Rights (MRR) products are very similar to resell rights products. The difference is that your customers will be able to resell the products as their own too. Once again, this leads to everyone and their grandma owning the product and devaluing it.
You’ll be able to give away these PLR products as gifts, bonuses or they can be used as freebies to build your email list (usually in PDF and MP4 format). Depending on the product, you may sometime get the editable source files but most often won’t.
Unrestricted Rights products usually have very few restrictions and you can do whatever you want with them. Do note that some clueless PLR vendors may state on the sales page that their products have unrestricted rights but then they have stipulations in the terms which restrict you.
Always read the fine print.
Limited content is not ‘PLR rights’ per se but it’s a type of PLR content that’s highly sought after. Limited PLR will have a limit to the number of copies sold.
In some cases, they may be limited to 100 or 200 copies. Sometimes 50 and sometimes less. It all depends on the PLR vendor’s preferences. The reason many PLR buyers love limited PLR content is that means there’s less competition since fewer people own the content. That makes it easier to personalize and rank the content in the search engines.
PLR Reseller Rights
PLR Reseller Rights is a rare type of rights offered by very few PLR sellers. This type of rights allows you to sell the PLR as YOUR OWN PLR.
You’ll be able to include the source files with your package. In other words, it allows you to become a PLR seller in your own right.
Creating content is hard work. Purchasing products that come with PLR Reseller Rights will allow you to quickly build a PLR store and sell your own PLR products. Isn’t that fantastic? You can be a PLR seller in record time.
