April 29, 2017: Taking Notes from the Best in PLR Selling
Words to the Web-Wise from Tiffany Lambert. I've been soaking up all of her daily brilliance by way of the Facebook live challenge.
Here, Tiffany explains going beyond SEO if you want to build a list, adding value to your forum posts when you're short on time, and other must-know success strategies for marketers. I didn't get a chance to listen to the whole thing, but I plan to tune into the rest later on today.
I haven't figured out how to share this Facebook video in its own frame, here on Wordfeeder. But when I do figure it out, I'll change this page.
April 24, 2017: Monday Funday
Geek out with the Wordfeeder Grammar Test!
This morning I dusted the cobwebs off some old files from the Wordfeeder Copywriting Archive. Thought I'd take this old set of grammar exercises that I created about 12 years ago, and turn it into something fun.
What are your thoughts about grammar in this day and age? Still alive and well? Or is texting and online communication destroying the English language?
Here's some fun for a Monday morning. Geek out with Wordfeeder's Grammar Test. Five exercises in all. You can take it for just $2. When you're done, you own the content to do with whatever you like.
April 12, 2017: Thinking about Keywords and Traffic
Use the Right Search Terms to Attract Paying Clients
I've been saying this for years, but my copywriting clients generally needed a lot of convincing.
I believe that if you want to attract website visitors who are either ready to buy, or almost ready to buy, you should choose search terms that phrase a very specific problem they're having. This problem, of course, should be something that your products or services have been designed to solve.
What sorts of problems do people type into a search engine?

How to Grow a Profitable Online Business by Publishing Articles
I'm not going to lie, blogger or wanna-be blogger. I'm writing this to light a fire under your butt.
If you're reading this, you're probably wondering what posting blog articles has to do with earning money via the web. Does this actually work? How does it work? How do you turn a blog or website into an automated income generator?
Lots of people go into blogging thinking that they'll magically make a ton of money, by mere virtue of having the blog alone.
Maybe they think that Google Adsense ads will be the thing that bumps them into a higher income bracket.
Maybe they figure that posting a few articles on their blog now and then will cause their home-based, service-oriented business to take off into the six-figure range...
Where to Get Content for My Blog?
You need a lot of content on your blog if you want to drive traffic and sales.
At some point, all new bloggers come to this realization. It occurs to them after putting up a blog, posting to it a few times a month and peeking at their web stats to see depressingly low numbers.
What's a busy blog owner to do? Surely you've read the advice on how to come up with ideas for blog posts. Yes, you can write your own articles, interview other experts, put out a Q and A column on social media, post product reviews, and that sort of thing.
But what do you do when you're tapped out of ideas, or you're just too busy to write content from scratch? What then?
What to Do When You Can't Afford a Copywriter
Let's be honest. Lots of small business owners either can't afford, or don't want to pay, a copywriter.
Being able to afford or not afford something is purely subjective, of course. Paying for copywriting services is an investment in the future of your business. After all, the more you market and the more website content you create and post often, the more quickly you're bound to be found by more people. And that means the more profit you're likely to bring in.
While all of this may be well and good, it still stands to reason that some people just do not want to pay for a copywriter during the early growth phase of their business.
So, what should you do if you're one of them?

How to Customize PLR Content for Your Audience
Not sure what to do with the FREE PLR Content packs given away by Wordfeeder and friends?

Jan. 26, 2017: Web article word count
How Long Should Your Web Articles Be?
I had a writer ask me recently how long a web article should be. On average, they're anywhere from 400 to 600 words, but that doesn't mean yours can't be as short as 300 or as long as 1,200.
Copywriters tend to think in word counts. They want to know how many words the client needs. If you're posting articles to a blog or an information site, then it's not so much how many words appear on the page, but whether you've explained one aspect of the topic or answered the question effectively.

Killer Sales Pages and How to Maximize Your Earning Potential There
Interested in learning how to create, market and sell information products, like e-books, e-courses, coaching workshops, instructional videos? Before you jump in, read this crash course in sales page 101. Below, some must-know tricks to ensure sure no one leaves that gorgeous sales page of yours without clicking Buy Now or at the very least, giving up their contact info!
Must-Have Sales Page Criteria: Convert More, Earn More
Keyword-stock your page title, H1 and H2 headlines.
Be sure to use keyword terms that people will be searching for. To find out what types of phrases people might use to hunt online for what you've got, do a Google search for the Google Keyword tool. Select a phrase that's somewhere between specific and broad. Too specific, and no one will find you. Too broad, and you're competing with the rest of the world and will never be found. So strike that happy medium, and then include that exact phrase right in your H1 and H2 headlines, as well as your page title...
Cheap Article Writing - A New Way of Thinking About Website Content
If you're in the marketing for cheap article writing, then let me introduce you to PLR. PLR stands for Private Label Rights content. It works slightly differently than you're probably used to, but with far more impressive, expedient, and money-saving results.
Right now, internet writers are busily researching hot content topics that work with your niche. The articles they're producing may sometimes seem a little vanilla, yes. But rest assured the information is accurate, the grammar up to snuff. And the content itself delivers great information that your readers definitely would be interested in knowing about.
Jan. 12, 2017: Foodie Blogger Freebie Comin' At Ya
FREE Food Blogger's Illustrated Guide on How to Turn Your Hobby Blog into a Viable Online Business
I just downloaded a wonderful, professionally presented PDF from Trish of KitchenBloggers. It's really one of the best guides I've ever seen that shares tips on how to get traffic to, and monetize, your blog. Covers foodie topics but I see it translating to crafts, gardening and other hobbies/interests/skills.
I believe you can get a free copy by signing up as a member of Trish's site (you don't have to buy anything).

January 3, 2017: New Year, New Goals, New Ideas for Using PLR Content in Your Online Business
Your Readers Have Resolutions, and They're Counting on You to Help See Them Through
With the holidays finally out of the way (did I really say that? Noo... I LOVE Christmas!) this leaves us with glorious free time to work on earning more via our blogs, websites, and all the online extras that go with them.
I'm talking about your workshops, your email courses, your online classes, your coaching, your e-books, your affiliate programs, and all the cool, fun ways you choose to earn passive income via the web.
As a blogger, social media mogul and web content publisher, the question on your mind should always be: what do people want to read about? What will my fans and followers respond to this time?
For the business-minded, a new year means a chance to set some goals for earning more and working less.
For the health and fitness minded, resolutions will probably include shedding those packed-on holiday pounds.
NEW Weight Loss Content to Begin Using Immediately
At Wordfeeder, we and our associates aim to please. So if you check out our Health and Wellness page, you're sure to see some fresh new content packs on the topic of weight loss!
If you buy one, consider the possibilities. So much potential in this one little (or not-so-little!) package of content.
Wait, what am I supposed to do with this website content again?
I'll tell you what I did. The last time I bought a big chunk of PLR content, I turned it into an e-book and I'm VERY happy with the results! (My ebook looks nothing like the content that I bought, and I prefer it that way, and you should too, if you care at all about professionalism and being original in a world of carbon copies.)
The content pack that I purchased following that one, I just paired with some free images I found on the web, and published on a website of mine that isn't getting a lot of traffic.
Later, I will revisit the article content and maybe fine-tune it a bit to sound more like my writing voice, as well as add a few more examples in addition to what's there. Good writing should include lots of details and examples. So if your content pack doesn't include many, just add some of your own.
I think that when you buy pre-written website content, you have to really sit down with it and brainstorm all the ways to leverage its vast earning potential.
Talk to Me
I'd love to know what you end up doing with website content that you buy here, and from Wordfeeder's associates.
Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your PLR content success stories!
To a great year ahead,

Dec. 29, 2016: Closeout Deals on Website Content
I've been getting quite a few alerts from content membership sites that I belong to. Most of them are offering "closeout" prices on topics that were heavy hitters in 2016. So if you want to blog about said topics, or maybe offer your fans some free reading material, you can grab up this content at extremely low prices.
I say "extremely low" because I continue to be astounded at just how little you can spend and still walk away with a LOT of content to brand and repurpose for your website and social media communication. I actually find it a bit overwhelming!
Anyway, the PLR content sites are clearing things out in order to make room for some new and exciting content trends to write about in 2017.
Stay tuned to see what the emerging trends will be in your niche for 2017. And while you're waiting, you can get busy publishing content to drive traffic to your site if you need to do that.
Here's an example of talked-about topics for the year 2016 that's now on clearance:
The "Marketing in a Box" content packs from List Magnets. These 12 marketing reports cover the classic must-read topics that any new business owner would want to know about if they're just getting their feet wet with internet marketing.
You can do all sorts of things with them. Rewrite, re-brand, add images, and sell on your site. Transform into an e-course. Include as supplemental material for your online marketing or business coaching workshop.
OR, keep the content as-is, and offer as 12 free giveaways for people who opt into your list.
Even though these topics might be old news to some, others could be totally new to the internet game and would find value here.
So grab your "closeout deal" on your choice of 12 different reports with "Marketing in a Box" from List Magnets!

Dec. 6, 2016: What to Get a Nerd or Internet Marketer for Christmas
Perfect Christmas Gifts for Internet Nerds, Bloggers and the Self Employed
Some gals wish for a pedicure for Christmas. Other, nerdy ones (like me), dream of Santa bringing them a laptop. Here's a list of holiday gift ideas to surprise and delight your internet geek or home business owner friend.
This post is dedicated to a very great lady who is no longer with us who once bought me a domain for my birthday. Rest in peace, Lori D.
A domain name. Surprise your geeky friend with their very own domain name for Christmas. Maybe they've been talking about creating a petcare website. Maybe they've always wanted to start a personal blog. A "vanity" domain (YourName.com) is something that most internet business owners should probably have. A domain name doesn't cost much, and even if they end up not using it, they can just put it up for auction on GoDaddy.
A list manager. As Santa knows, "It's all in the list." If your self-employed sweetie or home-biz hubby doesn't have a way to collect contact info, it's time to steer him or her in the direction of a good list management service. I trust Aweber and so do many of my colleagues.
Just be sure of a few things first: don't do this without their permission. And if you use your own credit card to activate their account, save the login so that later on they can transfer the billing to their own business credit card.
Pre-written website content. Now this is a neat little Christmas present, and it doesn't cost much at all! Buy your favorite coach, consultant, or blogger a pack of pre-written website content. They can cost as low as $15 which is perfect for a business buddy or a mentor whom you'd like to repay for their generosity. Here's a list of content on sale, right here on my site!
If you aren't sure what type of content they might want, you could do something totally radical like sign them up for a monthly membership with a great PLR website content site. Here's a list of a few that I'd personally recommend:
MasterPLR - $10 Monthly Membership
WhiteLabelPerks - "Perks Pass" All-Access Content Membership
Or... basically any program, app or utility they've been thinking of adding to their collection. If you don't know, ask! Chances are, if you've got an entrepreneurial friend or family member, they have at least a few internetty things on their holiday wish list.
Happy Holiday Shopping!
Nov. 29, 2016: Content Marketing for the Holidays
Should you give up on website marketing for December?
I know it can be tempting to just bag your blog and not communicate with your list during the busy, busy holiday season. The year is ending. Who is even listening?
I think lots of folks are listening. People use the internet EVERY DAY. It's their morning wake-up, their mid-day information break and their evening wind-down. It's their "I can't think of anything so I'm going to Google whatever is in my brain" reflex response.
Some people, like me, who work from home or run an online business, get going on their marketing and research once the kids are in bed. Some wake up in the middle of the night and head to the 'net for answers to their burning questions.
Is your audience out there, waiting to hear from you? Well, of course they are!
Putting it out there in December means that the work you did this winter will still yield results when people find you on search engines in May.
Not just this year, but every year! If you know how to set up affiliate earnings on your website, then if you do it now, it can pay off for you at any time for the life of your website.
Decided you want to be part of the online holiday chatter? Then consider what people in your niche might be interested in reading, and then speak to that.
- Who's job hunting or business building in December?
- Who's looking ahead to fitness programs for the New Year?
- Who's had their fill of holiday excess, and looking for an escape?
- Who's stressing in their relationships and in need of good coping strategies?
- Who's in a generous mindset and wants to think about giving and feeling good?
- Who's gift-giving (just about everybody) and in need of good recommendations and creative ideas?
- Who's feeling scared and vulnerable in the current political climate?
- Who's cooking and baking their hearts out?
YOUR readers, that's who.
And I've tapped into a pretty easy way to talk to them about a whole lot of useful stuff. From parenting advice to health and wellness trends, to business-building content to recipes, a wealth of wonderful content lives here on Wordfeeder.
Get on our mailing list if you'd like to hear about it.
You can do so much with what's here!
I honestly wish I knew about content packs when I was serving my copywriting clients years ago. PLR content is really an incredible way to work smarter, NOT harder. The work's been done for you, now just edit and make it your own.
To your content marketing success!!
November 10, 2016: Aftermath of the Presidential Election and How This Affects You in Your Business
America Needs Nurturing
It is my observation at this time, when slightly less than half of the voters in our country have expressed that their hopes have been crushed with the election of Donald Trump as our next president, that many of these people could use a message of hope, a mental and emotional perspective shift, and a strong but gentle and compassionate leader to follow.
What does this mean to you?
It means that if you're a strong person, now is the time to build something great. Why? Because very few will be standing in your way.
It means that if you're already in a position of leadership, now is the time to step up and offer a glimmer of hope, a cause, an aspiration, something for these people to cling to and feel as though they can make a difference.
It means that if you're naturally a nurturer, a space has opened up for you to step into and begin creating a safe haven for those who need it.
It means that if you've been wanting to build a following, now is your chance. Start preaching - eyes and ears and minds and hearts are open.
If you offer something like this already, don't become distracted by chatter and don't drop the ball. It's time to focus and strengthen your influence, a time to embody something positive that people will naturally flock to in their need to feel secure.
Wordfeeder offers self help content to inspire you in your teachings.
Nov. 4, 2016: How Does PLR Content Make Your Life as a Marketer So Much Better?
Good morning! What are you working on today? It's Friday, but that doesn't stop me from squeezing in all the work I can... how about you? I wanted to share the awesome end-result of a content bundle package that I bought and what I did with it. I paid I don't know, $27?
The content pack contained a series of articles covering Food Preservation. Bare bones, meaning just plain titles, and the writing needed a bit of punching up. But for that price, who cares?!
My purchased PLR content ended up serving as the skeleton for an e-guide that I quickly turned out for my gardening website, in under a week. I went through, basically rewrote each section, changed titles, and then designed in an open source layout program called Scribus.
If you offer something like this to your readers (can be a paid e-book, can be a free download opt-in enticement), you can easily just format it in MS Word if you want. I enjoy the program I used.
Also, for graphics, I called upon the help of great friends who pitched in beautiful photos of their canned garden produce. As a gesture of gratitude, I credited them by name, and included their blog links if they have online presence.
After doing this I immediately bought another content pack. Well, actually several of them. I can customize all the articles to fit my own style, work on SEO titles for our locale, and add details that pertain to my specific audience.
I'm really excited about this, and plan to continue buying content packs for all my niche sites!
I believe you can claim PLR content purchases as "advertising miscellaneous expenses" on your income tax return.
Think about how you could do this for your own business!
