Today I want to talk about the difference between the resale rights business model and the PLR creator business model because I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it lately.
So first let’s start off with understanding products with rights…
When we talk about selling the rights to the product it means that we create the product, and then give someone else the right to use it. Depending on what kind of rights you give depends on what the person can do with the product.
There are many different types of rights, but here are the main ones…
Resale rights – The purchaser of these rights can resell the product and keep 100% of the profits. They can’t edit the product, claim copyright, etc. The customers who purchase this product from the rights purchaser only gets personal use rights. Meaning they can only use it in its intended way. They cannot resell the product.
Master resale rights – The purchaser of these rights can resell the product and keep 100% of the profits. They can’t edit the product, claim copyright, etc. The customers who purchase this product from the rights purchaser can use the product and also resell the product to their customers.
Private label rights – The purchaser of these rights can resell the product and keep 100% of the profits. They CAN also edit the product, use it in several different ways, claim copyright, etc. Basically this is like getting a product and being able to do anything you want with it. You can even take a product with private label rights, change it up just a bit, and sell the resale/master resale rights to it.
Unrestricted private label rights – The purchaser of these rights can do just about anything with the product INCLUDING reselling the private label rights to it. This is like full blown rights to do anything you want.
Okay so now that you understand the difference in rights, let’s talk about the differences in being a resale rights creator and a PLR creator.
PLR Product Creator – As a PLR product creator you have to create all the content for your product from scratch or pay someone to create it for you. If it’s an ebook it’s got to be all original from scratch content. If it’s software it’s got to be all original code from scratch. If it’s videos the content needs to be all original from scratch. Getting the point here?
You have to create everything from scratch so that it’s YOURS and you can offer private label rights to it.
Being a PLR product creator is VERY profitable and I’ve made tons of money doing it, but there’s an easier way to make just as much money!
Resale Rights Product Creator – As a resale rights product creator you CAN create all the content yourself and just sell the resale/master resell rights to others, but an even easier way is to use PLR content you already have or can easily buy and use THAT to create your resale rights product.
I know… It can be a bit confusing, but if you read this post a few times you will get it. 🙂
Just remember this…
PLR – Can edit and sell and/or use in multiple ways
Resale rights – Cannot edit and can only sell as is.
Depending on what you want to do will depend on which of these you will choose.
If I’m just wanting to get a good product in front of my people to help them I’ll just buy resale rights.
If I want to get content and turn it into my own product or use it in a different way (blog posts, bonus content, membership content, etc) then I’ll buy private label rights.
There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of online business owners out there that want both PLR products and resale rights products.
