If you have been using PLR for a while, you know how important it is to customize it. This involves rewriting some of the content so that it is original, unique, and doesn’t throw up any plagiarism flags.
Reminder: You can run it through Copyscape as you customize to ensure it is unique and not too close to other content.
However, it is also important that your readers get to know your voice. This is a big part of customizing and rewriting sections of PLR content. It not only makes it more unique, but allows your readers to recognize your style of writing; this is what they will come back for.
Here are a few tips that will help you get the content written in your own voice.
Read Through the Content First
The very first thing I like to do when customizing or rewriting anything is to read the entire piece all the way through, whether it is an article or report. This lets you absorb the information, and as you go along, you will hear in your head (or your voice if reading it out loud) the different things you would change. The stylistic differences between the PLR you buy and the way you typically write your own content will be evident.
After reading through it the first time, read it again, but this time mark the areas you definitely want to change. You can do this with the document’s tools, such as bolding those areas or changing the font color. Anything to make it obvious where you want to start making your changes.
Make Basic Changes
As you would any time you were customizing PLR, you will begin editing it by making the basic changes. The things you should always change with every PLR is the title, introduction and conclusion, headings and subheadings, and the way bullet points and numbered lists are words. This is easy to do and you will already be adding in your voice and personal touch to the content. These are also the things that plagiarism trackers will identify first, so try to change them as much as you can.
Do More Extensive Customizing
With the basic editing out of the way, you can go back through the content and start rewriting anything you marked when you read through the content the second time. It may take a few tweaks until you get it right, but soon you will be able to read the article and it suddenly sounds as if you wrote it yourself.
Tip: Read some blog posts you have written yourself and notice patterns in the way you write. You can usually pick up on them by reading your content start to finish, preferably out loud. Everyone has their own quirks when writing. Even a simple email can tell a lot about your writing style.
Develop a Personal Style
This is more about the overall formatting of your content and how you put it together, not necessarily the voice in the content itself. It is just another way to make your PLR content more unique.
Try developing a style that makes it obvious in every single blog post that it is your content. Your readers will soon recognize it. It can be as something as simple as using a particular color of font for your headings and subheadings, adding a fun signature to the bottom of the post, or bolding and italicizing certain words and phrases you find useful.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.
