What Can You Do With a PLR eBook?


A common question asked by people who are brand new to using PLR is what they can and can’t do with an eBook. There is actually a lot you can do with it! You can definitely keep it as an eBook after customizing it and use it that way, but breaking it up and using the content for a variety of other uses is also a great idea.

Note: You can’t take the eBook and sell it on Amazon, even if you edit it and customize it to be unique. This is against Amazon’s policies and will get you banned.

However, there are tons of ways to use an eBook, depending on what your needs and preferences are. Here are some suggestions:

Different Ways You Can Use a PLR eBook

Use it as a content upgrade – This is definitely one of the more popular options for using a PLR eBook. Customize the eBook so that it is unique and relevant to your niche, then use it as a free gift for your subscribers. You can either give it to your current subscribers as a bonus free gift, or use it as an opt-in upgrade to get more people to sign up for your email list.

Turn it into blog posts – Since eBooks tend to be on the longer side, usually 10,000+ words at least, they are ideal for using as blog posts. Similar to reports, you would just break it up by chapter or whatever makes sense, then use each chapter or section as a separate blog post. You can intersperse them with other content on your blog, or use it as a new blog series to encourage your readers to keep returning for the next part of the series.

Create a new email series – If you are looking for fresh content for your emails, then you can use the eBook as a new series. Follow the same concept as using them for blog posts by taking each section or chapter (if they are short chapters) and include them in an email series. Don’t forget to start with an introductory email to let your subscribers know what the series is about.

Use the content for your newsletters – In addition to having an email series based around the book, you can also simply use some of the content for your newsletters. Perhaps the eBook is about fitness and you run a health-related blog. You can take some excerpts from the book and use them to draft your emails, then use other sections for blog content.

Break it up into social media posts – Another way to use smaller parts of an eBook is to turn them into social media posts. There are a lot of ways to do this, but I recommend writing a blog post about one section of the eBook, writing an email that corresponds with it, and then using some excerpts from the book for a Facebook post that sends people to the blog post.

Use the eBook for your own book inspiration – If you really want to sell your own eBook about this topic, you can still use the PLR eBook as inspiration. You don’t want to use this actual book if selling it on Amazon, but it can give you some good ideas with how you want to write your own.
