Recently I have been asked by a few of my readers my opinion on using PLR and/or ghostwriting for content for their websites … so today I wanted to give you some quick tips about both.

As we all know “Content is King” when it comes to building a business online so this topic is an important one.  Some people may even ask if it’s ethical to use PLR or ghostwriting for their content and my answer is always an absolute “YES” as long as you are providing your readers and clients quality information that they can use and benefit from and you are being ethical and responsible with the information you are sharing… of course it is.

Not everyone is a gifted writer and most business owners do not have time to sit and write tons of articles on their own everyday so PLR and ghostwriting are great options to providing good quality information on a consistent basis.

So today I wanted to share with you a great article on this topic written by my friend Nicole Dean.  Nicole is an expert on this subject and has been running a successful business online for many many years…so pay attention and take any advice you can get from her….because she knows what she is talking about!

PLR vs. Ghostwriting: Which is Better?

By Nicole Dean

Private Label Rights (PLR) articles and ghostwritten articles are both options when you need web content. Each is unique in its qualities and each has its drawbacks.

So, when you need content, which should you choose? Let’s analyze both options to find out which option is right for you.

Ghostwritten Articles
Ghostwritten articles are written just for your use. You own the article and can do whatever you’d like to with it.


1.  The article is unique to you and you do not share the content with anyone else.


1.  Ghostwritten articles are quite a bit more expensive per article than PLR packages.
2.  You have the responsibility of finding a good writer.
3.  The quality can be questionable.
4.  You need to check your articles to make sure your ghostwriter isn’t stealing content. Unfortunately that does happen.

PLR Articles
PLR articles are pre-written articles that are sold in packages, or as part of a monthly membership.


1.  PLR articles are much more affordable than ghostwritten ones.
2.  The content is ready, so you don’t have to wait for a ghostwriter to become available or find a ghostwriter who is available.


1.  The content is not unique. You share the articles with the other people who purchased the package or membership.
2.  You can’t submit the PLR articles to article directories.
3.  The quality can be questionable.
4.  You have to find PLR packages in your niche – or hope that the membership you signed up for sends you ones that you can use.

How can you even the odds between the two? Find a quality PLR service that allows you choose your topics. If the articles are well written, and their distribution is limited, it’s almost as good as getting ghostwritten content just for you. That way, you get the best of both worlds – quality content at a great price.
