Free SimplyPLR Article Marketing Strategies from Simply Total Donkeys

It's not often that you get such an AMAZING display of just how desperate people are for a free membership to a PLR article marketing site, but it's happening -- out in the open, in plain view of anyone who can click a mouse.

But, first, I like to think I've grown up a bit, become a tad more compassionate, than the day I first set foot into internet marketing. Back then, I'd chew anyone a new a-hole for everything from "omission marketing" (leaving out just enough info so that they're not lying yet leaving you vulnerable to a hyped-up imagination), to outright deception, to the creation of shoddy, incomplete, crap-o-matic software.

And I feel like I want to do it again...

Oh, frig, why the heck not...

Matt Callen, creator of Instant Popover and HyperVRE, is soon opening a new article marketing site, SimplyPLR. Instant Popover was junk. It was, basically, a gussied up dhtml script anyone could pick up for free at a place like "hotscripts", but with a few minor modifications to it. Essentially, it was a beautiful demonstration of how a nice website and some good ad copy could sell a bucket of crap.

Then he came out with HyperVRE which, full disclosure, I promoted... and sometimes still explore with ever-longing, hopeful curiousity. My first impression of it was that it was, yet again, a gussied up version of Larry Hall's "Traffic Hurricane" which, if any of you "old-timers" remember, originally belonged to Jeremy Burns. Now, maybe it wasn't literally from that script but it certainly strikes me as if it were.

But That's Not the Main Point

The main point is that HyperVRE started off with some promise to it... but no one in the forums ever seemed quite satisfied. Like every product I've ever seen that was SORELY missing something, people would express a muted complaint and then, either the owner or the cheerleaders, would come up with some calming response about how you're not supposed to "get rich overnight"... but, if you do something like throw up 100s of sites that make $1 per day, then, eventually, you'll be a (millionaire, billionaire, gazillionaire, trillionaire, pick one). Ok? Right? Sure...

But you know what's funny? I mean really, really funny but in a really sad way?

No One Ever Quite Says That in the Ad Copy

Who spends 100s or 1000s on ad copy in order to tell the public that they will have to struggle to comprehend what is the perfect Adsense template that won't result in Google blacklisting $1000 worth of domains? But wait.. what if they don't even tell you about the templates but then try to sell some to you later each and every month.
"Wait, you mean my original payment didn't get me everything I needed to make this thing work AWESOME right out of the box and, ultimately, get me free of my 9-to-5 job like you talked about?!"
It's just so sad...

Now, I didn't quote anyone verbatim and I'm not saying exact promises were made. We all know by now that ad copy is so cleverly written as to not actually make any claims but rather to SUGGEST things and then let your mind quietly add in the "I promise..." part, after each claim is made. But that's what happens, things get hyped to high heaven... yet people seem to end up in holy horrors. Enter....

Matt Callen's SimplyPLR

I have no idea what's going to end up crammed into it. Maybe it'll be an incredible bonanza, but judging by Instant Junkover and HypedUpVRE, one can only pray that things will be different this time. But, gauging by how things are starting out, one must pray...

...and pray hard, indeed.

You see, Matt just made a blog post offering people a chance to WIN FREE LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPS TO SIMPLYPLR. All they have to do is post a blog comment as to how they would use the PLR to get the greatest amount of traffic in the shortest amount of time. Or, let's say (tongue-in-cheek), "just water down your most cherished, guarded PLR article marketing secrets by laying them out in the comment section for everyone to see..." -- best ones win.

Is It Just Me Who Finds This Both Offensive
and Just Plain Weird?

In essence, it's saying,
"Tell EVERYONE your most cherished method of using PLR to get loads of traffic and money and then we'll give you lifetime access to the VERY SAME PLR they'll all be using with YOUR method."
I mean, give me a break...!

Yet People are Flocking to It Like Hungry Lambs on Speed!

But let's reason this out for a second (oh, btw, it's what we do here). If any of those people knew how to market articles, or had the ambition to, they wouldn't need a FREE LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP TO SIMPLY PLR. In fact, they wouldn't even need a free ONE MONTH membership to SimplyPLR.

Listen, save yourself the agony, I know of a PLR membership site that is,
  1. LOADED TO THE MAX WITH PLR,
  2. COMPLETE w/SEO SITE BUILDING SOFTWARE,
  3. PROVIDE PRIMARY KEYWORD LISTS,
  4. PROVIDE SECONDARY KEYWORD LISTS (long tail),
  5. INCLUDE FOLLOW-UP AUTORESPONDER ECOURSE, AND
  6. INCLUDE AFFILIATE PRODUCT RESEARCH, and have so much more...
...without any hype!

And provides a HUGE value without you having to give away all your most closely guarded secrets to your competition.

Look, this PLR article marketing site even has
Continuity Blueprint's, Ryan Deiss', name on it

What more do you need to know than that? But wait...

Before you head over to the BEST content goldmine, article marketing, PLR site with all the training a person could ever need, I want you to do one thing first...

Head on over to Matt Callen's "SimplyPLR" blog NOW, before it's too late, and copy/paste ALL the text from the comments section into a text file to save on your hard drive. They contain everybody's article marketing strategies which are pretty detailed. No doubt, you will find some nuggets of wisdom within...

Then CLICK HERE and get your
REAL PLR content and article marketing training...

Oh yeah, what do you think about people giving away their strategies for free? Is that good for business?

Sam -

PLR is a joke. You will not find ONE person - who has built a sustainable, long term business solely repurposing other people's content. And there are no secrets, silly - he's simply trying to emulate the oldest, and most successful product launch idea in the business - have OTHER people tell YOU why they need your product....so that they convince themselves, and others - of it's importance.

Sam - after reading your questions on the DIY thesis thread - I think you are probably better off learning a bit more about some basics - before thrashing other people for bad products. I'm fairly sure the Callen crew understand what a Wordpress theme is - and how it differs from the confused attempt you made to discern what Chris was referring to by a framework. (very simple stuff, chief - even for the non techie's amongst us)

Best..:-)

Howdy, thanks for stopping by... but please allow me to help you think a little more outside the box.

PLR is a joke.

That joke has generated a lot of cashflow. It's given bloggers something they can repurpose into blog posts, follow-up responder courses, repackage and sell and much, much, more.

It has provided work for freelance content writers, aka ghost writers, and in the right hands it can be used to build up to greater things.

You will not find ONE person - who has built a sustainable, long term business solely repurposing other people's content.

Who, in their right mind, ever said that "solely repurposing others' content" was the way to sustainability? Multiple streams of income is what's commonly preached, not "PLR business", but that PLR can be used to beef up, and create, those multiple streams of income.

And there are no secrets, silly - he's simply trying to emulate the oldest, and most successful product launch idea in the business - have OTHER people tell YOU why they need your product....so that they convince themselves, and others - of it's importance.

You'll have to point out where I said it was a "secret"... that was never the point. It was a horrible pang of conscience watching these people flying off the cliff by the dozens, like lemmings.

You should, I mean HE should, just thank me for the mention anyways. I realized a long time ago, you can tell a thousand people not to do something, and why, and they're gonna do it just to spite you anyways.

Sam - after reading your questions on the DIY thesis thread - I think you are probably better off learning a bit more about some basics - before thrashing other people for bad products. I'm fairly sure the Callen crew understand what a Wordpress theme is - and how it differs from the confused attempt you made to discern what Chris was referring to by a framework. (very simple stuff, chief - even for the non techie's amongst us)

The real "secret" is that you read my comment at his blog and then came here. So, when you feel like putting your mind to use, you'll read my article, Comment Whoring Outside the Box and ponder that fact.

As for your comment about me being ignorant of "the basics"... you're the one who just called PLR a joke. And you don't even realize I just hire people to do the tech work.

And if you think newcomers to Chris' site, who haven't been following him all along, aren't going to be confused by his lack of differentiation between terms, then you should have taken the time you wasted trying to one-up me and, instead, suggested he go check his bounce rates.

He writes as if he's got one static audience that's been sitting there watching him the whole time. Quick, go help him.

Sam
ps. And tell the "Callen Crew" I said hello...

Sweet Sassy Molassey!

I just cut and pasted 70 pages of tips out of those comments!

1 - separate wheat from chaff and there's probably a good 30 pages.

2 - find common points of agreement, and distill that down to a 14 step plan.

3 - check the wording against the sources to verify no plagiarism, now it is MY OWN PERSONALLY CREATED 14 step plan.

4 - ???

5 - PROFIT!!!

Thank you Sam Freedom!

Sam Freedom said...

Exactly, Chris... I'm glad you realize that and you're one of the few to even say thanks which should tell you something bout the state of making money online...
