In the age of digital content, bloggers are continuously looking for strategies to streamline their content creation process. One method gaining traction is the use of prewritten blog content. This doesn’t mean plagiarizing or copying someone else’s work, but rather leveraging available resources in a strategic and ethical manner. Here’s how to effectively use prewritten content for your blogging advantage:

1. Understand the Types of Prewritten Content

Before diving in, understand that prewritten content can come in various forms:

  • PLR (Private Label Rights) Content: These are articles or ebooks that you purchase the rights to edit, rebrand, and publish as your own. The same content can be sold to multiple buyers.
  • Syndicated Content: Articles that are shared across different platforms. This kind of content retains the original author’s name and credits.
  • Guest Posts: Articles written by another author specifically for your blog.
  • Curated Content: Handpicked content from various sources, summarized, and shared with your audience with your commentary.

2. Always Prioritize Originality

Remember that Google and other search engines prioritize original content. Republishing prewritten content without significant modifications can hurt your site’s search engine ranking. To avoid this:

  • Rewrite or Repurpose: Change the structure, add your voice, and include original insights or opinions.
  • Update Data: Prewritten content might have outdated data or statistics. Update these to make the content current and relevant.

3. Merge Multiple Sources

If you have access to various prewritten articles on a similar topic, consider merging them to create a comprehensive guide. This not only enhances the quality of the content but also offers unique value to your readers.

4. Give Credit When Due

If you’re using syndicated or curated content, always give proper credit to the original authors and sources. It’s not just ethical but also helps in building a trustworthy relationship with your audience.

5. Align with Your Brand Voice

Your blog has a distinct voice and style. Ensure that the prewritten content aligns with this. Modify the content accordingly so that it seamlessly integrates with the rest of your content.

6. Enhance with Multimedia

To make your content stand out and feel more original, add your own images, infographics, videos, or other multimedia elements. This not only enhances reader engagement but also differentiates your content from the original prewritten piece.

7. Know the Legalities

Always be sure about the rights associated with the prewritten content. Can you modify it? Can you republish it on your platform? Can you claim it as your own? Being clear about these aspects prevents potential legal troubles.

8. Listen to Your Audience

Regularly gather feedback from your readers. If they feel the content is not up to the mark or doesn’t align with what they expect from your blog, consider revising your strategy.

Conclusion

Using prewritten blog content can be a powerful tool for bloggers looking to publish consistently while saving time. However, the key is to use it judiciously, ensuring that the content remains valuable, original, and aligned with the blog’s brand and voice. With the right strategy and ethical considerations, prewritten content can indeed be a boon for bloggers.

  1. This is useful information. Great points, like making sure you can alter the content if you want to, were brought to the surface that might not otherwise have been thought of.

  2. As you might have seen I have co-authors and I also take guest posts but I always check the originality, as it is very very important. I am still trying to get PLR but I dont know how and where will I get it in India. Lets see.

  3. Originality is very important. I sometimes delegate writing, but I only trust a few writers who have also become friends later on. Great resource…thanks for pointing these out.
