Do you need more content for your food blog? PLR recipes are an easy and affordable way to get more recipes on your website.
If you’re a food blogger, you know how much works goes into creating a single blog post. You have to work on recipe development. Then once you have a recipe that you like, you have to photograph and/or record video of the process.
Then you have to edit all of those photos and videos. Plus, you have to write the recipe along with a blog post to accompany the recipe. You have to make sure the SEO is good and that the social media promotion is all set.
I understand. It’s a lot of work.
If there are weeks where you just need a break from content creation, I have a solution you may be interested in – private label rights (PLR) content. Essentially, you can purchase the rights to publish recipes that someone else developed. Other people can also purchase the rights to use that recipe.
It depends on who you buy the content from, but some PLR recipes may include photos or even video. I personally wouldn’t buy recipes that didn’t come with at least images.
Are PLR Recipes Unique?
No, the PLR recipes will not be unique. Other websites will be able to purchase the same recipe as you.
You can make the recipe your own though. Write a unique intro. Re-write the directions in your own words. Crop and edit the images. I wrote a whole how to use PLR content article to help you get started.
All of the recipes currently on Keto Diet Mom are PLR recipes. I do also occasionally use PLR recipes on Happy Mothering.
Here are a couple examples that are doing well:
I haven’t done a ton to promote these posts, and they’ve gotten some natural traction. Plus having a video in posts increases ad revenue, so pageviews on posts with video are worth more than page views on posts without video (when looking at ad rates).
Where to Buy PLR Recipes for Your Food Blog
The company we bought those PLR recipe videos from no longer offers the types of packages they did before where you could just buy a handful of videos at a time, which is a huge bummer. A new owner just bought the website, and I’m looking forward to seeing how they relaunch things.
The most cost efficient option they offer is their Bite Sized Bundles monthly PLR recipe delivery service. When you subscribe to this monthly PLR recipe bundle, you’ll get 8 new recipes delivered to you each month and they all come with original photos. The cost is currently $19 per month. That’s only $2.38 per recipe.
What that means is that for $19 per month, you will get 2 recipes per week to post on your blog. And since you’re only paying $2.38 per recipe, the number of pageviews you have to get on that post to make back your investment in ad revenue is negligible.
With a $15 RPM, that’s only 157 pageviews you need to get on the lifetime of the post to get a return on your investment. I typically get at least that many in the first few months on my blog, so any pageviews after that are profit. And if there are affiliate links in the post, then you should also be making money there.
To make the initial risk even less, I have a coupon code for you!
When you sign up as a new customer for Bite Sized Bundles, you just need to add coupon code BSB10 to save $10 off the first monthly payment (normally $19; $9 with coupon) or BSB20 to save $20 off the first quarterly payment (normally $49/quarter; $29 with coupon). These coupons do not have an expiration date.
That brings the cost per recipe down to just over $1 each, so the risk of giving PLR recipes a try is very low. You can cancel your Bite Sized Bundles membership at any time – you aren’t locked into a contract.
