Compiling Your Finished Product - Private Label Rights (PLR) Product Creation: Part 10

This is the tenth in a series of articles discussing ways in which to profit from creating your own  private label rights (plr) products.

Once you’ve completed the content of your product, the next step is to compile it, or basically wrap it up in a nice looking package.  The most important consideration for any product is…

What format is MOST widely usable in the market?

In other words, you could create an ebook and sell your finished product as a Word perfect file, but that’s just not smart, because you’d be shutting out a huge portion of the market that don't own Word perfect.  Or worst case scenario: they go out and buy it, then realizing they can’t use it, flood you with support and refund requests.

In general, the most effective format for an ebook is .pdf.  The reason being, there are many free pdf readers available to everyone to download, for example Adobe Reader or Fox It Reader.

A pdf document will display anything created in that format exactly as you intended, in other words, it'll look the same to everyone - unlike web-based pages that display differently for each person, based on web browser, screen resolution, etc.

For audio files, the best format is .mp3 because the file size is small compared to other formats and .mp3s can be played on portable players like iPods as well as personal computers through Windows Media Player and other readily available software.  

You can supply your customers with links to appropriate free software on your download page, as a courtesy. People remember sellers who are prepared to go the extra mile.
