If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you already know that my blog and all the top bloggers online use WordPress. There’s a very good reason for this – WordPress is now considering the best Content Management System, or CMS, for everything from blogging to e-commerce to building a corporate website.
WordPress has seen tremendous growth in the past few years, and the demand for entry-level WordPress video tutorials is extremely high. Every day there are thousands of new users looking for information on how to use WordPress. Although there are sources of information our there, most non-technical users won’t find them very useful.
Although you can record video tutorials yourself, WordPress keeps pushing out new updates every few months that would make your tutorials outdated. It would be a complete waste of your time to record new videos all the time. That’s where Gobala Krishnan’s PLR WordPress Videos site comes to the rescue.
The site claims to have “The Largest Collection of Private Label WordPress Videos”. While I’m not sure if this is true, at the moment he does offer over 120 videos, with over 480 minutes of tutorials.
There are three membership levels – Silver, Gold and Platinum. All the private label videos are in MP4 format, so it’s suitable for any operating system. Other video formats, and even the Camtasia source files are available for the Gold and Platinum levels. You get instant access to all videos, and all downloaded videos are yours to keep forever, but there is a recurring charge for updates.
According to Gobala, this is because “WordPress keeps updating everything all the time, so the recurring fees allow you to get updated videos.” It’s entirely optional and you can cancel your membership at any time, but according to Gobala some of his members have stayed on for as long as 3 years.
Here’s what you can do with the videos when you become a member (please refer to the terms and conditions for a more accurate description):
- Repackage the videos into your own paid product or membership site
- Add them to an exiting paid membership site to provide high value
- Provide them as training materials to your freelance clients
- Include these training videos as a bonus for your hosting clients
- Provide them as support videos in your seminar or event
As a member you also get 3 ready-made static website templates (not WP themes) to sell these videos. You will need to ge a hosting account to setup your own site if you don’t already have one. The videos will also be transferred to your Amazon AWS account for free as a value-added benefit.
If you’re planning to start your own online training or coaching membership, or if you need to add more value to any existing product, this could be a great option for you. I know of several well-know bloggers who have been using Gobala’s videos for their own products. You can view 3 sample videos on the site, and there is a 30-day money back guarantee.
Although the PLR videos are not recorded in the American accent, transcripts are provided so you can do your own voice overs if you want. Overall the video quality appears to be good (or acceptable depending on your taste) and you should be able to us them right out of the box.
