How to edit and brand your done-for-you videos
On this page you’ll find tutorial videos and courses to help you get the best from your done-for-you videos. I’ll be adding more, so please stop by from time to time. Or you can take a look at my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel or my mailing list (download my free WordPress articles to do that).
So you’ve bought some done-for-you content…how do you make it your own? In many cases you can publish it ‘as is’ (always check the license to be sure of exactly what you can do) but your content will be much more effective if you personalize it, for example by adding your own stories, opinions and branding.

How to optimize your YouTube videos
If you’re posting a video to YouTube you want people to find it! Here are the basics of how to do that:
Please note that you won’t be able to upload unedited PLR to sites such as YouTube because they don’t want duplicate content (and other people will have bought the same PLR). For YouTube, you can add your own branding such as an intro and outro with your own colours, fonts and images. It’s a good idea to change the title and the length of the video, too.
I hope this is helpful, please pop back as I’ll be adding more tutorials to this page! If there’s anything you’d like to know, please contact me, or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter and I’ll make a new tutorial.
