    Or prove me wrong.. I just find it hilarious that people are eating these "top secret" money making methods up..

    People are promising hundreds to thousands a day and offering it at a LOW LOW special $7 or $19 price.. lol people.. seriously.. come on!

    Anything that's worth your time is either A: not going to be sold for pennies
    B: not going to be sold at all and kept to yourself.

    Sure, I can see some good use out of the PLR Products on WSOs but the "money maker" WSOs kill me.. Your thoughts?

    So far I have found 1 good usable WSO (about offline marketing) everything else I have seen is, as you say, junk. Hell I even bought a couple back in the day, definately not worth the money. Things like making a sitemap and pinging via pingomatic per-lease!

    I think that the majority of them are mainly geared towards people just starting off,

    I wouldn't go as far as to say they all blow, but most are very basic info.

    Hell with all the access to the info in this forum, you could trump easily 90% of them if your willing to put in the work.

    Saying all WSO's suck is just stupid. Sorry. You cannot say that just because something is sold through a certain medium that therefore, it sucks. The problem isn't that WSO's suck, the problem is a bunch of scammers have determined that it's easy to sell crap and make money doing so in a WSO. I've bought a ton of good WSO's. Good shit where I get templates, articles, PLR, 50% off kick ass software.

    Yeah, most of the $7 reports and cheap stuff is garbage, but come on, if you're not smart enough to figure out what is the real deal and what is dog crap, then you're probably not smart enough to succeed in this business. Like this 7 ways to make 100/day report that someone was claiming was copied from him. Fuckin-A all I had to do was read that WSO sales page and I could tell it was crap. I know this is going to piss some people off, but one of the biggest problems is dumb buyers. Idiots who buy this crap only fuel on these peddlers of shitty ebooks.

    Sorry to be a dick, but there are some people trying to make money online because they are too dumb to make money doing anything else. Just like everything else they've tried, these retards will fail at making money online too. These dumb asses are the one's who keep this whole cycle going. Real marketers and guys who've been around awhile aren't the ones buying these piles of dung. They are smart enough to see through the nonsense.

    I'd have to agree that most of the WSO products are junk. But every once in a while, I have run into some decent ones. I bought a WSO that was all about Public Domain sources and there were so many good sources identified that it was definitely worth the money.

    In other cases, I've bought WSO offers from graphic artist to make minisite, ebook covers, etc. The price was good and the quality of the work was excellent.

    As with most things in life, you have to be careful about what you buy, and WSO offers are no different.

    Some great WSOs are new programs. A lot of software makers release them for extra cheap for the WSO and then when the product goes live the price is more than double.

    Some of the ebooks are decent but most of them suck.

    Yes I would agree that you could sometimes pick up some great software before it launches in WSO's, but many of the reports suck. Some people even have the nerve to charge money just to tell someone about a website that you can get for free by doing a Google search. Just recently someone sold a $5 report and it basically was two pages telling someone to go to a freelance site for cheap content. What a load of BS!

    I think the biggest retards are those giving testimonials for WSOs. Sometimes they have some hidden agenda like JVs. Sometimes they want to look clever. Most often they have no clue at all.

    "It was a fast download (LOL) and a good read. I can see how the information can/could/should/might/will (insert your favourite) help me if (not when) I put everything into place."

    In other words they give their opinion. Not a cool idea for a testimonial.

    Totally agree. WSOs now are full of crap. I did buy some in the past where the product was good quality but now it is same old shit with a twist.

    Only one thing I like is that copywriting of these WSOs. It just unbelieveable sales letters to sell shit. All the claims, screen captures etc.

    And one thing try posting a real opinion about a WSO you bought, you f**cking get banned.

    Hi Interpro,

    Would you mind to share your e-book on the public domain sources as I have been looking for this type for some time ?

    Thx in advance

    :)

    I'll give it to Warrior Forum though.. Digital Point takes the gold medal for idiots.

    As for the testimonials.. yeah they are pretty retarded right?
    "This product is so awesome *insert drool* everyone should get this right away and start earning"
    You'll never see anyone say "Hrmm.. this product's not bad.. I earned $100 the first day with this e-book"

    I'm not convinced.. someone give me the link to a WSO that isn't complete and utter garbage and just common sense re-hashed BS, and I will admit I was wrong...

    I built my first SEO Firm from a WSO from a kid who is now only 17 yrs old. I also endorsed his product and it went on to be a great seller thru Paydotcom (Craigslist Profits) until he sold it. I've smashed Craiglist with tips from WSO's, I've beat the piss out of Yahoo Answers with WSO's, I've made money with 43 things because of WSO's. If it wasn't for a kid asking me to review his WSO before he posted it (No More Adwords), I probably would not have tested Facebook PPC until later.

    I think it's not the WSO's that suck, it's just the ones you pick. If you go looking for the overnight buck what the fuck do you expect? Read the copy and testimonials thoroughly.

    Try posting a negative experience about ANYTHING on the WF and they pull the post :confused:

    But they are all so far up each other's backside that the whole forum is a joke.

    But can someone tell me - What is the point of a WSO? Selling 50 copies of an ebook for $7 (if you are very lucky)? That's $350 for all that time and effort - even if you've just done a cut and paste job it can't be worth it. Do they do it to get testimonials (pretty f**king worthless)? To attract affiliates? (In which case bunging it on Clickbank would be much smarter).

    I really don't see the point and I would love someone to explain it to me.

    The point of a WSO is to make money. If your only selling 50 copies of a method or ebook than you have two problems.

    1. Your copy sucks
    2. Your product sucks

    It actually can be worth it. As a matter of fact there are people in there that rehash on purpose and make over $2K a month just from that forum alone. Along with DP and WSO's it can be ok money for people not making ends meet on the retail, product or CPA or whatever side.

    As far as attracting affiliates ago, this is a no-brainer on a prelaunch product going up on Clickbank or Paydotcom. You can work out some nice JV's from this. Besides that if your smart you will put the product on Clickbank first, get it accepted, sign up as an affiliate, then lower the price to the WSO price and have every one pay thru your hoplink, thus driving your gravity up during your pre-launch.

    Why is gravity important? It drives your product higher in the listings in the CB Marketplace and aside that, all them gooey ebook or whatever promoters ride the Clickbank monitoring tools like they were $10 hookers. Now if your new and nobody is as smart as you then you will have those weeks where you are listed in the new category of these monitoring services and while nobody has any gravity, you do thus you stand out.

    How does the buyer know - until he's bought it? I see loads of these things where the content is genuine crap - yet they seem to sell 50 or so copies on a WSO. I also see WSO's where they only sell one or two (I'm assuming buying thru the WF 'buy a beer' mechanism). Are you really telling me that you can sell large numbers thru a WSO?
