    The more and more WSO's I see, I just keep wondering about something.

    How many of those "reviews" are War Room members circle jerking each other and how many of them are legit reviews from paid customers?

    I'm sure the more posts you have on there, the more people think "Oh Wow! This guy has to be awesome at the online money makings!"

    Have you ever sold a WSO before? If so, how many did you sell and at what price?

    INB4: "I can has review copiez?!"

    I'm not good thinking of myself that I charged someone for garbage content easily found on internet. But being on-topic I can say happily that I didn't sold any WSO.

    Really? The more and I'm seeing of these and how many replies each of the threads get with "Reviews", the more I'm not happy about selling a WSO. It'll probably end up happening, I'm just curious to see if anyone has sold a Warrior Sucker Offer and how successful it was.

    I know two people who are quite famous at selling WSO's. One of them is an actual marketer though, and the other specialises in selling WSO's... as in his real job is to create the WSO and sell it (he doesn't do any SEO/social media in his real job).

    The stuff by the first guy is useful though. Not sure how he started.

    The one who only does the WSO's was mentored by the first guy. He gained trust in the community by creating this thread that had plenty of thanks and comments, before he launched his products. I'm not sure if any of those people were real though. Personally, I think his products are garbage and not useful.

    I tried to sell a service as WSO. They didnt even review my service lol. Just wanted the money. BTW I got about 1 order in 2 days. So that should give you a idea.

    I'm guessing you weren't a "War Room Member" or had many posts. If you can get newbs or other War Room Members to form a circle jerk in your thread, I see them get a ton of replies.

    You can't publish a WSO unless you are a War Room Member.

    I believe I read somewhere that the War Room Member section does have a "Review" circle indeed, sort of like a "scratch my back and I scratch yours" concept.

    I tried it 3 years before and didn't sold a single copy. Gave out a few review copies all ended on other forums. It's hard to sell wso without reputation on their forums.

    I've done a few. Didn't really do them for the money or probably do them correctly. For example, I didn't give out review copies, not a slick sales page, and didn't get affiliates, etc. Just put up high quality content at reasonable prices (usually in the $9 - 29 range). I haven't checked my stats, but I probably sold about 50-100 copies on average.

    Never sold there anything but i know Lucas who is selling their like each week a new product and for having success he always claims that you need affiliates.Thats also a reason why he offers 80-100% on his wso to the affiliates and makes his own money basicly on the upsell

    I was profitable but didn't make a ton of money.

    But that was probably because the WSO wasn't super planned out. I probably could've made more if I was more organized with it.

    Just a word of warning, it's all about the list and affiliates.

    Hardly any traffic inside that section is foot traffic. So as good as your WSO may be, unless you have a list of JV partners lined up when you launch, don't even bother.

    At that point why even bother with a WSO? If you have a huge list like that why not just send them to your own site/landing page?

    I might have hit about 35 copies of mine. First go ahead, no slick get rich sales page either, just good content, spent hours researching and creating the WSO. Not a single sale until I put in the promises of riches like seems to be required. My WSO wasn't any of the recycled garbage usually on there, was in a specialized niche though, so that might have been part of my problem.

    Or they just don't like unique content that does require some work on their part to make money LOL.

    They don't review what you post though, because they want your money for posting and bumping your thread. $40 to bump a WSO thread, shows what the admin of that forum actually cares about.

    No I have never sold a WSO. I think it is against the moral values to steal some one money from his pocket for some garbage ebook.....

    You don't have to make a garbage one. They just don't sell as well.
