    Hello, fellow blackhatters!
    You have probably read about Lewi's autoblogging challenge but now I want you to check out my response challenge in which I will try to top him by writing an awesome WSO ebook and selling it.
    Here are the first two posts:
    Description of my WSO challenge
    Day1 of WSO challenge.
    Will I beat Lewi in terms of net profit? Or will this be a disaster? You will know after 7 days! I will update each day with a report and in the end analyze what I did right and wrong and why I succeeded or failed.

    Feel free to subscribe and follow my quest!

    Recommendations are always welcome :)

    Meh! I think you will win this one my friend (unfortunatly!).... autoblogs are dead and Ebook's or WSO's are allways alive and kicking.... you have one kickass idea for an ebook which will appeal both to site owners as free content and also IM marketers alike.

    Best of luck to you but i will beat you with the next one or secretly behind your back :p i have to.

    I see that your day 5 goal is to only post sales letters. Why wouldn't you start selling on day 5 or even maybe day 4 or day 3?

    I am suggesting this because usually the first day you will hardly get any sales because this is the day where you will probably have to give a couple or review copies and will have to wait for the people to post their reviews which will probably take up the whole day and it will leave you with only 1 day to sell, which isn't nearly enough to sell enough ebooks.

    If it was me I would bust my butt and take 2 full days to write an ebook and prepare a great sales copy and then sell for at least 4 days and most preferably 5 full days.

    Good luck!

    Well, I got more than 40 tips done in the first day so this is quite possible, but I still have to organize the ebook in sections! My plan will probably change in the process of this challenge.

    OK good. And at how much will you price this ebook?

    I am not sure. I am thinking of using the tactic First X Copies for Y and then increase. I think it should start from 15$ and go to 25-30$ but I am not sure. I think I will give my ebook to some experienced marketers and ask them how much they think it is worth. After all, I am trying to actually write quality and unique content and I am skeptical towards the "uber 4129921$ a day method WSO's" who sell for 9$ per copy. Why is the price so cheap? Maybe because it's just some rehashed content or a few pages of something very basic! I'm currently at page 5 and with no unnecessary spaces and font 12.

    First 10 copies at $20 and then each copy after that $40 i think is a good price for this because of its size and time and you will probably sell less than 100 of them... but who knows.

    Well, I will sell at as many places as I can - WF, DP and Marketingduel so I might get more sales!
    In times like these I am a bit dissapointed that I quit wealthy affiliate. Their forum was full of beginner internet marketers who won't probably be aware of 90% stuff on my ebook. Maybe I should resume my subscription and post in their forum a bit, but it's around 40 bucks per month, not sure if it is worth it. Will decide later.

    Thanks :)

    I think you can do it. It's all in how you market it and if it actually fills a need. Keep us updated

    Hi lewi,
    I recently read your whole challenge on autoblogging and decided to start this week, but now your are saying that it's dead. Why? :confused:

    Anyway, I like how you and small_town_boy are both challenging together :p. It's very funny and a pleasure to read.

    Good luck to both ;)

    Hey,
    glad your enjoying the blog.... autoblog flipping is dead and it isn't.... you can still make good money in it but not as much as before and you have to have the edge over your competitors too.
    If you have that or can find a new marketplace to sell these then you can make good easy bank.
    One person who is following the blog made a $45 profit on his blog that sold today so it is still there you just gotta be better than the rest :)
    best of luck if you do decide to make any autoblogs and im adding a contact page today so people can personally email us :)

    Wow, nice to hear that it isn't dead :cool:. I know that there are a lot of competitors, but I decided to take action this time. I had not so much success online because of lack of time(exams, etc.). The only success I had was an ebook I sold on DP last year but then I gave up because as I said before, I hadn't a lot of time. Ebook is a good way to make money, so I think that small_town_boy will beat you and earn more easily than you lewi. But I decided to give a try on autobloging just to see If I'm good or not.

    PS: I too live in France and: Je sais, la vie en France n'est pas facile :D

    the plugins you have in the zip folder for download is less than impressive. I say nothing in your challenge that inspired me to try and replicate what you did.

    I believe lewi short changed anyone looking to him for guidance building autoblogs.

    The thing you did manage to do was get people visiting your blog but I dont believe you gave them value for their time. I know my time was wasted, all I get were excuses why you couldn't do this or that.

    now I just wasted 5 more minutes of my life.

    and one last thing.....I hope you put more effort into your ebook challenge than you did your autoblog challenge.

    Thanks for constructive criticism. We will bear that in mind. And after all we are not "pros" or "gurus", nor claim to be. This is just a blog about our internet marketing journey. If you feel it's too noobish for you, it is understandable.

    Sorry you feel like that but those plugins work and worked well... there are others but these are free plugins available to everyone (not paid or nulled etc). I can't exactly go and post some super nulled plugin on a site lol. Sorry you feel your time was wasted. I am wanting to do a quick video about caffienated content to show how to use it but will have to see about that as my pc is still laggy sometimes. The reason it lacked content etc was because its my first time making them.... excuses nope weren't any it sounded like there were but for people who noticed i actually wasn't even here when my internet broke etc :)

    Maybe this will be more interesting for you :) and hell your comments negative or positive are usefull as now i know i need to give more information.

    edit: yep me and small_town_boy aka Mr Rose are doing this as a JV... autoblogging was my challenge and this ebook selling is his challenge....

    now can we keep the talk to the challenge in hand at the moment please from now on (there is another thread for my challenge)
