    I am just wondering it there's anyone who bought a WSO/E-book about how to make money online and really made money with that method.
    So far 99% of the e-books I bought were crap.

    Oh, and, if you found an e-book that is worth the money maybe you can share it here.

    Yeah. I bought some ebooks.

    Most of them are crap.

    I regret it so much. I lost money. But I was a newbie back then.

    I bought one on DP. <----- i know that sentence should get anyone slapped by donkey balls.

    But this was last year around this exact time. When people are selling ebooks they should at least tell you if the method is overly washed up. But 90% of the time i guess we can just assume that the method is something that the person had used up and once it becomes useless they sell it. That's why membership sites are probably better.

    I agree that sometimes the techniques in an ebook can be useless by the time the ebook makes it to press. That's why the one I sell at my Conduit site I also provide a free report about how to juice up the original techniques to make them stick.

    I like ebooks that inspire me to think about marketing in a new way or teach me a specific trick that I never heard about before. For ebook marketing I like Desperate Buyers Only which teaches you how to get into the mindset of desperate buyers - who are always more likely to buy - it's good even if you're just doing affiliate marketing because it helps you learn the psychology of market behavior.

    I buy ebooks sometimes NOT for their content, but in order to gain some insights on HOW they are promoted and created.

    Since I create my own products in other niches, I have found that when I create and promote info products utilizing the sales techniques of so-called "gurus" combined with my own creativity, I produce products that are light years ahead of any of my competition in that market.

    I wanna join WarriorForum and sell my stuff, they buy anything. I am amazed how people sell rehash after rehash non stop and others buy it like hot cakes.

    I should really rape that forum with a different name.

    I know if you add "BLACKHAT" next to your product it sells even faster.

    I have not brought them, but got them off here in the downloads/sharing section and yes I have made money off them, not millions but they have added to my revenue streams and added to my existing methods and operations.

    A lot of people will buy, read and say nah tat won't work! You have to put the steps given in the ebooks into effect and not just picture what would or would not happen.

    A lot of the wso's will not work unless you already have an operation in place. For example I have exsiting sites online and have operations like ewhoring and posting methods. Therefore when I read WSO's based on traffic methods I just try them for my sites and then if they work just add it to my traffic generation schedule and hoepfully automate it with macros or outsourcing. Also a lot of WSO's are for posting methods so I just add them in aswell to my classified ad operations.

    I also like the blackhat WSO's as these are very easy to implement aswell on there own or to existing sites or methods.

    I'm gonna be on the other side from everyone else I guess, but I've bought a lot of ebooks, reports, courses, systems and methods over the years and have made nice money from almost all of them... indirectly.

    The thing is I'm in a group with a couple others and we group-buy tons of stuff every month, then we tear these things apart, test everything, and dig out the few insights or nuggets of value from each and then incorporate the good stuff into what we're already doing.

    For example, when Squidoo was new and social media marketing was just becoming "the thing to do" we bought everything we could find on the topics, tore them to shreds and developed a web 2.0 attack that a few of us are still using with success today despite all the changes that have taken place with social sites and how they're ranked.

    I guess it's not what you buy, but what you do with it once you've got it.

    I would never buy an ebook thinking it's going to contain an 'a to z' system that you can drop in place and earn money with. Nobody would be dumb enough to sell that while it's still working for them.

    But if you dig through the materials you can usually pull out something new to you, or of value for yourself, and if that can be applied to what you're already doing to increase your profits then it's worth it in my opinion.
