    Think about it---if you have a superduper method of earning thousands of dollars per month, why would you share it with others? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? Keep it a secret for as long as you can so you can milk it? One huge warning sign is these people are selling their superduper TOP SECRET method which will make you, the Average Joe, earn thousands of dollars per month on auto-pilot for a measly 12 bucks! Really?!?! You will sell me your $10,000/month super-secret method for $12? How can ppl take these offers seriously?!?! :facepalm:

    I'm just shaking my head at all the screenshots there showing their ClickBank statements for one month where they got like several thousands of dollars during that particular period and yet, here they are, giving the world their secret for $8! Is this real life???

    I think I'm gonna learn PhotoShop and work my magic on my ClickBank account and then look at the latest tricks here on BHW and then offer it as a WSO! But hurry! This $15 offer won't last long! Also, I am going to offer an OTO for a LIMITED amount of early buyers so act now!!!

    Well maybe because their claims are sort-of true sometimes. Using SOME of the methods in these ebooks and adding a twist/applying it to a less saturated target will make you money. So most people buy it just to have a look and too see if they will be able to twist it a bit and earn from it. But most of the time they cant think of something and then share the method. I'm sure there are methods out there that actually make some of those buyers the aformentioned 10000k autopilot, but then again if the book inspired you to find a gap in the market would you share it or say its crap?

    The latter ofcorce. And as for the people who sell these methods, its their method for making money, so you are part of their method, and in return you get some other method they go/stole/scraped from somewhere...

    People who don't make money online are always dazzled by a "make x doing y" "method" that sounds plausible to them, and some are willing to pay for it.

    Because communities like the Warrior forum foster a group delusion about not thinking for yourself and just needing to latch onto the right (failed) guru's ideas.

    These are the same type of people that fall for the newest weight loss gimmick or get rich scheme or MLM scheme. The people at WF should be ashamed of themselves for selling such crap. Occasionally there's something good but most of it is crap.

    Because everyone is looking for instant riches and fail to remember the old adage "if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is".

    It's like buying a lottery a ticker. You are a millionaire until the drawing. And you're paying just for that feeling.

    Yup the ebooks are useless and will eventually get ripped and will be posted here or somewhere else.

    The program and the scripts on the other hand are great.

    There are the WSO's that work, or at least open the eyes over a concept (or integration of sites and methods) that can successfully lead to earnings, so it's not entirely their fault most fail. The key factor is that most people WILL NOT TAKE CONSISTENT ACTION on a plan, whether it's from a crap WSO or decent WSO, or for that matter, a good method on BHW.

    People on WF load up on information over and over, and delude themselves that WH is sufficient to get them to quick success. As a result they get either stuck in the paralysis of analysis, or end up applying a good tactic they pick up to a faulty or outdated overall strategy. Between the lack of implementation or fatally flawed implementation, that's why the WSOs fail.

    You can make a lot of money "selling shovels to gold diggers".

    That's what WSO's are all about.

    Create them and sell them . . . Don't buy them. :)

    It is simply because WSO sellers are great with enticing others to buy their products + add the "positive reviews/testimonials" (which is odd you wouldn't find a single negative feedback about the products. ) Bottom line is, there are so many who would fall for this so called WSO (some WSO are useful though, :) ) because of the help of the "higher order" inside the forum itself.

    here's another way to look at it. ;)

    the purpose of a wso is not to actually help anybody make any money.
    the purpose of a wso is to create a legion of followers who do nothing but buy wsos all day.
    this is what maximizes the profit for the wso creator.

    towards this end, the more overhyped a wso is, and the more it's actual content sucks, the better it fulfills this purpose.
    the initial hype is designed to create hope and anticipation and something for the client to relentlessly chase after.

    if the product actually delivers on this promise, then there is no further need for the client to buy any more products.
    if instead, the product gives the client bits and pieces of what he's looking for, but never the whole thing, then the client will continue to pursue the dream, thinking that the big secret is right around the corner.

    I guess it would not be wrong to say that at Warrior Forum, common sense is not really so common to a lot of people (who buy wso's).

    They keep buying WSO's thinking they will get to know the right method and earn thousands of dollars through it...

    where as, in reality, the WSO creators earn piles of cash each week fooling more and more people...

    Awesome image Tacopalypse !

    The really smart people skim over the "idea" that is in the WSO and then figure out how they can plug it in to their set up, twist it a bit and improve on it.

    I agree with GiftGuru above. I have learned a lot of useful info from WSO's (that I downloaded, never actually purchased one). However, their step by step methods are usually crap. Just take the general idea and make it work for you.

    Strange how all the text went green, lol.

    The best WSOs are where someone shares a personal case study.

    Now you can't expect them to give away all the goods, would any of you do that? Of course not. But at least you get the concept. For $7 to $27, a concept that will work is actually worth it.

    I'm not talking about the rehashed shit btw. I'm talking about the unique nuggets type WSO. Yeah the whole method isn't there but what did you freakin expect, to get your dick held for $17 lol!
