    Hi Guys, I was wondering if someone here has experience with making some profits with a WSO.
    I have written a script to pick out the hottest trends in Google and display them and I would like to sell it on there.
    Any advice that's helpful I would really appreciate.

    If you plan to sell something actually useful, then don't sell it as a WSO.

    You need rep and you need to get all your cronies to mail for you too, WSO success is all about mastering the circle jerk.

    While I think it does help to know people on the WF, that's not necessary for success. I've launched a few WSOs in the past and probably made $8K overall with maybe a quarter of that paid as affiliate commissions. When I did mine, it was still only $20 to post and rebump a listing before Allen the Greedy raised the price to $40. Now you have to be more careful with timing and pricing because the fees can really eat up your profits. Try to keep your quality high (which shouldn't be too hard since the bar is pretty low these days) and minimize your refund ratio. Don't put out crap; there's enough of that out there already.
