    Is it really that easy?

    I've seen dozens of god awful WSO's, like this one:

    Code:
    http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-special-offers-forum/522530-struggling-newbie-desperate-fast-cash-today-click-here-now.html
    
    And has pages of responses... and the product itself is 20 pages of triple-spaced 22 point font PDF with 60 smiley faces scattered throughout.

    ... and selling for $17. And this is one of the better ones of the ones I've seen.

    Is the bar really this low? Is it easy making a killing putting out mediocre WSO's once every couple of weeks?

    I have wanted to get into doing simple WSO's as well.

    All you have to do is take an existing WSO, use a thesaurus and change every word, and then design the sales letter in MS-Paint!

    My biggest peice of advice to you would be; get decent sales copy. No matter how good your product is, if the sales copy doesn't convert then nobody will be buying it.

    ^This.
    I often read WSO ebooks, and trust me, there are hardly a few ebooks that I can say that provide original ideas. Most seem to have pretty much the same thing lol. I guess they initially made article spinners popular :p
    Profits from selling these WSO highly depends on how good a sales copy you can make and how many appreciate what you've written there.
