    My ebook is 50$ and I only want to sell 500 copies my. I've sold 190 as of today. My problem is that if I turn it into wso it will get leaked and shared. The method might get saturated if sold to over 500 people. Anyway what do you think I should do?

    Funny you're asking the sharing community of BHW in helping you make a decision. You gotta realize that it will be shared. Just put enough affliliate links in it that the 25th person who gets your ebook might click through to your link. No hate, just love.
    cheers!

    A WSO, lol... Really? Just make it, everyone at Warrior Forum is a joke they'll buy anything and everything. It's quite honestly the biggest scam and no one has ethics, just pushing sales with washed up re-written material. Fake reviews, fake everything. So yes, please go ahead and sell it, you'll break 500 sold easily they will buy anything like hot cakes regardless of how stupid/horrible it is.

    I don't think you understood my question. Of course I can sell over 500 copies but I don't want the method to get saturated

    It's saturated the moment you sell it.
    ^^^Life fact.

    So yeah, go for it ... if you have no ethic at all

    Your comment makes no sense then. If its saturated the moment I sell what would be the difference if I sell more copies? Why wouldn't I be ethical?

    EVERYTHING in IM is saturated. Lets stop for a moment and think how many people are there with websites now? A ton. People just don't take the time to do things correctly.. Your WSO won't get stolen, if it's posted on BHW just ask a mod to remove it? There are NO secrets in IM everything is out there, it's all laid out but people don't want to take the time to find or research it. So go ahead, sell your WSO to these people who are just complete idiots, make your sales and call it a day.

    How can you say he has no ethics just because he wants to make it a WSO? Who's to say his ebook doesnt contain some good material?

    Personally I would sell it, on wso. The people who get a cracked version wouldn't of paid for it anyway. Where are you selling the ebook at the moment? If it's not on IM forums then that's more of a good enough reason to go with the WSO

    Pass out a fee review copies (hint, hint) and get testimonials. If saturation is an issue, you might want to rethink the WSO, or make it a get-on-the-bandwagon-while-the-getting-is-good type deal. If the WSO comes out and hits saturation immediately, you will get a ton of refund requests from people who claim the method doesn't work. Of course you will also get a ton of orders from people who will never even read the whole thing, and never know if it works or not, and they will not ask for refunds.

    I"m willing to give a solid testimonial about your method, as long as it doesn't have anything to do with adult stuff.

    I think there are some good WSOs it's just that for every really good one there are about 100 that are absolutely terrible.

    Another thing is that while you can sell a lot through a WSO, people expect everything to be super cheap.

    You could publish the exact formula Google uses for their search rankings along with 50 case studies showing how to implement it and succeed 100% of the time and if you charge $50 or more, most of the posts on your WSO thread will be people complaining that it is too expensive! :)

    Perhaps you could try selling a limited version of your ebook, something like showing one specific technique (one of your best "secrets") with a case study or two for like $7 -$17 and then upsell to the full version from within the report.

    That way you don't get your whole strategy saturated, you appease the "low cost" gods of the WSO forum, people that steal and pass around your WSO are actually helping you market the full version, and weed out some of the tire kickers since those buying your full report via WSO would be people that have already spent money with you.

    Plus you make a little money from selling the Lite version on top of that.

    I've seen this kind of appraoch with some software vendors where a "cracked" version is leaked on all the forums but it is actually an earlier version of the software and not the newest version. People use the cracked version, see that there is an updated version with new features, can't find a cracked version of the newsest version so go and buy it. There is actually some article about this I read somewhere from someone that was doing this to market his software with a lot of success.

    If you are worried about getting leaked then turn your ebook into a membership course. This way the risk will get lowered to 75%. And also $50 is pretty high price for a WSO.

    Wow, if you have a method and you don't want it to get saturated then don't share it. If I had a steady income from a method I wouldn't share it unless I couldn't execute it anymore or the revenue started to fall off. Your trying to have it both ways and that doesn't work.

    I don't need to do the method anymore I make much much more selling the ebook. I'm going to sell 500 in august. 50$ each. The reason I don't want it to get saturated is for the buyers

    Can you create variations on the technique and edit the ebook for different groups of readers to spread them out a bit?
