    I don't think I'm allowed to post links but if you go on fiverr and type in 'make money online' then sort by rating you'll get a list of gigs. Tons of them, offering to make you thousands of dollars with all manner of different ideas from ebay to amazon to yahoo to pinterest to clickbank and beyond all with great ratings from many users saying the gig was as promised. They all make bold claims of big cash and people seem to be satisfied with them.

    Most seem to good to be true to me. Anyone ordered any of these gigs and made any cash?

    Probably the same thing as most WSOs.

    Yeah, people are satisfied and leave good reviews... until they see a few days/weeks later that it isn't as simple as they thought to get rich online, and it's too late to change their reviews on fiverr.

    No.. they won't make you rich. They probably copy and paste methods from BHW / WSOs / and put it together.

    The customers are probably satisfied because when they read it, it may seem easy but when they actually go ahead and try the method they find out that it is harder than what
    they may have been thinking.

    I'm new here, What does WSO stand for?

    I think this could be the case but you'd think people would wait and see that it actually worked before leaving a review.

    WSO = Warrior's Special Offer, it's a really ridiculous name, but fits perfectly as almost all WSO's are complete bullshit. And the only one's that aren't, are the one's not selling a method but just giving general advice on IM.

    And yup, people leave great reviews because they're stuck in the beginner phase of IM. They buy up whatever they can on hopes of learning the "secret" get rich quick method, when they read it, it sounds amazing, it's step by step, they promise to take action and they either:

    1. Don't take action (not that it matters because by the time they buy the method for $5 it's way too late to put it to use)
    2. Take action, fail, and then blame themselves since if it worked for the seller, and didn't work for them, then obviously it's their fault.

    Not to be a douche, but - you are definitely new here. About 99% of all of those "money makin" ebooks online are bs, and essentially tell you to sell money makin ebooks. I can count on one hand the number I would consider legitimate - not sure if I am aloud to name them here.

    WSO = Warrior Special Offer - sold on another forum we don't speak of here. Trust me when I say BHW is a bazillion times better.

    Good Luck in your journey, and you should know this: Most people DON'T have what it takes. So do some soul searching, and if this is really what you want to do, COMMIT RIGHT NOW. Or don't. It's not gonna make any difference to me. But it will make all the difference for you. You got BHW in your corner. Use Her wisely.

    I've got to agree with this, the only reason you should ever buy a method is to get the creative juice flowing (and even then, you should probably just read the "money making" section here instead).

    TIP: NO ONE IS GOING TO GIVE YOU A METHOD TO MAKE MONEY.

    They may give you the niche, or the "method that worked 3 months ago" but no one's going to give you their bread or butter (fuck giving you both). Be diligent and work hard and you'll reap the rewards, it really is that simple. The problem is most people think the internet = make money instantly without any work, and that's just not true.

    It's good that you found this place. Stay away from make-money WSOs and ebooks. Most are really bad. I've bought a few decent WSOs before but they weren't make-money guides.

    There are a lot of people that make their money only by "teaching" you how to make money.

    Use your head Why would someone give thousands of dollar idea for 5$? If you can answer that then you are in a right place :D

    For all the people saying use your common sense, no ones gonna give away a profitable method for $5 etc I'm well aware of that hence my skepticism (but people do give away methods on here for FREE so selling it for $5 isn't too hard to imagine). The topic was to find out why, if these gigs are worthless, do they all have glowing reviews. Surely someone would test the gig first, wait to see if it works BEFORE saying it's the greatest thing ever. It's not that I want to believe I'm going to get rich from buying a fiverr gig, I know the chances of that are slim to none, I was just curious on peoples opinions on why people are so apparently satisfied with them.

    You can always get friends etc to purchase your gig and leave great reviews, you can even pay people to buy your gig.

    They may also be asking buyers to leave a positive review in exchange for a free 'bonus', which they presume will help them make even more money.

    Yeah they are just copying stuff from forums and make them a small ebook. They also gather referrals that way. As they promise to help you more if you sign up under them!

    They usually tell you about a website you can swap youtube views on or whatever and when you buy it, they say they'll give you free credit on the website if you leave a positive review.
