    I've been thinking of setting up a WSO as a way to make some cash. I took a peek over there and saw that it's pretty much like BHW's BST... pay the fee, make a post.

    Is anyone here familiar with the process? Are there any extra hoops involved?

    If I make an account and go to post a WSO, will I be allowed to? Will anyone pay attention to it... or will they ignore it because I'm new and have no rep?

    How easy is it to sell 100 copies of a report? 500?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to help me out on this :p

    If you are new you won't have much luck. You can give away some review copies to reputable members and if they write good testimonials for you then you can sell a lot

    You should buy an account with posts and good rep before you try to sell. If your account already has some respect around WF it shouldn't be too hard to sell something. Getting 100+ sales could take you a long while though.

    Any suggestions on where I might be able to buy an account? How about price range to get a decent account?

    Basically, I'm hoping to sell 50 copies within 5 days @ $17.

    Since I know nothing about their forum, how plausible is that?

    As a newbie in the warrior forum it would depend on the quality of your wso.

    First of all I think its only a 20 or 25 dollar investment to post your wso....if your product is good, you'll easily get your money back.

    I'm pretty sure you can go to the main forum and offer your report/product to "x" number of people for reviews. You could place criteria on who can get a product....you know.....over 500 posts or member for 3 years.

    If you get some good reviews you can use them in your wso.

    If you have the time, since your new, a better strategy would be to put up a 5 dollar product.....make sure its something of value....run it for some exposure. Then do your 17 dollar product.

    As most BHW know, those guys over at the warrior forum can be real a-holes...they are quite ruthless. Put out a good product though, service it and you'll become a hero overnight.

    Good luck

    Yeah the thing with Warrior Forum is that when they sell the WSO's people buy them because of the seller's reputation. You may have to establish yourself first to get a lot of sales.

    There are some who make a TON with WSOs, find out who they are, what sells and how they do it. While I have not bought a WF account, certainly not one with a high post count etc., there might be some BHW members who are also WF members. Ask around, so some searching etc. One thing for sure, you won't make a killing on WSOs as a newbie. Just like here, reputation counts.

    Here is what I suggest. Sign up with the WF. Monitor the WSO thread and take note of what is selling and their process for selling.

    Make sure your product is good or that will be it. Your reputation is everything.

    You will need testimonials. You will need to be credible.

    While the WF has been bashed at times here, there can be some really good things on it as well.

    The War Room CAN have some access to products that you might be surprised to find there.......

    Some people will bash BHW, outright. But, WE know that there are some really good things, here.

    You may not be able to sell your product as quickly as you think. Then again, you may.

    A lot of the members are Black Hat adverse.....if you know what I mean. So, if it is something BH, I would forget it.

    Actively participate (just like here).....ask questions. Don't be pretentious......and DO NOT MENTION BH! Basically, there is very little way out of getting around the post count rules there.

    So, start with your product. Ask yourself, would you buy it, if offered by someone else?

    And go from there......I sure wish that I had come up the the WSO system that the WF has set up.......you do the math on both the original thread being approved to subsequent bumps and multiply it by how many offers and those offering.....it is well over 60K per month or more on that simple idea alone.

    I hope this helps and good luck.

    Thanks alot, that was really concise, and really useful.

    My method isn't black hat, though black hats could definitely apply it. Based on what everyone is saying though, this won't fit my time frame, so I'll put it on the back burner.

    Thanks again everybody, this was some great info. You've all reminded me why I love BHW. Not even three hours after posting, and I learned everything I needed to make a decision :)
