Default *SPECIAL WSO COMPETITION* WIN $500 TODAY!!!!

Hey Guys,

Well I am running a special competition for you warriors because I will be launching my $600k in 7 days launch diary to the public very soon.

So because of that I need some KILLER testimonials which is where you guys come in.

So hear is the deal, I am going to be running a competition where whoever makes the best testimonial will win $500 in paypal cash.

2nd and 3rd place will also get some really cool stuff as well.

All you need to do is create a testimonial about my launch diary, which if you haven't already you can get it at the special wso price here:

http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...xact-step.html

That is a LOT cheaper then what it will be when I launch this to the public.

Now there are a couple rules:

Your testimonial MUST be in video

The reason for that is it's too easy to fake written testimonials so I want real people sitting in front of their computers giving real testimonials. So your testimonial must be in video if you want to win.

You MUST of actually read my report.

I am assuming most of you will of already got your hands on this as it's been a wso for a while now and I have made a lot of sales but I don't want you to just fake it and talk trash in the hope that you will win. I want REAL testimonials and real honest reviews, so if I can tell you haven't actually read it you won't win the competition.

The competition will probably run for a week or so depending on how many entries I get.

I will announce the winner here on this thread and also contact them personally.

Even if you don't win the contest I still might possibly use your video in my launch.

Also if you have a website you would like to promote send me the link in the email with your video and if I decide to use your testimonial I will include a link back to your site on my sales page.

Also don't forget to include your name.

Ok so all you need to do is create a video testimonial and send it to this address:



wsocompetition@gmail.com



If you have any questions feel free to ask here on the thread or PM. Please don't send questions to the email address above, that is only for testimonials.

Thanks guys and good luck

Tristan

I'm sure you'll get plenty of people desperate for the $500 and all claiming " I would have done it for free anyway " but bottom line , however it's dressed up this is bribing people for testimonials Tristan.

You actually have a decent product from some of the feedback I've read, paying people for testimonials under any guise, competition or otherwise doesn't sit well, I'm sure some of your customers would have done so for free. I wouldn't put any credence into a product that I actually know people have been given cash to make the testimonials for.

You have zero way of knowing if any earnings they claim are actually accurate or they are simply saying it to get into your wallet.

Surely as this is a competition and to have a chance to win it you have to buy the WSO this isnt really a WSO and shouldnt be in this section?

I already have a heap of testimonials for this product and I have a whole thread here full of testimonials so I am not worried about the credibility of my product.

The main reason is because I want video testimonials, most people are happy to provide a testimonial but it requires a little more effort to do a video so this is just a little extra incentive.

I actually got the idea from a very well known guru in this niche who does this sort of thing all the time and it hasn't hurt his sales so I think I'll be fine

Alot of people already have the product and I know if I give it away for free I'll get a heap of people downloading it but most of them wont do a testimonial. It's a good product anyway you should buy it

I would probably just contact buyers of your product and offer the incentive to them. Or better yet, just contact the folks that have already given you a written testie and make them this offer.

You know how stuff starts. Now ppl will be talking about how The Bull pays for his testies. I'd 86 this thread ASAP. Just my opinion of course...

Same, I've read enough of Tristans posts and how he generally responds under fire to know he's a decent guy, but this was an error of judgement IMHO.

It couldn't be more blatant, give me a raving testimonial for my product and I'll pay you..

Not good...

Ditch this thread and go personally to your audience as Don suggested.

My three cents..

Have to agree with the others here I'm afraid. Seems like a really good way to bait people up to provide testimonials, and even if they don't win you are "possibly" going to use them anyway. I suspect that "possibly" means "definatley" in this case.

Also I have no idea what the WSO here is. We are providing YOU with something, not the other way around, so I can't see an offer here at all.

i actually think its a clever way to boost sales for a product he has had on this forum for a while now.

its kind of like giving the people on the fence a little extra budge. maybe they were not sure about the product, but now. they should buy it, read it and take action, and give a testimonial which could give them more money.

interesting marketing idea, i like it. even if that was not your intent, and the other warriors may disagree. But I think its definitely an interesting way to put a fire under a product.

good luck!

Hmm...Not sure about this one. So if I buy your WSO for $27 and presumably like it enough to make a video testimonial - that you judge the best - you'll pay me $500? In "a week or so"? How long a video? What format? And what exactly is "really cool stuff" for 2nd and 3rd place? You wouldn't be trying to bribe me would you?

BTW your head says "Win $500 today" which is a bit misleading don't you think?

For Tristan its a win/win. People buy his WSO, he gets great testimonials from people who skim read the product and pays $500, which would be lolly money for Tristan. I couldnt care less how anyone gets testimonials because as most people know almost all testimonials are bs anyway.

Hi Tristan,
thx for the offer but I think it is not for me to make a paid survey.
Sorry, but not everything for sale.
If there is something on this forum like this, I mean, people buying WSOs after reading others testimonials that are paid by the WSOs issuer, it is a fraud.

Good luck

Buying testimonials or paying people for testimonials is not a good business practice,thread should be closed i guess.
