Is This Even Allowed on the Warrior Forum? WSO' Gone Wild!

17 replies
Ok,, hey all,,

I just bought a wso I was looking at (for a buck ,, yes $1)

However, when I went to the so called "product" it was just video saying what you need to BUY to make the method work with a bunch of THEIR AFFILIATE LINKS under the video!
I didn't know that was legal? (Sheesh,, lookout for my next affiliate wso)

Ok, and, I've been seeing wso's that are just affiliates that are "REPRESENTATIVES" of the company and all these people do is try to get you to join their biz opp, or whatever crappy mlm they are offering. (EMPOWER NETWORK comes to mind.) So, basically, their wso is about joining their network under them,, how do you say,,, LAME!

Go, have a look, I was there for 4 minutes and came across at least 3 like this. Since when can you just have people buy AFFILIATE memberships or be sent directly to a page with nothing but affiliate links? WTF?!!!!

And watch, someone will probably complain about me complaining here. But, daaaaaaaaaaaammmmnnn,,,,, what's happened here?

I make plenty of cash with my businesses, hand over fist,,, HOWEVER,, I like to come here and search for ideas to make it better and or easier. (not that it's hard) but I like automation. So what I'm saying is I don't need the WF, but I LIKE the WF and I like the people here most of all.

But, I've noticed people are shoveling out products that are garbage. Notice this if you haven't,,, I see a lot of product creators claiming to be from certain areas (US) but, their English writing sounds like it's very foreign and a lot of testimonials will sound very broken as well, eve though they claim to be from Texas. (HA!)

Seriously, go check out the wso's and you'll start to see what I mean. Garbage with garbage testimonials. See how I write? It's like we're having a conversation. Not like this:

It like have we conversations a. <---------- = Bad English but from Texas (my A$$)

Personally, I don't care if your English blows, just have a good product that gives me, and all of us on the Warrior Forum VALUE!

Moderators,, stop watching what everyone's SAYING here and why don't you look at what people are trying to SELL to people over there. Shouldn't that be a way BIGGER concern for you no-life, judgemental hacks? I mean c'mon!,,
FOR THE SAKE OF THE QUALITY OF THE FORUM!

Thank you. I feel better now.

p.s. Newbies and friends, get off the vicious cycle of selling how to do Internet Marketing to people who don't know Internet Marketing when you don't know Internet Marketing. It's killing Internet Marketing. (That's why I'm focusing on Offline at the moment,,, killing it!)

    It was only $1. What did you expect?

    The product creator offered you a system and told you what you needed to buy to put the system in place. This product will save you time as you don't need to do the research.

    Worth the $1. Well as long as the products mentioned and the system in question are proven to work.

    Cheers,

      That depends. If I purchase anything, I want to be able to accomplish what was promised.

      Price has no factor in that desired outcome.

      Once purchased and I am told I need to purchase other products to get the outcome already promised to me is what we call a scam.

      They failed to deliver on their promise for the price asked. They are scamming people.

      A note: I don't know which offer the OP is talking about nor what was promised.

      Spoken like a true CRAP PRODUCT developer. thanks for the input.

      This is exactly the BS I'd expect to hear from the douche bag so called product creator. I don't think you C G that you understand that this NO PRODUCT ONLY said what to buy and had affiliate links ONLY. NO VALUE WHAT-SO-EVER!

      No content, no nothing!

      Are you getting it now?

      And like I said, affiliates from other so called companies like, Empower Network come here and try to get their MLM leads here. they offer NO VALUE!!!

      That's not YOUR OWN PRODUCT!!!! How the hell are they allowed to advertise in a WSO, THAT NONSENSE?

      Dude, I tried to give away FREE content on how to rank better in Google and I got banned for a month.? What gives here? But, I never knew i could "create" a WSO that is PURELY about joining my MLM team. No value,, just hey,, join my affiliate team,, My MLM Team and,, PAY TO get access to how to join?

      Does anyone get what I'm saying here? Where's Alexa Smith when I need a smart marketer? Someone who understands. I can't believe what this guy here has said (above) BAd wannabe marketer! Bite your tongue!

      K,, off to make my $1000 a day. Bored and pissed. But mainly ,,,, DISAPPOINTED

      I love you all here,, except the Douche bag lame ass "product" creators.

    Wow! I can't believe people actually do that! I would have been leery of the price associated with the product, though.

    I agree that there are a lot of people who are selling crappy products, and I'm not sure that the admins of the forums are willing to take their time and gover each product, it's too time consuming. That's why there are refunds etc. Ultimately everyone who posts a wso product on this forum wants to earn money, it's business and it's understandable. However it's not good to just shove your affiliate links, you need to actually teach people something they could go and run with and get results, without necessarily buying your tools or systems.

      A lot = 99.9% these days.

      I see almost nothing on this site that's worth a crap anymore. I come here for the conversation, not the junky "products" being swapped here. Most are just mind vomit "courses" from novices that have a "Google degree".

      It's sad.

        Are you sure you are from Nova Scotia?

        I bet the OP doesn't think so. With your type of English you must be someone from a third world country. Stop pretending that you are from North America or the OP is going to get real mad lol

    First.. Obviously I don't endorse shit crappy products.

    That being said, I actually don't see anything wrong if my product was something along the lines of
    "How I generated XYZ or whatever crap case study" and actually show you the products I promoted with affiliate link (Say EN for example) and say if you want the same results purchase it EN.

    It's a case study not a how to.

    Again, I obviously don't know what product you bought but for $1. If I learn nothing then so be it but if it pisses me off like what happen to you, just leave a bad review + request a refund for the sake of it.

    Refunds are there so sellers understand that they need to deliver what they promise.

    My advice for anyone purchasing a WSO. Ask specific questions on what to expect after the purchase and if it sounds good. Buy it! If it delivers, everyone is happy. If not, please LEAVE A BAD REVIEW AND REQUEST A REFUND! If all buyers do this, I'm sure all those crappy shit product won't exist

    Even if it was technically allowed or legal it does cast the warrior forum in a bad light, something that it doesn't deserve. Therefore I would hope that similar offers would be discouraged in the future.

    I've always been a bit anti-WSO because the majority is crap. I know you and I aren't the only ones that think that, so it's kind of surprising there are so few product creators out there offering massive value.

    I get people sending me review copies all the time but the truth is, they don't really want my honest review lol. Most are garbage.

    At least you only paid $1. There are people that pay much more than that and never get the money back.

    Yes, I wasted time. It's not the money, I have spent $1 to $500 on products and courses,, ( and the $500 courses were just as bad,,, not all but some) It usually depended on WHO was releasing the product.

    And, I will continue to seek out further education by way of Internet Marketing courses, training, coaching, and whatever else I can find that is worth a shit. Ya know, I have developed a system that I usually use when seeking out "knowledge" from people who know what they're doing.

    I simply go to the Review section here,, after the hype dies down and people either start having problems with a product or have success. I also go to Google and Youtube to see what folks are saying about the "products". I find that if you do your "due diligence" you will find anything you want to know about a product.

    So do it! Don't settle for crap. I try not to., but sometimes I get caught up in the hype and fall for the "hurry up, it's only here for 24 more hrs" B.S. that I FULLY KNOW is a IM sales tactic! (Dumbass!)

    Know that marketing,, ALL MARKETING consists of relatively few tactics to get it right. There really is a system, and it consists of hard work and implementing a few time tested strategies that have worked for decades. Find a need, fill that need. Simple. It' s been around hundreds of years

    (A bit off topic here but..) I actually saw a sample of a scam for a "prince" needing money from like 200 years ago. (scams too have been around..... and no I'm not kidding, I read it in Quora)

    Anyways,, this is why I've been doing some SERIOUS OFFLINE sh*t. Because I'm getting tired (at the moment) of the online bullshit. Internet marketing is really sucky and it's becoming sucky'er. It reminds me of the 80's when the "Hair Bands" flooded the music industry. It turned to shit. Everyone was doing the same thing,, and what happened? Nirvana (the new thing) came and destroyed the entire rock-n-Roll industry that existed.

    That's EXACTLY what Internet Marketing needs. We need an EXTREME shift. And I think I am finding out where this "marketing" is heading in 2015 and beyond. I'm starting to see it everywhere.

    It's the NEW INTERNET MARKETING in every way. Out with the old and in with the new.

    Here comes 2015.

    Way back in the days when I first found the forum and had 'Newbie' written through me like a stick of Brighton rock, I joined a private members group that was receiving rave reviews as a WSO. The guy who ran it was so clueless that even I could see almost see the gap between his ears. One of the things he recommended was that his audience flipped sites that had not just 'borrowed' images from other sites, but hotlinked to them. It still makes me shudder a bit to think of that one.

    The more experienced members shouted him down but it was all done behind the closed doors of the group. I didn't really know any better at the time, but to this day I still wonder why not one paying customer thought to mention on the WSO thread that he didn't know his article from his elbow. Dodgy WSOs are nothing new, but I'd like to think I'd be a bit more vocal about it now if I encountered one.

      I've been vocal about it here before in the past.

      What happened was either
      (A) The "reviewers" of the product all posted the typical "ignore this person, it works fine" garbage.
      (B) I was told that I'm either not doing it right, or not working hard enough
      (C) The post just outright disappeared. (Rogue moderators?) And this is the main reason I quit buying anything here. This site was an accomplice, as far as I was concerned. I guess protecting the WSO seller was more important than protecting the members. I wasn't vulgar, rude, or anything. I was Joe Friday: "Just the facts ma'am."

      Again, sad.

    Hi Robert X.
    There are always hustlers out there that are willing to sell you snake oil and then move on to the next victim. The best thing is to try an avoid those and help others avoid those. Which is what you are doing with your post. Thank you for that by the way Robert X. My best advice is buy from someone that has a proven record someone that you know has delivered on hat they promise. How do you find those ? You do research on those you are interested in even if the offer is just one dolar. you can ask around in the forums that you visit and google them. Like doing a search like "product name" followed by keywords like scam or something like that. Then there is one golden rule if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. You can learn a lot from people that are reputable for free. most of the big merketers are giving away lots of quality content and ways to earn money so look for those and if you like what they are offering then you might consider buying from them. do not jump on the next offer that sounds good without doing some research on it first.
    Best of luck to you

    How exactly? Buying $1 junk products?

    If the above quote were true, you would have chuckled and moved on.

    Why do you care what people are selling? Big time successes like yourself don't need to buy "money making" info., right?
