New to this Forum - Need advice

Hello, I have seen some much promising sellers in the marketplace.

I had a bad experience with sellers in a different forum. There, people promise thousands of dollars per month and you hardly make a hundred with their methods.

I would like an honest answer regarding that matter. Are the products here just clickbait titles and catchy articles?

I can't afford losing any more money so any honest answer by members here would be welcome.

    I have bought many WSOs (Warrior Special Offers). Many are good, and I have used some to make money. Others I just learned from and it added to my general knowledge.

    I'm one of those that believe that most WSOs work if we work them the right way. The same goes for diet plans, exercise programs, marriage improvement systems, get better grades classes, improve your career seminars, etc.

    However, I stay away from those WSOs promising big bucks which is most of them.

    I stick to things I need. I buy from need and logic not emotion. The sellers are masters at making folks want what they are selling so bad that they are willing to be late on the rent so they can learn this new method - gotta have it TODAY!

    I also use common sense. I believe a person can make $10,000 doing ___ under the right circumstances. But it ain't happening without hard work (stay away from the easy peasy lies), skills, knowledge, mindset, etc.

    In short, the same types of sellers you faced at the other place are here too. Maybe the exact same ones.

    The question is did you fail before because of a faulty product or did you fail because you didn't follow it fully, didn't stick to it, didn't do what was needed including adjusting your direction, etc?

    Thank you both for your replies.
    @Mark Singletary, thank you for warning me about the fact that this marketplace has it's own share of agressive advertisers.

    As far as your question, I stick to any plan as long as it does not lets you crash and burn with vague guidelines like "google for niches and google for traffic sources".

    I guess I will do what you do. First think what I need next and then go to purchase it. I can't really bother with people that promise that they will guide me from point A to point Z all the way.

      well it depends on the price point, nobody will take you all the way for $9.97

      however sometimes there are WSO's that cost 1000's and are worth that much

      besides, once i got one for $9.97 that was worth so much more....

    Try some common sense.

    Paying money to someone else that claims you'll make money is obviously a scam considering the seller doesn't have a clue what you're capable of doing.

    If you are starting out new, i will advice you to search on this forum for threads that some people have posted trying to help others out...many of such threads are evergreen and are still very relevant and can point you in the right direction

    Of course there are lots of sellers that promises to help you make millions of dollars within minutes of reading their books, most of the time their promises are worthless and you never get a dime.

    Nevertheless, if because of these few individual you decided not to buy any wso again, you might be missing out from buying genuine and practically workable wso's that could really make you some money.

    there are still good ways to make thousands its just that its difficult to get good information from people, when checking out methods to make online, do not go for offers which over-promise a lot, for example an offer that says [make $1000 in a day] only a few offers like that are real

    Unfortunately like anything and anywhere else - there are good, decent, and no so good products.

    The biggest thing to remember with making money online is that different things work for different people. Some people might be awesome with making money from youtube videos but will not be so great with paid traffic. Some people might be awesome with PPV, but not be good with PPC.

    The same can even be said for niches and offers. I've seen people who love gaming who can't make money from gaming offers, where as I've seen people who have never played a game in their life, make a ton of money.

    My biggest recommendation if you are looking to learn to make money - find someone who's STILL making money with the way they are teaching you.

    The sad thing is that most of us have lost money at some point. Many of us have felt swindled at some point. At some point, you will learn who are some of the people to do business with and who you should probably avoid.

    If you are considering buying something on another forum, do a search on that forum for the user name and find out if that person is reputable or not.

    Also, don't forget the value of this forum, it is the largest in the industry. There is a good chance that the person you are considering buying from has been mentioned on this forum. Its an excellent research tool.

    I would stop looking at WSOs, marketing emails and "get rich quick" schemes....

    Next, grab Eric Louviere's free book, The Best Damn Internet Marketing Book Ever Written. Read through it five to six times…. Forget about EVERYTHING else. Focus ONLY on Eric’s book. It will be an eye opener as to what you need to do next.

    Welcome. Do your research on the product and product owner before you "invest" If your brand new so to speak instead of buying something right off the bat Id do some research using both youtube and google and understand how the whole business works.

    Thank you all for your complete answers.
    Special thanks to desley.
    What I got out of this thread can be summarised in these points
    1) Have a plan before considering buying anything. Avoid buying "plans" and "blueprints".
    2) Consider alternative products and services. Give time in the research.
    3) Check the seller's history and past deals. Avoid dealing with sellers that have unsatisfied clients.

    Fact is, not all WSO promises what they say but there are still a few good ones.
    I have read many newbies turn pro said, "WSO fast tracked there learning process.

    That's the reality. It also pays to understand how IM works before keying seriously into
    any of the WSOs out there..

      Yes, I understand that.
      I get a feel that I am being lured sometimes. Phrases like "wouldn't you like to make a high amount of money?" look like an effort to force the sale on me.

        No one can force any sale on you. You are an adult with free will.

        Don't blame anyone else for your bad decisions. There are no secret, or proven or guaranteed success formulas, regardless of what people will tell you. If there was such a thing everyone would be rich and there would be no need for this forum.

        Everyone wants to sell you something and most will tell you whatever it is they think you want to hear to make you believe that they can create your dream income stream.

        A fair amount of common-sense is required to make it through life. You look like a grown man in your avatar. Stop acting like a babe in the woods.

          I do not appreciate your comment. If you think that I act like a babe in the woods then I think that you act like a scammer with a guilty conscience trying to feel better about himself by saying "Everyone wants to sell you something and most will tell you whatever it is they think you want to hear".

            James, Big Frank has never sold anything here that I'm aware of and doesn't even have anything in his signature for sale.

            Even if he comes across as harsh, sometimes/all the time, most of what he says is true and helpful.

            When I saw your comment about being forced to buy something because of a phrase, the first thought that came to mind was exactly what Frank said. No one can control you. No one forces you to put in your CC number. Period.

            I don't know what you have done business wise, but I can guess that most of what you have been buying are things that you don't need. Focus on what you need - AFTER you know what you need. And by need, I don't mean want or false hope. I mean need.

            Mark

            You can think whatever you like. It's a free country. By the same token I can make a comment based on what you have posted, whether you appreciate it or not. That's what people do on public forums. You post and we get to respond, whether you appreciate our comments or not. I believe my comment accurately reflects the fact that you are looking to blame everyone but yourself for you bad decisions.

            Your comment about what you think of me would be valid if I were attempting to sell something, to you or anyone else. I'm not. That said. I'm a grown man that takes responsibility for his own actions without looking to blame everyone else for them.

            If you are a grown man, please start acting like one, instead of a 13 year old.

            Enjoy the rest of your day. :-)

    I don't really like guides that promise lot of "easy" money since most of the time they don't work. I know that it's good marketing move to advertise with something like "earn $10.000 per week doing..." but in the reality it's not so easy. I like more guides that promise normal amount of money, mention that it will not be simple and contain real and useful tips.

    I have never purchased a WSO or even looked at any.

    But I do have experience selling stuff online.

    Here are 3 Rules (that have helped me):

    1- Find a product to sell that 'resonates' with you. If you see value in a product (for yourself), you have the ability to sell it to others. Keep in MIND that some marketers are sociopaths who can sell stuff (even if they don't see or care if their product contains value).

    2- Pick (1) Marketing Method (that you honestly feel that you can do), learn it and Master it! Mastering it means that you have invested so much time and energy into this marketing method that it not only produces traffic and leads but sales.

    3- Produce: Become a Producer who consumes content and training in 20% of your time allotted to your business building and 80% on taking 'Action' on what you learned by 'implementing' what you learned into your marketing.

    Successful Marketing comes down to a 'process'. Are you going through the full process? Have you even started?

    yea, you got scammers everywhere and/or underwhelming products.

    BUT there is a marketing lesson and a lesson on sells copy every time you buy something

    be vigilant of the things you buy and WHY you buy them, use those same triggers when you sell something.

    Most of them offer a money back guarantee so you have nothing to lose.

    I sold almost 1000 of mine I i got like less than 10 refunds in total, so I guess the value is good.

    Just look at the reviews and use your common sense...
