Attention: To All WSO Creators and Those That Want To Be.

10 replies
I have been noticing a lot of WSOs are poorly written. They are filled with spelling and grammar errors. I, personally, have written to the OPs to bring this to their attention. Most don't seem to care. In their rush to publish their WSO, they overlook these errors and present a product that looks unprofessional and cheap.

Well now there is a solution and it is FREE! It is Grammarly.com. This is a Chrome extension that can work on different platforms. All it requires is a small investment in time on the part of the OPs to produce a product anyone can be proud of.

P.S. No, I am not an affiliate of Grammarly nor did I create it.

    People who produce solid work don't produce 'WSO's.

    They produce products.

    The 'WSO' is a mere sideline offer.

      The ntentionall misspelling of selected words and colloqualized grammar are actually subtly effective marketing techniques for drawing traffic, just as you have so inadvertently illustrated.

      Many WSOs are purposely misspelled also for SEO. Do a search for the most commonly misspelled words, and try using them (sparingly) in your own promotional copy.

        That is an old, extremely outdated SEO technique. With Google's auto-correct on search queries, that is a total waste of time now.

        Same goes for every other major search engine on the planet.

        I don't think the OP was referring to the product title or sales copy. I think it was more about the actual product quality, such as an e-book with lots of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes or a badly produced video.

      And when did you see a solid work that wasn't proofread for spelling or grammar errors?

        The point is that people who dedicate time to their solid 'products', don't launch them exclusively as 'WSO's, so you can expect the traits you note.

        A rush job can still hold fantastic information and indeed, when it does, there's no time, nor need to be worrying about spelling and grammar.

    As long as it's clear that the product being sold via a WSO will make people money quickly without having to work then all is well. Grammar? Fuggedaboutit.

      The problem with not taking the time to check spelling and grammar is that it creates a muddled, cloudy product. For me, it diminishes the quality of the product. The OP doesn't care enough to make it easy to read. Instead, the hurried product is thrown out there without any regard for the reader/viewer. It insults the buyer and shows an arrogant side of the OP.

        How does it affect the quality of the product? I understand that it may affect the quality of the presentation/offer.

        Just sayin' . . . . . .

    MS Word can solve most of the spelling errors, no?
