[NEW] Verified Warrior Members

by Marcus W K Wong Administrator 25 replies
Hey Warriors!

One of the biggest growing pains we've faced as a growing community of Internet Marketers is building a marketplace that's effective for both buyers and sellers (new and old) looking to make money online.

We've considered every possible element needed to be improved. From listing to design upgrades, the reality is that our marketplace is here to aid in facilitating traffic for sellers, and great offers for sellers.. and that's where it's stopped.

Today, we're taking things one level deeper. We're helping to bridge the digital divide that comes with online sales, and that comes down to one thing only -- trust.

We have amazing sellers in the marketplace and on the forum. Sellers who are passionate about helping people make money online, learn what they need to learn, practice what they preach, and establish long time commitments to helping each and every one of their valued customers.

These are the sellers that buyers want to have complete confidence in. That's why we've created the Verified Warrior Forum Member label specifically for WSO sellers. Through our verification process lead by 3 of our in-house specialists, we will begin verifying Sellers for honest trade and ethical internet marketing practices, starting this week. You'll notice the following badge applied to WSO's by sellers we trust:




To kick us off, we're pleased to announce our first 10 Verified Warrior Members:

James Brown
CB Elite (Murray Hughes)
Jeff Baxter
Jack Duncan
Sean Lowery
Chris Dolan
David McAlorum
Simeon Tuitt
shawnlebrun (Shawn Lebrun)
Ryan Shaw

Congratulations to the first Verified Warrior Members, there's more to come and we'll update you as we continue verifying.

Cheers!

    What are the criteria for getting a badge?

    What if you'd like to post your 1st WSO, will not having a badge kill your sales because it's your first time and you haven't earned one yet?

    Thanks!

      I'm wondering the same thing. Shouldn't the criteria and the verification process be explained somewhere so that the badge has some meaning?

      Also, if you are going to distinguish between "verified" Warriors and those who aren't verified, surely there must be some kind of request mechanism in place for Warriors who want to become verified. So where does someone sign up?

      Additionally, shouldn't this verification extend to others that sell on the Warrior Forum? What about Warriors that sell through banner ads, classified ads or those that have offers in their sig files? If this program truly is about trust for the buyer, why should it be limited to WSOs?

      I applaud your effort in doing this, but caution that the same treatment should be afforded all WF sellers for it to be fair and equally accessible by all members.

      Just my initial thoughts,

      Steve

    This is one of the best things to happen in here in a long time...names of people who really do make a difference. Can mods be added to the list or is it just accepted that they give as much as they can?

    Hey Enfusia! We will be curating all new WSO's as they come through as well prior to posting, verifying members - if we can't verify, no badge.

    Hey Laurence, new WSO's being posted are critical for us to verify, we generally have a manageable queue of them, and we are endeavouring to get through all WSO sellers. If you've recently bumped, I'd proooobably say that you'll be coming up soon to be verified by one of our moderators. It's just a matter of time.

    Hi David, it's meant to appear on your WSO as we edit the post and manually add it in --- I'll have someone from our verification team message you.

    Hi Steve, great recommendation on implementing a request form.

    We're currently not going to support one just yet - the reason for this is we're focused on the process in place at the moment which is verifying new WSO's and their respective sellers as they are approved (reason being this is easy and we can vet them immediately), secondly, we're going through the list of ALL WSO Sellers, and everyone will be treated equally on this.

    As I said in the post, we have no intentions of mapping out our verification process, reason being is that we don't want anyone to trick our processes and 100% we are certainly going to continue improving it.

    I'll setup a request google form by the end of the month with our team, at the moment though - it would reveal a bit too much if we start asking questions on the form itself. I'll get back to you

    As a member and someone who is actually on the verified list itself, this makes me feel good. Thanks for the acknowledgement and also encouragement to those on this forum who are just trying to do the right thing.

    God bless you guys.

    Hey Gabriel,
    I thank you for the reply and addressing my question.

    I have to say that you and other admins and moderators are generally much faster to respond to questions, even if the question can't be answered as well as we are asked.
    A huge thumbs up and thanks a lot. I certainly appreciate the positive changes.

    Kinda bias here but that's an awesome step towards restoring trust in the marketplace.

    Now there's accountability on here, something the forum hasn't had before. Way to go!

    Sounds like a great idea. Any possibilities of integrating a review system? That would certainly provide more transparency.

    I find as well however that the general quality of WF member posts have degraded significantly. You get plentiful post regurgitating the same content already mentioned just for the post count or link post. (inside the post response.)

    One of our biggest challenges to solve is this:

    - validating sellers who don't produce their own content

    You're probably wondering why it's challenge, and for the most part it all comes down to the validity of the individual, it's 1000000x easier for us to verify that they're a true identity when they have their own content, that's why it's critical to us to see it on the Warrior Forum - and why members who have contributed to the forum outside of just the marketplace currently claim a larger portion of being "verified" at this stage.

    The more transparent they make it for us, the easier it is for us to green light them as a verified member (plus, solves some basics for members shopping on the marketplace to do research on the validity of seller).

    We currently have a review system in place for members using Warrior Payments. They're all payment verified reviews as well so that makes it super simple. Paulo, our Head of Engineering is working super hard on getting something out soon to alleviate this for sellers - so keep an open eye out over the next month. Paulo will do the announcement

    For members that we've been able to verify so far - congrats!!!!
