Back here after a few years... WSO's still worth it?

Are WSO's still as profitable as the old days?

I remember putting my first ever product on there and doing $10k profit in a few days. Following that it was a very easy source to bank 5 figures commissions on a rainy day.

What's it like now? I've noticed the WSO section looks completely different (not great at all tbh I preferred the older style) and a lot of threads are years old but still going.

So what's it like these days?

    Products of value are profitable.

    The financial figures are just a dividend of that, so it's important to place focus on what you're giving.

    If a product is doing well in sales, then offering it for a lower, special offer price here might be beneficial.

    The problem was, people focused on 'making WSO's' with money as the first thing on their mind, rather than actual independent concrete products.

    If people focus on 'making a WSO' now, there's less / no opportunity since low quality products are being weeded out.

    For others, there's potential.

    If U are here to provide value, WSO'S are still profitable.
    Gone are the days when people were rewriting PLR'S in the garb of info based products and trying to fool the buyers.

    I'm thinking about launching a WSO on cloud hosting where I show buyers how to get super fast hosting. And show basic linux commands, get a free SSL, and other goodies. I'll use the fitness niche as an example.

    Question

    1. What is the purpose of a WSO compared to linking out to a sales page?

    Thank you!

      Read the WSO rules. I believe it has to be unique as an offer to WF members. Not something you are offering to the general public. Not sure if just a special price for WF menbers is all you need, but all the info is there for you to read.

    The industry has actually changed for the better. Fewer scams, fewer omg-get-rich-quick-lambo-style products. Still a horrible place

    I would say in general it's probably not as profitable as years ago but there is still more than enough money to be had with a good product.

    I thought about launching a WSO but the thing is just a mess of contradictions. The system needs to be cleaned up.

      You should see the top Stickey here in the main forum by Admin. They are in the process of doing this right now! Also visit the Suggestion and Help sections and see the recent activity this week. So you can see the process has started and causing issues. Hopefully if this works out the Marketplace will be the very worthwhile.

    Personally I don't think the plummeting traffic level justifies it. You'll have to bump multiple times and the low money tolerance exhibited here pre-2015 (say) is even lower now because a new demographic poured in.

    My advice is if you can stomach the undercutting of your value positioning by having a $1 - $20 product, then make sure you have an upsell--laddering, ascension--because this is a feeder buyer source at best. I'm here just to rev my writing engine and share some advice, not to sell.

    I hope the current efforts have an effect, but IMO it's an uphill struggle because of the positioning and traffic level of the forum.

    Yesterday I spoke with a marketer who didn't know what WF was. She'd been around at least a few years. There was a time when that would have been astonishing, not just a little surprising.
