I Bought Some of the Best WSO's Over Xmas...

4 replies
I constantly browse the WSO section for new ideas, and once in a blue moon (we had one this month), I actually get drawn in and buy one.

You can't rely on testimonials as a rule, some guys I think make it their business model to whore out reviews until they finally find something that works. Why else would they give a favorable review to almost every one?

As I said, I love the WSO forum, because at least you're getting feedback and you can read between the lines. Those guru offers always have a boringly long page of positive testimonials and no "dirty secrets".

I also learned a long time ago, even if it promises the moon and an occasional solar eclipse...if it isn't something you're already interested in you're probably going to be disappointed.

My rules of thumb...buy cheap stuff and be careful of the incrementing prices. I know it's a popular technique but I'll be dammed if I'm going to pay $27 for something somebody else got for $9 or $7 or $5 and hasn't come back and bragged on your stuff! ??

Oh Yeah...my point ... I took some of my fiverr clone "play money" and bought a few WSO's xmas eve. Everybody was in the holiday spirit and marking stuff cheap so I jumped on a few in my realm of interest.

[I forgot to mention, get all the FREE ones and sign up with a 'throwaway account" and get their valuable nugget and then watch their email sales program...excellent education]

My results (and the point of my thread started seemingly hours ago).

I got one good freeby, valuable and well worth it.

A second freeby, not so much...what I call "clutter" (and I'm getting hammered with affiliate emails with little or no content)

I bought three more, low cost stuff marked down for Xmas, and the one that was $37 initially marked to $5...was worth $5

The second $5 was ok for what it was, but didn't cover everything he promised in the advertisement...looked like a bunch of re-hashed PLR...maybe worth The $5 cause I can repurpose the content for a site of mine...

And then...I hit one that melted all my fleeting ideas into a marketing plan, using bits and pieces of all those crappy ones...imagine that!

    It is never the ideas that make a WSO worth its asking price, but rather how one person puts it together, as if they had created their report -- just for you!!

    My WSO's have two too many strikes against them to ever see you buy one: incremental pricing and more than you feel like paying.

    Oh well, maybe someone will rehash what I have done for you.

    Now you got it - that's exactly how it works with me. I only purchase those related to what I'm currently working on to either give me more insight or better yet - make the light bulb go on! That's when the creative juices are working.

    No matter what WSO or info product you buy, chances are that there's going to be some duplication of information that you already know if the subject matter is something you're interested in. It's all in how the information is synthesized and conveyed, and sometimes a small nugget or brief snippet is all it takes for you to spark something new based on what you already know - and that is where the value is derived.

    There is really no such thing as 'fresh' or 'new' information for the most part, it's more in how the information is combined and synthesized.

    Bill,

    I can't recall seeing a WSO by you or I would have been more attentive. I hope you realize that I'm not dissing everybody.
