Get 3 WSO bumps for the price of 1?

14 replies
I have been monitoring activity of the WSO room to see the best time to post.

The best time of day varies depending on what is going on and can be volatile because it's a people business and people aren't 100% predictable.

However I observed that off peak times there are about 1600 viewers and a bump or 2 per hour.

At peak times it is 3200 viewers and 12-15 bumps per hour.

So although you have twice the viewers, you have 6-7 times the competition.

So bumping at off peak times could land you 3 times the exposure. (Because your post is being seen for 6 times as long, but to half as many people.)

So there you go - the value of 3 WSO's for the price of 1. Think about it . We do keyword research for SEO, so why not optimise the way you do your WSO? One thing you can absolutely control is when to post, because as soon as you pay, you appear.

I tested this out in practice and got more sales by timing the WSO correctly than I usually do by following the rules of thumb I have read on various posts.

    It's crazy in there...that's for sure.

    Have to go about running WSO's a whole lot differently these days.

    Also not sure about the rules...

    For example, I could swear that there is someone running two separate WSO's for the same offer....I could be wrong...I didn't investigate it or anything...but it sure seemed that way.

    Wonder if a TIMED bump system has ever been thought of...?

      Many of those recorded as "viewers" of the WSO section are people who have jumped to a specific thread there, often by clicking a link in a signature-file elsewhere in the forum. They're not all people "browsing the WSO forum looking for something to buy".

      Call me a skepchick, but for this reason, I strongly suspect it may not be accurate at all to work out the "competition" in quite the way presented above, if you'll excuse the observation.

      Nice cat.

        Or they are people like me who have a Tab or window open on the WSO Forum in the background as they do work...

        I'm hardly browsing either.

        Alexa ... I was expecting you for some reason...

        No it's not perfect. It's indicative kind of like keyword research, surveys, clickbank gravity, alexa rank etc. But it's still useful.

        Would you agree that in general the amount of actual viewers of the WSO section is proportional to the reported number? So it might be for example overstating the viewers by 116%, because the 116% extra is just people who aren't serious about buying they just have a window open by accident, or whatever.

        If so I will let you verify the simultaneous equations yourself - it makes no difference to the outcome of when the best time to post is.

        Or an analogy is measuring footfall in a shop, where some people might enter the shop to say hello to a friend already in there or take cover from the rain, but hey they still measure it.

          Good question, Martin. Yes, it may be so. In which case the theory may well be indicative. I always think that "bumping time" is less relevant than people imagine, but your theory suggests that it may not be. Still thinking about this. Interesting, I don't deny.

            True -

            It depends what kind of WSO you have. If you are a big-hitter then maybe it doesn't matter you post. But most WSO producers probably sell just a few copies (like me) and it makes a huge difference when you have to support the $40 fee each time. E.g. going from $200 to $400 per bump is a big difference.

            The big-hitters would rely more on their lists, affiliates and the $100 banners etc. They may not care so much about timing which might only boost their sales a little bit.

            So perhaps this is a good technique for those quite new to creating WSOs like myself who have not yet got the big list side of things sorted.

    Just to let you know, your app doesn't work. It requires activation and "I want to activate" leads to a 404.

        It requires an email to activate so I don't think you should have a link for it in the main forum. List building type stuff belongs in the WSO forum or in your sig not as part of a post IMO.

        As to what you posted, it makes sense and something worth checking. I've noticed that bumping when there are the most viewers doesn't always pay off because everyone else thinks the same thing so you're knocked off page 1 fast.
