Friendship Feature = Good Network Building. It makes professional sense to me that if I sell a WSO and submit a "friendship request" to the buyer..
This is good networking as it pulls buyers into the network (forum interface) that the seller promotes the offer.
Matter of fact, it makes professional sense to me that the all WSO Sellers' should have the professional courtesy to initiate the friendship request.
Blog Feature. The forum's Blog Feature Compliments The WSO. Aside from the forum friendship request feature it would also be beneficial to both seller, buyer, and future prospects if the seller maintained a blog specific to the WSO. Notifications about updates to the original offer or OTOs would be in all parties best interest. Other members of the forum may explore the blog and decide to buy based on other member's comments.
