It seems WSOs used to be much easier. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.
WSOs have always been competitive - I have only done a couple with varying degrees of success (mea cupla on some of this, of course).
I know your copy and headline have to be great to stand out, but recently - wow. It is busy in there.
The thing is - I live in Ireland and launched a WSO thread at possibly the wrong time. It tumbled off page 1 in what seemed only 8-10 hours. Most of which was night time in the USA where the biggest numbers of the Warriors live. My customers were asleep!
So if you are doing a WSO it seems you really have to optimise the launch time. It seems that the offers move off page one really really quickly.
I am wondering now - is an WSO worth it for certains types of product?
I mean, real products that do not warrant the HYPE value of some other WSOs (woooo, controversy).
Now with all the competition and the extra fee, they have become as difficult (or as easy, depending how you see it!) as any other channel on the net. I think that just doing a WSO on its own is not enough, I should probably be driving traffic to it from other sources too to increase the views. This was not the way it was several years ago when the WSO thread itself sufficed.
Just my experience, wondering if anybody has any thoughts.
Like everything else, success brings its own problems.
Running a WSO may not be the easiest (or cheapest) way to market anymore for some of us.
