I'll keep it short:
After publishing a WSO and paying $40 for it to goes out without any reviews in the thread and the number of sales is really poor or I even would say no sales at all ( in spite the price of WSO is $7 and the offer is hot). People don't trust you without real reviews in the thread and that's why noone is buying anything unless few reviews are posted, and the problem is - it takes time to get reviews. Or even if you offer some reviews copies, most of the people asking for those are just freebie hunters looking to get stuff for free. That's why it's really hard at the first stage when you launch a WSO and $40 can be screwed up easily.
Create WSO pre-launch state when you have already paid for the WSO to bump it but it still doesn't go live unless you decide so (it can be a simple "go live" button that sends a WSO into the WSO section to the top - just the same way it's done automatically right now after the payment is done). And basically it's only needed with the first WSO bump. This way a person planning to launch a WSO can get some live reviews in his/her WSO thread before going live and the sales will stop to flow in immediately.
Conclusion: Everyone has a win-win here, both WF forum and WSO hosts. Another great benefit is the following: people will have much better confidence when launching their WSOs and thus doing business with warrior forum WSO section.
Please let me know if this makes sense and what do you think of it all if it does.
Note: I've submitted support ticket to WSO pro team with this suggestion but they said they are not part of the Warrior Forum and that I should get in touch with someone from the actual forum. But I haven't found the right section or support ticket type for suggestions and ideas for improvement so decided to start a thread in the main section.
So here is what I expect from your responses:
1. What you think of the actual idea
2. Whom I'd better get in touch with in order to share this suggestion (someone from Warrior Forum team obviously)
Thanks once again!
