Do you need more than 30 posts to post a WSO?

The title says it all. I want to post a WSO soon, but i dont know if i should get my post count up first. Maybe i would be more respected if i was around the forum more often before i put up a WSO. What do you think. Would you buy from someone with little post count??

    Yes, you need 30 posts before you can post a WSO.

    I would wait a while and prove to people here that you are an expert in the area of products that you plan to sell though. I don't think many people have done all that well trying to sell in the WSO forum with low post counts.

      Yes, you need to establish yourself here before you start selling stuff.

    Mogly,

    If I may...

    First (and this is a personal preference, which many Warriors also share, I believe), you might want to change your username to something more recognizable as a person BEFORE you increase your post count. Not many people would want to buy from someone whose only name closely resembles the hero from "The Jungle Book"

    Second, getting your post count up is not merely a matter of quantity. It's more a matter of quality. Show that you know what you're doing and what you're talking about and contribute value in your posts and people will know that you're someone to "follow" (as in Twitter parlance). Then again, if what you post is just "copied material" from other stuff you've read (versus what you've experienced and done yourself), people here can smell it a mile away.

    Third, when and if you do post a WSO, do not sneakily refer to it in every other subsequent post (Not saying you will, just a friendly suggestion. Many others have, which only got their posts deleted). You may however have a sig linking to that WSO (Again, without sneakily referring to the sig in your posts)

    Fourth, don't try to do a "pre-WSO promo" here -- in any form. People here can smell it and will just feel that you're setting them up for the "sucker punch". Such pre-WSO posts usually also get deleted.

    Fifth, if all else fails, get on with life...nothing that happens here (or anywhere else) is worth getting your blood pressure through the roof for

    All the best,

    Kenneth

      I personally would not buy from you because I do not

      know who you are. 30 post count is being very generous

      as it used to be alot more. You need to quit whining and start

      providing some benefit here. Then people will get to know

      you and trust you alot more.

        It would also help your credibility if you actually read the sticky in the WSO section that says "WSO Rules-Please Read". Right there in black and red...in extra big font it's clear...You need 30 posts. Looks like you posted this to get you closer to 30.

        Robert, from one Texas boy to another, I don't think that the OP was whining. He just simply asked some questions about how things are run around here. I think he wants to do the right thing and was just asking for a little friendly advice.

          There are more requirements than just the post count of 30 - there's no substitute for reading the "stickies" (the rules) in the WSO section.

          Come on, Jim, with all due respect - the guy just joined and ALREADY is asking when he can post a WSO? Or in other words, asking "Hey, when can I make some money off of y'all (New Englander trying to bond with a Texan )

          I know that one of the age old maxims of copywriting is to answer the prospect's question of "what's in it for me?" I don't think it's a great idea to come into this forum and immediately ask "what's in it for me," though.

    Well, he DID ask respectfully, but with only five posts, I would wonder why a newbie was worried about posting a WSO so early in the game. Myself, I would be more inclined to buy from a user who had established him/herself first before even asking about posting a WSO. Just my opinion.

      get what you mean angela..but being new to a forum doesnt mean newbie by any means.and alot of times post count doesnt really mean much..im from the dating niche where i made my 1st mill last year as a dating coach.and in the dating industry,forums are filled with people who post everyday giving advice on dating but cant get a date on friday night(we call em keyboard jockies)..

      i get the building your credibility in a forum like warrior before posting a wso though,not just the newbie part

          Just relax, hang out a bit, and get to know the people on the forum. Some are nice... while others are as prickly as porcupines.You could make 1000 posts in 30 days if you wanted to... but there is also the age factor to consider...

          Would you buy from someone who just joined the forum? If you are looking for a way to get your product in front of like minded people like there are here on the WF, then I suggest you build a list.

          You have to build a reputation to gain credibility. And if you got ants in your pants and just can't possibly wait... then post a classified ad instead.

          By the way... here is a funny commercial that closely relates to your comment Kenneth. The last line in this commercial had me laughing.

    I agree with the "real name" aspect too. When you call someone on the phone to ask a question they usually say something like "Hello this is Denise Smith, may I help you?"

    You rarely hear someone sway, "Hi this is MoneyManWhizKid, may I help you?"

    I think getting more involved in the forum here more often would help you greatly... People buy from people they know and trust. I mean anyone can create an account on here that's why they have it set to at least 30 before you can post one. If you add value to the forum people will trust you and buy your products when you offer a WSO.

      I don't think your question can be answered any better than Kenneth
      answered it (thanks Kenneth for a great reply) but I am going to add my
      2 cents here based on observations I've made in the 2 years I've been here.

      The Warrior Forum is a very protective group of people. We've had several
      people come to this forum for the sole purpose of ripping off the members.
      The halls are littered with the bodies of those who have been thrown out
      of here because of this very thing.

      They are also littered with the victims as well.

      That is why when somebody just comes here (new to the forum) and starts
      asking about WSOs, people get very suspicious. I can understand that.

      I didn't post my first WSO until I was here for 4 months and had well
      over 1,000 posts.

      What that does, when you wait, is that is builds credibility in the eyes of
      the others at the forum. You give yourself time to become part of the
      "family".

      Ultimately, somebody posting a WSO with 30 posts or for that matter,
      somebody who has only been here a short time, is not going to have
      anywhere near the success as somebody who has been here a while and
      has contributed to the forum.

      And by contributing, I'm talking about adding to the conversations with
      more than just "Nice post, thanks." Add some value. Share some of what
      you know.

      Too many marketers suffer from the "scarcity" mindset that if they share
      too much info, they won't make sales. I am speaking from experience when
      I say that this is totally untrue. The more you share, the more you will
      sell.

      Anyway, this is just my personal opinion on this subject. Take it for what
      it's worth to you.

    It need 30 posts or more to post a WSO but I suggest you to have 100 or more post before posting a WSO because if people trust you your sales would be more.

    First off, I would like to apologize if I offended anyone by asking that simple question. I did not mean it to get my post count up ( That was my mistake not seeing the rule in the sticky), and i definitely did not mean to use this post to get awareness to a WSO.

    Basically, it was a real question, and i got real answers, so thank you for that.

    And, what i was going to put up as a potential WSO, i think I'm just going to hold onto it, get some more respect around here, then give it away for free. I think its the least I can do after all that i have benefited from this forum. This is where i started learning everything. I just never became a memeber up untill recently. It will be a step-by-step guide to get your first $1k online, or how i did it anyways.

    Thanks for all the feed back, and once again I am very sorry if i have upset you!

    Now, if I may ask another question. Is there an article submitter out there that has the following credentials.
    - is free
    - uses macros or the { | }
    - can submit to multiple directories with one click of a button

    I think that's it. Does anyone know of one? thanks!

    If I rephrase your question:
    Do you need 30 valuable/quality post/thread/contribution that impact on members before you run a WSO.

    And my answer is yes...

    Not ontributions such as .."good post" on a thread. This is not it.
    You must be seen as contributing as an expert in your own specialise niche or giving general internet marketing advise with rich content just as something you can sell...

      Just wondering something ...

      ...What if "Mogly" is his real name ?

      First (and this is a personal preference, which many Warriors also share, I believe), you might want to change your username to something more recognizable as a person BEFORE you increase your post count. Not many people would want to buy from someone whose only name closely resembles the hero from "The Jungle Book"
      Not everyone lives in the US

      Anyway - it turned out to be a very interesting thread.
      So thankyou Mogly

    I am new to the Warriors Forum. I just found it the other day through a member of this forum.

    I can honestly say that most people have something of benefit to say here. I would use your real name as it shows you have nothing to hide (I used mine for that reason). As of yet, I have not promoted anyone's product from this forum but I would want to know their real name and expertise.

    My personal plan of using this forum is to learn as much as I can before asking for affiliates etc. which I won't do for months.
