BUSTED! PROOF That WSOs DO NOT Work!!!

54 replies
They can NOT put on a tie and go visit a client.
They do NOT know how to write.
They can NOT click keys on the keyboard.
They do NOT know how to use the telephone.
They can NOT ask for help.
They know NOTHING about putting up a website.
They can NOT read the credit card number to sign up for anything.
They do NOT know how to deal with customers.
They can NOT read.
They do NOT know how to check the mail.
They can NOT cash a check.
They do NOT know how to talk.
They can NOT sign up for Aweber or send an email.
They do NOT know how to use common sense nor do they have basic decision making skills, nor do they understand ideas such as hard work, patience, or focus.

In summary, they do NOT work so they can NOT and do NOT succeed.

Unfortunately, THAT has to come from you.

    lol I thought it was a trick too but then I read and was like "hmmmm this guy thinks like me!

    It all really does have to come from you, the WSO is just a resource to guide you along the way.

        Right on - people who say things like "this WSO doesn't work" are just blaming an outside factor instead of taking responsibility for themselves. Better to say, "I was unable to succeed with this WSO," which would lead to a closer examination of the obstacles the person encountered, which would lead to thinking of SOLUTIONS and maybe, just maybe, lead to eventual success.

          Nonsense.

          I saw a WSO working at my local cafe this morning and another one popped by the office and delivered the mail.

          WSO's are regularly working all over the place, even in job centres. How dare you tarnish all WSO's with the same brush. Good grief.

          ...and here comes another WSO to give me my daily medicine I neglected to take earlier. See, I told you.

          Some people just don't get out of this forum enough. :rolleyes:

            I love this thread, first there is confusion over whether or not WSO's are in fact being attacked.

            Then there is confusion over the definition of "beavering away" and whether beavering can be construed as racist or not (which we have identified as not)

            Awesome

              Well we know that beavering away is nothing more than hard work, which isn't always great fun.

              However, in Bill Farnhams neck of the woods it sounds postively good fun, either that or I have a filthy mind.

            I'm sorry to hurt your feelings but I did not allege you of being a racist. Actually, I did not understand the phrase "beavering away" at first, and so I misinterpreted it.

            After Googling, I found out the meaning. And so, I wrote "at first..."

              Oh don't worry Karan, I was confused about what bit was racist.

              That's the trouble with forums, you can be misinterpreted, add to that the myriad of English slang and it doesn't make it any easier.

              Just to clarify for anyone else, "beavering away" means, working very hard.

              Sorry about that.

              For those who may also trip up on the meaning of "beavering away", it means "working hard"...

              Beavers are an extremely industrious creature that often tackle what seems to be impossible and makes it look easy.

                Bill,

                Wondering what you're bevearing away at right now. New WSO?

                Just to let you know, I saw the image link for Ken Strong on your sig and took action.

                Otherwise, I wouldn't have known about his condition.

                Thanks.

    The most popular post on one of my sites is "how to rotate your computer screen" (or something like that). Which came about after the cat walked across the keyboard.

    What about WSOs for services? Those, in effect, do some work for the buyer.

    Other than that, it's a good reminder that you need to take a realistic approach to everything you buy. You have NO protection here, so you have to be even more careful when purchasing WSOs (whether they do real "work" or not).

    All the best,

    I can vouch that I've bought some great WSO's here and without them I wouldn't know what to do or where to get the info so it's not all that bad. You just have to know who is who and research the person that is offering it before buying anything. I look for how well OP has organized his offer. The time he spent on creating an offer and the graphics he uses tells alot about how well his offer is. Then I watch to see how quick after buying the offer the download link is given. If you have to chase him down or it's right there after the purchase. All in all how well OP is organized tells me alot if I'm buying or not.

    Yes there are a rehashes that pops up in WSO and I've seen a few fake stats too lately so you just need to dig deep and dig well to get the real stuff. I wish I was mod I'd zap a few people off of WF for putting out stupid stuff's but I'm not so there you go. Go with the flow.

    I guess its no different from real life's bs ... you have to know your friends well to be friends for a longtime.

    When my parents bought their first house in 1982, they had a housewarming party.

    One of the neighbours came over and brought a little nylon pouf on a card.

    The card said "Washes dishes! Cleans walls! Scrubs floors! Can do any job in your entire house!"

    My mother read this out loud, then said "All right!"

    Tossing it to the floor, she yelled "GO!" and watched expectantly.

    After a moment of silence, she looked at the neighbour and said "It doesn't work."

    We should have known this was the wrong neighbourhood as it slowly dawned on us that nobody at the party knew she was joking.

    You have a nice point there dude

    Now, it's true that WSOs do not work on their own... but you can actually work and make money following some of those WSOs ... unfortunately, not all of them are that good...

    On the other hand, I wouldn't say that it's so damn important that actual method in WSO works ... for me, the most WSOs that I bought and read gave me additional ideas for improving something other on my websites, sales process, and business in general... therefore, I think you should read, watch or use (whatever) WSOs completely and with full concentration ... it's not all about the main method described in WSO... some of them are golden nuggets for different ideas how you can improve your sales, profit margin and business in general...

    Just get up and start making a difference. Stop watching everyone pass you then read about it in a few months time. If you start to make a difference today your future will be 10x better than you think.

    Most WSOs are abysmal in quality. I Put up a poll somewhere here questioning the time spent creating a WSO. There were actually people that claim it takes them under 5 hours to create their info product. Albeit, the sample size was really small.

    That is your problem, most people don't use the WSO board as it should be used. Ninety percent of the WSOs posted on the board are cheap attempts at turning a quick buck.

    It takes quality information from several sources to create a useable WSO. How can this be had when you spend 3 hours creating a product? Most WSOs sound as if the writer made stuff up as they went along. Planning, notetaking, and research aren't a part of most WSOs I see (they should be).

    One trait of most bad WSOs that makes me laugh is the huge font size. If that's what it takes in order to be able to fill a page with content, maybe you're writing about the wrong thing.

    Everyone tries to make excuses for this. The reality is, people don't put enough effort into making their info-products good quality. All they want is to turn a quick profit.

    The trick is finding an info-product from someone that actually cares about the quality. Let me say one last thing before I narrow it down, your personality shines through your writing.

    The reason most info-product in this niche are complete garbage is what they try to teach. They try to teach the "ability" to make money. Making good money is just a side effect of good business practice. This is exactly why my products have never been focused on money. They are always focused on building core business and entrepreneurial skills that can be applied to any business situation.

    Money making cannot be taught.

    I hope that made sense, I also hope I didn't offend anyone.

    My dogs have just chased 2 WSO's out of the garden, been training them for months. When they smell BS off they go, been that much BS recently they are dizzy.
