What's the best way to get good reviewers pre WSO?

11 replies
I'm working on a product right now. I'll be launching my first WSO. What's the best way to get some especially influential people to review it honestly?

Thanks,

    You can offer review copies but there's no guarantee that 'especially influnential people' will take you up on that offer.

    You could go to warriors for higher section. Ask a couple of people to honstly review a product.

    I don't really see the point though. If you have a good product then people will leave good reviews anyway.

    You could offer first ten copies at like $.99 in exchange for reviews.

    Go to the Members Looking To Hire You section of the forum and post what you want. Once you click to post you'll get a message that your ad will go live pending admin approval. It's $5. You'll see a bunch of people there who have posted for reviews. You can get an idea of what to post from them.

    You might consider requiring a minimum post count of 200 - 300 as this seems to bring in people who might actually review your offer and write a review. Even then, you can expect about half the people who accept review copies to get back to you.

    One other thing, make sure you brand your product REVIEW COPY on the title page and on several other, if not all pages. Good luck.

      Let the reviews flow in naturally....

      Trying to bribe customers to leave positive reviews is a good way to get your WSO shut down(against WSO rules)...so paying for them probably is NOT a good idea either.

        I agree that unsolicited reviews are far better but launching a WSO with none at all is the kiss of death. Another thing some people do is to offer a few copies upon launching and they collect the reviews in the first couple of hours.

    pm the top warriors and see if they will give you a review of the wso for your sales letter,or give away 5 copies in the war room and ask for reviews.

      You're encouraging this guy to Spam the forum. Unless someone has some sort of a relationship with anyone here private messaging people is considered Spam and can earn you a vacation.

    Hi Lee,

    That's slightly off topic, but sometimes we don't reminded enough so here goes:

    To make sure you get good reviews, make sure you have an awesome product.

    Because in the end, people will pay you in proportion to the value you add to their lives.

    Hope that wasn't unwelcomed.

    Best,

    Carl

    Do you have a list? If so, send out a double-duty e-mail that announces your new upcoming product, and offers free review copies to the first 10 people who e-mail you back.

    If you don't have a list, you're kinda out of luck. To launch an uber-successful WSO nowadays, a seed like is pretty much a necessity. I'd recommend you write up a quick 5 page WSO and offer it for free to get a small list started first.

    You can launch a free WSO and post it in the War Room. Use the feedback (you'll get these naturally) from your free WSO as your initial reviews when you launch your thread.

    A free WSO is also good because it presells your regular WSO.
