Here goes my problem :-

Me and My partner were suppose to launch a wso today.. Unfortunetly his paypal account got frozen so he couldn't carry on with the partnership and as he was responisble for sales page and all the back end stuff.. he didnt get to finish it..

So now i have to handle the launch all by myself.. Keep in mind that i have no experience in graphics designing or copywriting. So i have no sales page,no thank you page and no knowledge of back end because he was gonna handle that. I had a great product to launch.

So now I am stuck with 2 situations :-

Situation 1.Either I can launch my wso today just by learning stuff from ebooks and wso launch code.

I will have to set up everything cause i don't have the money like 200$ for copywriter and 200$ for designer.. (bought a new house, so short on money rite now)

So i can launch it today and just make a couple of hundred bucks and use that to launch my next product in a great way.

Situation 2.I can wait a week take the risk , Borrow the money from various sources and do it with the whole pre launch phase.(BIG RISK=BIG MONEY in this case)

With this there again is the risk that this is my first wso... i might go in real bad debts.!

So please suggest me what should i do?? I need to have this launch one way or the other because this is the thrill i live for. Gotta have it man..

P.S How important is a list on your first launch? cause i ain't got any! And how can you contact good affiliates?

Thanks
Ayush

    Wait. If you don't have copy or graphics ready, you're not ready. And what makes you think you're going to make "a couple of hundred bucks" if nothing is ready? Guess what? You won't. The biggest mistake people make with WSOs is they rush into them without being ready. If you want a successful WSO do some serious planning and only then launch it. Good luck.

    I have seen many WSO's do well that are straight text for sales pages, and others that flop with amazing graphics. As long as you are offering something of value, then just articulate that in your sales copy. Quite frankly, I would wait and get it done correctly. If sales copy in not your strong point, outsource it. Real bad debt? I do not think there is anything that should go into a WSO that causes bad debt, maybe just negative profit. Especially if this is your first one.

      Even if you had your letters and download pages and everything in order, you still have to submit the wso thread for approval before they pm you back that you can launch. This can take a day in itself sometimes.

      If I were in your shoes, I would push the launch to next week.

      And I'm sure your product is fine and all - but I wouldn't just "expect" to make a couple hundred bucks back. Not everything launches out of the gate and makes hundreds of dollars. Unless you have a list already to email to.

      So i have no sales page,no thank you page and no knowledge of back end because he was gonna handle that. I had a great product to launch.
      FYI - all this can still be done (set up) without having a paypal account. I do hope you know your partner personally. You made a product and he did ????

        Like everyone is saying, just hold off until everything is in order. I know you may need the funds from it, but that will come with a successful wso. Continue to critique your product. Everything happens for a reason and now may not be the time for your product to launch. Heck who knows, next week the market maybe screaming for what you have to offer and you may be the only one who can supply it. So be patient and get things together and your wso launch will go well.

    I think you are really counting your chickens before they hatch. You need to sit down and really think about what you need to do. And if you need to borrow money to do a WSO, that's a really bad idea.

    Maybe read this...it's about my horrible experience doing my first WSO and why it failed.

    If that article sounds like you, stop, regroup and plan ahead. Do NOT think just because you think you have the next big WSO that even if you do, anyone will notice or care.

    Do you have a real sales page yet? You really don't need graphics. How about affiliates? They aren't going to come screaming at your door, at least not usually. The list goes on...

      Ha ha ha!!! I loved that story! I have been spending weeks (maybe months - I've lost track) putting my first WSO together - i am joining the War Room next week to learn more before I actually lauch it and I am so sh***ing it! It's so nice to hear some honesty about a bad experience instead of "I made $4M in 2 hours doing nothing". I am subscribing to your blog just for that and thanks for the advice you offer here.. i think the OP should listen...

    Don't quite understand.
    What's your partner losing his Paypal account got to do with him helping you with the sales page, thank you page etc?
    Your story makes no sense...

    Is there any law that says you have to launch it on a certain day? Can't you put it off until you are ready?

    put it off for a week or two until you are sure everything is in place,I pressume his account getting frozen has stoppped him from taking money for wso and thats why he has dropped out.sounds a bit strange if thats the reason as you could of taken the money instead on your paypal account.
    regards

    I say, your partner either a) was getting a raw deal or b) lost interest and used the old "frozen paypal account" as an exit.
