What do I create my next WSO about?

29 replies
I always ask my readers what they would like me to help them with and I got a rush of questions the past week of what would be the best topics to create a WSO about. So, I took this screen shot that pretty much tells you exactly what will make you money. I see this question every so often here as well, so hopefully this helps you too..

      The keywords on the right have almost always listed PLR as the first one but PLR offers do not sell in the amounts that other types of WSOs do. I'm not going by my own experience alone but by talking to a number of PLR providers. Just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone going "oh boy, PLR is top"... lol.

        You're totally right Tina... but, if you create 5-10 PLR products (which is easy) and launch one a week building a buyers list... you will have a nice buyers following that will continue to buy over and over again.

        You know... I buy your PLR all the time lol.

    Is selling PLR a good idea with all the PayPal account closures?

      Sell unique PLR packages. You can't sell PLR that someone else created.

      Example: I might find there be a need for videos in the "learn to play guitar" niche. I happen to play guitar. I record myself playing 5 basic chords and tuning the guitar.

      I can sell this with PLR rights fine with no threat of being closed.

        Hi petelta,

        You really caught my eye with this post! I need to ask you very seriously: was this just an off-the-cuff, non-realistic example, or would a PLR package of guitar instruction on video actually find a nice market, would you say?

        The reason I ask is that I too play guitar (for 40 years, pro level), and I have thought once or twice about a video instruction product, but until I saw this post of yours, it never occurred to me to do this and sell it as PLR. I'm not entirely convinced that doing so would be a better route than to simply sell the product to end users, but the point here is that your post opened my eyes to the idea that maybe I could release a product that I don't necessarily have to painstakingly sculpt for months to be ultra-comprehensive, and would still be valid and would sell (I would certainly show a lot more than playing five chords and tuning, but my point remains). I would very much appreciate a follow-up comment from you on this.

        thanks,
        A.C.

          You could sell it either as PLR on the WSO forum or as is on your own site. Both will make you money. There are plenty of sites out teaching others how to play guitar. They could always use more great content.

          There are lots of people searching for the "how to play guitar" niche too... just look at the exact match results:

          How about measuring interest first before going full scale with it. You could create a couple of interesting, short videos and put them up on Youtube. Promote them and see how the viewers take them.

          If the videos show any sign of success, create a site, collect leads and get feedback from those people about what they really need. Based on that, create a product and market it. Just a thought!

    Another good thing about WarriorPlus is you can always do keyword searches on past WSO's and see the stats...or get alerts when certain Warriors are running a WSO.

    What makes PLR different from any other product? And please, "all" the closures? You see a few marketers being closed down out of millions of PayPal users. If you are going to live in fear and hold back due to that fear, you'll never get anywhere in life.

    Aww, thanks! You are right, of course. That is definitely the path to take. I just have heard so many in the past think all they need to do is slap together 10 articles and post them and wheeee, in the money! LOL.

      Not all PLR is sold that way. Almost all of my PLR is non-transferable.

      And the only way to get on PayPal's bad side with PLR is to push the make money angle in the copy. That's what gets many products flagged. Instead of selling the information or product on its own merits, too many WSO creators push the make money aspect. That's what makes things like that look like Ponzi schemes.

      There are a lot of people who've had their accounts limited/frozen/closed due more to that type of copy than anything else.

        This is kinda 'thread hijacking' but I thought all this was really interesting.

        I can totally see how it's like a pyramid, although I (personally) don't see it as any different to selling stuff wholesale for others to pass on and sell as a profit.

        And even if you're not passing on the ability to pass on the private label rights, the first generation of buyers can make money selling the product and so are likely buying the product not for the product but for the money making aspect.

        That's really interesting food for thought.

    I beg to differ. There are plenty of products based around those topics that are complete flops. A good place to start but definitely not a guarantee of making money.

      I've never not made money with a product around those keywords. I think it's pretty obvious that not every product launched in these topics are going to be winners. I didn't guarantee anything... I said this is what people are buying... which is true.

        I guess I took your original post too literally...

        That kind of sounds like a guarantee to me and all I am saying is that's not the case. They are definitely a great place to start however there are a ton of products built around those keywords that have sold very few copies at all and there are tons of products built around topics not included in that list that have sold thousands and thousands of products.

        My rule of thumb... build something people actually need. Not something YOU think they need. Don't worry about lists like that so much because it's really a guarantee of nothing.

    Instead of building a WSO around what you think people want, create one around what you are good about and let the chips fall where they may, so i say.

      Yes and no. Always good to share information you are knowledgeable about but not a good way to spend time if it isn't going to sell.

      And as for letting the chips fall - better to plan and execute so you get a good result.

      I just want to share my thoughts on this. There are lots of Warriors who do product creation. Some of them outsource the ebook creation part to me. Some of my clients use these ebooks for their list building.

    Why not think about what you are good at, what you enjoy and what need there might be for others in that area (in other words the problems others are having with the topic). If you are an authority and genuinely want to help people it shows through and the right people will respond. They will also then become your followers which is the real value in creating a WSO, I believe. It's the way it worked for me....launched me into a new career, actually.
