How do WSO Owners Make Money?

23 replies
Is it from doing what they say they do in their WSO or CB product? Or is it from launching products?

To sell a WSO or CB product many owners need weeks or months of prep work, prelaunch, JV recruitment, you need to hire designers, video designers and the list goes on and on! Plus you need to manage all of the backend like email follow ups, refunds JV relationships...

WSO Owners make money online by launching products...if you believe otherwise...well you can comment below...

There is NO TIME to do anything else when you make good WSO products and sell them properly....

My point is you should NOT just buy WSO's based on "the guru" behind it because although they might say they "practice what they preach" most of them are just really good product launchers!

Many of them are just selling methods that are common knowledge for many intermediate and expert marketers...but they are really good at making you think they have the next best thing...basically they build hype!

This is not to discourage anyone from buying WSO's, especially newbies who can get some great information in there, and we can all find good services in there too...just don't be fooled into thinking the "big names" know what they are talking about all the time...

Some of the best methods come from newbies themselves who challenge the way things are "supposed to be" done...

    Typically both. Sometimes one, sometimes the other. You weren't hoping for a sweeping generalization here, were you :rolleyes:?

    Yeah, because none of that can be delegated to employees or freelancers. The owner has to do everything. Well, confirmed my suspicion at least. It's another one of those threads about WSO's.

    I remember being naive, once.

    But you've mentioned multiple times in this post that we are talking about people who launch good products. So, you're saying we should avoid good products?

    Seems legit.

    Again, good sellers with good products don't tend to play the hype game. You may just have a bit of a warped idea as to what good products are. Or are you mixing in good sellers with the bad?

    At least you are partially correct here.

    It's also where the buy this WSO that teaches you how to sell WSOs about making WSOs crowd comes from. Great suggestion :rolleyes:.

    That's a false statement.

    The first WSO I launched, which has now sold thousands of copies, was created because people in the mobile marketing section kept asking me for help and I did not have the time to answer all the private messages and requests for help I was receiving.

    I thought the better thing to do was document exactly what I had been doing and sell it as a course. This allowed me to help a lot more people with a lot less effort on my part. It also meant I was only dealing with people who were serious about the business.

    The course literally took me about 3 days to put together because it was actual stuff I was doing in my business. I was simply documenting it and showing others how to do it. Courses don't take long to create when you actually know what you are talking about. It's those who make up courses that have the hard time putting them together.

    The membership site and payment setup took about a day so the product all up took me no longer than 5 days to put together and release. 5 days work to sell thousands of copies over the next year?

    A poor investment of time? I don't think so...

    Majority of the products I release never take more than a few days of my actual time to complete.

    Income surely doesn't only come from only one source (WSO), many marketers use their own products daily because it's that good. On the other hand, yes there's a lot of BS out there (and on WF unfortunately) and you need to look out for that, use your own judgement. But why not support a specific (name) marketer if you know he/she over-delivers time and time again and puts out top-notch stuff?

    Not everyone sells "methods" as a product. A lot of people sell software and services.

    I don't just sell a method. I sell my SERVICES and I make money this way. When I create a product for a client, I have to do the proper research on whatever topic they need it written on. So even though I don't actually put the topic that I'm writing into action, it's solid information. Just because the product owner doesn't do what they write about doesn't mean that it's not good, solid information.

    There is a lot of money in selling WSO's but there are techniques in doing it correctly.

    If you just wing it you may not even make your investment back.

    It's not that hard to put together a good WSO. The start is the hardest part, as with anything you do in IM.

    When you are launching for the first time, it might be difficult for you get good sales, because you are not yet established as an authority, you don't have JV relationships established, you don't have a list, etc.

    It gets easier, however, as time goes by.

    So later down the road you don't need to spend a lot of time putting together the actual WSO.

    As Will pointed out above me, it's a lot easier and faster to create a WSO that consists in a method you truly know and something you've really done.

    On the other hand, if you are trying to make up a method or a strategy without even knowing if it's working just in order to create your WSO, you might have a tough time putting it all together.

    The bottom line is this; the more experienced and skilled you get, the faster and easier it becomes for you to create a WSO of great value and market it effectively.

    Many WSO sellers don't make any money from the WSO itself, they make it from the list they generate, they sell to them on the back end and that's where the money is.

    As for your 'NO TIME' statement, any smart internet marketing is good at outsourcing. Every single one of those 'Time Consuming' jobs you mentioned can and is outsourced in many cases.

    I'm afraid I have to disagree with almost every point you mentioned. Sorry dude!

    They make money on the backend and by recruiting other affiliates here on the Warrior Forum. Then they do a launch with Clickbank and get really good profits.

    Most WSO owners (not all) are making money from selling WSOs and not from doing what the WSO is telling.... Lots of WSO's are just the products of exaggerated imagination.. Meaning, not proven and not tested.

      This. If you really had a secret to make $10,000 per month, would you sell it for $6.95?:confused: I thought so:rolleyes:

        Because 6.95 X 5000 buyers = 34750 bucks, not counting the list generated and various, more expensive upsells and backends. (Which could easily equal several hundred thousand dollars more.)

        Taking in the various upsells and email list - one could easily go from 10k a month with their system and add 20k+ a month to it. Equaling 30,000 or more.

        Make cents?

        $6.95 isn't 6.95.

    With the right tools and preparation, WSO launch is not that hard. I have done my free WSO myself in a span of 2 weeks. A paid WSO may take another 2 weeks. Experience brings Expertise!

    Oh Freddy...

    ...you sound like me at one point and time when
    I believed the true players were only doers...not
    teachers.

    Turns out...

    ...I've done very well...

    ...largely because of the time, effort and energy
    these DOERS put into becoming teachers to help
    someone like ME who would NOT know...otherwise.

    With time...you, too...will understand the power
    of the words "Thank You".

    ...Thank You...for teaching me something I could
    NEVER learn from any college.

    ...Thank You...for showing me something I didn't
    know existed until YOU brought it to my attention.

    ...Thank You...for doing the hardwork of carving
    the path so it's easier for someone like ME to nav
    -vigate through.

    If there's one thing you can take away...it's this...

    how many people do YOU know...anywhere...who
    know a *fraction* of what you DO know?

    Can you name one person?

    Two?

    Be grateful you know how to read and comprehend
    what you DO know about business.

    You know...

    most of my friends don't know how to read...there
    -fore...realistically...they would have to start from
    square one BEFORE they could GET the knowledge
    to implement what we are blessed to have in this
    forum.

    ...rehashed...old...regurgitated material...or not.

    Are there people out to make a quick buck making
    stuff up?

    Sure.

    ...but are you not smart enough to KNOW what you
    want and learn from your mistakes?

    It's part of the process and *I* went through it, too.

    I bitched...complained...and rationalized why people
    would bother helping someone like me...

    and what a funny way to be grateful to those who
    ARE genuinly working hard to show me what they
    know...

    ...taking time out their main business to give back to
    somone...like ourselves...who...quite frankly...don't
    NEED to be given ANYTHING more.

    We are the last group of people who need strategies
    or shortcuts to anything...we have this forum...and,
    we have our brains...most of us can read...write.....
    ya know...basic stuff we take for granted?

    Something to think about...my friend...

    ...and Good Luck...well...maybe not...if you have an
    internet connection...you already got it.

    I don't think so, most internet marketers know how to find graphics. they know how to pretty much write basic sales copy and they know html.

    I know some wso owners who post weekly and sometimes more than that, about the only thing really is the writing on the wso. And most can do that but I can not.

    Now remember though if you use a jv broker that's a percentage and affiliates are going to be at least fifty percent. But still some of these wso owners do nothing but market so they have time.

  • I'm not a WSO owner (yet) but I've been in the info business for a few years. The reason people (like myself) launch these products is because we DO the things that we say we do, and we find a ton of success in those businesses. We write down everything we did to get there, and launch it as an info product or whatever else someone would need to achieve the same level of success or greater.

    YES we do scale it up
    YES we also make money from the products we sell
    NO we don't find a great method to make money and say to ourselves "you know what, I make PLENTY of money, why should I spend a few days of my time to make even MORE telling people how to do it?"

    Everyone seems to have the question "If they make sooo much money doing it, they wouldn't sell a book on how to do the same thing." Well, cold hard truth is, they'll have a GREAT time working for someone else until they're 70 and living the rest of their lives on their pension and 401k with social security benefits.

    TMI WARNING

    My father used to think the SAME way, until I pulled into his driveway with the truck of his dreams on his birthday when I was "just a wee lad" at 18 years of age.
