WSO Question


I am setting up a WSO, and there seems to be a bit of a catch-22.

WSO set up procedure...


1.- Created the sale page - did it in Photoshop because I wanted visuals


2..- Uploaded the images to a website so the WF would be able to link to the images


3.- Created the WSO sales page in the test forum here at the WF, and left blank spaces where I would put the buy button's code


4.- Copied the BB code created by the test forum page, and started a new thread in the WSO section. This part of the process sends the WSO page to admin for approval.


5.- Received approval, and the page will launch the moment payment of the $40 WSO fee is made.


6.- To get the BB code for the buy button I needed to know what the URL would be once the WSO was launched. A quick Help-Desk ticket to the WF, and Thomas sent me the URL.


Here is the catch 22...


Once the payment is made to the WF, the sales page launches, but it does not yet contain the BB code for the buy button. The BB code cannot be added until the WSO launches, because there is not any access to that sales page until it launches.

The question is...


Do you just scramble like crazy to open the newly launched WSO, and do a quick edit to add the BB buy button code?


The button cannot be created until the URL is known, and the WSO has to be submitted to the WF admin first (before getting the BB buy button code) in order to get the URL from the help desk.


Life used to be soooo simple when we used pencil and paper, and took the bus.

  • People will complain for a few minutes till you put the button but then you add the button and that's that

    Hi Don,

    It only takes 1 or 2 minutes to insert the code. You know exactly when it will go live, so just consider it part of the process.

    In other words, as soon as you make the WSO go live, tell yourself that the next step is to insert the BB Code.

    Chances are that very few people will see it in that timeframe.

    However, if you think it will be an issue, you could make the first response in your WSO thread explaining that you re in the process of updating the code. Then, once the code is updated, edit the post saying it is reserved for FAQs.

    All the best,
    Michael

    As soon as the WSO goes live grab the second post as a FAQ section and write in there something along the lines of ....


    The "BUY NOW" button may take a few minutes to become active once this thread goes live.
    Thank You For Your Patience


    That's usually stops most (but not all of) the monotonous "where's the buy button" droning

    If you are really concerned, use a Paypal button for payment at first, then swap it out later.

    Just curious. What payment processor are you using that requires you to know the URL of the thread before adding the buy button code?

      Yeah actually that just crossed my mind.

      I'm sure I put my payment buttons in before I submit the thread & then just go into Warrior+ and activate them once it goes live :confused:

    I just wanted to be sure I had this right and had not missed something along the line, because it seemed like a crazy way to go.

    It's not the payment processor, it's the JVzoo setup. Payment will be PayPal.

    Thanks all. I shouldn't be a problem to quickly drop in the code. I put a couple of blank Photoshop slices into the page. I just select each image slice, hit delete, and drop in the code.

    Thanks Michael and Michelle. I'll grab that post under the sales page first.

  • I have seen a lot of people complaining for 5-10 minutes on a WSO till the button goes "Live" but I believe anyone can live with that.

    A simple solution is to write next to where the button will be placed something like: "Please be patient until the Buy Now button is added. It will only take a few minutes.". You can also colour it and make it bold so that everyone sees it and doesnt complain.
