Get the Email About Big WF Changes?

Everyone get the email about big changes coming to the WF?

"Make sure you put Monday 21st July
EDT in your calendar and lock it in as
you don't want to miss what we have
in store for you and Warrior Forum.
This will blow you out of the water
and will be the biggest thing to ever
happen to the forum. "

Anyone know what changes these could be? Also why send out a teaser email like this? I don't have much of a problem with it, I just don't know what it accomplishes versus just telling us.

    I read that...7 Days later... We have sold all of your information to a bunch of companies! Prepare to get spammed!

    That would suck and is a negative outlook : P.

    I am excited to see what they are going to do whether it is awesome or a train wreck.

      Never will I understand why good marketing offends some people who fly tjeir flag..... as a marketer.

      I love it!

      I study it and save it in my swipe. That's why my swipe is huge. I'm a marketer after all.

    My guess would be some sort of payment/affiliate platform. It would make a lot of sense considering the two most recent changes in WSO policy (no longer have to be a War Room member and being allowed to link to your affiliate sign-up page).

      That would be a great addition i think if that was true.

      I understand the tactics they use by keeping it secret and sending a pointless mail to grow anticipation, but i do'nt think anybody likes to waste their time, so at least they could have given some pointers.

      Still i agree that this will prbably the change that is coming up when you think about it.

    I think it may have something to do WSO's....

    It's so obvious what this is all about... the mergence of WF with Freelancer in which a WSO which now be a FSO and the offer will be posted on Freelancer - further linking the two sites together. Warriors will have more access to sell their services on Freelancer... with the promise of a bigger audience.

    This is about making money for them.... hope this makes money for us too.

    btw..I miss the old emoticons the new ones are strange

    From the email/thread:

    "This will blow you out of the water and will be the biggest thing to ever happen to the forum."


    Anyone have any guesses on what it could be? An affiliate program would be fantastic, but not sure if I would qualify that as being "blown out of the water."


    Other ideas?

      This email definitely had me intrigued. Hopefully the changes will be truly helpful to the community at large. I also hope that they won't somehow result in a lot of us paying out more money to the forum!

      I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    So, the mail worked then... it prompted the OP to
    start this thread and begin a conversation...

    Questions are being asked, speculation has begun
    and the necessary anticipation has been seeded...

    Jeff Walker will be pleased to see his launch strategy
    being put to use. ;-)

      Hardly. I read the email and thought the WF might do well to read Walker's book.

      I seem to have missed the valuable content being provided to rev-up anticipation. Or the mental triggers. All it had was an announcement about something big for the forum. No specific benefit for any user. Does this mean every time Wal-Mart announces ahead of time it will have a holiday special it is using Jeff Walker's launch strategy? Or Apple announces it will be releasing a new iphone version?

      It's risky using words (cliches) like "Blow You Out of The Water" and "The Biggest Thing to Ever Happen at the Warrior Forum" to a bunch of crusty marketers.

      I just hope it is ... for their sakes.

      If not, can you say, "Future Promotion Blindness?"

    What I want to know is what time is this, "Make sure you put Monday 21st July
    EDT in your calendar............"?

    EDT usually stands for a TIME as in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), not a date. Is there a special time we should be here for the BIG NEWS!

    I got the email.

    Here's the problem...

    If what they come through with doesn't meet the anticipation they've generated, it's gonna backfire on them.

    My thinking is...

    If they REALLY are giving us what we've been asking for, drop a bigger hint.

    The email was too abstract... mysterious. Not in a good way.

    Someone else on another thread mentioned the possibility of a mobile application for WF. While that would be convenient and I'd love it, don't think it matches the hype put into this.

    Reminds me of when I was an advertiser in one of Martha Stewart's magazines over a decade ago and she sends out this announcement proclaiming great news... and the great news was that the publication was going from 2x a year to 4x a year.

    Couldn't wrap my brain as to the audacity of that statement in that there's no increase in circulation but now advertisers had a smaller shelf life per edition at twice the annual expenditure to stay out there. Hey but she threw us a party at the Four Seasons.

    This is before her prison sentence.
