Buying A REPORT VERSES MAKING MONEY! - For my Offline Peeps!

by John Durham 8 replies
Listen guys, I sell them, you may sell them.

I buy them, you may also buy them...But lets talk... About the difference between buying a WSO and making money.

Listen, I give WSO's away for free all the time to people who demonstrate a true desire for knowledge to make money and dont have any... a brother has to plant seeds wherever there is good ground...

However, sometimes people complain about the grammer or the quality... blah blah blah... OTHER PEOPLE LISTEN FOR THE "KNOWLEDGE" and they UTILIZE IT TO ITS FULLEST POTENTIAL.

Now, I want to tell you YOU DONT HAVE TO BUY REPORTS... I DO, BUT I DONT HAVE TO.

Business is all around you, its common sense.

I placed this post on another thread then deleted it because its worthy of its own subject.

Someone had posted a rant about the audio quality, basically a RUBBISH thread downgrading the quality of some WSO they bought.... and I didnt hear a single thing about the knowledge they gained from it.

Where is our success mentality... What are we MAKING out of all the ingredients provided to us in the universal cup boards?

Here was my response, and I want to share with you because I believe it can enrich you and is worth more than being socked away in some useless WSO bashing rubbish thread.
(They werent talking about me BTW, so this isnt personal, its just the principle Im addressing here):

Dear________

I have an idea, why not stop complaining, and stop trying to ride other peoples coat tails as if reading about their success is expected to suddenly turn you from a person who never accomplishes anything into an achiever overnight and DO WHAT I DID - WHAT ACHIEVERS DO- and have DONE on several occassions with several different business models, whenever I want to accomplish something:

- Sit down at a kitchen table and put two plus 2 together
- realize that you are a fish in an ocean of money and all you have to do is connect the dots to get some to flow to you
-Realize that while you are saying you cant make a business there are literally millions of dollars in trasnsactions going on all around you at every turn... why arent you involved in one?

One day I figured - Hey manufacturers need help selling closeouts where do I find buyers.... and I figured it out without anyones reports.

One day I thought "Im gonna call some business owners and ask if they need a website" - didnt have to buy anyones report to figure out that what I wanted was to find out if they needed a quote on a website...

Then of course I didnt have to buy a report to figure out that if they said "Yes" I was gonna go out an quote them...

Not Rocket Science... Also I could figure out on my own, that if I was gonna call people and sell websites, I would need to know ahead of time how I was gonna build them... and it didnt take much to ecstrapolate, that that means cutting a deal with a webdesigner, or learning a site building program (Right?)... It didnt take an act of God and 20 reports for me to figure that out.

Nope, i just picked up the phone and started asking people... figured it out on my own and wrote my own report. EVEN IF I HAD NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE, I could have figured out how to ask "Hey you folks need a website"? No selling whatsover, just asking till someone says yes... You can do that.

Can everyone do that - Just depends on how bad they want to. Honestly, my report has good knowledge but do you really need it to pick up a phone and ask someone if they want a quote on a website?

Honestly; NO. Reports are good to have, but you can find your way without them too.

So how is a person gonna do business if they get hung up on something like audio quality and look past the knowledge? i dont buy reports for audio quality, nor grammer, nor spelling... I buy them for knowledge.

If I wanted a literary artwork I wouldnt be shopiing at the WF, I came here to learn to make money, and sure Ill even take it in a dirty glass!

Im all about buying reports and getting new knowledge, but MAN take the knowledge and run with it and dont nit pick if you want to learn something from someone that they know and you dont.

Otherwise, if you want success you will get it, report or not... Just because a guy has a business plan doesnt mean he knows how to make a pro recording, and the proof is OVERWHELMINGLY evident, that just because a guys knows how to make a nice website or recording - A BUSINESS MAN THAT DOES NOT MAKE.

JF Straw has the crappiest looking site on the net, and I hear about bad quality all the time, and it sells more than anyones website that I know of...

I think if there is million dollar knowledge on an audio, its what the spanish call "penche'" to nit pick over a few pops or something.

Just my opinion.

I dont even know who's audios we are talking about, but I dont need to, if the knowledge is there, then run with it.

Ps. I have taken the time here to do what i hope is Inpsire someone, but it amazes me that entrprenuears actually have time to sit and write detailed rants that discourage and demean other peoples work. I dont think I have ever bought a WSO that I didnt get a few dollars MORE worth of knowledge than I paid... But then its worth really depends on what you DO with it.

This isnt the best start, if this is what you are doing with the knowledge you bought (spending an hour on the WF to write a rant about the audio quality).

"MAKE MONEY WITH THE KNOWLEDGE YOU BUY! LOOK FOR REASONS TO SUCCEED AND NOT EXCUSES TO FAIL AND MOVE ON...."

Plenty of people "DO".

    You want to write articles?

    Get ready for some serious JEDI knowledge...Shhhh...

    STICK A LINK IN YOUR SIG THAT SAYS "I WRITE ARTICLES"

    And then go make some amazing posts like Alexa, and sombody will click it and buy an article from you...

    No report necessary... Common sense.

    Want to make more than 5 cents per word... Make your articles into REPORTS and sell them over and over for 20 bucks apeice to 1000 people per year at a steady pace of 8 copies per month per article (highly reasonable)...Write 12 articles and you now have a $2k per month passive income stream because you never have to do your work again except to advertise... make them into PLR... all kinds of ways to sell them.

    Dont do your work once and get paid once... do it once and get paid PERPETUALLY.

    How...? Well, look around this is an OCEAN of business transactions we live in... HOW ARE OTHERS DOING IT?

    Theres not a sales organization in the WORLD that doesnt tell you their WHOLE SECRET in the process of selling you.

    Copy successful people.

    Just as an example... Im sure Alexa gets a TON of top dollar article writing business because every post she makes is like a great article... It isnt hard to see how or why she sells. If I could type posts like that people would click my link too, and beg me to take top dollar jobs!

    So how does she do it? By going out on the forum and BEING IT! Just like me... I dont do anything, I just BE WHAT I AM... and you know what people buy?

    They buy what I AM, what I PRESENT... What do you present?

    Can you make money if you arent presenting something?

    Well the first key is to PRESENT something - What do you Present?

    If you dont stand for something, then you fall for anything. You have to be ABOUT something.

    What are you about?

    Do you want to make $100 bucks per day with CPA? Go to a mall with your laptop and walk up to fat people and ask them if they want to fill out a two minute form for Jenny Craig... Make sense?

    Promotional models do it for a living in malls at concerts... You dont have to have an agent to do that nor a report - Just go sign up at link share and start walking up to people asking them to take a minute to fill out a form.

    You suppose you could get 9 people a day to take one minute to fill out a form on your laptop?

    Then you can make 100 bucks per day with CPA - No rocket Science. If I was broke and I didnt know SEO and I wanted to make money with CPA I would do that and probably make $300 a day from day one! - Common Sense. No report necessary.

    In closing...If you cant find someone to mimmick, then...

    Whatever it is that you want to do, MAN!!!! Follow that gut instinct... God gave it to us... Sense you way to the goal.

    Yes reports help... but really, just follow the advice of successful people and do what they did! Or figure it out!

    Im excited as I type this because I MEAN IT:

    YOU "CAN".

        VERY profound information John... thanks for spelling it out. We tend to over complicate and over think this 'making money online' while mostly the answers are much simpler than we realise.

    Well, I've been into Internet Marketing for the last 6 years so I know this kind of methods very well, the idea about approaching people with a laptop sounds appealing, however people is very skeptic when it comes to give away their personal details and CC info, etc in public places, also when approached that way in a mall! - Specially if we will be requesting then to give away their CC details on an stranger laptop, so maybe you can set a Kiosk in a mall, add some cute models and do it in your nearest mall, I know... higher investment but worth it!!

    Ahh... do not forget to talk to your affiliate manager before you even try something like the method suggested above, this because if all your referred Orders come from the same IP or Ip range you could easily get banned out of the CPA network, it is better to talk to them in advance and warn them, the you can try any suitable CPA offer, they may even suggest one or two for you to promote this way..

    Just my TWO cents.

    Peace & Love!

        Thanks V, but I would really actually take a laptop to a mall and bother people for 60 seconds of their attention. Very literally. You have to be willing to suffer a little discomfort if you dont want to be like the failures, and do what they think is too uncomfortable to do. Otherwise EVERYONE would succeed.

        Yeah, I would call them "Hey You! I have a solution for you, would you like a free consultation, just fill out this here form", and I would make $1500 a week getting 25 or 30 people to do that.

        Thats what we did before the internet, and people still do it, and they get more referrals than most websites.

        The internet just enhances the field of opportunities.
