Tip #4: Get Inspiration From The Greats…

When you’re about to start your WSO, you should make sure to look over all the past WSO’s that were greatly successful. What sort of things are you looking for? Well, first of all, longevity. For example, how long did this WSO last from it’s original post date, to the date people stopped posting on it regularly? This will give you a good idea of how many times it was reposted, which will give you an excellent idea of how successful it was overall. On top of this, you’re also looking for things like a really high post count, and a really high views count.

Ideally, you should be finding these in your own niche, though sometimes you might garner some value out of WSO’s in other niches as well. Once you find these successful listings, all you have to do, is emulate them, as best as you can. Obviously, you shouldn’t just copy them 100%, but, you can look at them and figure out… “Ok, why did this subject line work?” … “Why did this headline work?”, etc. Also, you can look at the offers themselves, and try to look for common denominators which will help you determine what sorts of offers are converting, and what ones aren’t. Don’t reinvent the wheel, use past successes to your advantage.

WSO Successes

Tip #5: Get Grade A Reviews…

If you’re going to be launching a new product, even if you’re new to the WarriorForum, you can still do alright, IF you can manage to get excellent reviews from authoritative and respected people. A strange thing happens, when you manage to get these kinds of reviews… the credibility of the person reviewing you sort of “transfers” to you, you could say, so that your instantly seen as trustworthy and respectable to those people who trust and respect the person who is reviewing you.

So, how do you get reviews like this? Well, if there’s something you can do for the person you want the review from, such as recommending their product or service within your own course, for example, that’s great, you’ll quite often be able to get fantastic reviews this way, but if not, you can always just ask. You can send them a private message on WarriorForum for example, saying something along the lines of “Hey, I read your eBook, and I really appreciate the advice, and I can’t thank you enough, I really love the info you have to offer, and respect your opinion… that’s why I was wondering if you’d take a moment to review my product … (a few details about the product). If you could offer me an honest review of what you think of it, I would be very grateful. Thank you.”. And it’s as simple as that… no need to overcomplicate it. You may be surprised just how many of the top gurus will respond to a message like that.

Tip #6: As With Most Marketing, Split Test, Split Test, Split Test…

Just as the title implies, don’t just try out one subject line, and hope for the best. You should be tracking your results, and split testing many different variations of your offer. For example, you may want to start by split-testing the subject lines of the WSO, then move onto the headline, then the price, and of course, you should also be testing out the time of day that you bump your thread. It may do better at night, or it might do better at the crack of dawn… though you won’t know until you test it. If you want, you can track this data simply by figuring out how many sales you got with each subject line, headline, or what not, and then just marking that info down on an Excel Spreadsheet. It might not be very advanced or fancy… but it gets the job done.

Tip #7: Don’t Just Go For The Sale…

When you’re offering a product, for example, you’re paying to have your ad posted and “bumped” on WarriorForum, so instead of just profiting directly from the sale, why not also monetize those that leave without buying? You can redirect them to an offer where they can get something else other than the product, totally free, just in exchange for an e-mail. You can then market to this list… pitch them your product and of course, also offer them other products and services which they may be interested in. You’re paying for the traffic, so you might as well do a good job monetizing it.
