My article from last year, entitled “Why I Deleted My Warrior Forum Account“, touched a nerve with a lot of people. It currently has around two hundred comments, most of which came from other disgruntled Warrior Forum members who were unhappy with the way they were treated.
The most common reason given for being unhappy is because they were sold a piece of crap wrapped in tin foil. This is also referred to as a Warrior Special Offer, or if you prefer, a WSO. The Warrior Special Offers Forum has over two million posts, however the products sold there are discussed throughout other forum rooms as well.
People feel aggrieved about paying a lot of money for something that offers very little in return. Who can blame them. The products are marketed to members as a way to make money quickly. Unfortunately, the only thing the products do is show others that the only way to make money on Warrior Forum is to take part in the grand scheme and rip other people off.
A reader named Josh recently left a comment on my Warrior Forum post about a thread published by kencan98 on the BlackHatTeam forum. The person claims to have made over two million dollars by selling WSO’s on Warrior Forum. I have no reason to believe that he is making any of it up.
Those of you who have been working online will not be surprised by some of the techniques such as joining Skype groups in order to meet other marketers and using a different name and brand to sell other products.
What surprises me is that people are still buying these terrible infocrap products as if they are going to change their lives. All they have done is convince thousands of people that you can make millions of dollars online by just a few hours a week.
The thread by Kencan was published in mid 2012, however the techniques discussed in the thread are still used by marketers on Warrior Forum today. Here is the thread in full:
No BS. Let’s get right to it.
Who Am I?
My name is Kenny Cannon. I created some of the best selling WSOs in the history of the Warrior Forum. Some you are familiar with – Commission Overload, Profit Snatcher, Launchpad System, and Offline Client Infusion. Many others under fake names.
Over the past 4 years I’ve done over 2 Million Dollars selling on the Warrior Forum. I’m not bragging, I’m just telling it like it is.
I’ve been in this business for 10 years and worked with some of the biggest names in the business. I’ve worked with some GREAT people like Mike Filsaime – one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met in my life. I’ve also worked with some of the biggest scumbags on the planet – Tim Atkinson comes to mind.
So that’s all you need to know about me.
What You’ll Learn Here?
This report is simple and to the point. I’m making this specifically for my friends in the BH community as well as some of the people on my list. I’m going to share with you EXACTLY how to make a killing online – starting NOW.
This report is free. Not because it’s worthless but because I truly LOVE the BH community.
I find it funny how the Clickbankers and WF members call you guys “scammers” and “thieves”. Like I said, I’ve been in this business for a long time. I’ve been FUCKED by a number of “product creators”. They actually fuck each other more than a teenage couple strung out on X. But I’ve NEVER been stabbed in the back by anyone in the BH community.
So what I’m going to teach you guys is how it’s done. How the big players in this industry do it.
I’m going to give you a clear map from nothing to around $10,000 per month. You won’t get their tomorrow. You won’t get there this month. Probably not even next month. But you WILL get there within 6 months if you follow this plan.
We’re building BUSINESSES here guys, not playing lotto. It takes time. The good news is that you’ll be making money throughout the entire process.
People Buy SHIT!
Lets face it. We’ve all seen the WSOs that are out there. 99% of them are crap. But guess what – people are buying them and they love it!
Warrior Forum members are like people in a casino. They throw up a “chip” and hope for the best. When they lose, what do they do? They throw up another chip.
When they are out of chips they walk around with their head down blaming everyone but themselves. Then the next day they are back with more chips.
Is the casino wrong for giving them a place to blow their money on useless crap? NO!
Is it the casinos fault that they keep coming back? NO!
Do the casinos all follow the same basic model? YES!
Step 1 – Download Something
Download a WSO. I don’t care if it’s about Pintrist, Facebook, Youtube, WHATEVER. It doesn’t matter. Just download a WSO.
Step 2 – Send To India
Or wherever you can find someone to rewrite a report for a few dollars. My outsource team is based in Punjab. Yours can be anywhere. Just send the downloaded WSO to an outsourcer found on Freelancer.com or Odesk.
Step 3 – Write Copy
While in India, write the sales copy for the product. Sales copy on the warrior forum is about as meaningless as wearing a condom during period week. The only thing that matters is TESTIMONIALS. Why does Amazon work so well? Reviews.
So we’ll write short copy (I usually steal it from another WSO and make it fit to my product) and that’s it.
An “Us Vs. Them” headline
-What it is
-Why they need it
-What it’s not
-How to get it
Then fill the rest with testimonials.
Step 4 – Getting Testimonials
Join a skype group and act like your a genius. I’m serious. Go on the Warrior Forum and look at all the skype groups they have going on. If you’ve spent an hour on BHT, you know more than 90% of warriors. Just join a group and start answering questions.
They’ll be all over your dick like a crack whore from Alabama in seconds. No offense to my friends in Alabama by the way (if I even have friends in Alabama).
Once they think you’re the God of the internet, just tell them that you are going to use their name in a testimonial for a product launch. They’ll THANK YOU for using their name.
Step 5 – Launch and focus on 10.
Now here’s the deal. Focusing on 10 sales per bump is a joke. But I have trouble with math and the numbers work well to illustrate how I roll. Here it is.
10 sales per bump. 10 dollar report. $100 in rev. $40 in expense. $60 in profit.
10 bumps = 100 customers. $1,000 in rev. $400 in expense. $600 in profit.
I have an average of 20% of people rebuying (they buy one, they’ll buy another).
WSO 2 (I MAIL MY 100 CUSTOMERS)
10 bumps = 120 customers. $1,200 in rev. $400 in expense. $800 in profit.
WSO 3 (I MAIL MY 120 CUSTOMERS)
10 bumps = 144 customers. $1,440 in rev. $400 in expense. $1040 in profit.
And on and on.
In reality your numbers will be much higher. The point is to focus on how it grows.
You’ll want to do one WSO per week on the same day and stick to the same topic.
If you start with a Facebook WSO, continue with Facebook for as long as you can.
Once you get to 7 total WSO’s, you launch all of them together as a package for 3 times the price.
*** LEAVE THE INDIVIDUAL WSOS UP LIVE WHEN YOU LAUNCH. THIS BUILDS REAL VALUE***
Step 6 – Create Your Team
To sell a WSO you need…
-An email address
-A warrior form ID
-A paypal account
After you get up and running with your first WSO, it’s time to start creating your team.
How do you do this?
You get another IP (strong VPN or get a dedicated server like I use)
You get a new paypal account (DBA, Checking, Paypal)
You get a new email and Warrior ID.
Then you start again from step 1.
Eventually your goal is to have 7 total team members (all being YOU of course) launching one WSO per week.
For the record, I currently have 25 total accounts and I have 3 dedicated employees who’s only job is to make sure at least one of our WSOs is on the first page at all times.
1. Download a WSO
2. Send to India to get rewritten
3. Write copy and get testimonials
5. Focus on the growth over the long term
6. Create TEAM and start again at step 1.
DO THIS! It works every time!
There you have it people. Straight from the horse’s mouth: People Buy SHIT!.
My advice to all of you is to stop buying shit from places such as Warrior Forum and start spending time developing a website with a proper business model. In the long term, that is what is going to make you money.
