For those marketers who haven’t been marketing very long or just get out too much, there’s a place where an awful lot of marketers, wannabes, experts, gurus and others go, especially when they want to learn or share knowledge and opinions. Just about every marketer mentions it now and again, usually along with the strange term WSO (pronounced wizzo).
That place is The Warrior Forum. And WSO stands for Warrior Special Offer. The two are related and here’s a bit of an explanation for you.
The Warrior Forum has been around for years and started as forums do as a place for people of mutual interest to discuss things. It has several sub-sections including ones that discuss every aspect of internet marketing. It’s also a place where you can contact people who will do various things IM – although usually for a fee. Got an idea for a WordPress plugin? Find a programmer on Warrior. Need to know how solo ads work? There’s several hundred experts on Warrior. Even article marketing, social media marketing and so much more.
The best bit about it is though is that it costs nothing to join. It’s like all forums, it has its controversies, idiots and nay-sayers, but these people do not tend to last very long, so as forums go, it’s quite a respectable place.
There is one place though that is off limits to the free and casual reader… The War Room.
It costs to join, currently $97 a year. (I was lucky. I got in when it was $20)
What do you get for the extra money?
The first thing you get is the ability to post WSOs to the general forum population (and visitors). It will cost you more again to post each WSO but a well written sales page (not my forte at the moment) will more than make that money back. Some people even pay to put up WSOs that are free to download – usually (but not always) in exchange for your name and email.
The other great thing about the War Room is that the level of expertise goes up in the discussions and there is a great deal of “This is my next WSO, can I have some opinions?” as well as “This is my old WSO – Free to War Room members” so it is a great place to get more information as well as things for free that you would have been happy to pay for!
So if you’re not a Warrior yet, I strongly suggest that you become at least a free member. See how the forum operates and get a good feel for the site. Then dig out your wallet and join the War Room. That is money that you will definitely not regret paying out in your search for Internet Marketing excellence.
