Yesterday I visited the Warrior Forum because my WSO for Gram Poster Elite was awarded one of the Top 5 WSOs of the week. I was surprised to see this given nobody had commented on my post yet. But, I guess it’s based on the editor’s approval and they liked my software.
I really haven’t visited the Warrior Forum much since the times I sold products primarily through WSOs. At that time the Warrior Forum wasn’t owned by Freelance.com and it’s changed a lot since then. If you haven’t logged into your Warrior Forum account or you never created one take a look at what they have going on.
The Warrior Forum has three premium areas that I know about.
- The War Room (a private / premium area of the forum)
- The WSO Section (you pay for your own thread post)
- The Classifieds (buy services from other warriors)
What led me to creating a WSO on the Warrior Forum for Gram Poster was there Black Friday sale it was only $20 and I figured for that price I couldn’t go wrong. It did result in some sales so I made my investment back. You can’t discount the backlink value of WSO threads either.
The Warrior Forum is an established authority domain in the internet marketing industry. I’ve seen people create WSO threads for major product launches and do really well by offering the right bonus special or discount. They usually rank on page one of Google without much effort other than some blasted backlinks.
Notice I’m not really mention any of the forum content. You can be the judge of the value of the forum content. I do like the layout of some of there guest posts. They seem to be focusing on the members and the experts which is a good move.
From what it looks like they moved the War Room to more of this style where they feature IM legends like Matt Bacak and Rand Fishkin. Matt’s a pretty cool guy and a master of email marketing.
I promoted a few of Matt Bacak’s low ticket items several years ago and made over $500 in affiliate sales for him so he sent me a box set from a talk he did for some private warrior event. It was really cool information about his Clickbank launch at the time that made him millions of dollars. Matt if you read this some day because of one of those Google Alerts, I watched your program.
Rand Fishkin is also a smart SEO expert so I’m sure this type of expert advice is worth the cost of admission. I was a little bummed when I realized that my War Room membership which was initially grandfathered in when the new members took over is no longer valid now that they’ve added the new content.
You’re probably not going to find the next big thing in the Warrior Forum WSO section which might be why you’re reading this blog in the first place. Most likely you’ve found the people you want to listen to and you’re not searching the newbie forums for answer. This said there are some refreshing posts on the Warrior Forum in the free section. In fact, that’s where I found the most value as I dove back into the mix.
I think the goal of the people who purchased the warrior forum was to make all the information more accessible in addition to featuring the authority members as you see above. They do have a lot of new features and navigating the site is much easier.
Is the Warrior Forum still worth visiting today?
Many of the people on my list are warrior forum members and we’ve all seen the changes since freelancer.com took over, what are your thoughts on them? Comment below and let me know.
I’ll be launching a new product in the coming weeks and I plan on giving away 5 review copies to people who comment.
