Warrior Special Offers are a great method for lead generation. You pay $20 for a WSO sales thread and you can put your special offer in front of the traffic on the Forum.
I have noticed that a number of Warriors create free WSO’s – these convert at around 50% or better. If you were then to add a low-priced upsell after the free offer, it would not take much to recoup the expense of your thread and you would have a list of prospects and buyers to market to.
The only problem with these leads is that these prospects would be comparatively low value because it is likely that they are being bombarded by offer after offer and some of them will be freebie seekers. Also, most people do not value that which they get for free so they may not even consume your product!
I was doing some research in Warrior Plus and I noticed that some marketers are using this method frequently and here are their results:
|Product /||Launch Date||Sales||Visitor||Visitor||Avg.||Comm||Refund||Niche|
|FREE WSO: Fiverr Informer||Fiverr|
|FREE WSO: The Basics of Internet Marketing||13/11/2014||100+||47%||$0.00||$0.00||0%||IM Basics|

|FREE WSO: The 3 Pillars Your Internet Business Needs||IM Basics|
|Easy Online Profits||12/10/2014||1000+||8%||$0.00||$0.05||0%|
As you can see from these stats, some of these WSO’s are getting a 1,000 plus leads.
I notice that Barb Ling tends to create products around breaking news whilst Reed Floren is attracting newbies with products that cover the basics of internet marketing. Both these experienced marketers will be montetising these leads on the back-end like crazy.
It may be worth moving the squeeze page offer on your blog onto the Warrior Forum to get the benefit of the Forum traffic – it’s just an idea!
You can keep bumping the thread as long as you keep getting some good leads and can monitor your return from the leads that you generate.
Perhaps this research will give you the motivation to use Warrior Special Offers for lead generation purposes – if so, join my list if you want to keep informed about more strategies for making money online or indeed for list building.
