Re: I offer both
I offer both kinds of ordering for a $400 course I sell to a niche market.
For that kind of money I mind picking up the phone :-)
Some people want to talk to a real person before investing that kind of money and others don't care.
I find that it runs about 65% who order online and about 35% who order by phone.
In my opinion if you don't offer both you are losing out on some sales.
