Default Re: How Jay Abraham sold $28 million dollars of a $377 book...

Not a bad idea...

One more thing I noticed...

A person could use this technique on a smaller scale locally to sell just about anything... however, I think that using this to sell consulting or a high-priced book or a local high-priced newsletter makes the most sense.
