    I'd like to open this thread for a couple different reasons

    1) there's a lot of stuff in sales and in everyday life that we do and don't do that may or may not influence decisions, and I'd like to bring some of that to the table here in this thread

    2) I love psychology and I research NLP and hypnosis quite a lot and think it'd be cool to have a thread dedicated to something along the lines of NLP and sales, also NLP patterns created around getting people to buy something

    3) I'd like to work out either a template, or a model for creating an insanely amazing and captivating sales letter that will have people hooked and wanting to contact you over whatever it is your trying to sale. Or even a crazy good sales pitch as well.

    I'm going to start off this thread with 2 very cool articles I've found over at cracked.com

    Interesting read - I never gave a thought why web2.0 buttons are shiny.

    Crowd sourcing a sales letter is probably not the way to go here since everyone will have access to it.

    I would also recommend cold calling. Check out this guy:

    I do plan on going over and researching some if not all of Bandler's work. I mostly take things away from Derren Brown, ross jeffries back in my PUA "hey-day" and general psychology/watching a ton of commercials and infomercials to see what it is and how they elicit feelings anchoring to their product.

    I dunno if I'll what you say ever come up with an exact script pattern or definite outline of a great sales letter/pitch, but I do believe there is a lot of things that can be done when it comes to establishing rapport, and embedding possible subliminal commands in text and in everyday language.

    This thread will mainly be ideas, suggestions, and psychological triggers that may be anchored with a brand or product being pushed

    With all this said, I believe this dude hits on some very good points on a very first meeting with a potential client

    very cool clip, the guy's good, he knows it too, or he wouldn't have made the clip, lol. he paces and leads, mirrors conversation, and pulls some very good psychological ploys, very well done
