Now, having plunked down the money for the e-book or taken the one-hour teleseminar, she may feel she knows, likes, and trusts you well enough to wade even deeper into the help you have to offer. At level three, she's moved past the taste-testing phase and is ready
At the fourth level, $200 to $500, the customer will be ready to spring for your big-ticket items, such as a workbook, six CDs, and follow-up calls. She's reached what we call the "sweet spot," the point at which she feels connected to you and your message and regards you as someone who can help her.
