You hear one guru telling you should do a particular thing to succeed, then another guru is advising the exact opposite.
A website that takes each of these “rules” and gives all the reasoning pro and contra, so you can decide what is right for you.
It will make the bond stronger, and they will give you important insight (and if you sell to them immediately after, you’ll get higher conversion rates.)
The primary technique is to ask for their advice on something. Asking for their advice (and not opinion or information) makes them cross over to your side. They are now your trusted advisor because they have committed to helping you. This can be done in a retail environment, website, email, etc. If they react you will gain insight from them, and you might want to make them a special offer after they reacted – they will be more open to it so your conversions should be higher.

Peer to peer experts network. You are an expert at something and so is each one of the members of the network. Anytime you need an answer or some information; you can ask the network and members who are able at that time will immediately give you their best answers. If too many answers are sent, editors (also part of the network) will filter them and distil them to a useable list of pieces of information, ideas, advice, etc. You can use the network only if you also have an expertise and contribute to it by answering others’ questions.
You go to a store (a book store for instance), and you are interested in a particular subject. You find the shelf you’re looking for, but there are so many options, that unless you already have some knowledge, it’s hard to decide what books to buy and in what order to read them.
Make an appointment with a specialist and specify what you are interested in (for instance books about the history of science, or productivity, etc.) You’ll meet at an agreed upon time at a big store, and he will do a whole tour of the subject with you, and give you an independent advice on what to buy.
I would like to have all the great investor in “my club”. I would listen to what they say about the markets and decide who to follow on what trade.
Invite some of the great investors out there to form a private club. Members would pay to get into the club and have access to continuous information from these investors. The investors would give regular analysis and precise recommendations with explanations of when to trade, at what prices, when to sell and why they think this will work. Investors get paid based on the performance of their recommendations and how many took their advice.
