Hello mattbiz,

The difficulty lies in you requesting an item that costs more than

Hi keystroke

Thanks for looking at my question, I think with a 2 step sales

or sells them something different (A back end product) that is more

I was thinking along the lines of business courses, finance courses
etc but I'm not sure what is out there and will consider anything. One
can always sell insurance, mortgages, holidays etc but there is a lot
of competition as the products are not unique or have no Unique

What were you thinking of, do you have examples of successful
companies that sell products under $100 by telephone?  Willing to look
at anything.  Thanks.
