I am going to file this particular video under digital products since being an affiliate – for the most part – entails marketing for an electronic product or service.

I received a comment on one of the premium posts the other day that really got me thinking about overcoming objections in sales.
The comment was from a visitor by the name of Kevin and he didn’t pull any punches when it came to what he though about my premium content:
