    Good content Joshua, but I’m curious about that 6 part case study you did. in video 1 you said you would stop after it made money. I do understand that what you were showing us takes A LOT of your time but maybe after making a disclaimer after video 6 that you will hire someone to specifically continue to make posts/comments in the forums/FB groups to see how long an income, however modest, is generated. Just curious.

    Thanks Josh. So it appears It’s really really really important to understand the psychology of the buyer and where they are in the buy cycle.
