Sorry, but I respectfully disagree with the concept that there is an order of importance with these 8 elements. If they are not handled with balance and specificity, one element will not support the others!

Kenny, I ask that you defer judgment on the order of these things until I post the blog entry that explains the order. Besides, it is not that these are in order of importance per se, rather they are ordered in importance for likelihood of making a sale. I would love it for you to try finding the order (as subjective as it may be). I still haven’t had a winner, and I am determined to give away the three books.
