When you read a book, focus on a conversation, or just think deeply about life, you block out much of the surrounding world and put yourself in a sort of personal trance. These kinds of trances aren't that uncommon at all. But the ability to connect with people while they're in a trance truly is. The best marketing and selling messages are designed to break into the customer's trance and connect with the customer on the level of his or her deepest concerns and interests, creating a window for the marketing message to get through.

By learning to inject themselves into a customer's personal trance, good marketers can turn that personal trance into a buying trance. It sounds like science fiction, but it's not. Trances are real and easy to manipulate if you know their secrets. For daring marketers and salespeople who want to make the sale every time, these cutting-edge techniques in persuasion offer the key to incredible success.
