"A-lister Approved Best Practices For Soul-Selling"
I haven't seen this list yet and google is not yet returning results.

So in the spirit here it is;
1. Use the product
I would but my VB supply has run out.

2. Disclose your interest
Yes it was sent to me free [I wish] but only because I am such a good customer and plan to host a party for meaningful people with the pallet of VB sent to me.

3. Make a meaningful analogy about the product.
Drinking beer is like going to a peace demonstration, makes you feel good when you do it, but the after affects can be bad.

4. Comment on the good the company does as a side note.
I am sure Fosters Corp buys from farmers and they are doing it tough. Supporting farmers can't be wrong?

Gee, I was so looking forward to discussing this with my friends and neighbors when that Wal*Mart blog bus came to my town!

Worry not, Seth, it all gets much easier once you realise the world actually run by only seven people ;-)
