Well, I disagree with the notion that there is any difference between
selling a service and selling goods.  Ask any Economist about that. 
Unless you are in a regulated insdustry, the price of a product OR
service is still goverened by the good old "supply - demand" curve.  We
are all selling something, be it a service or a product.  The basic
rules are the same.  If we can all understand this basic concept and put
this knowledge to good use, we can use it to our advantage.
