The reason I bring him up is because one of his competitors (or colleagues I really don't know) is the "pickup artist" Mystery.
I was watching old episodes from "The Pickup Artist Season 2" from a year or two ago and I really have noticed some interesting things about people.
It's funny to see "rejection" or "walls" or "get the hell away from me" in human eyes and sometimes I think many marketers forget that people are having these same reactions when they stare at their computer screen.
I'd like for anyone to have a look at these episodes on VH1 and see if you notice any marketing or sales tricks from an, arguably, very sales driven "game"...

I think there are some great lessons here plus it's pretty funny at times (wow is all i can say in regards to some people's "people" skills).
Have a great evening!
