This technique is non-traditional however it is extremely popular among thought leaders in the branding and marketing world today. Once the consumer opts in to receiving a brand's content it is a grant of permission into the user’s world. This grant of authority is a marketing technique used by brands to sell goods and services.   Seth goes to cover three strategies used:  1.    Anticipated: people will expect the service/product from the brand  2.    Personal: How the marketing relates to the consumer  3.    Relevant: the marketing information is that your customers are interested in     5 Levels of Permission are as followed:  -          Situational – permission by providing personal information  -          Brand Trust - permission by continuing supplying consumers need  -          Personal Relationship – permission by relationship with someone in the brand  -          Points Permission – permission by incentive or opportunity  -          Intravenous Permission - permission by specific good or service
