You do the marketing and then farm out the tech work to India - that's how it's done these days. Although, people are starting to figure out that they can just cut out the American salesman and go directly to India and save all the American overhead and commissions that just pay for the fancy suits, Exlax watches, and huge CEO salaries.
Exlax watches? Remind me to never ask you what time it is...

Amazon.com To Accept Game Trade-Ins
