Self-identified incels usually stress looks as the most important.
The PUA (and therapy) industry is dependent on trying to make people think they can cheat lookism to a large extent.
A pickup artist or PUA is a person who claims he can help incels get positive IOIs through social manipulation ("game") or social fraud ("faking it").

One site that had a lot of incels: was almost exclusively dedicated to exposing pick up artists during first years of the site. Self-identified incels (and others) instead advocate LMS (looks, money, status) theory, but don't guarantee success, only increasing the odds that a woman will pick you when you approach her.
Incels and others say that for men that have normal social skills (most men), 'game' is a scam, and the only way to improve in the eyes of women sexually is through improving one's looks, money, or status.
Jeffries One of the first mainstream PUAs was Ross Jeffries who in the 1990s advocated NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to attract women, or the technique of influencing female attraction by use of subliminal phrases in conversations.
So for instance, the PUA would emphasise the words, "LICK," and, "MY", plus, "COCK", hidden in a conversation stream to supposedly 'program' the target to eventually perform fellatio on him.
Given the advent of the #metoo movement and the rise of online dating, it's pretty clear the PUA industry is increasingly moribund, but still somewhat influential.
