Lot's of people reading this forum are researching Coastal for the first time. If this is you then WELCOME. You have come to the right place. You will see lots of Coastal Vacations members and directors posting here. You can ask questions and you will get answers. You will get LOTS of answers so read them carefully and YOU determine what information serves you best. Choosing a director can be a big deal. You need to find someone who will mesh with your way of thinking and your personality. There are a few directors that focus on making as many sales as they can and they make a lot. Some make 5, 10 maybe even 20 sales in a week. That's great for them. They have found a way to market that works for them and they are working it hard to make those kind of personal sales. I try to think of Coastal in a different way and this is how my personal team thinks also. If I can make 3 to 5 personal sales a month then I am happy. Why, because I know I will be able to spend quality time with my new members showing them how to market, doing three way calls, helping write ads or whatever they need me to help with. This also means they will be passing up sales to me which will increase my income during that month. That is income to me that cost me nothing but some time training my new members. That is time well spent. This helps them become productive sooner than later and lets them know that I am dedicated to help them succeed. Some people think I am crazy and think that everyone should have the goal of making as many sales as possible. I just don't agree with that. With Coastal, you need to create members who are learning how to train their members to duplicate. You need to spend time with them to do that. I personally feel that I can do that much better if I have a limited number of sign ups a month to do that. If I get 3 to 5 a month then I will be happy. If you are one of those you can be assured that I will give you personal attention. If you choose one of my personal team members like Bill and Noreen Decker, Susan Eng, Dawn Orbeck, or several others that are on this forum and part of my team you will get that kind of attention. Some choose other methods of marketing and don't post here but they agree with our philosophy. The directors that are making massive sales are using a system that works for them. That's great and it works for many. It's up to you. Which system fits you best? This is where your research comes in. Read all you can about your group and director. Talk to them personally and see how their group markets the Coastal Product. If you want to talk to myself or one of my team members let me know. We can vouch for eachother and I will even give you my direcotors email so you can ask him about me. This is a great company and it will work GREAT for you if you make the right choices for yourself. Good luck in your research and I we all hope to say WELCOME TO COASTAL!
