    If you are currently looking into Coastal Vacations and are interested in the Closing Center to do the selling for you, I have exciting information:

    The Coastal Closers are in pre-launch for a service that is not offered anywhere else in Coastal - soon we will be calling and closing RETAIL sales for you!

    This is an amazing chance to generate $1,000+ commissions from multiple avenues: selling both the Coastal business opportunity and the Coastal package to individuals and businesses.

    Now people who realize the huge potential for retail sales but want the flexibility and advantages of a Closing Center to do the work have the best of both worlds!

    This sounds like a great service! How much does it cost and how is it tracked?

    Is there more info?

    Hi Jeff,

    It is, and we're very excited!

    It's still in pre-launch, so I can't answer your questions yet. Will post as I know more.

    Hi Maria,

    Yes, they are the co-founders. A couple of Harley-riding fun lovers from Yakima, Washington![​IMG]

    Pretty much goes to show that anyone can and will do well with Coastal, don't you think?

    Btw, for those who are interested in adding this new Closing Center retail aspect to their business, send me a PM for a special offer that I am running through June 15th - only for current Coastal members.

    I know the promotion is in pre-launch but is there a proven track record of the team already doing this, closing retail sales, or something they hope to get into over time, and perfect the system as they go.

    So in essence.... are they currenty running, whether pre-launch or not a successful model, that is scalable for the masses, that gives each person an equal shot?

    Is it already a proven model?

    Hi Jeff,

    Jim and Vickie ran their business primarily as retail when they started. In fact, in their bio, they talk about how they began Coastal right after 9/11 (can you imagine!) and still became successful by promoting to the businesses in their area.

    So, yes, they have a firm foundation in retail selling and the experience to train members of the Coastal Closers in that arena. What they are doing now is training the sales staff for the process of closing a retail sale. Once that is done, they will educate our members on effective ways to promote retail to take advantage of the new service.

    And, yes, it will give each person an equal shot at success.

    As most of us here already know, it is what you do with your training and tools that will ultimately make you successful! Those who use what is given and apply their own determination will come out on top - especially with the advantage and support of a professional Closing team behind them.

    So, how long before WCYS comes up with its retail version? [​IMG]

    So they are in essence, adding to their services.

    Not only will they close biz opp sales, they'll close retail now too. which WCYS does not do.

    You still have to link the lead into them or they have a program that does that for you? Meaning.. autolead generations coming in with your codes attached and a close is done for you hands off?

    Yes, they are expanding their services to close retail as well as biz opp.

    At this time, a Coastal Closers member promoting retail will have to advertise, market online or network in their community to generate interested retail leads. Just as we all do in general for Coastal. Then, they enter those leads in the back office and a Closer will call the business or individual who requested more information to close the sale.

    As time goes on, though, the typical pattern with the Closers is to hone in on lead generation techniques that maximize return for their members. So, I wouldn't be surprised if a "hands off" option is made available as this new service matures...

    Also, there will be a referral aspect for the retail program - similar to the concept of "passing up" sales. But they didn't elaborate on that when they made the announcement because everything is still in process.

    Have a great night everyone!

    Hi Cindy,

    Thank you!

    Yes, I did build it. Actually, that is a video that I created specifically to use at vacation parties. It makes a good lead-in/background to play on a laptop while people are mingling.

    The site in my link is temporary right now. I am finishing up a new capture page and decided to put that up until it is done in a day or so.

    VERY BIG CAUTION WITH THE COASTAL CLOSERS.....

    I've spoken with ALOT of former Closers and they have some real eye openers. "Closers" who've never closed a sale. I spent a few days with Jeremy who was a closer and he was one of the FEW who'd made a sale.

    If a call center is the direction you want to go...find someone with We Close Your Sales and make your investment.

    Sorry Tonya...there are jsut too many red flags with them.

    Hmm, wonder who all those people are with the PPC and other ads for the Coastal Closers then?

    Could they be people who were "closed" by our professionals and then joined the group...just as it's supposed to work?

    Tonya...perhaps I'm wrong, but you ARE talking about the Jim Stevens group, right??

    Quoting: CoastalTodayHmm, wonder who all those people are with the PPC and other ads for the Coastal Closers then?

    I don't know...but if I were going to be working with a call center I'd go with the wcys group, as they have their stuff together.

    On another note. The Automated Sales System is the only one that seems to be worse than Jims.

    Hello

    personally I would be wary of Jim and any of his projects (can't he centralize his web page ....it's aligned left and looks goofy) ....sorry Tonya

    and the automated sales system has never called me back (a couple of tests...and they failed).

    as with everything, there is no complete hands off system, and if you are hands off, then you will lose sales to those who are more aggressive.

    Follow up personally with all your WCYS optins, you will be happy you did.

    cheers

    Hi Jay and Maria,

    Having had a positive experience with Closers, I have to disagree with both of you - though I will mention your comment about the misaligned webpage to Jim, Maria.[​IMG]

    I, too, made a number of test calls with ALL of the other call centers and did not experience the contact that I expected either. But with the Closers, our members can see exactly what effort and activity is put forth when they enter the leads into their back office. So, I stand by my group as a very effective, efficient and forward-thinking model for a successful Coastal business!

    You are very right, though, that nothing is completely hands-off. Whether experienced or a newbie, you must be willing to be a point of contact for your potential associates for encouragement and questions. Everyone looking into Coastal wants to know with whom they will work and how well they will be supported - don't disappoint them!

    Hello Tonya

    you are right

    there is a service, group and director for everyone out there and the marketplace is a big one.

    If I had to say what is foremost on any new prospects mind, it is whether they will still receive support after the training sales are done....

    it may be a good thing to address, before the question even pops up.


    cheers
