    i was told that having your own call center for your coastal business was not allowed.

    like passing the package up to the agent???

    Lion Child,
    I know that our call center, the www.wecloseyoursales.com call center, is alive and well. We definately not banned and the person that actually owns the call center is good friends with the owner of Coastal Vacations. Lot's of people don't like us because we are making so many sales and because we are so attractive to people who don't like to do the actual selling but I can assure you that we are NOT banned and are extremely successful.

    So, who is/are the owners of Coastal Vacations?....
    Where are they, where are their offices?...
    Where are the Coastal Vacation offices, not where they receive mail, but where are the desks, the packages, where do the top bananas meet to discuss, lead, Coastal?

    These are some if not the first questions that a prospect wants answers to, in order to consider the offer seriously and not discard it as a scam-which by now, I know it is not, by the way- being that so many scams are around.
    I bet that many good leads are lost because of those original doubts.
    It has taken me, so far, more than six months to finally decide to join in, after doing my do diligence. In all that time I could have made quite a few coins and more, don't you think?

    I suggest that from the start, all new prospects be reassured of the reality of Coastal. . .can anyone think why it should not be so?. . .

    I have lost probably 1 or 2 sales from people not being able to speak to someone in charge but that is all. Not to many but I do agree that it would be nice to be able to send someone to a website that would explain who is what and where does the money go. My biggest complaint is there isn't anyone to answer the phone at the shipping center. All you get is a machine. They want to use the conference calls to answer questions and I guess that will work but it sure would be helpful if they had a couple of people answering the phone to answer questions about shipping and stuff.

    Hi Joe,

    Quoting: joesosaSo, who is/are the owners of Coastal Vacations?....

    There is no owner of Coastal, Coastal is not a company. There are no offices, desks, etc...

    There is a shipping and fulfillment center that can be replaced at any time, which put together and send out the packages for us.

    Coastal is an association; each director is an independent business owner. That is why our commissions are so great [​IMG] There is no one to cut into our profits.

    There is a great group of people that we refer to as the Board of Directors. They oversee everything, they make sure that the shipping and fulfillment center is doing what they are supposed to do, they make sure that the vendors are holding up their end of the deal, they hold training calls and Q&A calls, they set up the Coastal conferences, etc...

    Coastal is absolutely real! It was set up as an association to protect all of the good, ethical business owners in our organization.

    Hope this helps!

    With the call center, I already have L1 and L2 certificates, can I still use a call center?
  7. hsimpsonjr

    hsimpsonjr Silver Member

    YES you can. You would have to pay the set up fees, and the commission to the member who attracted you to the site and you would still have to qualify unless you are already qualified but you won't have to buy the vacation packages again so it would be significantly less than usual.

    Please reply to this message with your business e-mail. I would like to contact you to ask you more questions regarding the Call Center. You seem to be very knowledgeable in many areas of this business. I look forward to speaking with you on the phone.

    I have two question concerning call centers;

    1. How does the call center know which director generated the lead? Some of the web sites I've looked at didn't have pin# identifing the director.

    2. How much would it be to join a call center, for someone is not a member of the call centers group?

  11. hsimpsonjr

    All of our members have member ID's that tell the call center who they are so they get credited with the sale. The rep won't continue the call if you don't have a member ID to give.

    Hi Joe,
    Further to Harold's post, the key is that you MUST have your ID Code when you advertise, you're only shooting yourself in the foot if you don't!
    I assure you the Sales Center will not turn away any business.....
    To get in to the Call Center if you're a qualified director you pay $1700 at L1 (no need to buy the pkg again). If you are new just coming in to the business it will cost $1995 for Level 1.
    Same goes for L2, if you are qualified, the cost would be $4200 ($4995 less $795) otherwise it is $4995.

    hope that helps,

    Thank you for your response.
    I didn't realize I would have to fill out the info request form, in order gain the contact info with your pin#.
    I looked thru your web site, it's very well organized and very informative. I think the key is to max your exposure to your intro page to generate leads back to the call center.
    As for the $4200, there is no pkg purchased this is simple the cost for the call center and is this a one time cost?

    Hi Joe,
    The cost I quoted you includes you having the Travel Package.
    I'm sure you'll agree it's important to use the package too, it will solidify your belief in the product and subsequently increase your sales just from your enthusiasm alone.

    The advantage in going with the call center is it's a one time cost and you can utilize them for as long as you wish.

    If you want to buy leads and call them yourself and share the business the traditional way you can do that too, you're not locked into running your business one way. I believe in being creative and using the call center gives you flexibility and leverage.

    You're right in that maximizing exposure is key and we show you 150+ ways to market your site (some of them free). There is no shortage of marketing strategies and training. If you call the Sales Center they will explain it in detail.

    If you wish to speak with me directly, please feel free. My cell number is at the bottom of the automated email that is sent you.

    PS - Joe, how's it coming along in getting your Director's release?

    Quoting: Lion_childi was told that having your own call center for your coastal business was not allowed.

    The only way I've heard this is that the Coastal Vacations Board of Directors do not "Endorse" a call center.

    The Board of Directors and the original call center have worked well together to keep an open relationship. They are still not endorsing the call centers, but they are not BANNING them either.

    I don't know.. I've been watching this business for quite some time and seen more then one "call centre" go by the wayside.

    They say don't knock it till you have tried it.. but in MY experience the fortune is truly in the follow up. I have NEVER made a sale in one call and it is VERY rare for people to call ME. So, if the objective of the call centre is to "get the phones rining off this hook" I just don't see how that would happen!

    Sure, I'm not a sales pro.. but some telemarketer that DOESN'T own a package and has no experience using it getting someone to fork over $2000 or so on one phone call?

    I'm one of those owl personalities.. NO WAY I would ever do that. I don't care how well that person sweet talks me.

    It may NOT be the "easy route" to wealth.. but I run my business myself, and choose who I want to work with. I make sure they have what it takes to be successful, know what I am all about and what I value and stand for. That takes more then one phone call!

    Just my .02!

    Just a note about the Call Center. Jani, you are correct about the fact that there are more than one call center. The members of this forum who are with a call center are with the ORINGINAL WeCloseYourSales call center which is also the most successful one. We are the only Call center that is actually a call center where there are full time employees that man the phones and present the business. It is true that the employees of the call center are NOT Coastal members. The reason is ethics. They can't steal your leads if they aren't members. That is one of the common lies that people spread about the call center. The sales executives make thier money by making sales for us. They not only present the business initially but also do FOLLOW UP CALLS. They don't make money unless they make sales so they will do what they need to do to make those sales and that means follow up calls. They know the product VERY well because they present it everyday and they are doing a very good job because the call center sign up rate is exploding right now. One good thing about the call center is that, after you are qualified you can do the business with or without the call center. That means if you wanted to do retail or just sell own your own you definately have that option.

    I would have to agree with you....I have a hard time excepting that you sit back and let others do the work for you.....I don't see that people as a whole are motivated enough to call in all on their own....It just doesn't work for me!!

    However, I can say that I know it does really work, I mean look at the people on this forum. I also know, however, that they don't make all their sales with the call centre. They do a lot of it themselves if they so choose......but then they still only get the $1000, and still sign their prospects up with the call centre..

    Hey - when you do this, do you still have to pay the call centre? Even if they didn't do any of the work?

    I know a lot of people really like the call centre because they don't have to "SELL" and that word scares people!!

    Basically in comes down to each to their own.....

    Hi Lindsay,
    When a prospect calls the call center and wants to speak with the person that attracted them to the call center then we do talk to them. That is perfectly natural and we definately want to build a relationship with the person as quickly as possible so that they know we are for real and that we are serious about our training. I will even go into my back office and see who is going to my site and call them if they are going back more than just one time. Like you said, it's up to you and if you don't want to sign up people through the call center then you don't have to use them. The call center is HUGELY attractive because it does offer people the option to just advrtise. My first 5 sales were made COMPLETELY by the prospect seeing my google adwords ad and opting into my site and then calling the call center on their own and the call center closing the sale for me while I was at my regular job. As more sales are made, most members gain confidence and will start being more proactive to accelerate their sales and get them started quicker. It's a great system that works with all levels of involvement.
