Fellow Coastal Reps, Let's use this thread to help eachother out and give some encouragement to the new members of Coastal who have yet to see the success they want to have in Coastal Vacations. It took me 2 months to make my first sale in Coastal. I was excited and scared when I started much like most of you guys on this forum. I thouht I knew how to use payperclick advertising but, after going 2 months without a sale, I finally decided to actually LISTEN to the wonderful training available in our back office at the WeCloseYourSales.com call center. I learned tons of stuff I didn't know and when I applied what I learned I generated $4,000 in 3 days! I just had to except the fact that I didn't know what I thought I did. I had never been successful in any other home business but now, with the training the Coastal Vacations Call Center has in their back office and the coaching from my director I am successful in Coastal Vacations. The most important thing to remember is DON'T GIVE UP!!!! The one thing that all people who don't succeed in Coastal have in common is that they eventually give up. If you aren't making sales then change your strategy. Don't keep throwing money away on leads if they aren't working for you. Move over and do internet advertising or newspaper classifieds. Our call center says that most of the calls that come in to the center are from classified ads in papers. Now, personally, I haven't had success with classifieds but many people have. You need to find out the best method of advertising for your personality. Ok, end of tip number one. Who else can offer our new members some advice?
