Hi (Prospect's Name),

Thank you for your email. I appreciate your level of motivation in getting the information as quickly as possible. I understand that starting your own business is exciting and scary and I'm sure you have a lot of questions for me. In order to provide the information to you as you requested, it will be necessary for me to conduct a short interview with you to determine what information you require.

Additionally, it takes a great deal of time, effort, and money on my part to set someone up successfully in their own home-based business. I will need to be certain that you and I will be able to work together.

Once I have qualified you with this short interview, I will direct you through the information gathering process so that you are able to make an informed decision.

Please call me toll-free at . If you don't reach me, please leave me a message to let me know the best time to reach you.

Or, if you prefer, you can just email me your phone number and the best time to reach you.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

#How Much Does It Cost?

Hi (Prospect's Name),

I received your email requesting information regarding the investment for starting this business with Coastal Vacations. First off, I would like to commend you for understanding that there is an investment involved in owning your own business.

Of course, it requires time, effort, dedication, and capital to start a business that can realistically produce a six-figure income in your first year. The amount of your investment will depend on how quickly you want to get into profit at the higher commission levels.

Starting at a higher level will only jump start your business and position you for profit much quicker. There are currently three different levels to choose from and you will clearly see those levels when you go to my web site at: _______________________ Just click on the "Product Packages" link.

Each package represents a different level of potential income and investment, as well as, each package represents different travel benefits. We can get into further discussion about the logistics of this opportunity during our follow-up call.

It is imperative that you first view the initial information and go through the gathering information process so you will understand our entire marketing system and how it will work for you.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.

To Your Success,

#30 Ways To Invest In Your Coastal Business

When most people start a business, the smart ones do NOT use their own money. If they did, they would be taking it from their checking account, savings account, cookie jar, or out from under their mattress.

But most people, when they start a business, use someone else's money. That's what we do when we use our credit card, home equity line of credit, or borrow the funds from a friend. It should be no different with joining Coastal Vacations.

There is an important thing to remember . . . and this is always a strong motivation ... the cost involved in starting a business is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!

So let's look at some of the ways that people can get started with little or no money of their own.

Be sure and read all 30 ideas. There is going to be one that will help you.

  1. Sign-Up with your Credit Card.
    That is how many get started but if you don't have a card, you'll have to apply for and receive the card first! This is the best option because it gives you 30 days to recoup your investment and you will immediately be able to conduct your business, receive your travel & vacation package & your sign-up bonuses. Here are some choices of credit card companies:

    http://www.100best-credit-cards.com/
    http://www.catalog.com/search/credit+cards
    http://www.creditcardsmatter.com/


  2. Obtain a loan on your 401K.
    These loans are great if they're an option for you because there are no turndowns or penalties. The interest rate is 5%...and you're paying that interest to yourself!

  3. Financing is available however it is subject to a 'Credit Check.' The loan company is called AG Finance and they give small personal loans to people for businesses or home renovations. Several people have gone thru them for Coastal and they have been approved for $1320 (level one travel package)

    It's free to submit your application. Please visit their website for detailed information:
    http://www.agfinance.com/

    AG Finance has many offices all over the US . Each customer puts in their zip code and the nearest location is pulled up. It takes a few minutes, online or over the phone, to complete the application and the customer finds out within 24 hours if they were approved for the $1320 loan. If so they will receive a check in the mail within 2-3 days. Payback varies from customer to customer because it's determined by their credit score.

    Here are a few more sources. We suggest that you actually apply for all of them and if you get approved for them all, just pick ONE to get your financing from. It costs you nothing to apply for them.

    You can reach all of them at 800-555-1212 or search for them on the web.
  4. Household Finance: https://www.hfc.com/learn/HomeNewUser.jst
  5. American General: https://loans.agfcredit.com/Iaps/Html/AGHome.html
  6. Citi Financial: http://www.wamu.com/home.htm
  7. Beneficial: https://secure.citifinancial.com/loanapp/gettingstarted.php
  8. (For Canadians) http://www.citifinancial.ca/eng/emain.html . And some other ideas / strategies
  9. Obtain a short term loan from a friend or family member. Borrow $50 from 26 people. Borrow $100 from 13 People.
  10. Obtain a home equity loan.
  11. Increase an existing equity line.
  12. Sell a car you don't use
  13. Have a Rummage Sale
  14. Sell off your old CD/DVD collection to the pawn shop
  15. Find two or three people or businesses to buy and share the package together.
  16. Try: www.eloan.com
  17. Get a side job, and work it hard for one month, save all the money. One month is not that big a deal of a sacrifice if you really see what we have here with Coastal!
  18. Crack open your IRA or CD Account Early.
  19. Borrow against your future tax return.
  20. Sell a farm animal or farm implement you do not use or need.
  21. Refinance the House on a different plan and take some cash out.
  22. Find the fat in your budget and put that money aside until you have enough to start.
  23. Use your income tax return.
  24. Stock Dividends.
  25. Borrow from Life Insurance policy.
  26. Sell your timeshare. With this package, you will no longer need it. We have access to timeshare properties in our package.
  27. Get a title loan on your vehicle, boat or camper.
  28. The following link is a way for Canadians to obtain a credit card that offers awesome benefits:
    http://www.banking.pcfinancial.ca
  29. Focus on how to become an entrepreneur full time to raise the funds to start your business. What can you sell around you or create to sell to raise the funds! We have a member who sold gourmet dog biscuits!
  30. Sell items on Ebay!
Bottom line is... IF YOU ARE SERIOUS AND HAVE DESIRE - You will come up with a solution somehow, even one that is not in this list. I said I didn't have the money when I was prospected, but I found it. I am 10 times over glad I did!

To Your Success,




##No Thanks - Not Interested / Missed Opportunity

Hello (Prospect's Name),

I appreciate your response. This opportunity may not be for you, however, I would just like to make sure you understand that you can make nothing less than $1000 to $9705 on each transaction by simply directing people to the information. Of course, there is also the ability to make up to $19,410.00 training someone to do what you do. Finally, you can save an unbelievable amount of money vacationing and enjoy the time freedom to be able to do so. Many individuals in Coastal are making one sale per week. At the lowest entry level in this business, that means an additional $52,000.00 annually. The trainer pay compensation can triple that income.

You indicated that you have looked over the information, so I'm sure you've already been to my web site and viewed that information. My marketing system includes letters that are sent on my behalf. You will continue to get more information to consider. It costs nothing to fully investigate this business and I would encourage you to continue through the process before making a final decision.

Remember, there is nothing more expensive than a missed opportunity.

I wish you much success in all your endeavors.

To Your Success,



##No Thanks - Investment Too High / Missed Opportunity

Hello (Prospect's Name),

Thank you very much for your email! I appreciate your candor. I realize that the investment amount is a lot. When I was considering Coastal, I finally decided that even if I failed miserably at the business, I would have a business tax write-off at the very least and no matter what, I would have the lifetime vacation membership with all those vacations!

Either way, I had something to show for my money. And, after learning that my Director had made $X,XXX her first month and her Director had made over $XXX that year, I decided I really had to take a good look at what they were doing!

One of the things that made me finally decide to go for it was something my director said to me. She said, "There are a lot of people out there willing to spend $4,000.00 on one cruise or vacation. Why wouldn't they want to spend the same amount of money on the unlimited cruises and hundreds of vacations that they receive in the package?"

That made sense to me, so I waited for my tax return and used that to invest. There are many different ways that people have used to get started without actually using their own money.

This opportunity may not be for you, however, I would just like to make sure you understand that you can make nothing less than $1000 to $9705 on each transaction by simply directing people to the information. Of course, there is also the ability to make up to $19,410.00 training someone to do what you do.

Yes, the investment is large, but not when you compare it to the financial gain. The return on investment far outweighs the initial one-time investment.

Remember, there is nothing more expensive than a missed opportunity.

If you're still interested, I can send you an email entitled "30 Ways To Get Started" and you may see an idea on there that will work for you, or it may just spark an idea that isn't on the list.

Either way, if you decide at any time in the future that you would like more information, have any questions, or you want to get started, just shoot me an email or give me a call and I will be happy to help any way I can.

Let me know if you would like me to send you the "30 Ways To Get Started" email, and I will get that off to you.

Have a great day!

To Your Success,



#BBB Question

Why Is Coastal Vacations Not Listed With The BBB?

Coastal Vacations is an association, not a company. We are governed by a Board of Directors who ensure our product and the vendors that participate, meet our very high standards.

Each individual Coastal business owner can list their business with the BBB, if they choose. For that reason, you could see bad reports specific to an individual business owner, but you would be hard pressed to find a complaint about our product.

I am sure you are concerned with the stability issue. Perhaps this will help:

Coastal is NOT a company but an ASSOCIATION of professionals all around the world who promote travel, affluence, and well-being. There is no head office, no corporate entity, or legal department. They have no real responsibility other than (led by the B.O.D.) making sure the packages continue to get better and for leading the marketing efforts of the field.

The reason why we can earn such high profits of $1,000-$9,705 per sale is because there is no company in place that requires high overhead. If this was the case, then our commissions (not profits) would be considerably lower (as an entrepreneur looking at this business model, the fact that we are an association IS A PLUS!) Coastal Vacations has been around for over 12 years.

N.B. Management - Although they have been shipping packages for 25 years, they are still just a fulfillment center that could easily be replaced by another. They ship packages for many other travel and resort companies.

The Package - This is where your main concern should lay! Stability rests with the 60+ vendors who fulfill the contents of the package. Most are licensed, bonded, and even traded on the stock market. Using such a large number of companies also allows for greater stability, since if one failed, it could easily be replaced rather than depending on just one company for everything.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. I would be happy to help.

To Your Success,
