Disadvantages: First 2 sales go to your director to insure you get trained properly
Coastal Wealth Builders CWB: Sub-group within the Coastal Vacation Travel Business Opportunity using there own marketing methods and websites. About 220 people google search this company every month. You could technically add these to the number of people that search Coastal since that is what they sell. They pretty much follow the official marketing systems in place and do a nice job training their people. Most of them use both the official system and pay extra for additional CWB specific sites.
Decide Freedom International DFI: Sub-group within Coastal Vacation using there own marketing methods and websites. About 110 people google search this company every month. You could technically add these to the number of people that search Coastal since that is what they sell. They utilize some of the official marketing systems in place. They highly promote training by Dani Johnson who is an incredible trainer in network marketing (I suggest hearing her at least once in your life also). However, I would not recommend sending your potential Coastal Members to a Dani event UNTIL you have brought them in-as I have come into contact with a few directors who have lost their potential team members to other coastal directors at such events.
Platinum 1 Destinations P1D – Coastal Synergy Group: Opened for business Jan 08. As of the end of 2009 about 5,000 people google search this company every month. Profit margins up to $7500. To be honest – in my research of this group I encountered dozens of inactive links to their sites which inhibited my research. I do know that as the synergy group they were another sub group in Coastal Vacations and grew their team greatly. In fact the author here was actually a synergy member in 2005 when they were strictly Coastal – but opted to go with the official Board of Director approved sites and training. The leadership of the synergy group decided to create an entirely new system in 2008 totally separate from Coastal Travel Business Opportunity. Although synergy members were grandfathered into this new system, unfortunately, I have come across many of the members who bought into the synergy group and had no access to Coastal Official Board of Director Approved training were left stranded and searching for ways to work their businesses or forced to work a system they didn’t buy into. I am aware that nearly all of the successful P1D synergy group travel agents were former members of the Coastal Vacation Synergy Group.
Travel Business Opportunity Conclusion:
Coastal Vacations has been around 14 years, never changed their pay plan, have the highest available profit margins to $9705 per sale. They also govern themselves with a board of directors but maintain individual responsibility by staying an association of several hundred thousand memberships. They have a few notable sub-groups within Coastal such as DFI and CWB. Sub-groups have advantages and disadvantages(a disadvantage is like what happened with the synergy group). Obviously more people search Coastal Vacations than all other travel based opportunities any where on the net. The Coastal Board of Directors also has a cookie cutter set up with complete websites, 800 tele-services, auto responders, movies, lead generating methods, approved lead vendors etc… The board of directors has a beautiful system in place negating any need for extra groups and whatever costs/risks associated with them. If you work this business according to the fully approved systems in place then you will see that CoastalPaysYou extremely well. In fact CoastalPaysYou so well that many people have seen fit to quit their day jobs after getting involved in this company.

Global Resorts Network GRN has been around 2 years, never changed their pay plan, have profit margins from $500 to $1000 per sale. Very nice company, good product if marketing only to an end user, limited markets (only for end users). It is nice that you make an additional $500 -$1000 commission on every sale that a personally sponsored rep makes but that means that without that pay plan you could be making $1000-$2000 on each sale. If you would like to contact a GRN rep contact me and I can put you in touch with a GRN rep who is a 7 figure earner in the travel industry.
Platinum 1 Destinations P1D has been around a couple years now and has very nice profit levels. It is hard to tell their performance so far though since nearly all of their success stories are from people who were in coastal vacations just a few months ago. Although new company start ups come and go by the dozens every year they have a start. We will see where their future lies.
