Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I no sooner got my $25.00 "KIT" in the (I refused to pay the $15.00 shipping so they waived it) and began getting sales calls to upgrade my membership to GOLD Membership for $399.00. Each time I refused, they kept dropping the price. My "COACH" tried to sell me a website for $750.00. The FREE website you get for the $25.00 is useless and only offers 30 items which you need a GIFT CARD to order anything. A $10.00 gift card would cost me $3 to buy and to add insult to injury the $10.00 discount would come out of MY PROFIT!!..SO with each sale I would loose $13.00 right off the bat. When I "busted" the coach and told her I knew what she was up to--A high pressure sales person disguised as a "coach"--MAN--she got pissed!!!!
I have been calling my coach every day for 2 weeks demanding she drop the price of the website. I got her down from $750.00 TO $265.00. There is a special account with $200 in it that you get which is YOUR OWN MONEY taken from the website fee. They act like they are giving you $200 of their money.
Oh yeah--I got the Gold Membership for $99.00---down from $399.

If you really want to do this---YOU tell them what your willing to pay---trust me--no offer will be refused!!!
I have taken up so much of my coaches time--she prays for the day my 60 days is up. I pretty sure you get a coach for 60 days because thats the "charge back" period where the "coach" can be charged back if you cancell. After 60 days--she has her commission and she could care less about you anymore.

I still may do it--I am going to continue to get the price down...if they meet my offer...I may sign up...but you guys are correct..the whole way this thing is set up is a BIG SCAM to get membership and website money.

Hell--I have all the catalogs--I'll build my own webiste and sell this crap. There are plenty of "build your own websites" that are free.
