Much like traditional brick and mortar businesses, home-based business owners face the big task of getting to profitability before the capital runs out. With work-at-home entrepreneurs, it can be even more challenging due to limited budgets and the need to learn a large number of new skills very quickly.

“I knew how great Coastal was but had the fear must people have, selling to people. When I found the Sale Center it was match made in heaven!” commented Kiwy Garcia.

The Coastal Vacations Club Sales Center (CVCSC) helps new entrepreneurs by handling all the selling and training activities of the new business. The new work from home entrepreneur just needs to market and nothing else. The highly trained sales professional at the coastal call center do all the selling for the new entrepreneur.

“It was a great relief to know that I didn’t have to cold people all day long and then try to convince them to join me. I had tried a traditional MLM company before and I hated that part of it,” said Kiwy. The CVCSC does 90% to 95% of the work for the new entrepreneur. The primary responsibility of the entrepreneur is to create leads that will call the sales center. Post cards, pay-per-click advertising, newspaper classified ads, voice broadcast, leads and many other methods can be used. Comprehensive training is provided to help everyone get off to a good start. Coastal Vacations Club is an 11-year-old association of entrepreneurs who sell wholesale vacation packages. Directors earn $1000 - $9,705 per transaction.

The packages include trips and accommodations from major companies in the travel industry, including: Carnival Cruise, Marriott, Alamo, Access, and many more. The Coastal Vacations Club Sales Center was launched in February 2005 and opened up its doors to other Coastal Directors like Kiwy Garcia and his team in April 2005.

Distributed Consumer Rating Company RateItAll Secures Funding

Distributed Consumer Rating Company RateItAll Secures Funding

Next generation consumer rating company RateItAll, Inc. - powered by widgets, apps, and APIs - secures funding from top Silicon Valley angels and seed funds.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2008

RateItAll, a distributed consumer rating web application that allows users to find, share and solicit opinions on any topic, has announced that it has secured an undisclosed amount of funding from a number of top Silicon Valley angel investors and seed funds. Investors include Accelerator Ventures, JAIC America, Pacific I&T Ventures, and Eric Di Benedetto. The primary use of funds will be to improve the site's UI and to continue to execute its distributed rating model, leveraging widgets, applications, and APIs.

"The consumer rating landscape is hopelessly fragmented," says RateItAll CEO and co-founder Lawrence Coburn. "Consumers shouldn't have to visit multiple sites with multiple logins to find and share opinions on the things that they are passionate about."

By making its service available anywhere via applications on popular social networks, embeddable read / write widgets, and its APIs, RateItAll plans to free up its consumer review content and functionality so that it can easily be added to any website.

"Working with minimal resources, RateItAll has already achieved significant traction both in terms of destination site traffic and ratings engagement," says Eric Di Benedetto. "I look forward to seeing what they can do with some funding."

In addition to being able to rate and review virtually anything, visitors to RateItAll. com may also create and manage their own ratings channels (e. g. Best Tech Blog). Revenue is shared with content contributors via the Google AdSense API.

"I find the economics behind RateItAll's distinctive brand of user generated content very compelling," says Accelerator Ventures' Managing Director Alexander Lloyd. "Not only are users posting monetizable reviews, they are also creating the ratings categories themselves."

There were approximately 1M visits to RateItAll. com in May, and the number of ratings posted per month has grown by approximately 1000% since February.

About RateItAll
Based in San Francisco, RateItAll is a distributed consumer rating community where visitors can find and share opinions on virtually any topic. All of the site's content is available for syndication via widgets, and RateItAll members share in the advertising revenue associated with their reviews. RateItAll's mission is to power the distributed exchange of the world's opinions.

Discover Scenic, Hip Iceland Travelers Want to Experience Viking Country to Share Their Story First

Discover Scenic, Hip Iceland Travelers Want to Experience Viking Country to Share Their Story First

Los Angeles (PRWEB) August 18, 2005

How many people do you know have been to Iceland? For the seasoned traveler who has already “been there and done that” all over the world, Iceland offers globetrotters an off the radar appeal, according to the experts at ALL-TRAVEL. com, the leading provider of personalized travel services to the greater Los Angeles area.

“Since travel is as much about the bragging rights as it is the experience, everyone wants to be the first in their group to go somewhere no one else has been,” explained Eric Maryanov, president of ALL-TRAVEL. com. “In this fast-paced, ever-shrinking world, this can often be a challenge. So these days, travelers are heading off to Iceland.”

Whether itÂ’s the casual, outdoorsy appeal of soft adventure, the scenic wonders of a country molded by centuries-old volcanoes and glaciers, or a sense of safety far away from terrorist activity, curiosity about the Viking-land has piqued in a big way. This is not an over-the-top luxury vacation, nor a Third World country roughing it experience. Iceland is part of Europe and is todayÂ’s latest travel treasure to be discovered, said Maryanov.

Minimally marketed without commercialized chain hotels and American retailers, Iceland sits on the edge of the Arctic Circle. It is the least populated country in Europe, and only recently became noticed as a destination in its own right. Although a long way to travel and with only one airline to get there, Iceland is a fascinating place that is quickly gaining momentum among travelers looking for a unique, new adventure.

With the unexpectedly cosmopolitan capital city of Reykjavik, where most Icelanders live, and its similar yet smaller sister city of Akureyri, Iceland offers visitors stylish shops and restaurants, and a hip nightlife and bar scene. Reykjavik also boasts cinemas, museums and galleries, an opera, symphony orchestra and dance company.

Then there’s the scenic beauty of this welcoming country, said Maryanov, “served to travelers by the glacier-full.” Sitting atop one of the world’s most volcanically active hotspots, Iceland is the combination of water and ice, wind and fire. Its organically bubbling hot springs, rugged coastal inlets, and dormant lava and ash deserts headline the country as a main attraction for wilderness lovers of all ages. Hiking, camping, whale-watching, snowmobiling and more are all possible in the many national parks throughout Iceland.

Perhaps the largest tourist attraction of Iceland, outside of the city-life of Reykjavik, is the picturesque Lake Mývatn. Surrounded by volcanic activity and home to numerous species of duck and waterfowl, the waterfalls and gorges, glaciers and fjords present outdoor and photo opportunities galore. For serious adventurers, the barren interior of Iceland is an exciting excursion. Although Maryanov advises travelers to go with an experienced guide who is familiar with the unique personality of the terrain.

“Get going because before you realize it, travelers you know will be rushing to become the first on the block to visit this Artic outpost and win bragging rights,” said Maryanov. “They’ll also have the photos to prove it.”
