Payton Welch in one of his recent YouTube ads for Inbound Closer says: “Look, you’ve got a bunch of douchebags in Lambos telling you it’s easy to start an online business. But actually it’s not. Those guys are actually full of you know what. It’s not hard to rent a Lambo.” Ok, I definitely like what he’s saying so far. Now where does it go from here? Let’s go through this ad together, scroll down for my full no nonsense Inbound Closer review.
“Now let me ask you this,” Payton adds, “if all these internet gurus are lying to you about their cars, what else do you think they might be hiding from you? I’ll tell you. It doesn’t matter whether it’s dropshipping, affiliate marketing, online courses, starting an agency, consulting, MLM, freelancing, or anything else you’ve heard about online. No matter how you cut it, all that stuff is hard.” The simple fact of the matter is that you’ll have to grind hard, long days, for at least 2 years to see success in any of those business models.
Why? Because unlike what the gurus will tell ya upfront. The learning curve is pretty steep. There’s lots of new skills you’ll have to try and acquire in a short time. But it’s not your fault if you haven’t had the breakthrough yet according to him. And lucky for you, Payton’s about to show you how 1,621 students have replaced their 9-5 income in only 21 days. It involves a high-demand skill that puts you in the middle of an astounding 129 billion dollar industry.
This industry is full of wealthy business owners who are looking to pay you fat commissions of $980 or more. And all you need is a phone and Payton’s 6 page PDF. If it isn’t clear enough already, Payton is talking about coaching you to be a high ticket closer (sales guy) for other guru programs. You know the ones that sell programs like his, do seminars, or masterminds for thousands of bucks. Every time you close someone, you’ll get a fat commission. And for the most part, he’s telling the truth.
Sure, it is in high demand. Sure, you can make good money. Sure, it can happen fast. Sure, you can ignore all the headache of starting your online business. But just like all the other guru’s out there, Payton does make it sound a bit easier than it is. He’s painting you the picture of the best case scenario. The scenario where nothing goes wrong. In his pitch he say’s you’ll close 40% of calls. Realistically it’s more like 15%. He says you can take these calls whenever you want, but actually that is up to whoever you’re selling for. They’re your new boss.
He also says that most of these higher ticket programs are $9800 bucks. But in reality it’s closer to 3k. He also doesn’t give you a heads up about all the no-shows, refunds, chargebacks, and pay plans bailing on ya. And he especially doesn’t mention the days you’ll have with slow leads. So to be honest, the reality is gonna look a lot different than what you were just pitched. You may not hit 30k on part time hours as Payton implies. But it’s not to say it’s not possible. I’m sure with the right expert and offer and stroke of luck, it could maybe happen.
When it comes to the price, it’s affordable. Payton and Taylor Welch (traffic and funnels) sell Inbound Closer Accelerator for just $97 one time. They also offer a lifetime money back guarantee. My best bet is that this is only the start and they will try to get more money out of you with upsells down the road. I don’t have an issue with them, my only thing is I would’ve liked to see more transparency with the downsides of this opportunity to manage expectations. Overall it’s a solid opportunity and basically risk free.
