The Truth About Sales Strategies in the Timeshare Exit Marketplace | Part 2

The Truth About Sales Strategies in the Timeshare Exit Marketplace | Part 2

As we continue the discussion about the sales practices of the timeshare exit marketplace, keep in mind that not all products and services here are bad. Often times, the narrative surrounding companies like ours is negative, resulting in a skewed perception. So we thought now was a good time to remind you that there are businesses out there that genuinely care about your vacational bliss. While it is rather disappointing to acknowledge the deceitful tactics many individuals choose to partake in, it’s also quite refreshing to know that a little research will go a long way. There are a multitude of ways fraudulent companies lie to fractional owners. But understanding what’s actually true will help you make intelligent, confident decisions regarding your timeshare. 

As a vacation owner of an expensive property, you have to realize that there is all kinds of public misinformation about the purchase. It’s very difficult to come across accurate data or unbiased articles and reviews. Even when you’re lied to, there’s always some online user willing to back up the deception. In most cases, they’re compensated or rewarded for their involvement. If you own a weekly interval on a perpetual term, finding a resource that’s only interesting in outlining the facts should be a priority of yours. 

By discussing the trickery of the timeshare exit marketplace, we hope it allows you to avoid pitfalls and trust our advice. At the end of the day, we’re not interested in harassing you to cancel your agreement. We’d rather guide you towards an ideal and reasonable solution. In the meantime, here are some additional ways that illegitimate cancellation companies mislead potential customers.

The Sales Pitch Never Actually Scratches the Itch.

Similar to the acquisition strategies of destination resorts, the timeshare exit marketplace views the initial sale as the most important step of the transaction. Once you’ve proceeded with an agreement, they now have all the leverage. Whether you’re attempting to resell the property or cancel the mortgage, the downpayment is never cheap. Owners that commit to an exit strategy usually stick with it for too long because the initial investment forces them to remain hopeful. While it may seem like an ignorant thing to do, any uninformed owner would do the same thing. Especially when promises are made during the sale.

1. Unexpected Outcomes and Charges Add up.

The problem is, every level of assurance given during the pitch typically leads into another sales opportunity that surfaces when things don’t pan out. We recently published a news article that explained how phony resellers in the timeshare exit marketplace claim to have eager buyers, but they disappear before the sale goes through. This gives the resale company an opportunity to sell advertising and other add ons to “improve results.” Thousands of dollars can be collected before the timeshare owner even realizes that selling the property was a bad idea. All of which transpired because they were led to believe willing buyers were readily available. 

A similar approach is often used by fraudulent companies claiming they can help owners legally get rid of agreements. Once a commitment has been made, they continue asking paying customers for more time and money in order to work with the resort. Sometimes, they even throw in unexpected complications to collect even more. Since the cancellation process is known to take a while to conclude, scam artists are able to invoice desperate owners for a long time before abruptly abandoning them by abolishing the business or filing for bankruptcy.

2. Service Limitations Are Rarely Disclosed.

We believe it’s safe to say that none of the fractional owners taken advantage of by scams in the timeshare exit marketplace saw it coming. They counted on the company selling them relief to come through. Unfortunately, most services in this realm will tell you anything to get the ball rolling, we call this the “hope” pitch. Another way they victimize fractional owners to their benefit is avoiding full disclosure. For example, canceling a timeshare agreement doesn’t always eliminate the financial responsibility you have to a bank. Many relief programs don’t advertise this, but they can’t do anything with monetary amounts that are financed through a third party. 

Unless the timeshare loan is borrowed through timeshare affiliates or the resort itself, most of these operations aren’t properly equipped to terminate an agreement. Timeshare owners rarely think to ask if third party financed amounts are covered. Any level of understanding here would save them from making an ill-advised decision. When disclosure isn’t requested, it’s very easy for crafty businesses to collect payments from owners then protect themselves by blaming the resort or a third party for a failed cancelation.

3. Worthless Solutions Waste Time and Money.

Recently, a growing number of companies in the timeshare exit marketplace have marketed an ability to overcome third party loans. Even though they say they can get people’s money back, there’s no way that guarantees like these can be made. Unless they assess the contract and loan itself, there’s no way of knowing what can transpire. These types of services are simply charging people to contact the bank in an attempt to persuade them that the timeshare expense wasn’t authorized or agreed to. If the timeshare responds to the claim with proof of your signed contract, then the dispute will be denied.

If you’ve ever filed a complaint like this with your bank, then you know that it can sometimes take a few months to conclude. There’s no telling what a greedy cancellation ploy will charge you for in the meantime. The evolution of these “businesses” usually derive from those that failed in the past. Like we mentioned before, our industry is known to recycle customers with new offers that cater to previous disappointments. This is just another example. The point is, the sales pitch can be extremely deceiving. They know exactly what you want and need to hear.  If you don’t know what to ask and you’re uneducated on the purchase, it’s best to wait until you’re better informed before buying in.

Random charges like closing costs, transfer fees, and legal expenses are often used to increase the total amount due at any given time. No matter how much reassurance is given, regarding the maximum price you’ll pay, a lack of evidence should compel you to walk away. Listening to, getting excited about, and buying into a sales pitch will only get you into trouble. No matter how compelling the presentation is, you have to be able to look at the facts. If they’re unwilling to guarantee a specific outcome in writing, then nothing about the service should produce any type of optimism.

Qualification Shortcomings Lead to Disappointment. 

For anyone helping fractional owners escape perpetual contracts, we believe the single most important step is qualifying them for the service. Far too many businesses in the timeshare exit marketplace predicate their success on conversion rates. In other words, their objective is to acquire as many paying customers as they can, whether they can help them or not. This is extremely short-sighted and one of the main reasons why the reputation of the industry has been consistently bad. It’s extremely irresponsible for companies to collect payments before assessing the situation.

1. What Some Fractional Owners Need to Hear.

Often times, timeshare owners don’t even know the resort has them under multiple contracts with differing agreements. During our qualification process, we frequently stumble across additional financed amounts or credit lines that the buyer had never seen before. Some owners simply have no basis for cancellation while others could easily work things out with the resort. If there is only a year or two left on a right-to-use contract, waiting it out might be more ideal. When there is a reasonable offer on the table, most people just need to hear “take it” from a trustworthy source. Unfortunately, it’s more convenient for them to pay someone to tell them what they want to hear.

deceiving-sales-practices-leave-consumers-trusting-false-information-while-keeping-blind-eye-to-timeshare-scams-in-exit-marketplace

Companies that lead people to assume their process is the best option – when it’s not – are doing the timeshare exit marketplace a huge disservice. People deserve full disclosure. If fractional owners are not prepared or equipped to handle backlash or further consequence from the resort, then they have no business paying to get out of the agreement. Despite high failure rates, many exit services just don’t care. They’re in business because they’ve been able to consistently persuade desperate people.

2. Eventual Costs Are Rarely Presented.

Selling hope pitches or failed promises, just like the timeshare, convinces unhappy buyers that they need to act now. Even if it doesn’t work out, they still get paid. Unethical companies in the timeshare exit marketplace know they can charge more when additional contracts or credit lines are found. Instead of allocating everything on the front end and presenting an accurate proposal, they slowly send invoices and rarely follow through. The more complicated a timeshare owner’s situation is, the easier it is for the exit company to cash in without fully completing the job. This generally leaves owners worse off than they were before.

For this reason, consumers should never be drawn to price in the timeshare exit marketplace. Unless you’re able to break down the entirety of your agreement before shopping around, it’s naive to assume anyone will give you an accurate quote. This is why we take pride in offering free consultations before the details of our service are even presented. Vacation owners deserve a chance to see the reality of their situation so they know what it’s going to take to get out of it. While we believe this to be extremely valuable, some owners still allow themselves to be sold by appealing offers. Sadly, many of them return to VOC with even more debt.

What to Ask, Why Compare and How to Know?

When looking for a way to get rid of a timeshare, your first question should never be “what is the cost?” It should be “what is your process, how does it work and what can I realistically expect as a successful outcome?” Remember, low prices are always deceiving. This is why it’s important to participate in as many interviews as possible. Be prepared to hear “today only deals” and don’t let incentivized deals influence your decision. In most cases, you’ll be able to tell who’s really interested in helping you based on the interaction. A lack of professionalism or an aggressive nature should be a good preview of what’s to come.

Either way, no matter how good the sales pitch is, you have to take the time to research the business itself. On the surface, many scams do a great job with legitimacy – but in reality, it’s all a mirage. Those willing to investigate leadership, employee reviews, past partnerships and the validity of the business as a whole are usually glad they did so. Nearly every scam could have been avoided with a little effort.

At VOC, we’ve committed to doing some of the legwork for you. While the reputation of the timeshare exit marketplace may make it difficult to trust our intentions, we want you to know we care. At the end of the day, our goal isn’t to acquire as many customers as we can and mislead them along the way. We’re only interested in helping struggling vacation owners find a resolution they can hang their hat on.

The Truth About Sales Practices in the Timeshare Exit Industry | Part 1

The Truth About Sales Practices in the Timeshare Exit Industry | Part 1

The timeshare exit industry is interesting to say the least. While hundreds of thousands of people have benefitted from their ability to legally cancel a timeshare agreement, just as many have been taken advantage of. Far too many cancellation programs are in business for the wrong reasons and they’re using the exact same sales practices that caused the buyer to seek relief in the first place. Unfortunately, this is a continuous cycle within the marketplace. Whether it’s the original purchase, resale or termination, a majority of consumers have a hard time knowing what’s real and what’s a scam. We know this because we talked to dozens every day.

A sense of confusion inevitably clouds the judgement of fractional owners during the decision-making process. Genuine companies like ours are often bucketed with scams because of the lies vacation owners have been told in the past. Broken promises, misleading information and greed tend to create skepticism that’s hard to break. So in order to show unhappy timeshare owners that we’re not interested in scheming them, selling their data or taking their money, we have to be willing to break down the reality of the sales practices in the timeshare exit industry. Hopefully this helps readers see that we understand what they’re up against and care about their burden.

The Truth Behind Guaranteeing Credit During an Exit.

When it comes to escaping a perpetual timeshare agreement, one must understand that they’re going to receive some backlash from the resort. Our clients have been known to receive threats from the resort and it’s sales teams that collect hefty commissions off of the deal. For the most part, these are simply scare tactics, but you have to understand that no company in the timeshare exit industry can guarantee your credit when you’re at odds with the resort. In the end, the timeshare is the only party that’s able to execute this request.

blue-voc-suit-serious-middle-aged-man-looking-at-camera-with-stern-look-regarding-exiting-timeshare-company-with-resort

Because buyers sign a contract and a promissory note that states they’re obligated to pay for the weekly interval, the resort is going to do everything in its power to keep you under that contract. Unless you’re able to prove that you were misled during the sales presentation, you have no leverage. When a sales rep in the timeshare exit industry makes this guarantee, they better be able to provide evidence. In reality, they’re just trying to persuade you to commit to them, just as you did with the timeshare. 

Vague claims that seem too good to be true should raise red flags. Especially if you’ve already been told one thing by the resort and something else transpired. Learn your lesson here and realize that a number of operations in the timeshare exit industry only want your money. They do everything in their power to gain your trust while protecting themselves from your inconvenience. Even if you’re desperate, looking into guarantees will save you a lot of heartache and further regret.

Credit Repair in the Timeshare Exit Industry.

Some exit agencies will even go as far as partnering with sketchy credit repair services to strengthen their guarantees. But the people managing a handful of these operations are usually connected to the ploy. Tradebloc is an organization worth keeping an eye on in this regard. While their process is quite vague, we do know that they only accept clients from referral sources in order to avoid a transactional relationship with the client. They do a very good job of protecting themselves from potential legal issues while claiming they have the ability to block creditors from reporting.

The CEO, Tim Clark, is proudly listed as “the credit repair industry’s number one money earner.” On the company’s website, he describes Tradebloc as “unique and unprecedented.” If you take the time to analyze their about page, you’ll find that there is a lot of bragging and zero results. Boasting about acquiring “71 corporate clients and generating nearly 1000 new credit repair clients each month” really only says they’re good at sales. Ironically, there are no customer reviews or any type of organization support listed online.

Further research shows that people have actually gone to jail in the past for making eerily similar claims. All they were doing was filing false police reports that claim identities were stolen and reporting it to credit bureaus to block credit reports. This is not legal and unknowingly ties the timeshare owner to the illegal activity. Fractional owners in search of the best timeshare exit option tell us their credit has been guaranteed by one of our competitors all the time. But they’re never able to tell us exactly how something like this will take place.

Far too many timeshare owners buy into possibilities. This form of desperate optimism is what we refer to as “industry hope.” Agreeing to verbal promises and not asking the right questions in order to garner an accurate understanding of the product is what landed the owner in the unwanted timeshare to begin with. Buyers have to learn as much as they can about the promises made. While it’s yet to be proven that Tradebloc is engaging in illegal activity, the operation does raise quite a few questions. Vague responses that vary from one representative to the next and zero transparency on how the process works should be concerning. 

The simple fact they announced that they’ve “teamed up with the number one travel fulfillment company in the world to give its members the world’s best, authentic, discounted travel,” tells us they’re prepared to target current customers with new offers down the road. When it comes to unethical sales practices in the timeshare exit industry, this is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Avoiding relationships and creating obscure partnerships screams dubious activity

Selling Guarantees Doesn’t Mean a Timeshare Exit is Certain.

While exiting a timeshare contract and repairing your credit may appeal to you, most disgruntled buyers first turn to resale platforms for relief. Followed by leasing, this is usually seen as the most viable and promising option when the timeshare just isn’t working out. Unfortunately, many owners don’t know that the possibility of actually finding a buyer is slim to none. There just isn’t a resale market for timeshares and there never has been. Unless you hold the keys to a week that’s in high demand, it’s a pipedream.

If you happen to be told that a reseller has a buyer waiting to take the interval off your hands, you have to understand this is a common sales tactic in the resale realm of the timeshare exit industry. After the owner commits, they’re normally told the buyer backed out at the last minute. Since the owner already made a payment and has begun the exit process, they usually decide to wait it out. Resellers know how to play this game and continue leading owners on until they’re willing to lose money just to get rid of the timeshare. This allows them to profit tremendously while you suffer.

If you find yourself involved in a scam, then the outcome can be far worse. In these scenarios, timeshare owners are often misled for months. They believe a buyer exists and continue processing fees, closing costs, tax documents and more in hopes of offloading the contract. After the con artist is satisfied with the stolen amount or senses some tension, they disappear. This costs owners thousands of dollars while the same perpetual agreement remains in their name.

The Reality is, the Timeshare Exit Industry Breaks Promises.

In today’s society, people want to believe they can trust someone’s word. Especially when it comes to expensive business transactions. Sadly, a company’s ability to persuade consumers to hand over money for broken promises is becoming more of a norm. At VOC, we believe people should have a fighting chance when it comes to making large purchase decisions. At no point should they ever feel pressured, alone be misled. For many, financial hardship is right around the corner and they never would have made the purchase had they known the contract would hold them hostage.

Milking consumers for money as long as possible is a terrible strategy. Unfortunately, it’s the past and current state of the timeshare exit industry. In fact, it’s pretty much the approach of timeshare travel as a whole. Every day, more and more people are falling into a devastating financial pit that takes time to climb out of. Buying into credit or resale guarantees may seem advantageous, but it doesn’t mean it’s true. 

Hopefully this first installment will help you avoid setbacks and find a viable option that suits you best. While the sales practices of the timeshare exit industry have a long way to go, we want you to know that you can trust our word. The last thing we want is for you to remain in remorse.

Next week, we’ll expand on this even further by discussing a few more ways our industry persuades. Omitting information from timeshare owners and refusing to qualify interested parties only leads to disaster.

Timeshare Exit Options Pay Endorsers to Increase Team’s Credibility

Timeshare Exit Options Pay Endorsers to Increase Team’s Credibility

For most timeshare owners, finding a way to get out of their contract is a grueling experience. By the time buyers are ready to abandon the resort’s ship, it’s usually a challenge for them to know who to trust or where to turn. Although a good portion of timeshare exit options are all talk, the lack of consumer trust normally stems from the resort experience as a whole. When a prominent hotel chain has the nerve to swindle them, they’re almost certain others will.

It’s not easy for the average Joe to understand what buyers experience before they see that the expensive timeshare purchase as a mistake. Many spend thousands of dollars trying to make it worth it. Others even try to recoup some of their losses through resale opportunities with no prevail. For the most part, fractional owners are sold on possibilities, but often left feeling used or betrayed by the empty promises. It’s difficult for them to let it go.

By the time buyers realize that terminating a timeshare agreement is worth considering, their skepticism is at an all time high. But can you blame them? Aside from the fear of being taken advantage of, the sheer number of timeshare exit options alone can be quite overwhelming. Deciding which will be the most beneficial is something fractional owners are rarely able to do on their own.

hopeful-woman-battered-and-broken-looking-for-something-to-believe-in-that-will-help-her-get-rid-of-timeshare-debt-but-doesnt-understand-exit-options

You see, many relief agencies use the same sales tactics as timeshare sales teams do. They smother unhappy buyers with promises and empty guarantees in order to lead them into another vague, impulse decision. But some have discovered – even from the beginning – that consumers value products and services that are seen as a trusted commodity. When you think about it, the easiest way to get people to believe in a timeshare exit team is to pay famous people to endorse it. Specifically, celebrities that most timeshare owners know and appreciate.

How Paid Endorsements Aid Timeshare Exit Teams.

If you’ve taken the time to analyze your timeshare exit options, then it’s highly probable that you’ve come across Reed Hein and Associates’ Timeshare Exit Team. This operation has been spending excremental amounts of money on radio advertisements and weight-carrying public endorsements for a while now. Since they have a catchy company name, it’s easy for disgruntled buyers to remember where to turn when they feel relief is necessary. Especially if a financial guru gives the Exit Team a plug.

The Dave Ramsey Timeshare Exit Option

When timeshare owners find themselves in a financial pickle, one of the many places they turn to is Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. If you’ve ever taken one of Dave’s classes or purchased one of his products then you’ll know that he spends a lot of time warning people about timeshares. Although his message is geared more towards people looking to prevent or escape the burden of debt, he helps a multitude of people realize that the pursuit of an enjoyable timeshare experience is nothing more than chasing a mirage.

older-man-in-shirt-and-tie-looking-through-binoculars-in-desert-for-mirage-like-paid-endoresers-false-ads

Because of his straightforwardness towards fractional ownership, Reid Hein and Associates saw him as the perfect spokesman for their newest venture in the timeshare cancellation industry. For years now, they’ve been paying him to market their product and endorse their solutions. While he doesn’t specifically explain the Exit Team’s specifics, his influence leads masses of consumers to believe they’re by far the best option.

Since Mr. Ramsey talks a lot about why he doesn’t believe in vacation ownership, Timeshare Exit Team doesn’t exactly have to do much persuading. Because his recommendation carries authority, it also allows them to avoid explaining their services. But even Dave’s personal recommendation seems a little biased. “If you own one and feel stuck, Timeshare Exit Team provides a way out. They’ve been doing this for over 7 years, have successfully exited THOUSANDS of MY listeners, and are the ONLY exit company I recommend.” Either way, many timeshare owners pay the Exit Team, without asking any questions, because Dave said so.

The Timeshare Exit Team Steve Harvey Endorsement Ploy.

When it comes to Timeshare Exit Team, leveraging Financial Peace isn’t the only way they’ve been able to capture the owner’s attention. Steve Harvey has also been a long advocate for the Exit Team. Aside from his ability to influence minorities (specifically the African American community), Harvey has also been a staple as the host of Family Feud amongst other ventures. He’s commonly known as a well respected man that only endorses quality companies.

Reed and Hein’s decision to use both of these gentlemen was a great idea, but it doesn’t mean they’re the best in the business. Since our goal isn’t to bash our competition, we encourage you to shop the estimates you receive to ensure you’re getting the best deal. Just because a famous person says they’re trustworthy, it doesn’t mean all cases result in positive outcomes. If you take the time to read through reviews and complaints, it will tell you a lot about the actualities of the service. When endorsers are getting paid to praise, you can’t exactly expect them to shed light on the negative side of things.

Other Timeshare Exit Options Pay for Endorsements Too.

In the internet realm, you can find nearly anyone with a following that aligns with your agenda. Another influential person in today’s digital marketplace is a man by the name of Steve Sanchez. His radio show and podcast has been deemed, “Water-Cooler Talk on Steroids” and generally consists of strong Christian views for a conservative audience. His special appointment listening and viewing allows him to make listeners feel as though they’re apart of something and only fed the truth.

facebook-ad-from-the-steve-sanchez-show-where-he-claims-timeshare-exit-team-is-best-cancellation-option-for-his-radio-listeners

Since the Steve Sanchez Show has been around for nearly 30 years, he has plenty of influence. This is why Wesley Financial Group decided to take a page out of Reed Hein and Associates’ book and pay Sanchez to make a similar statement about their timeshare exit options. While it almost seems like cheating, it’s easy to understand why so many people buy in. His aggressive mentality motivates people to take action and Wesley Financial could surely use the boost.

Laura Ingraham Was Paid to Help Resort Release Recover.

Even the “most listened to woman in political talk radio” joined in on a kickback campaign. Resort Release, who has been known by multiple different aliases ended up recently paying Laura Ingraham for a personal recommendation. Like the other “celebrities” mentioned in this article, it’s highly unlikely Ingraham knows much about the timeshare exit option. But since she has thousands of followers and an in-demand voice, the relief operation couldn’t help themselves. This occurred just before their well-known bankruptcy filing in Florida in an attempt to escape multiple lawsuits filed against them by timeshare giants. We’ll call it one last gasp for air.

Choose Timeshare Exit Options Wisely.

Although paying influencers to market a product or service is becoming more common, consumers are starting to see through the noise. There’s a difference between endorsing something you like or use and something you’re paid to promote. While the strategy can be effective, it’ll be difficult to sustain if the service isn’t superior. As we’ve covered in other articles, the timeshare industry is riddled with people telling you what the best timeshare exit options are. Whether review websites are paid for leads or resorts pocket from kickbacks, doing your homework goes a long way.

At VOC, we believe in an authentic approach. We’re not in business to persuade people we’re the best, we’d rather show you. While it may be difficult to know who to use or where to turn when it comes time to exit your timeshare, try to eliminate the noise and make a decision that’s best for you. Anyone that needs to pay someone to be seen as a trusted commodity should be questioned extensively.

Are Timeshare Promotions More Appealing During the Holidays?

Are Timeshare Promotions More Appealing During the Holidays?

Americans shell out an awful lot of money during the holiday season. The increase in indulgence is fairly apparent. From Black Friday deals to Cyber Monday specials, nearly every product or service looks to take advantage of loose spending habits during this time of year. Whether consumers are looking for unique ways to stuff stockings or preparing to host family, the planning and shopping seems ceaseless. The distractions and temporary priorities give travel companies and resorts quite the opportunity to position timeshare promotions.

When you think about it, the preparation for the holiday season isn’t the only thing that occupies the minds of people this time of year. Parents have to adjust to their kids being home from school after getting used to their absence. Entertaining them and guests is a job in itself. Catching up with family in general can also be exhausting when you’re limited on time. Managing grocery lists, attending holiday parties and experiencing everything you can in the short span of the season can be quite a blur. But the joy that it brings most is well worth it.

People Want to Enjoy the Holiday Season in Style.

When Christmas is finally over and people start thinking about their New Year’s resolutions, they want to be able to look back at this time with satisfaction. Participating in things worth remembering is what life is all about. It’s why a good portion of our culture invests in holiday vacations this time of year. Since the excitement of the season remains constant, people enjoy adding to the experience by getting away. This helps them rejuvenate while creating lasting memories in new places with people they love.

Why Consumers Decide to Partake in Holiday Travel.

While some say the holiday season is kicked off by Halloween, not many people look to treat themselves to anything other than candy and costume creativity. The holidays are often seen as a time where family, friends, football and food come together. With that being said, the week before Thanksgiving is typically when the fun begins. Why? Because most people are off work while the kids are out of school for consecutive days. While Memorial and Labor Day weekends tend to be a blast, there isn’t much opportunity to maximize a vacation.

Although most holiday travel arrangements are strategically planned and budgeted for, many people end up trying to sneak a quick trip in during time off just to get away. Some are simply looking to escape the cold and enjoy the outdoors in a warmer climate. Others just want to fulfill their desire to travel somewhere nice for a change. If you’ve ever been forced to spend the holidays alone, then you can probably understand why escaping can be appealing.

At the same time, an eagerness to travel isn’t always the reasoning. Some people prefer to gift their loved ones with experiences instead of wrapping Christmas presents. This is especially true when most of the family is around. Although this is becoming more common with parents of spoiled children, taking people on vacation can be a great substitute for anyone during the holidays.

Why Are Sporadic Vacations Popular This Time of Year?

Like we already mentioned, an underwhelming holiday season can be a good reason to get up and go somewhere. Whether the kids are finally grown and gone or plans fall through, the inclination to go on vacation during this time is always there. Sometimes, the only thing holding people back is their ability to travel. But financial limitations don’t always keep people grounded.

When people just can’t seem to catch a break and experience a holiday season like the Griswolds, there’s always an opportunity to book a brief staycation with the family. While it may not be super exciting, it allows people to escape the reality of their situations so positive memories can presume. While it may not be the cheapest time of year to shop for a trip in Florida, hotels in colder weather climates with indoor pools usually suffice. It’s an easy decision for those looking to hit the reset button. 

Other reasons for sporadic vacations during the holidays normally revolve around last minute invites, unused airline miles or available trips that someone you know can’t make. There’s always an uncle or co-worker that has a last minute emergency or inconvenience that cancels their plans. This gives someone an opportunity to use their condo, guesthouse or timeshare for little to nothing – or even free. Not many people will turn down discounted travel packages. Which is why many consumers are intrigued by holiday timeshare promotions.

The Appeal of Timeshare Holiday Promotions is Real.

For most of us, we don’t have a cousin that’s a flight attendant. Many of us will never even be offered a gifted stay at a resort by someone we know. But it doesn’t mean we don’t wish for an ability to travel in style. During the holidays, companies selling vacation ownership are most certainly out and about persuading shoppers to indulge in their limited timeshare promotions. 

For most, it can be hard to ignore an appealing timeshare sales presentation or advertisement that’s seemingly cheap. Especially when we’re approached during a time when your spending ceiling is a lot higher than usual.

How People Come Across Timeshares During the Holidays.

If you don’t remember ever coming across a timeshare sale during the holiday season, chances are you’ve been too busy to notice. Nearly every mall is equipped with multiple off premise concierges (OPC’s) that promote enticing offers for destination travel. While most are staged signs atop a small podium with blank forms, some involve more engaging kiosks with aggressive salesman

If you’re waiting in line for Santa Claus, it may seem harmless to submit your information for more details. But once they know how to contact you, they’re relentless. Bass Pro Shops was recently in the news and took a lot of heat for Bluegreen Vacations’ pressure filled setup in their stores. From 2016-2018, nearly 15% of the global timeshares’s revenue came from the retailer. 

Every holiday season, thousands of consumers ignorantly hand over their contact information in exchange for a resilient sales pitch that never ends. Whether they’re attending an event, theme park or on vacation in a popular destination, these leaching operations persistently harass them until they give in or walk away

Making an impulse decision becomes easier when people are led to believe the timeshare package is a limited time offer. It’s the same reason why consumers will buy an extra big screen TVs just because it’s half off on Black Friday. When so many things are going on around you, it’s difficult to know for sure what you might be missing out on. Because of this, many people don’t want to pass the opportunity up. Although holiday timeshare promotions may seem legit, understand that sales teams are paid handsomely to close you quickly.

Why People Are Intrigued By Timeshare Holiday Deals.

Due to the business of the season, it can be an emotional time of year. Shoppers usually aren’t fully cognizant of what they’re doing due to fatigue and a never ending to-do list. Hectic schedules and deadlines force many to look for a method of rejuvenation when they’re on the last leg. Enter an appealing timeshare promotion. While the offer may initially catch people off-guard, the more they think about it, the more they feel like they deserve a vacation.

Some people have never thought about taking a legitimate vacation before. They might want to try to be the hero of Christmas or prove they can treat their family to something nice. Instead of thinking about the extent of the timeshare promotions, they might be blinded by the possibility. While this is normally the case for gullible buyers, it’s definitely magnified during the holidays. The frenzy of the season could easily be bypassed by an affordable trip to Branson, Missouri.

When salesmen go into detail about how timeshares are assets and that other family members and friends can use it, the intrigue continues to grow. But what normally gets people to sign the dotted line of perpetuity are the additional perks and free gifts presented to them. Consumers love free stuff, whether it be dinners, events, shows, resort stays or other forms of entertainment. If we could give you one word of advice, it would be to not take the free gift cards, tickets, vouchers and passes. Anybody that has to pay you in order to persuade you to buy what they’re selling can’t be trusted.

Avoid the Bait by Timeshare Conglomerates.

Discounts on vacations is a rarity in today’s society. Especially when it comes to a timeshare. Maintenance fees, special assessments and other surcharges make the purchase more than meets the eye. While the actual cost of most travel deals aren’t backbreaking, misleading timeshare promotions can definitely break your bank. Before committing to a resort and destination you’ve never been to, make sure you fully understand what you’re getting yourself into. 

Walking away from enticing offers during the holiday season is the best thing all consumers can do. Taking the bait of a timeshare promotion can leave you reeling for years to come. The last thing you’ll want is the continued reminder of a Holiday purchase that never resulted in any positive memories.

If you or someone you know feels trapped in a timeshare agreement, we’d love to help. A free consultation with one of our timeshare experts will provide you with clarity on next steps. If you’ve already made the decision to legally get out of a timeshare contract, you can always proceed with our qualification form below.

How to Go About Qualifying Timeshare Information on the Web

How to Go About Qualifying Timeshare Information on the Web

Whether timeshare owners enjoy their interval or not, most will tell you the distractions that come with the purchase can be quite overwhelming. From the resort’s high pressure upgrades to third party resale and exit programs, the noise of the industry is tremendous. Buyers that are unprepared for bombardment often endure a subpar experience. Those that avoid impulse decisions and invest time in qualifying timeshare information are usually familiar with an enjoyable one. It’s no secret that many owners regret their decision to buy one. But a lot of the time, how they manage the purchase isn’t always their fault.

As we’ve been analyzing the noise of timeshare travel over the past few weeks, we’ve noticed that there’s been one constant. Every claim, opinion or sales pitch has essentially derived from selfish ambition. No matter who’s presenting to fractional owners online, their purpose and goals are pretty much one sided. The consumer is rarely considered and often times led to believe in something that simply isn’t true.

At VOC, Accurate Timeshare Information is Important.

While most timeshare websites will do anything for your attention, we hope you find our blog refreshing and advantageous to your goals or desired outcomes as an owner. The last thing we want you to think is that we’re apart of the noise and trying to persuade you to cancel your timeshare contract. Although termination tends to be the best case scenario when you’re in financial trouble, making smart decisions is the most important thing every owner should do.

Qualifying timeshare information not only helps you avoid deceitful schemes, it allows you to make wise, confident decisions. This is where we want to help. If you’ve been tuning into our blog over the last year, you should have a good understanding for the way timeshare companies persuade potential buyers and their current owners. Aside from the resort, you should also know just how conniving predatory agencies can be. Even review platforms and oblivious, misinformed keyboard warriors can be pretty convincing these days. 

At VOC, we don’t want you to have to navigate these voices alone. Just the thought of it can be overwhelming. At the same time, knowledge is power. When you take the time to understand who is targeting you and why, then qualifying timeshare information becomes easy. Similar to finding the best deal on a car, you can’t rely on the salesman’s song and dance to guide you.

Avoid Making Lazy Timeshare Decisions

No timeshare owner wants to wonder which deal is real or regretfully pay for a property they don’t understand. But in order for them to see through the nonsense, they have to educate themselves on reality. We’ve been able to prove that you can’t believe everything you read on the web. In most cases, it’s not that easy to verify the advice you receive. But ignoring ambiguity here can be extremely costly. The good news is, we’ve put a lot of time into teaching consumers how to go about qualifying timeshare information.

Timeshare Information Worth Qualifying.

While the general public has enjoyed our exit fraud checklist and the coverage on the aforementioned topics, these aren’t the only channels in the ears of timeshare owners. So in our last installment of this series, we thought we’d highlight the remaining influential strategies that can fog the judgement of buyers and alter the enjoyment of their experience altogether. The reason why so many are misled online is the simple fact that sales driven organizations know more about the consumer than the consumer knows about them. So, hopefully this next section provides additional clarity on the intentions behind most timeshare spiels.

1. Resort Employees Are Often Incentivized.

Timeshare companies have now realized there is far greater potential when targeting people online. In the past, they were limited to telemarketing techniques, partnerships and even street teams. They now have the ability to publish and recycle digital content while leveraging consumer data to persuade people to buy or spend more. This benefits no one more than the resort’s employees – that are incentivized to sign up new members. 

Every fractional owner that is placed under a new perpetual agreement (first time buyers or upgrading owners) comes with a handsome reward. Since we already know prominent resorts often attempt to control the narrative in the timeshare industry, you have to assume employees are following suit. Any way they can garner a lead on the web will be maximized. While many keyboard warriors are motivated by a negative or misguided experience, some are simply an extension of the resort itself.

Moreover, the masterminds behind a majority of timeshare exit scams have been former resort employees. They know how to cater to the emotions of fraction owners and leverage their desire for a satisfactory experience. Online messages, chats and other forms of media can be used in a number of ways to garner some sort of payout for those affiliated (or formerly affiliated) with the resort. 

While some employees eventually choose to speak out against timeshare sales tactics, most of the communication is extremely biased and misleading. This is why qualifying all timeshare information, no matter how intelligent it sounds, can save you a lot of disappointment and even more money. When you don’t validate what you’re reading, there’s no telling who’s behind the ploy and what their intent actually is.

2. Affiliates & Third Party Referral Commissions.

When we discussed the maneuvers of timeshare review websites last month, we touched on the way these platforms utilize SEO and marketing to their advantage. Recently, timeshare companies have started to adopt this as well. Since they really only specialize in one thing, selling intervals, they’ve started hiring external agencies to decrease their acquisition costs. One of the ways they’ve set out to accomplish this is a quantitative approach called back-linking.

In this process, contracted digital arms (affiliate marketers or lead generators) direct online users to a unique website landing page by posting comments and publishing other forms of content online. Enticing, misleading messaging can be placed on articles of popular websites, social platforms or on any domain that allows display ads. The performance of the affiliate link is measured by the number of clicks, the time spent on the destination site and how many visitors convert (submit their personal information). Those managing the blasts are compensated based on the goals of the payer. 

We mention this element of influence because, like resort employees, these publishers are motivated by selfish ambition. They’re not exactly interested in communicating truth, rather persuading people to take action. By placing thousands of links across the internet, they know someone is bound to take the bait. Tons of people eventually fill out contact forms after stumbling across a phony comment that links to a free giveaway, guarantee or relevant solution. 

While an emotional owner (or enraged family member of one) can mislead a lot of people on the web, the greed of commissioned marketers is a lot more dangerous. Once a timeshare entity has your personal data, they can continue to bombard you with offers or alluring services however they please. By qualifying timeshare information and following the breadcrumbs (digital paper-trail) of these posts before taking action, you’ll realize most backlinks are nothing more than a mirage.

3. Timeshare Information Websites.

While the purpose of affiliate marketers and timeshare review platforms is to elicit leads for a payout, some websites look to gain authority within the marketplace. Although some of the content they publish is valuable, these operations tend to only publish insight that benefits them. For example, TUG (Timeshare User Group or TUG2) claims to be a “non-biased” user group platform but they apparently delete comments that don’t align with their personal agenda – which is to send timeshare owners to brokers through their platform. 

Since the website is run by a team of experienced digital marketers, they rank fairly well in search engines. This allows them to be visible on a number of online searches regarding timeshare ownership. The problem is, they spend a lot of time promoting resale programs and telling visitors it’s impossible to legally get out of timeshare contracts. When you analyze their comments, it’s easy to assume users actually work for TUG. What’s even more concerning is that they come off as a legitimate influence but details of their claims aren’t available unless you pay for a membership. 

Some former members have even claimed the site made their private information public. Other users have even pointed out some of TUG’s authors manage their own timeshare rental businesses. Since we’re not in the business of getting into keyboard cyber battles with biased teams of marketers, we’ll allow you to judge the narrative for yourself. Either way, a plethora of websites like this exist online. Qualifying timeshare information in these places will help you understand how greedy operations leverage false, baseless information to their advantage.

How to Qualify Timeshare Information on the Web.

Look, we live in an era where the internet’s information highway is at full throttle. Sadly, it’s difficult to find much truth about timeshares online right now. Far too many entrepreneurs, scam artists and marketers are blinded by the opportunities to make money off of vulnerable buyers. In order to avoid the narrow-mindedness of most forms of communication, you have to start qualifying timeshare information on your own.

Before you believe in something you read, you have to ask yourself a few questions. Is the person, account or company aggressively trying to alter my perception or persuade me to adopt theirs? Do they come across as selfish or arrogant? Does it seem like they’re more interested in getting me to listen to them instead of listening to me? Are their claims vague or irrelevant to what I’m seeking? Is what they’re communicating verifiable? If you’re unable to reach a level of confidence, then it’s never worth your time. 

At VOC, we take pride in being able to answer all of your questions and take into consideration your personal experience. Not every fractional owner views the purchase the same way. Not all disgruntled buyers need to get rid of timeshares. At the end of the day, owners simply deserve an ability to find an ideal solution that makes sense for them. But unless they’re committed to qualifying timeshare information, it’s going to be hard for them to know what to do.

Online Timeshare Advice by Keyboard Warriors Isn’t Usually Valid

Online Timeshare Advice by Keyboard Warriors Isn’t Usually Valid

When you think about it, credible information online can be difficult to come by. In a world full of people that are vying for the consumer’s attention, it’s not surprising that most information is nothing more than an opinion. Although finding dependable resources is becoming more popular amongst the general population, most people still aren’t sure what is actually believable. This is especially true when it comes to reasonable timeshare advice. Since most communication within this industry is rather aggressive, consumers are essentially forced to trust what seems to be the most ideal.

The problem is, most advice in the timeshare realm is questionable at best. While you might assume we’re writing this to promote the agenda of our cancellation services, it couldn’t be further from the truth. At the end of the day, we want to help potential buyers and current owners make favorable choices regarding timeshares. Knowing what you’re getting yourself into and who might mislead you along the way helps you avoid the inevitable disaster that follows an uninformed purchase of this magnitude. Consumers deserve to know the truth and we’re eager to share the efforts we’ve invested in to prove our communication is sincere.

Keyboard Warriors Can Be Very Persuasive.

Assessing the types of online messaging that timeshare owners come across while browsing the internet can’t be done in one article. So we decided to focus on what we believe to be the loudest voice in the digital world, the keyboard warriors. Whether they’re logged into social media accounts, chatrooms, message boards or website comment sections – these people are extremely motivated to share their opinions on a number of topics. It always seems like they have excessive time to burn and rarely waiver from their stance no matter how much factual information is presented to them.

Considering timeshare advice from those that seem to be credible is flat out dangerous. If you’re uninformed and looking for guidance, keyboard warriors can be awfully persuasive. Because they believe in something (or someone) so strongly, they feel like they have to influence people to adopt their perspective. They also think they have the right to verbally destroy (or type to death) anyone in opposition. Challengers often walk away from these types of digital arguments due to a person’s ignorance or lack of open-mindedness during the conversation.

Since a majority of remorseful buyers want to believe they can get out of expensive timeshare purchases for free, they tend to value the opinion of those who confidently spew timeshare advice. Especially when the resort hasn’t been helpful and they’re considering paying for exit services to avoid further penalties. Anything that encourages owners to remain optimistic, even if it’s inaccurate, clouds their judgment and causes them to avoid using logic.

What Kind of Timeshare Advice Can You Expect?

When seeking timeshare relief, owners normally have no idea where to begin. Most file complaints or join online conversations to share their story with users who’ve experienced similar misconduct. When complaints aren’t pursued to their satisfaction, they have no choice but to find someone who can advise them on what to do with their timeshare. Since many aren’t to the point of hiring a lawyer or cancellation firm, they ideally would like to find a way to work things out. The last thing they want to do is sign up for a scam or incur more penalties.

Inaccurate Input Regarding Timeshare Relief.

When the answers they receive tell them they’ve been lied to further, it’s believable. For the most part, disgruntled buyers have been deceived throughout the entire timeshare experience. Responses that arrogantly inform them that, “The resort will just take back the mortgage” or “You don’t need to pay to get rid of your timeshare,” can be misleading to say the least. 

Those on the verge of legally terminating their agreement with a legitimate company can be influenced to change their mind when they’re told, “All exit companies are scams” or “You shouldn’t hire them if they charge upfront fees.” Even owners that have wasted money trying to sell their interval can be encouraged to keep trying by a keyboard warrior lacking substance. In reality, there is no resale market for timeshares. There’s no way around it.

Believing that all resorts have a “take back program” is also untrue. The fact of the matter is, most do not. Even when one does exist, it’s very difficult for owners to qualify. Aside from being forced to pay off the entirety of the mortgage, owners are usually required to cover the anticipated cost of maintenance and assessment fees for the next couple of years. Something usually goes wrong and they remain stuck in perpetuity with additional expenses that range in the thousands. 

None of this timeshare advice is credible. While there are ways to work things out with the resort, you will most likely be funneled through a continued sales cycle and encouraged to purchase more to resolve your issue. Even if you’re able to process an equity trade in or interval transfer, it’s highly unlikely that it’ll resolve your underlying complaints. Often times, buyers upgrade into more problems or find themselves stuck in multiple agreements. Although a good portion of exit solutions are scams, not all are out to steal your money. At the end of the day, researching options through credible resources yourself is the best solution.

Refusing to Pay is Bad Timeshare Advice.

Although bias relief tips can prolong the process of actually exiting a timeshare contract, there are more serious ramifications that can result from listening to someone who has no business giving timeshare advice. If you’ve been told you can, “Just stop paying and walk away,” or that, “You can just foreclose on your own and nothing will happen,” guess again. In reality, the timeshare can come back and pursue you for a deficiency whenever they choose to. While the idea of telling the resort to kick rocks may sound good, not many decisions are worse.

An outstanding mortgage balance, interest, late surcharges, legal fees, court filing costs or past due maintenance and assessment fees will add up over time. The resort may not notify you right away, but they know what they’re doing. Just when you think you’re in the clear, they strike. If a judgement is filed, then you’ll have no control over how that money is taken. This gives the timeshare the right to forcefully collect from your bank account, garnish your wages or even enforce liens on personal property to settle dues. 

Are you okay with rolling the dice by calling the timeshare’s bluff? Is hoping for the best an ideal strategy when the resort is pursuing you for contractual default remedies? Even though some unhappy buyers ignore potential consequences, you should most definitely take the timeshare’s threats seriously. They have all the ammunition necessary to pursue contractual fees. Walking away due to displeasure isn’t going to win the battle that will transpire. And your choice to base this decision on a keyboard warrior’s comments is even more erratic.

How to Assess Timeshare Advice by Keyboard Warriors:

If you want to make smart timeshare decisions and avoid irrationality, then you have to inspect the sources that influence you. In today’s digital-driven society, anyone and everyone can voice their opinion online as a keyboard warrior. Who you’re paying attention to can not only alter your perception of reality, but create quite a bit of grief. In order to help you with these types of investigations, we’ve come up with three questions you need to ask yourself before acting on the information you read from bold voices online.

  1. Determine where online users are getting their “information” from. The easiest way is to ask them detailed questions about their statements. Without challenging them, ask how they “know” or what type of evidence they have to sustain their claim. In most cases, another uninformed party told them this or they’ve believed in the resort’s  misleading promises themselves. Some people simply refuse to admit their purchase was a mistake and expect it to work out. The more people they can influence to join in on their ignorance, the better they feel about it. Others simply read one biased article and now strangely consider themselves an expert on the topic.
  2. Do they have unique professional experience, training or resources that make them suitable to offer advice? If you’re unable to get anywhere with the question method then all you need to do is research the person. If the online profile doesn’t even have accurate credentials (name, title, contact info), then it’s pretty obvious they’re online surfers without much cause. A majority of people spewing out timeshare advice only claim to be experts. Without confirmation, consider their opinion nothing more than that.
  3. Are you able to validate their information from credible/documented sources or is it more bogus information? This is much different than the first suggestion. While many keyboard warriors are unable to substantiate their stance, some are able to supply you with sourced information. But this doesn’t always mean what they’re referring is accurate. Inspecting their provided resources is key to any validation of truth. When you take the time to properly assess the entirety of your argument, you’ll be able to gain clarity on what you can actually pursue as a fractional owner.

Most Online Input About Timeshares is Bogus.

Just because one person says that they walked away from their timeshare without any help or any penalty does not mean they are off the hook. On multiple occasions, we’ve received inquiries for help by owners dealing with 5-10 years of accrued fees. Like aforementioned, they don’t hear anything from the resort for years. Then out of the blue, they receive documentation that demands a lump sum within a certain amount of time, threatening legal action.

Uninformed people voice their opinions all the time online. We even ran into a situation on Facebook where a user was claiming to know the cost of our services. When another timeshare owner inquired about our pricing on one of our posts, our detailed answer was challenged by his errant remark. “Only $5000 up front,” he said. After looking through past correspondence with him, we confirmed we never even supplied him with a quote or had any correspondence with him to discuss our services. 

For whatever reason, he felt the need to provide this form of timeshare advice without any rhyme or reason. While we’ve yet to cross paths again, he more than likely received some industry quotes and felt his educated guess was valid. Maybe he didn’t like the idea of paying to cancel a timeshare and wanted to encourage others to be fearful of the expense. Either way, his efforts weren’t necessary nor valuable. While he didn’t deter the unhappy buyer from proceeding, these types of comments play a huge role in the decisions timeshare owners make.
