Inbound Closer is an internet marketing and sales training program that “teaches entrepreneurs the high-demand skill of building a full time income online by closing high ticket deals as a digital marketing consultant and earning $1,000+ daily commission checks in a $129 billion dollar industry.”
It’s one of many making money online courses that is centered around sales and it’s promoted by Payton Welch and his brother Taylor Welch. To put it simply it’s basically a how to course.
It shows you how to find clients and how you should close deals for those clients…but you have to do all the searching and closing yourself.
You might even have to put up an ad for this on different platforms to get interest…YIKES!
One of the main selling points of Inbound Closer ironically is that sales is a high demand skill.
Not only that, but a course like this gives people the hope that they can make money online. And while we have to be honest for this review…
Inbound Closer does come with some very helpful information to make money online and land some massive commission checks.
We’re going to review Inbound Closer to decide if it really is the best telemarketing course out there.
We’ll talk about whether telemarketing is the right online business model for you.
At the end, we’ll answer some of the most frequently asked questions regarding Inbound Closer and Telemarketing in general.
And most importantly, we’ll show you the exact system we used to build our own internet marketing business to over $40,000 a month in mostly passive income.
This system made us swear off telemarketing for good, because it uses some of the same skills in a much more powerful and profitable way!
But more on that later.
For now let’s hop into all things Inbound Closer!
They are brothers who are known for their sales skills. Taylor actually has a program of his own that he’s partnered up with Chris Evans on called Traffic and Funnels.
Although some may argue that it’s a scam and that Payton Welch is a scam artist… we would have to say after taking a deeper look that he’s the real deal.
Same with his brother Taylor, even if he just gave a Payton a rebranded version of his program.
However, it isn’t without good reason that Payton Welch has been questioned by some online. Their landing page is full of bold promises that are often red flags to determine scams.
It’s also not a good sign when your program has been written about in many different “get rich quick scheme” reviews.
Here’s just a couple of bold promises:
Payton Welch, who is a proud alum of the University of Memphis, and his brother, provide your basic online program about making money through the art of sales. In fact, it’s common knowledge in the high ticket industry that sales is a great way to make money.
In the course you have a basic landing page with navigation to get to the different parts of the training videos. This interface is very simple and straight forward. We even had a grandpa of one of our review team members test it out to make sure!
You get access to the daily commission check blueprint. This 2 module library walks you through everything you need to know and act upon to land your first high ticket client in just one week!
Personally, after going through this myself alongside our review team, we found that the training program is sound, but you need to make phone calls all the time every day to line your pockets with daily commission.
You get access to the Inbound Closer Accelerator as well. This is Payton’s 21 day zero to hero inbound closing system.
We have found that this part of the program is extremely helpful because just how much time and effort was put into it. Payton carefully crafted this closing system after nearly 3,200 calls and $40 million closed in business.
Safe to say, we think it’s effective!
You also get access to the inbound closer 7 and 8 figure earners with post call recordings that are broken down so that you can understand, learn, and apply these techniques.
Even though our review team has plenty of knowledge about sales, it’s always nice to see other programs offer people full call recordings.
In fact, people find it easier to get started with a course when they have a complete example of what a sales call looks like. After all, the hardest part to get started that most people agree on, is knowing where to go on a phone call.
If those 3 things weren’t enough for ya, you’ll be happy to find out that you get access to the inbound closer mastermind group.
Our review team had mixed reviews about this. Some said they found the inbound closer mastermind group helpful, while others found it mediocre.
On a positive note however, all of our review team agreed that having access to a network of online entrepreneurs is always helpful!
Last, but certainly not least, you get access to Taylor’s personal network of online entrepreneurs. This is separate from support. This network is where Taylor and other clients post opportunities for you to get in on.
Most require the ability to make good phone calls, but it was a feature of the program that surprised us and honestly, could have even been an upsell…but they give it to you as part of the course.
Another piece of course material is a 6 page pdf that is full of scripts you can follow along on your sales calls. Sticking the script helps as you get your phone skills down!
In fact, that’s the best recommendation we can give about this course…stick to the script.
Payton Welch, who sometimes people misspell as Peyton Welsh when doing some creeping around for inbound closer info, wears many hats. He’s a digital marketer, real estate investor, and overall businessman. His biggest claim to fame besides Inbound Closer is his old course called “Sales Mentor” which also teaches telemarketing.
As you’re doing research on Payton Welch’s course, we’re sure you’re just dying to know if he’s actually making money from the skillset he claims to teach. The truth is that Payton has made more than 3000 calls and has landed him with over $42,000,000 in sales. Notice how we said sales…not profit.
What he does land in profit, he tends to invest in real estate. Hmmmm.
Beyond just Inbound Closer though, he has a position as senior traffic advisor / digital marketing consultant for Traffic and Funnels. That’s the upsell course taught by his brother Taylor Welch and best friend Chris Evan.
As far as being an entrepreneur in the online business space, Payton really seems to be making his stride. Various sources point to his Payton Welch’s net worth being $2 million and growing.
It wasn’t always sun shines and rainbows for him though. In fact, just a few years ago he was just like you. He was working a shitty 9-5 that he hated, and then big brother came to the rescue. And no, we don’t mean the government.
His brother Taylor Welch, you know, the Traffic and Funnels guy, helped him turn his life around!
Sure, you might say to yourself: “Well shit guys, if anyone in my family was running a million dollar company, I’d be set for life just like Payton was luck to be!”. But you’d be wrong.
Payton Welch started from the bottom of his brothers company and had to work his way up. It was in starting from the bottom where Payton had all this growth. His growth with sales is what led to the creation of Inbound Closer and becoming a stellar telemarketer.
There was no secret to Payton’s success with inbound calls, it just took a crap ton of repetition. That is if you attack something with brute force long enough, eventually you’ll make some head way. That’s what happened. And Taylor Welch began to take notice of his little brothers big numbers. He began having Payton run sales training courses for Traffic and Funnels clients. This was the beginning of the subsidiary of Traffic and Funnels called Sales Mentor.
You’ll know exactly what we’re talking about if you’ve seen the Sales Mentor Youtube Ads. You’ve probably seen a similar script:
“Do you want to earn a living online?”
“Well, the reality is you have two options.”
“First, you could build a business like all these other two-hour webinars are telling you to do, and you can spend the next two years working 70-hour weeks, on top of your 9 to 5, until you get things off the ground. Nothing wrong with that,”
“But I’ll prove to you in a second why you’d actually be taking the long route because there’s another option. And just like the 1,621 people who’ve used that option to replace their 9 to 5 within 21 days, you’ll see, clear as day, how you can get all the good things you want.”
A quick google search will bring to light that the Inbound Closer course and certification actually operates under the Sales Mentor company name. You know, the course Payton Welch promoted way beforehand?
It’s no wonder why people everywhere are asking whether or not these courses are the same. They’re offered for different prices, but from what some people are saying online, the content is pretty similar.
But hey, the guy really isn’t all that bad. He actually offers more than just one free training video on YouTube that focus on his bread and butter, sales and marketing.
There’s no doubt that Payton and Taylor Welch are making big money. You can’t run a massive channel like theirs, spend thousands in paid advertising, and be broke.
A quick look at the Sales Mentor YouTube channel will show that they’ve only got 500 subs…pretty small numbers considering they have one video with north of 3 million views!
Why the crazy difference?
Odds are they use that video as an Ad pitch for the Inbound Closer program and Sales Mentor, talk about great inbound marketing!
It may be hard to believe, but the truth is that some internet marketing gurus and digital course creators can really be raking in the big bucks despite having such a small social following. They often keep a low profile and work when no one else is watching.
But if you just gauge his growth by his social media profiles like Instagram, you’ll notice it seems like he’s becoming someone just like Kevin David (Amazon) and Tai Lopez (self help).
He flashes an extravagant lifestyle to help add as social proof for those wanting to join his courses. And if that’s not the reasoning, it’s not like he hasn’t earned the right for those luxuries right?
There are some pretty strong opinions found on reddit about Inbound closer, however… here is what the people are saying on this thread:

Another user by the name Illustrious-Piano115 writes…
While sarcasm is certainly noted in the response…the writers frustration is understandable. They feel as though that the Inbound Closer advertising is misleading.
They feel that they are led to believe all they will need to do is be taking high ticket deals over the phone. Unfortunately, the truth is that they have to prospect to get their first high ticket client.
If they think “inbound closing” is this bad though, they should take a look at the affiliate marketing model! That’s even tougher!
Check out this one exchange on the same thread:
mcfidgi (the OP) replies by saying:
As you can see, Inbound closer definitely has a wide range of opinions swarming around. Some people think it’s the best thing since sliced bread, others think it’s a misleading sales course that turns you into a telemarketer for yourself.
Here’s some in-depth information on their upsell course if you were ever thinking of going beyond the $97 buy in.
Module 0 is essentially just your stereotypically introduction to any other online course like the Inbound Closer program. They go over the basics like some of the main points they want to cover, how to make it all work for you etc. In fact the very first lesson breaks down what you need to keep an eye on during this learning process and they even give you a printable note sheet as you start the full Inbound Closer journey.
After all the formalities, Payton begins talking about how inbound closing is the biggest opportunity in todays marketplace. Then he shows you how this whole certification thing is going to work and what you should focus on next.
Something that they included that is nice to see is their mindset lessons. It’s always important to have a healthy mindset when you are beginning to try something new.
The art of sales is all a mind game, especially when you’re an Inbound Closer. That’s actually what Payton covers in this first module. He thinks it’s the mindset that separates successful closers from unsuccessful ones. So, he shows what the right mindset is and gives you advice on how to stay there.
Next, Payton covers some different theories on life that could totally change your perception as to what’s possible to achieve as an Inbound Closer. Here’s some of what you’ll cover:
And would an online telemarketing course really be legit if it didn’t offer some bonus lessons like these?:
What you’re supposed to get at the end of this first module is that success as a closer all lies within your mind.
If you guessed by the title that it would be more mindset and motivation, you’d be absolutely right! But instead of Payton being on the videos you watch, this time it’s Eli Wilde who’s another one of the Sales mentor’s involved in the course.
Throughout this module he talks about why your confidence is crucial because for a client to hand you over money…they have to feel as though they’re talking to an expert.
After you guys get through that, he talks about sales as leadership and how to take your mindset as a closer to the next level. Eli also provides a unique way for you to look at sales. He says you’re not just another salesperson…you’re their guardian…you’re there to protect them from shady people.
Some more bonus modules you’ll find are:
At this point you FINALLY start getting into closing high ticket deals. Most of this module is taught by Eli Wilde. Be sure to take some notes here for sure, you’ll be glad to revisit them.
He also goes into how to prep for closes. Could you imagine that? Actually doing your due diligence before jumping on the call with someone…To be honest, you’ll be surprised how helpful something as small as this would be. It will really give you a stronger position on the call.
He also shares with you a list of “challenging” questions, that will really help the prospect dig deep and give you valuable information that can connect with them on a deeper level. And this time the bonus clips are from the one and only Taylor Welch!
Module 4 is basically just a continuation of the previous module. Eli, talks more deeply about what you should do before and during the calls, as well as closing confidently.
The truth is that if your prospect feels that you lack confidence or are dancing around certain questions they ask…they’ll be less likely to buy from you.
After that, Eli introduces you to one of their aggressive closing scripts. But note that this should only be used in specific situations.
This is the module that separates rookies from pros. Just like a build off of the last module, Eli runs you through how to handle objections. Handling objections properly allows you to appear confident and as the authority in the market.
By mastering objections the way Eli teaches you, you’ll be much more likely to close a deal than someone who does not know how to handle objections. He shows you some patterns and frameworks you can work with to stay poised and confident while on the phone.
Mastering objections will set you apart from 99% of other closers.
This is just a bonus module that will be unlocked once you go through and complete the first 5 modules. The idea with this module is that it is the icing on the cake that makes you a professional Inbound Closer.
After you pass your certification, you get access to the groups closers and owners network. Here you learn more about why continuous mentoring is important to your growth as an inbound closer. Lastly, they give you some templates to build on for your personal inbound closer bio.
Let’s just go head and give you some realistic expectations about this program and other programs that they try to upsell you on in inbound closer.
While it is true that the high ticket sales is a 129 billion market industry…it is very tough to make your entry as a newcomer.
Unlike the bold promise that Payton makes when you join, it is very difficult to land your first client in 21 days.
It is possible, but it is not common. They tell you that these results aren’t normal but they make sure the 3 week mark is engrained in your mind way before that.
In my opinion that is misleading.
For you to find any sort of success in this thriving 129 billion dollar industry and stuff your pockets full of cash, you have to work hard every day and follow the 6 page pdf to a T.
Most people also don’t understand that with Inbound Closer by itself, you aren’t given a client list to go out and prospect…
You have to come up with your own sales funnel and you have to work hard at it.
This is where the high ticket upsells start to come in…they do offer a list of prospects to at least get you calling faster…but you have to pay for it. More on that later though.
Generally speaking, as an average user of this program, you will find it hard to get the daily commission checks they talk about.
Keep in mind, for that to occur, you would have to make a sale every single day.
That alone is why it isn’t a top recommendation like other programs.
At this point you’re probably just wondering…
Yes Inbound Closer work’s as long as you put in the effort…but like I’ve said before, I personally think there are better ways.
As long as you study and watch all the video’s, you’re bound to make some money. It just won’t be right away as you have to get good at the actual inbound closing part.
If you were to google other Inbound Closer reviews online, you will find that they are certainly mixed…makes me wonder which reviews are real and which ones aren’t.
I will say this though, every member of our team agrees that inbound closing is much easier than cold call closing.
You can certainly make money with telemarketing, but if you’re gonna put in the amount of grueling work to become a telemarketer (which isn’t easy, trust me), you might as well bring in some REAL money.
The program that helped skyrocket my online business to $40,000+ per month teaches some of the same sales skills, but shows you how to monetize them in a much, MUCH more profitable way.
This is where there’s some relief.
Inbound Closer only cost a one time fee of $97, we’ve seen many a program that charges monthly subscriptions…not so for Inbound Closer, one time only!
Despite the thriving 129 billion dollar market, they are able to provide you with solid high level information for about $100.
Most people will find that they can afford that, and worst case scenario you don’t like it and ask for your money back guarantee…which is a no questions asked policy by the way.
Our review team has come to the conclusion that the program does offer very valuable information, but seems to be a high level affiliate marketing play with all the upsells for Traffic and Funnels and other affiliate marketing courses throughout.
Traffic and Funnels is a decent course in its own right…but appears way to much for our liking and screams upsell, it popped up like an ad everywhere!
It also takes a lot of skill to hit the numbers of business they do.
For what we’re about to talk about though, you really don’t need any skills on the phone. In fact you can communicate all through email if you wanted to!
Our review team has come across a program in the real estate industry that is next level!
Although it’s not real estate in the traditional sense, it’s all digital.
In my opinion, where Inbound Closer falls short is in scalability.
You can’t realistically expect to be able to make an infinite amount of phone calls every day, you are limited by time.
But what if you leverage it?
With this digital real estate program, you can have the phone ringing at every minute of the day and never have to pick up once!
Sound too good to be true? Of course it does! But it isn’t…in fact, business owners wish they had this skill!
All you have to do is build and rank a website and forward the jobs off to a business owner in town, you could even email it to them!
This works for literally any service based business, tree service, plumbing, towing, etc.
How do you get paid and how much?
Simple, after you forward the jobs off to a business owner and he makes some money off of them, you simply ask to make the deal beneficial for each other.
A fair price to charge per lead, depending on the industry is 10-20%…let’s just use the tree service industry for example and go by worst case scenario.
Let’s say you build and rank the site and only 10 jobs a month come in. The average tree service job is anywhere from $500-$2000!
That means at bare minimum you have an asset worth $500 a month!
See why they call it digital real estate now? That’s a rent payment.
The great thing is how easy it is to scale. You don’t have to answer the phone…all you have to do is get the phone to ring.
Remember inbound closer talking about daily commission checks?
This one actually allows you to collect that without being on the phone all day. Truly passive income!
The training program takes making money online to a whole other level. The owner of the program walks you through how to build and rank a site hand in hand, with the occasional voice over when he is sharing his screen.
You will learn the importance of keywords, website name, how to send call notifications via email, backlinking, etc.
Once the training program is completed you will also have access to a Facebook group much better than the inbound closer group in our opinion. This group is much more active.
What Business Model Is Best For You?Take The Quiz
Unlike inbound closer, where you’re the closer…these websites turn into your closer. A business will always want more leads and another job. In fact it doesn’t even matter that the job isn’t coming from their website name…they see it as it is…expanding digital real estate.
Compared to endless sales calls, more people have been able to walk away from their 9-5 job as well.
Now, you probably have tons of questions… So, check this out to learn more.
