Questions Asked More Than Once:
Who is 5 STAR Direct Marketing?
Chris Williams born in Orange, CA and raised in San Diego, CA was the Founder of 5 STAR Restaurant Marketing LLC, which is now 5 STAR Direct Marketing Co. Since 2006, 5 STAR has helped several local independent restaurateurs with their marketing solutions and increased repeat business. With the small business owner in mind, 5 STAR Direct Marketing was created in 2009 to help them build their brand awareness to generate more leads, assist in sales training and get better marketing strategies in place.
Is there any long-term commitments?
Nope. All of our services are month-to-month. Yet,we do suggest when you become an active client/member, utilize what you’re given and taught for at least 12 months to make sure your business stays on the right track.
Is there only one Professional Category allowed in the Community?
Nope. Community wide, there could be more than one professional category. We have learned how to work strategically together, increasing the synergy among each other and helping others in the nurturing relationships. However in our Mastermind groups, there is only one profession per group.
How does this compare to other “Networking Referral Groups” (like BNI, LeTip)?
We love these groups and actually promote Referral Groups and other Networking Organizations! We don’t look at them as competitors at all. Many of our Clients and Members participate in these type of groups and often visit some groups.
Why don't you have long term-commitments or long-term contracts?
Because we don’t believe in long-term contracts that tie you down with point-less financial burdens. When Members begin experiencing results, they choose to stay with us as long as they'd like.
How did you come up with 5 STAR Direct Marketing?
By following the same model that has proven to work in every business and follow to this day: Network, Connect, Follow-up, Refer, Alliances and Educate. Then...implement and make changes accordingly.
Why are your costs so affordable?
We know there may be other costs towards new marketing campaigns, website enhancements or other sales collateral. We wanted to make sure you have it in your budget for the other things on the road of entrepreneurship.
Whom have you learned all these marketing strategies and techniques from?
Just by keeping up with the times and surviving through a lot of trial and error. By staying on top of technology. By just “doing” it and following through on implementation. From online courses and live training seminars. And a BIG THANKS to: All my past and current clients! Plus my mentors and friends- Joe Stumpf, Bill Glazer, Dan Kennedy, Seth Godin, Dan Sullivan, Zig Ziglar, John Jantsch, all my restaurant clients (former and current), Tony Robbins and Jairek Robbins and so many others strategic alliances and marketing coaches. Cheers to all of you!

I just don’t have the time to become successful and get organized. So, what do you expect me to do each week if I decide to become a Member?

What is your favorite pizza and favorite beer?
Wow! Great question. Pepperoni with artichoke hearts and portabella mushrooms. My favorite beer overall, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Stone, IPA.
Can I call you if I have an issue on a marketing strategy that I don’t get?
Of course. We can set up a scheduled time to talk about it.
Can I hire you to be my Outside Sales Rep or Admin?
No thank you. But I will be a great referral source for you and another sales voice in the crowd when we are networking together.

Sorry but the price is already on a "break".
