Franchise business opportunity brochures

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Franchise business opportunity brochures

The vast majority of franchise businesses have their own purposely written franchise brochure giving important information regarding their franchise opportunity.

The purpose of the franchise brochure is to give a potential franchisee prospect relevant information about the franchise business that will enable them to make an informed decision on whether to pursue the franchise company’s franchise business offer. 

The Franchise brochure gives prospects an interesting and informed insight into the franchise business and its field of operation.

Trade secrets are never mentioned within a franchise company’s brochure but information that will be useful for a franchise prospect to make up their mind about the franchise business such as how profitable the business can be, why consider the business, what qualities people require to succeed, what the franchise business offers you, how much you can earn etc are usually mentioned.

Usually a franchise brochure is sent out by the franchise company upon receipt of a new enquiry from a franchise prospect.  Increasingly in these days of mass internet usage many prospects get very impatient about having to wait for the franchise brochure to arrive through the post, so with this in mind many franchise company’s now keep their franchise brochures in PDF format so they can send it out quickly to a prospect as an attachment to an email.

Franchise opportunity finding serious prospects

Saturday, January 24th, 2009
Franchise opportunity finding serious prospects

It can be so very time consuming searching for people who are genuine and serious franchise prospects. It can prove to be very costly on a franchise businesses resources. There are so many people out there who make an initial enquiry about a franchise business opportunity that are not remotely interested but for some unknown reason they feel the urge to submit the online enquiry form.

Many of these franchise business enquiries especially the ones that have enquired using online enquiry forms from various franchise business opportunity websites fill in the forms with bogus telephone numbers, email addresses or even bogus postal addresses! What is that all about I often ask myself? At least with these franchise business enquiries once their email as bounced back to you and you have found that their telephone number is false you can at least delete them from your records and forget about them!

The really time consuming and expensive so called franchise business prospects are those that go to the next stage of requesting an initial business meeting. There are numerous times that I have travelled upwards of 200 miles to meet a so-called prospect that fails to materialize. I have even had phone calls from franchise prospects whilst waiting for them to turn up saying unfortunately something as happened like my friends dog needs taking to the vets I do apologise can you come back to see me tomorrow! What! Or you travel down to the London docklands for a franchise prospect to say we don’t really like your franchise or brand but we just wanted to meet you, what is that all about! These days I personally request that on an initial visit that franchise prospects come to my office so then at least it cuts out some of the day-trippers and time wasters and also it is a good test of their commitment.

There is also another type of franchise business enquirer who almost goes the whole hog attending various meetings and they even send their initial fee knowing that they haven’t got the funds and that their cheque will bounce, I have had more than one of these and on each occasion that this as happened I have never ever been able to contact the person again afterwards, why do people do this? I have no answer to this last problem, suggestions are more than welcome.

Franchise industry marketing levy

Thursday, January 1st, 2009
Franchise industry marketing levy

It is a common practice within the franchise industry for a franchisor to charge their franchisees an ongoing monthly or annual fee as a contribution towards or in some cases to finance entirely some form of central advertising or marketing fund appropriate to the needs and idiosyncrasies of their particular franchise business.

Usually the franchisor will keep the marketing levy fund in a totally separate bank account and will produce yearly accounts to show where this money as being used.

At any time a franchisee usually as an automatic right to ask to view the latest copy of the marketing levy accounts. The marketing levy fund is not for the use of the franchisor it is entirely for the franchise businesses ongoing marketing and brand building requirements as an whole.

Franchisees although in most franchise businesses are made aware that most if not all local advertising and marketing is still down to them, the marketing levy is more for national advertising, marketing, publicity and building the franchise companies brand on a national level which in effect should benefit the complete franchise group of businesses.

Franchisors commitment to the franchise business

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008
Franchisors commitment to the franchise business

A franchisor should be totally committed to building and maintaining a highly professional and successful franchise network. A franchisor should expect that all franchisees will be 100% committed, and as such the franchisor should match their attitude with an equal commitment back towards their franchisees.

A franchisor should treat every single one of their franchisees as fundamentally importance to their own long term goals. A franchisor should consider a failure of any of their franchise businesses to be a reflection on their entire operation. A franchisee should be assured that the franchisor after having taken great pains to ensure that they are the right person to run the franchise business, will dedicate themselves wholeheartedly to the task of helping them make a great success of their business.

The franchisors business relationship with the franchisee needs to be based on joint co-operation, understanding and trust. There must be a mutual belief that if both the franchisor and franchisee are fully committed to making the franchise business successful, ultimately the franchisee will succeed.
