Starting a franchise can have many benefits, in addition to simply expanding your business. One of the biggest challenges of going about it is starting on the right foot with a plan that helps you facilitate growth. You may be wondering how to do this, and what kind of steps you can take to ensure you are on the best possible plan for your business. This is where we come in. Accurate Franchising has been helping business owners achieve their goals through franchising for over 30 years, and we can help you get started with yours. The transition from a successful business to a franchise can take a lot of time and planning, but with a franchise consulting firm that has experience as consultants and franchisors, you can rest assured that you are on the best possible course for your expansion. Here is how we can help you get started with a franchise.
Developing a Plan for Starting Your Franchise
Here at Accurate Franchising, we work directly with our clients to establish what needs to be done for their brand in order for it to develop and grow. No one understands a business more than its owner, so working with our clients can help us determine if their concept is franchise-worthy and that there is enough demand. The first step in doing this is to have the business owner fill out a franchise feasibility form. This study gives us further insight to the business model that is currently in place and how marketable it will be as a franchise. Once we determine there is potential for you to expand, we can move into creating a franchise development plan and structure.
The infrastructure of your franchise needs to be created with future owners in mind. Your infrastructure is the key into how your franchisees will succeed, so it needs to be well-thought out and include everything your franchisees will need. These include brand policies and procedures, an operations manual, training and support, the franchise disclosure document, and more.
Creating a Marketing Strategy with Accurate Franchising
After you have developed your infrastructure and systems to help franchisees get started with your concept, now we need to find prospects who are looking for an opportunity just like yours. Through our own market research and the information you have provided thus far, we can work together to establish a marketing strategy that pinpoints the demographics you are looking for and generate leads.
We offer lead generation strategies, which have worked favorably for many of our clients. In a year, we have even been able to generate as many as 40,000 to 50,000 franchise sales leads for our clients. Our strategies for franchise sales leads include things like updating the website, utilizing paid ads, creating targeted content, and more. By using these strategies, you can put yourself on the map as a franchise opportunity for potential prospects.
Promoting Growth for Your Franchise
Once you have some franchises up and running, now we can move into more in-depth marketing that involves national branding, as well as facilitate the growth of your individual franchises that are already established. We can help you through a franchise CRM, which can assist you with franchise sales leads, so you can maximize your time and focus more on other aspects of your franchise. In addition, we can even help you expand your brand internationally. Through targeted research, we have determined locations outside the United States that have demographics that may be apt for a franchise like yours.
We can work with you from the very beginning stages of expanding your business all the way through helping your established franchise grow. If you think your business is ready to make the transition into a franchise, we are here with everything you need to get started.
