Do alarm bells ring? Do you feel fearful? Are you suspicious of the business adviser? or do you leap into business with them through a lack of confidence in your own ability? None of these situations are ideal are they?
I tend to do business in a different way. My aim is to make the whole process of dealing with me and my company easy from the initial contact right through to my client being totally independent of me.
In fact this is one of our positioning statements 'Making franchising easy'.
With franchising being regulated in Australia, it certainly means that expert advice should be sought to avoid contravening The Franchising Code of Conduct. Developing a franchising proposition for any client is a daunting process without the right adviser. However seasoned, experienced franchising professionals should find the franchising process for any business, relatively simple as the right franchising consultant will be dealing with different types of franchising clients every day.
So, to get to the nitty gritty, is franchising;
If you've been told by a franchising consultant that franchising your business is a technically challenging process then this probably means that you are about to spend a GREAT deal of money with that company, and that right from the outset they are building a co-dependent relationship with you. This can mean that the tools and knowledge to operate independently after the franchise is developed, will not be provided.
This is how we at franchisingplus do business;
It's important to work with a franchising consultant you trust and actually like. Client relationships last for years so you don't want to work with someone who you are not aligned with. We feel the same about our clients, we need to like you too.
If you feel any of your advisers franchising or other are making your business processes seem 'technically challenging' you may consider moving to a professional who will make it easy to do business with them.
