How To Give Your Business Plan A Workout For January
The New Year is a time for taking stock and standing up; offering the perfect opportunity for a fresh start. It’s never too late to change career direction and try something different. At Rainbow, you can seize your dream of becoming a business owner and sell a tried and tested service with a superb support network behind you.
Our current franchisees have spoken at length about the joys of buying a franchise with Rainbow. Now the New Year is in full swing, it seems as good a time as any to try out for our team yourself. Here, we’ve put together some franchise business plan tips to help you impress the Rainbow recruiters at crunch time.
Specify and target
One of the best ways to prove your business acumen is by building a franchise plan that’s specific and targeted. Sprawling strategies that attempt to cover too much ground are often regarded as messy and unfocused as opposed to ambitious. You need to tighten things up and have a clear aim.
Consider what different people in certain regions could want/need from Rainbow. Do your research and think carefully about how your branch might be able to help and support a particular part of the UK.
Demonstrate finance control
There are few certainties in the franchise world, but a strong grasp of finance is essential to keep a business idea afloat. That’s why the Rainbow recruitment board love to see prospective franchisees demonstrate commercial acumen in their pitch.
If you can prove you have a good understanding of where (and how much) money is likely to enter and exit the business, you’ll show them you know what it takes to keep your franchise business going. What’s more, if you do secure a territory, you’ll have confidence in your ability to make a great return on investment.
Consider team roles
No business owner is bulletproof. We all have our strengths and weaknesses as individuals. Before you buy a franchise, it’s important to acknowledge what you’re good at, as well as the areas where you might need added support. This will help you to effectively recognise required roles within your company and what type of business owner you’re going to be.
Thorough evaluation of responsibilities in your franchise business branch will reflect your ability to identify (and address) potential issues before they become problems. Those who can strike that perfect balance between being ambitious and realistic always stand a better chance of sealing the franchise deal.
