"My revenue is now well into six figures"
"I became a thebestof franchise in early 2006 and it has given me the opportunity to build a very significant business with high levels of residual income, which is great.
Our package of services - with online and direct marketing alongside networking - make it unique and cost-effective which means it's easy to differentiate ourselves from any competitors.
I've got a very high retention rate of existing customers - hardly anyone leaves me - and my annual revenues are now well into six figures. With a very low cost-base, this creates a significant profit that continues to grow steadily.
I enjoy hosting monthly social business networking events for my members and prospective clients and these events regularly attract up to 100 attendees. They are a very important part of my business now and they stimulate a lot of buzz about thebestof Richmond and have helped raise my public profile. It feels good to play an active part in the local business community and establish long-term relationships with like-minded business owners. It's this personal touch that really sets us apart from any potential competition.
We're a very friendly bunch and there's always someone to talk to. Our head office team provide excellent on-going support and I'm pleased to see they're not resting on their laurels and are continuing to innovate and develop our product so we stay at the cutting edge in this fast-moving marketplace.
Without a doubt, taking on a thebestof franchise was the best business decision I've ever made. It involves a fair amount of hard work, especially in the early years, but I've found it highly motivational, very rewarding, extremely enjoyable and ultimately very worthwhile."
