No, you don’t. This is the best thing about a Bloomtools franchise - franchisees don’t need to have any technical skills because our experienced team at Bloomtools HQ designs and builds all the websites and tools you need so you can focus on servicing your customers and building your business. But you will need to have an understanding of the internet and technology, plus experience in sales and marketing and a passion for helping businesses grow and succeed.
Generally you will be looking at around $39,999 to purchase a Bloomtools franchise. The licence, training and your initial marketing total $39,999 plus you will need to factor in the cost of working capital, lawyers fees and equipment on top of this.
Absolutely not. When you buy a Bloomtools franchise, you are not just buying yourself a job - you are getting a solid business in a booming market that you can grow at your own pace. In these tough economic times, a Bloomtools franchise is a great option for someone that has found themselves out of a job and is after the security of their own business.
The return on investment is such that you will be able to hire sales and administration staff to help you get more clients and also have a network of resellers operating under you to grow your business even further (resellers are subject to the franchisor’s approval).
Bloomtools franchisees have the choice of running their business either from a shopfront or from a home office. Initially, most franchisees will choose to operate their business from their home or a small office, because they will have a fairly flexible schedule and will not require a full office.
However, as a franchisee builds their business and takes on more clients, it will be necessary for them to have a shopfront or office to operate from, so clients can come to them and so they can hire staff. If a franchisee chooses to operate from a shopfront, it must be designed and fitted out to match Bloomtools’ specifications.
Initially, Bloomtools franchisees can effectively operate their business without the assistance of staff. However, once the business starts growing and the number of clients increases, you will need to hire an administration assistant or project manager to help run the business and potentially more sales people to help grow your business.
Bloomtools HQ provides a comprehensive initial training program for all our franchisees followed by regular workshops, seminars, online training sessions and business coaching that cover the full spectrum, including:
Leads created from Bloomtools HQ’s marketing activities (eg. website or national advertising) will be directed to the appropriate franchisee based on their territory. Any leads that come directly to Bloomtools HQ will be distributed to the franchisees based on location.
Bloomtools HQ will conduct national marketing for the brand around Australia. This marketing will include a website, print and online advertising, search engine marketing, events, public relations and promotions.
In addition to this, individual franchisees will want to carry out additional marketing and lead generation strategies themselves, such as alliances, seminars and magazine/newspaper editorial in their local areas. Bloomtools provides advertising, public relations and marketing templates for franchisees to use and the HQ marketing team works with all the franchisees on their individual marketing requirements.
With the popularity of the internet today, it is essential for all small and medium businesses to have an online presence that is professional and up to date. This means there will never be a shortage of clients for franchisees and therefore, their earning potential is unlimited. When you pass through the interview stage of our franchising process, we will show you some working finance models to give you more of an idea on how much money you can make with a Bloomtools franchise.
