Learn why consulting and coaching franchises are great business opportunities.

Is your dream to own a consulting or coaching business but you simply don’t know where to start and is afraid it may be too difficult to establish yourself in the market? One good alternative to achieve your goals with the benefits of not having to start something from scratch and establish a brand from ground zero is to go the franchising model.

There are a series of franchises in the consulting and coaching industry that are expanding rapidly. By owning a franchise instead of an independent business you can rely on several advantages:

  • Recognized brand: many franchises in the consulting industry have established brands, many times worldwide, so you remove one key barrier for customer adoption;
  • Training: all franchises have training programs to get you started with a solid background and performing well;
  • Support: franchises typically have a strong support system, with phone and e-mail channels for any inquiries, plus many times local mentors that will help you every step of the way as you establish your new business;
  • Lead generation tools: many franchises have some well established marketing channels for lead generation with nationwide programs, plus you receive coaching on how to properly establish your local marketing to get new leads;
  • Proven models: as with any franchises, one of the biggest benefits is the fact you can leverage a model that has been proven in multiple locations, so you don’t need to go through the painful (and costly) burden of a lot of trial and error as typically independent business owners go through (many running out of capital before passing this phase);
  • Recurring revenue potential: many of these franchise models rely on customers who lock on a year or multi-year contract, so franchisees can benefit from building a portfolio of monthly customers generating recurring revenue for them.
