So, you’re considering a career in the business communications solutions industry – congratulations! As you might already know, telecommunications is a $1.4 trillion opportunity, making your earning potential in this growing market huge. Businesses today require 24/7, secure connectivity to operate at the highest levels and rise above the noise. A telecom franchise like AEON not only delivers the cutting-edge products and services that companies need, but they’re able to do it at a great value.
There are many benefits to choosing business communications solutions over other franchise opportunities. But what’s the best way to get started?
TIP #1 – FIND OUT IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT BACKGROUND TO SUCCEED.
Communication is the backbone of a successful business. The telecom business, especially, is all about connecting people through technology. If you’re a people person who is energized by helping clients find solutions to their business communications challenges, this industry might be a great fit for you!
To flourish as a telecom business owner, you’ll want to have some experience in a business or corporate setting – whether in sales and marketing or a management role. If you’ve ever done any consulting, that will be helpful too. It’s a customer service-oriented field, where strong networking abilities will be an advantage. With AEON, our Certified Sales Professionals will join you during meetings, but you’ll play an important role in building strong relationships with your clients and getting to know them on a personal level.
The good news is, many franchisors will offer you in-depth training so it’s okay if you’ve never owned and operated your own business before. And while you should be comfortable with basic computer tools, you don’t have to be an IT expert.
TIP #2 – LEARN ABOUT FRANCHISE FINANCING OPTIONS.
Maybe you’ve always thought you had what it takes to be your own boss but you didn’t know if it was possible financially. Luckily, there are plenty of financing options available to help you make your dreams of becoming a business owner a reality.
A telecom franchise like AEON is what is considered a low-cost franchise investment. That’s because the amount of capital it takes to get started is relatively low compared to other business investments. AEON franchisees should have about $65,900 in investment capital. If your credit is good you might be able to obtain a line of credit to fund a portion of the start-up costs.
Of course, once you get your business up and running, your earning potential is greatly increased. Business communications solutions franchises like AEON can offer long-term residual income, helping you see a positive ROI sooner.
TIP #3 – TALK TO THE FRANCHISOR AND FILL OUT AN APPLICATION.
A great first step in pursuing a future in the business communications solutions industry is to reach out to franchisors directly. Not only will you get answers to all of your burning questions, you’ll get detailed financial and operations information. Once you and the franchisor have decided it’s a match, you will begin the application process.
With an IT franchise like AEON, getting your new business off the ground and running is faster and easier than many other franchise opportunities. Just how fast is up to you.
